My name is NauBriana. I’m a 28 year old blogger of music, wellness & lifestyle. I have two baby girls, ages 3 and 1, we reside in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. I’m an Auction Coordinator but I am more passionate about being an Ambassador of the company’s Wellness Committee. I aspire to be a Music Project Manager & author of novels and an autobiography. I have a huge dream of owning my own label someday.
I grew up in the kind of household that kept my feelings completely bottled up-music and writing were the best ways to release my emotions. My lifestyle led to the habit of studying human behavior, people watching & documenting life’s experiences I wasn’t always able to express out loud.
In the past 10 years, due to being diagnosed with an eye disease, I’ve undergone two corneal transplants to restore my vision, experienced hearing loss, birthed a surprise baby, beat depression & lost 155 pounds. I’m very proud of my success so far!
In life, we'll either make decisions based on our core values/goals or our comfort zones. Some know they want change & others find out once opportunity arises, they actually just like the idea of change. ——————————————————– It can be a learning experience or the root cause of our unobtained success.
I always knew I wanted to become an author but these were the kinds of obstacles I had to overcome in order to pursue my own dreams. Luckily, these obstacles and experiences have molded me & allowed me to view life from a completely different perspective. It feels great to honestly say how ecstatic I am to live and build a new life I finally want to continue living for. Sharing my experiences has easily brought forth people from all walks of life including youth, young adults and adults. Most people are looking for guidance and support to keep pushing forward and I relate to every one of them, especially anyone that can relate to my story. They feel misunderstood and have a challenging time trying to understand, manage or breakthrough their own personal issues.
Music has encouraged me to share life’s experiences through “Music for the Soul Only.” After I officially launch, look forward to an autobiography that connects to the blog. I am aware I’ll lose a few friends & family for being upfront & telling my truth- I actually already have. But I had to be willing to walk alone and realize many that started with me, will not always finish. And what I can no longer allow is to continue losing myself & never fully walk in my purpose.
Oprah said it best during her 2018 Golden Globes Speech.
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud, and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.”
This isn’t what originally inspired me; it’s what keeps me committed to pursuing everything I desire.
So take a little time to Relate & Experience.
