Mya's Latest Adventure Will Inspire You To Get Your 2020 Bucket List All The Way Together

Life is too short to not do all the sh*t that makes you feel alive.

This year, we lost Nipsey Hussle, John Witherspoon, Toni Morrison, Diahann Carroll, and most recently, up-and-coming rapper, Juice WRLD, who at the time of his death was only 21 years old. While the list of stars and loved ones who were taken from us in 2019 can go on and on, one thing that doesn't is time. Life is too short to not do all the sh*t that makes you feel alive, and R&B singer, Mya's latest adventure is a testament to this fact.

40 is the new 20. If you don't believe me, just ask Black women. The 40-year-old Girls Cruise star recently proved that it's never too late to start living with her bucket-list-worthy trip to Mauritius island, where she (intentionally) jumped out of a plane that was 10,000 feet in the air and got a birds-eye view of Mother Africa as well as "one hell of a colon cleanse".

This isn't the first time Mya's jumped out of a plane and it probably won't be the last. From transitioning into a fully vegan lifestyle to crossing off adventures on her bucket list, the singer has been focused on making the most of her time here on earth, and she doesn't plan on letting up anytime soon.

It's easier to complain about what you don't have than to actually do what you can with what you do have, and that's exactly why it's time to book that trip to Peru, take that rock climbing course, go on that hike. Don't let your bucket list collect dust until you're actually ready to kick the bucket, sis.

SZA is no stranger to discussing her mental health struggles and her experiences with anxiety. In 2021, the “Good Days” singer tweeted about having “debilitating anxiety” that causes her to shield away from the public. Unfortunately, she still has those same struggles today and opened up about it during Community Voices 100th episode for Mental Health Awareness Month. While SZA enjoys making music, she’s not a fan of the spotlight, which may be surprising to many.

For some time now, the Human Design System has been picking up mainstream traction! And like so many other explorative journeys, the concept of Human Design took off via social media. Similar to Astrology, Human Design requires your birth time and date, and it also provides a map of sorts to help you navigate this world with purpose while being uniquely you (and tapping into your purpose). In fact, if you desire, the information can work simultaneously with Astrology.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.
