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.

Listen, I know we all say that Black doesn't crack. Still, that doesn't mean we shouldn't be proactive about maintaining our melanin on a regular basis. Personally, the older that I get, the more interested I've become in oils that come with a myriad of all-natural beauty benefits. And while sweet almond, grapeseed, avocado and rosemary are my personal faves, something that has been piquing my interest more and more is amla oil.

While snapping back quickly after having a baby has become something celebrated in pop culture, many celebrities are beginning to speak out against it. Celebs like Beyoncé, Tia Mowry and more have opened up about the pressure to shed their baby weight fast and get back to their pre-baby body.

Describing the last year and seven months as challenging would be an understatement. While many of us went from working in an office to our living rooms virtually overnight, employers are slowly beginning to reopen offices for those that are eager to get back to some sense of normality. I get a mixed reaction when asking people how they feel about re-entering the work space.

Y'all know we love a multi-hyphenate. Adrienne Bailon is that and then some.
