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.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
