Two Things London Taught Us About Life


I do believe that life is short so when my sister said she was going to London to further her training as a master cosmetologist I couldn't turn down this opportunity.

Initially, I was shocked to hear that she was going to face her fear and travel so far from home.

There was a cheering stadium filled with chants on repeat in my head. 

It went with the happy dance I did as she announced her intentions over the phone.

She went through cosmetology school not once but twice.

A snafu prevented the first graduation. Many would have chalked it up to not-being-meant-to-be.

Not Rosalyn Snow a.k.a. CEO Snow.

She started all over and finished.

She is constantly evolving personally and professionally. 

Our visit to London set in motion many conversations that I've had the pleasure of reflecting on.

We took several trips down memory lane. 

I learned firsthand how we can all grow up within the same home, with the same parents and our perspectives be painted using completely different artistic styles that flavor our personalities.

Our conversations also taught me how important it is to stay mindful that life doesn't happen to us.

We create it. 

I had casually mentioned earlier in the year that I had never been to London and that I would love to visit someday. Our thoughts have power. 

There was no way that anyone could have convinced me that it would be through a trip with my sister who had never traveled outside the US before. 

There is a saying that you should simply state what you want and then let the Universe do the rest. 

Just say it emphatically. 

The "how" is none of your business.

This trip really brought that saying to life for me and taught me to be very careful what I ask for and think about. 


My sister stayed true to the voice tugging at her heart and it led her to London. 

The video was created to share London with you and inspire you to fall so in love with your dream that you are willing to compromise comfort to reach them. 


  • London is 5 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the US.
  • The flight from Atlanta was eight hours. 
  • The London Bridge was thought to be the Tower Bridge when it was purchased. Yes, they accidentally bought the wrong bridge! I guess that's why we sing," London Bridge is falling down."
