Mrs Midland States International™ 2019


Rian Valentine

 

what good habit do you wish you'd started earlier?
Yoga. I never saw myself as someone who would be a "yogi". I was pretty traditional in my spirituality and my workouts. I didn't see that yoga is truly about "me" time. It is about taking time for yourself and taking care of yourself. The two things I make time for everyday is prayer and yoga and it's truly been the best match for me physically and mentally.


what concerns do you have with the future?
The divide in this country concerns me on a daily basis. Being in an interracial marriage, we have always been advocates for the importance of accepting anyone and everyone regardless of their backgrounds. I feel that people are more than ever being divided by so many things, and I feel that this country is always at its best when we come together and compromise. As they say, the truth of every situation is typically somewhere in the middle.


what do you most enjoy about traveling?
It's the only time that I am guaranteed that my husband and I can just hang out and have fun. We both are so busy with work and philanthropy, that we sometimes don't get to just have time with each other. We make sure to travel as much as possible and take that time to do what we love and explore new places and adventures. We both love the ocean, so we typically go at least twice a year to snorkel and do something new like parasailing. It's my favorite time because it's just the two of us and lots of good food!


what do you like most about your age?
I love that I am old enough to be able to enjoy my hard work, to have built a large group of family and friends, and that I am truly blessed because of what I have been able to accomplish so far in my life. I also love that I am young enough to still have so much ahead of me, the energy to accomplish even more things off my dream list and that I know that the best is yet to come. This year is a big birthday at 40, and I am so excited to see what the next decade will have to offer!
