Hello beautiful people! It is finally 2016. After my post about The Glo Up, I really started taking a more investigative look at my life. I really wanted to track my failures and see how they could have been successes or how I could have changed my 2015. What I found was that I need to do more things for me. That’s really all it boils down to. Life has a way of pulling you away from your dreams and I have allowed that to happen so many times. I’m so focused on paying bills that I really don’t focus on the things that will really make life worth living. It can’t always be about working that 9-5, eating, sleeping and then repeating. It is absolutely necessary for us to have a life outside of a “job”. Some of you are blessed to have your job be that dream career already, this is not for you. This is for those of us who get off at 5pm, home by 6 and then asleep by 8 to do it all over again. No late night club rendezvous. No costly dinners. Just constant budgeting and working. Once you get stuck in this rut, it is nearly impossible to get out.
As part of this new step, I am happy to announce that I will be joining the Blavity team as a 2016 Fellow for Blavity Life. I’ve loved reading this publication for some time now and I am so happy to be part of the community. What does this mean for my blog? I’ll still be posting here and trying to grow my audience. All this means is that I am not going to let my day job dictate my life. I am also going to give 110% to the things that really make me…me.
Here’s to a healthy, wealthy and happy new year!
