Hello all! I hope you had an amazing New Years!
I know it’s been since October since I’ve lasted spoke to you. To graduating college, traveling, working 2 jobs, quitting a job that was very unhealthy, working crazy retail hours, and also dealing with this thing called life. To be very honest with you all… I gave up. I gave up on myself. It wasn’t like ohhh I’m not getting any attention or anything of that nature. It was more on, I wasn’t consistent with my work neither myself. I needed to really dig deep into what I really wanted to pursue, finding myself, educating my mind more, expanding my thoughts and views on different cultures, REBRANDING, and etc.
So, if you’re new to my blog…
I welcome you with open arms. I’m here to say we all go through those stages in life where we shut down completely and just wonder why things happen the way they do.
I try not to worry so much on the future. Live in the now. I’m in this space where I feel more comfortable being more open with fresh blog posts. I look back at my older blog posts and think of ways areas I need to improve in, how can I improve, and the proper steps to take in order to find my niche. The important thing I’m about to say… It’s very cliché. However, it clicks into your mind.
There’s absolutely nothing is wrong with being yourself and being weird. The most important thing is that you were being yourself and nobody can EVER take that away from you.
We as creative individuals, we get so wrapped up into this box where creative blocks come and we overwhelmed ourselves by comparing our journey to others and seeing the lifestyle they live and hopelessly wish you were in their shoes. Stop.
Live your life. Create your life. Step out the box.
My mom gave me this book when I was going through this depression stage and it’s called “Acts of Faith” by Iyanla Vanzant
It’s a self-meditation book where it focuses on the people of color on yearly day-to-day basics where it covers mental, physical, and spiritual messages.
My favorite quote from this book is
“You live by grace, built by love.”
The reason I admire this quote so much is because it contradicts everything I previously stated. You are the resource. You’re the only one that’s in control with your life. You only have one life to live. I know we get into this sunken place where we feel confused, stuck, and misunderstood. However, if we continue to push (but not too hard) ourselves and be great. You know? Surround yourself with people who genuinely care about you and your dreams and vice versa.
The purpose of this post was to get my message out. I want to be heard. I want to speak out for those who have a hard time speaking up for themselves. I want to be that shoulder to lean on, and vice versa.
In the end of all of this, you are all you got.
Please take care of yourself.
See you next time.
