So you know how you go back and forth with yourself about sharing something or not sharing something? You want to be helpful but you don’t want to share too much INFO.
WELL THAT IS ME! …. AND THAT IS ME ALL THE TIME!
However lately I have found myself sharing things with my circle that they would have never known had I not said anything. They would not have ever understood unless I told them. I feel like I am doing the people that follow me AN INJUSTICE! Whether you are following me in real life or on SOCIAL MEDIA … I have failed you and I am finally ok with admitting it! 🙂
I make this look so easy. The smiles.. the laughs… the events.. the responsibilities.. the leadership roles.. the mentoring.. the career path… the relationships.. the life! Never saying “no”! I make it look so easy BUT IT IS NOT!
This week, I had a conversation with my favorite aunt!
Favorite Aunt: “Moo – some of this stuff (she said something else, but out of respect for some of my followers… but you get it!) you doing, you got to let go! You are 28, no kids, a career – you have to start taking time for yourself… YOU ARE TOO YOUNG!” (Yeah my nickname in my family is MOO MOO.. a story for another day!)
Favorite Aunt: “Moo – do you ever slow down? Do you ever take time for yourself?”
Me: “Yeah, I am actually planning to do something over Christmas Break, for like two weeks!”
Favorite Aunt: “Moo – that isn’t quick enough nor is that enough time for you! You have to find something to do that is for you!”
I often think it is funny when people ask “do you ever slow down”? I feel like how is anything going to get done if I AM NOT DOING IT! However hearing the tone in her voice made me realize THE ANSWER IS HELL NO to the question and I needed to slow down and find something to do just for me!
So in my process of slowing down… I am going to spend time here! Writing, reading and sharing, the three things that I have realized I love to do the most. Some of the things here, you will be able to figure out who I am referencing, some you won’t! Some of the things here will be personal. Some will be painful. Some things here will be solely for entertainment! I am creating my own space for you to totally vibe with me! Now of course, in return I hope to help another young ambitious, courageous, career oriented, beautiful, involved, talented, motivated, woke and selfless woman achieve her goals. However my first goal is to totally do something I want to do! The light bulb finally went off.
The part that makes this challenging is that it is major growth for me. I am challenging myself to be BOLD and to stand in a lot of my truths with this blog. I am exhibiting the advice I give to Lexi, Faith and Kam about being honest about their own desires and goals. I am honoring Tenesha, Stephanie and Bridgette. I am channelling the inner Jo-ISSA in this blog. LOL
I am writing because that is what I want to do! Ya’ll might enjoy but this is really for me!
I am reading, my text messages, this blog, random books and articles because I love to be informed.
I am sharing the nuggets I have gained along the way…. I am sure I can keep your hands full!
