It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me. Recently, I lost a high school friend (this I will leave for another post) and I’ve been having trouble getting back into the swing of things. I missed my hands tapping on these keys…writing is my passion – I live it daily! I am so grateful I have weathered the storm and I’m excited for a new year with a better version of me. I am happy that I took the time to grieve and allowed myself that extra space that I so needed with my family. Now I’m welcoming the New Year with open arms.
Anyone who knows me knows that I can’t stand resolutions but I am all about creating goals and bringing positive energy in for the New Year. What you see on Instagram and all of my other social media platforms is what you get in real life. I am very vulnerable on social media and I let you know what’s going on because that’s the way I am in real life. I knew I wasn’t at my best so I didn’t write an end of the year post or a New Year post. This is my “better me” post instead.
It’s not just because it’s the new year that I am writing this post. I am writing because I took the time to grieve that passing of my dear friend. I also took time to reflect on life and what I want from it. In the last few weeks, I connected with my tribe and my sisters and brothers who I know I can confide in. I shared my dreams, aspirations and goals. I know what I need to do for me, not for anyone else. I am clear and focused and ready to continue on my journey of being a better me in all aspects of my life.
As I write this small post (because these short ones aren’t my usual… lol) this is just a warm up of what’s yet to come. I am feeling even more confident than ever and I am feeling strong in all aspects of my career. I suggest that you, if you’re going through something, anything …allow yourself that time to reconnect with yourself, your family and your positive tribe. I truly believe it’s what has made me stronger over these past couple of weeks and allowed me to come out in BEAST MODE! I hope you find some inspiration in this post. One of my goals is to remind you that you don’t have to do what others are doing – just always be a BETTER YOU. Never change for anyone (this I know we all know) whether it be just to get noticed or to stand out a little more. You can stand out in your own unique way. This is actually a strong part of my goals this year. I will continue to work at my pace… slow and steady wins the race, and I am cool with that!
Have a great year becoming a better you and always take time to reflect upon where you have come and where you are now in addition to where you see yourself going in the future!
