Honeyyyyyyyyy! First, Howwwwwwww y’all doing?! The Rona (Coronavirus) has majority of us social distancing, resisting the urge to download Tik Tok, cackling at memes, stressed about finances, and some are still resuming our normal schedules & working. Take a deep breath from the mini panic attacks you’ve probably experienced from all the stress these past weeks. We’ll be talking more about Rona later this week. Anyways, I’m calling this blog post my 1.5 post because I feel like this ties into my intro as well.
Thank you to everyone who has shared, commented, and uplifted me since the launch of this blog! My heart is so full!!
Can we talk about how HARD it is to START? And when I say start, I mean any goal or aspiration you have been procrastinating with. I must say personally, starting this blog has been difficult and I’ll tell you why:
- comparing myself to other bloggers content creators
- lacking the confidence that anyone would be interested in my content
- doubting that I would be able to commit with engagement
- waiting for the “right moment”
My anxiety was at an all time high!! I let small details consume my thoughts and lost track of the bigger picture. It became so debilitating that I ceased all progress with my blog. I was TRIPPING OK! The reassurance from my friends is really what kept me going. #SOLID
Social Media has been a blessing and a curse during this process and I’m pretty sure many of you can relate. It can motivate or demotivate you towards your goals based on other individuals’ progress you see on these apps. Flip that hesitancy and use social media to your advantage by:
- reaching out to an expert in your desired field for advice
- researching different styles/concepts to achieve your goal
- polling your followers for advice and ideas
- following & engaging with accounts with similar interests
STARTING has been one of the best moves I could have done. Not thinking about what anyone else has to say has been more than rewarding! Like my shirt says, BOSS BLACK WOMAN! I had to pull up my big girl pants and do this for me! S/O to all my friends and family that have supported me to this point! From accompanying me to shoots in booty shivering weather to helping with decide on a font for the blog. Special Thanks to my photographer Tyler & graphic designer TaiWAgency ! My next major goal is embarking on travel nursing by the Fall! I started by not renewing my apartment lease and slowly moving my belongings into a storage unit at my mom’s . Things are getting REAL!! Also, pray for ya girl because I have not lived with my mom since 2012! Whewwww Chile, I can hear all the black mom quotes from middle school resurfacing.
What are some goals you have started for 2020? What are some goals you’ve been placing on the back-burner ? Talk to me below!!
