HAPPY NEW YEEAARR...
Happy New Year Babes! How are you? I know it's been a minute since I've posted, December 13th to be exact, but I needed a little minute to breathe. I had been on GO since forever it seems like and I just needed a moment to recharge and refocus. Before 2017 rolled in, I really wanted to make sure I was doing everything I possibly could to be exactly who I want to be. I have literally jumped back and forth between inconsistency and procasination within the last three years and I've FINALLY had to have a real talk with myself, look myself in the mirror, ask myself what I wanted for me and my daughter and tell myself how I was going to get there.
Now I'm not big at all for the "New Year, New Me" stuff because I think majority of the people who say it end up going back to the old them by January 5th but I do believe in the New Year as a chance to cleanse your mind, body, soul and spirit and become rejuvenated with hope. I do believe the New Year signifies an awakening and if we're strategic and really serious about change, it can be the start to something amazing and life-changing.
This year I plan to go hard for what I want for my future. For instance, I absolutely LOVE makeup but because I'm still learning and can't apply it as flawlessly as some of my fellow YouTubers, I tend to shy away from posting makeup videos. I plan to get on camera and record videos while still learning along the way. No, I'm in no shape a makeup artist but I've learned a few things and don't mind sharing them with people. I plan to show more of my #OOTD and really play around with my fashion. I've gotten so boring in that department and I'm ready to step out the box more and have fun showing people my creative side! I've played it safe in the box for so long and it has gotten me absolutely nowhere. By throwing the box away, I'm truly emerging myself into the complete unknown and truly trusting my skills and abilities to lead the way.
Health is definitely something I'm focusing on this year! Not just for me but also for my daughter. I want to teach her good, healthy eating habits as well as making exercise a major priority in our lives versus an inconsistent past time. Even though I didn't choose the thick thigh life, it chose me, I still want to make sure I'm ALWAYS looking and feeling my best and daily exercise and diet plays a major role in that. I'm excited to see where this new lifestyle takes me!
In this new year, take the time to reflect on who you REALLY want to be and work harder than ever to become just that. We're not on this journey alone and as I learn and grow, I will pour it all back into you. Make sure that after you reflect, you shed the dead weight and you soar! I plan on sharing so much of myself including fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips, videos and tricks all while inspiring you to be the absolute best YOU you can be!
Cheers to an AMAZING 2017!
