First and foremost WELCOME!!!
I am so excited to start a new chapter of my journey with you guys and gals. Today is the 1st of December and as 2017 is coming close to an end I have been doing a lot of reflecting on this year. So for my first official blog I will be mentioning gratitude, perseverance, and becoming more aware of self throughout this year.
I will try to keep this as short and sweet as possible because in all honestly ya girl does not like to write. I might hire my 12 year old sister for the job.
Babaayyy let me tell ya'll about my 2017. It was filled with trials, tribulations and triumphs and ultimately had ya girl's head spinning; but I am grateful for them ALL. I am grateful for the relationships that I fought for, the relationships that I lost, and the relationships that I've gained.
A BIG shoutout to my bestfriends for holding me down no matter what. I LOVE YA'LL and ya'll stuck with me FO'EVA! *in my Cardi B voice*
I learned a lot more about myself this year. I learned that I still have some bad habits that I need to iron out. I learned that it is okay to not be perfect. I learned that I am perfectly imperfect. I learned to love my flaws. I learned that I need to let go of things that I know aren't good for me. I learned that I need to speak up EVEN more than I am. *I suffered from social anxiety* I learned about my strengths and weaknesses. I learned about my self-worth. I learned that I can't control the actions of anybody else but my own. I just learned so much about people, trust, loyalty and caring for those who genuinely care about me.
I've cried many tears, smiled many smiles, and cussed out a few people along the way. *I said I wasn't perfect* And I had my first solo show which was a HUGE success.
Shout out to everybody that came out and supported ya girl in reality, in spirit, and of course monetarily. Ya'll the real MVPs!
I curated a few other shows in the process. I am gaining a stronger voice in my art. I am taking more risks and believing in myself more. I didn't give up no matter how much I wanted to. I realized what is truly important to me in life. And at the end of the day I KNOW I will be just fine no matter what I face.
Let go and let GOD right?And despite if I rock with you or not anymore, each and everybody that I encountered throughout this year served a purpose; a purpose to help me grow and for that I say THANK YOU ALL!
That's all I got for now but I would love to hear ya'll stories about your 2017 journeys and what lessons this year has taught you.
