For those who have followed this blog for some time and have stayed faithful in spite of my unscheduled hiatuses, I think it’s best that I catch you up to speed on what’s been going on with me. The big question is: where do I even start?
Well, the good news is that I’m once again employed, this time at a mental health facility. Although I have only recently begun working there, I see so much opportunity for growth, personal and professional. Even it what could be described as a chaotic environment, my hope is that I’m finally able to put my training to work and help my clients become the best versions of themselves that they can be.
Also in “good news”: my quarantine enabled me to start a new clothing and accessories line. Radically Beautiful was born out of the idea that we all have beauty within us, and we should be free to express it. I have BIG plans to expand the line as time goes on, but for now I appreciate your support. Click here to take a look, buy a piece or two, and spread the word!
As for me personally, this year has been quite the ride. Like many others, the political climate, the pandemic, and the general rigors of my own personal life have presented more challenges than I was expecting to face. All of the dreams I had for enjoying my 30th year were eliminated due to circumstances beyond my control. I lamented the concerts that were canceled, outing that I couldn’t take, and trips that will have to wait until… well, who knows? In the midst of this, it was easy to get depressed and down on myself and I often did.
However, I also took the time to sit with myself and find out what I truly wanted out of this life. More than anything else, I want to be remembered as a positive force for change in the world, especially for women. I want to show women that they do not have to let their trauma, heartbreak, or challenges keep them from living in their greatness. I want to ensure that I remind women that they too are worthy of the love, attention, and energy that they pour into others. How I am going to accomplish this remains to be seen, but just having the full clarity of what I want my life’s work to be is worthy of celebration. With that being said, I am going to curl up with a hot cup of tea and rest up. It seems as if I have quite the journey ahead of me.
