Wow, I cannot believe that this year is almost over. I am currently sitting at home watching ” Living Single ” with Queen Latifah and I decided that this post was something that needed to be written down. This year has definitely been a year filled with ups and downs but I was able to get through it all. I did stumble a bit, I took some time off blogging and I even took a small break from Instagram because I wanted to get my life together. Social media definitely changed even more this year and I can honestly say that so many doors have opened for me.
I will be nothing but authentic when it comes to my Social Media and my blog!
Around the middle of the year I was obsessing over numbers and forgetting why I started blogging and posting on Instagram in the first place. I even contemplated quitting blogging because everything was changing and I was at a standstill.
But I just needed to remember why I started in the first place and make a massive change.
One thing that I want to say that does get on my ever loving nerve would be:
* Give Credit when Credit is due
* Say thank you
* Ask nicely
* Don’t be pushy
I dislike when you help someone and you don’t even get the credit you deserve for helping them create their content. It bothers me when I go out of my way for someone and it’s not reciprocated.
This is somewhat a touchy subject for me.
This year has been a test for me. I definitely cut a lot people out of my life this year.
Because I didn’t want to be around people who only had me in their lives because they needed things from me. I put my foot down and decided that I wasn’t going to let ANYONE take advantage of me anymore. In the beginning of the year..I lost my voice but now I have gotten it back. I refuse to hide my voice when something bothers me and I also tell it like it is.
I hate it if I voice whatever bothers me I am deemed mean or rude but fuck it…If you don’t like it then tough luck.
I am going to be living for me and no one else. I am leaving all the negative thoughts that I had right here in 2017 & the fake friends as well!
I will not be taking it into the New Year.
My family is an emotional bunch.
We yell, we curse, we fight, more cursing, we laugh, more cursing, we eat & curse some more. Yeah, we curse a lot but not really around my Mum. My siblings and I ( I have 4 siblings ) on the other hand…we have a group chat and we just insult each other.
We are in the process of trying to convince our Mother to get an iPhone. A battle that I have been failing for practically the whole year. If anyone can give me any pointers on how to convince her then please let me know!
Even though we fight and we get on each others nerve…I do love my crazy ass family.
Overall my year was crazy but it has made me into the woman I am right now as I am typing this.
PS: I still cannot get over the fact that I worked with Taye Diggs, Worked on Chris Brown’s Fashion Line during Crystal Couture and countless photoshoots! It’s still surreal!
Time to bring in the New Year with a bang!!!
