Under Construction. Coming back soon.

Hello Again!


Happy Summer!   I can't believe it's been two years since my last post!!  I've been away for way too long and I know it (blame Covid, Monkeypox, and everything else going on right now).  A lot has happened and changed since my last post.  My relationship status changed, my financial status changed, went through some health challenges, and more.  This past year in particular has been a roller coaster.  One of those big, steep, scary roller coasters too.  The highs have been super high, and the lows have been extremely low.  

On a high note, I have traveled to some new places (Aruba, Houston, and more) and connected with some great people along the way.  As a result, I've been officially bitten by the travel bug.  I'm three weeks out from my last trip and already working on my next couple of trips.  

On another high note, I started getting paid from social media this year!!  It was a small start but it has been steadily increasing!  Now I'm ready to take it to the next level! I have to put in the work though.

On a not so high note, I've had to deal with some serious health issues this past year.  Some of it was self inflicted, but not all.  Either way, it's been tough at times.  It felt like one of the lowest points in my entire life :(.  Things are getting better, but I'm still healing emotionally and mentally.

Also, I am single again after years of being in a relationship.  It was my decision and I'm over him.  I just wish I would've left sooner lol.  The lesson here is to listen to that little voice (or gut feeling).  It won't steer you wrong.  I'm dating again but I'm not in a rush.

Lastly, I'm now dealing with aging parents.  I knew it would come one day but didn't think it would be so soon.   This is one of the major cons of being an only child!  But I'm working through it!

I've had a lot of alone time this past year.  More alone time than I've had in my entire life.  It can be a good or bad thing.  For me, it's been mostly good.  I've been using my alone time to work on myself; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  It's easier said than done, but it's for the greater good.

I got braces this year!

During this time, I've discovered a lot about myself, both good and not so good.  Why I do some of the things I do,  why I think the way I think, how I got to my current situation, and more.  Some hard truths have been revealed during this process.  Some things are a result of my childhood and upbringing.  Other things are a direct result of my own b.s.  It's easy to point the finger at others or blame someone else.  But taking accountability for your own b.s. is much more liberating.

I've come to realize that I'm not as perfect as I thought I was lol.  But who is?  I'm not a bad person (I try not to be).  But there's room for improvement.  And that's okay!  It will take time.  This will not be an overnight change.  In fact, self improvement is a life long journey.  We should never stop learning and becoming better people.  

 As long as I continue doing the work needed to improve myself, things can only get better! ;)  


  1. Its true self-improvement is a lifelong journey. And it's okay to realize that you're not as perfect as you thought. Because, in reality, nobody is perfect! We can always strive to be better individuals, though, which counts.
