2017 is Already Here!

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I’ve got a feeling that next year is going to be one for the books (in an AMAZING way)! I am so 3252ea4e-e3f1-4d0a-a903-6fe69260e443excited for the cool, new things that I will be offering this coming year on my blog. Plan to see more frequent posts on fashion, style, health & fitness, finances, confidence, relationships and so much more! This past year been my least favorite (to say the least!) and I’ll actually be discussing some my 2016 takeaways in the near future. 2017 has already started for me! If you want your next to be greater than your before, well sweetie, you’ve got to be prepared and ready with arms wide open. Fortune favors action. If someone came to you today and asked you how much you needed to start your business, would you know DOWN. TO. THE. CENT? If your favorite industry icon knocked at your door at this very moment, would you already have your stuff together, or would you have to get ready? Fam, we have to be ready for our dreams to collide with us. I know I’ll be ready to collide with mine. Stay tuned and get ready to enjoy the ride. 

The Burger King Incident

“When you hold yourself to the same standard in your work that you do as a friend, girlfriend, student, or otherwise, it pays off.” –Sophia Amoruso, #GIRLBOSS

Man, there’s nothing like being inspired! I’ve wanted this book forever and a day and I finally got it from Target! $13 and some change for knowledge that I can’t put a price on? Sold! Anyway..I’m going to be transparent here for a second…

I had a mini meltdown in the Burger King yesterday. I got to thinking about how I feel like my life after college has been such a bust—started working 2 jobs I’m not necessarily crazy about, I have more debt in my life than I’d like to admit, and I still have so many things I want and NEED to do. And while all of this is going on, the little voice inside my head (and heart) is screaming to be heard. “You have an audience, a people to save…They’re waiting on you!” That voice is getting louder and less easy to ignore. All of the pressure is too much sometimes (to say the least). Juggling life and expectations carries a greater weight than I care to bear sometimes. All I truly want is to help others find themselves, make my parents’ sacrifices worth it, and have my independence.

So I’m walking through Target’s book section with my boyfriend after the Burger King incident. And I come across, what it seems to be, the answer to a heart prayer. I immediately crack open its pages and breathe a sigh of relief. I’m only shy thirty pages into the God-send, and she’s already pouring out a crazy amount of knowledge about finding and trusting self, coupled with sound business tips and advice.

When I find little gems like #GIRLBOSS along the way, I can hear God’s voice saying “Daughter I am still here with you.” I just love it when He gives out those little knowledge nuggets to help us keep going.

Moral of the story: I’m still a work in progress.

All my love,

AM
