Man what a year it’s been. 2019 has been packed with numerous surprises. I am amazed and outdone. I can’t believe how fast it flew by. Like in the blink of an eye. It had it’s bumps and mountains but chile, I have to say this year has been good to me. I had so many goals and plans but I have to say God had a completely different story to tell. As December draws to a close, I feel obligated to recap 2019 and “celebrate the wins.” But if you haven’t noticed, I haven’t written since November and the vibes are totally different. I’ve just shifted into a completely different mindset. I don’t want to talk about goals or dreams or work or grind. I want to chat briefly about living and living in your truth. In the age of stunts and doing it for the gram, I find comfort in not doing the most lol. Ever since I moved to Atlanta, everything has slowed down. I don’t feel pressured to try and keep up. I finally feel like I can take a break from the hustle and bustle and just breathe.
As we close the year and dive head first into 2020, I want to encourage you to pause and take a moment for yourself. Not for the sake of self care but for the sake of mental and spiritual clarity and getting to know Y O U. Ask yourself the simple questions. Are you happy? Where’s your joy coming from? Have you connected to the source lately? Take a moment to do a lot of nothing because sometimes you’ll find enlightenment in that nothing or in the peace that comes from silence and breathing. I’ve decided I don’t want to set these lofty goals for 2020. I think I’ll embrace the “flow” in 2020. I don’t want to force it. And as much as I know all the hustlers and grinders would hate to hear it lol, I gotta take a moment for myself. I don’t want to put all that pressure on myself. I want to let God take the lead. I’ve been in straight hustle and grind mode. I think I deserve a little rest lol. I guess 2020 will be a semi-gap year. I know myself so I know I won’t be able to sit completely still but I’m trying to ride a less stressful wave in 2020. You know the vibes lol.
To everyone that’s been rocking with me this year, I truly appreciate you. Y’all really have no idea. I was real close to calling it quits because I feel like no one reads my stuff but Everyday Rae is my baby, I can’t neglect her. 2020 will bring some much needed updates and a new level of dedication. I hope y’all stay down for the ride. I’m praying that 2019 treated you all well and I’m praying that 2020 will be the level up you always dreamed of. I’m sure 2020 will bless you with some much needed clarity because I mean…. Duh it’s 2020 lol. Always remember to live life on your own terms. Period. No one has to live with the consequences of your actions but you. Every new day you see is another chance to get it right, and who knows what that actually looks like lol.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you All! I love y’all dearly, forrreal, I swear. I will see you all next year tribe! Peace & Blessings!
