I’ve been super-duper busy—I can’t seem to find time to settle down and just write on the blog. But today, I decided today was the day to do so and I have a lot of discuss with you all! First, I want to talk about what’s been going on in my life at this very moment. Can anyone say…too much? Yeah, way too much going on right now and I’m struggling trying to juggle more than one things at the same time. However, when there is a will there’s a way and plus—I love the feeling of being productive and busy…it beats being bored and clueless. Besides having to go to work from Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm; I’m working on building a new website and changes to Real Pointers, my fashion business which I can’t get into details until this summer and wedding stuff. By wedding stuff, I forgot to mention that I’ll be walking down the aisle…as a bridesmaid. (I know what ya’ll was thinking but let me enjoy my boyfriend/girlfriend stage, it’s not about me). I’m happy about it, but it requires a lot of time, sacrifices and effort. My boyfriend’s close cousin is getting married and she’s on top of everything. Her agenda does not contain the norm, it’s quite different: I have to attend certain meetings, volunteer and be involved by preparing for her dream wedding. With that being said, my twin’s wedding is coming up soon and I also have to be prepared for that as well. I have a major role being the designer of her wedding dress and coordinator. So yes, believe me when I say that I have A LOT going on right now.
Another thing I want to point out is my communication skills SUCKS! I have the tendency to block everybody out (mostly referring to my business partners and teammates), when things aren’t going as expected and I am realizing it now that it’s not a good habit for me to pick up. The only thing that’s been keeping me sane from losing it is Myleik Teele’s Podcast. I listen to it EVERY chance that I get and it always puts me back in a positive mood. It’s so inspirational and is one of the main reasons why I’m still pushing through so hard. There’s been a few pushbacks and delays, sometimes I ask God, “Is it really meant for me to do all of this? Can I really handle what I’m putting out in this world right now?” As much as I love writing, sketching and designing clothes—I get so weary. I let situations and people affect my emotions, which causes me to react by running away from my problems and not dealing with it. To make it worse, my problems aren’t even that big. In fact, it’s not big at all! I let every little crap get to me and it frustrates me because I know better. I know what kind of God I serve, I know that I’m a Queen and I know what I’m all about! That’s why it’s so important for me to read my bible and pray WITHOUT CEASING. God really do got this! At times, I’m a nervous wreck…you have to understand that I am human and I do make mistakes, things happen but I’m going to start communicating more and keep an update with what’s really going on. I’ve grown closer with my supporters and appreciate EVERYTHING about ya’ll. It’s only right that I give you all the respect/love back and more!
I wanna let you guys in about something personal—I’m practicing to use my voice LOUDER than ever this year. I’ve been doing a great job writing and discussing every topics posted on the blog, but I want to take it up a notch. At times, you have to understand that I am human and I do make mistakes, things happen but I’m going to start communicating more and keep an update with what’s really going on. I’ve grown closer with my supporters and appreciate EVERYTHING about ya’ll. I’m so obsessed with Snapchat! It’s been 3 days now and I just can’t get enough of it. That just comes to show you all how far I’ve came in this journey called Life. I was shy and HATED public speaking in the past. Recording myself on Snapchat and Instagram, actually helped me to gain some confidence. I love connecting with you all and sooner or later, I’ll jump on Periscope and who knows, maybe even create a Vlog. The changes I want to make is to be able to connect with you all more in a personal and deeper level. I want you all to see the REAL ME—without makeup/filters, revealing my goofy side, showing my other talents outside of blogging/social media and just being talkative. (Which you can find all of that on my Snapchat: Dhane03). This year is going to be the year ya’ll are going to get to know me better. I’m definitely looking forward to it and I hope you all too.
On that note: I want to end this by saying: just keep going. When you see nothing is going your way, know that there is something called faith. Don’t stop during the times where there’s no progress, when you’re ready—pick up where you left off. KEEP GOING. You can’t see it but it’s there, whatever you’re pursuing it’s still there waiting for you. Go out there and get it. Don’t worry about the time, people around you or the difficult hurdles. Remember and ALWAYS remember: You got this!
Thank you for being patient with me, I love you all dearly!
