Everyone dreams of being something, or someone, of some importance in life. The hard part to that is actually running after that dream full force. There comes so many times when you get tired and want to quit, you get exhausted, there comes millions of distractions, and sometimes you just lose motivation.  In my case, love distracts me from pursuing my dreams. Whether it be family, friends, or a special someone, I always want to be close to the people that I care about and love. Sad, but amazing thing is that God has blessed me to go different places and touch many other different people. I can honestly say that everywhere I go I have a positive effect on multiple people’s lives and at first I was confused at how I can help people so much while my life is hectic but then I noticed that helping people along the way to success is actually a beautiful thing and it makes me into the joyful person that I am today.

P.S. just because I look mean on Instagram does not mean I’m actually like that.  Once you are in my presence you can see the person I really am but that is a gift and it is not granted to everyone… or just not granted yet lol.

As I am growing and getting older, I am realizing that I can not let anyone or anything hold me back any longer because I am seeing how the idea of being “temporary” is appealing to everyone that lives in this day and age. Also, being ultra giving is my weakness. I conform to others needs and put their needs before mine and I am learning that if I am going to go anywhere in life then that has to cease. I am on my way to becoming a successful black woman all while loving and hurting in life’s long but needed lessons. I am content with knowing I will have to struggle and feel much pain on my way to becoming the person I am because I know that every lesson will be engraved in my head and it will only lead me to the place that I belong and need to be. I also know that God is not putting me through this hurricane for no reason. There is a bigger prize at the end and I don’t know what it is but I can wait for this surprise. This goes for everyone else that is reading this blog as well.

I want you all to go and chase your dreams. Run full force, don’t let anyone stop you, and never take no for an answer!

I am done talking now because I know I can ramble but thanks for reading again and I love you all!! Muahhh!!!!

I am a Savannah State University grad with a bachelors in Public Relations and Advertising with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I was born in New Orleans, LA, but raised in Washington, DC, where my family are natives. Since the age of 14, I am able to say that I have worked at over 12 different companies, which led me to knowing that I am good with working with people and in communications. I love writing (when I have the time) and run two businesses on top of a full-time career in public relations. When I have free time, you can find me plotting on my next business ventures, visiting different hole-in-the-wall restaurants, spending time with family and friends, or catching up on my favorite television shows that I rarely have time to watch.
