Hello, my lovelies! I hope you all are doing well and slaying yet another week. Today is the last day of January and it feels like I’ve had an entire year already. In only 31 days, I’ve celebrated my birthday, had my car break down, gotten closer to my goals, and changed directions in my career. I want to say I’ve been through a storm, but instead, I just feel like God is finally giving me what I’ve been praying for.
I’ve been creating so much this week and now that I have the time to actually do it, I have been going to sleep feeling accomplished that I’m exhausted after doing the things I love all day. It’s always been so baffling to me how we devote 40 hours a week to a corporation we usually dread going to and only devote maybe 10 hours to the things we really want in life. Taking this time off has actually shown me just how little effort I give to the planning, cultivating and creation of my blog due to being “tired” from work and school. In my time off and even after, I know I have to step it up to ensure that this life of waking up and creating every day is my reality.
Like the paintings at the Columbus Metropolitan Library Museum, your journey is a work of art. Whether this month snatched you by the edges or everything is right on track, you are exactly where you need to be right now. This thought can be very foreign to us control freaks, but I promise you guys, we will all be just fine. For the first time in a long time, I don’t really know what’s next and I am truly letting go and letting God. I know that He completely has me and I am stepping into everything I’ve been praying, crying, and hoping for. I can’t wait to see the art that comes out of this darkness and as always, I’m so happy you guys are on this road with me.
