Embracing Who I am

I haven’t shared this with anyone yet, but 2014 has been a year of extreme growth for me. And with June alive and well, I’ve really been trying to take as much time as I can for self-reflection. Right now I’m taking my time to really figure out what God wants for me – personally and professionally. I’ve had a significant change of perspective this year, changing from a fast-paced lifestyle to a more family and spiritually centered lifestyle. I’ve also had to think about making some tough decisions about my business model, my career, and where I want to go from here. All of these things are intertwined more than ever. I have high hopes for how this will impact every aspect of my life.

Being happy with who I am and being grateful for all of God’s blessings has been the first step toward this transformation. And no, it wasn’t easy and I struggle with giving Him my trust daily. It took time to learn to be content with what I have and who I am. And it is only through God’s grace that I am able to have the strength to come to this conclusion.

But here I am. Me. Whenever you see me, I’m in casual clothes 98% of the time. Casual as in yoga pants and a tank top with flip flops to finish off the look. I usually don’t have any make up on and my hair is tied up and not fixed. You’ll be lucky if it’s even brushed lol. I like pop culture and pop music (Mostly pop and R&B. But I’m also into some hip hop, some classic rock, and a lot of oldies. I’m more of an easy listening type of gal. And lyrics trumps the beat 75% of the time for me.) I LOVE sushi (and yes “love” had to be bold, italicized, and capitalized!). I would eat sushi every day if I could. I’m not as artsy as I would like to be. I can’t draw at all. But I have a fangirl appreciation for it. I love watching TV. I get scary addicted to shows. I enjoy a good talk over lunch or drinks with friends more than watching a movie. I think, live, and breathe business – all the time, nonstop.

I’ve always tried to be like other people. I always thought the real me wasn’t that great. And though I might not be anything special, I’m okay with that now. 🙂
