Colors of Winter
Over the years I have realized that Winter brings some of the saddest times. Not intentionally of course, because everything is supposed to be jolly. But I find that the people around me are under a lot more stress; there are a lot of expectations and worry surrounding the holidays. Gift giving is just stressful and to be completely honest, times are hard. Stuff is expensive, and we all want to be living to the fullest, obviously. So I decided to set my sights on goals that I could actually attain. As you know I have been working from home. Doing odd writing jobs and making money running the blog and working with brands. I realized that though it was keeping me alive, a job would definitely be a help. So around thanksgiving I started applying like a fool to as many jobs as I can that fit my ideal description. I wanted to style, I wanted to have fashion back in my life everyday.
This year I set a goal for myself, I wanted two new jobs, so I made it happen. I am going into 2017 with two jobs that directly represent me as a person. I am currently coaching basketball at a private school for one which is was a godsend, and I am also a stylist now at the prudential. Fashion and basketball all at the same time. What more can a girl ask for?
In the new year I am hoping to spend more time with my family and to save and establish myself as an adult. I want to accelerate my blogging career and teach myself how to sew. I have so many ideas, I just need to organize them all. I may be getting ahead of myself as it is only a few days until Christmas, but I am ready. Speaking of Christmas, I don't want for anything but warmth and and a pair of pink fluffy Puma Fenti slides (someone tell my man because I am afraid he may be lost).
But instead of thinking about all of the things you don't have this holiday, think about how you can change that. Think about how to put yourself in a position to do what you love. Even if you feel like you won't get that job, fix up your resume and try. You just might get it. And instead of thinking about receiving this holiday think about how you can give.
