28: Reflections on Life and Love

Now is as good a time as any to update you all on what’s been happening over here. When I tell you February was crazy? SON. So much has been happening, and now I’m finally able to sit and catch my breath.

First off, I’ve just come off of an amazing week, celebrating 28 years around the sun in Miami with my best girlfriends. I’ve had time to really let shit sink in: I’m 28. Like holy shit.

What’s it mean? It could mean nothing and it could mean everything. For me it’s lowkey time for me to get my shit in order. It’s also time for me to really acknowledge where I’m at. I’m working on… taking things slow. Trusting the process, and having more confidence in my abilities. I think at times it’s easy to get comfortable. It’s easy to allow yourself to believe that things are fine how they are, and not continuously strive to challenge yourself.

I’m dealing with a lot of changes as of late. I’m in the process of exploring other full time employment, and that may mean relocating. This is both exciting and terrifying, as I’ve made quite the life for myself here. But I also know that continuous growth is really important. That may mean stepping outside of my comfort zone( again) in order to become the best version of myself. I’ve recently started dating again after being fairly stagnant in that department. It’s been very eye-opening. I’m getting more comfortable with my hang ups and not apologizing for them. I’m slowly allowing myself to be vulnerable for the first time in a long time. The thing about diving back in, is embracing the uncertainty that comes with getting to know someone new. You don’t know how far it’ll go, if it’ll go anywhere at all. The longer you’re single, the harder it is to muster up the energy to try again. The harder it becomes to have a positive outlook that there is still a chance to get it right. It’s hard, but not impossible. Right now, the uncertainty is good. I feel.. more relaxed in some ways.

I forgot to mention I started teaching! That is also super new for me, but really fun. It’s really dope when you realize that you love something and you had no idea. I’m really digging this new opportunity, and am excited to where it takes me.

I just wanna be better everyday.Not for anybody but myself. I owe that to myself, to take care of me, to love me, to be my biggest supporter. I owe it to myself to be the happiest, healthiest me. I believe in the process, I believe in love, I believe in nurturing a healthy mind and surrounding yourself with people who make you feel good always. This is what I have in my mind as I start another year around the sun. I plan to remind myself of this regularly, because it’s important.

Man. 28 is off to a wonderful start. I have high hopes for this year. I ho
pe for a lot of love, light, and great experiences for this coming year. I hope to continue to challenge myself to write meaningful shit, network, and continue to develop my brand. Ya’ll peep the new layout?Whatchu think? Stay tuned man, this is just the beginning. Rock with me!

Best,
always_mlove
