Beauties! Long time, no post, but promise you’ll still love me ok? Happy June! We’re almost halfway through the year and that is just insane to me. I know I always say time flies, and I probably always will because SHEESH. I feel like I’m blinking and literally months are just floating away. But here we are, June and entering into the best season of all…my birth season of course.
June is always a month of reflection for me. Not only is this the halfway mark of the year, it’s the month before my birthday. So in June I’m in like full out reflection and analyzation mode. This year I set some pretty big goals for myself and I’ll dig in more on those later in the month as I figure out (and analyze) where I am, what I’ve done right, and what I need to do more. But let’s recap May.
I’ll be completely honest with you all, I feel like last month was hazy for me. April, I hit the ground running and I had a TON of things going on, from signing new clients, letting some go, taking on more responsibilities at the day job, and working on the site relaunch. By the time May rolled around I needed a moment. But the thing about me is, in the midst of my hectic daily life I need a moment to regroup, but taking said moments tend to get me even more overwhelmed because I feel like I should be doing something. The mom, wife, part time side hustle, and full time employee balance is INSANE. Craziness. Full out insanity and most days I’m still just trying to figure it all out.
But I do have one major thing to report, that I think is pretty dope. I spoke on my first panel as a blogger for International Hair Meetup Day and it. was. awesome. As a blogger working her way up in this sea full of talented women, with dope blogs, pretty pictures, and all the connections I don’t have…I’m always at events, listening to panelists, taking notes and dreaming of the day it’ll be me on that stage. And this month, that vision came to life. That one event alone was enough to make my whole month!
In May, I started to shift my focus on what I really want for this blog. That time to just think, think, and think some more led me to ultimately realizing that GREAT things take time and as I’ve told myself (and tweeted) on multiple occasions, I just have to Keep Going. So while May seemed like it was a month of reflection it was more like a “moment” to just stop, breathe, and let myself know it’s okay not to have all the answers, or to have it all figured out, or to have things perfect the way I would like them to be. As long as I Keep Going.
So June! Let’s go! What are you looking forward to this month?
Stay blessed beautiful!
