Proverbs 3:5

My life has been hectic, stressful, dramatic, and confusing since I moved to New York.

On top of getting comfortable in the busiest city in the galaxy, I’ve quit a job that was sucking the life out of me, started a new position (because bills), got a new man, had a life altering fight with my best friend that I still secretly cry about, and recently dealt with Hurricane Harvey. Yeah, life has really been AH-LOT as of late.

Yet, in a Proverbs 3:5 way, this season is the happiest I’ve been in a long time. I love the space that I’m in right now. My skin is clearing up. I’m on track to getting back to a healthy lifestyle. I’ve found a black woman therapist that I can talk to about my relationship with God and what stage of Rihanna best imitates the life I’m trying to live at the moment. SZA blessed me with this CTRL album and I just got tickets to the Solange concert at Radio City Hall. God is good.

I’ve just been extremely busy.

But, after a bit of re-evaluating why I started this journey in the first place, probes from my best friends on where #ODStorytime has been, and a few billion prayers later; I’m #backtoblogging.

So, cheers to: being settled in my new life, messing up a billion times and getting up a billion and one, being beautifully dramatic, and finding the strength to love and cherish myself through it all.
