So much has changed in my life since the last time I posted on Hay Queen! But I think it's healthy to take a break from things to put your life in perspective. And that's what I had to do. I had to step back, reevaluate, and better my life, and ultimately Hay Queen! Here are a few updates in personal life:
1. I found love.
It came swiftly, and surprisingly. But that's usually how the best things in life come to us. I've gained a new friend, confidant and supporter. He's such a positive addition to my life, and I look forward to our next adventures. *blushes*
2. I quit my job.
It was a prolonged decision, and something that I don't regret at all. I realized that my job was a blessing, but it had ran it's course. After prayer and meditation, I realized that it's time for me to pursue writing full time now! And it's the scariest, yet exhilarating thing I've done. Many, don't understand why I would leave a full time job, to pursue freelance writing and blogging (as well as other avenues of writing), and I'm okay with that. Because I've learned that you don't have to understand my vision to see my dream.
3. I'm writing a book!
I'm completing my first book of poetry! Poetry has always been a part of my life, and journey as a growing writer. I'm excited to publish my first book of my work. I can't release too many details yet, but it is a beautiful collection of poems reflecting on hurt, acceptance, healing and other reflections. I can't wait to share it with you all within the next few months. I'll definitely be posting blurbs about the publishing, editing process; as well as, release dates for the title, and entire book.
4. More collaborations to come...
Over the course of these last three months, I have been able to meet some extraordinary young women! More hair queens to interview, and more bloggers to write guest posts as well. I'm so excited for the partnerships Hay Queen! has in store!
5. I got my nose pierced!
Which may not be as life changing as the previous changes in my life, but I have been wanting this for a long time! I'm finally taking more chances as it comes to my appearance, and I am happy about it!
Furthermore, I will be posting more personal reflections on the blog. I want you all to know who I am, and I want to get to know you all as well! I look forward to more reader-writer-interaction!
Those are a few updates on my personal life. Stay tuned for more!
What's new in your life?
