Welcome to my Blog! Do you know how many times I’ve said I am going to start a blog? And I never do. Well, this time is different. It’s 2019 and I have NO FEAR going into this new year. I’m making a courageous effort to follow through on the tasks I’m most passionate about accomplishing.
But 1st a little about me, (just in case you missed the bio ;) I’m an author, food enthusiast, and an all around dope chick for about 20 plus years now. I enjoy connecting with people through literature and helping communities through fellowship and fun. Beyond that, I’m a sister, an auntie, and a friend to some amazing folks across the globe. I am very blessed to have encouraging family & friends that have pushed me to pursue my dreams! And likewise, it has always been my dream to inspire and connect with people around the world to give them that extra push of encouragement when they need it as well.
In this blog I am going to talk about various topics and I may get off topic, but ultimately, I am always going to bring my message back to purposeful living. It’s February 2018 and I am finally sticking to my commitment to kick off my blog. It’s crazy to think that I've written hundreds of poems and short stories within minutes yet it’s taken everything in me, for me to sit down and pen this!? Hahahahaa I know, bear with me. As I continue my blog I’m going to share my journey of life in hopes that it motivates you not to follow my footsteps, but to create your own... So, here I go!
What are your personal and professional goals for 2019? And how are you going to accomplish them?
-For me, my personal goal is to be 100% confident and comfortable in my own skin. For years I've been insecure about my hair, my weight, even my fingernails! I firmly believed I was prettiest when I had a extensions or braids flowing down my back but now I'm learning to love my natural hair and its beautiful kinky God-given curl pattern. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a proud weave/wig-wearer but now I know my hair doesn't define my beauty. Summer is my favorite time of the year second to Christmastime. The only thing that I hate about Summer is having to look at myself in a swimsuit, but this year rather than complaining about how flat I wish my stomach was, I'm hitting the gym with NO FEAR and promising myself to eat cleaner and healthier foods. Now to the nails, what a loaded topic! There are square nails, oval nails, coffin nails, stiletto nails, almond nails and then there are my nails... Category is...short & stubby realness! But again this is 2019 and with NO FEAR I'm rocking a clean polished gel manicure on my short and stubby nails and killing it! Yes killing it!
-Now my professional goal is to ultimately grow Designerkiki Inc. and Princess Kiki Productions into a successful multi-billion dollar company, and not just any company- but a company I would be proud to work for. I have so much in store and I can't wait for you all to see it! I'm not going to go too much in detail because like the American Grammy-Award winning multi platinum singer Kelly Rowland so eloquently said " All my business keep it private, you know bosses move in silence".
So, if I can encourage you in any way, I'd say get started and don't make excuses about the goals you are most passionate about, then do these 5 things:
1. Write your Goal Down
2. Then write why this goal is meaningful to you
3. Next break down the steps it’ll take to accomplish It
4. Then write down the actual date you think you can accomplish it
5. Lastly, put this paper, a poster or your phone- just somewhere you can see it daily
Now, back to you. What will you have NO FEAR doing in 2019? Let me know in the comments :)
