I am successful and this is not a #humblebrag 🤷🏾♀️
I graduated from college, pledged a sorority, got an amazing job, married my college sweetheart, bought a house and had a handsome little boy. Hear me out before you start rolling your eyes 🙄🙄🙄
You see, I spent a lifetime acquiring things and checking boxes that describe “success.” Do you know what happens when you finish checking those boxes?! NOTHING… some part of you feels accomplished from completing life’s proverbial to do list. I’ve lived life busily, never taking time to enjoy the fruits of my labor or breathe in the time of stress. Something bad happened? Put your head down, work hard and you’ll come out on top. That was my philosophy. I never gave myself a moment to just live – live simply and slowly and fully. There are boxes that I never spent time checking off – my health, my personal hobbies (e.g. writing), dancing in the rain, singing at the top of my lungs, having coffee dates with my Mama, or enjoying fresh produce at the peak of the season!
I’m now enjoying these things and making changes to check off my happiness boxes.
