Since I last posted on my blog and to be quite honest, it was a refreshing 6 months (did you get the reference?). So much has happened in my life that I had to pause my blog for an undetermined amount of time so I can focus on what was going on with me. Since I last spoke to you all, I’ve quit my job of 8 years, I recently got a promotion within the non-profit organization I work with, and I’ve fallen even more in love with myself. It was a tough first 6 months, with my last job being the catalyst of the new Miriam. I haven’t changed on the outside (I’m still a fat bitch and a glorious one at that), but I have changed the way I look at life and the universe. I have been more in tune with my surroundings and the people that have become a permanent staple in my every day life. I have let love pass me by because let’s be honest here, I love myself too much to let a guy come between me, myself, and I (cue Beyoncé). Lately, I’ve been staying busy and making sure that I am still doing what I love. I’ve made some decisions that have definitely been super beneficial for me in a lot of ways. Although I still need time to grow, I know that even at 25, not all my shit is together and THAT IS OKAY. I had a plan for myself that has taken longer than anticipated to fulfill, but I know it’s only a matter of time before I get there and I finally feel like I’m doing what I was supposed to be doing.
With that being said, I am so excited to be able to give my blog, my readers, and my followers more of my attention. It’s not the same as posting on Instagram and Twitter. I feel a real connection when I’m writing to you all. It’s one of my life’s small pleasures being able to connect with everyone, wherever they are on this earth. It’s satisfying to know that there are people out there that actually take the time to read through every blog post, every caption, every IG story, and every word I’ve said in the last few months.
I’ve made a deal with myself that I will take on whatever life has in store for me. I won’t get upset over small things, let stupidity get the best of me, and overall continue to pursue my dreams wherever they decide to take me. Blogging has been a passion of mine since I was 19 and now that I’m almost 26 years old, I’ve decided to make it more than just a once in a while thing. Time has not been on my side the last 8 years (since I had been employed at my former office job) and now, it’s here. The time has come and I’m excited/nervous/scared/happy that everything is somewhat falling into place. It’s only the beginning and now that I am in my mid-20’s (WOAH!), I know that everyone’s journey is different and I’m now okay with that.
I can’t wait to see what is in store for me and for everyone in my life.
