I have noticed that many people have a word for 2021 and I had to think about my word long and hard. And it finally came to me, my word is myself. I’m going to be kinder to myself. I’m going to love me, support me, and encourage me. I have always gone hard for everyone else but myself. I have done so much for others and never for myself. Why have I neglected myself for others? Why have I done so much for others who have done less for me. This year of 2021 I’m going to make a better me. So my word for 2021 again is myself.
I hope everyone has a Happy New Year. I pray that this year will be better in so many ways.
As the year is coming to an end I would love to thank everyone who takes time out of their busy day to read my blog. It means the world to me. You all are the real MVP’s. I don’t know what you are going through and I don’t know how your feeling. But know this, I care about you all and I pray that next year all your dreams, passions, and anything else you may have been praying for getting answered. I pray that 2021 brings more love, success, and able to get out and see the ones you love. I know that this year has been a true struggle for us all. But just know your blogs and comments have meant the world to me. Never give up on your dreams, if you want to go back to school do it. If you want to get out of debt do it. Whatever you want to do, do it. Never stop dreaming. Never stop loving.
I read this awesome blog post and I wish that I could remember the lady’s name of the blog that I read. She truly made my day because I love books and I have always wanted to subscribe to a book box subscription. But there are so many out there and you don’t know which ones are truly worth it. So she had a whole blog post about the book box subscriptions that she tried out. And I was so happy because she saved me the work and the money. So out of all the ones that she blogged about I narrowed it down to the two that spoke to me the most. So the first one that came is from BlackLit and the email is Iamblacklit.com. No, I’m not getting paid to promote or talk about this book subscription. This book box was great. I’m a book lover and this made me so happy. If you are currently subscribed to a book box or you use to. What is your favorite?
And these are the items that were in my box.
In 2021 I want to focus more on myself. I have taken care of everyone but myself. My children are grown and my husband well he can fend for himself. I have neglected so much that I need to love myself and find out what I like and who I truly am and if there is more to me. I want to truly love myself for awhile. I have lost myself over the years in other people and just making sure everyone was okay. Time to get back to me and find out what I need. Self-love, self-focus time here I come.
The other thing that I want to change is my eating and exercise habits need to change. Yes, I’m a little in size but I need better eating habits. I walk and do some workouts but I want it to be daily and have some type of routine. I want to lead a better lifestyle. Less stress and worry. Do you struggle with eating right and exercise?
Whoa what. This book had me on my toes. It’s so many twists and turns. Okay so this book is about two twin sisters whose mom passed away. And so the other twin goes to live with her dad. And she starts taking over the other twin life. It’s crazy Im telling you. It’s a very good read. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I want somethings to change in 2021. The first being how I dress. I’m sweats and tee-shirt and tennis shoe type of girl. I dress up for work but that’s different. I’ve never felt confident in anything that I wear. Okay, let me take that back. My sweats and tee-shirts give me comfort and I have a few items that I feel and look amazing in. But I have never stopped to find my style. It’s always been about what other people wanted to see me in. I’m a very laid back person and I go along with the flow, but it’s time to get to know me and my fashion style. Am I the only one who struggles with their style?
How many books can I read next year?
Whoa, where did the time go. Today my daughter turns 19. This year has been very difficult. You graduated from high school and now you’re in college. You have always been a determined and focused young lady. I hope you know how much you are loved and how much joy you bring. Never forget that no matter what life brings I will always be here. Never give up on your dreams because they do come true. We have gone through some trying times this year and I know that you will be okay. I love you, baby girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY
