Wow guys, can you believe that the year is basically over? This year has been such a defining year for me. I forced myself out of so many comfort zones and really dug deep in a lot of situations! Having continual faith throughout your journey is tough — but it is those defining moments that make everything worthwhile. Keep reading for my top 2016 highlights that have really changed me for the better!
My 2016 Highlights
This month was nothing short of amazing. I launched my first ever magazine for HerStyle Media, planned a launch party for the issue and graduated with my masters! Can you say a-m-a-z-i-n-g? God is good!
June is my birthday month, but what I received was beyond my imagination. Let me tell you guys something, apartment searching is tough! There’s so much that goes into it. People think, “oh, I’m just going to go look at some places and that’s it”…NOT. You have to get approved, theres so much paperwork and money involved. Needless to say, on my birthday I found out that we got approved for our apartment AND I landed a full time job! Also, my fav. Draya wished me a happy birthday so you know I couldn’t help but to be on cloud 9.
The big move! I packed up my things to start my new life and career in NY. Lord knows it’s been such an exciting and scary journey, but I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months already. Time is flying!
I relaunched The Britney Diaries!
I put myself first. There are times in life where you get stuck in just going through the motions…where it be on the job or with someone you love. You have to know when to let go…completely! And although it may seem hard at first, it’s doable. Time and time again us ladies tend to put everything before our heart/mind. Remember what you deserve, and rid everything that doesn’t meet your standards.
Planning for the future all month has helped me to see how far I’ve come. I think it’s truly important to look back and reevaluate everything that has happened to you. Too many times we get stuck in talking about all of the things we haven’t done yet, when really we’ve done above and beyond.
I can’t wait to share with you all everything I have planned for next year! Now that I’m settled in my new city, it’s only up from here. I hope you guys join me for the ride!
