Hey guys, it is me…the girl behind Naturalle Drea that has been hiding behind these other posts lol! It has been a while since I updated you guys on life and just everything.
2019 has started out pretty interesting for me. I set some goals I wanted to accomplish during the year and realized a couple months in that they were not realistic for me. I’m not sure what state of mind I was in but I am glad I changed direction.
I have really been struggling with my time management and breaking some bad habits. As you know, I am notorious for waking up late and scrambling around like a crazy person. It doesn’t help when you have a seven year old who sometimes gives me a hard time in the morning and never knows where his shoes are ironically lol. It is not a good way to start the day. I read online somewhere that it takes 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to create a lifestyle. I wonder how true that is so I am attempting to create a habit of having a morning routine. I know it is going to be a little hard at first but if I keep going, I know it will work out for the best.
I was excited when I was chosen to become one of the Winter/Spring ambassador for Bask And Bloom. You have seen some reviews and tutorials on their products (which are amazing by the way lol). I took a chance when they posted about looking for ambassadors and honestly thought that I wouldn’t be chosen. I know I shouldn’t doubt myself like that but I know that the work I have been doing has paid off. I am just so grateful for the opportunity and hope this opens more doors for me. I just love creating content, especially hair videos.
I am also working on being fearless and stepping out on faith. I have a tendency to be in my own way and self sabotage. I was tired of holding myself back from opportunities and just being scared to do things. I had the thought of of creating a newsletter for a long time but was scared that no one would subscribe or read it. I keep reading and hearing about being in contact with your audience outside of social media. I had conformation after that day Instagram and Facebook went down. What if social media disappeared? I am launching my newsletter next month and so happy that I have people who subscribed! I am nervous about keep their attention and putting out good content.
Life has thrown its usual ups and downs but I am rolling with it. Everyday is not perfect but I can only learn from the lessons I am given. I am working on not being so overwhelmed and not taking on so much. I do feel myself creeping back into that sometimes but I take a step back and regroup. It is so easy to start thinking about so many things and get overwhelmed and then…stress. I am still a work in progress and happy about the direction I am going in.
How is everything going for you guys? How has 2019 been treating you? See you guys tomorrow!
