I think I had another fashion post scheduled for today but pushed it back to a later date. I know I wanted to post something today but didn’t want to feel like I was forcing it. I kept thinking and thinking and just wanted to let this post flow as I started typing.
I just have to say I am still feeling good after yesterday. Women are starting to really take up space and it just feels good being a woman, especially a black woman. We are in board rooms, running businesses, in government, Vice President of the United States!! Like what a time to be alive right now! I am loving it! Also I need to mention how Michelle Obama just came through and slayed! I know the day was supposed to be about our new administration but Michelle stole the show and I am not mad at her for it! Her hair, the outfit, how she walked in..just everything was flawless!
I am also trying to find the joy in social media again. Its just doesn’t seem as fun as it used to and I know it is a way to connect with others promote your business/content and just for fun but it just doesn’t seem as fun anymore. It seems like the new thing is ClubHouse and of course I don’t have an iPhone so I can’t really join in. It really seems like a great platform to network with others and gain some informative knowledge.
I am still learning not to get in my feelings about the numbers, followers and analytics but it can be hard at times. I started taking breaks from social media once a week and it has been pretty refreshing. I’m not scrolling for hours or driving myself crazy. I just feel myself slowly starting to drift myself away from it but I’m hoping to find the joy in it again. I also want to find other ways of reaching and connecting with others outside of social media.
I started journaling last week and I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this before. It just feels so good to sit down and get all of my thoughts, frustrations, gripes and clouded thoughts out of my head. I was previously using Tumblr but it just didn’t feel personal and something I could just keep for myself ( I deleted my account from there recently). My thoughts are private, I can just write however I feel without worrying about judgement or anything. It just feels amazing and if you are not currently doing so, I highly suggest you start journaling.
I think I am going to end here but hopefully you guys are doing okay out there and I will see you tomorrow for YouTube Friday’s!!
