Happy New Year!
I find it a little surreal that a decade has ended, and I was there for all of it. I lived through things that have made history (and not for the best of reasons) I have watched the rise of social media, content creators and everything in between. I saw Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc.. all start and take off, I’ve experienced it all. I watched people create business with these platforms and gain success. Who would have thought sitting in a bedroom talking to yourself, would turn into the ability to reach millions. Taking a photo and inspiring others to do the same, but I’ve also seen the toll that social media can take on the mental health of others.
I don’t make New Year resolutions anymore, I stopped a few years ago and realized that if I wanted something to be different I just had to make it happen. I haven’t always been the most confident person and I’m sure a few of you have felt the same, but if you want something to change you have to just try, the hard work will pay off just keep at it. My 2020 plans are just that, work hard to encourage and develop my blog, create and post consistently on Youtube & IG and grow the community that I watched start.
I have always wanted to work for myself, knowing that there will be a lot of hours, sacrifice and sometimes wanting to pull my hair out, but the end result of building something of my own is the best feeling; also creating my own legacy is pretty awesome too. My main focus of 2020 will be to stop putting so much pressure on myself and just do what I love, take it day by day and try. I’m hoping that many of you have the same mindset and want to make the most of what the new year has to offer. Take it in stride.
