I know we are 19 days into the New Year but I feel compelled to let my readers know about my excitement/plans for the upcoming year. I’ve never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions; instead, I will have a theme: Perseverance.
Perseverance is defined as a steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. In other words, continuing to pursue your goals even when life is kicking you in the face. I will be the first to say that being an adult is nowhere near as fun as I thought it would be. I would give my right arm to go back to college being an RA and my sole responsibility being to get to my 8:00 class on time. However, until time travel is invented I’m stuck being a bill-paying, traffic fighting, student loan loathing adult.
But being an adult is not all bad. Being able to choose your path in life and how you get there is exciting. While on that path life is going to throw you curve balls, so perseverance is a necessity. A necessity I’m going to need on my major venture in 2015.
Some weeks ago, I told you all that I was taking a break from blogging to work on another business venture. I’m finally ready to let you all in on the news. Starting late January, early February I will be bringing you my beauty product line. It will offer body butters and body scrubs. I have the most sensitive skin this side of the Mason-Dixie line. As a teenager, I was close friends with acne and eczema so I had to be careful with the products that I used. Thanks to the powers of Pinterest, I discovered coconut oil and all its many uses. After dibble and dabbling with some recipes, I have come up with products that you and your skin will enjoy. Stay tuned for more details.
And you better believe that I will get back to blogging. I know that I have missed out on a lot of juicy pop culture events but I look forward to getting back to basics to the craziness that makes up our pop culture. I will admit that it will be challenging considering that I work full time and starting a side business plus other responsibilities but hey, that’s what perseverance is for
I didn’t get a chance to say this in 2014 but I want to thank all my readers from the bottom of my heart that read each post, share it, or retweet it. It means a lot that you all tune it to each post and see what I have to say about the latest antics in our world. I will continue to give you my best.
