WON’T HE DO IT!
I’ve learned a lot over the past 2 years, especially how to get over my fear and anxiety and JUST DO IT! I’m guilty of writing a post and letting it sit for days which turns to months smh; I do this all in the name of “letting it marinate” that way I can edit, edit, and edit to “perfection.” My sisters (my #1 supporters!) and therapist called me out on it plenty of times!!! I promise I’m much better at it! I still let it marinate, but only for a shorter period of time lol I’ve also become more vulnerable in my posts by sharing a lot more about myself and some of the struggles I’ve faced (check out the Anchor of Me section). Lastly, I’ve become bolder in sharing the Word of God. It is my mission to “Spread Hope One Word at a Time!” and I aim to do just that!
The learning does not stop here, family! I’ve been learning a lot about the world of blogging in order to serve you better via posts and merchandises. Thank you all for your patience! I still don’t have a clue what I’m doing, but when God is in it, there is no limit!! I’m excited for what is in store for us this year.
To start us of with celebrations, please join me as I publish COMPARTMENTS II! This piece takes us to a different level of vulnerability. Get ready!!!!
