Happy April and cheers to spring! I realize I have been super MIA on my blog for over a month. Since my last post, I’ve had a couple major events occur in my life and to be honest I have not really been in the mood to blog. I celebrated my 27th birthday on March 19th, and I purchased my first home at the end of February. That is the big news I was referring to in my previous post! Now that I am finally beginning to get settled into my new home, I am ready to pick back up on blogging and creating new content for you all to enjoy.
I always thought that my first time being on my own and out of my mom’s house, I would be living with a roommate. I envisioned living in an apartment for a while, having to share certain household things with my roommate. Just the ordinary transition into adulthood and becoming independent. As I matured, I realized that this way of living may not be the direction in which my life was going. If I was asked to describe my personality, I would say that I am an extroverted loner. I enjoy mingling in large social settings, traveling and hanging out with my friends, but I also value my time to myself.
Your home should always be a place of solitude, where you feel the most comfortable and content. For these reasons, I decided that it would be best for me to live in my own home, by myself for the time being. Yes, this comes with a lot of responsibility, but I am willing and ready to take on a new challenge. At some point we all have to grow up, and be responsible. At times this causes us to face circumstances that might have once made up uncomfortable.
I must admit, that I am very proud of myself. Being a young, single black woman we are faced with so many adversities. In a world where most women my age are looking to find a man, and use him as a meal ticket, I’d rather not. I would rather be able to hold my own, and once God blesses me with the right man anything he can do for me will be a bonus. As women, we sometimes do not give ourselves enough credit on how strong and resilient we can be. No, this is not a rant against men, because I do believe two people bound together by God is more powerful than one. On the same hand, I also believe that it is very important to establish yourself as an individual before you commit to building with someone else. The beauty of life is that everyone is on a different journey. Whichever path you are on, I pray that it brings you much happiness now and in the long run. Have a safe and wonderful weekend, and please pray for me as I begin this new journey in my own life. Happy Easter!
