Good Riddance 2016
For me 2016 was a hectic year, it was a year of revelation. It was a year when a lot of hidden things in my life were brought to the fore front. Things in my marriage, finances, business dealings, and my overall life journey.
In entering 2017, I'm not going to lie. I felt very indifferent, lost, and drained. I felt like I didn’t want to do much! I felt unsure, unorganized, confused yet refreshed. I think I felt all of these emotions because 2016 was such a hard year for me and also because I learned a lot about myself and others during my trip to Miami. The trip gave me a lot of time to think about things and redirect my focus.
New Beginnings in 2017...
For me 2017 seems to be a year of restoration and new beginnings. For me 2017 is a quest to find myself and live my truth. Lately, I find more peace and happiness in being alone. Being alone allows me to truly listen to my inner thoughts, really analyze my life, my focus and those around me.
In 2017, I only want to be fabulous and carefree!
There are many life changes that I am facing in 2017. I just got a new place, I'm more financially independent, there have been some changes in a few of my relationships and goals; but it's all for the best. I'm entering this new year free and receptive to what life has for me.
Many of you who have followed me for a while know that I had on online boutique called Style Era Boutique. As my life has changed, and as I began to evaluate my life. I've come to terms with eliminating things that no longer serve the passion within me. I created Style Era Boutique because I love helping woman look their best and I wanted to build a clothing storefront for woman that would provide style at a reasonable price. It had a good run, but as I've grown, the brand no longer fits who I am. They always say that your first business is your practice run because you have made mistakes and you're wiser because of those mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes with Style Era, but mistakes help you grown and I'm grateful. I still plan to reopen a new storefront in the future. For now I'm content on just focusing on my blog and learning more about myself. I'm always big on representing myself in all stages of my growth process.
In 2017, I'm leaving a lot of things behind and creating new goals for a more positive and sustainable future. I believe 2017 will be a year to gain back all that was lost in 2016, I sincerely believe this. I'm looking forward to what 2017 has planned for my life and I'm going in with an open mind.
Whats On The Forecast For 2017?
My goals for 2017:
-Learn twi (my native language from Ghana West Africa)
-Push myself towards taking my blog to new heights and forming beneficial partnerships
-Always remaining true to myself no matter what anyone else is doing or saying
–Working towards creating another successful event
-Just continuing to do what I love; which is sharing my short comings and sharing what I’m passionate about in hopes that I am helping others along the way.
I’m sharing my short comings and my goals with you all, because I see my readers as extended family. I will be sharing a lot more with you all in future posts. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and I wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2017.
