Do I Walk Away Or Go Harder?

Top Atlanta Blogger, Top Black Bloggers, Atlanta Style Blogger

For the last few months I've been feeling sorta defeated, no frustrated or maybe exhausted.  I guess to sum it all up, I've just been in my feelings.  This is not to say that all is falling apart, it's just that things aren't really happening how I'd envisioned.  Don't let these blog pics or my IG feed fool you ma'am / sir.  I'm a work in progress.

The month of October to some signifies the last quarter of the year.  This is the time to really give it all you got.  To end the year strong.  But for me, this month brings me to my 12th year (TWELVE YEARS!!!!) being at my job.  It's kinda unbelievable.  Honestly I didn't think I'd last more than 5 years.  The plan was to make my way back to nursing school, graduate and get a job as a travel nurse.  If the travel nurse thing didn't pan out, I'd work as a trauma nurse in Grady Hospital's trauma center.  Obviously neither plan worked out (insert sad face).

Here I am close (really close) to 40 and still trying to 'figure it out'.  At the 4 year mark on my job, I started to realize that school was getting further away.  Yet, I wasn't willing to settle for the hand that life was showing me.  So I reached out to my baby sister with a plan to start our own image consulting company.  She thought it was a great idea and jumped on board.  Three years later.... What company???

Now what was I suppose to do?!?!  Walk away and just be grateful that I have a descent job with okay benefits OR regroup and try something else.  Over the last few years, I've been regrouping.  I can't even tell you how many times I've regrouped.  It's frustrating!  It's overwhelming at times ( a lot of times) and other times I'm literally on the verge of quitting and running the opposite direction.   

But the thing is.... I can't just walk away.  Even though I've tried talking myself out of chasing my dreams and creating a life where I live what I love.  I CAN'T!  I have to much at stake.  I've invested so much already.  Yes it's hard, but I'm driven to go harder.  Complaining is easy, procrastinating is the breeding ground for fear of failure or the unknown.  Feeling bad for myself is ridicules.  I will gain nothing from any of this.  

While I'm not where I'd like to be.  I'm motivated in the notion that I will succeed.  One day I'll look around and see what has taken money, sweat and years.  And by the power of the tongue I declare to myself everyday that I'm going to 'blow up.'

At this point guys, it's go hard or go harder!

Happy Monday Errbody!  And what a Monday it is.  Guys I'll be doing something later today that at one time in life I would have never thought possible.  Although I'm not a superstitious person, I kinda don't want to say anything until it's all said and done. But I'll def tell you later...

Wow it's October all ready and the weather here in Atlanta has gotten cooler.  It's like it was 102° last week and now it's 72° this week.  But I'm not complaining.  Over the last few months, I've been working on my fall wardrobe and I've added some really awesome pieces that I just CAN NOT wait to wear.  Like this jumpsuit from JustFab; although I'm really not into one-piece wear, it was the color that did it for me.  I'm already thinking about how to refashion this jumpsuit again.  Maybe a fancy blazer and some booties will do.  What do you think?  How would you style this?  For style inspi follow my style journey on IG - @thestyleklazit

Every now and again, I try to tap into my girly side.  I think this look sums it up.  From my hair down to my shoes.  I'll say it, even if you don't - I look amazing!  It''s hard to believe that there was a time I would never compliment myself.  You look at me now and might ask, why?  Welllll, since you ask....

One word: Comparison!  I was always comparing my "flaws" against other female "perfections."  Either my booty wasn't big enough or my hair wasn't long enough or my smile was as pretty.  But what I failed to realize was that "Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy."  Although I may not have the flattest stomach or the smoothest skin; I've finally reached a point where I'm in love with myself.  Flaws and all.

Your mind can be your worst enemy.  Stop letting it lie to you!
