Happy New Year, beautiful people! I wish for you a heart full of happiness and mind set on relentlessly chasing those dreams.

Am I the only one still completely reeling from how fast 2017 flew by? I mean, what in the entire heck?! It’s actually quite embarrassing seeing that the last post on here was back in..GULP!..February, 2017! Say what?!!!!

Well, let that serve as a lesson to me and to you that there is no time like the present. Time waits for woman so all those things that you’ve been putting on hold…stop putting them on hold and start pursuing NOW!

Which brings me to…. where have I been?

I’ve been RIGHT HERE.

After starting 2017 on high with landing an article in a national publication (which you can read here), getting my first piece published in print, being offered a travel collaboration and landing a great, new job, what was supposed to be my year of greatness turned into a year of...quiet observation and routine. To be brutally honest, I procrastinated. I kept putting off my next`post/project until tomorrow. And each tomorrow turned into a new tomorrow. And the weeks turned into months and, well...a whole year went by. 

Which brings us to NOW. 

A brand new year with the promise of new beginnings and new opportunities.   Listen, I won't make any big, bold promises about what I'm going to do. I'm just going to do it. A 'quiet' year doesn't necessarily mean a wasted one. I've certainly grown over the past year by  leaps and bounds. I'm more self-assured, more certain of what I want and so much more committed to pursuing my goals and by extension, this blog.

So, with that said, let's make 2018 a year of NO. MORE. EXCUSES. Just do it.
