It’s okay to go MIA

Dear readers,

I don’t want anyone to think I’ve forgotten about the blog. Life began to get overwhelming and I really needed extra time to compose myself.

When life does get overwhelming, I tend to fall into depressive slumps that aren’t good for me. Let’s just say handling my emotions is not my strong point.

As the title says, it’s okay to go MIA. You need that time to recharge your batteries and regain focus. I have this belief that taking care of mental health is just as Important as taking care of your physical health.

I’m the next post, hopefully this week, I want to focus more on mental health.

I know this is a short post. I really want to focus back on the blog and recommit myself to a constant post schedule.

I thank the world for my readers

Chasing your dreams!

I just want to start off by saying that I plan to post a new blog once every week. I am learning to be more consistent and I figured why not start with the blog. Writing this blog has definitely given me a new sense of purpose.

I love the idea of chasing your dreams. It’s exciting but it also comes with a price. Personally, I am starting a path to become a millionaire. In my head, it sounds completely crazy and daring. I don’t consider myself to be the average person nor do I want to live the average lifestyle. It’s going to take a lot of hard work and dedication if I wanna make this happen.

Unfortunately, I have a horrible habit of laziness that can make this dream difficult to achieve. I am trying my absolute hardest to break this habit. I want my son to have better habits and a better understanding of life in general. Life can be difficult enough but how you overcome the obstacles is the important factor.

You also have to understand that everyone is not going to support you. This is the HARD lesson to learn. You have to learn to support and motivate yourself. Everyone is not going to be on your side and you need to be okay with that. If you want to be successful, haters come with the territory. A hater can be anybody, even those the closest to you. I’m tired of asking family and friends for help knowing they don’t want to help in the first place. It’s time for me to gain and maintain the lifestyle I want without the help from others.

I can no longer rely on help from others. My goals are not aligned with everyone else’s. I feel like I am set apart from the rest of the world and I have to start acting like it. I am confident in my abilities and I know I can accomplish my dreams!

Dear Readers, 

I appreciate you for taking time out of your busy schedule to read my posts. I am not writing my post for any sympathy but understanding.

Being a parent is rewarding but also challenging. There is new information I am learning regarding my finances. Growing up, I was not taught how to budget or the importance of credit. I do admit that I have made mistakes with my money and it is hard to dig yourself out of a hole. 

I am determined to get myself more financially stable very soon. I hate to make excuses for my situation because there really isn’t one. For a single parent, time is not always on your side. I come home from work exhausted every single day and I barely have energy to do anything important. 

I have to stop the cycle IMMEDIATELY.  I am determined to make a positive future for my son and I. I will not quit and neither should you!!

That’s all I wanted to say. Have a wonderful day and know that I believe in you!
