"There are years that ask questions, and there are years that answer." -Zora Neale Hurston2013 was my year of answer.
In joyous expectation, I prayed for the graces, patience and stamina it would take to see through the dreams and goals God had deposited in my mind and on my heart. While in the past I had abstained, this year I devoured. I followed my most intense obsessions mercilessly.
I tried my best to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, to be confident amidst uncertainty. I vowed not to shrink back just because something wasn't easy. I pushed back; I made more room between I can't and I can.
When things became tough, I stopped looking for someone to blame and started looking for something to DO.
I flirted with life and travelled all around the United States. I breathed in deep the air of new places; San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, New York City, Las Vegas, Newport Beach, Houston, Albuquerque, Omaha, Santa Monica, Connecticut, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Reno & Mexico.
I focused on how my life felt; not just on how it looks online.
I desired for my heart and my passions to be the most beautiful things about me.
I am happy with the woman I have become this year, I have worked hard everyday to be her.
