Have you ever just fallen so off track that you kinda forget who you are and what your purpose is? Well, that happened to me in 2017 and I'm determined to turn things around this year!
From January until about November, I was super focused. My tunnel vision was on 1000% and all I did was work. I was still stuck in that "yeaaaa, I just graduated!!" phase and all I focused on from January to March was finding a job and supporting my side hustles [ThickGirlThrifts & Mary Kay]. Life was pretty good, actually.
I landed my first corporate job in March which was exciting! During that time, I was working from 9am to 6pm M-F and somehow found time to work on my hustles. I learned that the corporate life and this job weren't for me, so my run there didn't last too long. After 6 months, my temporary contract ended and I decided to attempt doing my own thing with entrepreneurship.
During this period of doing my own thing, I was broke but I was happy doing what I love! Then, I met some new people in the city and finally had the chance to have a social life. I think this is where things got a little messy. I truly was having too much fun! I never thought that could happen, but it did.
Soon, I ended up neglecting my hustles and I spent too much time focusing on having a good time doing things I honestly had no business doing. I strayed away spiritually and neglected my relationship with God for a while. To be real, I was just too ashamed to talk to God at the moment even though I knew he'd always be there. I gave my business the minimal amount of attention which brought me $0.
How in the world had I allowed myself to become so unfocused?? When the new year hit, I had to acknowledge what was going on and choose to make a change. I got fed up and I decided that it was time to get refocused. Now, I'm on a journey to regain my focus - I'm going to use this blog as an avenue to share how I find my way back.
I'm going to call this phase of my life "REFOCUSING."
I am determined to rededicate myself to growing my relationship with God, refocusing on my businesses and becoming a better me. I hope that documenting my process will inspire someone who may be going through the same or similar predicament.
