Hey my loves!!! Long time no hear from. Honestly it’s my fault. I’ve been trying to get other things off the ground and I am totally excited. The first thing…I actually finished my book. That’s right, a whole entire book. Actually I’m going to get started on my second book and that makes me even more excited. Second thing make sure you are following my Instagram and Facebook account for the launch of the the MERCH website (lol). Yes, there are things that advertise the blog and podcast BUT there will also be #lessonslearned collection and and affirm yourself collection. So go like, follow, share, buy and take selfies, I promise I will repost you looking amazing in my stuff .
So if you haven’t noticed I started a podcast in January based on the blog. You can click here to catch up on episodes. But yeah that really happened and it happens biweekly on Wednesday nights. The episodes can be found on major listening platforms as well as YouTube for the live replay. Honestly I still don’t feel like I am totally in my groove but I’m extremely happy that I started.
Why did I start a podcast?
Ummm…..because I felt like I needed to step out from behind the keyboard and let my extra country voice be heard. I wanted to actually be the face of what I type because well I look like the majority of my audience. Being a semi-young, educated, middle class, AFRICAN AMERICAN women, who takes pride in wearing graphic t-shirts and glasses that are not needed. I am very expressive with my body when I talk and a cuss word may slip out if I’m not really being really careful about what I am saying (yes….judge ya mama, oh and this is a shirt, go buy it lol).
I love creating and I love sharing what I create. Even though before each episode I am extremely nervous, probably have a migraine and my eye is twitching, I absolutely live for the thrill of discussing how to build a better relationship with yourself and hearing my guests chime in. I try to keep things unmessy (is that even a word) but you know things happen and well you gotta talk about them.
It feels great to create. Some times being in your field it’s hard to veer into an uncharted area. As a teacher I don’t have much freedom to create because everything is geared toward your students and how they learn. In this realm I am free to do just about whatever I want. So to all my return readers/subscribers thank you for sticking with me. To my new readers just know I will always tell my truth no matter how hard it is for me to write or speak it.
