It's Been a While!

Friday, August 16, 2013

I haven't blogged in about almost 3 months and I have missed it! So many great things have happened and my life has been a whirlwind. 

The most exciting thing to happen is that I got a new job. I am now the Blog Editor for Plus Model Magazine!!! YAY!!!

It's a great opportunity that found me. I had no idea that the position was available until the Editor-in-Chief Maddy Jones approached me about it and the rest is history. It's such a honor to be working with Maddy and her team. They're all awesome.

My birthday is on Monday and anyone who knows me, knows how I crazy I get around this time. It's like celebration mode. lol!

I also joined a blog collective called Ahead of The Curve. It's a group of plus size fashion bloggers who blog about one theme every month so you can see the diversity of our fashion in our words. I am in the company of some amazing and fabulous ladies. We have a blog post coming up so stay tuned for that.

I recently lost my marbles and cut all of my hair off into a pixie cut, lol. But I will save all those details for a future post. It really has been an empowering experience.

All in all, I am good. I know this blog has gotten dark at times, especially with the death of my dad. I'm still grieving but I am learning to pick up the pieces and live. I just take it one day at a time. But I assure you, I plan to keep the darkness at a minimum because it's just not who I am. Life is always going to be full of setbacks and disappointments. People will act in ways that will have you wanting to scream. And sometimes relationships and friendships end and you're just not ready to let go. But the one constant thing that remains through all of this is your attitude. We always have a choice on how to look at things.

I'm not perfect but I am learning to not take things too much to heart. Especially the things beyond my control. And I want to focus more on the great things in my life. The sky's the limit!!!

With that said, I will be blogging more about the things I love and still being my insightful, authentic self, lol. But now, I realize that despite the bad things, I can still be happy. It's all about the little things. That's true happiness for you...when you can smile through it all.

So, I don't know about you but I plan to smile daily, no matter what. And rock the hell out of this short hair. ;)
