Not to brag, but I'm slayin' it!

Sometimes I just want to give you an update, a peek through the peephole, at what can be yours as a survivor of child/domestic abuse. This just happens to be one of those times.

At the beginning of the year, I decided to call the year "2023 the year of me." I had some goals in mind: write a book, open an Etsy, work on this site, get a job, get my health together, finish school, and continue working on my mental health. Well, your girl is out here crushin' it and it's time for an update.

Last week was monumental. My physical therapist told me he's happy with all the progress we've finally made (I failed out the 1st time for reasons beyond my control but went back and crushed it this time.). I decided that meant that it was time to move on and get a job. By the end of the week, I'd done just that. I'm working a gig job because I want to have flexibility but there are still quotas to meet to keep me engaged. Essentially I'm doing merchandising and auditing.

I'm also doing decent with other things in my life as well. In school, I only have 5 chapters to finish. I also only have about 5 chapters to finish for the rough draft of my book.

What I need to spend more time on is this site and my Etsy. I know things take time but I feel like I could be posting more and also doing more marketing. That's why I've decided to spend some time this morning working on these things only. It seems that your girl here does better concentrating on one thing at a time. Like yesterday I almost finished a ton of crafts. So while I'm waiting on a ton of things to come in the mail I'm concentrating here and on Etsy.

Again, I don't say this to brag - even though it may sound like that's what I'm doing. My point is that regardless of what you've been through (and you can see I've been through a lot in my 40-some years of life) you can always come back and make your dreams come true. That's what I finally get to work on and just look at how it's going. The same thing can also be true for you if you'll just give it a chance. Go get it!
