Well what can I say, it's week three of 2017 and I am OVERJOYED with 2017 already!! I feel better than I have in a long time, I am excited about progress and change and I have grown up enough that I am at a point where in 2017 I will no longer deal with BS that upsets me and takes me out of my happy zone. I'm not going to argue with people and push for them to change even if it is for the better. Being a leader can be tough. For one most leaders are passionate are and hard working and when people see that it's hard for them to deal with because most people would rather complain about their LACK than to actually push for change. In my personal opinion it's mediocrity by default because of laziness and simply not wanted to deal with it. People just end up stuck on a merry go round endless cycle that they can't seem to break. In the past few years I have encountered so many people and many are very stubborn and hardheaded and aren't willing to change. And then there are those who THINK they are coachable and are FAR from it because they don't listen and take heed but it's even more dangerous because they feel they have it all figured out but they still choose to do their own thing.
As a soon to be 33 year old woman, growing up o would have told you I have issues with authority, I don't like being told what to do. I don't like working with people and I hate people telling me how to do things. That philosophy is GONE for me now lol I do what I'm told by my leader and not because she's my boss but because she has been where I want to go and if I want to follow in her footsteps then I have to learn from her every chance I get. In 2017 God has shown me so much about so many things and NOW I'm finally seeing some things that took me almost 3 years to see but it's better late than never. One thing I LOVE about what I do and the business I am a part of, I am always learning and growing because I'm always tested. It's tough but I have to get thru this lesson so that I can be a better leader so I am praying for guidance and for God to help me find those who want my help!!
So lessons are being learned this Year and ART is being made... I have my first show of 2017 next month and I'm excited to create some beautiful pieces!! I finished a commission piece yesterday and it was absolutely beautiful and gave me inspiration to create a collection called "Bronze Queens" to celebrate the BEAUTY and Regal vibe of the Black woman! I am very proud of myself because as usually I have so much on my plate I honestly don't know what to do some days lol but I do know that I absolutely LOVE what I do and every aspect of my journey!! I know 2017 will be AMAZING! And of course YES I am still very into my planning and I have gone a little insane over Happy Planners so I will be doing some spreads soon!!
