Just when we thought 2020 was the year that dealt us insurmountable losses, a plethora of challenges, an array of surprises, and the unimaginables; 2021 has certainly taken us by storm!
Time Is Not Our Friend
In many ways 2021 was the year that defined multitudes of people and ignited them to hone in on their passions and purpose; then, also, to pursue them. This year, people seem to be moving with a sense of urgency and with so much intention. It almost feels like people have come to the realization that time is really not on our side. In fact, Friday, October 15, 2021 was THE day that caused me to really grasp that fact. On that day my dear sister friend LaTachia Morrissette Harper suddenly passed away at the tender age of 46 years young. Tachia was the epitome of beauty, brains, compassion, happiness, love, and living a purpose-driven life. She was truly loved and adored by the masses. Her death really took my breath away. Over the past two months, I have been thinking about her life, my life, and the lives of so many women entrepreneurs. Many of us are working 9-5s, working on side hustles, raising children, married or in relationships, and in pursuit of purpose, too. These things are great, but oftentimes we are so busy being, doing, and becoming that we neglect to truly take care of ourselves. I am certainly guilty of this. Are you guilty too? Tachia’s transition reminded me that we are human and oh so fragile. Yes, all of those things are important, but we need more. “Self care Saturday” or a “Soul food Sunday” is simply not enough. We must be just as intentional about our health as we are about other things in our life. We MUST add OURselves DAILY to our calendar. We MUST listen to our bodies and care for ourselves like we care for others.
At some point in most of our lives we will be given lemons—situations that really are difficult to fully comprehend. Instead of allowing yourself to be consumed by it, take a step back to find the lessons and the blessings in each situation. This year, 2022, I am committed to allowing all of my lessons to be the catalyst for my growth and development. But I am also putting MYSELF at the top of my “To Do List.
I am dedicating time for me on days that start with other letters than Ss. I am also giving myself permission to just be, be still, and to be balanced— YES, even as I Get the Bag!
