A Brief Hiatus/Summer of Confidence

Geez it has been awhile since I’ve posted. Miss me yet? It’s been a busy few months, and they have flown by. I can’t believe on Monday it will be October! The best month yet. Why you ask? Because it is my birthday month and of course Libra season. We October Libras are the best. :) And of course my Libra Gang’s birthdays too! (Shout out to GDubs and CB! #gangganggang) And the best holiday EVER – Halloween! I’m getting prepped and ready for all of this and I feel like I’m a bit behind. But I’m slowly getting my life together.

But this summer was good to me. For the first time in a long time, I let loose and was happy. I got to do me, and enjoy things and do whatever I wanted to without having to worry about anyone else. It was the summer of “living my best life” literally. And it was the summer of the crop top. I told y’all on Instagram that I was going to do it, and I damn sure did, belly rolls and all. I felt uncomfortable a few times, but then I said “YOLO” and went about my business. Not one person cared, and I gained back some of my confidence. I also learned about hip dips (thanks KC!) and felt better in knowing that I’m not the only one, and it doesn’t make me less of a woman. I’m slowly learning to let go of inhibitions and just have fun. It’s refreshing and even better when I have my crew there to support me. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m happy with the growth I’ve seen.

Summer ‘18 was one to rival the Summer of ’98. Too bad it only took 20 years to make another memorable one. I promise to change that in the future.

Til the next time..
