My Friday situation is good this week. I had a full week and it was good for my personal goals and my business goals.
I attended our local Greater Austin Black Chamber luncheon. The topic was The State of Black Business. I was able to re-connect with people and meet some new entrepreneurs. The rest of the week I did work on my business. I’m re-launching so I been working on sponsorships and just day to day operations. It ain’t easy!!!
But my fun was today. I use art as my self-care and this morning, I met a friend and we did our art projects. Believe it or not, my art is getting better. I have said it before, it does not look like three-year-old art :). It is so relaxing to sip on coffee, talk and let my creativity go wild. I am participating in the #WorldWatercolorMonth this month, so I was able to create some pieces for that.
I hope your week has been better. With all the continued tragedies around the country, to relax a bit and take care of myself and my mental space, art always does the job for me. I still pray for our country and people who are affected by the loss of their loved ones.What have you done for your self-care lately?
Have a great weekend see y’all next week.

Hi everyone! This week has been full of emotion and anxiety. It is also very hot and humid here in Austin and I have been staying inside and working.
With the latest happenings I’m not in the mood to write. I’m sad and frustrated. So I’m going to keep it brief.
I pray for the two families that loss their loved one and the families of the police officers that loss their lives.

Life… My Friday Situation
I have been away and I have missed writing about what’s happening with me in my life. Every day, as I think about writing a post, I decide “I will do it tomorrow.” Tomorrow comes and I don’t write.
I have been reading other blogs and thinking about my neglect of my own blog but my motivation has not been there. I had to create a social media plan for writing stories and doing videos as part of my business and decided why not add my personal blog to my calendar to ensure I get something out at least once a week. So here I am.
I’m not sure what you will read here, but I can tell you it will be about my life. Lately, I have had to adjust to taking care of my elderly mom with my sister, re-launching my business, manage my mental health, keep my marriage strong and find time to be me. I’ve been busy.
I will do my best to have something posted weekly. I’m going to spend some time researching topics and telling stories about my life. I should have enough content to share :). So hold on, I will be back and thanks for sticking around and reading my blog.

I would tell you my week has been emotional. But with the emotion, it has been good too I should say. I’m learning to balance two businesses so scheduling and time management has become super important.
IF WE WERE HAVING A GLASS OF WINE I would tell you that grief is a funny feeling that will creep up on you in ways you don’t see coming. My mother celebrated her 89th birthday. We had cake and ice cream and gifts were given. I then took a photo with my mother, sister and niece and all was good I thought. My sister and I rarely post family photos or our family business but living in this world 89 years deserve a little attention. So I thought I was fine looking at the photo but I wasn’t. The next morning I woke up crying. I could not stop. That photo was missing my middle sister that passed away and all I saw was the empty space. It hit me right in the heart. But it showed me that even though I push myself doing work and filling my time with stuff, when grief hits it will stop you in your tracks. It threw my whole day. It was a hard and emotionally day for all my family.
IF WE WERE HAVING A GLASS OF WINE I would tell you I decided to rest and enjoy the quiet moments because I am emotionally spent but this weekend I will do something that makes me smile and just relax. I may have to work because two companies require time and commitment.
Happy Holidays and I will talk to you again soon.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m doing some major changes for the new year. I want 2016 to be a good year for me and my family. This year has been hard on me and I’m just now moving ahead with what I need to do.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m tired and I need a vacation. But because I’m building a business, a vacation is not on my books right now, but I do plan to have a beach vacation in 2016. I feel I’m running on empty most of the time, but sacrifices have to be made to have two businesses.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m looking forward to some down time the last week of December. It is the only way I can start my new year with a fresh perspective. I have things I want to do, but in order those things to happen I have to be physically and emotionally fit.
If we were having coffee, I would wish all you a happy holiday and a great new year! I hope you have enjoyed our coffee time!

Well I’m really struggling to get this challenge done. I need to get a plan and stop flying by the seat of my pants. I’m committed to the challenge and process so in the coming weeks I hope it gets better.
I work at a Coworking space called Orange Coworking. This is where I get work done and spend time around people. I’m going to spend time planning out my topics. Actually I started this “if we were having coffee…” I think I may just stick with that.
I apologize for the rambling. See ya tomorrow!

Okay so I missed day one. I had signed up for National Novel Writing Month but as the time got closer I could not decide on what I would write. On Saturday, I came across the NABLOPOMO and after chatting with another blogger, I decided this would work better for me.
Yesterday flew by before I new it day one was gone. Not sure what I will write but will most likely be about my day. Maybe. We’ll see everyone tomorrow.
