Hey DateYourselfGirl Family!!! It's been a while since we've connected. What have I been up to, you ask? Well, my focus changed and I began to really delve into my career. I have been chasing my dream, as an actor, for so long and things have really been on the upswing. I have been afforded more opportunities to work and collaborate with artists in LA, Chicago, New Orleans, Charleston, and Atlanta. Acting has really kept me busy and I'm loving every minute of it and trying to soak up all this new knowledge that I am gaining. And with me recently turning 40 I am learning more and more about myself. I am truly being unapologetically ME. What you see is what you get. I am no longer looking to change who I am just to fit in. I am taking the opportunities to say NO to people and to things that I don't want to do. It's been so freeing and empowering and liberating. Who would've thought looking out for yourself could keep you so sane? I have also decided to make my family and friends a top priority. Building memories and sustaining strong relationships has been my main focus and it's helped me to mend some old wounds. I am having real, honest conversations with my parents and we are getting to know each other all over again. It's been a roller-coaster ride but so worth it. We are not the same people we were five, ten, twenty years ago. We have all evolved in our personal and professional lives. And now with my parents in retirement we have more time to really spend with each other and I'm no longer taking that time for granted.
BUT DateYourselfGirl, Inc. is still my baby and I want to continue to inspire single women and those of you who are on the market to continue to do the necessary work to becoming a better you. The 2020 DYG Diaper Drive will also include sanitary items for women and girls so there are some great things on the horizon. But now that I'm 40 I want to be even more transparent than EVER! You deserve to know that my DYG lifestyle hasn't been this fantastic life that I tend to portray. Yes, I enjoy being single and yes I enjoy growing and developing BUT I am at the point in my life where I want a companion. As fabulous as turning 40 is, I'd be lying to you if I didn't feel like I don't have much time to find love. I know, I know love is supposed to find you but how much longer should I wait? How much longer does it take to heal? How many counseling sessions and church sermons do I need to hear before my forever love comes walking into my life? It seems like it's taking forever but I am vowing to take this next chapter of my life by the balls and manifest the life that I desire. No more wasting time and energy on situationships, textationships, and people who have no real intentions on building a life with me. You just wait...this year will be bigger and better than EVER and I'm going to talk about it ALL. The good, the bad, the ugly! So in the meantime in between time, remember to DATEYOURSELFGIRL!!!
