Happy Saturday y’all!
For those of you that recently started reading my poetry and following my blog, welcome! I hope that you decide to stay subscribed and that you enjoy all of the poetry I will be sharing with you! For those of you that have been following me for a while now, please know that I am grateful!
I am having a great Saturday. I woke up early to go for a walk. I am currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I made tamales with a cousin I barely met in May of this year. Her friends were really nice and my aunt was showing all of us how to make the tamales the way my great-grandma made them.
I didn’t know this but New Mexico is known for their chilies and my God, they made the tamales taste even better!
I am now home and I was watching Insecure. Molly is a bad bish and Issa is a hot mess but super relatable! I know this show is not new new but I am finally watching it and it’s so good!
Watching the characters go through major life changes had me thinking about my life and where I am now. This years has been hectic because of the pandemic AND it has also been a year where I made the most life altering decisions (aka move to a different state, clean house in the friendship and toxic family department, take up space…this list goes on and on). I have one more major step to take but I will tell you about it once it’s done!
I am petrified but I am also proud of myself.
Fuck it. I am tired of waking up and wishing my life was different. I can’t control a pandemic but I can control what my life looks like under a pandemic and I deserve to be happy and to have the best of the best (quality life, quality friendships, etc.)
I am going to dream bigger.
I am going to dream much much bigger. It’s time that I give myself a chance.
I hope that you also allow yourself to dream and if you have lost your way, I hope that you are able to find your path soon.
Happy Saturday! I will post this and then I will be taking a tequila shot to celebrate myself and to celebrate all of you!
I would love to learn about your accomplishments this year! If you’re interested in sharing what you have been up to, please comment on this post and when you’re done, take a shot with me.
I appreciate you!
