Change is something everyone has to go through. It’s just life! However today I’m going to be talking about good change! The change you need to experience in order to experience something new, something fresh you know. As you probably may have noticed, your girl has been quiet lately. I was sick for a few weeks being the main reason, however, there have been other factors which have influenced my semi-absence.
I think I may have mentioned this in my ’17 Things I learnt in 2017′ post or New Year, New Strategy 2017, that I’ve been on a quest for change. Roughly around October time, while reflecting, I thought wow I had a great year. I had my first big event, talking about my blog and my job. I worked with amazing brands like Farfetch and Coach and many more. Finally launched my YouTube channel, and had the pleasure of working with one of my favourite Luxury brands in my day job. I visited Cuba after dreaming of going there for so long, and also went to Marrakech. It was a good year as I was active, made new friends etc! However, something just wasn’t right. I felt like I coasted at the same time, so I started to make changes…
So Why the Change Tash?
‘Change’ gives us the opportunity to learn new things about ourselves, and test our limits. It’s an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and learn new skills, do things you never did before. A chance to exercise your creativity and to better yourself, and others around you. In essence, to make you more interested in you again, and more committed and driven to succeed. Everyone’s path in life is different. God does things in his own time, and even if you think things in your life are delayed, God is always on time. Trust me I know what I’m saying. Always make sure you are in direct competition with the person you was yesterday, and even an hour ago!
I feel like I’m entering a new season in my life, and it scares me but at the same time, I’m excited. Very soon I’ll be entering the next decade, and it’s made me so driven to achieve the things I dream of and to push myself. Last October, I went on a bit of a rampage. I had an event with RVMG who were amazing hosts! But that event highlight to me something I was aware of, but ignored. People who I least expected supported, promoted and came out. Some of my friends didn’t even bother to turn up. So I decided you know what sis let me cut out the dead weight. So I left Whatsapp groups, which caused a lot of drama haha! Meanwhile, it’s just a CHAT group, but some friendships literally hang on this app.
I also decided I wanted a new job. I had been at the same place for so long, got used it, didn’t feel challenged. A change was made to my hair, which for a black girl I don’t do often haha! I made a decision to go out more, with new people. Red lipstick is BRAND NEW! I used to wear red lipstick once every few years, no I wear almost daily. I’ve done things I would never do, and I can say I feel like life just got interesting again. I’m close with my day ones, started a new job with amazing people. I still love my oldies though (ACS). Finally, I started to rebrand my images and Instagram. If you’ve read this far then thank you for following me on this journey. Let’s be better together!
