October First…

Is it me or is this year getting crazier and crazier the closer we get to the end? The time is going by so fast but it seems like the year is becoming more bizarre. Well, I am hoping that the fourth quarter of the year, brings us bit more peace. On today’s post I am reflecting, sharing my personal goals, latest fashion style & trends, and a brief blog note for the month of  October. Lets get into it!

I have mention it so many time before, but this year has definitely been an emotional one. We are dealing with a lot however, I am praying that this month can bring us some joy, and laughter. Even though, we are still socially distancing we can still have fun and enjoy our lives. Take a load off, and stop being so serious. Overall, for the month of October I want to focus on not taking everything so seriously. I need to enjoy my life. Life is so fragile, and I have to remind myself constantly that we only get one, so live it up.

Thus, I look forward to living more, enjoying all the good, and not staying in the bad too long. What are you looking forward to this month?

Fashion Note

To switch gears lets get into fashion! For the month of October, I am really going to dive in deeper when it comes to fall fashion. This is my favorite season, and I want to do it big.

On the blog I plan to share some of my favorite leather outerwear pieces, fall trends and how you can warm up your looks, affordably.

Personal Note/Goals

September has been such a bizarre month for me. I do not know how to explain it but, it was all over the place emotionally for me. One minute I am having so much fun with my friends, then the next I know I’m sad and over everything. I noticed that overthinking and being so serious has given me the blues . My focus this month is to enjoy life, and stop taking everything so serious. How is the question. Stay tuned

On the contrary, my career as mortgage underwriter is starting to get a bit better. I am still struggling through the growing pains however, thankful that I did step outside my comforter zone.I will always being proud of myself for stepping out off, and pushing through fear. Let get into my October goals.

In October My Goals Are…
  1. Give myself time to pray and meditate in the morning and at night. 
  2. Exercise for 20-30 minutes for 3 days out of the week
  3. Standalone in my new career. Do 1 more mortgage everyday than the day before. Make my way up to underwriting 40 loans a day. 
  4. Commit to buying  from 1-2 black owned business or donate to organization that benefits the Black community, or the underprivileged once a month.
