I had a dream Friday night that the world endedRemember the scare? In 2012? I think I have this dream upon every new year Everyone around me is screaming f--k 2016 & "New Year, New Me!" but I get scared I'm not alone on this and I know it I fear that it's a new year Wondering... Did I do enough this past year? Will I do enough the next? That fear translates When the clock strikes midnight - it's unavoidable The doubts I've got to face them I've got to take them & say yes, we did it..we're here

Still Joyful So did I do enough? Let's see...

  • I decided to let my fro rock out for good in 2016
  • I got my first real job AND a promotion in 2016
  • I moved into my own place in 2016
  • I let love in in 2016
  • I let friends in in 2016
  • I accepted help in through the likes of my therapist and rode the wave until it settled to calm waters in 2016
  • I started this blog in 2016
  • I redefined my mind in 2016
  • Accepted that I am a "Bad Feminist" (thanks Roxanne Gay) in 2016
  • Stopped suppressing my black girl woes & let it out in 2016

I almost stopped blogging the other day I thought, maybe this was a "2016 thing", and that I could write one last post and conclude this part of my life but this is a part of my life One of those things I'm not willing to let go of So will I do enough in 2017? *See next 100s of blog posts*
