Morning Tea on 10/29/14

Morning Tea on 10/29/14? My tea is consumed by GRACE, the word at the core of my thoughts these days. It is popping up everywhere I look, my books, instagram, twitter, church, and I am captivated. It’s kind of hard to explain how I can be captivated by a single word but I’ll try too.

Before I speak on where I am at in my life today I will tell you what this post is. This post is me, what I do in the outfits you see, how I feel day-to-day, and why I blog even though it gets rough. I want my readers to know me, the women who read this to get a glimpse of my life behind the lens or screen. Yes, we are probably more relatable than you think.

Yall know I go to work every single day, sometimes excited sometimes not so much, and stare at spreadsheets from 9-6! There is literally nothing glamorous about being a CPA, but I love my career path. It’s so much to learn and the information I learn can be shared/taught to others easily, I enjoy that so much.

When I am not working I am having a full on battle with my mind- I literally think too many thoughts all the time. The ‘your 25 crisis’ is on back telling me I need to feel a certain way while the books I read tell me I am right where I need to be. To keep sane I set  daily reminders on my phone for celebration and reflection, in others words, reminders to remember I am doing a hell of a job at life and I need appreciate the blessings received/to be received. Simple things like that can get real tricky when you’re updating 50 million social media sites and trying to just keep it all relevant. Some days I say F it all and netflix until I fall asleep. I won’t even go into my relationship life. I volunteer, I shop, I do wine, I cook, I love candy and my mom. I love spotify. It’s all real.

So yes, relatable I am, I go through the common struggles of a 25-year-old woman. My life cannot be summed up in a perfect picture, my life isn’t perfect, so I wanted to share more to connect with you all. I try to stick to my niche which is career related stuff and personal style inspiration- my crazy life is a little bit outside those lines.

A big piece of me that is constantly showcased is my desire to give back to my people, my community. Standard information available to others at an early age that isn’t spread through the black neighborhoods of America. I am a firm believer that with the share of knowledge-style,finance, or career- a nation can be changed. Read more
