Let’s just take some time to discuss the trash assery of 2021, with Covid dominating our very existence. WHEW LAWD this ghetto ass virus. I just CAN NOT EVEN. Folks and their lack of intelligence around science and Covid. WHEW. THE. GHETTO.

Other than the people in this ghetto place displaying the complete lack of belief in science and willingness to go with a full embrace of Darwinism, a sistas’ year was absolutely amazing.

Last year I wrote a list of goals that I wanted to accomplish in 2021, and boy did I nail it and beyond. So, even though I was wallowing in the anti-science Covid ghetto of this place, a sistas’ year was quite exceptional. I would honestly say 2021 was the best year of my life. It’s really crazy because although I realized this year was good, I didn’t recognize until now how so.

Here I am on New Year’s Eve, taking time to reflect upon the truly amazing life I’ve cultivated for myself in a relatively short period. I try to speak things into existence and create steps to accomplish what I put into the universe.

In 2020 my goals were
๐Ÿ”ธ More travel, business, and pleasure
๐Ÿ”ธ Development of more friendships
๐Ÿ”ธ Focusing a lot more on my personal life
๐Ÿ”ธ Dedication to becoming more physically active
๐Ÿ”ธ Enjoying more things from my bucket list
๐Ÿ”ธ Adding more things to my bucket list
๐Ÿ”ธ Pampering myself more
๐Ÿ”ธ Spending more quality time with friends
๐Ÿ”ธ Stepping out of my comfort zone more
๐Ÿ”ธ Living way more life

In 2021 My goals were to really embrace these, and I did! In addition to the list above, my goals were:

๐Ÿ”ธ I got back out in the dating world. It is virtual, but that will not be forever.
๐Ÿ”ธ I started an outside garden in the spring and an inside garden in the fall.
๐Ÿ”ธ I started eating mostly organic foods and gave up sugary cereal.
๐Ÿ”ธ I started an LLC in an area I wanted to get into for ten years.
๐Ÿ”ธ I focused more on spirituality, balancing chakras, crystals, essential oils, and overall wellness.
๐Ÿ”ธ I started making my own body washes, lotions, and body butter.

MORE TRAVEL & BUCKET LIST
I totally understood the assignment. That was to stay alive during Covid. I was aware that this involved minimizing exposure to people and staying in the country. However, I went to the Dominican Republic, Key West Florida, and Puerto Rico. I stayed safe and checked off a few things from my travel bucket list.

EATING BETTER & TREATING MY BODY BETTER
Covid forced me to revisit some of my food choices. I embraced organic foods in a way I never had before. My body felt better as I made better food choices. In addition to buying organic, I stepped up my organic gardening game.

When I thought about the food I put in my body, I naturally thought about the products I put ON my body. That led me to switch to natural body products when I could. When there wasn’t a choice, I started making my own.

As I focused on my health, that forced me to think about spirituality, getting and staying centered. 2021 was the year of mind, body, and soul.

REAL ESTATE & LLC
2021 was about business, real estate, and the LLC. I started renovating three houses at one time. Everyone warned me of how difficult it would be, but baby, nothing prepared me for the difficulties. I got major structural issues addressed in all three properties then shifted my focus to one property. I’ve completed that one, and I will move on to the other two I started previously in early 2022.

Early 2022, I will also circle back to focusing on my LLC. That project was put on temporary hold while taking care of property renovations.

FOCUSING ON FRIENDSHIPS
I have amazing friends. I wanted to focus on being a better friend to them. So being attentive, engaged, and intuned to my people has been a focus since I put this out into the universe. I did just that this year. It has been rewarding beyond measure.

FOCUSING MORE ON MY PERSONAL LIFE & DATING
When I realized I needed to create deeper relationships with my friends, I also recognized that I needed that energy to extend to romantic relationships. I knew I would have to pull on everything I learned and had to unlearn from therapy to do so.

Last year this time, I started checking out a few dating apps. YES, we were right in the throws of a pandemic with no vaccine. However, one thing I learned in 2019 was I didn’t want to die without experiencing LOVE or something similar before I left this world.

So I ventured into the dating space but with many different expectations than in the past. I also had a much different mindset. That’s because I was fresh out of therapy with all of my relationship issues acknowledged and or addressed.

Guess what? By early February, I’d met myself a real deal BAE. At that time, I used the term, Pre-BAE. That’s because we were still in a pandemic, and we had not met in person. We had a lot in common, but we were also very different in many areas. So we got vaccinated and met in person. Fast forward months later, we are still going strong and in full BAE status going on BAE-Cations and shit.

2021, in a nutshell, has been the most amazing year of my life. I changed the path of my existence, stepped way out of my comfort zone and 100% embraced living in my truth. It would have been close to perfect had we not been living through this ghetto ass pandemic. ANY. WHO.

2022 Goals
๐Ÿ”ธ Learn to balance my time better
๐Ÿ”ธ Spending more time with family
๐Ÿ”ธ Visit friends more
๐Ÿ”ธ Love harder
๐Ÿ”ธ Relax more
๐Ÿ”ธ Save more money
๐Ÿ”ธ Make more money
๐Ÿ”ธ Focus on my LLC
๐Ÿ”ธ Launch a mobile app
๐Ÿ”ธ Seriously research snowbird locations
๐Ÿ”ธ Travel more
๐Ÿ”ธ Continue to live in my truth

2021 was TRASH just like 2020, due to the ghetto ass pandemic. However, I am literally at the best place Iโ€™ve ever been, economically, emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I look forward to keeping this same energy for the entire last half of my life.

I would love to know how you plan to make 2022 better than 2021. Check me out onย FB,ย andย Twitterย and let me know
