Seven years ago, I sold my house, placed my belongings in storage and set out on a journey that would include cutting off my locs..traveling to several countries, completing my MFA in creative writing, becoming a professor of creative writing and publishing two novels.
I started this journey soaked in heartbreak. I started this journey obsessed with all I had loss... and if I may be honest, it’s taken six years to shift my focus from obsessing over loss to celebrating all that I have gained. And I’m not talking about material or monetary gains. I’m taking about self-awareness and rediscovery.
If I am to be completely transparent - the unraveling of my old life really began in 2008... so it’s been a decade of upheaval and reorganization. I feel a seismic change heading my way - but unlike the one that occurred in 2008 - this one feels warm and fuzzy. I’m ready. I’m so ready....#ImStillHere
