Its the Weekend! May Wrap Up!


Hello Friends, Happy Saturday!
Its been another 30 days and where oh where has the time gone. We are finally feeling the Summer weather and I'm excited. April Showers definitely bring Many May Flowers! Nature definitely has a way of making life more beautiful. This month has been about adjusting and adapting this new phase in my life. Its a new way of thinking and being and embracing what the thirties will mean for my life.  I wrote about how I felt turning thirty and now what the first thirty days felt like. May started with the word embrace and it definitely defined the mood for May.

EMBRACE: 
Now that the excited has ended I wanted May  to be about getting things done and writing down things I wanted to do both short term and long term goals. When I stumbled upon this blog post on my twitter feed the Monthly Goals LinkUp I knew I had to participate so here are my May 2015 goals.
The realities of being a good writer and blogger can be challenging at times but it all comes down to passion and the vision one has. But sometimes you just have to vent, I really enjoyed reading this  post about being a black blogger. Each day I  discover new blog posts and real struggles like this one!
