I celebrated my 28th birthday on June 10th -YAY!!!!!!!!! I had an amazing weekend, I have such a great circle of friends here in Miami. I am probably at the happiest I’ve ever been. I’ve been through many obstacles since I left Boston but where I am now mentally, physically and emotional is truly a blessing.
I broke up with the man I was seeing when I moved here (I’m using the word man loosely lol). I went from sleeping on my cousin’s couch for a few weeks to staying at a friends house for a little over a month. In what seemed to be like a forever, I rented a room from this girl that was the perfect transition because she was never home. Within a few months, through a coworker, I found a roommate and it has been a match made in heaven since lol. I cried several times and debated going back to Boston but I didn’t give up. I thought I was going to go crazy because the company I worked for went out of business and I lost a little over $5000 in miss wages, I struggled to keep up for awhile but my family stepped in tremendously. I am a hustler at heart, so during this time, I was doing small gigs to make enough money to get by. But soon after God blessed me with the perfect job for an amazing company. This transition was extremely difficult. I did everything from the silent cries, to the ugly cry where I couldn’t breathe in the car. I even thought that maybe it was a sign that I needed to go back to Boston but something in me could not come to terms with that decision.
28 is pretty close to 30, and that honestly scares the shit out of me but I am truly happy. For so long, I thought I would be married by now (HA). I am embracing all the woman I am. I am more in love with myself than I have ever been. I am empowered at how resilient I have become. I am blessed with such an amazing family, that loves me regardless of how annoying I can be (I am very annoying). I am blessed to have the group of friends I have, I love them! I cherish all of my relationships and every heartache and pain that I’ve encountered along the way. I am grateful for life, I am grateful for this life. I am beautiful, I am strong, I am sexy, I am educated, I am resilient, I am a QUEEN!
