Anniversary are days to commemorate milestones and major events. It is also a time to reflect on the changes in life. Its been a year since I started this blog as look back I am amazed at the progress I have made.
A year ago today, I got laid off from a job where I was unhappy. At the time, I had no intentions of leaving because I was afraid to the unknown. The year has taught me that I am a marketable and skilled worker. I have a new job where my work is valued and there is great opportunity ahead.
Last year, I was on my way to my best friends wedding and unsure of how to identify myself (incidentally the Bride is about to be a Mom). This year I have over 100 followers for this blog and I am confident in my identity. I am writer! More importantly I am Ebony and that is enough!
Graduate school was just a thought last year. This week I wrote two papers and all I do is read. I am getting my but kicked and I am loving it. School has got me thinking political again.
I wanted to write a play last year. I have produced my play three times in two states. Not to mention I am performing for the Black Woman’s Political Caucus tomorrow. Not bad. We are still working on the book though. It’s going a memoir now by the way. Four chapters and counting!
As for love, I am still single. I did have I bit of a break through. I dated someone I liked. I didn’t work out, but I opened up to someone. Frankly, for all the dating I was doing I never gave anyone a chance. I realize now I wasn’t ready
Grandma was here last year. I am realizing just how much I have lost. I know I have to live because that’s what she would have wanted. That’s what I am doing.
Thank you to all my followers and readers. You have keep me inspired though the year. Now I am asking for your help. What should I do this year? Leave me a comment.
