The other day, I had a very touching conversation with my beautiful cousin Ebone, who happens to be an incredible educator working for Galena Park ISD. <3 Something she said to me really hit home, and I felt compelled to share!
~"This is our year to embrace the AND, not the OR."~
If 2020 taught me anything, it is the importance of taking advantage of the here and now. Tomorrow is NEVER promised. Therefore, now is the time for you to finish that project you have set aside. Now is the time for you to register for that class. Now is the time for you to take a leap of faith, and pursue your dream job/hobby.
Stop compromising true elation for temporary contentment. Now, I'm not saying quit your job, and drive across the country (unless that's what you want out of life; that's your business lol), but honestly try to make time to engage in things that bring you true joy and purpose! I am not saying it will be easy, but it will be worth it!
You can be a great mother AND a success entrepreneur.
You can be an amazing educator AND a talented photographer.
You can be a beautiful woman AND so much more!
DO NOT put a limit on your own greatness and potential. You are capable of extraordinary things. 2021 is your year to TAP IN, and embrace the AND!
