2023: A Year of Realignment

This post is really somewhat of a journal entry, but if it hit, let it stick. I’ll be honest with y’all, as I try my best to be. I lose myself from time to time. We all do. It happens because life happens. But between late 2020 and most of 2021….WHEW I was going through it. I was finally going through healing and self-accountability for my last romantic endeavor, and loneliness was taking its toll. So, when 2022 came around and I was in a better place, I just wanted to have fun. And boy, did I have a time last year!

When it came time to prepare a vision board for 2023, I THOUGHT my word for the new year would be “reinvention.” I was stuck on that for a while. I needed to look a certain way, act a certain way, make a certain amount of money, and make some serious life moves. I needed to “be different.” That was before praying and meditating on my 2023 ideas and goals.

God showed me that I didn’t need to “reinvent myself.” I needed to realign myself with my purpose for this site and the other plans He had for my life.

Learning to B Good with Being Alone

This post….is for the singles. The ones who smile seeing their friends get married and have kids, while lowkey wondering when it will be their turn. I’m with you. This post is NOT for the judgemental. This is a transparent post for me that I hope reaches whoever it’s supposed to reach. If it don’t apply, let it fly.

Let me start this post by saying this isn’t meant to be bitter, mad, or upset. I’m really not. This is not a man-bashing post or a post to lament my singleness. This isn’t a post to open the door for dates, either. *laughs* I’ve just been taking a lot of time to learn things about myself and my patterns these past few years. Including my dating and relationship habits and how they’ve reflected who I am and what I needed to work on. This post has been on my heart for a long, long time. Today, May 1, 2022, on the fifth anniversary of Imperfectly B, as I work towards a new level of the site, it seems fitting to write on this. Soooo….here we go.

Six Ways To Spark Inspiration on “Live Creative Day”

There seems to be a “National Day” for almost anything, but this one, I can get behind. September 14th is National Live Creative Day. The purpose of the day is to take time for creative hobbies that we may have pushed aside. Taking time for hobbies like painting, dancing, writing, and other outlets gives our minds time to reset and see things from a new perspective.

As adults, we often get swamped in work, family, and other things. So we don’t always have the time or energy to tap into our creativity and imagination with different hobbies. I challenge you (as I challenge myself) to do something today and beyond (at least once a week or month) that allows you to be creative and have fun.

Here are some great ways to explore your imagination and creativity on Live Creative Day!
