Last month I shared the lessons I learned in the month of January . Well I’m still learning and here are the lessons that I learned in February.
Your tribe is important
I have always known this but for 24 hours towards the end of the month I was in #Blackgirlmagic heaven. I spent Friday night happy hour with my high school tribe. Our graduating class was small, 54 total I think, so it’s not unusual that lifetime bonds were formed. Taking the time to actually sit still and enjoy a drink and a meal was just what we all needed. Saturday I had brunch with a new tribe. Getting like-minded women together to share, inspire, uplift and encourage one another is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Girl, get you a tribe!
Don’t be shy about promoting yourself
It’s not easy for me to promote myself. I always feel a little, NO a lot of, awkwardness when I’m saying “look at me, look at me”! You would think that in order to blog & put myself out there that I wouldn’t have an issue with self-promotion. Believe me I am working SO HARD to move past this. In order for me to take my blog to a certain level I’m going to have to be the first person to say “Look at me”. So if you get tired of seeing me or hearing about me…….that means I’m doing it right.
Reading is fundamental
People, people, people…. PLEASE pick up a book!!! It won’t bite, I promise you. Try it…you might learn something. Enough said.
Millennials, I truly love you guys but you WEAR. ME. OUT!
I say this jokingly but in all seriousness, they really do make me tired. I truly enjoy the go getter spirit, ready to change the world, full of unique ideas, ready to get things done like yesterday. I do love it and them but man they make my head spin sometimes. Millennials…it’s ok to stop & think before you act. It’s ok to ask someone that has been there & done that. It’s ok that you didn’t that promotion in 6 weeks….who knows what week 7 has waiting for you. Chill for a minute…please!!
Bet you can’t wait for what happens in March
