Saturday Night Snack

So I was preparing for bed last night, and this is what I gathered to take with me. (see above pic) While most people may take a cup of tea, or their favorite midnight snack, I opted to take all the necessary gadgets that I thought I may need throughout the night.

I must admit that at first I felt sad that this was what my Saturday nights have consisted of lately. But, then I felt a sense of empowerment because I was actually excited about finishing up some things I had started earlier in the day. I was simply moving to a more comfortable space.

Strangely enough, I don’t like working in bed. Things get lost between the sheets, there’s a constant need to get up to get-more things, and I tend to get distracted more so at night when I’m working. For example, when I’m ready to post a blog, I may get distracted by a tab that I had opened earlier- then suddenly I’m on Saks.com shopping for heels. Blog? Forgotten about for the next 30 minutes.

While I sometimes become frustrated with the amount of time I spend working, I have to admit that it has become my way of life. Moreover, I think I like it, and it’s time to own up to it. I like staying up at odd hours of the night working on projects and responding to pesky notifications. I enjoy writing while watching my favorite reality TV show. Sitting up in bed with my Laptop and a glass of wine on the nightstand is actually soothing. Though I may be distracted, I’m still somewhat productive.

I guess this would be a great time to point out the fact that as long as you’re happy with what you’re doing….go for it! Too often do we look on social media and suddenly find ourselves feeling depressed and weird because we’re not out at a party like ‘those ladies in the picture’. And, just because you’re not on a romantic vacation in Italy “like that one couple”, doesn’t mean you don’t have ‘romance’ in your life. Learn to be happy for others without feeling sorry for yourself.

I’m sitting in bed, with my wine, laptop, and cell phone. I’m also catching up on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. My phone is not ringing; which is good.  I have popcorn and nuts on stand-by just in case I get hungry. The air-condition has cooled the house just right. And…at this moment I don’t have to ‘tinkle’; which means I’ll be comfy in my spot for at least an hour or two.

In short…I’m happy.

Keep Going!

Ooooh wee! After all of the late nights, hundreds of emails, and many moments of frustration, I can finally say that the Sexy Singular Launch Weekend is booked! Proposals and contracts have been signed and we are ready to go! Of course, the work is never ending as we still have numerous details to perfect. But, we are moving right along and I’m super excited.

The past few weeks have been so stressful. When you’re a perfectionist like me, you tend to go a bit overboard. Everything just has to be perfect…

Aside from the business aspect, I also had a few personal challenges. I have grown, others have changed, and life is somewhat different. I was exercising today and became so emotional about the past, but ever ready for the future. Regardless of our situations, we have to remember to find the joy in the moment. When you turn your dreams into a reality, it often causes anxiety and mixed emotions: an internal confusion that not even you can understand or explain to others.

In short, I guess the only thing you have to do is remember to keep going. The people who are supposed to be there at the end of the day; will be there. The people who are supposed to cheer you on; will do so- They will be there. Friends will come and go, but luckily it is a known fact that we often find that we have everything (and everyone) we need once we reach our destination. If you feel like the value in you is ever overlooked, there is no need to worry. Remember that not everyone has had the privilege of seeing a shooting star when it passes by. Nevertheless, there are others who are actually gazing upon it at that very moment.

You are that star! Your light is bright and the opportunity to experience your beauty is rare. People are looking up to you to see what you will do next; and you dare not disappoint. You are always an inspiration to someone. Never let your situations, people, or failures make you feel that you are not good enough. As you keep excelling, the opinions of others will seem to matter less, and the need to be told: “I’m proud of you” -will no longer be necessary.  Confidence is all you need.

Keep your stature tight and your armor in tip top shape. You have places to go, things to do, and people to see- and the Sexy Singular lady always looks her best!

Anyway, as you can tell, I’ve been through something. It’s fairly over now, but I wanted to share with you what I told myself when I was feeling blue: Keep going! You’ll be just fine. I promise.
