Too many things at once

August 30, 2017

Ever sit down and try to focus on one or two things at a time, only to discover your mind actually has about 100 things going on at once? Well, welcome to the wanders of my mind. As I sit at my desk trying to concentrate on writing my very first blog and what it should be about, I am finding that my thoughts are jumbled and bouncing all over the place. Let's see what I can make of this first post. I will start by attempting to give you a glimpse into who I am.

I grew up in a two parent household to an amazing set of parents. I was an only child for 9 years...and then there were two! My father was a college basketball player and middle school P.E. teacher and JV basketball coach. So naturally, I wanted to 'be like my daddy" and got involved in dance and sports at the age of 4 or 5. I grew up with a passion for dance (hip-hop mainly even though I can't dance a lick, I got rhythm tho) and basketball.

Alongside sports, creativity use to be one of the front-runners of who I am but as the years have come and gone, as my body has aged and as my brain matter fades, I have realized it is much much harder for me to allow my creativity to blossom. I use to love writing poetry, arts and crafts and all things creative. As I grew older, I dabbled in graphic design and later started doing graphic design as a side hustle. I am now a 33 year old, single black mother to an amazingly funny, loving, always giving out kisses, 4 year old daughter. I am and always have been in some way affiliated with sports and fitness, until 4 years ago B.R. (Before Raelyn) was born. I was never a street runner or a club goer, but I had my share of activities and fun times. Now that I am a single mother, I have become that "boring black girl" I never wanted to be.

Follow me as I journal my obstacles of daily living and about becoming that "boring black girl", juggling motherhood, single-hood, a full-time job, weight gain, and finding my TRUE inner happiness.
