Too Excited to Sleep

I really should be asleep. Like really! Too much on my mind. Like, why did I forget to buy pearls for today’s inauguration? Been meaning to do it forever but didn’t want to go to the store. Ugh…COVID-19!! I know I had a set of pearls but I can’t remember where I put them. I do have a pearl bracelet, so that’ll have to do. See, I have unnecessary things on my mind.

Oh.. and the book anthology, Finally Free, will be released tomorrow. I want to go ahead and schedule the promo now, but I have no clue of what I want to say. Y’all, I have absolutely no clue of how to promote myself or this book. On the other hand, I do know how to be consistent. For the past week, I have been promoting the book daily from all of my social media platforms. It’s something I haven’t been comfortable with doing, but I’ve been doing it. Listen, the captions look a mess, but I get them out there. Lol! On a serious note, yesterday I posted that this book experience has been about so much more than becoming an author, it’s been about me embracing my purpose and taking the necessary steps towards moving forward. I can’t stop this time, or slow down. My purpose is too great and my time is now- not ten years from now, but NOW! I also received an email from my advisor saying that it’s time for me to decide if I’m going to continue with the doctoral program. Next semester begins March 1. As I said in the beginning, I have a lot on my mind.

Guess I could have made this a journal entry but I felt like sharing. Plus I needed to publish my mid-week blog so this works. Lol. Well y’all, I’m finally sleepy so I’m going to hit publish and go back to sleep. Today’s going to be a good day, and tomorrow is going to be even better. Speaking it!

Talk about “Speaking it!”– a friend gifted me this mug a few days ago. When I thanked her, I thanked her for speaking favor over my life. God is good!

Thanks for reading my ramblings. Enjoy your day!
