Cheers to New Beginnings

MacBook

My work MacBook arrived yesterday

I’ve been holding on to this news for the last two weeks, and now that my work laptop has arrived via FedEx, I feel like I can share my news with the world.

Yesterday was my last day working as a freelance writer for The Root.  As of today, I am a full time staff writer for The Root,  the site that took a chance and gave a platform to a highly opinionated hard news writer from the west. I am so grateful.

I will still be on the news desk at night, and I will still be bringing you my cutting commentary, but now I do it with a salary, benefits, and a job with a media organization that will only continue to grow.

Don’t ever let anyone tell you dreams don’t come true. They do, and sometimes they come with a brand new MacBook for you to write your success with.

I am living my dream

Every day I have these random moments of “Oh my god! I love my life!” and “I’m really out here living my dream!” It’s so surreal.

These moments both lift me up and keep me grounded. They are a constant reminder of how abundant the universe is, and how much more there is out there to grab hold of.

There is room and space for all of us. I am conscious of this, and it keeps me from worrying about what the next person is doing. My focus is on me, my goals, and my dreams, and that is where it should be.

I concentrate on my blessings and not the minor problems that pop up, and I never operate from a space of lack, because I know that as long as I am doing my part, the universe will continue to provide.

I wasn’t always in this space, so the personal growth is not lost on me.

I just keep reaching, ever higher, and ever evolving.
