Good Morning everyone! After a 2 week hiatus, I am back in action! I decided to use the time off to reevaluate my life and the decisions I have made that brought me to this point. I realized that one of the things that was holding me back from being the best version of myself was that I was in a “situationship” that was going nowhere. Deep down, I knew this for a while but I was reluctant to let go completely out of fear. There was the fear that the pain of not seeing him anymore would be unbearable and that settling for pieces of him would be better than having nothing at all. These were all excuses holding me back and it took a friend’s advice for me to really get that. My friend pointed out to me that by not letting go of something that isn’t beneficial to you, you are also standing in the way of all the good that could come your way. I let this situation go on for too long and as a result, I was missing opportunities to meet others and to have growing thriving relationships that would lift me up instead of tear me down.
I found the courage to say that I deserve better and that I couldn’t keep settling no matter how strong my feelings were. It was difficult but learning how to let go was the push I needed to start fresh. I’ve decided to take a break from dating for a bit and focus on the things I need to do personally and professionally to get to where I need to be. The first thing I want to do is get on my vlogging grind more. I plan on doing 2-3 YouTube videos a week as well as a monthly web chat with the first one being in August. I have a few topics in mind so I might do a poll to see what you guys want to hear! I am also working on a “Confidence Interview Series” that will feature everyday women doing extraordinary things in the face of adversity. I get a lot of likes/comments on the quotes I post on Facebook and Instagram so I will be sure to keep those coming as well:)
It’s been 5 years since I started this site (under the name “The Angielala Experience”) and although I’ve changed a lot of things such as the name, and switched the focus from love, sex and relationships to confidence, the one thing that remains the same is that I want my experiences to empower women from all walks of life. Sharing the good, bad and all that is in between is not only a lesson to others but is also very therapeutic for me. Life is the greatest teacher and I want the life experiences to help in any way possible so that we all can be the best versions of ourselves and inspire great change in the world. I know that is it a daunting task but I’m learning that everything is a process and that greatness takes time. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and discouraged because I am not where I want to be, I feel determined and motivated because I have already come so far. It’s all about your mindset and I am going to make sure that I am thinking and acting positively so that I can attract that back to the world:)
Until tomorrow, make sure to love and live luxuriously!
