Let's Get It

Rakiya George

It's a New Year. More Goals to Accomplish. 

I didn't want to post a cliche "New Year, New Me" post; that's tired. I'm taking on the growth from last year, and simply evolving and learning every step of the way. For once, I can definitely say that I've never been more excited for what this year has to offer. Like, I actually smile at the thought of the things I want to get done. When I hit my milestones, the euphoria that will take over will be simply satisfying.

My credo. 

My credo. 

Everyone knows that I'm a planner, however, I adore spontaneity. This year. I want to wow myself with my choices, and to go with the flow. If something doesn't work out, it isn't the end of the world; just keep going. Everyday, wake up with a purpose; whether it's big or small. Take in every ounce of opportunity, because you never know where it will lead you. 

I started the year off pretty reserved, I definitely appreciate those of you that were asking when my next post would drop; you guys literally make my heart smile. I'm continuing to trust my process, so if I feel as though a post isn't ready, or if there isn't a message being delivered, I will not update my site. 

Not to say that I was in a funk, but I was extremely busy; I was waiting for the universe to calm itself down before I included myself in anything. Posts moving forward will have insightful messages, but will begin to feature my spontaneous trips, collaborations and new discoveries. I'm as personable as possible, but it's time for more range; I think you guys will really enjoy it. 

Wake. Up. Girl. 

Wake. Up. Girl. 

Back to my brief funk, for the first week of the year, I woke up everyday questioning my goal. What was getting done? Am I falling off? What the hell am I doing? I just had to take a quick mental break to gather myself together and makes these moves. (Self care at its finest.) I'm a very indecisive person, and me not posting anything didn't stress me out, it just pushed me to get shit done, as time waits for no one, and there are opportunities to reach for. 

I spent the first Saturday of the year in the city, being adventurous with my best friend. We stood in the freezing cold for possibly 45 minutes to view the Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton Exhibition. IT. GAVE. ME. LIFE. This fashion thing isn't an issue for me, so learning about it is one of my favorite past times. The journey that this brand has been on is truly inspiring and the entire day, I felt uplifted and proud of how far I've come, because you never know what will happen next. (The future really excites me, it's slightly excessive.)

Writing is my first love, and I will continue to do so as long as possible. Venturing off into different things of course is needed, but there is no other love, like your first love and that will never change. The exhibit had a display of a writing trunk, and I was in complete awe; I could stare at it all day and just picture myself using it and creating. The little moments like that are what make me proud of my craft.

Besides the exhibit being absolutely stunning, I got to connect with my best friend as well as vibe with a friend that he brought along. The connection was instant! We all feel like this year is the year to be great; to do something iconic. 

There isn't a worried bone in my body for what is yet to come, and again, I get excited from the thought of it. This opening piece for the New Year was to merely reiterate what I've already been saying on my platform. Trust Your Path and remain confident. Take a break if needed, but never forget about your goal. If you need a reminder, write it down, or set it up on your phone. Have something tangible to remind yourself that at the end of the day, you have something to accomplish.

Let's have a super productive year. Claim it!
