Dear Magnolia, That’s Me

So it’s been quite some time since I’ve last given you guys a blog. But don’t you worry, I’m back with something that you all might love and enjoy reading. A few weeks back, (October 21st to be exact) I celebrated my birthday with my close friends who I truly consider family. This year’s birthday was truly a moment of self reflection and setting up new goals for myself. I realized last year for my 25th I didn’t get the opportunity to set any new goals. But this year, I’ve decided to dedicate my time to truly fulfilling some life long goals I’ve envisioned for myself.

So for this blog in particular, I purposely strayed away from the norm of what I post that’s fashion related. It was simply done this way because as I embarked onto this new chapter, I knew that things would no longer be the same for me and the goals I’ve envisioned for myself would be a true testament to that.

My main reasoning behind wanting to set some new goals is because as I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed that I would occasionally feel stagnant.  Feeling as if I wasn’t mentally growing or preparing myself for my future and what I want, was ideally a recipe for disaster. I knew that deep down something had to give and the only way things would change for me is if I allowed them to. I no longer wanted my personal fears and doubts to get the best of me.

Essentially, fulfilling said goals will not only take hardwork but most importantly resilience. I’ve had my fair share of challenges, even the week of my birthday, but I knew nothing or no one couldn’t get in the way of me celebrating. In hindsight, this is the takeaway I want you all to leave with. No matter what might come and try to hinder you from your dreams, never ever allow it to. I get it. It’s easier said than done. But it truly starts from within. If I never took that opportunity to really sit and self reflect, I would’ve never made that self realization on accomplishing my goals nor would I be typing out this blog for you. What you say and think also holds power. If you truly believe you’ll go far, you will. Never find yourself in a predicament where you don’t believe you’ll reach your dreams. If I constantly kept feeding myself negative thoughts, I would’ve never started Takemetotheheights.

With that being said, I want you all to take a moment for yourselves and truly self reflect. Now ask yourselves, have I taken the time to set some new goals? If not, I suggest you start making plans in doing so.

Before I close out this blog, I just wanted to take the time to thank those who have been commenting as well as reaching out to me via my instagram @nolie_______It definitely doesn’t go unnoticed and it’s my fuel to keep providing you guys with some dope and meaningful content. You are truly appreciated.

As always keep sending me your amazing and thoughtful comments, never EVER let anyone or anything deter you from reaching your heights and I’ll catch you guys in the next blog post.

With peace and love,
