And Another One

Hey and welcome back to Takemetotheheights.com!

Before I even get into this week’s blog post, let me just say that I am eternally grateful to those who root for Takemetotheheights. Your patience and support to not only me but to this blog site mean so much to me and then some. In due time, I will show my gratitude to you guys. (Stay tuned!)

Above all else, it’s already February. Was’nt it just the New Year literally yesterday?! And who else needed a redo of January? (I definitely restarted my New Year this month so if you see me and I say Happy New Year to you, please say it back lol)

I am beginning this month by reaffirming my love affair with self-care and wellness. Lord knows how much I’ve taken a HUGE back seat in that department and I am currently paying the price for it.

These last few months were incredibly hard for me (where’s my box of tissues?)

There were literally moments where I no longer wanted to write anymore. But deep down I knew that wouldn’t be fair to myself or my readers. The trauma and grief I was dealing with (still am, unfortunately) was for sure trying to eat away at me. I had no desire to do much of anything. Yet going into this new month, I knew I needed to change my outlook on things and just appreciate life for what it truly is.

My mother would’ve wanted me to do so. She always pushed for me to really live my life to the fullest and not allow trials or tribulations to get the best of me.

Trauma can and will destroy you if you allow it to do so. I didn’t want to mourn the loss in such a detrimental manner any longer nor did I want to stop doing the things I truly love to do.

I ideally needed to rediscover my happiness and tap more into what truly makes me, well me. I am a lover of beauty, design, travel…basically any and everything that ideally exemplifies a Libra. (Libra gang, Moon in Aries to be exact)

And so, with that being said, I have a few things coming up this month….one which requires me to pack which I have yet to do (I literally pack the night before, I gotta do better) and the other….well I don’t want to give it away just yet….

But before I leave this week’s post, I just want to say I hope February and the months to come bring about more opportunities for collaboration, more coint for our pockets (prosperity out in this bish) more opportunities to truly take care of ourselves and to enjoy life while we are still blessed to do so.

Let me know in the comments section what you’re looking forward to/what you have in store and I will catch you guys in my next blog post!
