This post is lonnnnnnggggggg overdue. But before I delve any deeper into tonight’s blog post, let me just take this time in apologizing for any confusion I have caused with any emails you guys have received about published blog posts. I’ll be all the way honest:

I was not all the way confident about those posts and I found myself going back making changes here and there to them. For now, those posts will be kept on the back burner as I turn my attention to something a bit more important.

Now I know it has become quite the norm for me to not write as often as I had hoped but I knew the comeback would ideally be all the worthwhile. Tonight, I’m turning my attention to my standstill.

This go-round, my standstill was and is my moment in really listening to what I truly need and essentially blocking out the things, people etc..that no longer serve me. This time frame is vital in the sense where it has allowed me to really zero in on what I truly need to focus on and what really pushes me for the better.

I can recall a time where my standstill was more so used as a defense mechanism/an excuse to no longer do the things that I love or even set precedence on the things that hold value in my life.

Moving further not just for the summer but in my adult life, I wholeheartedly knew that approaching this particular season would force me to really take ownership of all that I am and all that I can deliver. #Period

For anyone who is currently going through his or her own standstill, just bear in mind the following:

You have the absolute right to a standstill. Not everyone will understand why and that’s okay, just remember why you decided to do so and what you plan on doing after.

This goes back to your why. Reflect on what caused (or what’s currently causing you to have) your standstill. Know that you truly hold the power to move beyond any doubts or fears you might have.

Lastly, your comeback will speak volumes for you! As often as I’ve taken my moments to reflect and essentially have a standstill, I knew the aftermath of it all would be monumental. Just know you have to put the work in to show and prove and never forget why you started in the first place.

Before I end tonight’s post, I want to take this time in truly thanking those who visit Takemetotheheights.com.It never goes unnoticed and I will forever be filled with gratitude because of it.

Thank you
