Happy New Year loves. We are back at that time of the year where we assess what we dealt with last year what we want to change in the new year. For me, 2019 was the year of action and overall I’m am very happy with my 2019. I spent quite a bit of time at the end of 2019 contemplating what my word for 2020 would be. After so meditation, some major life changes that I notice didn’t alter my positive feelings, I came to the conclusion that my 2020 Word of the Year is CONFIDENCE.
Once I settled on confidence, I started wondering in what capacity I would explore confidence in 2020. I the plus-size community we always tend to attach the word confidence to our bodies; how we dress or what we wear etc. However, for me, confidence has absolutely nothing to do with my body or my self-esteem. At this point in my life on the brink of turning 30, my self-esteem walk is pretty much intact.
I am choosing to explore confidence in the capacity of how I will expand my network of friends & peers, how I will cultivate my creativity, how I create my content and ultimately how I post my content. Being completely honest with myself I didn’t post countless blog posts or Instagram posts or YouTube videos because I didn’t think people would like it or want to see it. I held myself back and put my own self in a creative box because I didn’t think certain things were my “lane”

Walking in my confidence in 2020 is about being completely fearless. Really working on myself to not put limitations on me. Pitch those brands that I want to work with. Stand 10 toes down in my rate for the work I do. Post that video even if it gets only 500 or 600 views on YouTube. One of my favorite YouTubers Maya of Shameless Maya has always so “Do You Boo Stay True, Be Shameless” to encourage us to go for it regardless of the outcome. And that is the literal embodiment of what I want my 2020 to be.
2020 is ushering a new decade for me in life as I approach 30 and I have ENDLESS examples of the amazing things to come in my 30’s. All of my friends have soared in their 30’s and I know I can most certainly do the same.
