New year, new me

 

 

I think by now I’ve established that I’m no tough, kickass chick.
We all agree on that, right?
So, with 2018 around the corner, I’m making plans to add a little extra sumthin’ shake that up 2018.

 I’m writing this post at 12:30 am when I know full and well, I have to be up 4 hours.
I can’t turn my brain off.

This past couple months I’ve been making  a little lot of the big life decisions (of which you will be learning soon), and though I’m excited, I’m equally, if not more, nervous.
With change comes uncertainty, and though I’d like to believe otherwise, I’m not a fortune teller. I can’t look into a crystal ball and know what I’m doing will work out exactly how I want.

There are a lot of answers I don’t have, and that’s what’s literally keeping me up at night. Here’s what I do have, though: people who love me. People who are rooting for me and want me to do well. People who will give me whatever they can so that I accomplish whatever lofty goals I’ve set for myself.

I’m loved, and knowing this gives me the confidence to keep going even when I don’t have the answers and all I want to do is take a nap. Love is an absolutely powerful thing.

My mom, my sisters, my cousins, my aunts/ uncles, my friends—they have all supported me in ways I don’t think they even understand. I’m only here existing, not as a blogger, but as a human, because of all the people who have ever loved me. Please, please, please know that if you’re reading this, you have the power to love that much and change someone’s world. Don’t be afraid to.

 

 

Love,

Faduma
