Recently a beloved friend asked me why I've been so quiet. Truth is, 2018 was rough on SO many fronts. It started with my mom having triple bypass heart surgery -- exactly a year ago this week. Watching her recovery, painful and slow as it turned out to be, was a lesson in mortality, health and life itself. My amazing father in law is battling cancer and it is such a cruel, unfair and unpredictable disease. Right now we are at their home to spend time with him. In the midst of our parents' health issues, I found myself losing my career spark. I lost desire for the things I used to do and places I used to want to go to. I lost all drive for being in the in crowd. I found myself losing the need to write and to share. And when I did write, I would second guess everything I had to say. There were moments where I felt a deep quiet wash over me, like my work could just disappear and not be missed. I wondered if I still wanted to BE Afrobella. I found myself considering what I would do if I walked away from this platform I've created for myself. I needed a break and I needed perspective. I needed a reminder of my original purpose, instead of picking myself apart. I needed to reframe my approach to my own life, and to the work I have given myself. It took me some time, but I finally feel like this will be a happy new year. No matter what. So I say to you, if you've also been through a time where you feel like you're flailing, this too shall pass. Keep breathing and press on. Seek the path in life that feels right to you. Love yourself through the process. 8 days into it, I'm finally here to say Happy New Year! Better late than never 💜
