Guys! The day is finally here! I just want to thank you all for the birthday wishes and for sticking around thus far. Your support has many times been much needed and always appreciated. Okay, it's actually like 25 things, but I convinced myself that .5 doesn't count. Even if it counts, just let me have my moment.
1.) Workout (at least) 3 times per week
1.5) Finally clean out my closet!!
2.) Work on the things that I have control over and can change, and not lose sleep over the things outside of my control.
3.) Humble myself
3.5) Continue to set ridiculously high expectations for myself and those around me.
4.) Take pride in what God has done and made.
5.) Actually believe in the power of prayer
6.) Say how I feel immediately
6.5) Stop worrying about what "they" will think or say
7.) Stop being a "hater" (I'll explain in a later post)
8.) Admit when I'm wrong and say sorry
8.5) Serve Beyonce "Sorry" vibez, immediately after I clapback
9.) See Beyonce Live (idk how that's gonna go)
10.) Pray about and act on setting the foundation for my dreams
11.) Say "No" to fear
11.5) Take more (legal) risk
12.) Continue to show him/her/them/it THE DOOR
13.) Genuinely care about certain things and people, not just for show.
14.) Actually help my mom make soup and stop saying "I'll be right back". (Ya'll know what I mean)
15.) Be direct
16.) Continue to be honest, but with a little modification (stop taking it too far)
17.) Speak about the beautiful things I see in someone else
18.) Be an encourager

20.) Put my womanism into action more often
20.5) Call out any and every "ism/phobia" within my power
21.) Let It Go
21.5) Not be ashamed of "taking it personally" or being "in my feelings". (It's cool to care, people. It's cool not to care as well)
22.) Work hard to prioritize and realize God's plan for my life
