Relax, Reflect + Refuel

Time to relax, reflect and refuel another year is ending. This year has been a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. I survived it all! I have truly been on path of uncertainty and enlightenment for all of 2015.

Let's jump into the list of my 2015 roller coaster ride.

THE LOWS- I discovered I really hate math and that hasn't changed since High School. It's not that I'm not good at, It makes my brain hurt and that's not cool.

I also experienced the passing of loved ones who were #1 fans of my fanclub. They supported me, encouraged me and love me more than I could have ever known. I'm still hurting but they are with me on spirit cheering me on everyday.

My low list is fairly short and I am thankful and grateful for that. They had huge impacts in life this year. The power it had over me was overwhelming but it made me stronger. I need all of my new gained strength for all the ass kicking I will be doing in 2016!

THE HIGHS- Oh the highs are good! I became an international designer! I designed a scarf for Fashionable which they turned into a collection of three scarves for spring 2015. My Frehiwot scarf was the featured scarf for the Fashionable's 2015 Mother's day campaign! 

I had a blast at ALT Summit 2015 as a speaker for the 2nd time! I love going to this conference every year. I walk away so inspired and pumped for the new year.

I also had the pleasure to speak at the IDSA Atlanta Fight in 5 speaker series. Really cool designers from multiple disciplines talking about design. My kind of night!

I started a new job! The day after I flew back to Atlanta form ALT Summit I was offered my new job. My goal for 2015 was to live my life with no fear. Taking this job in the non profit world was a huge leap of faith. I jumped as high as I could and join a team of brilliantly talented people.

My high list from 2015 kept me happy, excited, inspired, busy, stressed, exhilarated and exhausted. All of it was good for me. I grew so much in 2015.

It's time to relax, reflect and refuel for 2016. Taking time to relax is a must. Taking a moment to reflect on my life is important and I plan to work it into my schedule. Refeul, refuel, and refuel. It takes a lot of energy to be me so I need to stop and refuel in 2016. That's all. See ya in 2016!
