The List

There are so many things I want to work on in this my 35th year. I decided to come up with a list of things I will and will not be doing as a 35 year old Black woman. I want so many things out of life. But, I know the only way to get them is to work on this list of things. I am my own worst enemy. This is my life and I deserve the world so I'm going to get it. By any means necessary. Get into my list.

  1. Talking down to myself. 
  2. Second guessing myself.
  3. No more word vomit. 
  4. I'll no longer feel sorry for myself about one specific thing.
  5. I won't compare my life/story to any other person.
  6. I won't stay up late at night contemplating the universe.
