Age of the Sunflower

First post since the big move to MD and I have A LOT to catch ya'll up on! First things first, New Website! I decided to change from LifeAsAsia to Sunflowers and Mint Water because that's just what I felt. I wanted a change and the name was different so I went with it.

Happy News: My nephew Ace was born August 10th and he is honestly the most perfect human on the planet. It's so crazy to think about my sister having a kid and me being an Aunt/ Godmother. He is looking to look to me for certain things in life and I want to be sure that I can deliver.

Work: I actually really like my job. I work in the pricing department for this freight forwarding company in Maryland and it's pretty cool. I get to see and learn new things everyday and the environment here is pretty solid for the most part. I am still on the path to starting my own business, just have to get the marketing aspect together and build up this portfolio before I can move forward. Blessed to have a job and still be able to work on my dreams on the side.

Home: Home is really good. After my lease ended, I opted to move in with my sister to save money for my move back to Atlanta and I'm actually loving it here. At first I thought it might be a little much but I get to see my nephew everyday and I'm around a really supportive group of people. I am excited to make that move back to Atlanta but I'm not rushing it. I'm focusing on the here and now and when August comes, I'll be ready to go.

Friendships: I think I needed this move. I needed to reset. I don't have a lot of friends but the ones I do have are solid. We've laughed and cried and really seen each others true colors. I appreciate the one's that are no longer in my life for all of the experiences and lessons I've gained from my time with them and I appreciate my new friends for working with me and being accepting and supportive.

Love: None, next. Lol but honestly I'm not ready and I know why. I really need to go to therapy and talk some things out to resolve some of the trauma from my past, or even acknowledge it and just talk about it one good time with a third party with no judgements or anything. I think once I do that, I'll be able to open up and let the light of love in.

Travel: Took a few fun trips this year. 2020 already has a lot on the books because I've just started buying one-way tickets and figuring things out when the time comes. Definitely sticking to that though.

Spirituality: Working on it. Definitely doing a lot more research because I have a lot of questions that I need answered and I’m starting to understand things more for sure. (STILL)

Overall: I'm a lot happier. I'm not angry anymore. I'm definitely a lot more sensitive than I was before. More things make me cry and I don't now what that's about. I am working on me heavily right now. Only focused on making sure I'm not just letting life pass me by so I'm just taking the time to stop and smell the Sunflowers <3

"I've decided that I'm a good person and that I deserve good things to happen to me- and therefore I've decided that I'm going to pamper myself as much as possible... I'm not gonna let other people make me feel guilty about what I'm doing. I'm not gonna take responsibility for where other people are, no matter who they are or how related they think they are to me."  -Abraham Hicks
