Hidden Figures: A Must See!!

This weekend I had the opportunity to watch Hidden Figures. I remember seeing the previews for this movie a couple of months ago and I could not wait for it to come out. After hearing great reviews about it and actually watching it for myself, I can truly say that I was not disappointed. This movie had my emotions all over the place, happy, angry, sad, excited, to name a few. It’s rare (at least for me) for a movie to evoke that many emotions in a span of a couple of hours. It was simply amazing!

It was befitting for me to watch Hidden Figures on this past weekend because it, in conjunction to Martin Luther King Day, reminded me how far we have come. Reminds me of how hard our ancestors had to fight for us to have the opportunities we have today.  It was a reminder that we should continue to fight for these opportunities and never take for granted those blessings we currently have. Let’s never forget how far we have come and how far we have to go!

Did you miss me?!

Man, it has been a minute (well not literally a minute but you understand what I’m trying to say lol) since I’ve posted on this blog. And honestly, I have no valid excuse as to why I have not made an attempt to post. I told myself I would do better but the lazier side of me won.  So as I have said in the past…I will do better!!! 🙂

To begin, Happy New Year!! I hope your new year has started off amazingly well and I hope this year is good to you. I actually look forward to what this year will possibly bring. I can’t say my 2016 was a great year. Many lessons learned and I definitely had some growth opportunities. I am just grateful I made it through.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I typically don’t. Simply because I would make them and then by like March I would forget all about accomplishing them. Sad huh?! Nowadays I try to make conscious efforts to do/be better. Like learning a new fact daily. Or committing to reading an entire book (this can be hard for me because I sometimes have the attention span of a child). Helping a friend in need. Or calling my loved ones more often. At times reading my short term and long term goals (as a reminder of the things I need to do to achieve them). Or even re-visiting a dusty old vision board. For me, conscious reminders are just as important as setting goals. In my eyes, as long as you are making an attempt to be better today than you were yesterday, its one more step towards being a greater you.

So cheers to the new year! To new lessons, new growth opportunities, new reminders and new memories! 💋 😘
