Hey y'all! When I woke up this morning I told myself that I was going to write a blog post. I had no idea what I wanted to write about, but I knew it needed to be done.
I've been totally neglecting this space! Not on purpose, I'm just figuring out how it can better serve my audience. If you've been rocking with me for some years, you've seen me grow in so many ways. And like most things in life, change is inevitable.
This space was once a natural hair platform, now it's kinda a landing page for my life.
If you follow me anywhere on the internet, you probably already know that I released a children's letter writing workbook. Eason Learning Academy, my preschool educational platform, has been doing so well. The community I'm building over there is so cool. If you haven't checked it out, well duh, you should!
In other news, my kids are growing up and I can't stop them! The youngest of the Eason crew is already 6 months! My youngest daughter is turning 2 in a few weeks. We're currently shopping around for an elementary school for my 5-year-old. And the teenager in knee deep in writing his college essay.
As usual, my mom guilt is on 100. I've literally spent the entire pandemic home with my kids and now that things are getting back to "normal", I'm feeling a little anxious. I don't miss the hustle of trying to get everyone out of the house and going to work. I don't miss rush hour traffic. I don't miss being away from my kids for 10 hours a day. But in a few months, that's going to be my life again. And to be completely honest, I don't want that life. I'd much rather stay home with my babies. These years go by so fast. And when I'm at work, I miss so much!
Sure I make money outside of my day job, but it's not enough. Hubby and I live in NYC with 4 kids, stuff is expensive. But a girl has dreams and I know my season is coming.
In other news, I became an Instacart shopper. I know...I stay doing the most!
If you don't know what Instacart is, you basically shop for people and deliver their items directly to them. I did it for one day and I quit.
In my brain, I was going to be an Instacart shopper at night, focus on my small business ventures and quit my day job. It didn't quite work out like I planned.
Don't get me wrong, I love shopping, but it was so stressful to shop for other people under time constraints. Instacart is not a ministry for me.
Now, lets talk about this summer body. It's definitely a body, and summer is approaching...but she is not swimsuit ready. But lets be clear, she will be in a swimsuit though. I'm actually looking forward to summer. I get a few weeks off work and I have some things planned.
The biggest thing I'm looking forward to is my trip to Ghana. Yes, your girl is going home to the motherland! I'll be chaperoning a service trip with a non-for-profit organization. The itinerary is amazing and the project we'll be working on is super dope! The only thing I'm struggling with is being away from my kids for an entire week. Pray for me y'all.
Other than the fact that I want to cut my hair again, that's all that's going on with me. How are you guys?
Let's chat about it.
