At midnight on December 19, 2017, I ate a vegan cupcake and drank a glass of champagne. I did so as a toast to 34 years of age this year, and cheers to tons of wisdom and success! I took a week off from work to figure out my life and how I plan to take over the world by the time I turn 35. That’s exactly one year from now!
I have since resumed my Oprah Winfrey plan because I know I’m going to be great!
Age 33 was rough. I grew the most at 33, overcame betrayal, played a serious game of dodging sabotage, freed myself from the ugly residue of leftover romantic relationships and I abstained from sex for a whole year. (Insert prayer: Dear God, just let me be great while my future husband chooses me!)
I developed a serious poker face, and I’ve learned to be strategic. I shed a lot of tears, experienced some hair loss and even got rid of relationships that needed to come to an end. As I reflect back on what I accomplished, it was a hell of a lot! It was the year of discipline, observation, strategy and listening.
And Hell Yes, I AM WOKE!
I have uncertainties about what will take place in 2018 or where I will be arriving nothing short of greatness. I never really planned out what I would be doing by age 34, nor did I really envision what I would be doing at 30 years old. OK, I did plan on having a cool-ass condo at 30 overlooking Lake Michigan and a career as an award-winning national news anchor or reporter.
As I sit and eat my yummy vegan (leftover) cupcake and work on my master plan for 2018, I do know:
- I will continue tell the world there is #GoodInEnglewood
- I will continue to have a passion for service
- Everyone will want to hire The Baldwin Media Group & Associates
- I will remain a Vegan Boss Babe
- I have learned forgiveness and to react less
- I will Read More
- I will Read More
- I learn to sympathize for those who have ill feelings
- I’m destined for #Greater
Some memorable moments in 2017:
I’m looking forward and not backwards and ready to go harder than ever at 34 in 2018.
I raise my glass to 2018! This 34 year old #Millennial #Vegan #Englewoodian is ready to conquer the world and won’t stop until I’m there.
Never stop believing in the #GoodInEnglewood!
