Queen of Quarantine – A Quickie
The Quarantine has affected my life in more ways than one. You would think that being on lockdown there’s not much that can happen. Not when you’re a QUEEN!!! I was busier in the past few months than I’ve been all year! How did I do that?
Well. Being off of work allowed me ALOT ( a lot) of free time. Still being compensated allowed me to do a Whole LOT! The first few weeks of Quarantine my creative juices were flowing, I taught myself how to master eye shadow looks. I surprised myself. A day didn’t go by that I didn’t record and post a new makeup look, I would also feature a new product from a local small business ( BUY BLACK)!! I mastered making my shirts and a strategy that worked me – there was a lot of trial error BUT we are almost smooth sailing…. almost.
I developed new outlines for upcoming projects, I traveled.. yes…Traveled. Because while businesses were closed- mine was not, and everyone around me continued to work . What a better time then some road trips! I went to several major cities, connected with fellow creatives, interviewed business owners, executed photoshoots, recorded songs and directed videos! And that’s just a hint!
But the most important thing that happened during Quarantine was falling in love with myself again. The simple self. Not running around trying to burry emotions, not having a heavy work load, not being stressed about the uncontrollables & finally grieving my grandmother.
I didn’t have the distractions of the outside world- I had myself.
I also decided to leave my longtime partner of 6 years. Because I deserve to be loved the way I want to be loved ( I’ll write about that) …
long story short… I’m happy and satisfied . Deep down I still have a little bit of anxiety about the unknown. But all in all- my journey to happiness is still
Going as planned .
