Hello to all my followers. I want to start off by personally thanking each and everyone of you who read, like, and just show love on here. It really means a lot to me. 2020 proved to be very difficult for me. After numerous hospital trips, uncontrolled anxiety, family members having COVID, plus the loss of a family member, and being placed in a role I never thought I would be in, I seriously didn’t think I would get through it. But I did and came out more determined than ever to live life to the fullest.
I’ve always been told that whatever you do on January 1st is what you will be doing all year long. This year I took it seriously and did many firsts. I started my Etsy shop with my acrylic paintings called Kemetic Nigist Art (currently updating with more products), I’m now on TikTok under the same name, and I created a YouTube page where I will share the making of my paintings and MAYBE do a story time with some of my writings, and just going full steam ahead with business and life. It’s important to remember that life is short and everyday we have on this Earth is a blessing. So let’s not take it for granted. Set goals and crush them.
I would love to hear down below what some of you are doing to start off the new year. Tell me your goals, tell me what projects you have going on, or just say hey!!! Also check out the videos of some of my work and follow me on TikTok KemeticNigistArt along with my Etsy shop. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, head on over to Melanin Way Of Life and hit that follow button. I’ll be hosting a giveaway on there soon with one of my paintings. Peace, Love, and Light 💜.
While everyone is sitting at home going stir crazy because of Covid-19 shutting everything down, I’m happily in my home reading books, watching documentaries, and meditating while my children fill my home with the rowdiness that would normally be seen in the outside world. I have my balance. As an introvert, Here is where I feel less drained from being around a lot of people and less of a chance of having that awkward moment where a random person wants to have a conversation about something I know nothing about, but feel inclined to talk because I was raised with too much respect to come off as disrespectful to anyone.
Quarantine life is not so bad to me. I do it with ease because it pretty much my everyday life. Now there are moments where I’d like to go do the little things that I used to like go to Hobby Lobby, go to the movies, or even a random date night with my husband, but even that moment is fleeting. I always wonder if a time will come where I experience a shift that makes me want to be around groups of people and embrace random conversations, but even as I write this I cringe and hope it never happens.
