Hey everybody! How’s it going? Can you believe we are already almost finished with the month of January? It honestly blows my mind how fast time flies by. I hope your holidays were full of blessings and love.
I did it again though, another promise not yet fulfilled. I’m disappointed in myself. Enough for all of you and for me. HOWEVER, I’d like to catch you up on what’s been happening in the Kilpatrick household the past month.
On a leap of faith, I finally quit my job. Yep, you read that right. I quit my job – for a couple of reasons. The biggest reason was to focus on MY LAST YEAR OF COLLEGE. I’ve been in college since I graduated high school in 2013. Never took a gap year. Never tried just working. I went straight into school. Since then, my path has been a slippery, winding path to nowhere until recently. I decided on a major (after changing it about 6 times) and I’m sticking with it. I’d love to tell you what it is, but I’m keeping a secret until I get my diploma. Graduation in the Fall of 2020 – I’M COMIN’ FOR YA!
Another reason was to really pursue my passions outside of a job I was working that was simply to earn the paycheck. Believe it or not, I love writing (though my lack of promising to post and not posting would say otherwise). Like everyone always says, “when I was younger” I used to write all the time. I was once asked to join a young journalists conference in Washington D.C. though my fear held me back from taking such a great opportunity. This blog is a chance for me to share my story. And in many ways fulfill and share my passions with you in hopes that you’d find some inspiration here, or that you’d leave this page feeling loved and empowered.
I do have a lot to share with you all who might take the time to read this – may it be about food (my fav), interior design, fashion, or any and all things fun and creative. But I’ve been struggling. Remember earlier when I said “fear held me back”? Well, truth be told… that’s why I haven’t posted. I haven’t really liked the quality of content that I’ve wanted to post for fear that it wouldn’t be good enough or worthy enough for you to see it.
I want to squash that fear now. Crumple it up and throw it away. But I need help. What I’m hoping is that you can point me in the direction of some creative, artistic, realist folks that can help this page grow, evolve, and inspire others. Maybe that person is you? I want to talk with you. I believe this gives us both a chance to put our creative minds together and showcase what we’re passionate about.
Leave a comment on this post. Say what you’d like (but be nice – only good vibes here). Let me know what you’d like to see from this blog – what you want to learn more about, what you want to know about me, what ideas you have that you’d like to work on but never had the chance to. You can also click on the ‘Let’s Talk, Foodie’ tab and shoot me a message. I can’t wait to talk with you.
Also worthy of noting, I appreciate your patience. We all start somewhere. This is our beginning and I believe in its goodness. A lot to come. Until then, peace and love to you.
