I swear, I’m really not that interesting. I’ve had people constantly tell me how my life must be so exotic. I’m always picking up and traveling somewhere. I meet so many people and go to so many events. No, I really don’t.
I’m so low-key. I almost do nothing. Granted there are times that something fun comes along my way and I make time for it. I love concerts and festivals. I love attending art shows, and trying different things. “You’re always trying to do something artsy, like a play or something.” someone recently told me. I don’t see anything wrong with that. Instead of spending money on bottles at the club, I try to find activities that I can actually make memories around. That’s if I even go anywhere at all.
I have a found a routine that pretty much works for me. I try to be productive with anything artistic doing my down time. I try to create new content the best way I know how. Through what I go through. Have you ever heard the expression ” Write about what you know?” Well, hello there!
When I’m not at work, I’m pretty much laying in bed with my laptop on my bed tray. Writing, editing photographs from my week. I’ll dance in front of the mirror to wake me up. I’ll wash my hair and re-fresh my curly kinks for the next 2 days. I’ll attempt to clean ( I suck and hate cleaning), I prep for the next day.
If it’s the weekend, I know I’ll be spending time with my family. If you follow me on Snapchat (minxinx) You pretty much know how that goes. My family and I all gather around our living. We’ll talk, we’ll laugh, we’ll hover around Harlie (the baby), watch a movie and stuff our faces.
This is me. This is my life, and even though sometimes I wish my life was as exciting as traveling the world from one day to the next. I’m content with myself, with the people I share my time with, the value of it all. I still have my 9-5 job, Monday through Friday. I’m still in that rat race, trying to scrape up enough cheese to pay the bills. Life isn’t that grand. Life isn’t always what we think it is. If you’re constantly comparing your life to your neighbor’s social media, you will never be happy.
Try not to keep up with Jones’s. Be grateful for who you are, what you do, and your hustle will lead the way to even more interested stories.
