Level Up. [2020]

So last year, I feel like you and I, dear reader, entered a new phase of realness on This Square Peg. This is a lifestyle blog, yes, and we discussed various aspects of my life, including openly sharing with you that 2019 mostly stunk. I initially wondered if these were things I even wanted to share. It’s not easy to be vulnerable, no, but it’s way harder when you have tons of eyes reading about your experience. Nevertheless, I’ve always been a fan of 1) catharsis; 2) encouragement and empowerment; and 3) helping people. If one iota of this life and working through those tough times helped anyone with any of those three things (even if sharing simply meant bringing some clarity and understanding to those who know me beyond this blog), then I’m happy and proud. In that vein, I’m here to announce that not much will change with TSP in this brand new year…

Except: we are leveling up. levelup

I will continue to remain real, vulnerable, and open with you. Highlights. Lowlights. Life life life. But as much as I love my privacy, I plan on sharing some tings with you this year and I don’t intend on holding back. I’ll still be private–don’t get it twisted; I have to protect my government name–but the process of sharing will be wider. Because at the end of the day, I need you to be good with you. And if I can add a ‘lil something to that beautiful end result by sharing tidbits of me, then we shall have all of that. Quite honestly, too, I need to continue to be good with me. That involves talking/writing through this journey. So, we’re in this together, dear reader.

My first share of 2020: I have a secret wedding board on Pinterest. It has categories. It shall remain secret because my inner 11 year-old doesn’t like folks taking her ideas. {shrug}

Happy 2020. How do you plan on leveling up this year?

  1. 🙌🏾 It’s been a minute since I slid over here (I’m behind on every blog I follow 😩) but I’m glad I did today! Looking forward to the level-up! As for me, same. All year I’ve been telling myself to “get it together” as far as my brand is concerned and I’ve been working towards that for a few months, not waiting for 2020. I just need to buckle down & be consistent. Pray for ya girl! 😬

  2. I have a secret Pinterest wedding board, too! I haven’t updated it in AGES, but it’s there. It’s aptly (and cheesily) named, “…and they lived happily ever after.”

    I’m so glad you were brave enough to share your experiences of 2019 with us, painful and revealing as they were. I know you definitely helped me with some of your shares.

    As for me… how do I plan on leveling up in 2020? I just have one mantra that I’ll keep repeating to myself until it actually sinks in:

    I am enough.

    I think if I can learn to believe that, I’ll be good.

    1. Here’s to secret Pinterest boards and the names we give them. Lol.

      Thank you for those kind words. 💜💜

      And you are enough. So enough that the word isn’t enough to describe it. I believe that wholeheartedly. With you on this journey.
