This blog is Part 2 of a 31 Day Challenge presented by @boho.berry on Instagram.
2 Where I Am Now
Mental/Learning/Personal Development – I have committed to reading one chapter of a book a day. I prefer to read non-fiction books. Most recently I finished John C. Maxwell’s The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. John C. Maxwell is one of my favorite writers.
Vocational/Career/Business – Right now I am the Executive Director of Donda’s House Inc. A non-profit organization based in Chicago that provides artist & youth development. I am very happy with my career and I have tremendous goals as it relates to growth for the next 3 – 5 years of operating.
Financial – As time goes on, I am learning more about personal finances and I am definitely not where I want to be quite yet. As an entrepreneur I don’t have a 401(k). For this reason, I have to spend the next ten years doing all that I can to make optimal financial choices to meet the goals that I have personally laid out for myself, and the collectively goals that my husband & I have laid out for our family.
Family – I have been very blessed in terms of my family. My sister-in-law recently moved back to Chicago and I am so happy! She’s like the little sister I always wanted. Bonus points is that she is moving and will be down the street from us.
Social – When things get crazy my social life is always the first thing that suffers. I’m looking forward to attending The Art of Rap Tour with one of my bestfriends and my sister on 7/22. I’ve been away from home more often than I’ve been home this summer, but when I get back home I’m planning to start meeting some of my friends for dinner and/or drinks on rooftops.
Physical – About 3 weeks ago, me and one of my friends started a journey to become healthier. I have already noticed the difference. Check out my before (about 4 weeks ago) and my after, earlier this week.

Spiritual – My favorite thing to do on Sundays is to watch Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. I also regularly read my bible. I’m thinking about figuring out a better system for studying my bible and other spiritual texts. If any of you guys have any ideas or rituals or practices, please let me know!
