Craving: a beach vacation with my little munchkin.Due to the pandemic our outings have been minimal I think she needs it more than I do.
Reading:The smart money woman by Arese Ugwu and the only regret I have is that I didn’t read it earlier.I haven’t read much this year but I can already tell this is my favorite read of the year.Its like someone challenged Arese to explain money as though they were explaining to a two year old.I love the simplicity with which she tackled all those complex money matters.It has  helped me concur my fear of investments and look deeper into my personal finances as well as my relationship with money as a whole.
Wanting: to have multiple sources of income. PeriodT.
Playing: dress up with Nuri. God really knew to bless me with a little girl. Let me enjoy it before she has a style of her own or is too cool for me.

Wasting: no time second guessing myself. I have done that long enough.Time to get out of my head!
Creating: more fashion videos for Instagram reels/tiktok and I am surprised at how much fun I am having.
Wishing: for a  COVID 19 cure/vaccine something!

Knowing: that I need to get back to the gym sooner that quarantine weight is showing off and won’t let a girl thrive!
