It was another year I never saw coming in all the best ways. I learned almost as much about TikTok as I did about myself. Social media has a funny way of stripping you down to your core and forcing you way outside of your comfort zone.
Y'all have probably heard me say this before, but I truly find power in words and manifestations that I speak into myself and my life. I sit down with a notebook and my thoughts at the end of the year and set my goals for the coming year. As I do that, I choose a word that I believe fully captures my goals and dreams for myself. I ask myself, "Where do you want to be this time next year?" and find a word that speaks it into existence.
My word for 2021 was FORWARD, and there couldn't have been a better way to describe my year. So many of my dreams became a reality, my voice was given a platform and our work was shared in a way that we never imagined, helping so many people.
