Yes Lord Jesus let it be! Loose us from the bondage that is the 9-5 hustle! Umm…I mean, we are so grateful for our jobs and the income that they bring but Lord if you would be so kind…
This is Toya and I want to give you guys some insight as to what’s been going on with Tia and me. Tia has shared with you her frustration of wanting to be really passionate about something and discovering her purpose. I have shared my frustration of wanting to at times shave my head, move to India and go sit in meditation for a really, really, REALLY long time. In the meantime,we have been working hard lately behind the scenes to make BGLU all that we believe it can and is supposed to be. We think you all will enjoy the improvements that are around the corner. Bottom line: where we are as individuals just isn’t cutting it because we know there’s more. I often think that discontentment is a blessing. Sometimes you don’t move on something until you just can’t take it anymore.
We are really proud of BGLU and it’s only because of the feedback we get from our readers. We love receiving your emails and comments. Please keep them coming. I think when this blog first started we wanted to encourage women to just be happy being themselves. Now eight years later and with hundreds of readers, some who aren’t black or girls, we want to encourage everyone to be their best selves. We want to encourage this because this is something that we are striving to do ourselves.
With all that being said, we want to engage you on this journey with us as we strive to go from our day jobs to our dream jobs: running this blog together full time as well as fulfilling our dreams in other areas separately. I am taking a huge leap of faith and going into television. Tia is interested in music supervision and writing more. Starting this week, Tia and I are going to start reading Jon Acuff’s latest book “Quitter” and chronicle our journey as we strive to be in a whole different place next year. We are excited/scared to death/exasperated all at the same time. One of my favorite quotes is “Do it afraid”. As I said in a past post, Lord willing (I say that a lot now since Maurice died), I have three years until I am 40. I want those to be three big years that count.
If you are not quite where you want to be in life and want to make that transition from your day job to your dream job then we want you to join us. Who’s ready to be a quitter?
