The truth is that taking the time to be still and reflective actually increases productivity and gives more joy to what you’re doing when it’s time to take action again.”
Maria Erving

Hey everyone 🙂

I really hope everyone had a great week. Although it’s been all ugly and rainy (which I personally hate) in the Bay Area, we need it. Perfect time to Netflix and chill or sleep L.O.L. This month went by so incredibly fast! I can’t believe that in three days it will be November 1st. I am excited, because that means Thanksgiving… Christmas… MY BIRTHDAY and then 2017. 2016 was such a joke to me like I honestly made some of my dumbest decisions and wasted a lot of time this year. However, I am determined to make bigger and better moves and lifestyle changes in 2017. It just has to be done in order to redeem myself.

October drained me physically and mentally. Therefore, I have decided to take a break as far as hanging out with people and dilly dallying. I have had so many sleepless nights, because of pointless things. I could see if I was being productive when I loose sleep, but no, most of the time losing sleep has came from getting lost in conversation and laughter. I am the kind of person who functions terribly without sleep. If I don’t get at least 7 hours, my day drags, I am not productive and I just feel crappy overall. That is why I will make it a #1 priority to get a full eight hours from now on. No point in being up if I’m not thinking of ways to get ahead in life. I will save the dilly dallying for the weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, tomorrow I leave for San Diego to celebrate Halloween! I am super excited. I have my Halloween costume, my hair is done and yesterday I went and got a much needed manicure and pedicure.  I have no idea what my weekend will be like. I know that I am going to a Halloween Party on Saturday night, but besides that I have no idea what else we are getting into. Regardless, I am happy to be getting out of the Bay Area for a couple days. When all you do is work and run around like a chicken with your head cut off, simply being in the same area becomes exhausting.

When I come back on Halloween, I will get my last dilly dallying out before I become focused. I haven’t been able to blog much, because I have been out and about constantly this month. Running from job to job… to party  to event… from store to house…can’t do it anymore. I hope that no one gets upset at me for curving them. I am just realizing that I cant do it all. As much as I am a people pleaser, I am going to have to slow my roll for my well being. Of course I will still be texting and accepting phone calls, but as far as driving and going places after working 8 or 12 hour days, that’s out.

November is the month to focus on me and relaxation. I made enough money this month to be able to take it easy in November. But oh best believe in December I am back to being a workaholic. Got to be able to buy gifts and of course turn up for my birthday. Everyone have a good weekend and be safe. I will be posting pictures from this weekend 🙂
