Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I made a post on here. To be honest my life has been pretty crazy. I am living a completely different life than I was 6 months, a year, and even two years ago. I am 100% self employed now (woot woot!), still a single mom and it's been a bit tricky balancing being the CEO, mom, part-time caregiver to my my mom who has become very ill, while also finding the time to stay on the dream chase. Sorry for my absence. I may have been MIA on this site, but I was making things happen in my life and bettering myself. One of the ways I did that last year that I'm very proud of was by going to the gym on a consistent basis. I started back in April. Overall I lost about 20 pounds and saw muscle definition that I had never seen in my life! I kept it off until about November and got a bit complacent and started eating more than I was working out (lol). And the quality of the food wasn't conducive to losing weight or eating healthy. Because of this I fell off a bit but I'm trying to extend myself grace and finally today I went back to the gym for the first time in about 2 weeks.
I also started becoming pretty active on Tik Tok, YouTube and Instagram. I even had a video "go viral" on Tik Tok and reach over 250K views in a week! It was pretty exciting but also a bit disappointing because there wasn't as much engagement on the video as I thought there would be. I'm talking about this video. Anyway, I had been on a roll until that video was put out and then I kind of got deflated. But once I started posting more videos I kind of forgot about that video and started to feel better. I pretty much only really care about the last video I posted, so if I keep posting new videos I won't care so much about any one video. I definitely plan to be more active this year. Here's a video I posted on both Tik Tok and YouTube. It's a cover of SZA's "Kill Bill" song from her album SOS. I did a little rewrite haha I think it's cute.
If you don't follow me on any social media, you can get caught up on what I've been up to by going to any social media platform (YouTube, IG, TikTok, Facebook) and just type in @thisisshari and I should come up!
Well, I just wanted to come and say hello since it's been a while since I posted. You can expect to see me actually doing what I intended to do with this blog, which is documenting my dream chase. Documenting the journey of putting out music, recording, behind the scenes footage, etc. I'm still trying to understand exactly how I am supposed to impact people and what I stand for, but I am doing the work to understand. Well, it's now 11:38pm and my eyes are so heavy because I went to the gym at 6am this morning! I'm going to call it a blog and plan to see you the next time I post! I hope your 2023 is off to an amazing start and that this year you will achieve all of your hearts desires!
