My Legacy Will Not Be A Man...


My Legacy Will Not Be A Man...
My Legacy Will Not Be A Man... by Bougie Girl Apparel

My legacy will not be a man. How can it possibly be? Not when there are villages to feed, children to clothe, and music to create. The thought of settling for the drudgery of a simple  partnership holds no fascination for me much to the chagrin of my family and friends.
They tell me encouraging things such as:

"You are too amazing to stay single."
"Plenty of men are looking for someone like you"
"Why can't you just settle for a humdrum life with a man whom will take you granted and never acknowledge your contributions like I did?"

The problem isn't that I can't meet men. I meet plenty of men. Alas, many of them don't want to date me...they want to jump the fence of courtship altogether and walk me down the aisle after a short amount of time.
I prefer a leisurely courtship in which both parties get to know one another as they truly are, sans the unrealistic expectations and harmful projections.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
