This week has been difficult for many reasons but the one that stands out is death. My boyfriend lost his sister to cancer this week and it made me realize that life is too short. I have not been taking my health seriously and since I have a family history of several ailments, I need to get serious! Diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, and anxiety/depression runs in my family. For years, I have wanted to lose weight BUT never really took it seriously. I was like YOLO (you only live once) let me go ahead and eat what I want. That has to stop.
FinCon 2019 was one word, AMAZING! Okay, that's the end of this article. I will see you next time. Just kidding! A FinCon Experience would not be complete without an accompanying blog post. It is like a wright of passage! There were so many things going on that I couldn't get to them all. But, I guess that brings me to my first tip:
FinCon starts tomorrow, but this post has nothing to do with money! Yesterday, I spent the day cherishing my loved ones, especially my son, because I know I am going to be away for a little bit. I only had one son yesterday, so it gave me time to provide one on one attention and affection. I am always working and hustling, and the good part is my kids see that. Also, the bad part is my kids see that. I need to slow down just a tad and find balance. My oldest has started thinking of his own business ideas. He wants to own a restaurant (for now), and I encourage that. I remember when I was his age, I too wanted to own a restaurant. I was told that being a chef was a man's occupation and that a woman wouldn't make it to the top. Yes, this is what I was told by a very close family member.
