3 Career Transition Tips

career transition tips

Two weeks ago, I started a new gig, 401 days since I left my last corporate position. Yes, I counted.

It feels good to be back in a corporate setting. Being among peers my age for the first time is certainly welcomed. I have two computer screens, which, the non-techie in me is amazed by. I’m doing much of what I’m skilled at, social media, and learning new techniques along the way.

Atlanta Ballet’s Romeo et Juliette: Girls Night Out

I’m on a ballet high, y’all. Please, don’t kill my vibe. Friday night, I attended a preview of the Atlanta Ballet‘s newest production: Romeo et Juliette by Jean-Christophe Maillot. I’ve never sat in on a rehearsal before so I felt pretty privileged to be in the presence of so many amazing dancers. Based on what I saw, truly, this will be an event you do not want to miss.

I took these shots in December, thinking I was going to write something about restarting for the New Year. That’s not really what I want to write about at all. I want to talk about winning.

Vision Board: Even though…I Am

The New Year always presents societal pressures to have your entire existence figured out by end of day one. What a daunting task. And yet, if we do not plan, we inevitably plan to fail. So I took a step in the direction of what some people believe will lead to success.

Happy 5th Birthday, Lucy’s Pearls!

Lucy's Pearls 5th Birthday

I can’t believe five years on this blog has finally come. If I’m honest, I thought about closing up shop and ending this space at the end of 2014. Blogging is work. But when I look back to my first real post, I remember how excited I was to start a new journey. That, and you, remind me of what I’ve started and why I can’t let go just yet.

2014: The Mighty Long Ride

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

Exactly one year ago, I quit my job at a law firm without a plan. All I knew was that I wanted a more fulfilling life. I was excited to start a new chapter in my life although I had no idea what that life would resemble. Right now at this very moment, all I can say is THANK YOU to the Most High for giving me strength. It was a challenging year and I am better for it.

And It’s Not Even My Birthday: COCOTIQUE

My good friend Kim reached out to me about checking out the December box from COCOTIQUE. What is that, you ask? It’s an amazing company providing a monthly beauty subscription service to women of color. This box contains all things hair, skin, makeup, nails and even fragrances. It is what they call the “Ultimate Beauty Arsenal”. I am rarely, if ever, surprised. But when I finally opened the box, I couldn’t believe what was inside.

Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker

On Christmas Eve, I had the opportunity to see Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker. Although I’ve seen this show over five years ago, this particular production was like none other. There is only one word I can think of to describe the show and that is MAGICAL.
