What to Expect When You're Expecting (not talking pregnancy)

Ahhhhhhh.....freaking expectations! I have a strong love/hate relationship with expectations. I have expectations for certain things in my life....standing up for what is right and against what is wrong, eating high quality fried chicken (I don't eat it often so when I do...ya know, it needs to be good), dating someone I have to look way up at (I like tall joints), and of course, achieving my goals. I love setting certain expectations of myself and of the important people in my life (kinda....will get to this on a later post). On the flip side, I hate setting expectations because the road to meeting them isn't always the route I had in mind when I set those expectations.

It's like when I am in a relationship, I have expectations of my partner in my head and I kind of just wish he would meet all of those expectations without me having to ever express them. Trust me though, at thirty two years of age, I know you have to express expectations in almost all relationships at some point.

Anyway, back to what I was getting at, I love having expectations because of that end result and that feeling you get once you have achieved your goals, but I hate having them as well because it makes me think about the direct route to achieving those goals-----when there is never really a set route and a part of me is a free spirit and my route always ends up having twists and turns at some point.

My point in all of this is to let you know what to expect from this blog. Now that I think about it, maybe I took the long route to getting to this point. Expect randomness because I am a random ass person. Expect to get to know me. Expect me to drop some gems (Ha!---but I'm serious). Expect tons of dope posts about make-up and skincare (beauty junkie over here). Expect funny and sometimes serious stories about motherhood and toddler woes. Most of all, expect nothing and expect everything.

Some regular posts that I am looking forward to sharing with you guys are....

The Affordable Beat: make-up looks all done with low-cost/drugstore products

Beauty Faves: reviews of my favorite beauty and skincare products

Health/Fitness: updates on my personal fitness & health journey

Everything else will pretty much be random----just like me!

One more thing guys---look out for my next blog post about self-reflection because I love reflecting on shit! Only right it be my first real post.
