Become the Fire.

Hello my little unicorns! Happy 2018! It only took me a week to get a blog post up, but I’m 💯% okay with it. Instead of focusing on blogging the first week, I took time to hang out with Sofia & Amir, sketch out some personal + business goals, and catch up with loved ones — and it was awesome! 

But I’m back to the real world now & jumping in headfirst. One of the things I love reading every year are y’alls ‘word of the year’ posts. It’s inspiring to see how many different paths we are all on and what we each want to focus on during the year.

When I started thinking about what I wanted out of this year, the word that kept coming to mind was growth. 

become the fire - that girl myra

Growth, as defined by, is: the act or process of growing; development; gradual increase; something that has grown or developed by or as if by a natural process.

And that is exactly what I want to see happen for myself this year. I want to see a development of myself both personally and professionally. This is the year I want to watch myself grow into a stronger and more confident version of a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, business owner, etc.

I want Sofia to look up to me and realize that growth comes from believing in yourself and working hard to make dreams come true. And I want to remind myself that even if things sometimes feel stagnant, we can use those times to grow ourselves.

As I was browsing Pinterest the other day (in search of a dinner recipe, lol), I came across this quote: Some women fear the fire. Some women simply become it. And it so effortlessly captured all the feelings I have in my heart for finding growth and becoming the fire in my own life this year.

So here’s to a new year, friends. A year of becoming the fire.

And, as always, if you’re ever in the need for a friend to talk to for encouragement, vent with about things that are out of your control, or just to send you ridiculous GIFs reminding you how amazing you are, I’m your girl. Let’s encourage each other to become the fire together this year!
