Love, Success, and Clarity

Opening thoughts: My intentions for this year is centered on inviting more love, success, and clarity into my life. These days I find myself feeling very uncomfortable with complacency and every day routine. I want to be heavy on my empty mind and ‘law of attraction’ shit while putting in the work for the life I truly want and deserve..

Besides catching up on ‘The Walking Dead’- Season 10, ‘Black Lightning’- Season 4, the 3rd season of ‘Good Girls’, and watching old episodes of ‘My 600lb Life’, here are the new shows that have caught my attention.

New T.V. Shows

  1. Behind Her Eyes. A psychological thriller. “A single mother enters a world of twisted mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss while secretly befriending his mysterious wife.”- Netflix.
  2. Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel. “The notorious Cecil Hotel grows in infamy when guest Elisa Lam vanishes. From the creator of “The Ted Bundy Tapes,” a dive into crime’s darkest places.”- Netflix. I’m still trying to make sense of this one.

4. ‘The Introverts Guide to’ podcast, Episode 56- Introvert Super Powers. I am already aware of most of these super powers but one of the biggest take aways I got from this episode is not letting people write your narrative and never allow people to tell you who YOU are as a person.
