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.
