I haven’t written a blog post in months and I apologize. Blogging was my first love and when I started a hundred years ago ( over ten years ago) it was the first avenue where I felt free enough speak my mind and express myself.
The internet was fairly brand new then, and people didn’t really understand, we didn’t dream of today’s world ten years ago. None of us dreamt of 2020 ever happening to us, heck when I was a little girl December 31, 1999 the night before the great big 2000. I didn’t even consider doing the math, that in 2020 I would be a full blown grown it seemed so far away.
With 2020 in full swing as the world watches her twirl, I wanted to create something that could help other people. I’m around a lot of technology everyday at any given time. We live in an automated, one size fits all, generic world. Just look around you everything and everyone is starting to look the same (no offense obviously as I am apart of this). Artificial Intelligence has its place in the world, some say it was designed to help us function better. Many argue it has made us dumber and and has alienated us from each other. I’ve heard all the arguments, everyone could be right and everyone could be wrong. I get asked many questions across all my social media platforms, about my lifestyle as it relates to eating and working out. I wanted to create a one stop shop that could answer all those questions and incorporate something I’m very passionate about at the same time.
Thus Good Body Lifestyle came to being. I can’t remember being this excited about a new project. Once I decided that this was what I wanted to do. I poured my entire being into this project. I worked y 9-5 during the day and pulled all nighters working on the wesite, the curriculum, the social media page and how I would brand it. I purchased the domain name and then created a simple black and white logo, I felt empowered it was a high I can’t explain.
But it wasn’t as simple as that and the entire month of August was a test for me, filled with delays and unforeseen complications. I remember shooting the main video that would go on the website, the video that explains the product and loosing all the footage and Images II had spent all day Saturday getting. For the rest of that Sunday I laid in bed just crying. Now I was going to have to wait until next weekend to shoot everything over because my hard drive was corroded. I shot it again and had audio issues and had to shoot the video a third time. So many things went wrong but I was determined Good Body Lifestyle would launch!!! I had to push the launch date back, but it worked out perfectly.
I launched Good Body Lifestyle on September 5, this particular day was a very traumatizing day for me just ten years ago and here I was bringing new life to a day that almost killed me. Won’t He do it, Amen! September ever since then has been a time of new beginnings for me and it has over the years morphed into, what I like to call my second wind. If I’m having a rough year September always comes along and saves the day, ironic if you know the back story from ten years ago.
It was a September when I went back to school to get my degree, it was a September when we relocated to California not knowing anyone here, it was a September when I stared working on the Lauren O Lauren Show project years ago. September has always come with a call of action for me.
I want to take you guys on this new journey with me as I develop and build Good Body lifestyle to it’s full potential. If you have not watched the video explaining everything Good Body lifestyle, it will be down below and check out the website too.
