So I started writing this post with a different title: “Reinvent Yourself.” It had been sitting in my drafts for weeks much like so many other posts in my draft page. I knew what I wanted to write but the title didn’t sit well with me. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it but one day I thought, ‘”I’m readjusting,” and all the pieces fell into place.

To readjust means to adapt to a changed environment or situation. A lot of life has to do with compromise and adjusting. It made sense that ‘readjust’ worked at the end of the day because if I had stuck to the title, “Reinvent Yourself,” I’d be talking about a whole different thing in this post.

I haven’t posted anything (I like) on Millennial Haven for over a month now and trying to keep up with posting has gotten progressively worse. It’s not for lack of ideas or inspiration, trust me I have so many post ideas in my draft folder it’s ridiculous. Now I can give an excuse like I’m really busy with summer school, I’m going through a lot in my life, I’m focusing on other aspects of my writing, all of which are true. But I won’t because that’s not what we’re talking about today.

Every Monday?

HEY guys! Look I know I said I’d post every Monday but as school has started and well vacation is over, I’ve found that more difficult to do. So here’s my proposal, the days I post will remain Monday and I PROMISE to only skip two post weeks if needed. Please hold me accountable for any missed posts. You can reach me on my Instagram and Twitter: @millennialhaven. Please don’t hate me guys, I’m REALLY trying here. I work hard to make sure my posts are clear, understandable and beneficial, otherwise, I would just throw out any random post today. But I won’t because you guys deserve quality content and I strive to give you that.  I’ll make sure to do better next week. Anyway, thanks for supporting me always, and happy reading!

+Also happy new month/valentines day. Tidbit: my birthday is valentines day


Did I reach my 2017 goal?


At the beginning of 2017, I had a goal. It was to have a New Mindset. Towards the end of the year, I found myself asking, have I achieved this goal?

The answer is yes. I reached my 2017 goal and so much more. Opening my mind to new things and new people was the bare minimum and I managed to surpass that. I not only understand people around me, concepts, and ideologies better, I now understand myself better than I ever have.

I have received insight on things that I never thought I would before. Things that I never thought I could understand or appreciate, I now do.

This year I started out basically testing my faith but now I’ve started a Bible Study Group.

I started the year unsure of where my career was going but here I am now. My career path is clearer & brighter than it has ever been.

I started this year very uncomfortable in my skin but today I’m more confident than ever in myself and the way I look.

This year was without question a year of tests and trials. I wouldn’t say I passed them all. In fact, my average would probably be a C minus. What I can say is that I learned something from every single challenge I had to go through this year.

Having a New Mindset allowed me to explore the world and my surroundings in a way I never had before. It allowed me to shed an old, damaging mentality and take on a new, diverse and renewing one. Having a New Mindset opened my eyes to a life I was living but not appreciating simply because I was seeing it through the wrong lens. My New Year’s goal helped me make my 2017 a year I’m proud to have lived through.

So what’s in store for 2018?

A new post every Monday

Hey guys! It’s been MONTHS since my last post! I’ve been managing two other blogs for school and I sort of couldn’t keep up with posting here. After a while, I lost my motivation and forgot why I even started posting here in the first place.

Honestly, it was a hard few months with school, work, and doctor’s visits. It’s no wonder depression set in. The past few months were stressful, frustrating, and terrifying, but they were also much more than that. There were streaks of happiness here and there, I grew closer to my friends and my faith. I learned life lessons that I don’t think I could’ve ever learned if I didn’t go through what I did. So when I look back I smile and that’s really what I’m thankful for; that even through all that I can still take the time to count my blessings.

Since I started this blog I have been inconsistent and all over the place because I was still trying to find out how to balance it with everything else going on in my life. Regardless of that, the truth remains that this blog is very important to me for multiple reasons. So, I am making a promise to myself and to my readers that I will post every Monday from here on out without fail and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure I keep that promise.

For you guys that have been with me since the literal inception of Millennial Haven when it truly looked like a hot mess, thank you. Thank you for supporting me and this blog. Thank you to some of you that checked up on me. Thank you for following, and I will most definitely see you in the next one (which will be posted up later today).

Just living my life

Hey guys! It’s been a couple weeks since my last post and no, nothing’s wrong, hold the press, all is well and good in the life of this millennial and I just wanted to put our mind at rest.

It’s summer, my family is around and I’m super busy-something that is both a blessing and a curse. All in all, I’m just living my life attentively and I hope you are too. I’ve also decided to take the month off and so I guess, see you guys in September!
