Where to Begin?

"The Dreaded 1st Blog Post"

April 4, 2019

I always knew I wanted to start a blog. For as long as I can remember I have been a "talker"; as my teachers used to put it. I was the kid with a report card that was both amazing and terrible all at the same time. I'm sure you just went "huh?", but let me explain. I will never forget report card after report card having my parents so proud of me for the straight A's I would have across the board and then shortly after receiving "the death stare" from my mom after looking at the conduct section. You know the stare.... the one that mothers; especially black mothers give; that says both "I'm disappointed in you" and "girl I will snatch your soul from your body if you don't stop" all in one. It was not uncommon for me to have a couple of N's and U's in the conduct section for a few classes. Often times the N's and U's were followed by a comment saying "won't stop talking". I'm sure its been a long time since we have all received report cards so here is the conduct chart as a reminder:

E = Excellent

S = Satisfactory

N = Needs Improvement

U = Unsatisfactory

I just couldn't shut up. While I have toned down my talking over the years and gotten better at learning the art of knowing when to talk and when not to (still working on it though lol) this has been both a gift and a curse of mine throughout my life. So here I am starting a blog. The one place I will never have to shut up. Lmao. 


For years this has been something I wanted to do, and if I could have snapped my fingers and brought it to life I would have. But.... finally I begin now. It's never too late right? 


I hope that Nicki Inspired becomes a place where we all can be ourselves, learn new things, get inspired and motivated to push outside of our comfort zones. A place where you come to find new ways to become a better you, evolve, build your empire, crush goals, get the occasional laugh and find the spark that lights your fire. Most of all I hope to be the virtual best friend that challenges you to better yourself as we grow on this journey called life together.




*This should probably the place where I should stop and do some cute little sign off; but as I mention before I talk too much.

Wow. That wasn't so bad. I can't lie y'all when I sat down trying to think about what my 1st blog post would say I found it intimidating. I kept thinking this is the 1st, the VERY 1st, numero uno, and it has to be just right, I have to open with some epic bang....but what will I say, what will I talk about, what tone do I want to set, what are the "right words"? And then I thought....JUST TALK girl.


With that being said, Let's talk!
