Wednesday, March 7th, 2018, I celebrated the two year anniversary of LoveMegXo.
In 2016, after over a decade of creating poetry & spoken word, and also freelance business & creative writing as MDWORDZ; God expanded my creativity.
While I still desired to write, I also desired to draw, paint, do makeup, craft, create, advise/teach…Oh! And spread love, light, wisdom, art, beauty, and soul.
Two years ago, I remember feeling overwhelmed with the process of rebranding. So overwhelmed, I almost forgot to launch on my designated launch date (kinda like how I forgot to actually celebrate my second year operating on the actual anniversary date). I almost gave up. So glad I didn’t.
A year ago, I remember reflecting on my first year of business and feeling proud of my growth & expansion as a creative, thankful to God for my handful of loyal supporters; but also mildly discouraged because I didn’t accomplish every goal I set and I knew I could do better. I almost gave up. So glad I didn’t.
2017 is definitely a year that I will never forget. God wrecked my life (for my good); He stretched me, taught me, and tested me in ways I never imagined. I’m forever indebted.
Today, as I reflect on the entire two years, I can honestly say that as I grow, my business grows. Everything I create is created with love. Every message I post is signed with love. Every intention is to give God glory, remind some & introduce others to Him, and make Him proud to have entrusted me with His gifts/talents.
This year, I created more, helped more, learned more, had a painting get over 12K views, practically lived in Hobby Lobby, shipped paintings across the country, and landed two PR affiliations. So glad I didn’t give up.
I thank God for choosing me, first. For blessing this venture, second. And third, but very important — for sending me you.
You, the people that support LoveMegXo, have been a pleasure and honor to serve. We have laughed, cried, grieved, prayed, and healed. Many of you have reached out and shared your lives with me and I am beyond humbled & grateful.
As we celebrate year two, I pray that you all are encouraged to pursue your dreams, to do what you love, to get closer to your Creator, and to NEVER EVER GIVE UP.
In honor of our second anniversary, my first original canvas painting ever, “Marley Girl” is 10%off! (ICYMI — click here: https://xolovemeg.wordpress.com/2016/03/08/marley-girl/) To order an original or a custom version, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love you always,
