Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life.

Cocoa Fly is Heading to BlogHer Pro Cramps and All!


BlogHerPRO

So in between preparing for my Christmas wish come true, and working, and Holiday shopping, and birthday gift shopping, and Amazon bargain shopping I decided to go to the BlogHer Pro conference. This is not my first bloggers conference, but I've never been to a BlogHer conference. And since it's just over the bridge in San Francisco, I thought, why not? I'm excited, of course a little nervous because I'll have to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people. And on top of that I've had cramps all week. I know that's TMI but hey, that's one of the prices of having estrogen. I'm social, but it's not easy when you're not feeling 100%. So I'll woman up, pop some Motrin and enjoy myself. Luckily it's a women's conference so people will understand my circumstance. :) 

Usually when I go somewhere alone I leave nervous. Then I meet people and have a great time. It never fails. 

I look forward to reporting back with good info!
