It’s January 1st, 2019, which marks my third year of blogging and it’s definitely not been the easiest road.
I would be lying if I said 2018 was a perfect year! 2018 was full of many ups and downs, sometimes it felt like the downs were more plentiful than ups. But a life without struggles wouldn’t help me to learn from my obstacles and it’s the obstacles that challenge me to be my best self! I’m grateful for all my experiences of 2018 and look forward to what’s coming in the new year!!
As every year goes by and I get older I realize how important family is and how valuable time spent with family can be. We often get caught up with everyday life that we tend to forget the importance of family, 95% of my family still resides in Michigan and it’s definitely hard not being able to see them daily. Especially when I have nephews and nieces that are growing up so fast, I’m definitely the overprotective, spoiling, affectionate, strict, and extremely loving Uncle Rah Rah! So in 2019 I definitely plan to make more trips back home just to lay eyes on family members and spend time with them as much as possible.
On November 2, 2018, I was laid off from my job and to be honest I didn’t know and some days still don’t know what’s next for me. I’m a man of many talents and I have a very creative mind so I’m always working on something. I guess the greatest outcome of losing my job is now I’m forced to think outside the box, and able to began to create more and spend more time focusing on my goals and myself. I’ve got a lot of goals set for myself this year but I’ve decided the best approach for me is to work on them silently and not announce everything I’m doing.

It’s funny because out of all the things I typed above this will be the section folks pay the most attention (it’s human nature) lol. Rah Mosley is SINGLE! In the spirit of being transparent, I did connect with someone that I thought for sure was the one this year, but I realized it was best for me to walk away. Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect love to happen overnight but no one in they’re mid-to-late ’30s, well into ’40s should be out here dating just to make friends. For me, I find it hard to be just friends with someone I have more than friendly feelings for so it was best for me to walk away from the situation. Walking away was not an easy decision for me because I’m a fighter when it comes to working things out and trying to build a lasting friendship/relationship that eventually grows into a marriage/partnership. I’m optimistic about finding love and I never say never, but I’m taking a break from that area for a little while. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself in my time of living it’s that when I like or love someone I give it my all and I cannot settle for less being given to me. I also know for sure that if someone really wants to be with you nothing in this world will stop it and vice versa! But enough of that I’m in a good place and long as I have an active gym membership my workouts tend to keep me focused and my mind clear!
I can honestly say that I have some really great friends, we may not talk every day but when you are truly friends it’s not required. I tend to treat my close friends like family because they mean that much to me! I have lost a few friendships in 2018, but I will never speak ill of them or go posting subliminal messages via social media. I want to see everyone continue to succeed in all of their future endeavors
Lastly, I will continue to use my blog to discuss various topics all relating to things that the site was built upon from fashion, health, grooming, and lifestyle. I’ve decided to be a bit more transparent and personable on the blog by bringing more topics of discussion in along with my usual content. I also plan to bring my love of R&B music to the blog and have a lot more youtube content so please stay tuned for that as well as subscribe to my channel (Rah Mosley) I have so much more in store for my readers and followers so thank you all for riding out with me!!
