What is a Neo-Soul Alter Ego?

So this is it, the point of no return in writing for all to see, anyone who's interested that is! (shout out to Blogging for Dummies!).....and THANK GOODNESS! It is time to truly experience the life of my Neo-Soul Alter Ego. Still not feeling me yet? Ok, here it is....I'm Angenella, an educated, single, working woman living a "ho-hum" life. Ugh! I've done pretty much what was "expected of me" and it has resulted in a life that goes something like this:
  • Wake up (after pressing snooze several times)
  • Shower
  • Do what I can w/my hair (no make up) & put on what fits
  • Skip breakfast
  • Go to work
  • 50/50 chance of a healthy lunch
  • Stay late at work
  • Pick up dinner (again 50/50 chance of healthy)
  • Go home
  • Check Facebook
  • Put on something with an elastic waistband
  • Fall asleep on the sofa with the TV on
Ok, so EVERYDAY isn't like that exactly. I have some "interesting" moments from time to time. But, unfortunately that was a true reflection of most days...especially Monday-Friday. Now don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for my life. I know there are people with much bigger problems like unemployment, loss of a loved one, life-threatening diseases, and etc. So in comparison, my life is pretty good....BUT I AM NOT WILLING TO SETTLE FOR "PRETTY GOOD" ANYMORE! I just can't take it! And why should I when my Neo-Soul Alter Ego is crying out to be set free!

Now I know that alter egoes are quite trendy these days, thanks to the likes of Sasha Fierce (love her) and Derek Blanks (google him). Some folks treat their alter ego like its someone who is brought to life on demand like a light switch. Well, my Neo-Soul Alter Ego (yet to be named) will not be satisfied with such a limited existence. She insists on experiencing every part of my life in some way, big or small, and from this day forward...I welcome her.

So allow me to introduce "Her", my Neo-Soul Alter Ego. She is vibrant, energetic, flirtacious, radiant, magnetic, authentic, blissfully in love with herself, and full of love to give. She experiences the world through her favorite things like food, fashion, arts/culture, travel, music, and oh I almost (giggle).

And so it begins...the co-existence of Angenella & hmmmm....what shall I call "Her"? Ok, so I haven't figured this all out yet (its new to me too)...but stay with me, I'll figure it out.


  1. Here's to setting your Neo-Soul Alter Ego free. I was just talking to a colleague about living this life to the fullest. You get one life on earth. Best to acknowledge our time here is limited and that we shouldn't waste a second on sub par living.
