I've been diligently avoiding writing this. It's the deepest of wounds, and the one that will likely give me the most freedom if I face it, yet it's the one I find myself doing everything I can possibly do to avoid it. Today alone I've cleaned every inch of my already clean apartment, did dishes … Continue reading Trust
It’s late. I know that. All the best marketers would tell you it’s too late to post something that’ll be effective. . But it’s not about that. It’s not about “being seen,” or gaining followers. It's about raw moments. It’s about real life. It’s about being human. . I’ve always been someone who carried this … Continue reading Some posts are too long for Instagram…
I sent this text to my best friend on the East Coast today: Having a moment, just gunna share out loud to make myself feel better: I realized today as I watch this new show I'm into that every show I get attached to has the same theme... yes there's laughing, crying, real-life drama, etc, … Continue reading Community
Can we talk about this for a minute? "Authenticity is rebellious." I heard that phrase today and it lit a fire in my belly so strong I had to take a break from the memoirs and get back on the blog. It was a phrase that fell into the Universe and landed in my ears … Continue reading Authenticity is Rebellious
We are the sum of the 5 people we spend the most time with. We ultimately attract who we are. I crossed paths with these two phrases way too many times this week to ignore them. So this evening I've just been sitting with them. And I went through some strange phases as I digested … Continue reading Be Your Change.
Part of MAVERICK is living out loud; being real and authentic, no matter what. I've mentioned before that I have had multiple run-ins with friends and followers who have said things that have lead me to believe that what I portray is not relatable. They've said that I am so positive, and so energetic, and … Continue reading Marching on to the Beat I Drum
No more excuses. I have a routine, I am settled, I have time. So in this moment, I find myself wondering why I am not using this available time to pour into MAVERICK. Not long ago this vision kept me awake at night; it had me jumping out of bed in the morning; it had … Continue reading Defining Your WHY
Intention. It's going to be the focus of 2019, for me. As you all know, I haven't been very consistent with MAVERICK since finding out I was moving to Chicago. First of all, thank you for your patience. I'm human, and really needed to focus on the process, the change, the goodbyes, and the settling … Continue reading Intention
As you all know by now (or if not, get on the Insta: @MaggieAdele_MAVERICK), I've been galavanting around New York for the last few weeks. It's quite a magical story, actually. And amidst this holiday weekend, I have finally found a moment to share it. Remember a little over a month ago when I wrote … Continue reading The Next Chapter!
Something is happening. I can't quite put my finger on it, but things are changing. In me, around me, for me... something. The change is uncomfortable, to say the least. You know those movie scenes where there's a person standing in a crowd, and they're perfectly still looking at the camera while everyone else is moving … Continue reading In the Middle of a Shift
