New Year! New Blog!

Shola Speaks! is my new blogging home. If you've been keeping up with my posts, you should have figured out by now that I wasn't Finding my Chicago in Boston. I'm finding it in Chicago.

Shola means blessed and it was a name given to me by someone I met at a festival up north.  Blessed is exactly how I feel living in this vibrant city. I know now that there's no place like it. For me, Chicago is a step up from Boston and a much needed step down from New York's craziness (love you NY but slow down!). My parents chose Boston for me in the past. I'm choosing Chicago for my future.

Whatever Shola chooses to speak, I hope it speaks life to you. I want my readers to experience laughter, peace, a challenge to go higher or deeper in their life journey as I am going in my own. Stay by my side as we take this blogging stroll together.
