Living in Your Sweet Spot
Let me informally introduce myself…I’m Lakesha Holloway but you can affectionately call me Kesha (pronounced Key-sha). Most people get this but I’m always correcting those Starbucks baristas.
So this is my attempt at jumping…jumping into a very known but unknown landscape. Known because I am a digital marketer. Unknown because I’ve spent my career building brands for others but not myself. I chose safe and now I’m venturing out into the deep and it’s exhilarating.
I grew up as a PK. If you don’t know what that is, it’s short for pastor/preacher’s kid. My mom was an administrator in higher education. In fact, she was the registrar at the same university I attended. Needless to say, I couldn’t get away with messing up because she knew my final grades before I did. So while I don’t necessarily carry the reputation of the typical preacher’s kid, I had my ways. I was sneaky but I had to keep my grades up or there was a serious price to pay.
Now here is where it gets complicated but I certainly wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. I have been a nomad for most of my adult life. After college, I lived in the Washington, DC metro area. I then moved to North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and then back to Virginia. It was during this time that I met the love of my life (Nate) and we got married. I thought the gypsy life was over but then we decided to move to Florida. That’s where we received our greatest miracle, our son Caleb. Recently, we’ve found our way to what we hope is our final destination in Charlotte, NC. We are literally living a dream at the lake and the view is stunning.
So there you have it. I am living in my sweet spot with my two loves and together we are allowing our Father to write the stories with beautiful surprises along the way. I hope our lives reflect the sweetness of His love for us and you!
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
