More Updates & Welcome Video

Starting a new year has brought in a whole lot of new changes.  Some changes are positive while others are not.  Making a positive change in your life can be a good thing and that is what I am doing.  The major transitions has occurs in my life  and they are:  1. I have completed my masters degree in psychology (Yey!!!!).  2.  I have lost 25 pounds.  3. I am revamping my YouTube channel.  Keep visiting my blog I will keep you posted with more updates.

Especially since my hair has grown out.   To the right is a snapshot from recording my welcome to my my channel v-log.    And  you can check out my new intro video below.  I will elaborate more about these changes in my upcoming blog posts till next time.  Keep the faith!:)

Reflection - Random 2014 pics

Now that it is a start to a new years, here are some random Reflection 2014 pics:

I had both joy and laughter in 2014  and I also had some pain and sorrow, but  overall 2014 was a good year for me and my family. Tough but good.  I am looking forward to  an even better year in 2015.
 I had a lot of statistical research classes in 2014.  In 2015  I may take a  mental break from school and later start anew. Lol:)  Who knows?  Perhaps a new career is in the air.
 Below are my 2014 natural  hair styles

Here is one of my favorite nail polish with my purple laptop in the background.

 I lost 20 pounds in 2014.  I still have more to lose.  Here is a pic  of  me starting my transformation along with a straightened hairdo.  I will be posting my weight lost journey on my Kimberly Purpoz Channel on YouTube.

Below is one of my favorite dishes I loved to eat in 2014.  Still is one of my favorites.  Will try to cut back on the carbs for 2015.:)

Updates and Transitions

What's up peeps!:) I wanted to share some updates on what's going on with me and my life. Have you ever gotten to a point in your life in which you are transitioning? Well that is what I am doing right now.  This is when you are starting bring old tasks or projects to a completion and are beginning to expand and grow into new ones.

Right now my focus is on finishing up graduate school and I will be earning my Masters Degree in Psychology.   I am in the process of building a new solid career. And I will be pursuing my professional counseling license upon completion of my masters degree.

I am reaching a crossroad as to which direction I want to go in my life.  I may be switching universities to transition my career more into occupational therapy  and into the medical field.  My dear son Justin who has cerebral palsy was my inspiration for wanting to  go more into the medical field and learn more about better treatment options for the disabled.

My son Justin

I have to focus on building a life for my family.  I still write on my blogs:  Kimberly PurpozPsychology Essence Blog, and Purpoz Inspiration.   You all can check out my v-logs on the Kimberly Purpoz Channel on YouTube. I am still a research writer and blogger with U.S. Career Institute.

I have had some readers ask me if I am going to release some more books.  And the answer is yes.  I have two books that are almost at completion.  I  will continue to keep you all posted.  I might release some of my shorts stories and I will re-release some samples from some of my upcoming books.  Keep on checking back I will definitely keep you guys posted.  Till next time, keep the faith.
