Greetings fellow progressors and welcome to ProgressiveBeing. My name is Yaqeen and I'm on a mission to be the best me I can be. I just recently realized how short life really is and how much of a blessing it is to be alive. This mission I have created for myself will be life-long and I truly hope to accomplish as much as I can not only for myself but for others in my life. I always enjoyed writing and so I decided to create this blog to communicate, learn, teach and inspire those I come into contact with. I hope whoever comes across this website and reads my blogs can use it as fuel and continue to grow within themselves and with whatever ventures they decide to undertake. I was very hesitant to start my very own blog due to fear, and it took me a long time to even begin. Fear seems to always be near on standby, waiting to pounce on dreams ambitions and anything else that might give someone a fighting chance at bettering themselves. Instead of running or fearing fear itself, I embrace, accept and most importantly control this emotion ultimately placing me in a better position for progression.

I feel as though there is something lingering inside of me that is ready to come alive; I just have to bring it to life. I have always been the quite type, somewhat of an introvert, which is just part of my character and I'm totally comfortable with that but I just want more, not necessarily from others but from myself. I strongly believe that I' am my greatest enemy and ally all at the same time. I can either choose to better myself or submit and accept self defeat and adhere to mediocrity. I'm not the type to wave a white flag when there's a challenge, and so I shall continue to grow as much as possible. On that note I shall bid you adieu and leave you with a quote from my home-girl Ms. Frizzle "take chances, make mistakes and get messy".
