Hey, y’all! Welcome to my site, and thank you so much for coming through. My name is Katrina Williams, but you can call me Optimistic K! I’m a GOD-FEARING, AMBITIOUS WOMAN from the southside of Fort Worth, TX who's on a mission to get a JEEP, meet my FAVORITE ARTIST, BRUNO MARS, and get TWO ABS so I can live in CROP TOP CITY like Ezekiel Elliott…LOL! Hey, don’t judge me! If I’m going to have goals, I may as well shoot for the stars. Honestly, I’m a HUGE DREAMER with a passion for helping others realize their full potential and capitalize on their opportunities! I LOVE working with the youth because I ENJOY witnessing the “LIGHT BULB MOMENT” and their evolution PROCESS! I live by the quote, “Be the person you needed when you were younger,” so naturally, my career has taken root in the field of education. For the past 11 years, I’ve been very intentional about building a sound platform, and I feel that right now is the perfect time to go all in.

I’m an ENTREPRENEUR, which means that I have a MILLION hustles, ideas, and odd jobs. I work as a nanny, life coach, author, crafter, photographer, and inspirational blogger. I’m also a CERTIFIED CONCERTGOER!!! I love good music, and I don’t mind traveling in order to see some of my favorite acts hit the stage. Oh, and did I mention that I'm also VEGAN?!?! Yeah, I know exactly what you're thinking. How is she TEXAN & VEGAN? It sounds like blasphemy, huh? Well, all I can say is, "WE DO EXIST," and "Where there’s a will, there’s a way!" I've been VEGAN for 4 years now, and honestly, it’s the best decision I could’ve ever made. I’ve learned how to challenge myself mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually, and as a result, I’ve been able to experience overall peace & harmony. 

My life is full of chopped and screwed moments, but the common thread that holds everything together is MY JOY! I intentionally view the world through an OPTIMISTIC LENS!! Having an optimistic state of mind is the key to living the GOOD LIFE, so I sprinkle that shh…. ON EVERYTHING!!! In this lifestyle blog, I’ll let you tag along with me on my many adventures. You’ll see inspirational blogs, health & wellness updates, and advice about college life. You'll get to see my journey of becoming a FULL-TIME ENTREPRENEUR! You’ll also hear all about my latest concert experience! Who knows? Maybe you'll eventually become a certified concertgoer too! I hope that you enjoy this journey with me and be blessed!
