Hmmm how can I say this, it’s been a contemplative month since I’ve come back from traveling. I’m coming into my own and seeing the light in me. It’s brighter than I’ve ever felt it.
I used to go to these fancy events and felt less than, as though I had to prove myself and yesterday I really felt my light shine. I remember this one guy who was so intrigued by my lifestyle, kept asking me questions, which is all good, but you can’t get to know me in a few minutes. The words that came out of my mouth was new, fresh. Because I usually don’t even talk out loud unless I have to, unless I am speaking with purpose.
He asked for my social media following, my blog subscribers, facebook, and yes, I quoted them, hmmm well 1k for instagram isn’t so high…and I said “I’m about quality, not quantity…I’m not here looking for people to approve of me or what I have to say, I know what I have to give to the world is of value, I know who I am”.
Then I had a conversation with an up and coming rapper about the same thing. I said “you gotta know who you are, you got to have a strong spiritual sense of self before you go out there, you gotta know that your worth does not come from someone in a corporation approving you”.
In fact, I will say no to working with people who aren’t aligned with MY vision, it’s my life after all.
