Moving Through Fear

Many people say I’m brave because of the leaps that I take in life. Leaps such as applying to the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago, standing up to people in high places of power, and for moving to Florida without having any friends or family here. Yet, people don’t see the fear and doubt that boils up within me behind closed doors. Although I have been blessed with many talents and abilities, my biggest weakness is FEAR. So much fear that it causes me to become paralyzed and have spiritual panic attacks.  An attack that knocks the wind out of my body and breaks me down to my core in tears. Attacks in which I simply can’t see the light or a way out. Continue reading “Moving Through Fear”

Being Barely Sane

In the past two weeks, I found myself revamping major areas of my life. I noticed myself doing the same unproductive thing on my down time after work. Going home and shutting my mind off by watching Netflix. I was watching A Different World and I just finished the Scandal series (5 years later) ha! So, I transitioned to Being Mary Jane. I’m a couple episodes in and I find myself resonating with her a lot. I started putting sticky notes of positive affirmations all over my house and keeping myself accountable to reflecting on a daily/nightly basis in my journal. Overall, I realized how discontent I was with my free time.

In the process, I have decided to make more changes with Everything’s Magnificent. I am going to dedicate one day a week to working out my meditations on God/Religion/Life.

Mobilizing a Plan: Starting a Book Club

A few weeks ago, my friend @stylerepublik (ig/snapchat) was telling me about her wanting to start doing something tangible to affect her community. She recently has been putting a lot of thought into improving literacy and exposure to great works. She wants to start a book club and here’s the thinking where you can start any community program and examples using a book club.

Reader’s Choice: Plan of Action – Education

I responded to questions that the lovely @stylerepublik brought up over the past few days to culminate my thoughts. I truly believe there are a few things that must be central to our progression in the political realm AND development as people. The most central tenants we need to focus on are self-improvement, group accountability, awareness, and not letting helplessness or apathy set in. We can do it.

Originally this was going to be one post but the sections got so long that I decided to write my thoughts about each of my target improvement sections: Education, Media, Religion, Financial, Entrepreneurship, Political, Healthcare, Community, Self, Family
