Today I learned something about quality.
You could do almost anything, anytime you wanted, right? I mean think about it… If you really wanted to go pick up a paintbrush, some paint, and an easel right now… You could be a painter.
But what determines your “title” at that point?
are you a painter just because you went to the store, bought some paint, paintbrushes, and that easel? Are you a painter because you call yourself one? Or is there some societal standards that allows you to call yourself whatever it is that you want to be?
I think what’s more important is that you look inside yourself and decide if what you’re doing makes you happy. Is what you were doing with your time serving you? Does it make you feel purposeful, loved, alive? Those are the things that determine what you are and what you are not. If it’s for you then be it! Poor yourself into it. Give your dreams life ✨✨
If it’s not for you… guess what?? THATS.OK.TOO!
The great wall of China is not going to fall because you tried something and it’s not right for you.
Don’t worry about what people think you are or are not. Be true to your soul, love yourself, and be freaking kind. For the love of tacos, be KIND! 💜🔥🖤 push yourself

So, prior to my twenty-fifth birthday, I was already coming up with this master plan to finally step out on faith and see if I had what it take to be a standup comedian, because for the last few months so many people around have being telling me I’m sooooo funny and all that jazz that I figured, “Ya know what!?! WHY THE HELL NOT!” I’m the type of person who believes if I give 100% to anything, there’s nothing I can’t do! And that’s not coming from any egoistical mindset, it’s just me being confident in me and knowing that I have some real gifts within me that need to be shared with the world.
But that’s all y’all getting for now… It’s going to be a LOT of funny, unapologetic, real talk on my YouTube channel, so PLEASE SUBSCRIBE and be ready to laugh, cry, and scream, “YAAAAASSS SIS!” at your prefer device that has YouTube access and decent WiFi. LINK IS IN MY BIO!
We hate adversity. Yet it is the test to see what we actually know. Do I want to know what I do and don’t know? What’s in my heart or just hangin out in my head? Yes. Do I love time without adversity? Of course, and when I experience a time like that I’ll let you know 😂. See that’s just it - life doesn’t have to be fulfilling my needs and wants for me to experience joy, or peace. Understanding the process of growth and how it best takes place has allowed me to remain calm, even when things could seem adverse. I’ve experienced people in my life who pursue ways to disrupt and destroy my existence and my peace. They’ve wasted a hell of amount of time in the attempt. They are bent on seeing me fall apart. They are waiting on that; doing what they can to make that happen. If only they knew leaving me alone would be the only thing to make me weaker; for all their devilish behavior has in large part created incredible strength and mental achievement I never thought I would master. Enemies have proved something I don’t know if I in the past even truly believed: for God makes all things work together for GOOD to those called according to his purpose. Boom! And his purpose has been Love - showing me love and I am seeing that more clear then ever before. So I do not curse my enemies. For I do not own a dark heart. But one reserved for glory.
