What's good y'all? How's your Sunday going?
I got a question. What's your definition of success? What does it look like?
Answer one or the other if they are both different or only have a response for one of them. For me, success is me actually making a living being a writer/author/creator. Of course I'd love ship loads of money but I'd be comfortable with a livable wage to my standard.
"I've been saying this for years but I'm glad our good sis IssaRae turned my hot line into a hot song. "I'm rooting for everybody Black." Funny enough, I started saying those same words as a teen/young adult when I started watching award shows and would be asked who I was rooting for. I don't watch award shows anymore but what hasn't changed is my love for the Black Team."
What's so refreshing about this blackform (black owned platform) is that there's not a bunch (or any) melanated rich people constantly inboxing me trying to get me to buy into their peramid scheme. Just people vibing, educating and being them. No one trying to scam other black folks under the guise of "networking" and "black economics."
"Focus on yourself" is one of the best bit of advice that I live by. You accomplish so much while creating peace for yourself that wouldn't be there if you kept allowing undeserving people get your time, energy and happiness.
"Some people might consider scribing an outdated and tedious act, but if your mind isn’t as sharp as it used to be and all of your thoughts are on your phone, once that phone goes, so does your mind."
I just published a new blog post "Phone Fast."
Going to be reconstructing my site today and are looking for creative writers/artist who want some free exposure, message me and spread the word. More on that later on.
