An Author

In a lot of the movies, you see authors. Their houses or work areas be a mess with papers and scraps of papers everywhere. I didn’t understand why until I seriously started writing and paying attention to what I was doing.

My work area has tons of paper and scraps of paper everywhere. So I guess it’s true, you never know when inspiration will strike.

So you always have to be prepared and ready to write.

That’s a great philosophy for life… Always be prepared to give you what you have to offer. You never know when the chance of a lifetime is right in your face.

Just Myself

“Why try to be someone else, when it’s hard enough being me?” –Kita-Simone

As a kid, I wasn’t the most popular kid. Actually, I got picked on a lot but the same kids who picked on me were the same one who wanted to be my friend in the end. Ironic, huh. Don’t get me wrong, I had friends and I was a bit of a bully myself.

I always wondered why me? I realized cause through all the taunts and jokes, I am still me. The jokester, loyal friend, voice of reason (at times) that wasn’t scared to let a person know the truth.

I also realized they were haters. They saw the potential, I didn’t see and wanted to destroy it before I had a chance to see it. They knew I could do big things.

Well, the jokes on them… I’m still standing. I can say… I’m grateful to everyone of them. They made me stronger. They also made me see the me that was hidden.

Bullies are bullies for a couple of reasons…

1) They don’t like themselves and picking on someone else makes them feel better.

2) They’re jealous of something you have, can do, or already do.

3) They really don’t like you.

4) A combination of these things or some other things I can’t think of right now (sorry).

So when you have haters, bullies, or whatever you want to call them. Feel blessed and good, it means you’re either doing something right, on the right path, or have potential to do something big. I know it may be hard but just remember…

Good things in life, don’t always come easy. Sometimes they take a lot of work and faith. If you can hold on and know if no one else believes in you, God is with you and you can believe in yourself… Anything is possible. All those dreams are attainable.

So don’t compromise who you are or what you want, just to fit in to someone else’s mold. Be yourself, make your own decisions. Yes, sometimes you have to compromise but you don’t have to compromise everything. No one will love you like you love yourself.

“Be Yourself, Know Yourself, Love Yourself.” -Kita-Simone
Best of wishes to you… Blessings and Joy also.

Giving Up

Sometimes I just want to give up and walk away. I’m too stubborn to do it. For some it seems to come so easy and for others not so.

I fought most of my life. I was the popular unpopular kid in school. Maybe 1 day, I’ll tell you some of the stories but today is not that day. I was given the things I need. The things I wanted I had to fight, beg, and work my butt off. Does it ever get easy? I guess not for someone like me. Oh well, I’ll just keep it moving forward.

Right now, I really don’t know how. I thought I was moving forward but I’m still at square 1 or I might be even further back than square 1. Can you even be at square -10? I don’t think so but who knows.

My dream at 5 years old should probably stay a dream. I have to try and make it a reality. Why you ask? It’s all I know. Music is all I have ever really wanted to do. All my career goals spring from me singing.

Things happen for a reason, I just have to deal with it. So I will. I might be back at square 1 but all that means is I can start again. So it’s not game over. I hit restart! 🙂

Sometimes it’s good to rant. Today I need it.

My 1st Photoshoot

Today, I did my 1st photo shoot. The studio that photographed me was… MRock Style. I was extremely nervous at first. I didn’t know what to expect other than I was going to get my picture taken. So let me tell you a little about my experience.

I get to the studio and bring in my bag. I met the photographer and the stylist. Then we laid out my clothes in the changing area. As soon as my clothes were laid out… Straight to make-up. It took about an hour. Afterwards, I looked like a star. That’s just the look I was going for.

Then it was time to change into my 1st outfit. I changed my clothes and walked onto the set. Then came an explanation of the rules. I was pretty nervous at this point. I caught on quickly and had fun with it. I think that even if I didn’t catch on right away, the shoot would have still been great. Then came the other wardrobe changes.

I almost forgot to mention… My pictures. They came out beautifully. I didn’t know I was going to photograph that well.

MRock Style is a great place to do a photoshoot, especially if it’s your first time. They make you look great. They make your time there enjoyable and easy. While I was there, the time went by fast. I didn’t know how late it was til I got ready to leave.

I’m glad I could share this experience with you. As soon as the pictures get posted, I’ll post the info.
