Fear gives us a misconception that we are incapable, unworthy and unequipped. ~ Nai'lah Carter #ImpulsiveExpressions Click To Tweet
“Fear gives us a misconception that we are incapable, unworthy and unequipped.”
Sometimes we’re led by the belief that our dreams are just that, dreams. You admire others as they toil and persevere after something they’re passionate about but when it comes to your dream; you see the impossibilities of it being a reality. You’re either fearful that you’ll FAIL or worse, scared of your own SUCCESS.
The sad truth is, most often; you’re your own deterrent!
At 9, I started writing in a diary. I remember having the biggest imagination. I’d sneak off with a blank page and my thoughts just dreaming of a better life. I was ostracized by those that were supposed to love me and didn’t quite fit in anywhere but within the pages of my journal. Seeking validation and self-identity in a world that didn’t want me; I was lost.
By college, my insecurities kept me from moving forward and each failed relationship reminded me of why I’d never be good enough.
Graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. Degree in English—Creative Writing and didn’t even attend the graduation ceremony. I’ve been blogging since 2011, facilitated a myriad of workshops since my undergraduate studies, freelance Makeup-Artist (MUA) for the last two years but most importantly; I’m a mother.
I stopped making excuses and found solutions. I stopped complaining about where I’d been and embraced the lessons despite the pain. Truth of the matter is, you won’t see YOUR greatness until you are comfortable being who you are. Stop comparing yourself to others because no one’s struggle is the same. It took me YEARS to realize that I am great and powerful beyond measure. Let me help you see how dope you are!
New content will be uploaded on the blog twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays). I’ll cover beauty tips and tricks, the journey of a Mompreneur and the way I piece all the chaos together.
