Music, writing and love stories, epic or tragic make my world go round. My love for writing bloomed between the pages of my first diary. My mother gave me the gift of pen and paper which ultimately unwrapped my purpose, unbeknownst to me that would be the first place my story would align.
As an early graduate from Virginia State University with honors and B.A. in Sociology a dream job seemed nothing short than achievable. That was until life kicked in, winters became crucial, dreams seemed like just dreams and the routine 9-5 was stifling. Any and every job change felt like a failure because I knew there was something I was letting die inside of me. Before I made the decision to save myself I spent an innumerable amount of hours pushing people towards their purpose. I watched people take steps into their destiny due to countless conversations and motivation that stemmed from me.
The real question was, “What was I afraid of?”
I didn’t believe then, that something which was natural to me was a talent. I didn’t realize that where you struggle can be the same places you succeed. No matter what field I worked in there were always three questions I could answer about a client and those around me. Were they happy? Did they do a job they loved? What was their love story? Their answers made my heartbeat, my answers made my heartbreak. I never noticed how my struggle about where I was, was actually preparing me for where I was going. Cold winters, heartbreak and failure taught me everything I know. I guided people off of my own mistakes, lack of communication, fear of moving forward and loving with too much caution. I was changing their narrative while my story suffered. I finally made the decision to work on what would be my most challenging project, MYSELF. It was there I learned that my failures over qualified me for success and the transformation from existing to living would be the most rewarding. I made the decision to live, then life began to align. I chose to meet life halfway and it was there I uncovered the other half of life that was waiting for me. Now as a published Author, Life Coach and Wedding Officiant I emphasize the importance of communication and building up from brokenness. I believe that pain procreates your pinnacle therefore we must take the ugliness of the world and create something that is beautiful and with every new journey we embark upon we must never give up on our fairytale.
