    Caught A Few Lessons. I Plan To Bag A Few More.

    I take my birthday month very seriously. Yes. Birthday month-not just my actual birth day.

    It took me a couple of weeks to reflect on my year, but I caught a few lessons:

     

    Change is not inevitable. Some things stay the same for far too long.

     

    You know you’re strong when you can make peace with your weaknesses.

     

    The people who count on you won’t mind if you count on them every now and then.

    ...Additionally, the number of people who count on you needs to be edited, often.

     

    Losing weight really does happen in the kitchen.

     

    Stick to it for as long as it takes. And sometimes it takes long.

     

    You don’t stop being worthy because you mess up.

     

    If you want better, you gotta make room for it.

     

    Take your losses and the wisdom that come along with you. Wise is dope.

     

    Nothing is given. If you want it you gotta take it.

     

    Apologies are overrated. I got a couple that didn’t change a thing.

     

    Finding things that move you is so important.

     

    God's Plan... I can't do this on my own.

     

    This next year of my life already has me shook. I'll be sure to bag more lessons to share.

    Storytelling And How I Was Almost Special Agent Nakeia. What's Your Story?

    True story:

    I was supposed to be an FBI agent. Yup. I was supposed to be special agent Nakeia, working in some department that studied criminal behavior and profiled some of the most dangerous people in the world.

    I went on to become a social worker, makeup artist, songwriter, speaker, inspirational writer, mentor, consultant, copywriter, and copywriter instead. That’s a lot. I know.

    I did revisit my plan to work in the criminal justice field. But, instead of trying to catch criminals, I worked to rehabilitate them as a Counselor in a community corrections facility.

    That’s what’s great about life. You can decide who you want to be, at any time, and go do that.

    You can decide, change your mind, and decide again.

    It seems every few chapters of my life are different. I like it that way. Keeps me poppin’. You feel me?!

    What’s your story? Who have you become? How have you decided to stay poppin’?

    Send me an email so we can chat about it.

    "They" Have No Idea What They're Talking About. But, DJ Khaled and I Do.

    “They” will have you out here thinking you’re not good enough.

    “They” will have you doubting your abilities, questioning your purpose, and comparing your life to someone else’s...

    “They” will lead you to believe that your contribution in this world is insignificant.

    “They” are a trip!

    They don’t pay your bills.
    They don’t add any value to your life.
    And at the end of the day, they don’t have to answer to the calling on your life.

    What they think is irrelevant.

    DJ Khaled got it right. They may not want you to succeed.

    They may not believe in your dopeness.

    They may not understand your genius.

    So, it’s your responsibility to believe in yourself and cultivate your own genius.

    There will be plenty of people who doubt you, don’t be one of them.
