Initially, I wanted to make a video promoting an event that I had planned. It was not going to be a hair event but rather a self help, self motivation, self development type joint. I would pitch to my loved ones like ” Yeah we gon be all like ‘We love ourselves. We can overcome our fears. We know how to affirm our self worth. YAY!’” And I also had plans to throw in some small business makeup and hair vendors to help with the exterior beautification and self realization. Everyone was like “OOkkkayyy. Do it.” When I sat down to draft out the schedule and curriculum, I hit a hard, cold wall.
WTF do I even know about myself? What fears and challenges have I overcome? How am I going to lead anyone anywhere when I’m twiddling my thumbs in the dark as well. I too am afraid to turn on the light and face my demons. Nonetheless I have to. I’ll learn along the way. Ask and you shall receive. In this tumultuous, confusing and oh so exciting times of my twenties I ask for faith, conviction, clarity, direction and the strength of a warrior. A(women).
