I’VE BEEN SELFISH. YOU TOO.

July 20, 2020

Hey faves! This is not really a sad post because who gets sad on a Monday? I just woke up to this newsletter from Adekunle Gold and I’m grateful I signed up for it, you should too! It made me realize a lot of things, that these people we celebrate, most times have it rough. I’m even going too far, I have had people come into my dm on Instagram to say they admire me and look up to me. I try to find strength in their words but other times, I wish they could see the struggle and the mental depression I go through.

I don’t know if it’s a zodiac sign thing or who I naturally am but I have a habit of wanting to do it all at once. Believe me when I say it can be super unhealthy sometimes. I get easily worked up when things don’t go the way I plan and when I decide to get over something, I dump it real hard! I started a newsletter, I was so pumped about it! You should have seen me that week, nothing could stop me (I need that kind of energy when exercising) but after I sent out the first letter, about 30 out of my 72 subscribers received it. MailChimp broke my heart, I won’t lie it pained me! Guess what? I gave up.

I wasn’t patient enough, I couldn’t even consider the people that took out their time to subscribe, I was so selfish! Thinking of it now, this post would have been beautiful as a newsletter. This is me openly apologizing to everyone that subscribed, I’m bringing the newsletter back, I promise.

All I’m trying to say with this post is that patience is everything. See, our AG BABY is dropping an album on the 21st of August, he birthed the idea of this album in 2017. Three whole years ago! It’s never too late trust me, just be patient and embrace your journey.

I want to see all of us at the top, receiving awards, getting recognized, cashing out big time, doing rich people things, and never going broke. I’m going to be intentional about the things I do from today, I’d start to think highly of the people rooting for me so I don’t quit, I’d consider my dreams and all of that future plan. I’m done being selfish. You should too! Have an amazing week and let’s do amazing things creatively.

I love you!

    I’m currently in this state, thank you for sharing.
    I’ve been doing so much that I’m not so excited about the results and my mother is beginning to think maybe I’m wasting my time!!
    I cried so much last night, I began doubting myself
    My energy level used to be like 90 but now, I don’t even know what I feel

      I can relate. I think it’s because we are all trying to do so much at the same time. Baby steps or maybe toddler steps. We’d all get there
