Don't Stop Dancing in the Darkness
I get in ruts where I step away from my passion/hobby (not really sure what to call this, still lol) because I feel as though I have nothing of value to say. It'd either be sad, or uninspiring, and y'all wouldn't even care.
Through my time away from my little baby, I came to realize that I started this blog not only because I had something to say, but because I really needed an outlet. So whether anyone agrees with what I have to say, or even likes it, it doesn't matter at all. This is for me.
I started listening to this podcast called "Jesus & Jollof" by Luvvie Ajayi and Yvonne Orji. For those who don't know, Luvvie is a famous blogger and speaker, and Yvonne Orji is an actress/comedian best known for playing Molly on "Insecure". They dropped the 1st episode of their podcast on July 11th, and I am already in love with it, and waiting for more.
They said a few outstanding things throughout each of their episodes, but one thing really stood out to me: Just because someone happens to be successful or wealthy, that doesn't make them the most talented or the most well-equipped person for the job, it just means that they just stayed the course.
This got me thinking on a few things:
1. Everything that is supposed to happen, will happen.
2. Visualization is just as important as the work you put in.
I titled this post "Don't Stop Dancing in the Darkness", because we are truly living in dark times. It seems like the world around us is going to crap, but we still go on with our daily lives as best we can. It is so easy to get caught up in the funk, trust me, been there and did that.
Even though things look bleak and times are bad, we still have to push through and persevere. I don't know about y'all, but I refuse to be down for too long. Your time, my time, OUR time is now.
Thanks for reading.
