Today’s Morning Pages thoughts: “Do I live so I can write the story? Or do I write the story so I can live?” I’ll be honest... I ask myself a lot of questions. Some that scare me to answer, because in that answer you can learn something about yourself that you felt more comfortable not knowing, but, comfort stunts growth. So I keep asking myself questions, even if it scares me, because when you face fear it turns into knowledge and knowledge is power. Reclaim your power. ✨✨✨

Yesterday, @thescriptlab sent an email about “Why must a writer tell the truth?” and man I couldn’t have clicked on it quicker. Because HI 👋🏻 I vomit the truth everywhere. @robertmckeeseminars said, “In a world of lies and liars, an honest work isn’t just what audiences want but what they need.” YES is all I have to say about that. That’s who I am. It took me a while but I’m comfortable with it now, and my recent writing shows it. It’s my role in this world. To make people uncomfortable in a comfortable-ish setting. I’m told I’m the easiest person to talk to, free of judgment but that I’m also not who you go to if you don’t want to grow. Sometimes it’s hard when people you love and are closest to, avoid you but I guess that’s the price when you hold up a mirror to things no one wants to deal with. If I love you, care about you, I’m not gonna just watch you lie to yourself and sit quiet. I expect the same treatment. I don’t sit in my tower. I push myself every day. Ask questions every day. Dissect those big life things every day. If we aren’t growing and learning we are staying in the same place. The next thing you know a month, a year, a lifetime will pass and you’ll have missed out on this opportunity and that one. So learn something today, about yourself, the world or the people around you. Get out of your comfort zone. Turn “I can’t” into “I haven’t yet.” It’s never too late, for anything. ✨✨✨
On this subject, a huge shout out to @lennonstella and her very raw and real new song, “Like Everybody Else.” ✨✨✨

The level of pride I have for this human right now is unmeasurable. She was scared but she did it anyways! She didn’t think she could but she did it anyways! And let me just tell you SHE CAN, and SHE DID! If you haven’t caught her performance of @thewomanisperfected2018 Saturday is your last chance! Don’t miss it. Not for @maliabeth’s sake but for yours. This woman has an insane talent to take you to places inside yourself that you didn’t even know existed. I’ll never stop looking at her like she is magic. ✨✨✨

She wasn’t born herself
She found herself
Over a long
And treacherous road
And the more treacherous
The road became
The more of
She found. - Atticus
