It's not the absence of fears that make you great, but the willingness to push through in spite of them. I don't want to be remembered as fearless. Everything I have now is a product of countless scary decisions, nose diving into a pit of uncertainty, and trusting my ability to build wings on the way down. Life motto: Feel the fear and do it anyway. The view on your journey of growth is always worth it. Photo Credit |

Life is a series of fleeting moments, and the most beautiful ones shape our todays and guide our tomorrows. This life, however transient, has been nothing short of a dream. And every now and then someone special will remind me that while dreams are fun, fairytales are even better. πŸ’– Check my InsaStories for my current mood. Dress πŸ‘—:

Today marks 1 month of "living" in Bali, and it's satisfied a craving I didn't know I had an appetite for. Bali is as magical and serene as everyone makes it out to be, and for someone with fidgety feet who can't stay in one place for too long, I'm definitely in no rush to leave. Loving this chapter of life, please don't flip the page β€πŸ“–πŸ”– P.S. For all the nonstop and unfiltered fun of what really goes on behind the 'gram, catch me on Snap πŸ‘» "GL0" (with a zero) πŸ’πŸΎ

If you aren't out here living your best life, then whose permission are you waiting on? First and foremost, a sincere thank you to everyone who took the time to read my latest article! I've skimmed through over 500 comments and emails in the last couple days and I'm amazed at the extent of the human heart. While I use my words as therapy for others, you all's words have been therapy for me. One of the most sincere things someone told me is that I'm helping more people than I'm offending. And at that moment, I knew there were no mistakes in me publishing those thoughts (link in bio). My mission has always been, how can I live my best life and inspire others to do the same? How can I negate all the harmful stereotypes of the black community? How can I prove that our dreams do NOT have to be limited by our circumstances? I'm thankful for my freedoms, but even more thankful that it allows me to leave and seek a better life where I can practice said freedoms to the full extent of the word. No, the grass isn't always greener on the other side, but it's fertilized with different shit, and honestly some sh*t just stinks a little less than others. In life, we all get taller. But only few people actually grow. Neither concept can be forced. My Pan-Africanism doesn't have to look like yours. But I sincerely hope every black person can find a way to unbind any mental shackles stagnating their greatness, because we no longer have to live with physical ones. If any of what I said [in my article] angered you, I encourage you to unfollow, because there's a whole lot more vibes I'll be giving off with my newfound freedom. And I don't want my liberation to offend you. P.S. Peep the InstaStories for some lip syncing fun! 😘

I bared my soul in my most recent blog post and it's already garnered over 50,000 views, 2,000 shares, and dozens of hate mail. I have no quotes to pull from it. It honestly should've been made into 4 separate articles, but I needed to put all my thoughts in one place. And it needs to be read in its entirety. If you don't have 25 minutes to dedicate to it, then please do NOT bother opening it. Do not skim. Do not browse. Do not assume. Just read. I've been trying to write this for years and pressing publish feels like shackles off my feet. Black people especially, you can disagree, but please do so respectfully. That's all I ask. I'm human. I'm flawed. I'm learning. And when there's something on my heart, I feel compelled to share. My circumstances and experiences shape my perspective and form my truths. If I belittled your pain, I'm sorry. If I simplified your struggle, I'm sorry. If I will "never understand", I'm sorry. I spoke my truth as I saw it and it has been the most freeing feeling in the world. Love you all. Just gonna take a little break from here for a bit. ❀ Link in bio | bit.ly/DiasporaDialogue

I stopped letting my happiness become a byproduct of my success, and made it a daily choice instead. Self-care is sexy y'all. And the Lord saith unto man, "Treat thy self." Amen. Check my IG stories for the behind-the-scenes prep to get this shot! So much fun!

You don't need a palace to realize you're a queen. Don't settle for a bum, keep waiting for your king. Lets you shine without permission, not intimidated by your drive. Knows how to lock down a good thing, turn a woman to a wife. Call me out of reach, 'cuz my standards sit top shelf. If you spoil me with your loyalty, I can finance myself.

I sat in the corner of my villa reading through dozens of new fan mail from an old viral article that recirculated the webs. To the 18-year old South African who I inspired to get a passport, I love you. To the 51-year old mother who said I reignited her flame to chase her dreams, I thank you. To the 26-year old Kenyan who quit his job to pursue his passion, I'm inspired by you. To the 14-year old Australian whose sister gave you my book, I adore you. To the 20-somethings out there who feel trapped, unhappy, or scared to take that leap of faith into the unknown, that was me too. Insecure. Doubtful. Terrified. Alone. Unsure. But my drive to succeed far outweighed my fear of failure, and that's why I'm still standing. Don't be frustrated when people can't understand your dreams, because they don't have your vision. Your emotions are valid. Your life is valuable. And you have a very unique calling in this world that only YOU can carry out, and I can't wait for you to discover it. All we have are our todays, let's live for them. They're a gift! We call it "the present" for a reason. Millennials may get the worst reputation for being spoiled and entitled brats, but I have never felt more fired up to create magic and build legacies than with my fellow 90's babies in the most lucrative digital era ever. What is your dream? Type it below. Put that energy out in the universe and let your blessings manifest. I dare you.
