Hey readers! There has been a lot on my mind regarding validation. I feel we are in a society where we care about what others think. In my opinion, that is SO unesseccary. Why are we so fixated on what others think about us? I’m at the point in my life where I don’t care what anyone thinks about my lifes choices whether it’s a decision based on who I date, how much money I make, where I live, etc. We are so wrapped up with what others think it’s almost unfathomable. I mean, we try to wear name brand clothes, have the best cars, good paying jobs, makeup and even love interest to post pics and long drawn out stories on Facebook just for a like or a love emoji? What is that? Lol.
I’ve considered deleting my social media just because it’s such a time and soul crusher it’s not even funny. I’ve been re-reading a book called The Hollywood Commandments by DeVon Franklin and it talks about giving up or sacrifcing something to focus on God more. I think Facebook is that sacrifice. I will still have it to promote my book that is coming out next month, but other than that I don’t think I’ll post or scroll as much. There comes a time when you have to decide what you put your focus on. Mine needs to be writing and being successful with writing.
I LOVE this book! You have no idea. He talks about different ways that your gift makes room for you. I can not wait until my gifts continue to do that on bigger platforms. My goal is to write for a living whether it be for myself, a company or even a newsroom. My name will everywhere! I can guarntee that if I can’t guarntee anything else. DeVon had to sacrifice a lot of things to get to where he is and I respect his work ethic so much. If you haven’t read this book, check it out!
Coming In December 2018
I must say that I have VERY excited for my new self-help book to come out! This book is for writers who want to write a book or a screenplay. I give some tips that I have learned from film school and with writing mentors that I’ve had over the years. I hope this will help writers get started in the process. This book means so much to be, and I was really nervous to be on the cover, but I am glad that I decided to do it. Also, in this book I talk how I got started with writing, my ups and down and more.
There are always going to be people who have something to say about what you do. It does not matter what profession you choose, clothes you wear, even down to the types of meals you eat. People will always find a way to either tear you down or lift you up. In the event that does happen, why does their opinion have to validate you?
