Today, one of my closest friends sent me a message on facebook and it really touched my heart. You know that takes alot because I'm a stone cold thug, wondering if heaven has a ghetto LOL . BUT She was saying how her family is so proud of me of what I've done and what I'm currently doing and it made me sit back and bask in the moment for a second. I really don't acknowledge what I'm doing most of the time mainly because it's happening so fast. She also said that I'm her inspiration to do what she's passionate about. She's seen my courage and is inspired by it. This is the type of affect I want to leave on people. I didn't think the impact would be so great so soon though. It honestly made me tear up. I really hope she goes through with her dreams and passion because I guarantee if she doesn't she old be happy in the long run.
I know that my family are proud and my little cousins looks up to me , but I never knew my peers were watching so attentively, and that with in itself is pushing me to go harder. Doing what I think is right and feels half right is how I've gotten this far. There are no written guides to this shit, you live you learn, and try to watch out for the warning signs the wise hint to you.
But I've been really feeling super good lately, like my positivity aura is getting greater and greater everyday. And at this point I'm not even worried about what I don't have, I'm just working to get to where I need to be.
I've been searching the Orlando area for work in fashion magazines and publications of that nature for photography. One of the magazines I sought after staff members contacted me today, so I'm praying something comes through with that. That was super exciting, and in the mean time I will continue to do me, build my skill hone my craft. What else can I do when I'm not getting paid, GET BETTER.
I made up a new saying today "Love the skin you're in, love the kin you're in"
I think its very important to love God, yourself and family no matter how dysfunctional they are. No one said you couldn't love from a distance, never the less love them.
ps. check my updated photography portfolio. on flickr.
my personal website is under development right now, I have to get one of those to become legit.
love you all and send peace to the universe,
pps Before writing this entry I wanted to make sure I was using the correct use of affect or effect. So I looked up the word Affect and it said - to have and effect on . LMAO wow thanks alot with all the webster
