There are moments

Delayed at times mission one step forward led to a few steps back, but my mission was always forward moving. All those tears watered this rose that grew from the concrete on her own. My imagination aka my mind is the only thing that has kept me alive, kept me sane and moving forward. I thank the universe that my parents fostered that actively by default and are by design depending on the circumstances. There are no coincidences.

Hey Blair, I love the message here. I love where you say one step forwards, a few steps back, but your mission was always forward moving. I definitely resonate with that. Sometimes it does feel like that, but progress is harder to track in a sense of overall progress. And if we take a step back and look at it, we can usually find some forward momentum that stays consistent. So thanks for sharing. I really dig this piece of work

Good morning. Self doubt being rooted in past experiences is so true and so profound. Like, I believe a lot of us have a hard time accepting what's being said to us or accepting those flowers in the current space because we've heard so much of the opposite in the past. So I think it becomes a lot easier once we accept ourselves and we understand that we don't owe it to anyone except ourselves to do that. So wonderful words. Thank you for this

And that's where you go to your community, your friends and your family and your people that know who you are and know who you are at your core and know that that's just like a false narrative that your mind continues to run with from time to time because of essentially the programming that you've gone through in your life. And it's easier said than done. I've done it before
