A new era:
To be smart and calculating. To be respected, not approved of. To take myself seriously and see myself for the value I add to myself and the parts of my world I care about. To be part of solutions, not problems. To thank my critics and grow from the pressure. To understand cultural contexts and thrive through them, despite my own beliefs. To challenge culture in a way that is empowering for those who were powerless. To give less fucks ❤️. To let God love me and the power sHe has put in me. To forgive myself for thinking less of my gifts and abilities. To be a leader. To strive for greatness and legacy. To love and be loved. To being selfish. To not talking about it for too long. To refusing to settle. To being okay with not being liked. To be a beacon. To sophistication and self love. To understanding who I am. To raising my fucking standards. To grace, ruthlessness, mercy, grit and power. To not letting them tell me who I am. To privacy and freedom. To wealth. To prayerful nights and mornings. To tears of joy. To life.
4am and thinking about self.
