The key to success is patience, consistency, faith and passion for your gift. These past few months each of those traits were tested. I can kid you not. I promise I have been going through it. I've been depressed and stressed times two. I found myself just sleeping and not eating because life had just gotten the best of me. I began losing faith in myself and just felt like giving up. I started questioning God with questions like "Why does this keep happening to me?" " What am I doing wrong?" "How can I fix this?" I started neglecting my work and myself. I wasn't sleeping and eating like I normally do. I knew I had to get it together. I could no longer sulk in my sorrows and stress over something that is only short term. With the help of God, my daughter, a special friend who is very dear to me and my passion for art and fashion, I had to let it go. I realized I am too talented and I have a lot to offer the world with this gift God has blessed me with. I know I need to make a better living for my daughter and I knew my friend wouldn't allow me to not succeed. I'm learning uncomfortable life experiences prepare and humble you for the blessings God has for you. I'm learning the greats didn't become successful over night, so my patience is getting better. I'm also learning no matter what you are going through in life, always focus on your goals and remain consistent. Never allow life to get the best of you. I have learned to put my faith in God instead putting it all in man. I know I can't do anything without Him and I learned to pray more and worry less. My time is coming and I'm thankful for all the hardships and pain I'm experiencing now, so I can rejoice the blessings that's about to happen.
Ladies and gentleman, always remember you have a gift and no matter what curve balls are thrown at you when you are trying to reach your breakthrough, don't give up. Don't quit. Don't worry and don't allow anything to stop you from being the best you.
