My Journey: Origins (Continued)

...While readjusting to the American culture, I underwent a series of deep introspection. It was like I was experiencing what I was already familiar with but through different lenses. The feeling at the time was unexplainable. From that came to the passion to share something, or create something. It was then that I began a self-imposed "Journey to Self-Love" that I have been on ever since.



Fast forward to 2018, during my summer internship, I was stuck in an office for at least 8 hours a day sorting through legal documents, *snorrr*.  Somehow, I began listening to podcasts centered around entrepreneurship and business-building and realized that the principles they were talking about were relatable to so many other areas of my life. One day it clicked for me: the reason that all of these business gurus and entrepreneurs are so successful is that they had a mindset shift!  I had this strong urge to share this revelation but I still didn't know how I was going to accomplish that. 



A few months later, it dawned on me that I could actually be the one to create a podcast of my own to share that kind of content. I was set to release the podcast by the end of 2018, however, I was terrified. What do they call people who don't do something because they're too scared? I'll let ya'll figure that one out. But Me? Too scared?


A list of things I've done that is way scarier than launching a podcast:

- Moved to NYC at 17.

- Cut ALL of my hair off... Twice!

- A horse literally bit my finger off.

- Swallowed bleach (ask my mom for details).

- Rode on the back of a motorcycle in heels and a jean jacket.

- Jumped off of a cliff... more than three times.

- Cheerleading. (Don't argue with me on this one)

- Did I mention I moved to NYC at 17?


Even after all of this, I still didn't do it. I literally let the fear of putting myself out there stop me from doing something I was truly passionate about. Well, me being my Scorpio self, I wanted to really understand why I was feeling that way. I had to explore all of the possible reasons I didn't want to do what I really wanted to do. It was then that I began to break down the fear of not wanting to start.



Fast forward again into 2019, I let another year go by without doing what I really wanted to do. I needed to get out of my own way. The most disappointing part was that I knew exactly what I needed to do to get out of my own way... and yet, there I was still. Podcast-less.


Over the course of 3 years, I've recorded, written and cultivated a lot of content that I intended to share when this one day became a reality. Finally, here we are in 2020 and it's official. I have my blog. I have my podcast. I have my brand... I couldn't be more excited!


I want to be clear through this process that the confidence and vision for this entire project were both given to me by God. He is the ultimate reason why and how I am able to share this with you all with such passion. Diving deeper into my relationship with Him allowed me to understand what I am capable of.
I invite you to join me, along with many others, on this life-long journey and commit to yourself. We are transforming our lives by transforming our mindset one step at a time.
