Fresh Start New Week. New Day. Your Own Path.

Jody Watley -Amsterdam - Live Capture

What I continue to learn is that it’s important to embrace the pace and authenticity of our own journey. We are on no one’s clock but our own. Not everyone will agree or be down with that but guess what – so what, it’s OK. We are not what other people are doing, not what others are thinking about us (cue: Don Miguel Ruiz The Four Agreements – Second agreement ‘Don’t Take Things Personally) definitely we are not to value ourselves on the the totality of social media likes and follows – the fluff many get caught up in. It’s easy to fall into that trap but don’t fall for it. We are all our unique selves. Embrace it. Own it. Carry on, and be prepared – some will resent the fact that you and simply living your life.

A perfect blend of classic soul disco meeting modern soul.

Fun video visuals by Shawn West featuring vintage footage of me as a teen during my stint on Soul Train.

 

 

Side note: To those who have wondered the BET series American Soul is not my story or Shalamar, they are fictitious characters and story-lines.

I love being able to give younger new talent opportunities in their journey – and as always meeting people who bring a positive energy is also beautiful as they are: Gabriella Garcia, choreographer/dancer Tevyn Cole, Lisa Rubi, Kayla Simone, Ameerah Thayer, Kendie Jones, Jasmine Boyes.
