Some people will always view you in old lenses and be uncomfortable with your growth and evolution because they have not grown. Life is always changing for us to always go toward new potential, knowledge, self improvement evolution. For me this and has always been essential personally and professionally. That said, there will always be those who don’t believe or live that point of view seeing only an outdated version of you left behind.
You’ll have people discussing you who probably never knew the depth of you – let alone who you’ve grown into.
Undoubtedly the mentality or resistance is because of their own lack of growth and comfort of living in the rear view.
Keep growing and evolving, whether or not others understand, acknowledge or embrace – just keep living to be your new best self as long as there is life – not settling on the you of days gone by.
A bit of motivation and inspiration for you .. yes these are challenging times, pandemic, unemployment.. there’s a contentious election, division, social inequalities, the list is long – but guess what?? We are here and alive – Live YOUR LIFE, no matter what’s going on.
If you are spending a lot of time online complaining about politics and aren’t being paid to do so stop to consider if that energy is helping you do what you need to do to make your life better, change your circumstances. My purpose is always wrapped in reminding you of the possibilities, the up side to keep you encouraged about life not to be down in life and your well being. As a person that is self employed, a total work stoppage of live music would do nothing for me to get online and complain or be discouraged by all of the divisions, attempts at voter suppression and beyond. What I’ve done in put my focus on creating new opportunities for myself in business. If you can’t change the circumstances such as the pandemic – change the way you are thinking or dealing with it.
After we vote and yes I hope Trump is voted out in terms of the national election — there is still life ahead, life is happened NOW — So STOP doing these things;
Life can be tricky and people can be shady – not wanting you to succeed, be happy or see you shine. We experience these things in so many ways. I’d have to say as a woman constantly navigating efforts to undermine, devalue and marginalize efforts and achievements can be frustrating and tedious but as I wrote a while ago “The beat don’t stop..”

Sensuous and calming – The fragrance will be available soon in my limited edition store :: jodywatleyshop.com along with the candle which just went live in the store last week!
You can also use this as a body spray as well.
It’s always good to create a peaceful interior environment that also smells good too – longtime must haves for me and so it feels natural to be able to expand into this lifestyle area of wellness for you all to enjoy – in addition to other Jody Watley branded items I have available. Throughout my adult home life, and career travel, backstage in my dressing room – candles and interior sprays have been a staple to create an environment that feels peaceful and smells good too. Growing up my son and daughter’s friends would always call our home ‘the peaceful house and traveling I’d always get that my room always made the hallway smell good and backstage at venues which are often not glamorous and unpleasant making me always travel with scents and candles that bring calm and peace.
To begin to bring this part of my passion to you now in these challenging times, to encourage you and be a part of creating greater peace and tranquility is very special.
