204- Nightly Motivation 2

I know I can’t be the only one who constantly thinks about their dreams and future goals, and think about how unattainable they seem sometimes. Tonight, though, I made sure to remind myself of those specific things, and I really let myself envision having them. If it was meant to be easy to achieve, it really wouldn’t be worth much. So, guys, as you lay on your pillows tonight and think about your future, try not to be afraid. Your dreams will come true as long as you believe and work towards them! Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Viola Davis, and the greats like them didn’t have it easy at all, but they pushed forward past all of the obstacles and became names that we will never forget. Trust in the process! Trust in yourselves! The journey is necessary, and like Yvonne Orji says: “the wait is sexy.”

Good night.

143- Who Am I?

Out of all of the books that I have read so far, all of the authors say to ask myself “Who am I?” I mean, I ask myself this question and I’m not sure on what the answer is. They say that who we think we are is dictated by our history, which is our identity, but not who we really are. I was watching an awesome interview between Oprah and India Arie, and Arie said something that struck me. She said: “You do not have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” She left me speechless. I don’t think that I have ever thought of myself as a soul. The whole idea, or truth as it seems to be, is life shattering, but why don’t I feel it?

So I have asked myself this question more than I ever have in my life over the last couple of weeks, and I still haven’t come to any conclusion, or had any life altering epiphanies, but I thought that I’d throw this question out there to you guys. Who are you?

Have a great night. Look out for future posts!
