#TRUTHBOMB ✨This week, many of you witnessed my dream come true! #GimmeMo – a project I started 8 years ago – premiered on @discoverylifechannel and I am SO PROUD. • • But, I’m also this. I’m the girl at the gym hiding my tears behind my sweat and trying my best to keep it together! See, what people don’t tell you is this. Doing your own thing is HARD. It challenges the core of you. It puts a strain on your relationships, your finances, your faith. It makes you question your very existence….your competence….your will. Will you crumble in the face of adversity. Will you face your shortcomings with humility and grace. Will you show up even when you feel overwhelmed and burdened – which happens to be often • • For me, living the Dream isn’t just photo shoots and accolades, it’s crying on my closet floor, pleading with God to “make it go away” asking for strength, but really just wanting to be saved. It’s being grateful and feeling broken all at the same time • • This is the true face of a warrior. We cry in the wings, fight in the dark, and make it look easy when we’re on the field. It’s not easy fam + I care too much about young people to perpetuate that lie. • To all my dreamers + doers, this is a reminder that wherever you are in your journey YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I see you. I feel you. I am you & I love you! Now, let’s wipe our faces and get back out there 💪🏾
