Congratulations to Ann Ellison, winner of Jodie Bailey’s latest release. I will be in touch, Ann.
Today’s blog post was created after reading some of Maya Angelou’s poetry. I’m so grateful for those who came before.
I won’t allow my life to be defined by:
1) what someone did or didn’t do FOR me,
2) what someone did or didn’t do TO me,
3) what someone did or didn’t say ABOUT me,
4) what someone did or didn’t GIVE me.
Good or bad.
In the past, whenever someone didn’t recognize my worth, I worked myself into a frenzy in the hopes they’d value me. Then I realized that their ignorance shouldn’t be my starting point.
My starting point began eternities ago. My starting point began when God imagined my existence. And to God, my existence was very, very good.
That’s when I learned to do what Maya Angelou said and “dance like I had diamonds at the meeting of my thighs”. Because diamonds dwell in me. And they dwell in you too.
