Stop Doing Things You Don't Like: Part One
What's going on tribe? In this special, two part episode I cover the makings of how I came to practicing and sharing, so passionately, my daily mantra, "Stop Doing Things You Don't Like". Nina Simone said, "It is the artist's duty to reflect the time." I believe we all are a bit frustrated in some aspect of ourlives that we didn't go after that one thing, and we will never know if we could have pulled it off. Many would say that's having a dream. 15 years is a long time to deny yourself the truth and respect you deserve to be happy. A lot of us felt like we had to fit inside some version of a box to make others happy or to convince ourselves that we should be even when there's something deep inside us that pulls us another direction. Part One is about my gradual shift from career to another career while I was just simply trying to figure out what else I might like other than art because I was taught and convinced so early in life, that despite my enjoyment of it, it was not a career path I should pursue. Part Two will bring us closer to where I am now in Houston in my art career but also what I have learned internally along the way.

When Burning Bridges Are Beneficial
I get it. You don't want to just walk out this job you already dont like because you are worried about not leaving properly... My whole thing is, if you hate it or even just don't like it, why do you care how you leave? Just leave. I think fear comes into play with this because we have been conditioned to feel dependent on someone else because we don't have trust and faith in our own abilities to succeed without knowing we have a safety net. Not that here is anything wrong with a safety net (lovingly known as a Plan B) but is it really a net, or a self inflicted trap to comfort when failure appears?

Transient Friends
Transient Friends are people that often come in and out your life, while we... well, experience life. Not everyone sticks around and sometimes some people cycle in and out several times. In this Episode I talk about how your heart tells you something does'nt feel right about a situation and often times a particular person.
