A few years ago, a dear friend of mine recently came up to me, congratulating me on Imperfectly B, and stated, “I wish I knew what I was meant to do like you do.” Y’all. Our purpose is already within us, but we just have to do some self-reflection and consider what it may be.
I was blessed to know mine at an early age, and others do too. However, some, like my friend was, may be struggling to find what theirs is. There are a few simple questions you have to ask yourself. I break it down in an #ImperfectChat video with some guided bullet points to help you out!

Today’s Words of Wisdom are from actress Meagan Good and it falls in line perfectly with this comparison demon that a lot of us face regularly.
In this clip, Meagan talks about not comparing her journey to other people’s and refusing to get upset when her life doesn’t go as planned.”I’ve just fixed my mind to say, ‘What’s for me is for me and no one can take it from me. And what’s for someone else is for someone else,” she shared. Continue reading “Words of Wisdom: “What’s For You Is For You”-Meagan Good”
Today’s Words of Wisdom comes from motivational speaker Inky Johnson. He’s really become a favorite of mine in the past year or so!
In this clip from one of his speaking events, Inky talks about how any growth that we want to achieve in our lives is going to take more from us. More sacrifice. More discipline. More drive. More commitment. It’s going to take the sacrifice of the old person that you were.

When I tell y’all, I FELT this Words of Wisdom clip from comedian KevOnStage. I just had to share it with you guys.
KevOnStage first shared this video a couple of years ago and reposted it recently. In the clip, he talks about how people can be entitled and feel that they deserve more than they’ve actually worked for. As a comedian, he has put YEARS into his craft and has just recently become popular in the past few years. Yes, sometimes people blow up overnight, but often people who seemingly have risen up out of nowhere have put in major work behind the scenes for a long time to get there. You deserve what you’ve really worked to make happen. It’s not just going to fall in your lap because you’ve been working at it for a short time.
It’s a real sentiment. You deserve nothing that you didn’t put in the work to create. AND, even with your hard work and sacrifices, it doesn’t mean that things will pan out for you right away. I’m a living witness to that. I’ve been writing for YEARS. Literally since college, so it’s been a little over a decade. I’m just now getting new and better opportunities. And I still have a ways to go. It all takes time, persistence, perseverance, and GRIND.
