Introducing myself and my journal: The Genius in Me
I'm extremely clumsy and sometimes I come across as a space-cadet. Whenever I inadvertently say or do something really goofy or off-balanced, I say, "That's my genius coming out!"
Sometimes I'm really mentally sharp. Sometimes the most basic things go right over my head. At my age, I've come to accept it as just a personal trait of mine that doesn't diminish who I am. It's been a long journey to that point, however.
I feel like I've lived 10 lives in just the 41 years I've been on this earth. I was abused by my father as a child. As a young adult I entered an abusive relationship but put myself in therapy to end it when I realized I was living the life of my mother. I paid my own way through college at American University, in DC. There I realized I had no voice as I was raised to be seen and not heard as a child.
I overcame that but then became complacent for the next 10 or so years. I never finished what I started. As I came close to the age of 40, I realized that I didn't want to live a life of regret and overcame my fear of failure to complete simple stuff - write and produce my own music and work hard on my business.
Here I am...still overcoming my fear. This time I think I'm afraid of success but I'm willing to face it head on. I already know it's just a smoke screen. That's why I recently decided to create short videos featuring courageous people from around the world risking their lives for peace, justice, equality and democracy. I just completed my first one last week featuring Kimberely Motley. She's such an inspiration. OK. That's all for now.
