Anger and patience, a study of action and actualization

Anger and patience, a study of action and actualization

My best friend yelled at me last week, a little. She spoke the truth about some of my actions; about my breakneck life pace and some of my recent decisions. I am not mad at her — I expect that from her, and I love her for it. She was angry with me and for me because she is one of the holders of my stories and secrets — a true and trusted friend.

I sit here thinking about those actions and decisions, and I’m angry (at myself).

I've been developing "The Maven Principle" for myself and others to level up life power skills. And as I like to practice what I preach, I'm acting as a guinea pig in developing this workshop. I speak a ton on inclusive workplaces, diversity, personal development, and personal brand, and there are times when my own best practices, morning rituals, and healthy habits falter. I'm human just like anyone else, and there is a myriad of reasons we slip off our paths.

Our heroes are a reflection of our best selves. We model what we see in all our media, especially in our stories of might, good defeating evil, justice, joy, and even everyday life, where we all work to be the best humans we can be. Superheroes, comics, and tales of our shared history all reflect the full diversity of the human experience. Igniting more conversations, storytelling, and sharing what new developments make us all feel not so alone in the world, driving and inspiring us to be our most authentic selves. I couldn’t be more excited to continue the conversation from last year’s social justice, diversity, intersectionality, and belonging panel with this year’s fantastic group of artists.

You Better Werk — One Glittering Moment to Slay The Runway

I got up that morning thinking I was going to a doctor’s appointment. My thyroid is acting up again so I was Hashtag Adulting. The thing was, I also had a ticket to be in the live studio audience for the RuPaul show, a new talk show taping a three-week test to run on select Fox stations (New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Houston, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Charlotte).
