Well let me be the first to tell you that in order to soar with eagles you gotta get away from the crows! I had to learn the hard way that sometimes you have to separate yourself from the things that you want in order to have the things that you need. It's hard as hell to cut things, people and places off in order to be propelled into your destiny. It takes hard work and dedication not even just in the craft you are emerging yourself in but the same goes for staying away from those things, people and places that weigh your wings down!
Most recently I finished/published my very first selfcare journal. I'm already working on a revision because I see so many other things that I could incorporate into the next edition. I wanted the first one to be simple yet impactful. I want the reader to see themselves on every page so that their story can be told in order to help themselves or at least guide them to the areas if selfcare they are in need of. Journals don't need to be workbooks! Which was the hang up on me getting this done. I was under the impression that I needed something big and extravagant with big words and such. Uh no...that's not what God told me to do!
That made me think back to my walk. God is a simple yet amazing God that gives us everything we need. We make things complicated when they don't have to be. Once we put our grimy little hands in the destiny pool without adhering to what we're being told to do..we compromise our own destiny. Obedience is better than sacrifice. A scripture I will NEVER forget as long as I live. Obviously I'm not free from sin and I don't always do the church thing...but what I do know is when God gives you a whooping because you ain't ackin right...you get in line with what's supposed to be happening.
Soaring into your destiny is not going to be all pretty either! You got to get ugly in order to get to work. The "shine" is off you individually so the glitz and glam will be seen on the perfect work you're putting out. You will lose some people along the way. I know...you thought everyone would be happy for you and they would all support your destiny. Sooooo...yea they won't. I'll just go ahead and say what they won't. Not everybody in your circle is rooting for you. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it is what it is. You will build an entirely new circle or many circles. Circles that are composed of your supporters. And....yes they will be strangers! Remember you're soaring into your destiny. Just like when a plane has too much weight and you gotta shift the luggage or throw some shit off the plane to survive...that's what it looks like when you are soaring into your destiny! Drop deadweight so you can soar!
I, of course, would LOVE if you ordered my very first published selfcare journal either for yourself or as gifts! Here's the link:

Remember that you too are being propelled into your destiny so you can soar. The question is will you be weighed down and unable to move or will you soar like the eagle you truly are? Only you can answer that!
