“Shaun, own your life! Own it!” was the last thing I wrote in my journal entry on May 27, 2019.
Now, here we are four years later.
Y’all, I really am proud of everything I have accomplished thus far. I often feel like I am behind until I take a trip down memory lane. My list of accomplishments is quite extensive. The difference between me and the people I have been comparing myself to on social media (being transparent) is that they share their achievements and I hide mine. I keep mine hidden because I don’t want it to seem like I’m bragging. Even when I had my office on campus, I never displayed my awards or degrees. I have military accolades that are still packed away. Even some of the positions I have held, aren’t on my resume. Y’all, I even find it hard telling people I was in a doctoral program for two years. I didn’t complete it… or haven’t completed it yet–still on the fence about it–but I did it.
It’s time for me to take that advice I gave myself four years ago– Own it! Haaaa… why do I hear my fav, Tyler Perry, saying, “Own your stuff!”
Year 50 loading…
Thank you for reading. Wishing you a peaceful day!♥️
Had to add this gem! Went and found Tyler’s speech. Y’all, he gave the speech on June 23, 2019; however, BET shared it on June 24, 2019….. MY BIRTHDAY!!! Yes, I’m screaming! Gotta love life. Tyler Perry’s BET speech. Let’s call it, Own Your Stuff.
