Day 30 | Commitment to Self

Do something daily that's good for your soul. Whether it be a phone call home, swaying to the sounds of Jhene Aiko, volunteering at the shelter, or a walk around the block in the cool breeze and hot sun.

Cultivating true friendships and healthy relationships with people who seek you as often and as readily as you seek them.

Rid yourself of things that do not serve you, things that do not align themselves with your vibe or the life you are trying to lead.

Be patient with your life path. Rome was not built in a day, neither is your future. Find peace with that. Find joy in the unknown.

Continue to love you.

episode 3 | Shalom "Sha'Lil" Little

"Love Notes" is back with a vengeance! If you frequent this blog, you may be aware of some of the hiccups I've had to endure with this little dream of mine, but a lot has changed since holding a fundraising campaign via Indiegogo. I've acquired at least one of the bare essentials I need to do this project solo dolo and thus, now have new content for you guys! Shalom was a great subject to start with because he didn't mind my awkwardness when trying to set up my equipment or that I lured him into an alleyway to shoot.

From here on out, I plan to post videos twice a month, on the 1st and 14th for the sake of consistency in producing content. Thanks to everyone who donated, you guys rock: Jane of Always With You, Jessica of the Jessica L Blog, and various members of my family. Thanks to everyone who spotlighted me to give me more eyes, I really appreciate you: Vett of Real College Student of Atlanta and GG of All the Many Layers. And thanks to the people who have voiced their support and who follow along, watching the show, it means the world to me to read your words of praise and to know that I've inspired you simply by going out there and seeking to create.

"Episode 3 of 'Love Notes' is centered around self love featuring student and rapper Gulliermo Smith aka Shalom "Sha'Lil" Little, his definition of love and self love, how it has improved his life, and the moment self love became significant to him and his growth. Thank you for sharing your light and wisdom on the subject."
