Dear Artist, walk out of that office and grab your dream

Some fall off the stage, like myself; some twerk and some have their nipples popping out. Audience reacts while performers' heart beats as if it were hit directly with steroids. The show, however, must go on. We can deal with the humiliation of crowds but not the shame showered down from those close to us.

The other day I was sitting in the shade with Webster, who shared a personal mantra, a goal of where he sees himself in a few years time. The details were thoughts manifesting themselves into reality as he covered every area of his life through this statement. There sat someone that understands himself and his vision. A vision - something that is easily said but rather challenging to come by. As I was listening to his wisdom sharing, I pictured myself sitting down and writing a similar declaration, of which I did not do once I got home. I arrived, thought about it, picked up my last born and went to my room for a lie-down and did some more thinking about this self-declaration and my laziness to write it. I remembered someone else, whose parents sat them down along with his siblings and asked them to envision their future by making a vision board.

The bible does say that our prayers cannot be answered if we are not specific and hence, it is very important to be specific. Also, I get daily messages of ‘do not tell everyone your dreams, desires or intents or do not share so much with your workmates’. The truth that really destroys me is one that says: ‘do not trust anyone’. It is so disappointing how vindictive people are by nature. Your own supervisor or someone you perceived as your compadre would stand by you when it is crunch time. If you keep quiet the same people complain that you do not speak to them, share your troubles. Confusing isn’t it.
