Find your niche

Standard

Pieces to a puzzle

You can call me jigsaw

Find the edges, fuck a frame

Defying Newton’s law

Lots of places, tight spaces

Working hard to find the fit

Expectations, limitations

Make it hard to submit

People saying I should settle

& give up the dream

Not counting on my mental

Girl doing big things

Talk all you want, cause I ain’t fronting

Been around long enough

Lioness been hunting

Killin’ it since ’89

Yeah boy, you know me

I may fail, I might fall

But I got that degree

& I would rather be starving

To know I have that hunger

Out on the prowl

Mark of a true hunter

 

Dreamboard

Standard

A couple years ago I found myself newly single, nearly unemployed, way overstressed, and basically depressed. I had just wrecked my car, my mac laptop had been stolen, and things were just not going my way. If it’s any inclination, I was affectionately called ‘Snicket’ for my series of unfortunate events.

Whenever I’m at a low point, I turn to creativity to take my mind off things and inadvertently work out my frustrations. I decided to make a collage of all the things I wanted for myself and came up with this Dreamboard… and weirdly enough everything came true in its own unique way. I hung it on the wall in my room and whenever I was lounging around or before I went to bed I would look at and know it was only a matter of time before I would obtain my goals. Sure enough, I began to see things fall into place little by little. I truly believe the best way to accomplish anything is to positively visualize it coming true. I know, it sounds kind of hokey but the more positive energy you put out, the more it will come back. Our words are powerful, which is why “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough” or “I’ll never make it” get no results.

For example, on my board I put a picture of a car with a little saying “A car for the person you set out to become.” For almost two years I was relying on public transportation and walking to get everywhere–including things like grocery shopping or getting to work. I knew I financially couldn’t afford buying a car, so I placed it on my Dreamboard. Sure enough, I ended up buying my car for $300 from a coworker who had just got a new car. Granted it needed some work, but instead of coughing up a huge sum of money at once, I was able to get it worked on over time and pay for it as I went. Now, it wasn’t like I made this board and things started instantly coming true, but within a year of making this board I finally had my own transportation–something I will never take for granted.

I’ve learned that I can plan thoroughly for the future, but life still has a way of surprising me. Instead of worrying, I try to take things a day at a time and think positively about my future desires and goals–and so far things have worked out pretty well.
