Sometimes I forget I’m ME. I see myself in a different light than others do, that is what humility is because deep down inside I know God has a greater purpose for my life but I forget sometimes. I am blind most times. It’s a chilling thing to be chosen or to atleast FEEL that way…I know God is real because he made me different from most and I feel him in all of my talents and unique characteristics, just speaking to me and assuring me that it’s ok to be different. Encouraging me to pursue him and blossom in the midst of my flaws and adversity. I am here. We are here. We exist for a reason because we remember the hundreds of young lives who were savagely taken from us too soon, but God kept us here. Pursue your personal legends and ambitions like never before, we wouldn’t want the Lord thinking that we’re wasting his time…

Thank you Bessie Coleman, you didn’t perpetuate the stereotypes white people had for blacks, you were an opportunist and you sought and conquered success despite the POWERS that ignored you and WOULD NOT HELP. Lord Jesus I feel you speaking to me, sometimes you have to travel across oceans and countries to get what you want. Bessie understood she wouldn’t find her creative desires in Atlanta Texas, SHE NEW SHE HAD TO LEAVE. She even knew to leave Chicago and seek FRANCE. Sometimes you feel it in your soul. God or fate tugging on you. Bessie we share that same determined and wild heart. I will forever be motivated by you.
