The night before my new site went live, I leaked my recorded spoken word “Some Nights…” to several girls who had been supporting me from the beginning of my process and journey towards this goal.
Many sweet comments were shared, but there was one in particular that truly encouraged me.
This girl encouraged me to not feel rushed to release more stuff, but to take my time. She told me that those who truly supported me would be patient enough to wait as I prepared myself for what was to come.
And even though my main concern that night was the website and spoken word dropping the next morning, I did realize that there was this unspoken pressure in the back of my mind that made me feel like I would have to continue to release pieces of mine sort of soon in order to stay relevant, to continue being a topic of conversation, and not just fall through the cracks.
But I would rather take my time in prayer, planning, and processing than throw stuff out there that wasn’t the same quality as the stuff I initially released. I am a perfectionist, after all.
Relief has swept over me through this sweet comment, and even though I do have a lot more work to do, I am more excited than nervous or fearful to continue working.
It’s back to the drawing board for me. But some awesome stuff is coming up, and I cannot wait!
But even with all of this excitement, I’m even more excited to take my time through this. To really embrace every portion of this process, and fall in love with working hard for where I want to be at the end of all of this.
Time to get to it!
