Once I started blogging, a year ago, I questioned what would be my motive and what message could I ultimately get across to the youth. After brainstorming for days, I knew for certain that I wanted to come up with a signature phrase. I wanted my phrase to be one that could give my audience a pure idea of how I continue to overcome many trials and tribulations. Although it took a minute, it suddenly came to my head (3 am in the morning) of how I have been successful thus far, no matter the challenges that were in gear to rob me of my full potential. Stand Up, Be Confident, And Move. I wanted to exhaust my thoughts, so I was not too sure to adopt this as my signature phrase, but nothing else seemed to fit. These 6 powerful words, combined, are my first and last statement that represents my brand. A year later, I am still inspiring, encouraging, and motivating everyone to stop insulting themselves, escaping their passion, and dismissing misery by just following the Stand Up, Be Confident, and Move method.
In life there will be a million and one things that are in store to knock you down. It is your job to swallow the pain and stand up in order to get where you need to be. Stand up against negativity, hatred, and sorrow. Stand up for positivity, love, and happiness. Standing up is the first step towards becoming a better you.
To be confident is to be favored. Having confidence in this world is rare because if you do not fit what society depicts as beautiful, successful, or intelligent then it will be hard for you to manage. Understand who you are as a person and never let anyone alter what makes you the person you are. Chin up sugars.
Prayer without performance just does not work efficiently. Stay on your game in order to move up on your personal ladder of success. Even when you fall you have to get up and move. The moment you become inconsistent is the moment you are giving someone else to steal your shine. Slow down for what?
I hope that my life experiences gives you the same inspiration to persevere, as it has been doing to those that I know personally.
Real Life Impact
Beautifully, as I opened my eyes this morning and scrolled through my Facebook’s timeline, a status from a young lady named Kierra Lizzimore instantly caught my eyes. Her status read:
I was told to stand up because if I stood up I would be able to fight any obstacles that came my way. Being down talked being knocked down feeling like you have no where to turn feeling like your back was against the wall is what I felt like, but I took the time to stand up. Confidence, I needed to be more confident with myself in order to find myself. I was lost and felt like I was not good enough for anything, that is college, or singing, or writing. I felt like my confidence level was below 0 and I was fighting with myself to believe that maybe I could be strong. Today, I am the most confident person in the world!! … I believe. I believe that I am so confident, [that] no one will stop me, at a all time high and I love myself [so] much. Move, I was told I couldn’t move because I didn’t have it in me. I was told I would
be stuck in one place and be a dummy all my life, I was told harsh things that made me feel as though well maybe they are all right, maybe I won’t ever move, maybe I will continue to do the bad things I do, maybe I won’t ever be good, why so many negative thoughts, but you know something? I prayed to god one night and told him I needed his hand to guide me, I wanted to move and guess what ? I Stood Up, I was full of Confidence, and I Moved! #TheseWiseWordsHelpedMe Stand Up Be Confident And Move
An Aspiring Writer
I write this all with the hopes to continue inspiring, but to mostly thank of all the supporters of my blog and dream.
To the writers, write with purpose; remember that someone is always reading your material. Whether you have 1 hit or 10 million hits, know that you have the power to spread positivity, choose your words wisely, for what you say can either build or breakdown someone who looks up to you. Remember the steps that it took you to get where you are. Use your skill to motivate in some sort of way, even if that is not your genre of writing.
To the readers, thank you all! I inspire you to continue reading, for this is what opened the doors for me, as I writer. I could never fully connect to what the writers before me had to say, so I figured I would share some thoughts myself. Never hesitate to express your thoughts as well. To me, everyone has a little writing within. Grammar should never be a barrier; I am still improving on that myself. Do not let anyone discourage you, write, do not only read.
