Before the millions. Before the book deals. Before the scientific breakthrough. Before the record deal, there should be love. Not just love for your craft, which is obviously very important. To imagine and then create, there has to be a motherly attachment; a unconditional love where no matter what you will keep growing and cultivating what you gave birth to.
The love of the craft is essential, but even more is self-love for the creator of the craft. Loving Yourself. If you notice that you’re speaking praises about your accomplishments and dreams but ridiculing yourself, the person that made does dreams and accomplishments happen there is a disconnect. The beautiful project that took blood, sweat and tears to complete was started by a more beautiful person.
So my beautiful ambitious queens, on those hard days where your endeavors feel grand but your opinions of yourself or not, remember that you have too much beauty for you to lack anything. That you are intelligent, competent and capable of everything that you are doing and will do in life; you just have to believe it yourself before the world can.
