#BLE Day 1 - Childhood me would think adult me is the sh*t!

Hey y’all! Joi here. I came up with this idea this morning…yes..this morning. I wanted to share what I’ve learned during year 28..and what better way to do it, than making it a collaboration with the brand. So welcome to day one of the 10 day series, Big Leo Energy!

So not only will I be sharing what i’ve learned, I’ll be dropping a tee that resonates with each lesson and message. Today’s lesson, I used a tweet by Ebonee Davis as a prompt, the tweet reads: “Childhood me would think adult me is the shit! That’s all that really matters”

As a child I was very sure of myself. I knew who I was, what I wanted and I was gonna get it. I was a little hustler that just knew my life would be grand. I would often say how I would have a personal driver because I didn’t want to drive and how I was gonna be a boss (crazy how my younger self really knew I wouldn’t care for driving). I don’t have a driver just yet, but we’re working on it.

Anyway, back to my younger self. She was awesome, still quiet, but smart af, creative af, and honestly, her fits?! Poppin. Even though I lost sight of my younger self over the years. Year 28 really allowed me to get back in touch with her, re-parent her, and do things she enjoyed. While I might not be where I want to be yet, I know my younger self would be proud. I’m living such a boss life! I always knew I would live a life or make a life for myself being creative..and that’s what I’m doing.

Year 28, I got back to doing what I wanted to do without caring about what others thought, and it’s the best. It’s liberating. We aren’t put here to do things to please the masses, our parents, or anyone close to us. We’re put here to be the best and most truest version of ourselves. I believe that’s when we are most in alignment and being of service to those around us in the way we are meant to…I believe that’s when our cup is full…when we are authentically ourselves.

So yea…childhood me would think i’m the shit. I’m back to doing me…back on my bs if you will. Really on some Big Leo Energy. I’ll end this by saying. I’m content, but not complacent. It’s easy to get caught up in where we think we should be, without taking the time to appreciate where we are. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You out here, you good, you poppin. Rest. Celebrate yourself..but also, keep going. Keep your foot on the gas, we got places to go and your younger self is in the passenger seat rooting for you.

Be Great,

Joi aka Madam Yatir
