Wake Up & Take Off Your Dang Mask!

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

Alright, Honeybuns! It's time we had a real talk, a family meeting of sorts. Don't come for me even though, I'm here to shake things up a bit. It's high time we shed these masks we've been hiding behind, these facades we've been so expertly crafting. Yes, my loves, it's time to be unapologetically, undeniably, unashamedly YOU. The real you, not the one you've been showing off just to keep up with the Joneses, the celebrities, or whoever's trending on the 'gram.

Let's keep it one hundred, some of us have been living a lie so convincingly, we could give Denzel a run for his money. You have become so good that you don't even know who you are for real. We've layered on so many roles and expectations that we've become about as unique and unpredictable as a rerun of "The Cosby Show."

Take a look around. We've got people painting these Instagram-perfect lives, but behind the filters, their dreams are as broke as a busted radiator. We've got couples who can't stand the sight of each other but are sticking it out because... well, who knows why? For appearances? For tradition? Child, please.

And let's not even start on the workaholics, popping Motrin like Skittles just to get through the day. Baby, do you even know what that's doing to your liver? But hey, who cares about health when there's a paycheck involved, right?

And then there are those of us who are still chained to our pasts, so weighed down by guilt that they can't even see the brilliance of their present and future. Or those trapped in toxic relationships because they've been taught divorce is a one-way ticket to hell. Can I get an amen?

We have people tiptoeing around their feelings, too scared to express themselves, dreaming big dreams but too scared to chase them. Why? Because someone in their circle said it was a bad idea? Since when did we give others the power to dictate our lives?

I feel like Spike Lee in "School Daze," just itching to scream, WAKE UP! Let go of all that negativity, that self-doubt, that fear. Start believing in yourself. Have faith not just in your creator, but in you. You owe it to yourself, and to the world, to be the best version of you that you can possibly be. And that starts with taking off that damn mask and stepping into your authentic self. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get to it!

Until Next Time!!!

Peace, Love & Kisses,
