Try to slow me down.
All of this winnin’
Shining by DJ Khaled featuring Beyoncé and Jay Z
Today I want to dedicate this to co-founder of BrGOL and my sister-friend, Asia. We balance each other out in a really positive way and she is always here to remind me of my greatness. Today, she is embarking on new adventures and I want to quick remind her how great she is. I just know she will SHINE.
We realize how difficult it can be to own our greatness. We realize, we all need a reminder sometimes. We all need to be convinced we are great and deserving. We can’t see our glow from the inside, even though we feel it burning, it’s so hard to trust ourselves.
Even when we do, in some cases, other’s see it and want to dim the shine, making us feel like we shouldn’t be glowing at all. Our mission here is to make sure you know, you don’t have to make yourself smaller so that others can be more comfortable. They need to learn to be comfortable.
You don’t have to dim your shine to fit in. BE GREAT and BE PROUD OF YOUR GREATNESS!
This song is the perfect reminder to, not only shine but, ‘lose your mind’ in the greatness of that shine. Own it in such a way that it is undeniable and cannot be fucked with.
Be unfuckwithable today Brown Girls and SHINE!
Lose your minds and your spirits in your winning-ness! If no one told you yet:
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BE HAPPY!
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BE GREAT!
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO WIN!
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO SHINE BRIGHT!
We love you! Be who you are unapologetically. Step into your greatness and don’t let anyone try to slow you down today, this week, or ever.
