I’m not really someone who fans-out when a company or brand likes my photos or follows me. Over the years it just sort of becomes “normal”. I don’t know how else to describe it without sounding like a prick but that’s just how it goes when you’ve been creating content for over a decade. Now that I’m on this new chapter, trying to garner new content and really just working with my head down without any expectations, it’s really cool to see the brands and establishments that I admire take notice. I really feel like I’m starting all over again. Starting from scratch, rebranding, re-creating and rebuilding a better version of myself and my work. I’ve been giving so much of myself lately through all of the content I’m producing and haven’t really had a chance to check in with myself and acknowledge the fact that I’ve done more over the past three months than I have in the last two years when it comes to engagement through social outlets. This is by far the most exposed and vulnerable I’ve ever allowed myself to be; so when I get little hints from the universe that I’m on the right path, it just confirms my beliefs that I need to be true to myself and true to what it is that I want to create in this life. I refuse to work on projects or create work that only serves as a vessel for financial gain. From here on out, it’s all about spiritual gain and tapping into powers that allow me to add beauty and purpose to this world. If you live true and do good, everything else will follow.
