Yesterday I felt lost, so I went to the hills.
Okay so I was in really low point for me. So let me say that I have many ideas to bring me to success but when comparing myself to others I get stuck. Look, I’m an AmeriCorps worker, which means I’m constantly strapped for cash, but in return I work for such a beautiful mission and agency. It’s a daily battle, because while I do whats right for my community, I cannot help but wonder, should I do what’s right for my bank account. I’m stuck between success ideas, do I become mayor, or an aspiring rap artist, do I become a super model, or extreme activist/author, or create a gender neutral clothing line. My head exploded yesterday and I wanted to throw in the towel. I’ve been so fixated on this idea of “getting a bag” and in my mind it’s a bag of money, but my friend said that I have already snatched so many bags even if they are not full of money. I am moving to SF and will be living in a amazing neighborhood and AmeriCorps is supplementing my rent, BAG! I just got back from a trip to Italy that was covered by friends and family, BAG! I know I needed to look inwards, so I went to the woods yesterday in the middle of nowhere to disconnect and regather my thoughts. I’m moving to SF next month and then grad school next year, and those should be my worries, nothing else. Baby steps Gyasi, baby steps. Let me say that if anyone is looking for a model, or talented collaborations , HIT ME UP lol #watchgyasigo
