Dreamers, Diversity, and Doing It God's Way

Is anyone else a dreamer like me?

Yes? Ok, cool. Well listen up.

As dreamers, it’s important to practice self-care so that you can protect yourself and your dream. So, I’ve been pretty much silent on IG for the last few weeks with the intention of eliminating stress and burnout. ⠀

In the midst of a very busy season at work and running this magazine, I started to lose my joy. I was feeling the weight of the work and resentment started to creep in. I don’t know about anyone else, but having a full-time job and a dream project can be exhausting at times. It’s not just about attending glitzy events or speaking on panels, it’s about doing the hard work 100 percent of the time.

I needed to remind myself of why I was doing this and spend time with the Dream-Giver, God.

So, if you’re feeling the weight of your dreams or struggling in a season of not-there-yet, don’t just remember your WHY, call on your WHO!

God is faithful to answer and not just lift the burden but also carry you through doors only He can open. That was the case a few weeks ago when I was interviewed for a new YouTube show on Diversity and Inclusion. I had the opportunity to share about my dreams as a kid, my faith, the magazine, and some of the incredible and diverse women who have joined us on this journey.

Hopefully, it will inspire you to step out in faith to pursue your dreams and not give up.
