I fully believe that we should move forward through our lives as if there are zero limits to our abilities. We should first clarify that our abilities are our means and skill to do something. So, I am not saying that I can jump across buildings and slide down walls because my abilities do not include parkour. This is a reason that I believe it is super important for us to identify and develop our skills early in life. Art and Design continues to open doors for me. The sky is not the limit.

My youngest son is becoming a man. He is excelling in some areas, while I must push him and direct him in others. He is about to be 17 and this is the most difficult stage of parenting that I have ever experienced. He is an artist like me. A creative that can sew a custom hoodie one morning, jump down six flights of steps on his skateboard that afternoon, and dance like he floats on clouds doing air flares that night at a breakin competition. I’m heading into the last year of high school with a young man that thinks he has life figured out, that struggles asking for help (unless its for money, he has no problems with that), and seems to want to figure the world out on his own. One thing that I have learned from my own father is that parenting never stops, even when it is difficult. As hard as it is, I do understand that “It is easier to create strong boys than to repair broken men.”

Growing up in a 10-family household was interesting. Especially with 6 boys. We would always take more food than we could eat because with that many brothers there were never any second helpings nor left over food. So, when we would get full and still have food on our plate, we were made to sit there and eat it (unless you could convince a sibling to eat it for you). Mom would calmly say “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach. You are wasting food.” As a small business owner, I often treat projects the same. Clients offer money and in-kind rewards, and it becomes so hard to say no.

I have a lot of clients from my past that I still check on. I visit the old websites I designed looking for growth. I see if the brand has grown well. There are those that make me smile SUPER BIG! When I go to websites or social media pages and am unable to find any links to work that I either completed or assisted in the creation of, I do feel a way. I want growth for them all. I desire success for everyone. One that I have been particularly proud of is the Black Health Matters Movement. I remember talking with Rosalyn Daniels and hearing her lay out a plan of the whats, whens, and hows of Black Health Matters. It sounded like an enormous feat to even imagine. She spoke with confidence, and I knew that she had great experience from her background and existing network.

We had fantastic working sessions this weekend. Archiving footage and photos brought back beautiful memories. We saw people in our theatrical shows from the early 2000’s that have gone on to become actors, actresses, musicians, and wonderful souls who uplift those around them on a weekly basis. I came across video from the days we would travel to Atlanta’s Auburn Ave district and not only feed the homeless, but we would spend time, talk, and even pray with them. All things that I had some amount of fear and hesitancy prior to starting. They say that courage is knowing what not to fear.
