I’m super excited about the second half of this year! Every July for the past 9 years has been a pivotal month for my evolution on my journey towards freedom. Around this time in 2010, I was preparing to leave Louisiana to go to college. This is also when I started my spiritual journey awakening to my desire for freedom. The two summers that followed bought big changes for me with traveling, internships, and gaining independence getting my first apartments. In July of 2013 I started my journey with holistic health and I met my soulmate for the second time who is now my husband. In July of 2014 I started my career post college graduation. The July that followed I changed jobs while adjusting to being a first time mommy. In July of 2016 I earned a certificate and a promotion. This time was significant because I also had an awakening and knew that there was more for me than what society expected of me. July 2017 is when I embarked on a new journey in self love after shaving my head completely and Legend was conceived. In July of last year I declared the month “Just Freedom all July” as I was answering to my soul mission. I performed for the first time in Dallas and began growing my brand here. Each of these times were significant as they all helped me take a leap of faith, grow exponentially, and get closer to freedom.
Coincidentally I’ve been on my journey to freedom for the past 9 years and this July I will be giving birth to freedom in the spiritual and in the physical as I welcome my daughter, Freedom Elizabeth into the world. The number 9 symbolizes the completion of a cycle with the number 10 following and equaling 1 which symbolizes the beginning of a new cycle. I’m excited for who and what I am birthing as I bring this 9th year to a head. I’m hoping to close it out with “fireworks for Freedom”.
I’ve spent a lot of time over the past month focusing on my home life by paying attention to the needs of my family and preparing our home for our newest member. I’ve been taking time to heal trauma and my fears regarding birth with the help of my awesome birth team, my midwife, doula, and therapist. I also put efforts into redeveloping my brand, building courage to launch my new ideas, and create some of my best art. I limited my social media use, fasted, and learned to rest. I feel refreshed and confident that the next 6 months will be even better than the last and I’m praying the same for you! As you continue on your path to greatness, I hope that you find and create that spark to go forward and live a life of freedom and let go of anything that’s holding you back. I know you will, I believe in you!
