My favorite actionable is to create, inspire by giving back to my community and motivate myself by revisiting dreams that I wrote down to push them forward with new information acquired. Music also plays a huge role in this because you need tunes to bop, dance or recite to be in the mode of working at least for me. The story or journey of elevation came from accepting things I couldn't change, accepting my unconventional methods that no one understands until I add the final piece to the puzzle and being able to stand alone but working better and smarter with my team. As many may experience I too am so accustom to doing things on my own; that asking for assistance is an after thought. However, it is so imperative to ask when necessary as the help can alleviate you from a task and open up free time. Having and building a solid team is a key to a strong foundation. Wherever you lack they pick up and when you need honesty they let you know what is or isn't working. Many read books from the front to back or back to front. I suggest read the room. However, meet people where they are today as they are introduced to you. Stay in the moment of the present it is what matters along with your faith as small as a mustard seed.
So if I were to be presented an award this is how it would be. (Ahem) This week has been a blessing. I am forever grateful for stepping out on faith and utilizing my versatile skills that I have acquired over the years to be in the Harlem's Fashion Row creative forum. Brandice Daniel you have resurged the light in many with your wisdom and expertise. The Harlem's Fashion Row Designer Retreat has been peace, collaborative and enlightening. To the winners of the competitions, kindred creative spirits and to the entrepreneurs whose stories we heard; THANK YOU. You deserve inspirational and motivational credit in the path of what will become of ideals and support. The world needs your talent, creativity and for you to tell your story through your journey. (no typo - intended to be read just as it is typed) --> My heart is soul full. (Applause) Ok let me hurry up before they cue the music. GOD IS GOOD! Much gratitude to my family, friends who have been extensions of family, my willingness to learn and resilience as self worth was honored in the legacy of my grandma's strength. THANK you, You and YOU!."
