IMG_0008Sometimes we are so caught up in living life and trying to make sure we keep our heads above water that we over look the special things. I have come across so many people in the last 2 years that really want to see me win. Men and women the same, I get asked all sorts of questions about my journey as if I’ve made it. I’m always shook because I’m still in the crawling phase of my dreams. People come and they want me to mentor them and I’m like what?

I’m still trying to become the best version of me. I always feel like I’m in no position to give anyone any advice on life. But then my people come to me and I get messages saying โ€œKeep goingโ€ โ€œI hope I’m as fearless as you one day.โ€ I’ve had publishers reach out to get their hands on N I N E and I’m like Nah. I don’t think they see the vision. All I can say is I’m ridiculously grateful and I do more praying and thanking God than anything. Being in Atlanta by myself has taught me a lot about my resilience. When people see that you will go the extra mile for yourself, they tend to want to go the extra mile for you. I have probably told the story of how I got to Atlanta and why I believe it’s the best decision I could have ever made at least 100 times, but I plan to tell it 1000 more. I need the dreamers to understand that the dream doesn’t work unless you do.

I complain, I cry, I whine, I pout, I even want to give up sometimes, but I don’t. That’s what sets my dream a part from someone else’s. I’m not braggadocious, it’s not in my nature to even celebrate my accomplishments. That may be an issue for some, but me, I don’t see the point. I feel like that takes away from the grind. I’ll pull my head up at some point, but I just thank people sincerely and move forward. I’m not done. I’m not even close to done and I’m very aware of that. I know that this is only the beginning and I treat it like that. I always will.

Life as a creative can get so difficult it becomes draining. You begin to feel like everything you do is not good enough or that you would much rather be doing something more interesting. Stay down tilโ€™ you come up. As an artist, I believe that we possess the creative license to do whatever we please. But in the process, we must, absolutely must say thank you to those around us. To all my readers, thank you. To all my supporters, thank you. To all those that are waiting for the release of N I N E it is coming and I cannot wait just like you can’t. Above all, I thank God for the blessing to be able to reach all of your hearts with my words.

Lets make this thing shake. I can’t do it without you, not that I want to anyway.

With Love,

Storie Stone
