Perseverance is a beautiful thing. Defying all odds and rising to the occasion is truly admirable. It’s easy to throw in the towel…but, to push through and face your fears head on requires gusto and determination. On Saturday, January 26, 2019, I had the opportunity to debut my brand, IamBrandeeNicole. I had all these preconceived notions about what to anticipate and how the audience would receive me. When I walked through the doors, I left all of that behind me. I prepared for that moment and did all the required legwork to make it a success. I realized that it was my moment and how I chose to handle it made all the difference. As I reminisced about everything I have been through over the years, it helped me realize that the good and bad experiences shaped and molded this queen. I owned that platform as if I did it many times before. It is not where you’ve been, as it is so much more about how you bounce back. You stumble and fall, yet you get back up and try again. To get a better understanding…recognize that there are so many people waiting for you to bring forth something that is so unique and necessary. Only you can deliver and execute the way you do. Many can emulate, but remember there is only one YOU! Although this musical selection is not an identical depiction of my story, it figuratively and metaphorically reminds me of my grind and the inability to quit. I am a queen, unlike any other, riding the rhythms of my own soul and staying true to self. I hope you appreciate this song as much as I do. I have arrived! Check out the chorus….it speaks volumes!
(Listen) see where she came from
Many people find it hard just to hang on
You often find them in the same place complaining
Instead of finding a better way of maintaining
She could have balled up and cry
Wished that she would die
And just gave up on tryin'
Instead she grind from the bottom
Just to make it to the bottom now she's on top and she's flying
