i remember it like it was yesterday.
i was home alone,
on 2016 thanksgiving
had a chicken in the oven,
and decided to binge “insecure” on hbo.
i was late after all the social media chatter about it.
i became a hardcore stan by the end of that final scene in season 1.
you know what scene i’m talmbout.
every time i’m dealing with life shit,
issa rae knows exactly how i’m feeling.
sometimes i think i am like the character “issa”.
unlike my other friends,
it has taken me a minute to get my shit together with my insecurities,
and the fuckbois i tend to fall for.
issa finally dropped the trailer for the final season of “insecure” and…
i believe in the law of attraction and manifestation.
i’ve been working on “inside” by affirmations and therapy.
i think im in the midst of ascension and spiritual awakening.
it’s crazy how i’ve been thinking about doing a vision board again.
one of my creative heroes,
confirmed just how manifestation works on ig…
i’m “issa/season 3 of insecure” at this moment of my life.
at first i didn’t get where that season was going,
but these days,
i relate with it more than ever.
that last episode of the season,
she UN-packed and set up shit to start over.
we been waiting for this new season of “insecure“.
we been waiting for that like we waiting for rihanna to drop this damn album.
we like crackheads ya’ll..
the teaser dropped and well…
we all have giants that are blocking our blessings.
it could be crippling depression or anxiety,
the fear of not knowing where our lives are going,
or the insecurity of confronting a sexuality that we keep hidden away.
in order to get to the next level in our lives,
we have to either slay or tame these giants.
if you don’t,
they will kill you day by day.
a foxholer begged me to watch a web series on youtube.
i was putting it off for the longest,
but i’ve come to realize that when my soul is starving,
the universe will present something delicious at the right time.
the last couple of days was the right time.
the show was called “giants“…
*kinda spoiler heavy
i love insecure,
you know i do.
it’s the only show that i relate with real heavy.
one that i tell everyone from the mountain tops,
but tonight’s season finale for season 3…
one of the coldest places on earth.
the lowest temperature recorded was -133.6 degrees.
you couldn’t survive in that weather with 1,000 northface coats.
one of the coldest temperatures you could feel is being on the outside.
that place where you want to feel included with your peers,
but you feel like you don’t receive the same love that others get.
that place can feel colder than ice.
i was watching i was watching issa rae’s stories today…
