All things that look and sound good aren’t good. Lots of times we get caught up in what things may look like and forget to see what is really going on. I am so guilty of this! As long as it looked good, I figured it was okay. I was making Royalty Mindset look good and not actually doing any work. All things looked good but lacked substance and without substance we have nothing! This can go beyond just me and Royalty Mindset. I don’t ever want to look good with anything but truly lack substance. I don’t want to be hollow! In all things I want to truly be whom it is that I am making myself to look like in a positive light. I don’t want to be the one that #Slays every Sunday, but lacks a personal relationship with God. I don’t want to be the one that posts how I am a college student and adds pictures of my books to my Snapchat story and fails every class. I don’t want to have writer and blogger in my bio and not be able to tell you the last time I posted a new blog post. I just want to #BeTheImage! I know I’ve been on this #BeTheImage thing for a while, but I still have not mastered it. I have to constantly remind myself to really be who I am portraying myself to be.
I had to stop and think of everything I was doing and doing with Royalty Mindset. Truthfully, it was nothing! All things looked good, but really no work was being done. Yes, I just uploaded pictures at an event, but where was the real work in that? My main aim of Royalty Mindset is and has always been to “Inspire and encourage others by sharing the voice God has given me.” It was fun and a great honor to be a part of that event, but that’s not my assignment. I am here to write and share the voice. I got so caught up in selling shirts, taking pictures, and doing events that I neglected the basics. The bases of Royalty Mindset are writing and blogging, so let me get back to the basics! All of those other things are add-ons, but without a strong base, that will all come tumbling down. This is simply a reminder to not get caught up in the looks of things or lack substance, a reminder to #BeTheImage, and a reminder to get back to the basics!
