Last night I met up with Team AV, a great group of people who I consider my friends and my creative partners. We decided to have our meeting at a Thai restaurant located in downtown Orlando and I enjoyed every bit of the conversation and the food. As the meeting progressed through the night I started speaking to the group about doing things now and not later. We are not promised another five to ten years so live now. This was brought up because of my decision to leave Orlando.
Orlando will become my part-time home and I will be here for our events and other responsibilities that I have in the city. My team and I will continue to network, work and collaborate with other creatives in the industry throughout the rest of this year. We are growing on many levels here but our sight rests beyond the stars. We have been working extremely hard at our crafts as individuals and we want nothing more than to be able to create openly and frequently.
Many people have questioned me about this decision and even though it wasn’t the simplest decision it had to be made. I am the son of a female minister/prophet/evangelist who raised me in the Church but never forced “Church” into my life. She brought me up, showed me the way and then allowed me to follow my own path. That path brought me down many roads until I finally hit the wall and felt cornered in, with no way out. I had no idea how to release the pain or confusion I was feeling and felt alone in my bubble. I would climb the wall, slip off and then fall flat on my face. I’ve seen my finances skyrocket and lose it just as fast. I’ve felt like I’ve acquired the perfect friends and relationships and then realized I still felt alone. But through it all I had an understanding that I would make it through whatever storm I was faced with.
Over the past three years I’ve been having a spiritual/artistic growth spurt and like all spurts I had to make quick adjustments. Because I am a believer in the positive flow of things I also must recognize the negative within. My art and my words are from life lessons and blessings, my highest moments and lowest. This past year I have been in a constant battle with myself trying to attain a missing link. I would have parties, showcases and would uplift others but forgot the man in the mirror. I lost the connection with myself and therefore my art, words and energy came to a halt. My dreams became mundane and everyday my job actually became work. I would receive constant emails on Facebook asking me if I was ok. Asking me what happened to my positive updates. But it’s hard to remain positive when you are slowly slipping into darkness. Who am I? I am human with human issues but what makes me different from most is that I have the courage to change my present reality. I understand the principles of life and can teach them well but had my own struggles walking the walk. So I had to go through another “purging” process.
In a short period of time 2011 has been about personal growth. I am not a preacher, priest or saint and really don’t need those responsibilities. Who am I? I am growing. I do feel as if I was placed here to help or inspire others that I come into contact with. The realization that my happiness and destiny resides within, allowed this shift to transpire. My mind, body and spirit, were off centered, off frequency and now I am tuned in. The message that I have received has caused me to want to spend more time with my kids, travel the world and be inspired so that I may inspire others. Business is at a new high and it’s time to fly. AV the book has also gone through a metamorphosis, moving past being a pictorial magazine into a book of my thoughts, art, AV fashion and energy. My new sense of self will carry me to places that are still unknown to me but are already accepted. Am I running away, no. Who am I? I am determined. Some of you might think that this positive energy talk is just talk. The reality here is thinking positive will manifest positive things. The more I felt negative the darker I became. So now is the time to spread love, light, and positive energy to everyone with everything. I no longer have the desire to fight, argue or even complain about nonsense with anyone on a personal or business level. When you gossip or talk negatively about an individual you are allowing those same negative words to accumulate and come right back to you. Understand what life is really about and start living it. Wake the heck up and start making steps towards your desired designation. Shed your tears, purge your pain and grow. Start forgiving yourself and others around you so that you can experience proper growth. You were given the tools to create your tomorrow so become a builder and build.
So after saying all that. I will be moving to Atlanta and traveling to many sites such as Boston and New York as much as possible returning to Orlando and my office here monthly. I will be shooting in Africa, London and the Caribbean for AV the book all in 2011. I will be in Canada with my three-year-old son as much as possible to strengthen our bond and will be in Miami with my beautiful princess as well. I was recently asked how I could leave the state and Country with all the recent TV hype and exposure I’ve been receiving. For those of you who are asking, it boils down to one thing, happiness. Who am I? I am a traveler and I will be happy doing it. I have found the light and I am walking towards it.
