Give me the credit when it’s due, but you can keep the exaltation and praise

I could never take the place of God, nor would I have it any other way

People are quick to place you in a position, that’s greater than ones wants and needs

But, I’m not above anyone else, so lower your pedestal and bring me down please

There seems to be a misconception, surrounding my identity

I’ve been “branded”, “labeled” and “stereotyped”, but none of it is a reflection of me

The center of your focus should be my work, so please pay the woman no mind

I don’t want the fame nor exposure, I’m anointed, I ALREADY shine

For the people who “think” they know all about me, you have no clue of my situation

And for those of you yet to know me, I hope this offers you some clarification

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Writefully yours,

Get into character

They’re watching you! They want to know all about you, so they see and record your every move. However, what you don’t see, is them. Every where you go, someone is there. Everything you do, someone sees it. Your life is a movie reel, and people are tuned in, waiting for you to bring the drama, so they can bring their opinions. How you act, determines your critics review of you. They want to see if you are a blockbuster or just another flop. Your image is very important, and you should always portray yourself in a way that others find you intriguing and not misleading.

Don’t ever pretend to be something that you’re not, just so you can win people over! Who cares about the award if the performance wasn’t real!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
