I'm not a social media guru. Most of the content I've ever produced somehow makes it way around the world fueled solely by the people I love. It's not uncommon for radio silence to make its way to all of my platforms--particularly when I'm exhausted from my day job.
Every now and then, however, I've learned that it's important to remember who I am, and why I'm here. Most of the time, that comes from being encouraged by something I've written or said.
Hearing and reading your own lessons learned does something. I can't quite put my finger on it, but sometimes, it's just what I need to keep moving forward.
How do I know this? I found a link today to a "Who is Cynae" video I did--something that I had totally forgotten about (shout out to one of my favorite cousins for doing his thing on the video editing).
If you're questioning why you even find the time and energy to keep what you do, I encourage you to grab your phone, hit that camera app, and record your "why." It may not mean too much to you now, but I guarantee when things get rough, and you feel like just giving in to the 9-5 trap of life, your words will spark something in you that will make you keep going just a little further.
Don't quit, ya'll. Keep creating.
