Love in surplus
I think I may have made some good connections with people in this community. Patty stands out most. I don't want to tarnish whatever image of myself I've projected.
But...I'm a very selfish man, so this exercise was easy for me. I feel that being selfish is a priority. You come first, then yours comes next, and finally comes mine. If you don't have a keen sense of self coupled with self ambition, then who are you? What do you, or better yet...what can you impart to others?
If charity begins at home, then self-preservation begins with you. Without love and appreciation of self you can't love and appreciate anything or anyone else. I've done things that I think a remarkable all things considered. With no formal training since 2009. I started writing for a local sketch comedy show. Where I also learned to direct.
I've since written for several publications, speeches for politicians, Ghostwriter on three independent films, and written over a dozen plays. Four of which I directed and executive produce. I'm friends with celebrities like Dave Chappell, Anthony Anderson, and Sheryl Underwood. All this is attributed to love of self, self-awareness , and self appreciation. I love me! Namaste 🙏🏾
