On Monday during my meditation hour, I remembered the words of a Queen Mother Elder who, along with her children, loved me and journeyed with me through my teen and young adult years. Ms. Bernice Snell, a wise and fierce lover of God, shared her personal stories and proverbs with me. I sat on the floor, always eager to listen, and soaked it all in.
“You are a Designer’s original,” she said often, “You won’t ever fit in because God has called you to stand out. You’re different and you’re always going to be different because God has something for you to do.” The replay of this memory was so real that I could see her face. I felt the same vibrational leap that surged through my body as a teenager.
Sixteen years later, I offer you this liberating wisdom: You are a Designer’s Original! Take off the restraints. Be. Love. Create—as only YOU can!
