⚠️ Some people want to see you fail ⚠️ Some people want you to go away because they feel threatened. Some of them will support you to your face and then turn their heads and make you look bad to others. Some won't be able to stand seeing you go after your dreams and the truth is....

I'm here to say they're right - I've failed.
I've. failed. MANY. TIMES. When I was told I would never get far with a camera. When I was told my work sucked. When I worked really hard for a gig only to find out someone else "more qualified" got it. When I moved to Nashville, tried it out and left in a year. When people turned their heads and secretly smiled when they thought my business failed. I can go on for days here. The point I'm trying I make is that I could have failed and then just walked away defeated. Most people do. Most people believe that once they give it a shot and it doesn't go as planned that they did enough so they go back to their "safe plan". The reality is that there's a lesson to learn each time you get knocked down. You're given tests along your journey to prove your damn self. It's about how bad you want something. It's about how hard you're willing to work for it and pick yourself up every time shit hits the fan. It's about how many drunken weekends you're willing to give up to sit at home alone and work on your craft and learn something new. I could have walked away from all the things that I was passionate about every time I believed that I wasn't good enough but the fact that I refuse to is the very reason I'm still right here hustling every single day. I want to be able to make a difference while I'm on this planet.
Call me crazy, tell me my work sucks + I'll never make it far, make me look bad to others, try to deport me, go ahead do it all. While you silly people waste your energy trying to knock this hardworking Mexican down just picture the smiling lady that I am going along with her day, doing badass shit, dancing to salsa in between my metal jam sessions, making people laugh and know that your negative vibes no longer phase me.
