"Discovering who I am at my core, becoming day by day more myself" Alicia Keys

More Myself by Alicia Keys was a perfect time to release this book. Although the circumstances are unfortunate this is a great time of self care, reflection and revaluation. Reading this book you get to learn more about Alicia Keys and her journey from past to present. I think it shows growth to take a look back with no regrets and learn how formed who you are, your character. That's a journey that involves all parts of you mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritual and/or religious. As the layers go deep you vibe high. Most trees that grow test of time are deeply rooted. During this pandemic we are to stay inside and practice social distancing. This is a good time to utilize and get to know yourself, understand where you are. Alicia Keys book can be a guide, inspiration for the reader. 

In More Myself there was a part where Alicia Keys was with her mom and inquired about the women she saw in the street. This quote was her mother's response. 
"When people go through hard times they often have to do things they don't want to. These women are just trying to survive" This was an empathetic and thoughtful response. Alicia had a view of the world that the women were not "on the corner by choice but by circumstance."

Setting Boundaries & Choosing You
In the video below Alicia Keys discussed and read part of a chapter from her book and the words were true. The word "No" is so simple yet powerful. I too am guilty of and can relate to what she mentioned; being a bright light that would burn out. I now give myself time to reflect and recharge. Time is essential we owe it to ourselves so we can be strong & purposeful as Alicia Keys mentioned. Setting boundaries you can set & prepare yourself for greatness.

  "I've been blessed to make a career out of doing what I love, but the environment from where I came, the conditions of my youth, the trauma that still lives inside of me, and the struggles that nearly broke me connect me with so many others, I want to tell my story not because it's unique but because it is not"  Scenes From My Life is a well written memoir by Michael K. Williams with Jon Sternfeld. I read the book in two days as I was intrigued by the lifestyle of Michael K. Williams, with depth and descriptive form of storytelling. The book takes you on a journey through highlights and harsh realities. I enjoyed watching Michael K Williams on television series Law and Order , the Wire, Black Market and after reading this book I learned more about the human experience, the black experience, thoughtfulness and grew even more appreciation for his character both on and off camera.  Thank you for creating a body of work and being an open book.
