Y’all. Prince tweeted an article that I wrote about him. I can’t even, like, what? I went to the Essence Music Festival and in my editorial plan for work, I detailed that I would be writing a review of Prince’s show. I had no idea that my review would reach the PURPLE ONE!
I woke up to a text from my Senior Editor, asking me if I realized that the Twitter account the Prince uses– @3RDEYEGIRL had tweeted my show review? I had not because if I had, I would have sent the tweet to everyone in the world who I know. I went to go check the tweet and I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Prince not only tweeted my article, but he put the link between these very important words: “Striving 4 Excellence.” Even if Prince is talking about himself, it’s a stunning coincidence to have those words alongside mine.
This will go down in history as the single most excellent thing that’s ever happened to me in my career–for now. I know I am headed for greatness, so there’s a lot more amazing things that can and will be happening my career.
I love that my life is barely recognizable. I remember being a little girl, sitting on my bed back home in North Carolina, begging for things to be different. I was sad because I knew that I was special, but I also had a complex where I didn’t think I mattered. It made my life a living hell. But after deciding to live abundantly, I found my way to New York City and 8 years later, Prince knows I’m breathing. And I’m alive.
