Hey Good People!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent the holiday eating way too much yet feeling super grateful being surrounded by my family. Over the holiday weekend, “She’s Gotta Have It” made its debut release. Now, I must be honest I never saw the original 1986 film. I know I know.
But! with all of its hype surrounding the new Netflix series I figured why not just have a binge-watching day. My Saturday consisted of laying around with my sister watching all of the episodes of “She’s gotta have it”. After the first episode, I was immediately drawn to what this show was going to represent.
There I sat, feeling relieved that finally there was a show that portrayed all of the things that I personally faced being a women in today’s world. Here are five things I have to learn how to embrace within myself after watching “She’s Gotta Have It”:
I’M A CREATOR AND I HAVE TO OWN IT
Nola Darling’s love for art was not hidden. It was so freaking awesome to see her express herself in her own way and tell the world this is who I am, love it or leave it alone. I’ve embraced my love for fashion but as a newbie in tech I realize I shy away from saying I work in the tech industry. I have to embrace I love creating things and even with this blog I will not hide the things I love nor where I plan to go with it. It’s time to embrace what you love.
WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY?
It’s always a simple statement yet difficult to achieve. Nola is a fearless woman and wasn’t afraid to say that aloud. I admired her for showing her art in a format that expressed how women felt. In the end, ask yourself who really gives a__? People will always have something to say no matter what. If you want to switch careers, try something new just do it! Try to care less about other’s opinion of yourself.
