Today was good and productive, and brought along with it inspiration to keep motivated and moving along my path.
I love it when it feels like this.
I got things done, and I continue to get things done, and my need and desire to get even more things done propels me forward.
I keep reminding myself that I built this life, that I asked for it, that I spoke it into existence, and that I can sustain it by continuing to do what I do.
The best feeling in the world is knowing that you are doing what you love with a purpose.
It’s so important, and not everyone has that opportunity.
I promise to keep taking care of it.
Police in England said 19 people are confirmed dead and 50 others were injured after an explosion occurred during an Ariana Grande concert Monday night at Manchester Arena.
ABC News reports that a representative from Grande’s record label confirmed that the 23-year-old singer was not injured in the incident.
Greater Manchester Police said on their official Twitter account, “This is currently being treated as a terrorist incident until police know otherwise.”
Other social media accounts said at least one sudden loud noise was heard about 10:35 p.m. near bars at the arena where Grande was performing.
“A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena,” concertgoer Majid Khan, 22, told Britain’s Press Association. “It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit.”
According to ABC, the cause of the explosion is unknown, but social media posts showed people fleeing the from the venue.
I have so much going on right now.
This is a good thing.
I’ve been on back-to-back phone interviews since early this morning. The original reporting game is picking up for me.
It is amazing having wonderful and valued sources who keep feeding me tips on good stories. My portfolio and profile are growing, and it’s thanks to the many good people who trust me to tell their stories and the stories that are important to them.
This afternoon, I will be doing more phone interviews, writing news buzzes for The Root, finishing up a commentary piece and updating some of the stories I’ve already worked on.
This writer’s life is such a blessing of abundance. I cannot say it enough.
I am forever grateful that I was brave enough to make the choice to leave my day job last summer.
The investment in myself is paying off ten-fold.
Today’s focus is on writing and organizing my ongoing writing projects.
I have interview notes to transcribe, research to gather and outline, news buzzes to write, and deadlines to meet.
I remain grateful for the opportunities before me, and I am committed to protecting this life and not taking it for granted.
That means giving it my all even when I am sleepy, or uninspired, or experiencing distractions.
Nobody can do this for me but me; I’m all I got.
If this is what I truly want for myself, then it is up to me to keep making it happen.
My life is by my own design.
I am the protagonist in my life’s story, and I refuse to let anyone else write the book.
Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey has got to go.
Although the Los Angeles Police Commission found fault with the way LAPD Officers Samuel Briggs and Antonio McNeely handled themselves in the shooting of Norma Guzman, the prosecutors will not be filing criminal charges against the two officers.
This is disgraceful.
A memo from the district attorney’s office that was made public Wednesday outlines the facts of the case and concludes that Police Officers Samuel Briggs and Antonio McNeely had reason to fear for their lives and “acted in lawful self-defense and defense of others.”
