Stop giving so much enegery to people or things just to make others happy. Your happiness matter too, it always has. Your comfort matters and we all should be Ok with understanding what that means for us, how much it takes or gives to us, and how useful or useless some of these emotional investments and sacrifices can or can not be. 📸InstaGram: https://www.instagram.com/perspectiveofanartistpodcast/•📻Podcast:https://podfollow.com/perspective-of-an-artist•💟Stop Doing Things You Don’t like Collection: https://www.lerouxart.com/shop•💻https://www.lerouxart.com•👤FaceBook: ‪https://www.facebook.com/MoLeRouxArt ‬•📺YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMa__eo4fum7HanXQX2r0zA•🐣Twitter: ‪https://twitter.com/lerouxart
Hi family. We've heard the saying, "Knowing you worth" but what about working through internally to accept your worth... Yes, just simply accepting your self worth. I understand it's a huge personal milestone to start understanding you have worth, then the other is to understand that, that particular worth is validated but what about the acceptance of that worth. I struggled there for a while in those thougts for myself. Sure, I have worth but in order to fully embody the concept of my worth, I have to eventually at some point accept it. I beleive sometimes a lot of us struggle here too so I wanted to speak on my experience with arriving at my new level of self love by, "Accepting" My Self Worth.

I know I took a break after the last episode. Self care is a must, even for Podcast hosts. However, I have some BIG news! I am currently making a film here in Houston, Texas. It's called, Meet Houston's Artists, and it's a docuseries! Myself, an underground artist, tell the stories of many multi-level career artists continuing to create amid COVID-19, Economic downfall & a country divided in Houston, Texas, USA. From painting out of their living rooms, doing pop-up art shows, and festivals to having a studio space in differing areas of the city. Each artist has their own story to how they got started in the city of Houston as artists and we will visit some of those locations and see how they are managing the mess, that is, 2020. You can view our LIVE streamed trailer here: https://www.facebook.com/MeetHoustonsArtists/videos/923420938155414/ or by following our social media pages for the Meet Houston's Atrtists Doucseries.

I honestly didn't want to talk about this ever on my platform but I have to be honest about who I am, what I stand for, and what I feel. 2019 was already acting quite strange over a chicken sandwich but I digress. I think one of the best things we probably can do right now as human beings, is talk about what is going on so we can work through all of these emotions. COVID-19 was something I was aware of and made sure to err on the side of caution with but knowoing, even the Black Plague didn't last forever. Things always change. In additon to my rather cautious life already, I was thrown into an emotional tail spin with the news of George Floyd. Seeing yet again, another person who looks like me get murdred on film and subsequently the entire country and across the globe tune in as if we enjoy murder porn that sparked real outrage, fake outrage, protests, riots and ewww, it just got really bad. I speak here alone, from a place of personal self reflection, self interpretation, self opinion and I speak for no one else. I arrived at how this is actually a moral compass issue that we are grossly overlooking because we are locked in on the racial tensions, differences, and issues that plaques our nation's history past, present and sad enough, future.   Visit the 💟Stop Doing Things You Don’t like Collection LeRouxArt.com/shop ‪📸InstaGram: https://www.instagram.com/mo_lerouxart ‬👤FaceBook: ‪https://www.facebook.com/MoLeRouxArt ‬📺YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMa__eo4fum7HanXQX2r0zA 🐣Twitter: ‪https://twitter.com/lerouxart‬ George Floyd PodCast Cover Art Provided By: "Craig C The Artist" a local Houston African American Artist
