When you want something—really, truly want it—it’s worth [everything in you] to work hard for it. After all, if it's meant to be, God will provide the way—that's how it works, His will, not yours. —Proverbs 19:21

Manifesting is a daily thing for me. I practice and preach it without awareness, and it [partially] inherits the credit for the peace in my life—partially because I give God the glory. It has taught me patience because I didn't always have it. Self-love, because I didn't always do it. Gratitude, kindness, compassion, generosity, it's an endless list of what manifesting does for the soul. In time, it has literally made [me] a better person. It reintroduced and changed my perspective to all of the things money cannot buy. But beware, for every single thought; your beliefs and the things you tell yourself, the good and the bad, they come to life. So manifest good things, and don't just say it, think it and write it, ACT IT. Act as if though you've already received the thing(s) you've been manifesting.

For thoughts become things. Things become reality.

A manifesto is a written statement that describes your goals, objectives, and opinions on a specific topic, issue or thing(s) in life.

Today, I manifested on how I represent myself to the world. I wrote myself a few questions about Seventh and Cherry, the brand —vs.— Me, the creator of Seventh and Cherry.

My objective was to see if who I am—as a woman—was different than who I am as the brand. What I found was that my strengths genuinely equate each other, but the brand shined a little more. I'm a little more of an outspoken, extrovert in my branding and more of a mysterious, introvert in my private life. But my representation overall—the same.

Who are you when no one is watching? When you're not at work. When you're not surrounded by anyone and you're all alone. When your electronics have all shut down and it's just you. Are you the same person the world sees? Who are you?

A manifesto—an incredible way to finding the person in you.
