So, I have a confession to make: I am truly obsessed with Hip-Hop Music, specifically Trap music. I know, I know, probably hard to believe that this Corporate Marketer who is completely Glam-Obsessed can’t live without hearing a little bit of Future, Meek Mill, Lil Baby or Yo Gotti!
Let me explain:
For those who really know me, you will know that I currently have a book shelf filled with VIBE, The Source and XXL Magazines from as early as 2001. Yep, I have all of the goodies, including coveted covers with Lil Kim and 2 Pac. You see, early on I had goals of actually working at a Hip-Hop magazine, so this obsession of mine runs deep.
Whether I am riding in the car, working out during a 6 am sweat session or bouncing my head in one of my city’s trendy bars, I partake in the trap! Don’t get me wrong, I also love my R&B, House and Jazz, but I definitely embrace and celebrate this form of musical expression.
So, what’s my point in sharing this with my readers? It has to do with the concept of not judging a book by its cover. As a woman and mother, I strive to live my life judgment-free and am already teaching my son the same thing. We as individuals and as moms are quite unique. How one mom chooses to raise her child may be quite different from the next mom, but who are we to judge each other as moms? I’m not one-sided, there are multiple sides to me and I embrace and love each and every part of me.
As we get ready to walk into a New Year, I am encouraging each of you to not judge, to take the time to learn more about ourselves and each other. I am un-apologetically me, and am completely aware of who I am, how I live my life and what matters to me.
In the meantime Glams, I’m curious, do you GLAM IT and TRAP IT? Let me know in the comments section below.
