you've written on your blog a lot about a sense of worthiness and you have written songs about it you sing about it you have sung about it for years about loving myself loving myself loving myself and we talked about how in many cases that was affirmation for you because something inside you knew that you were supposed to but you were reaching for it and have now evolved to that space the difference between wanting to love yourself and truly loving yourself what does that feel feel like I want to tell you what my turning point was the top of 2012 came and I started having other health issues that were showing up on my skin and it was it started out just like a little bit of rash eNOS here and there and by March of 2012 it was every inch of my face was covered in rashes rashes big rashes and then bumps all over it was almost like I ate he liked to help me see a visual yeah it wasn't wrinkles like that but like that visual aging it was like I aged 50 years one day I woke up and was broken out and then it just kept breaking out and I was still moving forward with the album and trying to finish it and forcing it I was forcing it yeah were you going to skin doctors we're people trying to kind of go into skin doctors and then this stuff would hurt worse than it helped and then it would make the stuff go away but it would all come back in two weeks and I was trying everything and then I went got allergy tested and I realized that I all your stuff is coming out on my skin is coming out on my skin I mean I realized now that people go through much worse things and I know that I knew it at the time but I thought maybe I could have a serious illness and I flew to my favorite place in the world which is Hawaii and was there for two or three weeks or whatever and I ended up going to just someone wanted to take me to see a volcano and I was standing there and we're looking at the volcano and it was you know Hawaii's magnificently beautiful yeah so seeing the water in the volcano and watching the smoke and everything come out and those taking it all in and what I understood in that moment was what I what I had read about and what I understood intellectually but that all things are interconnected and then it was kind of like yes everything is interconnected and you – and everything is always in divine order and even your skin and even the stuff you're going through it's it I realize this sounds really simple but it was like everything's always going to be okay that's how it felt mm-hmm and so I felt the volcano and I felt this thing and but we got down to the to our car and then down to like little bathroom stop and I went and I looked in the mirror and my skin was the worst it was the worst that had ever been and I started to get mad I was like after all this that I've been trying and I barely even eat anything that I like to eat and you know and then I felt this call it was like a I wish I had better words I felt the sense of calm it was in this is that moment that I understood that there was what I felt like I was planted with a seed of trust because I I'm gonna believe in God and I trust that life is gonna unfold but it was different it was like this place of trust that nothing can harm or shake like a and I didn't have it before because you know things would move me to the point that I would be sad about something to my virgin cuz I thought you're gonna say I came down from the mountain and I went and I looked in the mirror and my skin was clear no no it was the worst of everything worse did it ever but man I didn't react emotionally it was just like and I remember catching myself and being like I feel okay with this I mean I don't want it but it's not making me feel like why God like I want to shout you know God it just made me feel like so you accepted it I accepted it you accepted it and surrendered to then I accepted and surrender yeah but the moment when I went home that same day yeah I got off the plane and it was clear hallelujah and I just I feel like that surrender what and the reason I said that the reason I asked the question about acceptance and surrender is because that's one of the biggest lessons I've ever learned in life the moment you say whatever thy will as you see it God I'm with you I'll do thy will be done not my will that's the moment things move things move things moves the moment things move you unblock it you unblock those a nigga's blessings flow
