I’ve been so busy with life that it’s been a minute since I’ve had time to sit down and blog! Nevertheless, there has been this unlikely source that’s inspired me to get back at it, and it’s this new app called Periscope presented via Twitter. It’s a live video streaming app that allows you to literally “scope out the scene” in someone else’s world. It’s not often that you are able to connect with people in such a way. Although I’ve only been on Periscope for a couple of weeks, I’ve been so inspired by seeing other people share their passions, entrepreneurial pursuits, highs and lows, and just their pure hustle and grind toward achieving their goals!
During my absence, I have been diligently working on practicing what I preach. The sermon that I preach is the pursuit of purpose for the ultimate goal of living out your gift. There’s no way that I can help you find and live your gift if I’m not doing the work in my own life! I pray that my experiences lends itself to be of some value to you on your pursuit of purpose! God has placed a gift within all of us, but it’s our responsibility to stir it up and bring it to the light! It’s only when our gift is brought to the light that it can be a blessing to others. With that being said, I’ve been quite nervous to do the “Periscope thing!!” I’m more of a “behind the scenes” person and never liked being the center of attention! However, I genuinely believe that connecting with you via a personal platform will be extremely beneficial to not only you, but me as well. I plan on doing my first “scope” sometime this week! If I don’t do it, make sure you call me out on it! LOL!
Last but not least, I want to give a huge shout out to two college friends that I’ve been following on Periscope that have been a complete delight!! They are full of motivation and realness with a whole lot of knowledge! Thank you for inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone…even if you didn’t know it! Do yourself a favor and follow them! Their information is below!
