A Dream Un-Deferred: My Reluctant Acceptance Of A Milestone Accomplishment

IMG_3160

For me, it has always been about the work. Not popularity. Not accolades. But simply doing my best to make my family proud. From an early age I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I started my first business in third grade selling lollipops for twenty-five cents to classmates. That was decades ago. Way before my big dreams manifested into reality. Before Instagram and Twitter followers. Before Facebook likes and Snap Chat videos. When a little boy they called “Dee,” dreamed the so-called-impossible, yet imaginable.

Today, I am still that little boy dreaming. True, I now have the power to make most of them a reality. True, today’s dreams are a little more realistic. But, I am the same. Nothing has changed me. Where I have arrived is the destination I foresaw. So, I am not comfortable with the accolades. I don’t feel that special. I am still doing the work to make myself and my family better. I don’t have time to celebrate. I am busy planning my next move.

What I will celebrate is Bleu Magazine. Ten years as an independent media outlet is hard. Peers didn’t believe it would work. Other competing magazines cast negative energy in our direction. Instead we stayed the course and persevered. In the words of Madonna, “Absolutely no regrets!”

We celebrate year 10 by celebrating year one. That’s when it mattered the most. It is easy to believe in the brand now, after 10 years and 44 covers. Who was there before any cover were booked? That is what counts. No worries, if you missed the first 10, we won’t hold it against you. We plan on being around several more decades.

For those that didn’t receive an invite to the party. Here’s a video to show you what you missed.
