SoulTalk with Kute Blackson

Nov 28, 2023

"Life is a journey, not a destination and the journey is the reward."

In this episode of the SoulTalk Podcast, let me reflect on my life experiences over the years and share 8 pieces of advice I would give to my 18-year-old self.

Our life experiences are full of highs and lows, challenges, goals, and dreams. From the excitement of launching my bestselling books to the heartbreak of betrayal and breakups, I’ve navigated through various facets of life. As I look back, I find myself feeling blessed and filled with gratitude for these diverse experiences that have shaped me.

Reflecting on my journey, I realize that youth possess a unique beauty - an innocence that shields us from the full awareness of life’s challenges. If I only knew the difficulties that lay ahead, I might be deterred from even beginning the journey. As I share these reflections and some pieces of advice with you, I invite you to consider how they may resonate with your journey. Remember, life is a canvas, and each experience contributes to the masterpiece you create. Tune in to this week’s episode!
