"Do right and kill everything." -Aubrey Graham
If 2017 taught me anything worth mentioning, it would have to be the importance of taking imperfect action. Taking imperfect action is to approach a situation with confidence, good intentions and humility. I constantly telling myself I can do something but to also learn from my mistakes so I don’t make them again. With each stage in life comes different challenges and right now some of the challenges I face are keeping a budget, maintaining my dating life, and developing my own brand. Nobody is perfect so it’s time to live life unapologetically.
The life of Gavôn Owen isn’t a walk in the park, especially when society tells me to be one way and Gucci Mane tells me to be the complete opposite. So how do I deal with my failures and imperfections? Faith.
I have faith that I will overcome all my insecurities that I allow to hold me back. I have faith that I’ll get married and have kids of my own. I have faith I have a lot of growing to do and my life has only begun. I won’t let my mistakes define my future.
So one thing I've learned in not so lit 2017, is I'm going to make the biggest mistakes in my entire life and I have to be comfortable with that fact. When I'm vulnerable, I make risky decisions and focus on everything play out to my advantage. But then I forget how often I put myself in awkward circumstance... That's what our 20s are for, right?

Well if it's any consolation, I've managed to overcome the obstacles that have held me back from becoming a stylist, blogger, brand manager, freelance writer and I’m putting my better habits into practice. I can't say that I'll do everything perfectly, but I'll always do what I think is right.
