Unapologetic is my current state of mind and my best work yet. It is a state of mind I’ve attained by finding harmony in the good and the bad events of my life that has shaped and still shaping me into who I am and will be.

“It is a submission to the fact that I’m just a propeller in the course of the universe actualizing its goals through me. It’s a courageous acceptance of myself, of change, and consequences of my actions, and a push towards being better over being sorry for myself.
