KKS3 EP 8 | Ruminations and The Bamboo Shoot Moment Kat's Korner: The Podcast

Consider this episode a general brain dump where I'm thinking about how we show up authentically, and in a way that sustains us. In this episode, I shared how much the work that I do sustains me, and how much I learned about myself in the process. I also shared a bit about Ruth E. Carter’s story, a Black American costume designer for film and television, who has found her passion, built a life out of it, was recognized for her brilliance, and was pushed out in front into the world after being the costume designer for Black Panther. In relation to her journey, I also talked about an excerpt from a book by Paulo Coelho that I’m re-reading, which is about how many things in life, personal and professional, are like the bamboo tree–it takes time before your year arrives and with it will come changes that you hadn't dreamed of. Key takeaways: Reflective rumination and getting it out (like what I'm trying to be better at, and not live in my head) are important. Find people who are your people and talk about these things. Take a step back and look at what you have accomplished in life–give yourself enough credit. Own your experiences–nothing that you have experienced on your path is wasted. About Kat: Founder and owner of LiL SoSo Productions, Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi lives a varied life from being a radio and podcast host, a creative director, a writer and professor, a motivator and a traveler. It is from all of these roles the term “cultural architect” comes when describing what she does. As a cultural architect, Kat is mainly concerned with creating meaningful Black content and experiences, pulling on the global Black thread that brings the element of “cool” wherever it is stitched in.
