Solange, Instagram


Solange Knowles is too blessed to be stressed. OK, maybe a little stressed.

The star is one of the busiest people in the industry, from juggling her singing career to running businesses to being a mother and wife, it's no secret that sometimes her hectic schedule can get the best of her.

However, even in these overwhelming moments, the celeb understands that the problems she's facing are actually great issues to have, because at the end, she's blessed.

The 29-year-old star took to Instagram to vent her frustration with the struggle of leaving her son to complete different projects with a lengthy caption alongside a photo of herself lying down in a yellow bandeau top and white high-waisted trousers. 

"8 gigs, 8 studio sessions, 6 flights, in 2 weeks....but got to sleep in my bed for 2 nights. While I was home Julez pulled out my chair for me at lunch, said he'd sell his Nintendo so I could get a dress I loved when we went stopped by a store, and said he sees Chinese symbols when he listens to Alice Coltrane. He's phenomenal and I'm in love with he and it's really really hard to be away," she began to write.

" I cried this morning because this is the longest we've been apart and my insides kind of split in half when I headed to the airport, but I'm working really really hard to finish this damn album and so grateful to have his and my hubby's support."

Solange continued by illustrating what really goes down behind the pictures that get the love on social media.

"I like to use IG to create and share a little color and laughter in my life, and to see the beauty and fun in things in the midst of a lot of hard ass work and sacrifice that goes along with it. Its just not fun to show the 18 hour studio days, even when I'm sick as hell, coughing all up on @audio_nino (sorry Nino) , and then getting up at 6am to tackle the 400 borriiinnng emails @johnbogaard and I exchange daily (sorry john, but you do make me lol for every 10 emails),while trying to balance running multiple businesses and still find time to dedicate to issues that are important to me.

"At the end of all, just when I think I'm going to do something crazy like get a face tat or shave my eyebrows off, or spray paint my hands metallic silver and then do the home alone screen, so I have permanently have shiny handprints on my cheeks, my heart just explodes with gratitude....that this is my life."

She concludes, "I couldn't be more grateful, humbled, and really, God honestly, blessed. So suck it up bissh, and stop being emo and whiney on the insta, and get the f--k back to work.....cuz you knooooow you took this pictures weeeeeks ago when you actually were glowing like that, lol. (Although to be fair, I could've worn this in 80 degree Nola yesterday) ok. bye."

LOL. Gotta respect the hustle.
