Good Morning!

 

There has been so many things that have changed. I guess you can say I kind of reverted back to my old life because I’m living with my mother again. During this last week there have been so many ups and downs. Over all I am happy, because it means that I can really focus on making my business grow. As I’ve said many times before; I know this is not going to be a cake walk. This is really going to take some real hard work and dedication. I just don’t need other people trying to come in and take what I’ve taken the time to learn and make into something for themselves.

There are people in this world who are straight forward, honest, and loyal. Then you have other people who are always trying to find an easy way to make a come up. Trying to get information or free labor from those people who only have the purest intensions. Using them for their brain or what ever else they can offer. This seems like the same type of person I keep getting reintroduced to over and over and over again. I’m tired of it!

One thing is for damn sure! I’m not going down that road again! I’m tired of being that person who continuously wants to believe that all people have an honest or loyal bone in their body, when some just don’t! Every time I allow myself to think like that I always seem to be the one coming away feeling like I’ve gotten taken advantage of. This time around I’m not gonna be a fool about it; because I’ve worked to hard to create the business that I have to just work for someone else for discounted rates.

Some people believe that they have the gift of persuasion. They believe they’re so good that they can talk you into doing something for them without you even realizing it. The one thing a lot of people don’t understand is; I don’t play about my money or my business, If you think you’re gonna get one over on me, think again. I’m trying to make something of myself too.

One thing I will never do is try to fast talk someone into doing something that is going to majorly benefit me and not them. That is not the way I roll. Sometimes I’m too honest for my own good. That’s why most times I sit back and let people talk. If you listen close enough you’ll hear exactly what you need to hear in one conversation, especially when it comes to business.

Since I’ve been back home I realized I’m not to fond of the bull****. I rather for someone to come at me straight. It is true; When you get older some s*** you just can’t tolerate anymore. And I think I’ve hit my wall.

LIFE

Have you ever experienced a point in life where you felt stuck?

I’ve been feeling like this ever since February 20th, 2019 (the day I lost my job of 15yrs). Truthfully, it’s been longer than that. I thought it was going to be something easy to get over, but it hasn’t been. I have a job now, I’m grateful for it. The only problem is I know I could have been doing so much better if I would have followed my own drum instead of the beat of someone else’s.

When I think about it, I realize most of the choices I made in life have been what other people wanted for me. There aren’t that many things that I’ve decided on in my own. I guess I’m scared of being the one to blame when things don’t go well. I’ve realized in life you’re always going to have choices. I should be looking at it as a good thing, because it means life always has an opportunity to change for the better.

You see, so many times we go through things and concentrate on the negativity of the change or the lose, instead of focusing on how the change is going to benefit us or the people around us. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Slowly but surely I’ve observed how this change was good for me. For one, I’m way more focused on what I want. I’ve been able to post more regularly, I’ve published a book, spoken at an open mic night, soon will be starting a podcast, started a YouTube channel, and in a couple weeks I’ll be going back to college. I have to say God blessed me when he removed me from that place. At the time I didn’t see it. But little by little I can see his plan unfolding and I’m so grateful for this opportunity to live life again.

I know you all my not understand the emotion behind my words and feelings. But just to let you know where I’m coming from; I use to be someone who had no direction! I had a dog of a boyfriend from 19 to 28 he treated me like I was less than dirt on the bottom of a shoe. He constantly lied, cheated, stole from me, put me down in always imaginable, and disappeared sometimes for months at a time. Then to couple that with a step-father who insulted me, demeaned me any chance he got, and cheated on my mother constantly. That isn’t even the half of it. To be honest I could write a whole novel on my negative interactions with men including my sperm donor. I just don’t feel the need to, not yet anyway.

I have to say I’m grateful, even though sometimes I can’t tell if things are improving. One thing I know; they’re not staying the same.

So if you’re like me and life has brought you 180 you need to continue on that path and know most change is for your good. Even if it seems a little or a lot uncomfortable. For the things we really want in life we are always going to have to experience some discomfort in order to appreciate it when something good comes along.
