Trust You!




As always, I hope all is well and you are following the road less traveled, but the one that you feel in your heart belongs to you. Like I’ve said may times before; “You aren’t living unless you’re living a life of freedom and remain to be uninhabited by your surroundings.

Too many times we have been stopped from doing things we really have wanted to do because we were listening to the opinions of others. Sometimes it’s good to listen to others, but sometimes it’s not.

Let Your Brain Take the Road Less Traveled - The Human FactorMy whole life has been dictated by others. Mainly because I was afraid to take accountability for the things I chose. Cause this way I could sometimes do what I wanted, because someone suggested it and not get blamed for the outcome. But the only thing with that is sometimes people choose what you would have chosen, then other times they don’t. When that happens you’re focused with making the decision whether you are going to do what they suggest, or are you going to follow your own mind and do what you want to do anyway?

That’s why I’ve learned to follow my own advise. Don’t misunderstand me, I still ask people their opinion; but I don’t fall for the peer pressure of doing something because someone told me too. 

It’s gonna be a struggle at first, but you’ll be so happy once you learn to trust yourself. Cause what happens when you finally start following your own mind is; you stop being a follower and become a leader. In becoming a leader you also unlock you mind and finally give yourself the permission to be you, unapologetically. That is when the true beauty of living comes in to play.


Question of the day:What is something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t because of the opinions of others?

      Have you ever worked some where and been working there so long til everyone knows you? Well, that’s me at my job. I get so annoyed with that because people come in with stank attitudes believing you should be giving them A1 service, when they barely acknowledge you’re standing right there in front of them. I want to be treated like a human being too. I get tired of people thinking that they can do say and treat a worker any kind of way. I understand that it has everything to do with manners, but that is something that I can’t continue to deal with. For one, I’m a very respectful person that treats people how I would want them to treat me. But do you think that matters? Hell nah, It doesn’t!

        When I say I’m done with working with the general public, I’m done! I need something better. I have way too many qualifications to be treated as if I’m dumb and just don’t know any better. What I’ve realized is, I’m the one standing in my own way. I could have found something a lot better years ago, but didn’t because I was too afraid of starting something new. Now I feel, I have to start something better and new so I can continue to grow. I’m not going to let the devil win this battle. I’m going to keep on keeping on! There is nothing that is going to stop me from striving to live my dreams!

       Sorry for the rant, but that’s what kind of week I’ve been having. I found out great news just to find out terrible news the same day. But I hope you enjoyed. If there’s something you want to see on this blog, let me know and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
