When will you finally let go of that ball of fear that is sitting in the bottom of your stomach. You’ve been thinking and dreaming about this since the age of 13 when you realized it was possible. You saw someone who looked like you doing it and knew it was possible for you to have in the future. You just had to keep working at that talent.
When you got to high school at least your freshman year you didn’t think about it. Although during sophomore year when you moved away you tried out for several teams and made it on the last one you tried out for. Then things happened and that opportunity was gone.You moved back home considered doing the same thing again but because you friend bailed out on you, you feared doing it alone so you didn’t try out. So high school went by and you didn’t exercise that talent.
You’re 18 now and you find another opportunity to exercise this talent on another platform and no tryout is necessary. Not only do you have the chance to use this talent but you also get to teach it part of that dream and you continue to do this for the next 19 years but you never pursued it as a career. This dream has always been in the back of your mind but you never tried to make it come true.
Now has got to be the time, I have to pursue it everyone keeps asking me when am I going to open this business even those who barely know me. Therefore that ball of fear in the pit of my stomach I have to release and turn it into strength and courage to move forward. God has never let me down and I believe that because I have continued to use it He will multiply the ways in which I can utilize this talent. I desire to open a business but I don’t have the funds to get it started. God doesn’t give you an idea without the tools to bring it to life.
It’s been three years today, Im glad I haven’t stopped blogging. Sometimes I take pauses because life gets in the way but never stop. I love blogging I share my life and the people around me, I just want people to learn the life lessons I have learned. I pray that you all receive the messages, thanks for continuing to read,rock and roll with me.
Over the years I have realized that time by yourself allows you to get to know yourself. When you are around others we are more prone to compare ourselves to our peers. Or we began to model ourselves behind someone else. You were fearfully, wonderfully and uniquely created, set apart. We are not meant to be just like anyone else. Carbon copies are meant for paper not people.
Take time for yourself get to know you what you like what you don’t like. Learn your ways what annoys you and what makes you smile. Discover your favorite past times, explore a new area in your city, find a new hobby, learn you. If you spend all your time with someone else be it a friend a significant other you will never know yourself and who you are without the addition of someone else.
I know people who have never been without a mate, they don’t know themselves without having a partner. The sad thing is I don’t know them without that significant other.
Allow yourself and the people around you to get to know the real true you.
You have to set yourself up for success by keeping that poison out of your life. If your friends are all negative, tend to compromise, or settle for mediocrity, it’s time to get some new friends.
Spending time with successful people,you will become successful. Choose your friends carefully so you can set yourself up for success and be equipped to move forward in the destiny God has prepared for you!
Sometimes being transparent can help others deal with the situations they are dealing with, because nine times out of ten our life situations are similar.
Delay is not denial, and denied doesn’t mean God hasn’t prepared something greater for you. Growing up I have been dreaming, wishing, hoping, and praying for the day when I would have the dream job and the dream husband. Now as that I have reached an age when I thought it would have happened already or would be happening it makes me think where did I go wrong or what have I been doing that is so wrong. Then I think about all the women who didn’t do the right things, who did everything the unconventional way and have kids and great jobs and husbands. Then I stand here confused, bewildered just really not understanding where my life is headed.
As many people who I have around me who love me, encourage, and motivate me I still sometimes feel like life sucks sometimes and I don’t have anything I desire in life. I am constantly praying for things to change and get better. People always ask who I am dating or where is my man but never have they tried to hook me up with anyone either, So I wonder is the concern genuine or not. Then other’s who always ask about my state of employment or if I finished that book or started that business. Sometimes it’s like, if I haven’t told you it hasn’t happened or if I haven’t told you it because I don’t desire for you to know.
I just know that life comes with ups and downs you take the good with the bad. At the end of the day, live your life for you not the expectations of others. Don’t date a man or woman because they look like a fit and will please your friends and family don’t forget about you. Don’t wait for the beginning of a new year to do something you always wanted let the idea spark cause you to move forward with your goals period.
I needed that break, I needed to clear my mind take care of me refocus ,but I’m back like I never left. Thank you all for bearing with me, and I appreciate those of you who are still rocking with me.
As the year comes to an end I’m in a place where I’m ending certain things and preparing to start new things. This is not because it’s the end of the year it’s just because it’s much-needed in my life. Sometimes that’s what a little me time will do for you, give you clarity. Sometimes that break will give you the option to remove things that aren’t necessary and make room for what you desire.
I hope you all will continue this ride with me.
FYI that book is coming soon 🙂
Merry Christmas , Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa
Until next time
Life can be full of ups and downs in and outs so many things. Learning how to balance them all is key. Although sometimes it can be overwhelming, our plates are sometimes too full or overflowing. We have to learn when and with whom to say no to, it can be difficult. Even the things we love the most are the things we need a break from. Even your body tells you when to slow down and take a break.
Sometimes it’s necessary to listen to and adhere to whats going on, taking a break from certain things will clear up time for you. We all need a little me time time away from things and people. It’s okay to tell people I need space, I need a sit this one out, I’m not going to hang out this time, etc. etc. Whatever it is you deserve that break and don’t be afraid of sitting this one out and maybe even the next one too. You’d be surprised at how much you need it and how much better you will feel.
Take A Break You Deserve It
