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
I CONTINUE TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH THOSE WHO’S MOTIVATION, MOTIVATES ME TO STAY MOTIVATED AND MOVE FORWARD WITH MY GOALS!!!
You gave to make a decision to surround yourself with positive go getter people if that is what you desire to be. Ask questions don’t be ashamed or afraid of the unknown. I use to be afraid to ask questions but I got a revelation that if you don’t ask you won’t ever know. It can be a difficult task but it’s well worth it to sift your friends like wheat. I made it my business to only surround myself with those who are like-minded or better minded (laughing but serious) than myself. That way they can show me I can ask questions I can grow and move forward. The people around me also motivate me, encourage, me tell me the truth especially when they know it will hurt my feeling but assist in my growth. Don’t be surprised if you are no longer on my list of people who I communicate with on a regular basis. I mean let’s be real you already know who you are because you don’t have my best interest at heart. It’s okay move on with your life know that I’m praying for you.
As for those of you who are my rocks, my cheerleaders, and I am yours lets keep moving forward, praying, encouraging, motivating, pushing and truth-telling so that we may all excel in life.
Today marks two years of blogging. I am proud of myself for the consistent content that I have produced. I enjoy writing and sharing my life and the things around me. I know my listening ear and sharing my experience prior to blogging helped people around me. I thought merging the two would be even more of a help to others. I am grateful to those of you who have supported and continue to support my blog. I look forward to sharing my upcoming endeavors with you all.
Keep coming back more encouraging, motivational, inspirational and fashionable blog posts are to come. As I grow and change you I hope that you will change and grow too.
