Looking Back-A Memoir

Looking back on life, I've always wondered why some things didn't work out. Why doesn't his dusty ass still love me? Why couldn't I relocate to DC when I first wanted to? Why did my daddy have to die so soon? Life will leave you with many questions and sometimes it will take years to answer, if at all. Yes, sometimes she (life) can be a bitch, respectfully. Refusing to go over the lessons with you, but doesn't mind dishing out that refresher course to help your ass remember. But shit happens. Sometimes its fair, sometimes it's not. I do believe that it all works together. Simple things put big things in motion. Tiny steps get the momentum going on a big dream. The things that seemingly did not work out for you, actually do work out for you. To answer the questions I posed above, her are the answers that I've come up with after deep reflection. It did not work out with him because it wasn't supposed to. He would have held me back from moving to the place that I will shine. I wanted to move to DC in 2014, but the doors just would not open. Hell, the day I was set to leave to visit a couple of weeks was the day a big snow storm would hit. Cancelling all flights. Damn, I almost gave up on the dream...didn't know how it would come about. The major thing was my dad would end up having a massive stroke a couple of months later and needed my absolute care and concern. Those months I thought were wasted are now precious to me. It was my last months with him. I bet if you looked back on your life you can see the times where you thought things were working against you, but when you look back, you can connect the dots. And I do understand that sometimes things happen that is just beyond our scope of understanding and it is difficult. I do not live in some fantasy world, but if you keep an open mind to change and accept it, you will travel with the flow of life. Muah!

The Road Less Traveled

I must write like my life depends on it. It kind of does. I mean, how else will I get to where I need to be. I feel and believe writing is one of the avenues I must take. What is your avenue? What is that thing that you do so well that you often overlook it and shoot it down as nothing. Is it singing? Can you throw down in the kitchen? Balancing equations in chemistry is an art form for you? Can you code and design a website? These things are often referred to as our gifts/talents. And God has given everyone something to excel at. So no need to hate on Beyoncé because your ass can't sing or prance on the stage in a Versace bodysuit. Your gift could be one of administration. You can probably run the hell out of a a good way, of course. See often, we are so focused on other people's lives and what they have and how they do things. We may not be able to do something as well as them. That's why it is so important to examine our life. Stay on our own road. And dare to be different. Take the road less traveled. It can be a difficult road, yet rewarding. Many people do not take the road less traveled out of fear. No one likes to be alone. We crave security and the stability that we believe comes from following the crowd. But too many of us are sitting on our talents, dreams and aspirations because we believe deep down that we can't do it. "We are not smart enough, we don't have enough money etc are the many excuses we give." Because fear overwhelms the majority of us from action. It's a tough pill to swallow to get to the end of our life and realize that maybe if you had pursued your goals, you actually would have accomplished them. This life is yours and it's what you make of it. You are solely responsible. Muah!

Positive Affirmation: I Am Amazing!

I am amazing! How many of us can say that and truly believe it? The idea that I am amazing, despite my mistakes and many hard lessons that life has dished out. Through the adversities that weren't your fault, but especially the one self-inflicted. Through the mishaps and setbacks, do you believe that you are still amazing? The fact that you decided to give life another try, isn't that amazing? The hardships are enough to push anyone over, but you said, this life is worth it. That is amazing. The fact that even though you are hurt, most likely in the day you will laugh or smile at something. Even if it is for a brief moment. That is amazing. Your feet, they have gotten you into places you shouldn't have been, and they have also gotten you out. Step by step in a different, more positive direction. That's all we can do is to take this life step by step and know that despite my issues etc, I am still amazing. I am unique and will continue on.
