With all the mess going on in the world, around my city and in my life. I love my life. I love the choices I am making to move forward. I cannot be told what to do except by God. I am not listening to noise. I have long since given up seeking other's approval. Turning 40 (I am 47) is the great beginning of "Get The Fuck Out Of Here" era. I just can't bear witness to other's people projections about how they think I ought to be.
I was listening to Joel Osteen talking about run your own race. Stay in your lane and do you. It was so on point. You are wasting time competing with other people...that takes you off your path and into someone else's race. Run your own race. Then I heard T.D.Jakes talking about letting negative people go. You can't succeed when you are surrounded by folks whispering you can't do this that or the other thing. They are perhaps well meaning. But you have to know when folks are speaking from their place of fear.
I am standing in a good place today. I am feeling strong and determined. I am feeling like there are so many grand possibilities to thrive and prosper. it's all about the choices I am making. Nothing happens by chance. Whatever you do sets off a chain of events to bring you to a particular place, sometimes its where you want to be and sometimes its a place you don't want to be. There is always a gift waiting for you. A lesson to be learned. Each challenge, each happy moment, each adversity, each opportunity to make love brings you closer to who you are supposed to be.
