SHOW UP

I hate starting something and not finishing it. Pretty much anything that I set my mind to, I will do it.

A lot of individuals are expecting results without consistency.

It is easy for my generation to get excited about different things,  but we have a hard time in achieving the end result.

I attribute my success to my personality and having individuals in my circle that have proven to be successful in life.

If you haven't had to work for anything or haven't set any goals for yourself, it will be hard for you to grasp the concept of "SHOWING UP."

I know that I will get where I want to be in life because I will continue to show up. You don't stop when things don't go your way. Don't be afraid to ask others for help.

Funny thing is, there is so much information and so many individuals willing to help us out. We just have to be willing to put in some work.

If you continue to "show up", you will thank yourself 5, 10, 15 years down the road. You might be young now, but you won't always be young.  Saying what you should have, could have, or would have done won't mean a thing.

"DON'T WORK, DON'T EAT"

I JUST WANT TO BE THE GIRL YOU LIKE

Oh, you thought he liked you. No, he liked what he could get from you. Women that need to have a man in their life will always remain a victim to the game. There are too many women going hard for men that just see them in the physical sense. A man will run game on any woman that allows him to do so. He knows when a woman isn't strong enough to demand respect for herself.

You cannot manipulate a man into staying with you. He might be with you physically for the time being, but that doesn't guarantee that he isn't elsewhere.What are you getting for everything that you are giving up physically, mentally, and emotionally? It's time to stop throwing our hearts and bodies away for men that could care less about us.

The only way to know that you don't need a man in your life, is to not have one in your life. Once you accomplish that then you have control. This may be easy for some and harder for others. From what I see, there are many women that have difficulty grasping this concept.

If you really want to know if a man truly likes or loves you for the woman that you are, take sex off of the table. All men are interested in sex, but that usually clears out any man that wasn't interested in anything other than sex. Yes, you have to force a man to respect you. He needs to earn what he wants, it is not to be given for free.

Actions reveal a lot. Many women overlook the signs that are right in front of their faces just to say that they have a man in their life. If you need a man to validate who you are, then you have a wrong and long road ahead of you. Ladies we can't keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.

Break the Cycle

"I wish we could just break the cycle." Those were my words to my Dad as we drove past low income housing in Norfolk, VA this weekend.

So how do we break the cycle of drugs, crime, and violence that seems to plague our cities and neighborhoods generation after generation?

Basically,  you have to do what you can with what you have. It's really not about telling others what they should do, but taking the time to ask them how you can help them.

You will learn so much if you just take time to listen. You have to want to know why people are hurting and you have to care.

We also have to start loving ourselves more. If you don't love yourself you can't effectively love and help others. 

It takes an unconditional type of love to be able to deal with individuals and get to the root cause of the issues that are being manifested in our lives.

Let God direct you, because with him anything is possible.  If you believe that he has placed a certain call on your life, he will confirm it. Surround yourself around individuals that support you and that are able to pray for and with you. 

Always remember that just because you may not visually see a person's wounds, it doesn't mean that they are not there.

AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER....

Oh my, 29 is just around the corner. Where did time go? I remember telling my Dad I can't wait until I'm 18. I also remember him telling me that he didn't want to hear me say that again. Then, I reached the age of 18 and what did that mean. NOTHING!!!!. Yes, I was legally an adult,  but still very immature.

Twenty one came not too far behind and all that meant was that I could legally drink, get into the clubs that I couldn't get into before, and time to get my own life insurance. So now, I'm knocking at the dreaded door of 30. It is something about being in your twenties that's hard to let go. Well, for most women (I think) we just don't want to get old. Even if I don't look or feel old I don't want to say I'm thirty.

Nevertheless,  I will embrace it. I have learned so much in my twenties and I'm ready for the next chapter of my life. I will enjoy this last year in my twenties and continue to chase after my dreams.
