The other day I was getting ready to step outside and well something funny happened... The weather was dramatically different from the day before so before I opened the door and stepped out, I zipped up my jacket and put on my hoodie. I open the door and stepped out to come across a black cat scurrying in front of me and the first thing I said was awh shit. I immediately thought to myself, wow because I thought of the timing. Could that be an indication I was at the wrong place at the wrong time or maybe a sign of my fate because literally this could of happened a moment before or after and it would have meant nothing (especially if I had my head down and didn't notice the presence of a black cat), but NOO.. lol
It funny to me because of all the superstition around the whole idea that if a black cat crosses your path it's bad luck and well let me tell you, it happened that everything started to go downhill. I was let go from my job, a high priced item that I just bought fell and broke and I had several opportunities that presented itself fall through ... It was easy to blame the black cat for crossing paths with me and as silly as it sounds there is nothing I could do about that but the things mentioned above could have been controlled if I was better prepared, BUT now I revert back to the true meaning of the black cat in my culture. In Egyptian culture it resembles grace and poise. It tells me that despite all the shortcomings, I am able to to give myself the excuse that if i think I can't do something surely I might fail but at least it will be done with grace and poise. 😉💓💯💀🙌🖖 #blackpanthertattoo#fistsup#powertothepeople#graceandpoise#blackcats
Wow, what can I say?! First off, there's no greater gift than getting a book from a person that I aspire to be like (who I met just recently) but also to finish a book in such a short time frame is so exciting because it shows me that these type of people see it in me, they owe me nothing and they want to see me transform into a version of my best self; which encourages me A) to get real friends who do this in real life and B) level up to those type of people around me because they not only want to see me win for myself but also they want to win because of me. When I win, they win!
I could go on and on about the times I've tried to create this for myself in the past (and with the wrong people/platform/business model) and failed to succeed, but I'm proud of myself for diving into it, getting a feel for it, quitting (pumped money I didn't have into it) than continue to do something I believed in but at the same time wasn't sure how to decide on the right way to go about it so I had moments where I felt it wasn't completely the right fit for me.
Being in total denial about my future while also refusing to accept anything but creating something for myself and almost up for anything :) I never told myself this is just like all the other times .. instead I choose to say this is it !!! It's for real this time, and I know it because I got the gift of knowledge from the jump and that my friend is (without having to say) in most cases rarely given freely so without a doubt I believe this time it's different.
I used to listen to naysayers blame it on the product or service but this book explains to the difference between them and us. Come hell or high water ✌ #toodles#fryay #
#happyvalentinesday#loveistheway#itallbeginshere ... 7 years ago, today I opened my mailbox and received this letter as a reminder of the gift of love that exists for my soul (sole) purpose. Initially, I didn't realize the impact it had on me until I had no one to turn to that understood me and so I would lock myself in my room pleading with God to free me from bondage.
It's been a long journey and there's never a moment where I don't feel like I can't fall back into that .. maybe not in the same way but manipulation is an art form these days and no matter how far I've come I realize until the day I die, I am not exempt.
But this goes so far as to remind me who's love is the greatest! Who's love is the purest, and the most sought after! #itscontagious
Nothing can compare! I sent it to someone in jail who told me that the letter touched their heart and moved them in ways that strengthened their faith. If all I did was believe this for myself with all my mind, strength and heart then #yippie but I'm glad I was able to share the message with others who know of a God but fail to worship Him. Our hope is the #gospel will continue to spread to serve others and get our minds moving in the direction of soundness, loyalty and intimacy with our Creator.
