You are one NO, closer to your yes..
You are one NO, closer to your yes..
Let’s face it, we’ve all gotten to a low point. As much as I am in high spirits, believe me when I say it’s been an internal struggle. With everything I have going on… oh if you knew my life, you’d be wondering why I haven’t tapped out.
Well, Here are my top three strategies I use to motivate myself:
These again, are are my motivators I use to keep myself encouraged (it really doesn’t take much to get me moving). I speak to those who are at a stand still and are reluctant to move. Those who question why even keep trying. At this point I’m at the stage where I have nothing to lose.
Where has the time gone? Tamia, my Mia.
Standing, walking, and talking!
Soon, I’ll look up to your stretched out hands asking for the keys *sniffs*
It has been amazing… watching you grow this past year, and I am looking forward to every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month, every year, every waking [and sleeping that I can get] moment, both happy and sad, to come.
I want you to always know that I as your mother will always do my best to teach you right from wrong, guiding you in the right direction and steering you away from the wrong, to the best of my judgement.
Always know, that with God, all things are possible, as He is your strength, your rock. We will continue to pray, and as I grow stronger in my faith the man above, so will you, until you feel either able to establish a relationship on your own with him, or if [God forbid] you feel there can’t be one.
It is my job to teach and guide you. It is yours to continue to stay on that path.
There is still a lot you have to learn about this world [as do I] but, know that I will always be here to help you.
I pray that I continue to show you just as much love and support as I have always wanted.
I apologize for not figuring out what your cries meant. For the most part I got them down, although there were some I just couldn’t decipher. There may come a time where you look to me for answers and I just can’t give them to you. I leave you with this at the end of your first year: Be patient, be kind, and steadfast. Pray, meditate, and he will lead you.
Always remember that, Mama loves you. Always.
Happy First Birthday (Sept. 18, 2016)
You see, I’ve been wanting to launch my blog and expect for readers to automatically gravitate. I know I have a lot to say that’s worth reading. So here’s what’s been holding me back:
So there was this webinar that I’ve reviewed about a week prior that gave me some ideas on how to get started. And then it dawned on me that I have commitment issues.
I’ve never carried out a project to its entirety unless there was a grade or consequence to it being incomplete. You know, I think this is the first time that I’ve admitted that out loud. Why do I start something and never finish it when my life is centered around setting goals? I love goals, they’re my motivators to living life!
Anywho, one of the suggestions was to spy on my potential audience: i.e. read comments on posts pertaining to my interests and see what readers thought the writer lacked and solve those problems. While I thought, genius move, what if I don’t want to do that? I agreed with the first suggestion, to see what readers are saying to writers, but had a hard time wrapping my head around part 2. I decided to take the host of the webinars advice, I just began to explore WordPress a little more. In doing that I looked into more of what my areas of interest were, and in doing that I found a topic that brings my entire lifestyle blog into one category: self-help.
In reading more posts about this topic, I stumbled across an exercise to do when my mental is feeling clouded: prompts..
This is the stage in which I am in my life. I just completed a contracted position and have not landed anything else. So this is the perfect time to start my ventures. It’s like I’m in metamorphosis. I’m brewing, I’m nesting, and soon I will hatch, scream! Ready to take on the world.
