Let me apologize to those who have chosen to unfollow me in the last week. I am sorry that you did not like my effort to supplement the income that takes care of my house..
Okay now that is out of the way…heyyyy!!!
I hope you guys are having a wonderful Saturday..I surely am trying too..
The sun is shining, no rain, nice breeze and I am not HOT..what a blessing. I am working on getting the remainder of my continuing education completed for my state license for my Occupational Therapy Assistant, so that I can keep my job…lol
Anyway, I have been sitting here thinking about how foolish my thought process was when I was in my 20’s, how easy I thought things would be if I just worked hard and kept my head in the books. I did that and enjoyed life but I still had no clue about what being an adult was about. Don’t get me wrong I paid bills, was responsible for myself and helped others but my thoughts were not invested in others like they are now.
My birthday is in August and my twin and I will be 47 years old. I like that, it means that I have almost been on this earth for half a century…wow! With the way the world is turning, it is a blessing for us all to see another day. I thank God for saving me…
Think back to when all you wanted to do was grow up so you could be “grown.” How old were you? What was it that you wanted to do that was so important that you were willing to leave behind childhood free will and fewer responsibilities. Sure we all had things that we were charged to do and our parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles and siblings held us to them. But, did you income or talents support an entire household and when you were sick there was no choice for you to stay home and rest, you had to go to work and stay all day, no exceptions..I can say that I have been at work with a fever of over 102 degrees and was told that I had to stay because there was no one to cover me….I remember that like it was yesterday…
From that day on I know that I had to take responsibility of me, because no matter what others say that they will do for you, people will fail you….you will fail you..We should only put our trust in God. I believe that..
Now that I am older, I realize that things that ruled me as a young adult are of no concern to me now. Like, my hair, nails, clothes, my car, my house…those things are present but I am simply not in the frame of mind to care if others like my stuff.. I will admit that I still love a fresh pair of kicks..always will.
I do care more about how my heart feels and how I treat others..that is more important to me than goofing off or gossiping. I don’t talk on the phone much, I am on social media as many of you can see on a daily basis, but I am not tearing others by name or pinpointing those who wrong me or whom I disagree with, but simply making my point about something. We are all entitled to our own opinions..express yours..who is holding you silent? Forgive yourself for mistakes, leave the past behind, instead look ahead and be happy that you had a chance to get your life right today. Be on your Grown Woman/Man ish..be the person you want, don’t take others words for you more deeply than your words to yourself..Grown Folk Talk…
Above all Love God..
