Friends!! Y’all feeling alright out there? I hope so, because I’ve got some important shit to say today!
Have you ever gotten into a space where you feel like the Energizer Bunny? You know, like you’re fully recharged?! Well that’s me currently.
I’m not sure if any of you follow B.Simone but she’s one of my favorites. If you follow her, you know that she’s not only hilarious but she’s all about manifestation. She recently turned 30 and she set a HUGE goal for her 30th birthday.
Do me a favor, click here and watch her video real quick, you won’t regret it!!
Watching that video resonated with me for several reasons but primarily because:
- I’m turning 30 in FOUR DAYS (If you haven’t noticed it’s a big deal to me.)
- Her strong faith.
- Her emotions regarding the people in her circle that helped her reach her goal.
She made me do some serious self-reflecting. I realized I had become complacent. I had lost my drive. I hadn’t reached a lot of the goals I had set for myself but I kept using the excuse of, “Life happens”. Yes it does, but I had been using that reasoning as a crutch.
As early as I can remember, my parents have always told me that I was destined for greatness and that I was going to change the world. Once I started taking an interest in writing, they always encouraged me to help others with my words and they told me it was going to pay off one day. I don’t know when or why I stopped believing them, but that all changes today!!
I decided to sit down and make another list. What did I want to accomplish? Who did I want to be? What did I want to accomplish? What did I want to change or improve about myself?
They say there’s no secrets amongst friends, so here’s my list:
I have not been this motivated or excited about my future in a LONG time and it feels damn good!! (Can’t you tell? This is my second post this week!)
You see, we can be whatever our hearts desire! We have the power to be great. We are the only ones stopping us. Circumstances only make/break you if you let them. (I’m speaking from experience here.) Create your destiny!!
So here’s what I need you to do:
- Make a list of the shit you want to do/ be/change
- Get out of your head (ultimately getting out of your own way)
- Look at your list daily and start marking shit off!
If you’re optimistic like me, you know your future isn’t going to be anything less than magical. (& if you’re not optimistic, leave a comment so I can give you some encouragement and a swift kick in the ass to help get you started)
Until next time; Be You. Do You. LOVE YOU 💜
