A 39 Birthday Post

As I close out my 30’s, I can only think about the previous 9 years and the expectations I had for myself. I won’t lie to you, by 39 I really thought I would be a millionaire. It’ hasn’t happened, but I think I have made the shift to put in the work to really make it happen within this next decade. Since I plan on being around for a long time, I have no problem with living my 40’s and 50’s in abundance.

At 29 I knew I would spend my entire 30’s being a father. This year with missing all my daughters games this season, my grandma passing and COVID-19, I’m on a mission to be a better father. Literally doing whatever it takes to make sure my daughter has more of my time and attention. I may be not so low-key suffering from separation anxiety and the only why I know how to cure is to really show her the best of me as much as possible.

Every single relationship I had with damn near every woman in my life changed drastically in my 30’s. Some positive, some negative and even some pending. I’m probably not the greatest friend, lover, son, spouse or enemy to all of them. At this stage of 39, I’m literally too selfish to give a fuck. Sorry. We’ll talk later, or not.

I can also confidently say, I’m not the same person I was on my 30th birthday. That can be deemed a positive or a negative based on who you talk to. The realest thing I can say is, I still want a lot of things at 39 that I wanted at 30. 31-38 helped me realize the changes and sacrifices I have to make to get them. I’m destined for a life of abundance and I look forward to sharing that with all the people that love me or could use an assist from me.

2020 has been rough. Part of me thinks on paper this may be viewed as one of the worst years of my life. What I can tell you for a fact is that I am still inspired and I truly believe that something great is going to happen for me this year! I know what I want and I’m no longer stopping at the halfway point to get. I’m going all in! Pass or fall, I’m here to risk it all in every aspect just to say I did it the best way I knew how; My way. It won’t be pretty. People will have their opinions. What I won’t give anybody is the final vote on the decisions of my 1 life.

It is indeed a happy birthday to me.

I Woke Up Early on My Born Day

4:21 to be exact. What a blessing it is to be alive on my 38th Birthday. I know too many friends and family who literally didn’t it make to even an hour before this moment or the day of. It’s a constant reminder to make the most of my time.

I so inspired and encouraged to LIVE! Although I am celebrating life, I can’t help but think, I’m going to die one day and when this game of life is over, I don’t want to look my God in the face and we both know, I didn’t leave it all on the floor.

I’m on a mission to turn every “What If” to “Remember When” whether good or bad. I’m going to do everything on my mind and whether I pass or fail, it’s going to be a beautiful chapter in my life. Unpacking and processing the last 37 years has been therapeutic. It’s truly showing me who I was and who I want to be. I can not wait to show myself to the world in all my glory!

38! The Snub Nose! 2 BEFORE 40! I feel better than ever, I’ve officially tapped into my potential and I think I’m SEXY AF!!! It’s truly a beautiful time! This year we prepare for new experiences. We face fear. We leap. We indulge, delight and enjoy in everything this one life puts in our way and we make it the blueprint of our life till death.

Yeah, I’ve lived an interesting and beautiful life, but now it’s time to turn up. By the number, 38 is not a milestone, but mentally it’s one of the most important years of my life. The last 5 years I have fed my mind some amazing things. It’s now time I put those amazing things into action.

Welp, time to celebrate! I want all the love I can get today and in every form! I would also love to give it back! If you acknowledge me and my life today, know I truly do love you for it. Thank you!

Layla Turns 8

To my beautiful brilliant star
On her very special day
The first girl to have my heart
And melt it in every way

My reason to thrive and fight
My constant joy and light
The day of your birth
Is what made me change my life

There hasn’t been enough of
Time, Kisses and Hugs but
Know that your Daddy Loves You
And I’ll keep trying till that day comes

You are special
You have style
Continue to grow and Reign your way

You are greatness
You are loved
On this one and every day

Happy Birthday Punkinhead!

Love Daddy

We talk about how artist that actually matter don’t need to flood the market with product, How Freshmen list 2016 may be a top 5 list as well as the Queen album by Nicki Minaj. Spoiler alert! One of us feels Nicki is a better emcee than Rhapsody! All that and so much more on this weeks #BanginOnLunchTables podcast!

#37 “Happy Ron Artest”

You fall off at 35…
That’s what I heard em say
Looked at my face at 37
And I can’t relate

The realm of my shape
Is the best of my life
I refuse to age fresh fruit
Day number 9

Bottom line I’m feeling great
20 plus down today
Tried on new jeans.
37 waist
Extra Large tees
Looking slimmer in the face
Cut back on meat and dairy
Add more veggies to the plate

I pen pictures and moments
You should read about
Embrace all the love and hate
What you be about?

You ask me “what I want?”
I’m gone simply say
Cop L I A B D
It just came out today

Another chapter of life
I’m gone make it my best
Success the sole mission
So I can’t rest
Appreciate all the love
I am birthday blessed
You see me out, just say
Happy Ron Artest
