Success is always been suggestive and a case by case basis. I’ve been watching a couple people go back and forth, slandering and arguing with each other over something that seems very small in theory. The relationship seems beyond repair where we sit now. I’ve stayed out the way of that, but it’s been something on my mind and heart so I want to say it here.
We aren’t all meant to be “winning the race” at the same time. It’s never been cool to look down on someone who may have less than you or something that isn’t of high quality to you. If that person is happy with their life and circumstance, let them live their life.
It’s also not cool to kick a person while they’re down or point and laugh when they’re at the bottom. If that person was really a friend or family to you, you should want to help them; Not watch them scratch, scrape and struggle to survive.
Also, don’t be fooled by what is portrayed. Many people have attractive lives on social media. Many people live in luxury and bliss one post at a time. Angles can be deceiving though. A person may be sleeping in that expensive car they posted. They may be stealing vacation pics of that home that you envy. They can flat out not know the people they pose with, no matter what the caption says. Don’t get wrapped up in what people display on these platforms. Be wrapped up in your own self awareness and authenticity. Make time to be happy with what you have and how you got it. Leave that “Stuntastic” behavior for the internally poor and lonely. Don’t reciprocate the disrespect. Simply remove them from your vision and plan.
Win your race. Set your pace. Focus on lapping yourself. Love.
Randomly this week, I’ve had this thought on my mind…
I’ve been broke for a long time. I’ve changed jobs, career paths, schools. Then I started changing my attitude, mindset and focus.
I won’t act like much has changed, but it has definitely made me realize that I need to have gratitude for all the things that I do have. I can only acquire more if I truly appreciate everything that is in my current reality. Recognizing the wealth of having a family, a well functioning mind, and an able body that can take me anywhere I want to go. Those are major blessings that I take for granted. I am wealthy beyond many peoples wildest dreams just for those things alone.
Yes, monetary wealth would be great, but I really need to appreciate the wealth that I already posses while living my one life.
Yesterday it became painfully obvious that my body can’t handle eating meat and animal product like it used to. That pain became literal and worse than it has been possibly ever. I been having severe fatigue lately. The pain in my back, legs and now even my arms has heightened. I just feel bad and helpless.
Even with me giving up the fast food, pork and ground beef this happened. Which means the culprit is the Chicken and Turkey I had Sunday and Monday. I’m no good to myself or my family in this kind of pain. I no longer want to feel this kind of pain. This was the revelation. The wake up call. The beckoning to make concrete changes to my lifestyle. So that’s what I’m going to do.
Right now, I have to let these toxins leave my body. Put all the good I can in and push all the bad out. Then increase the will power, consistency and dedication to reach my ideal fitness goals inside and out.
The road to end pain and inflammation begins again today…and will never stop or detour…
I’ve been playing out negative scenarios with silver linings in my mind lately…
I have been wrestling with some things mentally and emotionally lately. Part of me thinks it’s me preparing myself for the worst. However, within in that “worst” I do see greatness. My self doubt and optimism are having a party right now and my conscious is the dance floor.
What I’m thinking about is probably not meant for a public platform right now. Not even one that I control. What I will say is, I am at peace with all the good and the bad that comes with whatever is next. I think I am becoming a master of my emotions. Something I definitely wasn’t the best at in different times in my life. I thank God for that feeling. It means I’ve grown. It means I’ve evolved. It means that I am becoming a master of channeling my energy on my terms. With control comes great power. I want to feel that power eternally.
As I look through this lens on my life, I can only accept and prepare. No matter what happens, I still see great things for the future.
