Good day or summer breeze to you all. As we have entered in to our seventh month of 2021. How are you feeling as things start to get back to some what of a normal feeling? Are you still feeling as hopeful as you were in 2020? I know some of us lost some of our hopefulness. Can you feel the light or is it still a little dark?
Here is how I’m feeling. As we enter the second day of July. I feel really thankful that I was able to make it through a tough year. I may have put on the “Quarantine 15” but I am happy, healthy, and blessed. I may have loss six close people to me but one thing I can say is that I am here. I took the time to reflect on myself and figured out a way to better myself. What did you do in the quarantined months? Did you reflect or did you allow your tough thoughts to overpower you?
Back in 2020, I kept feeling like the worse had already happened but I was so wrong. At the end of 2020, my one surviving parent got sick, and I praying she made it through. Though we are not in the clear yet. I am still feeling very hopeful that things will work out in our favor. I met a really dope guy who has been in my life for a really long time. Over ten years you can say. I have accomplished some pretty amazing things which I plan on sharing soon. In the end, I’m kind of grateful that I had a tough year. One thing I can say is through it all, my purpose is showing through. I now know that I have to put myself first before all else. When you are not good. how can you give your best to others? My new saying is “Make sure you are in the best mood possible or don’t move at all.” So when I don’t feel like doing it, I don’t move. When I feel like doing it, I give it my all. My new favorite word is “NO.”
This one word is so powerful but yet so filling. I learned in the early months of 2021, that you will always have challenges. How you face them is what will make you stronger and more powerful in the end. So don’t ever feel like you have to move when the timing is off. Move when you feel like it is what’s right and what is best for you. No one can tell you how to feel or how high you must jump. No one can tell you how low you must go to feel your best. No one can tell you how to move when you don’t feel it is right. Only you can do those things. So try your best and give it your best.
Make the best of yourself and stand on your own shoulders while you are rooting for yourself. I am my biggest cheerleader and I love every minute of it. I love looking myself in the eyes and cheering myself on. I am also my biggest critic. One thing I do know is that I know how to motivate myself through some pretty hard stuff. Most of the time I do it with a smile and other times I do it with a serious face. Either way, I do what I need to do to be happy within myself.
Cheers 🥂 to making it through seven whole months of 2021.
Until next time,
