When I graduated college, my Mother was going around the neighborhood and telling complete strangers who would listen that her baby graduated college. I, on the other hand, was so embarrassed. I would run into someone in the neighborhood and they would say “Congratulations”. With a completely confused look on my face, I’d stare back at them not sure what the congratulations are for. Then the sentence of embarrassment would be said: “Your mother told me you graduated”. At this point, I’d say humbly thanks or thank you and try to get out of the conversation as soon possible. As I’m walking down the street, thinking to myself why does she keep telling everybody? What I didn’t realize was my mother was celebrating my accomplishments for me. (Not a bad thing). I was afraid of what people might think if I was too excited about an accomplishment I had conquered. I never realized that what I went through before going to college was just a way of showing how strong I am. So getting through college was a way of showing just how resilient I was. To me, if you come from troubled backgrounds, struggle with different challenges with learning, or people telling you can’t-do something that you’ve set your heart on and then you conquer it. You honey just achieved an accomplishment that you should be proud to celebrate.Stop worrying about what people think.I had a hard time with celebrating accomplishments because I had people in my inner circle that I didn’t want to offend or make them feel like I was bragging. All the while, dimming my own light because I didn’t want to lose someone in my circle. What I realize when not speaking of those accomplishments you can’t see how far you’ve come because you are not celebrating you. Don’t be too busy celebrating others and forget to celebrate you. I made that mistake. I always want to see everybody in my life or outside of my life do good. Whether it was them getting a new job, growing their family, or just making a step to becoming a better individual. I was their cheerleader. All the while forgetting to be my own. So here is my motivation to you. You can wish others well but don’t forget to wish yourself well in the process. Stop dimming your light.SHINE AS BRIGHT AS YOU LIKE!!!!!
What is stress? Stress is the importance, significance, emphasis placed on something. Here is my story on how I stressed my self out throughout my school years. I was one of those students that would stay up for hours to complete assignments that would have probably taken a genius a couple of minutes to complete. I on the hand was trying to make sure I did the assignment to perfection. I had to learn the hard that stressing myself to point of staying up all night and getting up the next day was not the best thing for a student trying to excel in one of hardest fields. Computers are a subject that needs your full attention when the professor or teacher is speaking because a slight mistake could cost you some vital information and cause a very expensive problem. Just like with doctors and nurses they have to fully pay attention to what’s in a patients chart. You can’t give a patient who has sugar food with sugar in it because that could be a deadly mistake. With electronics, it’s no different. So I say all this to say when you are physically tired don’t be like me and stay up all night knowing that you need to focus the next morning. Go TO BED!!! Tell me a time that you was stress?
When I think of encouragement, I think of confidence in one’s ability to complete a task that has been giving to them. Throughout my high school years, my dear mother was that encouragement. As well as many others that came into my life in that short period of time. My high school years was a little crazy but I still had the encouragement of the people who wanted to see me excel. For the remainder of my high school years, I was homeschooled with two teachers and a tutor that became what I considered to be my encouragement team. These were the people that knew me when everything was falling apart before going off to college and completing what many people thought I could not do. So when I say encouragement is something that will keep you moving in the right direction it will. I’m living proof of what having the right people in your corner can do for you. Yes, it will take some effort on your part but I’m pretty sure you can work up the strength to go the extra mile. Who are your encouragement team members?
Passion is described as a strong and barely controllable emotion. Now when I ask you what you are passionate about you will say…… Think about what you wanted to be as a kid. Some children will say a doctor, lawyer, basketball player but when it comes time to follow that dream that passion changes to something else. My passion was to be a teacher then I realized I loved electronics. So I went to school for computers. Now my passion is to see how I can change people’s mindset. So my passion has changed a little. In today’s world, we will find many things that we enjoy but there is only one thing we are passionate about.Let me know what you are passionate about?
Whether you wake up in the morning, afternoon, or evening there is something that motivates you. I’ll tell you what motivates me. I’m able to get another chance at trying to be a better me. To me, is motivation enough. Don’t get it confused, I do have my moments when I don’t feel like moving or I don’t want to be bothered. I’m human but sometimes I realize that my journey to getting as far as did helps me understand the meaning of motivation. We as humans need things to motivate us to keep moving. Great!!!!! What better motivation than to find something your so passionate about and turning that into something that makes you smile. 😊 Even if it means taking a break and recharging our batteries we always come back to that thing. Something in us will never let us lose that motivation. So here’s a challenge dig deep into your soul and find what motivates you to get up.
Undefined Love is something we all have within us as a human race. It doesn’t matter if you are a daughter, son, husband, wife, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather we all have undefined love. I started this site thinking about my mother’s love for me. Along my high school years, my mother had to fight to help me attained a high school diploma. Many people who were apart of my inner circle did not know what I went through as a high school student who was denied the right to receive my high school education. With my mother’s undefined love I was able to do that and more. My hope for this site is that it gives others the courage that my mother gave me when I felt like I didn’t have anything left to give.
