Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

SPRINKLE OF THOUGHTS

The past, present and future…while each are all individuals, none will not exist without the other. Without yesterday, there won’t be a today and without a today, there won’t be a tomorrow. Our friendships, relationships, views, values, have all been influenced by our past. Even who we are, has a great deal of what we experienced and who we intend to be. Everything is intertwined in our truth, what the world and society has taught us and what we want to build and identify as our own. But if you focus too much on the past or the future, somehow the present becomes a burden and hard to enjoy.

The past:

Take time for all things, great haste makes great waste.

Lately I’ve been reflecting on the notion of time. Everyone says time heals everything. Time always tells if something is worth it or not. Things happen for a reason and all that stuff. While I’ll love to wait and observe and let things fall into place, patience and I aren’t always friends so it gets hard. Some days I want things to go my way. Some days I want to do things on my own. Some days I just wanna rest even when I’m supposed to be working. You can’t always get things as you wish but does that mean while waiting we do nothing?

I have so many projects I want to work on and most times I’m scared because I have all these what ifs and maybes running through my mind. What if it doesn’t go through? What…

“Sometimes I feel like it’s me against the world when in reality, it’s me against myself.

Like I always say, life’s shouldn’t be as complicated as we make it seem. Sometimes all the trouble we’ve been through, all the drama, the consequences of our choices; all of those were not because it was destiny. Some scars we have we caused them. Some decisions we made them. It’s not always about the devil or another human responsible for our issues. Sometimes it’s us.

Looking back at my life, there are way too many things I could have avoided if I had listened. If I was obedient. If I was patient. If I wasn’t so emotional. If I had learned how to let go. If I didn’t give up etc etc. I also realized I was carrying hurt from the past and bringing it into my relationships and friendships. Things I didn’t…

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.

I feel like we focus so much on relationships we forget to talk about friendships whereas healthy friendships are the foundation of healthy relationships. Lately I’ve been going through a season where I have been pouring so much into others thus ending up being empty or feeling like I was doing too much, I was not enough and wondering why nothing was being reciprocated. Not like I was doing all that to be recognized or I expected a reward but when you are a giver and you don’t receive, you can go as far as question yourself and if you deserve certain things

Types of friends:

I know we can go all day classifying people and the type of friendships we can have but I’ll focus on two: the givers and receivers/takers.

Givers:

They are selfless human beings. The happiness and comfort…

Living off people’s expectations/acceptance will kill you.

If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection. ~ Lecrae

Every time I read the quote above, it hits home because I can relate to it. I’ve learned over the years that I have a hard time moving on with my plans because I always fear what people would say and think about me. I overthink everything even when my heart screams and yearns for me to simply do it. Validation! While telling your business to some people could be a good thing cuz you’d want to know their opinions, suggestions and tactics; it could be damaging if you depend on those reactions and opinions.

1) It’s okay to live a life others don’t understand.

We live in a world where everyone is trying to be everyone else but themselves. We follow trends, duplicate what others have done. If we do so much of copy work…

Changes…

It takes a lot of self reflection to realize that sometimes we are the ones who block some of our blessings. I’ve watched myself fall over and over again. I’ve experienced disappointments and the ones that hurt the most were choices made by me. How could I let this happen? Why did I let this happen? Why did I choose to not see my worth? To not believe in myself? Why did I choose to go back and forth to my past instead of focusing on my present and my future? Why? Why? But I came to a point where I was tired…of living this way. Of inconsistency. Of plotting against myself. I wanted better, I needed to be better. So I said: ENOUGH!

No more settling

No more sleepless nights

No more crying over spilled milk

No more letting shit slide

No more guessing and inconsistency

No more…
