Embrace it. Stop running from who you are, destiny

30 May

Embrace it.

 

Stop running from who you are, destiny will find you. And, once you embrace your destiny, you be come free. I can’t tell your story but I can definitely tell mine. Whether you understand it or not, is on you.

 

My life’s journey has taught me so much, and one of my recent lessons was meeting people halfway.  That does not mean you have compromised who you are. It allows others to share they’re talents as well. 

 

Look, “the reality is there are lions out there!”, as my mom would say. And, we must learn to fight. But, be gentle at the same time. 

 

No one knows your story, and nobody can tell your story like you can. We all have a story. The difference is, some of us only dream and then they’re others who put work behind there dreams. With the combination of faith and work you will be a winner every time. 

 

The good part about the new America for example, NeNe Leakes, Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty, etc, being you natural born self can make you a millionaire overnight. 

 

I don’t want to talk your head off. But, there is one something I want you all to do with me. If you will share this message, with at least 10 people you genuinely care about, secondly and memorize what has helped me sooo much these past few years. 

 

Ephesians 6:12 

 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

 

I love you all,

 Evolving?  What does that really mean?  Webster’s meaning, is “

24 May

 

Evolving? 

 

What does that really mean? 

 

Webster’s meaning, is ” develop gradually, esp. from a simple to a more complex form”. What a great definition of the word, I could not have come up with anything better. It’s nothing worse in my opinion when one does not evolve. 

 

Things are much different now then they were 20 years ago, hell let’s say 10 years ago. So ask yourself in the last 10 years, what have I learned, what bad habits have I broken, and what goals were met?

 

 I must say, personally speaking, I have learned so much in the last 10 years. Not by sitting in a classroom, just everyday life. Life has taught me so much, it’s taught me compassion, it’s also taught me to love all people no matter what our differences might be.

 

I can truly say I am a full-fledged adult, not just by age, everyday I’m evolving.

What’s going on?!

17 May

 

Crazy busy renovating my dads house, de-cluttering, and still growing Darnell’s Bar. To be honest with you I’m pretty proud of myself for staying focused on all three tasks, I’ve never been good at multi-tasking. But, being a small business owner it is something I learned to do.

 

I also want to put a little bug in your ear. What I’ve learned through my journey is to never sweat the small stuff(BULLSHIT), I keep my eyes on the prize and do my best to make shit happen! 

 

Talking about turning lemons into lemonade, OMG if you only knew…

Believe it or not, I’m pretty lost for

1 May

Believe it or not, I’m pretty lost for words, I give all praise to God for all of his many blessings!

 

Through it all I’m still here, and not only am I here, my place is growing. For such a small space with no sign, limited parking, and of course you know who ^ … 

 

God has brought me through and I believe the best is yet to come. What I’ve learned through all of this is to be consistent, have tough skin, stay prayed up, and endure. I was once told from one of my favorite mentors, “It takes a special person, to build, and especially from ground up.”.

 

I think out loud a lot on my blog, because the majority of you have been so supportive of my continued growth, and in my heart I really believe you understand where I’m coming from.

 

I love you all and you have shown me how much you love me back.
