Have you had that moment where you are just tired? You are over it all. You want some energy, but no matter what you do, you are just exhausted. Now the healers will say, "Are you stressed?" "What are you thinking about?"
Don't these questions annoy you?
Why? Because we are continually running these questions through our heads every single day.
If we had the answer, then we wouldn't be feeling this way.
Well, can we take a moment and breathe?
Breathe with me
Now say it with me: WE MADE IT.
To say that we have no reason to stress or feel funny is a bald-faced lie to ourselves and our people.
In 2020 we witnessed a world shut-down. We saw so much death and sickness.
We lost our jobs. We lost our loved ones.
The systems in place did not support us in more ways than we can explain. So yes, you have every reason in the world to feel everything you feel.
But can we change perspectives even if this for this moment?
January is almost over. We made it through the first month of 2021. While this may or may not be exciting, we can still wake up this morning and say, "Hey, I am here."
Faither, I'll be honest. I get asked a 1000 questions a day. A lot of the time, my answer is "I don't know." I can no longer worry about the things I have no control over. I know that there are deadlines. But I've spent so much of my life running here, worrying about this, crying about that, losing sleep, choosing between sleep and food, and now I am at a point where you know what? What's done is done. When I get a chance, then I will do it. If it fails because of me, then I will take full accountability.
But one thing 2020 taught me is that time is made up, and we do not have control over many things that we are worried about. A lot of time, we stress about what we can not control.
However, that does not mean we are not entitled to how we feel. Make sense? No?
Let me give you an example. I am 29, and I have no parents. My dad died of a massive heart attack. My mother died in a car crash. I had no control over either of those situations. But every day, I think about how my parents will never witness me walk down the aisle, never attended the graduation; they are not here to see my new home purchases.
While it still hurts, and I have every right to feel the way I feel, I can sometimes hurt myself by saying, "I should have been there, I should not have said this, I wish I could do this." And, of course, the list can go on. The truth is, I have nor did I have ANY control over the situation.
While my mind wants to sit here and play every scenario, my body wants to get up and honor their legacy. And guess what, sometimes it works, and other times I am crying my eyes and in bed all day.
So, while there are things that I think about on a daily, I do choose to celebrate that I have made it.
I am celebrating every day that I am here.
I can write this blog.
I can record my YouTube.
I get to see my Titi every day.
I have my siblings.
I have my nieces and nephews.
I have my business.
I have self-awareness.
I love myself.
I choose to celebrate. I want to celebrate with you too, Faither.
We made it. We truly made it. Celebrate with me!
Tell me something that you want to celebrate today!
We want to celebrate with you!
Say it with me, Faither: "We made it."
Remember, Love you the way you love the world!
I love you all.
