Passion

In life I think one should find their passion. Not what will make you famous or rich, but what you are passionate about. In the days of social media it is easy to get caught up in what looks good to the outside world and what brings you attention, but is that your passion?  What are you passionate about? What am I passionate about?

Exposure

What are you exposed to? Do you think what you are exposed to shapes how you view the world? In my mentoring this has really been on my mind. I think too often we limit ourselves.  We refuse to think or look outside the box out of fear or complacency. Why do we settle so much and not seek out other things. How can you grow or expand without seeing other things that are out in the world?

Family


The past couple of weeks have been a little rough.  2 people I care about a lot were put on hospice care.  One passed last week, one past yesterday. One was a blood relative, one was as close to me as a blood relative.  I love my family, flaws and all. My extended family, the people I consider family all play a different role in my life. Value family, spend time with family, love family.

Rest....


Long weekend....no rest....and now I realize I need it. I was supposed to go see a favorite artist tonight at a local club, but what is my body telling me to do??? REST!!!! Sometimes we get so caught up in doing things and we crash when it is too late. Rest is a part of self care which is a must.

Purpose


So are you walking in purpose? Do you know what your purpose is? I have been asking myself these questions a lot lately. Why? Because I have hit a roadblock.....good or bad, I am in a funk. Will things change? Will I realize that yes I am in purpose and God never said purpose would be easy and I must press on! We shall see....

Friendship

I don't have that many friends in life, but I am very thankful for the ones I have. They love me unconditionally and challenge me to be a better person.  We don't always agree and at times we don't get along, but we all know in the end we have love for each other and we want the best for each other. No matter distance or time when we catch up it reminds me why they are my friends!

Toxic Masculinity

Toxic masculinity (not the positive thoughts I had been having) was on my mind this morning.  Why are men so fragile? Why does the male ego have to be stroked so much? Why does a man's sexuality get easily threatened?  Ones masculinity should not be tied to the actions of others so when someone rejects or is attracted to it one should not go the the extremes of it.  I have a lot of thoughts and questions on the topic....all for now
