What's up beautiful people?! I know I have been MIA but it was much needed. For the past few months, I have been focusing my attention to kicking the the word "trying" out of my vocabulary and making moves to reach my goals. The biggest obstacle in my way?..ME! The one factor that I have the power to change. I have been the biggest road block to accomplishing my dreams. Most of it was that I was because of NO decisions were being made. My mind was running in a million different directions and I was really going nowhere. I had all these big ideas with no action behind these elaborate plans that I was writing down and telling people. Talk is cheap. That's why I could afford so much of it. But action costs; time, energy, effort, blood, sweat, tears, and yes, sometimes money. Actions also yield the best results.
I had to be realistic with myself and my dreams. What was tangible and what was hype. I had to stop making excuses and start making moves. I might not be where I want to be but I am willing to make the sacrifices now to be where I want to later. I'll giving more insight in the next few posts. Stay tuned!!

The "Man Upstairs" has a very interesting way of implementing people in your life at the right time. Last week, we got a substitute teacher in our room. We started conversing and clicked! He is a few years older than me but we think along the same path. It's hard to meet people with like mind but when you do, there is an instant respect and familiarity that blossoms from it. We were throwing our life stories and future goals at each other and finding a lot of similarities in them.
This goes to show you that sharing your passion can lead to building critical relationships. When someone is passionate and genuine about a cause or idea, it exudes through their pores. And more importantly, you can see it through their actions. Hopefully one day we will cross paths again and turn our passion for uplifting the youth into something that can change lives. We shall see!
