Hey gang, it has been years since I have written. In the last couple of years, i have learned many lessons. i would like to share a couple of them with you.
1) Show appreciation to those who share the knowledge of getting through some tough times. With out these people, it is difficult to navigate back into the sun. There will always be trials, and always be failures. Thus, it is how we become tough, and how we learn. I got duped into thinking that an easy soltion was gonna fall into my lap. Kudos to those it has happened to, but it doesn't look like that's in my future. Almost 2 1/2 years ago, i made the decision to ground myself, and build a solid "structure" from the ground up! Wiping away the bad, and holding close the good. (Which brings me to my next point)
2) Know that there will always be predators hunting those who work hard, and try to do the right thing. Whether it's physical, emotional, or financial, these animals hunt for what we have because they don't feel the have what it takes to acquire it on their own. It's a part of life, and I am more ready for them than ever! Mainly because I have surrounded myself with great people! I can not stress it enough!
To sum it up, make sure you spend your time & effort on those who care about you! Stop trying to impress those who will only use you, or your talent. While wasting your time by "impressing people you don't like, with things you don't need, with money you don't have", the ones who will sincerely help & support you, will miss you! I think we can all agree, they are the ones that really matter!
I close up with a great quote, from a great friend... "Tough times never last, but tough people do!" (Thank you Paulie!)
In the next couple of weeks, I continue the new Chapter with meeting more good people, and add to the new positive events I have blessed with!
Until then, Rock On! BBG...
