Thinking Out Loud & Being Honest


It’s been a minute since I’ve wrote something but here I am now.

Something that I’ve realized this past couple months is this… People can see something in you at times and see it from the beginning of them meeting you but until you can see it for yourself you will ignore it. Over the years I’ve had people say your a business man or your a musician without me ever saying I do music or have a love for business. I would question God and say, “Is this true”? Is this where I’m suppose to be? As I stated earlier in the year on one of my post that I am the Overthinker and if I can’t come to a solution from Brandon’s Head University then It’s a no go were not doing it. I rather not do it and not Fail rather than try and maybe succeed and Fail. That’s really what it comes down to when you try something… You have that 50/50 chance that this might work. At least you have something to bank on and learn from if you do fail but not trying gives you zero results. 

I just want to encourage everyone to not waste time and to get started on your dreams. We all have gifts and talents and if its tugging on you to dig deeper and work the gift then do just that, but do it 100%.

Will you Connect the Dots?

I’ve been puzzled on this thought for some time and now I’m just going to lay it out on paper and let you hear my insight.

I’ve always been the kind of person that stuck to a certain method or wasn’t really open to trying something new. Kind of like the 5 year old who says no to eating broccoli or any green vegetable. They don’t know the importance of it, but all they know is that it doesn’t taste sweet like a snack. So they rule out everything associated in that category and call it nasty. Even as adults we are the same way. Where does this come from? I’m glad you ask me. Most of it is a sense of “fear”. If you’ve never went golfing but say that you don’t like to do it, How would you ever know that you don’t like it? If you’ve never been to a concert but you say you don’t like crowds and think they’re overrated, how would you really know that you don’t like Concerts?

We must begin to connect the dots in our Life. Connecting the dot means living through and going through it. We have to remember to enjoy life to the fullest. Don’t be afraid to try it even if you have negative thoughts about it, you might even learn to like it, once you’re in the moment of it.

If we don’t connect the Dots, we will become dull, boring, and dried up LOL

No honestly, there’s so much more to life than what we think. If we could see pass our down falls and the things that we are going through and actually find some type of Joy around it, then we could discover and continue to learn about ourselves and the world around us.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to go for a bike ride. I usually go with a friend but they were unavailable. So going on this bike ride for me was a test. I wanted to take the trail by my house, so I did just that. While on the trail, I looked to my left, and seen this body of water out of no where. So I slowed down and turned around. I found an opening and walked my bike through. There it was, I was only 5 mins. away from my house and discovered this piece of land and water. It was a park, but just not any park. It was breath taking and quiet! I’ve never looked at nature (God’s creation) in a peaceful way like this. There was even a bench in front of the lake. So i set down and listened to what was around me. It was so refreshing. if I had I never got up the courage up to ride my bike alone, this moment would have never happened. So will you connect the dots given to you?

New Leaf Turned… Ready for this Adventure

My birthday was September 4th! I have a lot of plans for this new year of Life… I feel like i have a fresh start all over again.

I want to make this year of 27 breath taking. I want to work my hardest to reach my goals and dreams and jump on any and

Every opportunity that comes my way. I have lots to write about and will be sharing more upcoming soon. Stay tune! 

Let it Go 

A friend not too long ago gave me a simple command and said “Let it Go”. When I heard these 3 words it startled me. I mean I was terrified. Are you out of your mind? After all that I’ve been through and sacrificed, I’m just suppose to “Let it Go”. 
How many times have we held on to something or someone that wasn’t good for us? I just ran out of fingers trying to type and count! What I’ve realized that the situation is even deeper than it seems. Somewhere along the lines we can become comfortable with our situation and actually become numb to the feeling of being hurt or let down. I mean we become used to the motions. It’s become our Secuirty Blanket, because this is the place that we know and that we love so deeply. As I’ve said before our comfort zone can become our crutch. 

So I’ve decided to let the crutch go and see what happens. I actually did what my friend told me to do and simply just “Let it Go”.
It’s the only way that we can move forward in life. We were not made to hold things inside us and pretend that everything is ok because in the long run it’s going to come out and we will have to deal with it eventually. 

Take inventory of your life ask yourself
What are somethings that I need to let go?
Let’s be Free and Move Forward

Embrace Opportunities

I can’t believe that we are in the 5 month of 2016 already. It seems like Christmas was yesterday. Even the seasons are moving fast. Over the past few months I’ve been faced with many opportunities. Some of the opportunities were well viewed. I mean you were able to see the pros and cons of the opportunities and then some of them you had to dig  a little deeper or as I said in some blogs ago “Take a chance”. No matter the walk of life we chose, we will always be faced with opportunity which lead us to making the decision of saying “yay” or Nay”. As always when I want to gain more clarity on topics, I take a look at their meaning.

Webster’s Dictionary defines Opportunity as a favorable juncture of circumstances, “the halt provided an opportunity for rest and refreshment” or a good chance for advancement or progress. So many times I’ve encountered opportunities and didn’t understand the outcome so I made my decision based on my knowledge and experience of the present moment. What I’ve come to realize when accepting and opportunities, it is simply what you make of it. Of course some of us probably can relate to having a opportunity come up and it sounded good at surface, and was promising.  I remember working with a company about 5 years ago, they presented me with an opportunity to advance and it did come with more responsibility. So I buckled down and went above and beyond the call of duty to show that I was more than capable of handling more responsibilities. Months and months past and I seriously got tired of the false hope that was given from my boss, so I resigned. So for a while I had become weary of hearing the excitement of opportunities and just saying no thanks because of the world we live in today we say “I want it Now”.

Nowadays, I’ve been able to let myself go and make the decision of taking every opportunity that comes to me. I’ve learned that every thing you do or want to acquire is going to require some work and effort. You may get it handed to you but in order to keep it and maintain it, you’re going to have to put some elbow into it. You never know what creativity or gift you will tap into just by stepping out and learning something new. Don’t let the opportunity make you, You make the opportunity!
