Not many people know this but I almost lost my life 3 times and I’m still here. Thought about ending my life but I’m still here. Depression and anxiety, I’m still here. God got his hands all over me….I’m here for a reason and even if it just to show his blessings are real I’m good with it! #GodDefinitelyGotMe
We really have to learn that not everyone is going to move the same we do. How I respond or react may be different from you, but that’s the beauty of being different.
How would the world look, if we all responded and acted the same?
Sometimes we are too emotionally invested in the actions of our friends and loved one. Sometimes rightfully so. But we have to know when to step back and allow them to take time to get where we are. I know its easier said then done. But we can love them from afar and be there when they need us the most. Most importantly not abandoning them.
Just a thought.
Quotes on Finding Yourself
So I was watching an interview with the talent and beautiful Phylicia Rashad. She said someone said to her this:
“An image can be broken, try and find out who you really are.”
That spoke to me tremendously. That will the quote I have in my mind when I meditate tonight.
At work we acknowledged the 34 men and women coworkers, who made the selfless contribution to drop everything and to assist with the recovery efforts at Ground Zero.
One of the speakers, spoke about how we all remember where we were when this tragedy happened. How we came together as US Citizen, no matter the religious backgrounds and race. It was a beautiful thing to see.
I remember where I was that day, at home preparing to go to my first class at MCCC. I watched as the news played and the first plane struck the first tower. I stood there in disbelief because somehow it couldn’t be real. Dazed and sadden by seeing people jumping to from windows to get away and sadly losing their lives.
I was proud of the United States as we rally together. I wish our sense of pride and love for our fellow men and women was still strong.
Please take a moment out of your day to thank a first responder, local fire fighters, police officers and fellow Americans who protect and serve our country and come to help when tragedy strikes.
Remember those loss to this senseless act of terrorism.
Music Mondays: Under The Bridge
Let me tell y’all about the first time I heard this song. I was in my teens and in a very dark place. Do you understand how you can be around a bunch of people and still feel alone?
This song made me cry every time I heard it because I felt the shit out of this. Thankfully, some saw what was going on with me and talked me into letting go of those feelings and writing things out. I still love this song, and sometimes I cry to it, but it shows me how much I have changed and where I was in life at one point.
