Happy Sunday everyone!
Anyone else's bracket busted? Surprisingly for me, I got an FB message from my co-worker that I was in the running and still had teams that are still destined for the final four. Yay me! That may change after today's games...I'll keep y'all posted!
Anywho, I know I said I need to get better about posting more. I'm trying! I'll try harder...thank you all for being so patient with me!
Anyway, over the weekend, I took a trip back to my hometown. Seeing the town now as an adult, I can barely believe my eyes. Usually when I go home, I'm visiting my family there. This happened to be the case as well when I went back. I went out to some stores with my mom to get things for my apartment and we both made the same revelation, we could not move back now...especially in the state of lives now.
But that wasn't the biggest revelation for me. The simple fact that I was able to spend time with my aunts, mom, cousins, and grandma was so precious...it almost made it seem like it was a rarity and sadly, it seems to be the way of life now.
I understand people have to build their own lives but I don't want to get to the point where I'm so busy building my life that I build walls blocking people off. When I was driving into work yesterday, I realized that I have been doing that...and somewhat intentionally too.
I cried a little bit because that is not the person I want to be...so alone and destitute that no one...not even family could reach me. I'm not saying I want to be a complete open book but I do want to return to the openness that I had instead of the focused minded person that I've become that is not even me at all.
So, i will now focus on the good of my days instead of the bad. I noticed that I have tons of notebooks from my college days so now, I will start writing tonight at least 3 things that went well today....well, I'll post it now and I would love to hear from you the 3 things that went well for you today. I hope this inspires you to really see the good of your day and to see how blessed your life really is.
1-I woke up,I'm alive, I'm still blessed. Thank you God!
2-I got a text from a friend--glad to be maintaining this friendship for several years.
3-I had a day off today--especially after a rough shift from work.
I hope to hear from you all soon!
Feel free to share on social media!
With love and blessings,
