I originally started my blog because I witnessed so many military members go to work and go home and just sleep or watch T.V. I saw so many great people not invest in themselves outside of work. This is mentally and physically. I thought why not share all of my little hobbies outside of work to motivate them.
While trying these many different hobbies I honestly started and stopped so many times. When life hit me I stopped. When I felt unmotivated I stopped. When it felt hard I stopped. When work was taking over my life I stopped.
I thought man, people probably thinking she don’t know what she wants. She so inconsistent. That was my fear, people judging me for thinking I was lost and confused. But that was the truth, and that shit hurt. I didn’t know what I wanted. I mean who wants anyone to know that? It makes you feel so exposed and vulnerable. But I still persisted forward regardless and it led me closer to my own purpose in life.
As my friends would say in high school I’m always giving MLK speeches. I mean, I still do. I love talking and not about myself, I love listening to other people and most of all I love helping people.
So many times we hold on to things that aren’t good for us and yet we’re too scared to do the things that will satisfy our souls.
I will say this, don’t do it for the money, do it because it’s your passion and desire. Only then will the money and everything else fall in place. I wouldn’t rush the process, I wouldn’t expect people supporting you right off the jump because some just won’t understand.
Don’t let their lack of support or the lack of followers keep you from going after what you love. Take it one step at a time and dots will connect……..
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs
