The Conversation: Power through what you’re going through.
On the periphery to most I look cool, calm and collected, most of the time. The truth of the matter is if you could really see what’s going on inside you’d think Irma was going to strike again. I can handle a lot of what life throws at me. I’ve got a heart of gold, but can also be a hard ass. On occasion, there are times when I get discouraged or disappointed with myself or someone else I need to give myself an adult time out. The truth is I’m not going to be the best at everything. There’s always going to be someone giving more, doing more and getting better results.
Some days, weeks, months, or even years can down right suck. We all have a different set of skills we bring to the table at any given time. What I bring to the table today may be better or worse than what I bring tomorrow. What I offer is very different than what you offer. No better, no worse, just different. How you choose to deal with what life throws at you is cool, just don’t wallow for long.
I’ve got an arsenal of tools in belt. Some I learned in teacher training, others along the way. Whether it’s listening to Kanye West’s Power blasted on repeat, eating an entire bag of twizzlers, meditating, or soaking in a bubble bath, I allow myself time to decompress and go through my shit. This seems to lights a fire under my ass. What’s yours? I know when it’s time to pull up my big girl pants and put one foot in front of the other. Time to strive for the best version of me.
The fact is I don’t have the right to complain. My life is pretty darn sweet compared to many with abundant opportunities and comfy amenities. I know that I’m the only one in charge of my emotions and at the end of the day the one calling the shots. I’m the one with all the power to Power through what I’m going through. So raise the bar for yourself and live the life you want!
From the lyrical mind of Mr. West, “Motherf*ucker we rolling”
