This week

So this week so far hasn't been the greatest of the great...

No Kiamsha on Monday you would think would start off my week pretty good, but for some reason me coming off a long weekend I still didn't get caught up on any rest...and then on top of that I lost my smart trip card (card you use on the Metro to get back and forth) and I hadn't registered it and I needed to get home and just paid rent with NO money...but GOD made a way and I got $20 from my home girl and was able to get home and have a little change until I got paid on Tuesday...AND my other home girl got me a fair card that I still need to pick up that will help me out too...

Tuesday the doctor's appointment that took me and hour and a half to get through, I had to go to the grocery store and cook and still wasn't sitting down until like what 8pm...I was actually supposed to have a dinner date but that pretty much fell through...

Wednesday, my best friend's grandmother passes away...that totally took me off guard...she had just went to the hospital...me trying as always to be the "friend" gets caught in the middle of the two other friends...so I told both of them about themselves and was like I am OUT of it...I hate being in the middle of stuff and then it seems like you are talking behind someone's back...man we getting to old for this...so I had to lay it out...that was draining..
We had a Kiamsha board meeting last night in which NO one showed up so that was a total waste of my time...I could have BEEN home...or went to check on the BF...with all the stress and everything my stomach was in nots and I was in some kind of pain last night...man...

but then I got home and saw the most beautiful thing...pictures of my god-sons from the Easter to their birthday pictures, to their family photo...and that just filled me up with joy...all that other petty stuff just went out the window...I brought myself back...back to that peace that I love to be in back to that peace that place that I need to stay in that place that I love to be in...why I am allowing myself to slip back into the darkness of stress and crap just because of the things that are going on around me...

and then there is TODAY...so you would think I may still have an attitude or be stressed...

naw buddy...you don't get but ONE life and you better live it to the fullest

even with petty arguing and drama, and still some HONEST fear going on around you, there is always joy...just look out your work window and look at how beautiful the sky looks or how picture perfect the trees look this time of year...or just think about how despite it all, you still are able to pay your rent/mortgage, your car note, buy clothes, buy shoes, eat, drink and be merry...and for the most part have good health, family and friends...

With all of those little blessings going on around me, how or why should I be stressed or blown or pissed or disappointed...again, life is too short...we only got one, so why not ride it til the wheels fall off the right way, God's way...the peaceful way...

Love life, live, learn, and grown...let's keep it moving and stay strong...love who YOU are and be the BEST person you can possibly be...

Let's get it!

@negropino-I got to stay positive...its not about a glas being half full or half empty its about just saying "dag man, at least I got some water..." and just being happy about that...being thankful about that...no matter what we really have no reason to be upset...brush your shoulders off and keep moving...its not always easy but we got to do it...

@rik-thanks hun...you know you good peoples too
