It will never matter what others think of you. It will always matter what YOU think of you.@iamfearlesssoul
Good evening everyone,
I hope all is well in your world, your space or whatever you call it.
I hate starting my blog this way because I am always apologizing for letting my life get in the way and being inconsistent with the blog. I still do consider this blog to be a precious gem in my life and I hate that I have neglected my blog for this long. I never intended for this blog to be abandoned but I feel…..no, I KNOW I can make this blog successful. This is something I’ve always wanted to do and I refuse to let this dream die.
I choose to live my life, regardless
I feel that it’s important that people understand this concept
You will always have some form of negativity in your life, whether it be from family, friends, or situations that life throws at you. The most important thing to remember is to remain positive and continue to push forward. As someone who has dealt with depression, anxiety, fear, and caring about what people think, I’ve had to learn to not let those things consume my spirit and put stop to my dreams. Every negative things does not deserve your time or your energy.
I thank the Lord for helping me overcome life’s situations and continuing to comfort me as I continue to live my life.
As a reminder to you, STAY STRONG!
Here are some other friendly reminders/things I’ve learned:
- You can live your life and achieve your goals.
- It’s not your responsibility to be everyone support system (i.e financially, spiritually, mentally)
- No one can live through you
- You can’t take everyone with you as you push to the top
- Let the Lord guide/follow your faith system
- If you have children or people who look up to you lead by example (you never know who is watching)
- You are not here to please others
- Everyone DOES NOT have to like your goals, dreams, or aspirations
- It’s not your fault if those around you don’t accomplish their goals and you crush your goals
- Money isn’t everything
- Leave a positive impact on the world
I hope something I have said resonates with you
LIVE YOUR LIFE REGARDLESS
I just made a recent discovery. I was going through my blog and I realized that a majority of my posts were not about my child. Although I do enjoy writing inspirational and motivational posts, the whole purpose of this blog is supposed to be about the life of a single parent. I love my son and watching him grow up is truly a blessing. Let’s me give some more details about him.
My son’s name is Jeremiah. He is 2 years old and full of life. I am not in the best situation and I know that does have an effect on how he is growing up right now. I am thankful that we have a place to live, even if it is with family. I am working to change our situation and, as my last post stated, I am trusting the process.
My son is developmentally behind on some of his learning achievements. I know my son is extremely smart and understands a lot for his age. His motor skills are freaking amazing but he lacks in the talking department. Does anyone have any suggestions to help my son communicate with me better? Any suggestions are welcome!
I am learning to stay strong in my decisions when it comes to my child. That can be difficult when you deal with opposing views. I don’t mind the way my parents raised me, I just wanna do things differently.
I hope everyone enjoyed reading this post. Feel free to leave comments if you want to.
To my readers,
Here I go again. I am THE WORST. I don’t know why I’m this way. I let life get the best of me and I neglect my blog once again. I keep telling myself to focus and post more but every time I get a boost of energy, I quickly plateau later. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I struggle with consistency. I looked at my stats and I’m shocked that my last post was about 3 months ago. Although I am shocked, I’m not surprised by my actions. Even with all that goes on in my life, I have to learn to push myself to be more consistent and trust the process.
“Trust is built with consistency.”
I know I want to be successful in the future an I understand that there is a process involved. I feel that in order to reach my goals, I must be willing to make sacrifices. I see so many success stories and I always wondered how that person got to that point. For example, I want this blog to be successful. I had wanted to start a blog for so long but I was always afraid of what my closest family and friends who think. It got to a point where I just said “Fuck it, I’m going to start my blog!”. I wanted to be able to express my feelings when no one would listen. It’s hard being a loner because you constantly feel like no one listens or even pays any attention to you.
“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”
As I continue to grow personally, I must trust the process. I know the road will be rough and it will have many bumps along the way. I will do whatever it takes to remain encouraged and continue to follow my dreams.
I encourage all my readers to continue reach your goals and always stay encouraged.
