Another Day another...

Today was the day of enlightenment. The people who I thought were there for me are walking away. That feeling of abandonment is starting to set in, but I will not surcome to the feelings. I feel like a gladiator walking back to the holding cell after battle. “Since the last obstacle did not kill you, you have another day to prepare for the next battle.” Therefore, instead of feeling anger, animosity, or ill feelings, I renewed my marriage to the grind. Put that band back on my finger and got to work. On most days, I would work for 5 hours and spend the rest of the day meditating on positivity and success. For 25 years of my life, I was a pessimist...and for the last 3 years of my life, I have fought against that feeling. I found the only way to beat bad habits is to develop good ones. I am cultivating my newest one and I had my first ray of sunshine in a while. So as I end my day, I focus on the fact “I am fortunate enough to have my faith; it’s the hope that keeps me striving when I was exhausted miles back. “

Opportunity + Preparation = SUCCESS

I've been married to the grind for a while now and we have a pretty good relationship! As long as I'm doing my part my other half takes care of the rest. :-) Congrats!
