Prep for your future relationship!

I was talking to one of my married friends who’s always giving me advice in order to prep me for that one day that I MAY/POSSIBLY get married. He said one of the realest statements I’ve heard in a while. He said “The person you are now is the person you will be when you end up in a relationship!” Man! That makes perfect sense! We all know people can change but we also know that change takes time. Make sure you take a hard look at yourself before searching for “the one”….and make sure you even look at “the one” before awarding them that position in your life. I’m not talking about being perfect but more so if you can be a better communicator, be willing to compromise, if you’re selfish or not, if you have issues committing, being a good listener…you know the basic relationship ingredients people always talk about. I’m nowhere near an expert when it comes to relationships but 90% of my friends are married and constantly giving me advice like this and it’s working for them.

Before a person becomes a doctor there are certain things they have to learn, steps they have to take and experiences they have to encounter before they are ready and prepared to be doctors. It’s the same thing for us singles. We must go through certain situations and learn from them, we have to take time to take an honest look at ourselves and make changes that help us become better suited for that relationship we want to have. We have to prepare! Just like you would prepare for a job interview or a presentation, prepare yourself for the marriage that you want….if that’s what you’re looking for of course.

A spoken word a did a while back encouraging people to continue pursing your dreams and goals despite your failures and people’s negative opinion about you.

Choose “To Fail” or “To Regret”

I was doing some thinking last night, pondering about regret and the types of regrets that older people sometimes end up with. If you ever take the time to talk to someone 30 – 40 years older than you are and living with regret you’ll notice that all of their regrets are usually intangible. They always wish they would’ve tried harder, took something or someone more seriously, practiced more, traveled more frequently, fell in love, took more risk etc.

I think sometimes my generation, and I’m guilty of this too, tends to make a lot of decisions based on tangible rewards. Getting degrees in fields we aren’t passionate about, taking jobs for the best paycheck possible, establishing relationships based on physical features, spending less time doing what we love to do in order to do something we “sort of enjoy”, not taking enough risk in order to be safe. Are we just setting ourselves up for a life full of regret(s)?  Are we missing out by chasing the wrong things, the wrong people, and the wrong goals? Are we adding to the list of regrets that we may already have? Well it’s not too late to do something about it.

We have to push past the fear of stepping out of our comfort zones and beyond our safety nets. Follow that dream that you’re passionate about, travel to that place you’ve always wanted to go, talk to the crush you’re always too nervous to approach, start that business idea you’ve had for years, start checking off your bucket list. The worse that can happen is that you fail.

I’m currently reading “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. In the book he states “Winners are not afraid of losing, but losers are. Failure is part of the process of achieving success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” MIND BLOWING!!! We must fail in order to succeed in order to end up with little to no regret. Don’t be afraid to fail and don’t end up with a pile of regrets at the end of your life!

The Worst Commute Ever!

Just had the worst commute ever! First of all it started raining like God decided to flood the earth again. Thought y’all might have angered him with all the twerk videos and fight compilations some of you post on social media. I got completely soaked. There’s water in my shoes right now!! Let me mention that I had the world’s worst umbrella. It looks like I made it myself. It has bullet holes in it and pieces of metal hanging from the top of it that were tearing my head/hair up. I finally get to the slug line and then it happens, one of the metal pieces decides to cut my finger on my strong hand. I literally threw my umbrella in this guys car and dove in like I just committed a crime and he was driving the getaway car. His face was priceless. Lol So I’m in this guys car trying to figure how to stop the bleeding because I was cut worse than I thought and didn’t want to bleed on his seats. Found some old paper in my backpack and wrapped my finger up the way I think McGuyver would’ve done it. Now I’m wet, wounded, and officially hate my life. Mother Nature wins Monday!

The Law of Conservation of Energy

In high school I loved science; it was definitely my favorite subjects after gym and lunch. One thing I remember from my physics class is the “Law of Conservation of Energy” which states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can only transform from one state to another. It got me thinking about how we give certain people so much of ourselves sometimes and never get the same from them in return. We transfer this energy over to relationships, jobs, helping those in need, etc. and never get the opportunity to collect the same type of energy in return. We do this for the wrong people and for the wrong reasons so much that when the right people and right reasons come along we having nothing left to give.  By that time we’ve been let down, betrayed and hurt so much and don’t realize that so much negative energy has been transferred over to us. It’s why people sometimes become bitter and selfish; they have no positive energy left to give and can’t just create new energy.

We often exchange good energy for bad energy then end up waiting for someone or something to give us some of that same positive energy we gave so freely in the past. It’s simple science. Make sure the people and situations in your life are worth giving your energy to and that you’re getting something similar in return. If you’re always giving positive energy yet never receiving the same, it may be time to make some changes in your life. Too often we allow negative energy to be given to us we we’re worth so much more than that. Learn to be strong enough and wise enough to cut the negative out of your life. Remember energy can’t be created or destroyed; it can only transfer from one state to another.
