“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only with what you are expecting to give — which is everything.”
Have a great Monday everyone!
Five years ago, I received a gift of $100+ given to me by my class: A group of amazing women. As any wise woman would said: "Use this gift wisely."
I told them, that I would.
Hence, placing the $100+ in a leather case which I keep in my top desk drawer.
There are moments during those 5 yrs where I was in much "need" of that $100. I would put it in my wallet only to repeat the words..Is this a wise moment to spend this $100+.
Yesterday, was such a moment. It was in my hand, as I stood in a store check out line. I prayed with the understanding that this was a wise moment.
As always it was not....I was able to hold on to it, one more time.
Understand, that it would be spent one day....but with a purpose as it was given to me for a purpose by the wise women.
I am the only problem I will ever have....
And...I am the only solution!
In my down moments in 2016.
I dont crawl under a rock and hide.
I stood tall and...grew in my pain to survive.
Look what I am becoming!
My Joke of the Day:
I called my dad in Trinidad...
"Hummm, what's up?"
"Yeah dad, I figured the time line on where I when wrong in life....and would like a "Do Over!"
" What you smoking boy!"
" Well I wanted to move back home and start my life over as an 11 year old.....so"
Click.....my phone went dead.
I called back
"Boy why you want to kill me this morning ..I too old and I dont have Do Overs!
Started over my conversation......
By the way I do this to my dad all the time. It makes great conversation when he laughs.
Last weekend, my basement flooded and lost everything in that area.
I have been through a fire storm of events this year.
And so have you!
I was not angry for I have been to the mountain tops many times, and, saw amazing things happen to me.
How blessed am I.
The water was contained and cleaned out the area till 3:30am.
I am....exausted but not defeated.
Last Saturday I had the honor to meet President Obama while teaching golf fitness and movement class for a golfing event at Andrews Air Force Base.
It will be carded on my Bucket List next to a kiss from Beyonce...ok, ok now that's pushing it!
The greatest accomplishments comes from when we do what we have never done, and reach it in a way that is uncomfortable to us.
That takes courage.
It causes us to grow in ways we though were impossible.
Awaken you dream my friend.
Everything is possible!
