“Don’t Forget where you came from” I am begging you to forget!

Standard

To be honest the phrase could not be more wrong!

For a long time I have tried not to forget where I came from and the past memories, events, actions and emptiness always followed me. I stepped away from my past …… king

and my future got much closer, much quickly.  I decided to reinvent who I was and fix what I consider old shortcoming that defined what I could not do.  I have more time, energy and emotion for the current situations of my life and the relief from grief has left me feeling complete! I doubled my focus, tripled my income and in 2 years, I got married, had a child, and all because I left my past behind.

So I dare you to forget where you came from, and clear your mind long enough to define where your going, then when you get there don’t drown in the details of the path and self conviction and enjoy your accomplishments.

anyone that knows me, knows I have been working hard on my future to ensure that my new small family can have the kind of life I wish I could have had growing up. nobody likes having to struggle. I have struggled; no running water, no electricity, homeless shelters sleeping in my car, abandoned houses, on porches, you can only imagine the trials and tribulations I was facing, and I have to say I would do it all again…

I wasn’t a drug user, I wasn’t hard to cohabitate with… I just kept my dreams so vivid in my mind that success wasn’t hard to find. I tried to keep some people and their lifestyles at a distance to create my own path and hammer out the mistakes in my life.

My care-free attitude changed meeting Tyesha, after having my wife move-in with me (we were only dating at the time). I had met this beautiful woman with no one to care for her like she would need. Her issues and shortcomings are what made me inspired and hopeful that we could fill each other’s gaps in support.

in return she pushed me, questioned me, loved me, stood by me through some things that she had never been through.(though homeless and no electricity wasn’t a big issue to me. I had experienced worse in my opinion.)

I have really refined my craft with system administration and I now work for Hewlett Packard and we are moving in less than 30 days to the suburban parts of Michigan. Building on a fresh slate some would call it “rags to riches” I like to call it “rags to towels” because towels complete the concept of the cleaning up process and only a towel can dry behind the ears…. so I guess you can say with all that I and her have been through we are no longer wet behind the ears…. haha

Wrestlemania

Well hopefully everyone understands I grew up on it before judging the kid in me lol. I dreamed last night I did an interview with Kevin Nash about redefining his image and possible changing the name of his finishing moves. We had already built suspense for the main event at wrestling “Wrestlemania”! I couldn’t get him to focus on his career choices and just wanted to go over hulk Hogan’s house for some “Turducken” lol my dreams really tickle me. I hope my son has a vivid imagination so that I can enjoy the stories and possibly swap stories. But sadly my son can’t talk yet so me and some buddies are going to a local bar to watch the main event. See you hulkamaniacs later!

Tax dollars at work (help)

Standard

It isn’t as good as it sounds sadly. My tax refund should have went to my savings account. But unfortunately I spent alot on stuff that I been holding on to for close to 10 years. Art van and my small place don’t fit, by technology addiction doesn’t help and my wife is like a deer in headlights when it comes to just about anything purchasable. I am tired and wish taxes was a secret lol but that’s my tax dollars at work…..on my nerves lol happy shopping (somebody stop me or at least her!)

The children don’t want to be…

Standard

I have noticed a shift in the direction of positive progress.
I have heard some ridiculous things in my lifetime, but this takes the cake.

I was offering a book to a young adult called “the odyssey”
They stated, “I don’t want that!” Jokingly I asked “Why not?!”, could they not read?!

Her response was, ” I don’t find it interesting.”

Me: how do you know it’s not?

Her: I would of heard about it.

Me: your going to have a hard time in life if you only find things interesting only if you have heard about them from a specific source, because your hearing about this book from me and I say its good and haven’t told a hint of what it is about!

Am I wrong for being disappointed in the lack of interest?

A future to Consider.

Standard

I have noticed a rise of interest in political matters in my peers. their call for concern has reached my ears.

I refuse to let so much Clutter destroy the social progress that technology has made for us  humans. I am going to make it my business to be more aware of what is going on. rub shoulders with the big wigs in so many words build a network to restore glory to Detroit, MI. I am tired of what people say and do and them walk away from.
