I was told some time ago by someone that happiness is a choice and it is. But unfortunately I have heard and even witnessed so many women especially African American allow things and people to cause them unhappiness.
I've had some time to think about my wants, desires, ambitions and dreams. I also had some time to think about relationships (present and past). I found that I need to not deal with anything and/or anybody whom does not mean me any good, even my own family. It's hard because I am pretty much facing the world alone and it is scary. Sometimes I feel like I am on an island by myself. But at least on this island I have the One that is important and He is God.
Life is too short and I refuse to accept anything mediocre and I am not spend time being unhappy. It is a shame that there are so many people whom take delight in others' misery and love to see people down and I refuse to give my enemies any amunitiion. From this day forward, I make a vow to put me first for a change and to continue to increase in success. Besides, it's hard to keep a good Black woman down. How you like me now?
P.S. This post is not directed towards anyone here. lol. I just wanted to clarify that upfront.
