The person who never gives up knows that the answer is most likely no. Keyword: likely!
Meaning that there is a 99.99 percent chance of the answer being yes. Keyword: CHANCE!
The person who never gives up hears opposition. Like Ms. Almánzar would say, “I do what they say I can’t”
Meaning that opposition is the fuel to push you to that goal.
The person who never gives up always asks questions.
“What can I do to get a discount on these melons?”
“Um…ma’am? There are no discounts on Melons today”
“May I speak to your manager please?”
The person who never gives up has a picture in mind and would jump through all the hoops and climb up any wall to see it come to fruition.
They don’t settle, they don’t listen to opinions. THEY MOVE.
So you gotta get out the way.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen,
It’s been months since my last post and I’m actually pleased about it. I’ve been too busy living to write. My notebook is empty, my google drive a lot cleaner and my mind… content. I have a new outlook in life and this view allows less desire for blogging.
It was a Sunday like today when I looked at my husband and said “Let’s move to Florida”. He always wanted to move but he patiently waited for me to give the okay. Well I gave the okay and man, I was scared.
4 months in and I don’t see myself ever looking back. Unless of course there is an emergency that I’d have to pack up and leave but other than that, Florida is home. Imagine if I let fear control me. I would have missed out on a lot.
I’m not pretending there wasn’t a struggle. There was struggle and we still see struggle today. It’s just that I’m so thankful for God guiding us and helping us through. For showing His sovereignty in the midst of turmoil.
I have great friends. Great co-workers. I’ve seen so much favor. I’ve witnessed miracles and wonders. More strength came upon me. More growth within me. More Joy in my heart. Sometimes you need to be further from comfort to see more clearly. To feel more often. To stop and absorb God’s goodness. To thrive.
There is purpose when I am and I’m just anxious to see what’s next.
When I look back to the days when I cried everyday. The days of hurt, abuse, betrayal, loneliness and desperation, I realize that there was purpose in it all. I needed the pain to grow. Without the pain, I couldn’t see the promising road ahead of me. I’ll never go back and redo those days. Those days to me are GOLD.
To my mistakes
To my accusers
To my enemies
To anyone who did me wrong.
Thanks to you, My feet are on solid ground.
This trophy is FOR YOU
Take it. 🏆
How many times have people tried to slow me down from progressing?
I have a passion but these voices want me to lose my blessing.
And how many times have I heard a verse against my passions?
It’s their attempt for me to move in their form or fashion.
I’m not them, you, her or him.
I’m me. So don’t try to change this woman within.
It’s MY thought process, MY Goals, MY interest His Soul.
So don’t come at me with words or heavy blows.
It’s MY character, MY confidence, MY artistic nature.
You want to change me well consult my Maker. 🙏🏽
I’m not the best at anything. Jack of some trades, master of none. But there is something about having passion in what you do that gives your work a little boost in comparison with others.
I love to write but my grammar stinks. Punctuation is my enemy. Spelling is like Satan’s plan against my life but spell check is the Blood of Jesus.
Imagine if i compared my writing with the smarty-est smarty pants of the writing world. Girl, I’ll quit right now. But MY perspective is the game changer. My style is like ice cream and Edgar Allen Poe’s style is like Filet mignon. BOTH FOODS ARE AWESOME depending on what you’re craving.
Keep the passion in what you do without comparing yourself to anyone else. You are the only you in this world.
Unless your passion is in math cuz girl, 2+2 will always be 4 and no matter how much passion you got, numbers don’t change. Sorry math ppl.
I can tell when someone is pretending to be kind to me.
I can tell when someone is bragging about their success but disguises it with humility.
I can tell when someone is making an effort to prove that they’re better than me.
I can tell
So i let them speak
I play along
I act naive
Because the more they do it, the sillier they look and that’s amusing to me.
If it seems as life isn’t on your side
And all you can do is sob
Put the enemy beneath your feet
Cuz you’re doing a great job
It seems like life isn’t in your favor
Your name may be subject to their chatter.
All great people are subject to critics
Cuz Livi, you matter!
Life SEEMS to be mean
Life SEEMS to be an enemy
But let’s look through another perspective
Because life was a friend to me
It gave me strength and purpose and will.
It was mean at times but it wasn’t until –
I surpassed all the trials that came to me.
Cuz Life opens your eyes to what you’re supposed to see.
You reject Jesus
Because you consider yourselves unworthy of
Ever felt a whole lot of pressure because of someone’s high expectation of you? I know I have but one thing that settles my anxiety is knowing that as long as I do MY best, disappointing those who are watching me has no effect on my own view of myself.
We can’t take responsibility of how someone chooses to look up to you or look down at you. We all wake up and face a new day with a new attitude and a new outlook in life that effects the way we view others and how others view us. In this emotionally inconsistent world, we have to prepare to impress someone or let someone down. And not be too boastful or too ashamed.
Don’t fret over anyone’s view of you. Don’t beat yourself over the head when you’ve disappointed someone because in the end, you can’t please the world. You see how pleasing God first comes to play? I’m not saying you have to have it right all the time, I’m saying that on your day to day decisions, acknowledge God. For every action, take a moment and ask God for guidance. Do YOUR best, and God will handle the rest. Cliche i know. Lol
That is all for bus chronicles episode 1. Have a great day!
