Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

Never get caught not thinking.

-Uncle Robert

My mom shared that deliscious nugget of wisdom with me this past weekend, and she received it from her oldest brother, my late Uncle Robert.

And funny enough, it made me think, am I making the best decisions to set myself up for success or to position myself more favorably should a situation arise?

For example, I love to shop; however my car has seen better days, so its imperative that I don’t spend my last dime, because I never know when my car will feel like not cooperating.

Consistently thinking ahead, prepares us for what is to come. Sure we dont know exactly what will happen, but with enough experience, we can anticipate risk and govern ourselves accordingly.

Don’t let good times blind you to precaution, always be thinking.

Dussst to Small Stuff

Where one door closes, another is awaiting your arrival to open.

In all sectors of your life, try not to sweat the small stuff. When you present your genuine self and move with the best outcome in mind, all you can do, is all you should.

What is truly meant to be for you, will be. Don’t let one disappointment take precedence to countless possibilities. Shrug it off and move forward with style, some grace and a lil edge to ward off nonsense.

Checking in + Storytime

Hi Readers,

I know it’s been a while since I opened my bright idea mouth and shared the news to expand the flow of HEY GIRL HEY!!! And while I’m still toiling over ideas, I honestly haven’t written down a committed P.O.V. on it…

Truth. Reading it sounds harsh, but it’s still my truth. Up to me to change it. In the meantime I am continuing to be social both off and online….Which leads me to my story.

Someone on my IG yesterday posted a video that still has me like,”what in thee *insert what you like* did I just witness?!?!

I believe myself to be pretty open minded, just because I don’t subscribe to something someone else does, does not mean I don’t love them; however I can be quite prudish😇.

And what I witnessed yesterday is one of those things where I’m like, where do we draw the moral line on social media?

I asked a question via my personal social media some months ago; Morals: The fear of judgement and asked if it were true or false. People gave their answer but no explanation…guess I should have prompted them. *noted*

Then what is the purpose of morals if on one hand what’s appropriate to share to others isn’t the same for the next person who receives it?

When do we begin to reasonably modify our entertainment for the, dare I say, innocence of others?

Because believe it or not, there actually a couple of a lotta things I can do without seeing ever in life.

However, isn’t that the slippery slope of being social? You’re bound to bump into a “was not expecting that at all” moment. May it not be as traumatic as the one I am currently attempting to rid my thoughts of. 😯😕
