The best compliment I've ever received..

The best compliment I've ever received..




It's funny..

Things always have a way of working out, and God always sends signs when you need them..

Not that you should ask for them. Don't worry if you do, I've done that before too. I just learned why I shouldn't the other day, but that's a blog all by itself

Moving on..

We all know God uses people, I think he used someone to send me a message the other day. I wrote a blog about it, wanna read it? Here it goes...

Someone text me "Out of the blue" ( whatever that means) and said 

"You're a very special person" 

If you know me, you know I ask lots of questions about EVERYTHING. I like for communication to be clear, and I want to be on the same page with you if we're conversing. This occasion was no different. I ask why said person thought this way. She says "the way you live."

I'm confused at this point.

At the time, I was overcoming challenges and actually having a pretty rough day. I asked her to elaborate on her comment and she said "You live the way you want to and make your own rules."

While that's a simple sentence, I got so much from it. I thanked her for her compliment and couldn't shake the thought of what she implying. Those few simple text messages meant more to me than she'll ever know. Interestingly enough, after hours of pondering, I believe I figured out what she was doing. In my slight arrogance, my first thought was "Does she want to jump my bones?" My next thought was, " Doesn't everyone do that?" Then it hit me, everyone doesn't. She was admiring my courage. My courage to set myself apart, ignore the status quo, to observe the masses and do the opposite. Thing is, I forgot all about it. I'm not sure if it was her intention, or a little encouragement from above, however this short conversation helped me remember one of my greatest strengths. To date, this is the best compliment I've ever received. 

In conclusion, be courageous. Live the way you want to live. Do, be, and have anything that you want, because you can. Make your own rules, life is more fun that way. I'm not saying it'll always be fun, but it'll sure be worth it. You're awesome. 

Hop in the driver's seat of your life.

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!
