Keep It Positive

“One should not criticize another unless they tend to their own garden.” #StuffRareSays

and even then… One does not have the power to tell you  that your career goals, what you strive for, or what your excited about is stupid and not worth it without an explanation as to why their opinions are so much more important than yours. ESPECCIALLY when they’ve interrupted you to lecture you on  before knowing any details.


I had intended to post the next installment to my Rewind series, but I’m lacking creativity right now. Can’t seem to escape the negative vibes.

BLAH!

Either way, I’ve spent too much time piecing it all together, and for now, I’m still working on how to present it. Yeah! it’s that close to my heart. Meh!

Which means I somehow gotta let y’all in. 

so, I guess um …..

Instead, I will talk about some current tidbits.


I spend a lot of time and energy in empowering others. It’s kinda my thing. During my candidacy experience, my Facebook page blew up. Tons of new friends, and acquaintances. Yikes! After dad had passed away I deleted my page and started a new, in order to HIDE from the world, and I only added close friends, and family.

It’s been four years. I’ve posted lot’s of positive quotes, and I’m still posting positive quotes. Lately, I’ve had an abundance of negative comments stringing through my feeds BECAUSE of my positivity.

semantics

Of all the things to start an online argument over. Flipping semantics.
Well… Here’s the thing. IT DOESN’T FLIPPING MATTER WHO THE FLIP I’M QUOTING, OR WHAT WORDS, OR TERMS I’M USING THE MESSAGE IS STILL THERE LOUD AND CLEAR!!!!! 

Either wake up enough to hear it or take your negativity back to your super villain cave. Not everyone want’s to hear how this word , or that word is why your empowerment shouldnt matter.  Get it together.

That is not how the world works. We don’t watch milk spill and stand over it while it’s spilling criticizing how the stream is going the wrong way. WE CLEAN IT UP BEFORE IT GETS WORSE!!

Vent over…

It doesn’t bother me because I know to well that if you ain’t got no haters you ain’t popping, but doooode! has the world become so broken and jaded that we are finding the negative in everything we look at???

You see, that’s the problem… That’s how the darkness wins. If you cannot see the hope/light in things, you’ve already let the darkness in.

NO! I’m not referring to any of YOU. I mean, if you didn’t feel the hope that pulses in the world you wouldn’t be tuned into me. The question still remains…. How do we work together to breed more hope? 

Stereotypes:  Through my candidacy people made remarks about my qualifications based on my looks, size and what they thought they knew about me.. They also made assumptions about my capabilities because of these physical features. Go figure. Something I’ve learned over the years is, you won’t influence the small-minded.

so… 

Message for my readers:  Don’t make your choices based on the validation of others. No one knows what you are, where you’ve been, where you’re going, or how succesful you’ll be, unless you let them in. Be you. Be true. Follow YOUR dream, and follow through.

    Absolutely! Some people don’t like people who are strong and independent. They only feel good when they are finding fault with someone. I have several mottoes I have lived many life by, and this is one of them, “If you don’t like what I’m doing, don’t watch me do it!” I don’t give a crap what anyone else thinks about what I’m doing. I live my life for me.

    Wow. Tell us how you really feel! Teehee. No, I sooo feel ya’, Darlin’. You are right and sound in your critique. I think we all have the occassional “Stop the World, I Wanna Get Off” days. And, you’re right, we shouldn’t make choices based on the validation of others. As the late, great Oscar Wilde once said, “If we’re always guided by other people’s thoughts, what’s the point in having our own?” xox
