Can People F*ck Up Your Journey?

First things first,  yes, I cussed in my title…it’s ok.  Now,  I’ve been going back and forth about this topic for a while,  but mostly through random thoughts in my head.

So many of us are on a profound journey that we want the world to take notice of,  but have you ever thought about the world not wanting what’s best for you?

I mean,  let’s be real,  do you honestly believe that all of your friends are happy for you?  I’ll be the one to burst your bubble; they aren’t!  That’s because not everyone is your friend.  Not everyone is in a healthy place where they can be happy for others.  That place can be a breeding ground for envy and jealousy, so we all have to be careful.  We can also have individuals around us that just aren’t good people.  They only care about their journey and their life; in other words,  selfish.

People can genuinely f*ck up your journey!  Friends,  coworkers,  exes, boyfriends,  girlfriends,  family… all opportunities to derail your path.  One bit of advice I can offer,  from experience of course,  when people walk out of your life,  allow them.  You don’t need them.  If you give life to any negativity,  you’ve opened the door to unnecessary drama and distractions.

Here’s what YOU can do in the midst of dealing with others… continue to love,  shine light,  stay focused.  The universe will work everything else out,  trust me.

Special Post for a Woman Shaping Her Destiny…

We all go through changes in life…

We see friends come, friends go…we go through ups and we go through downs…we cry…we laugh…we have crazy moments…we experience it all!

As crazy at it gets, some people can take a leap of faith so great, that you can’t help but appreciate and look up in amazement.  I met a special gal about 12 years ago while in college.  From the beginning, she had an outgoing spirit and one hell of a side eye (lol)!  We had moments of distance, where months would go by with no contact, but then that one girl’s night out, every once in a while, brought us back together.  As we get older, I’ve grown to appreciate her honesty and her support.  When I think about it and look back at old pics, I realize that she has really been there for a lot.  My lovely and dear friend, Jelonda, will be embarking on a journey that will be life changing.

She has decided to move to Thailand for six months, working on her inner and outer self, taking life as it comes.  Who knows where this leap of faith will lead her, but one thing is for sure, I have an immeasurable amount of respect for her.

To my girl:

Know that we are all watching you and praying for your safe travels.  We love you and want nothing but the best for this new path that you are walking down.  You are an inspiration to everyone around you and even those watching from afar.  Continue to follow your heart and your dreams…I am SO SO proud of you and I know that God will be guiding your every move, so behave and live it up as if no one is watching lol.  Here are some snapshots of great times, so whenever you get homesick just take a peak at the memories!
