Well look who it is!! Did you miss me? After my last post about Vegas, I needed to take a minute to kind of deal with myself., my emotions. I still hadn’t completely come to grips with the loss of my friend Glenn (The Most Electrifying man post), and I really needed time to allow myself to grieve.
During that period though, I traveled to the beautiful Caribbean. The Bahama islands to be exact. You guys know I like to travel right? It’s what I do. I am a travel agent after all lol. We went to celebrate my girlfriend’s mother’s 50th birthday. I’m not sure that’s grammatically correct, but I’m sure one of the grammar police will pull up any minute if it isn’t lol.
The trip was amazing. We traveled aboard the Enchantment of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean Oasis Class Ship, and as always, RC delivered on the promise that this isn’t a cruise, it’s an adventure. For me though, in the midst all of the joy of celebration, the beauty of the islands, and the peace of the ocean itself, I just wasn’t at peace. There were many things in my lyfe, personal and professional that were starting to unravel, or simply just fall apart. I was being forced to face some things that I was in denial about. Trying to hold on to somethings that was being forced to let go. Lyfe was not enjoyable.
See, the toughest thing about being the strongest person that all of your friends know, is that they rarely believe that someone of such strength ever needs someone to be strong for them. It’s almost taken for granted that you will always be ok. Now I know I’ve proven to be almost bullet proof…maybe a little bullet resistant is a better term lol, but there are moments where I’m just HUMAN, and this was one of those, but they say that when you’re down to nothing, just know that God is up to something.
A local magazine named “Vital Magazine” reached out to me and let me know that they wanted to have me in the magazine as a honoree for Entrepreneur of the Month for their October issue. Someone, unbeknownst to me, nominated me for my hard work, dedication, and my desire to use my travel business to help empower people to change their lives, AND their finances. This was a reminder to me that you must keep pushing. Even when you feel things are not going the way you want them, when you feel that no one is believing in or supporting your dreams. You have to keep pushing, because someone you may not even know is pulling for your success. Lyfe will be tough at times, but you MUST be tougher. You must endure. You simply being YOU, is giving someone else who’s struggling with lyfe’s difficulties, HOPE. It’s a reminder that although lyfe, in the moment, is not, and has not been the greatest as of late, I’m still going to live my greatest lyfe. You should too. It’s not to late. Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.
