Rome was not built in a day and neither were you

Life is a journey and as we go through it we learn new things every now and then. We all have different races to run, we all have different abilities and skills. We are all unique in every way and  we are all beautiful. Therefore, we have no reason to compare ourselves to someone at the finish line when we are just signing up for the race. NO!!! this is completely unacceptable.

I am in a place right now that I do not want to be, I feel lost majority of the time and I am not where I want to be. I have been denied some positions. But I will keep pushing till I get what I want, it is though but it would be worth it in the end. This is the secret to staying happy during times like this, stop comparing your present situation to your friend who got the job, or your friend who just got a boyfriend. stop COMPARISON. Another way is to trust the journey, like I mentioned earlier we all run different races, I may have just started mine and you're in the final lap. But the important thing is that we are all going along and empowering each other.

We all have dreams and we should go for them, knowing that the journey is not a smooth one. There would be ups and downs, failures and successes but in the end we would have achieved it all. One thing I find shocking is that, too many people want to get to the top so quick without knowing how to climb a ladder. Majority of the people we look up to also had their own challenges but they made it work and SO CAN YOU!!. Do not partake in activities that are beneath your standards just so you can be known or noticed by other people.

YOU ARE STRONG! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! YOU ARE UNIQUE! YOU ARE SMART!

I met an old black lady yesterday, she was talking about how proud she was of some of the black girls in the society and one quote she shared that I would never forget is "You do not have to shake your butt to be a QUEEN".
