Be Careful of the friendly users in your life

Every day is just like the day before..A new adventure
Do more than survive, live. Take that risk, confess your love, take a chance, be vulnerable. Life can sometimes be scary, but what is the worst that can happen, you die? It is a chance that I am willing to take. Each day is what you make it out to be. There is no such day as a bad day or a good day. It is the same 24 hours. The only change is you. Yesterday may have taught you a lesson. But the days are generally the same. You have the power over the day. Refuse to start your day by reading newspapers that sensationalize bad news. Reading this does nothing for your soul. Same goes for watching a news broadcast before going to bed. There is no publicizing of good news.You must decide what your mind consumes and refuse to feed yourself poison. Seize the day, your day.

People will not always treat you as good as you treat them

A word of advice for young professionals, have a separate phone for business customers and friends. This will help you separate the two. It is also a good practice for when you expand the business, you can delegate tasks and have an assistant to answer the phone. I used my personal phone to call my business phone because it misplaced at home. On my personal phone , the number was saved as “Business Phone”, I searched the contact and dialed. I walked around the house to listen for the ringtone. Surprisingly, the phone was not far, however,  I was surprised that when I saw the missed call, the number was saved as “Ms. Sydney”.
I began wondering how my friends , colleagues and clients saved my numbers. I wondered what name I would see if I dialed my phone number on my friends’ phone. I came to the realization that people do not consider you the same way that you consider them.Regardless of how well you treat them, people with treat you the way that they value you. I no longer inconvenience myself to make someone comfortable, it is not worth it. When you appear too helpful, people take advantage of you.

You are the author of your destination

Set your goal and pursue it. It is your life after all. If you do not like something, change it. We have limited time on earth and this time should not be used to complain. It should be used to live your best life. I looked at the rain , the droplets descended upon the blades of grass. I inhaled freedom and nature kissed me. I wanted to sing and dance in the rain.
I remembered the first time that my grandmother encouraged my siblings and I to play in the rain. We made paper boats and placed them in streams of water and cheered as they followed the course of the water. I remembered innocence and childhood well. I also remembered that I dreamed about doing the things that I do today. I smile and remember that there is still much for me to do. I also remember my days on the plantation and I vow to never work harder on the job than I do on myself.
I cannot blame anyone else for my position in life, the good and the bad are the outcome of my choices. I created my own turmoil and paradise with the changes that I made. I am grateful for the trials and tribulations that made me into the woman that I am today.
