Today is a day of reflection. A day to stare into the past directly into the eyes of your mistakes & be happy that you have overcome them as they were your life lessons. We learn from them by putting our best foot forward & counting our steps one at a time to ensure we do not repeat anything that may have rendered us helpless. Be proud of your shortcomings, because without them you’d have no sense of self elevation….. nor would you be able to help anyone else avoid those same hardships. Understand that there will always be another chance tomorrow, we just have to make it through the day. Today is important because it is right now ! We are here, this is real. Look around you & understand this is not forever. Take advantage of what’s in front of you & help others realize their greatness along the way. It’s not too late for anyone who can read this…… get a grip on life & put the pressure on failure so that it fades away in the process of you achieving your dreams. There’s a girl somewhere throwing her cap in the air on graduation day…. I believe in you. There’s a guy who’s walking around filling out job applications… I believe in you. A single mother acting as both parents, who’s children’s father is non-existent in her babies life… I believe in you…. & there our children all over the earth with the BIGGEST dreams imaginable… I believe in you. I want to give jewels to our babies everyday so they can do all the amazing things they see us doing & transcend our mission as they are the future & should be given excess amounts of love daily, which will help them to overachieve when they are faced with obstacles we weren’t quite able to overcome. We were all children once…. close your eyes, dig deep down & find the child in you that couldn’t wait to grow up & be great !!! Then open your eyes & realize that you are. Yea, you really are. Now push yourself today & give others the love we all deserve along your way. “The Highest Human Act Is To Inspire” #LongLiveKingNip #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway
