“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”
Fulton J. Sheen

Hello everyone,

Today is the start of a new week. As usual, there are new things I want to focus on, and new ways I want to grow. I went to church today and received the perfect motivation to start my week. The message was about John the Baptist and the life he lived before he was killed. I will discuss my goals for this week, but before that I will give you all a recap of last week:

This week I went to the gym, hung out with friends and I went to the club. Going to the club helped me realize that I am over it. I had fun being around my girls, but the environment just annoyed me. I feel like I am too old to be around all the thirst and rudeness. Being in bars are completely different from clubs and I feel like I prefer a more chill environment. Getting bumped out the way when people are dancing and getting alcoholic beverages poured on me just isn’t a situation I want to deal with anymore.

In addition, I did not have much progress with my goals, I am not going to lie. I have not been selfish like I expressed I wanted to be and I still try to force things instead of being patient. Patience is something I have always struggled with. It’s so hard to not worry about certain goals that I have. I want everything (Stability, Happiness, Money)now and it is driving me crazy. This is nothing new, but this week my impatience was worst than ever. Pray that I find the much needed ability to let go and let God.

This week my focus will be my communication skills. I realize that sometimes I am extremely disrespectful when I say things. As people say, it is not what you say its how you say it. I also want to work on my honesty, because I notice that I have been lying lately to avoid hurting people’s feelings.  I hate upsetting people and I also hate lying so I need to find a balance where I can tell the truth, but not be rude about it.

Being more selfish is still a focus. My nails need to be redone, there’s a couple movies I want to see and  I also want to buy that book The Wait  by Megan Good and her husband. As lame as I have been thinking it is, I want to read it. It will probably be a good book and offer me some insight. These tasks are my priority this week! Doing things I want to do for me.

On a random note, this entire month a lot of people have randomly complimented my singing voice. I have ALWAYS wanted to sing, but I didn’t feel confident enough. Well now I will attempt to create covers of songs I like. This will be interesting, but I want to see what feedback I get. I am no Beyonce’, but I think I can hold a note haha. Stay tuned!
