Do you ever have a moment where you feel like you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be?
I’m not talking about that client meeting or that doctor’s appointment. I’m referencing that jolt in your brain and heart where you feel banded, packaged, and ready for shipment.
You see, my upbringing was decent but lacking in many factors. Sure, I had parents that loved me and tried very hard to be suitable.
But, there were a few misfires……
My Mom constantly met multiple men that were “The One” and would disappear for a few weeks and leave myself and younger brother to fend for ourselves. I think the first time I was ten years old and my brother seven. Way too damn young to be left alone for days or weeks. My Mom and Dad were divorced and he had a lot of important things going on in his life like work, guns, and women.
They carried medical and dental insurance on themselves but dropped mine when I turned fifteen. I had a part time job so that meant I could pay for my lunches at school, dental cleaning, doctor’s appointments, etc. in their eyes.
My Dad tried to break me a few times. What I mean by that is compare me to my Mom and tell me things like “You’re just like your Mom, a whore, you’re never going to make it or be anything more.” The next day he would tell me he loved me and how proud he was of me. I swear to this day he had split personalities or something. Those words…..you never forget them.
I read a quote today, “Throw me to the wolves and I’ll come back leading the pack.” When I read this I had that moment of clarity. Sometimes we go through some heartbreaking junctures in life. Because of the misfires in my life it didn’t break me. It made me. I’m a natural born hustler. People tend to follow my direction. When I say hustler I mean “Bitches get shit done.” My work ethic is solid and whatever goals I set for myself, I make it happen. I’m in control of my dreams, aspirations, and anything I fucking want. All of us were born to make an impact. So, go out and get your dreams people! Don’t let anyone break you. Remember, you’re unbreakable just like me.
