This past week I experienced about 972 emotions pertaining to the recent debacle. I went from scared to mad to perplexed to negative to sad to indifferent then back to mad. While experiencing all of my emotions, I engaged in conversations with family members and friends to dissect the recent events. After all of the conversations and my different emotions, I came to a conclusion. It's time get our s@$% together.
Life is hard. It has been hard and will continue to be hard. We need to stop looking for a break because we've never had one and possibly will never get one. We've been fighting to survive since the year of 1619, and the fight will not stop in 2017. We are either going to complain about how we were, are, and will be treated, wait for God to drop something out of the sky, or pray and then jump in the fight by educating ourselves and our children more, loving ourselves more, eating healthier, exercising, handling our finances better, and creating opportunities for our successors. We can continue to depend on them to help us...or help ourselves. I choose to help myself.
