You’ve always got a choice…

Here I am again, at this junction in my life where I stand still and scrutinize the world around me. The world keeps moving, and sometimes it is hard to move with it. It’s exhausting to keep up. But when you do things at your own pace, sometimes it’s almost as though the world is leaving you behind.

Whether it be the world as a whole, the people that live in my own personal world, or my mind being the center of my own universe, nothing ever coincides. One good day can equal a week of trecherous demands..but somehow, i’ve risen above it all…and here I am! Once again, exhausted!

I don’t think I’ve ever been the type (in my adult life) to ask for more than what I could give. I’ve gone through my older notes, and I’ve come to realize that WOW, what nearly 3 years of experiences can do to a person. I’ve grown! I’ve matured! I’ve developed into what seems to be…MY MOTHER! lol.

But I look at her and KNOW that I’ve got a great woman to look up to as a mentor, an idol and most importantly a friend! She is everything I aspire to be as a woman, a mother and a wife. She’s always given her all to me and our family, even if that took the very last of her strength for the day. She’s never neglected to show us that her family was her #1 priority. She was and is, and always will be the glue that holds this family together, and the root of my strength. So Yes, I am proud to say that I am my mother’s daughter.

So speaking of prioritizing…

What do you spend your time on? What do you believe is worth letting into your life, and investing your time in, knowing that you’ll never get it back. I’ve had a great deal of conversations with close friends and family regarding this issue. When do we know when to just let things go? When do we draw the line? When does it become time to filter out the bad, and throw away the junk?

Through experience, I’ve come to terms with who I am as a person. I have friends that I know will be with me for the rest of my life, they’re dependable, trustworthy, honest loyal people…they genuinely are. They’re there through the good times, but they’re also there when things look like they’re going downhill. True friends right? So why would i waste my time on people that offer me NOTHING? The ones who show face when you wanna party, but when you’re feeling down and out, they don’t even have the courtesy to offer you true honest moral support? Pft, talk about a waste of time!

Anyways, to end this off. I’ve chosen the title as “spring cleaning”.
Rid yourselves of the junk in your life, filter out the useless and the negative, and start fresh =)

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…

YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE COMPANY YOU KEEP. So what you do with your own time, and with whom you decide to invest your time on, is a clear indication of who you are as a person. Your life, your decisions, your outcome!  So make the right choice!
