Just reflecting on the year and how far I’ve come. God is Amazing.
A year ago today, I was in intensive care. I spent 10 days in a hospital bed, in what was the worst pain of my life. When you’re sick, you’re forced to slow down and look at life clearly. I didn’t know what was wrong, but I knew I wasn’t ready to die. The doctors had no answers for me. So my wife and I prayed. I called Pastor Powe and he came and prayed with me. My friends and family came and prayed with me. My online family prayed and called, and forced me to fight. And I endured. I endured pain, and saline drips and drugs I can’t pronounce, and main lines into my body, and medicine alarms, and fear of the unknown. I was angry. I was hurting. I was scared.
So I continued to pray. And I remembered my boy Dylan, and our day on the beach. No matter how bad I feel, he makes life better. And I remembered riding my bike along the coast, with the wind hitting my face… The one time where I truly feel free is on ground.
As I felt better, I had a long talk with God about my goals, dreams and ambitions. I promised God that if he chose to spare me, I would not waste my life. I would live life to the fullest, and make tons of memories along the way. I made plans.
As I sit here a year later, I’m thriving. I’m realizing goals that only started as an idea. I am proud to have kept my promise to God, living life more abundantly.
Feels like I’ve been so busy lately… I post a lot on social media and tend to forget about my own site. I’ve got to do better posting content on the space I own. Life’s been really good lately, can’t complain at all. Tons of blessings coming my way. Trying not to get overwhelmed.
Progressing toward my goals everyday. Fitness, financial, family… These are my priorities. 40 is coming up fast. I used to be afraid of that number, but I’m learning to embrace it. Still, I’ve got a lot to do before it gets here… Not gonna stress it, just gonna ride it out.
I’ve been busy. Got sick, got well. Found my passion again, living my dreams. Back on ground, life is good. Checkout blackgirlsride.com to keep up.
I had an awesome time last night spinning for my Western Region Sorors! It’s great to see so many beautiful and successful women! I had the privilege to meet Madame Grand Basilus! I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful organization…
Finished. 4 mile morning run. Now I’m gonna go lift. The day is off to an amazing start. Enjoying my endorphins. #occupythegym #consistency #faith #focus #fitness
Got my morning run in to the gym, plus insanity Plyo Cardio. My foot was feeling weird, with a sharp pain, but it went away. Slight knee pain. I also forgot to take my vitamin, so my energy was low. But, I got it done.
Did my first club gig in a couple of years, and I’ve noticed a few things…
– the club’s equipment sucks. I had the worst mixer I’ve ever had.
– I need a serato controller. They’re cheap and can replace faulty shit. Plus, they’re light.
– I DJ better after 2 drinks. I think it takes the edge and anxiety off.
– even with technology, club promotion is all about relationships and personal contact. Folks will give u a FB rsvp like it’s breathing. Doesn’t mean they’re coming. Just means they saw the invite. Gotta grind and network.
– 90’s and 2000’s club bangers still work. The kids want to hear classic heaters mixed with current cuts.
– gotta stay consistent.
