Up early on a Sunday morning with a made up mind. A mind to push past my limits of slumber in the hope's of mastering the morning. Trying my best to cast comfort to the side and embrace the grind. The grind to be better, do better, and to obtain more. Not for myself but for my family. It's been a battle so far in 2019 Royalself fam not going to lie. Sometimes I feel like I'm not getting anywhere. Sometimes I feel like I slave away just to hold on to a piece of the pie instead of enjoying the taste of a whole one. I get tired. I get weary. Then I look upon the faces of the ones I love. Knowing that they need me to keep going. Knowing that if I waver that my family might fail. That the little peace that they have will soon not be enough. So I pray 🙏🏾. I pray for strength and guidance from the most high. To keep me and my mind strong so that I won't falter to these thoughts. Thoughts about my father...and how he had no time to spare. All he knew was to work and provide. While I admire all he has ever done for me when I was a child, I sympathize with his frustration of wanting to be free. Thoughts about my ancestors that have laid down their lives in the hope's of one day we might have a chance to just be all that we can be. I realize I'm living their dreams. So I can't complain. I won't complain. I must endure this transition for not only myself but for my family and those who've have died to make all this happen. I'm up...and I won't give up. I can't give up. The blessings are on the horizon. Keep going. No matter the mental strain. Keep going. The pain of growth is real but may the transitions in your life make you stronger Kings and Queens. Pray for us as we continue to pray for you. I leave you with these questions. What are the challenging transitions that you're going through right now? What lessons are you learning from them? And how can you utilize those lessons to become more than what you already are? Lets start a discussion in the comments below. I too am looking for the answers. We love you Royalself fam. Stay focused. Stay committed. Stay Royal 👑.
