Lend Me Your Ear

Anyone who truly knows me, knows I love to have fun. I love to laugh and make the people around me laugh. I love positive energy and vibes, and genuine conversations. I have no problem sparking up a conversation with strangers. And sometimes, strangers have no problem sparking conversations with me. I can’t tell you how many times I’m out and about and someone just starts talking to me about serious, personal details in their lives. Seriously, I can’t make this up.

One day, I had just come out of the nail salon getting a mani and pedi, when I decided to go a couple doors down to this Thai restaurant (sidebar: if you are ever in the Atlanta Metro area and want some good shrimp tempura or fried crabstick sushi, head on over to Rice Thai located in Stonecrest. You will thank me later.).

You Got This!

You Got This!

As I am typing this, I have a headache. I want to save these couple of sentences and just go to bed. But I can’t. I hear the chant, ‘you can do it’ playing over and over in my head. My conscious keeps telling me to ‘keep going, you got this.’

Even with this headache, and my eyes slanting from the pain, I continue to get my thoughts out. Why? Well, it’s simple; I see the sacrifices I am making turning into rewards in the near future. Writing is my passion and has been since I was a kid.
