I’m officially in another decade of my life. 30 years spinning on this planet. That’s heavy. I’m an adult now. I pay bills. I get sleepy around 10pm. I prefer a chill Friday reading a book over going out and drinking my paycheck away. This is the start of a whole new chapter.
Reflecting on the last ten years a lot has happened. Some good. Some bad. But all in all I was able to make it through. If I could go back and tell my younger self anything it would be go with the flow. Let it be. You’ll find out who you are. It seems scary at times and the unknown can give rise to anxiety but it works out. The puzzle pieces fall into the right place at the right time. Just trust the process. Stay on your grind but don’t forget to enjoy yourself as well.
I am no longer in my 20’s trying to figure out who I am. I feel more certain. I stand on solid ground. To think that ten years ago, I lacked the sufficient knowledge of myself, my people’s history, and who I am as a person. As a result, I floated through this life without anything to anchor me in the present. Now that’s all changed and it makes all the difference how I interact with this world.
To imagine the 90’s was over 20 years ago blows my mind. Man, we getting old.
I have big plans for my 30’s. My focus has sharpened. My belief in myself is stronger than ever. I know my potential and what I am capable of accomplishing. And I do not shy away from doing what needs to be done in order to see it happen. I am no stranger to hard work. My immediate goal is put myself in a space where running for President is a legitimate option on the table. That means acquiring capital. Building a political base. Networking with movers and shakers. Writing a lot. Speaking even more. Deepening my analysis of the overall situation here. By the time I’m entering into my 40’s, I think there’s a good chance I’ll be in a position to make this happen. There’s a lot to be done to turn this country around and for all intents and purposes, I plan to participate in that transformation.
Shout out to everyone that shares this birthday with me.
