A few weeks have passed since I last posted for #PositiveMondays, but that is truly my most busy and longest day at work so I don’t get to blog too much. Don’t hold it against me! 🙂 Since today is Monday, it’s only right for me to give my little dose of positive energy to start my readers off right. Well I have every reason to think positively today and here’s why. I can count my best friends on one hand, I have four of them. This past weekend me and one of my best friends (who already graduated college) traveled to Richmond, VA for two of my other best friends’ college graduations. That only leaves myself and another one of my best friends without degrees thus far, but trust and believe we’ll get there.
To know everything these ladies went through to get where they are makes me SO PROUD to call them my friends. I’m the youngest of us all, so it’s good having real friends to be honest with you and motivate you like mine do. We all have been friends since elementary school, so you can’t even imagine everything we’ve been through together. For us to be able to say that we’re still hanging in there, and we’re on a path to greatness is EPIC to me. Mind you, we are all young BLACK females which speaks volumes in itself! We each have a “story” that leads us up to where we are. And none of our journeys have been easy. Definitely not the most difficult in the world, but not easy in the slightest. That goes to show that with hard work, determination, and the right mind state you can do and be whatever you want!
And if that isn’t enough to make you feel positive, I’ve got one for you… Despite the “Doom’s Day” predictions that were flying around the world, you’re still here! The world didn’t end Saturday at 6 pm to everyone’s surprise *sarcastic face* so stop complaining about everything and CREATE A GOOD DAY!!
