i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

Today was a rest day. I needed it. You know those kinda days don’t you? The ones where you plan to just rest, restore and reset. So often, those of us who are going places can become so used to moving and doing things that we forget to refuel. Planes can’t take off unless they do the same thing.

Made me wonder how so many people think they can operate off of nothing. No rest, no time to focus on recharging their batteries and yet many people think they’re actually on their way somewhere great?!! The only way any of us are going to be ready for a successful take off is that we get fueled up and ready to go far. Far too many of you reading this are guilty of not sleeping well, eating right or spending time in healthy atmospheres. Some of you are notorious for putting yourselves under tremendous amounts of stress. You are attracted to drama and people who love negativity. You never know what it’s like not to hear people saying toxic things to you. How do you expect to take off when everyone around you is so pessimistic and discouraging? They love to speak death instead of speaking life to you. You stay around these kind of individuals and actually plan on going great places!?! I’m sorry but that’s got to change. It’s time to check yourself and be honest. Are you seriously doing what you need to do in order to be in the right head space for where you want to go? Are your spending habits helpful to your ascent? How about your thinking? Some of you are guilty of thinking about the wrong things all the time. You’re always thinking crazy thoughts. Not good for your mental health or the people around you. Your departure is your responsibility and you can’t go far if you’re not putting the proper fuel in your spiritual, emotional and mental tank. Stop hanging around questionable characters who always make you second guess yourself. Get yourself full of wisdom for where you’re going! Guard your heart and mind and then you’ll begin to have the strength and fortitude needed to do what you haven’t been able to do. In most cases it’s not that you can’t accomplish your goals, it’s just that you’ve been overwhelmed, overworked, and depleted of the energy needed to travel anywhere other than around the block.

You’ve got nations in you! But you can’t conquer them if you sleep like a vampire. You can’t reach the heights set for you if you’re living in some of these strange places. Sofas and basements are ok when you’re in dire circumstances. They’re ok if it’s just a temporary situation, but how long are you going to justify living anywhere? You need a stable environment and a steady schedule. One suitable for an adult! You need one that fits where you’re going. You need discipline over your environment and conversations. You need self control and a proper gauge on who you are before you can reach a new level.

It’s time you get started now. It’s time to fuel up, because there’s greatness awaiting you!
