Dad sent me this picture today. it made me smile a ton! this man is my motivation to continue doing what i do. we motivate each other through random pictures like this. it brought about all sorts of emotions. it also brought back one d**n specific memory that i had encountered with someone 10 years ago. f**k it, i am just going to be as real as i can be on this one…
“i don’t think this is going to work out. you are not going anywhere. you are going to end up like your father working at a grocery store.” – a very mean girl.
first of all, there is nothing wrong with working in grocery stores! they put food on our table for our family & for millions of other families out there! ok, at the time, i was not in a university. i was trying to find my way. i was trying to figure out this thing we call “life”. i was working at a grocery store with my pops in indiana after we had lost our grocery. anyway, mean girl. this person had come from a higher socioeconomic class & clearly did not understand that money was not everything, & this comment was meant in the most demeaning way possible. we initially connected for a bit till her mask fell off and i saw this side. it never went anywhere because i frankly don’t have time for bullshit. 10 years later, she was right! here i am! i did end up like my father! exactly like him! i learned work ethic, dedication, motivation, strength, persistence, and to never give up. i learned to push through the hard times & i carried on throughout the struggles i had because i had an example in him to look after. someone asked me yesterday “why do you talk about your dad so often?” my response: it’s is easy, i am pretty f*****g proud and i'll put it out there. sure, i did not end up in a grocery store. i figured i’d leave it to him, he looks much better doing it anyway 😉❤. i am where i am because of him!
it gets better… this mean girl. yea… she tried reconnecting with me not too long ago after she stumbled on my account on here.
yea... it was not happening. bye felecia ✌
