vibes and stuff

I really know how it feels to be, stressed out, stressed out
When you’re face to face with your adversity
I really know how it feels to be, stressed out, stressed out
We’re gonna make this thing work out eventually

I love that song by "Tribe Called Quest." I really enjoy hip hop with a message by groups like that and wish we could have more today.

Something positive going on in my life is feeling loved and blessed. I am feeling more and more loved everyday and realizing that God has a purpose and plan for my life. It feels really good to trust in Him.

Let me see...

1. My tuition was paid for this semester via a wonderful giver (so, no loans for me).

2. Speaking of school, I didn't have to buy my books...that was taken care of as well.

3. My brother just accepted a head coaching position...Yeeeeeaaaaaaa! Now I can borrow some money from him.

4. I received a new laptop.

5. I'm growing into my own woman each minute, and she is FIERCE :)

6. I'm learning how to let go and let God...slowly, but I'm still learning.

7. Last but not least, God is showing me everyday that I am too vital to allow the iniquities of the world to affect me, and that His is always there...even when I'm doing wrong...everlasting love.

BEATS RHYMES AND LIFE....One of Tribe's Best Albums....My favorite song on that joint is "Keep It Moving" and "Word Play"

I got a phone call about an interview for a job today...I am very happy about that because I was becoming a little discourage.

This was a great post because it forces the reader to think about the good in life and thats something many of us forget to do because its the negative things that take up so much energy.

dessex said...

By The Way..."The Jam" is crazy too on that album. Sorry but ATCQ is like my favorite group ever.

Miss Mika said...

I am living, breathing, walking, talking, in good health, and I have wonderful positive people in my life that love me and support me.

You know, I needed to see this post today. Lately I have been reflecting on all the negative things that have been going on the past couple of weeks (you already know), and I haven't really acknowledged the positives.

Thank you for that observation.

Hey 12Kyle

Grandma use to say life is what you make it. If it hands you a bunch of lemons, add a little sugar water and make LEMONADE!
Keep yo head up!

God has truly moved on my behalf this week. The doors were literally closing in my face..but each time someone told me could literally see their hearts and minds changing in my favor to YES! Thank you LORD!
I firmly believe that your doors will be opened too 12Kyle, your family will remain strong and true, and God will put someone in position who some how, some way will use their power and abilities on your behalf. Now, set and position yourself to receive what I have spoken. In Jesus NAME!
We love ya'll!
