Google defines loyalty as the practice of being loyal or strong feelings of allegiance.
I guess that’s kinda accurate.
How to run more than sure that we all have our own personal definitions of loyalty.
I believe that loyalty is a necessary quality to possess.
Let’s face it without loyalty
most of us who have hardly no interaction with anyone know relationships no friendships none of that.
but for some of us the quality of loyalty is not an asset it’s a deficit it’s a liability.
we find ourselves put in situations where our sense of loyalty is held over us and used to keep us hostage .
I believe that’s because we are putting our loyalties in the wrong place.
I think the person we have to be most loyal to his ourselves first.
So today take a stand don’t let your loyalty put you in a prison don’t waste your loyalty on things that aren’t loyal to you.

BRING THE BODY AND EVENTUALLY, THE MIND WILL FOLLOW(Somebody famous must have said that).
I heard the old folks say stuff like..
ITS A NEW DAY. YESTERDAY IS HISTORY.
Even if you woke up feeling like you’re just not up for whatever and you’d rather stay in bed, I want to encourage you to get up. GET SUITED & BOOTED!!! Get outside, get some fresh air and Feel the sun. Go ahead and let it warm you up. Suit -up and Show-up. You’ll be glad you did. In life, we have to keep moving. Even when there’s no one to encourage you, you have to encourage yourself.

No matter what we must maintain an attitude of gratitude.
what we tend to forget is that we attract what we put out.
There’s a proverb that says a kind word turns away wrath.
an old story I heard once about a man who was complaining about having no shoes until he saw the man with no feet.
My point is no matter how bad you think it is it can always be worse.
and our best chance to change whatever it is that we don’t want in our life around is to put out positive things in our universe.
So remember stay grateful.
A little bit of gratitude goes a long way.

A really famous person , who’s name escapes me right now . Said ” if you can’t fly , run . if you can’t run , walk . if you can’t walk ,crawl , but whatever you do , Don’t stop ! you have to keep moving!
Don’t loose your momentum. Guard it like a precious treasure. It’s ok to protect you. It’s ok to practice safe self care. It’s ok to separate yourself from toxic people no matter who they are.
When were kids, most of us were asked, “what do you want to be when you grow up”? Most of us had an answer. We would use our imagination and play out those rolls of Doctors, Lawyers, Movie Stars, The President, and some of us even dreamed of bring Princesses and Cowboys, No dream was to big and no one would dare attempt to squash it.
What happend? What changed?
Well as time went on , we were told we have to be practical. That we were about to enter the “Real World” and if we were going to succeed in life , It was imperative that we develop “Real World” goals and develop “Real World” skills. Well for most of us the development of those real-world skills , slowly killed the biggness of those little people dreams.
Well in the pursuit of pennies , we did what we had to do. We put away those childhood fantasies and went out into the world.
Most of us were not truly prepared for just how ruff that part of the journey could get. A lot of us ended up with unbelievable bumps and bruises. Some of us were horribly scarred .
I said all that to say. In 2019 you are your cultivator. I would suggest that you find the strength to dare to dream just as big today as you did then, and be prepared for the people around you to attempt to shoot it down. Welcome that opposition. Use it as the fuel needed to give you the momentum go for it . Whatever your “IT” maybe. don’t believe them when they say “you’re to old for that” or ‘your time for that has passed” and the one that bugs me the most” maybe in another life”
I say “No”! To all of those self defeating statements . The truth is as long as you have breath in your body, you are still growing. Every day you wake up you have the power to pursue your dreams the same way you did when you were a kid.
So, Take that chance. Learn to dance. Fall in Love with you. Go back to school. Plan that trip. Paint that picture.write that book. Submit those head shots. Whatever your “It” is reach out and grab it. Believe me it’s still in there .
Trust me, I know, all those things we put on the shelf , way back then . they’re still right there. When I was in a broken place , some how found myself in front of my shelf. I saw a jar of dreams I thought I had lost. I picked it up. I dusted it off. I cried. Then I opened it. I felt insecure and inadequate, but , I still opened it.
That decision to take that chance. Has proven the be the bestest and scariest , decision I’ve ever made, and I feel good.
I guess what I’m trying to say, Is welcome to the late bloomers club. I’ll see you at our next meeting 😊.
