Right now, I’m going through a rough time. But I have faith that thing will bounce back into place. You never know how things can turn out for the worst until what you have becomes what you had. What I’ve noticed over the past month is that we have to remain in
good great excellent faith if we want to continue on that straight and narrow path. My mother, my grandmother and countless others have always stated where that straight path will lead you to. What we also have to realize is that we are not alone in this struggle. We have those that are willing to lend us a helping hand when we need it. But you have to remember that you can’t bite that hand as well. As much as it pains me to do so, I have to swallow that pill called pride and make changes that benefits myself. In life, there’s always change since we’re not fully complete. What I mean by that is we may be satisfied temporarily, but in time change will come whether we like it or not. I know that I’m not perfect and will never claim to be or aspire to reach that level. I, Derek, will not these sour times destroy me. I will take this lesson and apply it to what I’ve already learned in these 31 years. Also use it as a testimony so that others won’t make these same mistakes. Mistakes can be lead you on a correct path. It may set you back in a way, but learning from that will do us all a world of good. I’ve made my fair share of mistakes that I’m still learning from daily. I know what needs to be done in this journey of the road called life.
I’ve always been hard on myself. Physical, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Just want to push myself. I’ve had opportunities that I let get away but I need to change that about myself. My life may have not been at times the best. I still think about how my mother and I used to live and how we overcame that. Now she’s a Pastor and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I’ve had a few accomplishments myself but I want to do more and gain more as well.
