Letting Go- Self Awareness


What if you were the person someone had to let go of in order to move into their destiny? Sometimes when our friends, family, partners, significant others, coworkers, business colleagues, etc. let us go we get upset not realizing sometimes we are the reason for the departure. Often we don’t bring anything to the table, or we distract or hinder, or always point out flaws without any encouragement and when our counterparts let us go we don’t understand why. Sometimes we have to be courageous enough to look at ourselves to see what rolls we play in early dismissals from a friendship or relationship. Becoming self aware allows us not only to know who we are but also what we are not. #selfawareness

Know When


You gotta know when

You gotta know when to be mad

and when to stay cool if you’re going to make it though

because you don’t have energy for bullshit

So pay attention

Open your eyes and see

See who’s there

and where they’re at

And what they’re doing

Ain’t nobody got time for that mess.

Feel like beating you for trying to distract me

That’s why I’m so disappointed

I am never trying to take your eyes

off of whatever it is that you see

that you want

and you could possibly get

Pay attention….

 

I Said I Would


I said that I would

I said that I would heed to the call when I heard it

I said I would do it no matter what

No matter how much fear tried to overwhelm my spirit

No matter how much someone criticized what I am called to do

No matter how much anyone tried to distract me

 

I said that I would

I said that I would be obedient to your will

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said I’d do it even if you took me in a different direction

Even if I didn’t know where I was going

Even if what I started out doing changes

I said that I would continue

 

I said that I would

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said that I would do it even if I saw no end result

That I wouldn’t let my eyes disturb your vision

That I would only listen for the sound of your voice

 

I said that I would

I said that I would keep you first

I said that I wouldn’t get in the way

That I would remain humble to your presence

That I would stay in my place

 

I said that I would…
