A Moment of Motivation: One Lesson I Learned Since My Last Birthday

BREAKING NEWS: Today is my Birthday! Hey now!!! Turn up? Ha!

Anywho, I am so blessed to see another year. Last year, on this day, I didn’t have half of what I have now.  At that time, I had recently signed to an acting agency and was dabbling into other businesses because the company I was working for laid me off the December before. I was still living at home. I did not have a stable job. I don’t like asking people for anything because I have pride issues (I’m working on it),  so I only had my severance checks and unemployment money to survive which was totally fine since my bills were still getting paid.

Through it all, I learned one lesson…never lose your Faith. During that time, I stayed productive, grateful and prayerful.

I have this sign hanging on my wall at home. Faith.

As I always say, everything is TEMPORARY. A lot of people tend to blame the “devil” on everything, but my thoughts are different. I believe it isn’t the “devil” all of the time, but most of the time it’s God testing you! Are you going to become frustrated or have faith that everything is going to work out? I always choose the latter. Are you going to let fear hold you back or are you going to have faith to move you forward? You can either complain and play the blame game or you can learn from each life lesson.

Well since my last birthday, I landed a Producer opportunity at 102.7, KIIS-FM, which is LA’s #1 Hit Music station. I booked a few acting roles. I’m a freelance writer for Madame Noire. I moved into my own place. And I continue to walk by faith and not by sight.

Remember, life gives you the test first and then the lesson. Always keep the Faith.

Faith is putting hope and power into that which we can not see now…but know we will see in the future.
