It’s already June! I was going to write a quarterly review in April. 30 posts later, I guess I missed the boat! Busy. Busy. Busy.
This was going to be a more extensive post….but I realized some of the things I wanted to talk about: namely weight and self-esteem and being realistic deserves its own separate post. Then, I realized I have already discussed many of these points before, so this might be yet another angle to an ongoing conversation…or beating a dead horse.
I suppose the lurkers who de-cloak from the Romulan Bird-Of-Prey to comment will decide if it’s protest-worthy.
So, I’m going to make this brief because I’m editing some of the more heavy-hitting posts to come. You know if you come to this forum it is to compel you to be better, faster, stronger. To think strategically and critically. To go for broke.
I have grand expectations for you and want everyone [who isn't depraved] to do well. Unlike some other people who are crabs in a barrel and looking for ways to derail other people’s progress so their mediocrity is excused — or based on simple hatred for others.
When you view the interactions and behavior of people in other groups [non-black] it is glaringly obvious how they support each other and are genuinely pleased for the success of their peers. They help people because they have generous spirits and many realize the rising tide theory does matter in real life for their collectives. There’s hefty competition but they are not operating from a poverty mentality where they feel uncontrollably compelled to tear someone else down [think Cinderella and her step-family when they ripped off her homespun dress in a fit of rage and jealousy].
The only support I’ve observed that’s expansive and consistent is based on something derogatory or mediocre. There’s really nothing I can do about the actions of others, but I make sure to not be anything like that. Yet, I will call a spade a spade for sure!
Moving on, I’m plotting away at my Get Fit In 2011 goals, my Build A Better Nest and my Get Your Love Boat In Order goals. These are all integrated and will continue for the rest of my life actually, but I want to see measured results.
I also have some changes in store for this forum and the blogging audience as we move into our 4th year at Acts Of Faith In Love & Life. In response to what I think are somewhat questionable pleads about walking some of y’all through BWE 101 I’m going to release the first forum related digital guide which is a primer. I just wrote it two weeks ago, so it’s not culled from the archives but it would be somewhat familiar to anyone who’s been paying attention here.
You can read it at your leisure and take all the time you want. It will not however be free. You’re already getting premium content at this forum consistently and have for quite some time. Faith does not do fluff, candy-covered poison or backpedal on key issues and play dumb about the negative impact it is certain to have.
I do think this audience of those who say they want to change had better make the leap. You’re throwing away time you will never get back. I try not to have regrets, but thinking about the things I would’ve done differently had I been armed with knowledge is a thorn in my side that hurts!
I sincerely hope the younger readers have learned valuable lessons that will carry them further into their adulthood that will serve them well. To that end, you may have heard Miss Glamtastic got married. She began reading these forums less than one year ago, applied key principles, made appropriate adjustments based on her needs, remained flexible, met/vetted a man and married him in three months. Amazing!
I don’t know what else to tell you fence sitters and deniers except, digging deep and being focused will yield stellar results at improving your lives. So what are you waiting for?
