Rewriting your stars is as easy as ABC
I have been rich and I’ve been poor. Believe me, honey, rich is better.-Sophie Tucker
Quotes like these sometimes seem cheesy, crappy or just too uncool.
But once you begin to dig them you will never be the same, you may need some form of self-development to get there.
This quote takes me back to my upbringing, for the better part we could never afford a meal.
For me being poor isn’t an option. Hold on, hear me out first.
I come from a family of naturally slender people so now you can imagine slim without food.
I still sometimes wonder how we stayed positive maybe that is why I am here today.
Now picture this, back in the 90s we lived in a rented one bedroomed house before it got converted into two. We were a family of 6, my mum and the 5 of us, though one of us was mostly away. The constant drama in that home is to be cherished. Anyway, my mum was a very hardworking lady but then she lost her job, with no other skills, life changed for us. Borrowing and foraging started. We had some pawpaw trees around the building, if trees could express their feelings, these ones would have been scared of us. We hardly let the fruits to ripen to eat them, we ate them crunchy and for some reason loved it.
That was our life. Our childhood. Being sent home from school for fees and all was the norm. At some point, some of us tried boarding school, I eventually ended up living with an uncle for all of my teen life. It wasn’t easy, anyone who has lived with a relative would know what I am talking about. I am grateful that I knew it wasn’t my future, I felt it in my core. “The must be a better way”, I told myself. And I decided whatever it takes, whatever happens in my life, I may have to paint the sky blue first before I call it quits. What I didn’t realise at that was that I was manifesting. I had asked for something at that point in my life and it got written in the stars.
I have been blessed. I have travelled to places that I only read in books.
Most of us go through a lukewarm life, neither cold nor hot. With some lucky occasional movie star moments thrown in the mix. But deep down we know we want better, we know we deserve better. I have lived a life of doubts in the past before I reached a point of total believe. Doubts and fears only manifest the negative. Now that I know better, it is all about concentrating on the rock star within me and nurturing that.
I’m assuming if you are still reading this you do go through the same thing, a lot of us do.
Some give up and settle. That is where the difference comes in.
Is there a solution? There is, always has been.
I made it my mission too help as many people as I can.
Help you realise that we can create our ideal life, and that life is what we make it, it is all within our control. Anyone, including you have the capability of making a change in their lives.
I will share a simple method. As easy as ABC…
- Ask, believe and receive.
- Be grateful for everything. For the things you have and those you are yet to have.
- Care for yourself and others. Look after your mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. Care for others by giving anything you have it could be your time, your knowledge it is not always about money.
Practice makes perfect. Do forgive yourself if you haven’t mastered it yet. Just remind yourself that life is about enjoying the journey not about getting to the destination, it makes it a lot easier and fun. Be open to learning something new everyday, it is one of the things I look forward to everyday.
My website covers different aspects of development with a lot of other tips and resources. If there is anything you need to ask, please do, I am more than happy too share my experience. Go ahead and rewrite your stars.
Ps: Now I know that the pawpaw trees were God’s way of providing for us even in the toughest of times, the trees had to obey.
