Who Am I When Everything is Fabulous?
At times we wish everything was perfect. We hope for a good education, a good job, a good man (LOL), a nice family, a nice home, and lots of money. So what happens, you have everything you want and your life is FABULOUS (or at least for right now). I've had ups and downs, happiness and sadness, but for the past 30 years, my life has been FABULOUS (well, at least in my eyes).
One thing I’ve learned is when you have everything you want there is no more room to pray for “stuff” (at least for yourself). I found that when everything is FABULOUS, I find purpose because I am no longer focused on myself. I don’t worry about my goals, my wants, and my dreams. Instead I have time to think about what I can do for someone else.
My purpose as a social entrepreneur is to bring about positive change in my community-Baltimore. Whether it’s mentoring young girls, keeping the community informed about politics, preparing a motivational speech, or giving my opinion about maintaining healthy relationships, my season right now is to give back. And that’s who I am when everything is fabulous!
