A Letter To JG

Dear JG

How are you doing my brotha? I mean, like how are you feeling, what are your thoughts, what do you think about in idle time? I’m interested in how you feel personally because that’s all that matters to me and several others. I could give a damn about a football and your ability within this game because my brother, my friend, you are much more important than any game.

I’ve been reading your story and I admit it is heartbreaking and I’m not going to be like a lot of people and tell you I understand how you felt back when all this started in Middle School, hell mentally before that. I do believe in demons and I do understand the impact of trauma and how that can have an affect on ones mind. I grew up in a small but reckless city called Saginaw. MI and have seen my fair share of crazy shit. You know, dead bodies on corners, murderers, friends I’ll never see again from death and behind bars. All that shit can break the strongest of us.

The thing is JG, you matter to a ton of people, maybe you know them but there are some you don’t know, but we are out here and in support of you!! Yes you, JG the young black King who will change the lives of thousands. We care about you because we love you and want the best for you the person. And although it is almost impossible to tune out things these days, please try to tune out football and those who only seem to care about you when you are participating for their favorite sports team. I’m all for taking care of self because at the end of the day, you have to make sure that you are fine.

You see, even with your current problems I see a long line of success waiting for you. You have already beat the odds JG, and on the road to building up yourself please remember that this is all part of the process. The only timeline that you are on is the one God has destined for you. And I know there is pain in all of this, I know there is, but you have a special story and one that you are not the only one to go through so think about that going forward. You have the ability to help more people than you ever imagined but it starts with you.

More blessings you JG and get well ASAP. We need you happy and healthy.

Relationships with Grandparents

The older I get the more I come to value those conversations with my grandmothers.  As a kid I didn't truly appreciate them as I should I just knew that for most of my life I was their favorite grandchild as I was the only one for so long.  Lol that right there put me in their good graces.  

My grandma on my moms side has always been very loving, attentive and pro-me, but she has also always been brutally honest with me since I could remember.  I never took some of her spats or disagreements with my decisions the way I took it when those same comments may have come from my mom.  Maybe her approach was different?  Or maybe I just knew better than to test my granny? lol  Either way she always stated reasons why she would feel a certain way, that made it easy for me to accept and reconsider my approach.  I mean, she was and still is highly respected in all facets that she involves herself in so I definitely appreciate that she has helped mold me into a listener.  I know that I can call my grandmother any day at any time and just talk, about life, about love, about anything.  It is quite a satisfying and calming feeling because I get the feeling that my transition from a child to an adult is respected and considered when she has conversations with me.  I tell my granny I spend to much money and she can combat that with stories of her not being financially responsible after first making some real money to make me feel better.  After the story she tells me what she did to start saving too lol.  

As I get older I understand certain things and the dynamics that go along with them, the relationships that I have with my grandmothers is something that I am grateful to have and understand.  I hope that for all of you, your relationship with your grandparents is something that is truly valuable.

Tech Slaves

Crazy how attached we are to our technology, phones, computers, tablets etc. etc.  After being without my personal computer for about 3 weeks, I have definitely noticed just how attached to my computer I am.  A slight crack in the interior of my MacBook not only took my out of commission but had me being less productive overall.  For someone looking to expand a business involving society, culture, fashion, etc., that is not a good look.  No excuses for my slackin' to post or keep updates coming, but I am now seeing just how much I rely on technology from my own point of view. 

I always thought of myself as partially addicted, lol if that is possible.  Not too involved with the scrolls and very particular with posts, most of them never including my face or location at the moment.  All that went out the window when I was without my personal computer.  Even with this issue, I was able to tap into my resourceful bag.  That was the true key to success during this stint.  While not posting blogs, I have been able keep the LimitlessLifestyleCrew Social Media up to par and even featured on a couple of podcasts, most notably Kickxerella Radio.  I'd hope you check out the content and you can be sure that more is certainly on the way!

Bounce Back Game

What is your bounce back game like?  Like really, how do you react in times of failure, loss, or any of that other bad mess that can happen to you?  The bounce back game must be strong and part of that is faith and belief in yourself.  Understanding that no matter how the cards are dealt or how they play out, you will be good regardless.  You have to believe that if you lost it all, you can get it all back, plus some.  Remember the saying, “you ain’t a boss until you take a loss.”  Well I do believe there is some truth to that.

For myself, I look at failure as lessons learned so I know that once the experienced scenarios come around again I should be able to handle and react differently so that the outcome is a bit different.  There is this Jay Z line that I always go back to time and time again.  “I will not lose for even in defeat there’s a valuable lesson learned so that evens it up for me.”  And since then that is exactly how I have approached life.  When things don’t turn out for your favor you can mope around about it or you can level up and do better.  For me, the only option is to level up.  Remember, if you lived through it then you have another chance.

This post is something short for those dealing with life’s lessons.  That is what we will call them, not losses, not failures, but life’s lessons.  Always know after a lesson, you are built for this shit!
