Bulletproof # i will rise up

I guess Andra Days song I will rise up really got me cause it inspired my topic today [bulletproof].

Lebron James once said ”i like criticism because it makes me strong ”. After a bad day i look at myself in the mirror and i realize that their invisible bullets had not killed me i was still me the same person they tried to kill with their words.Some times if we listen to people we will not go anywhere because people will discourage you but still we rise .

So many people have told me i am going to fall ,i am going to be nothing but after watching Boyka undisputed 3 am all motivated.I told them i think one of the main reasons i am where i am today is because i have gone through tough times growing up.No matter the people around tell you ,you are not worth it .People think they can break us with their words but when you know who you are all that does not matter .

I am here today to tell you we can all make it ,we are worth it .One thing i have learnt so far is people do not understand they just judge you ,yes maybe right now you have failed one or two things.Those things you have failed do not define where you are going because each one of us can make a decision to start afresh .

Michael Jordan once said ”i can accept failure everyone fails at something but i cannot accept not trying ”. You can make it in fact you will, you are worth it and that bullet vest you are wearing that is called hope can take you places .No bullets can stop you ,we should stop listening to the fake friends .We will make it because we can ,we will rise up always and we are bullet proof.

Serene Williams once said during an interview ‘like dust i rise ,bringing the gift my ancestors left i rise ‘. You will make it cause like dust you rise.



#Be yourself

”Your time is limited do not waste it living someone else`s life – Steve Jobs”

I would be lying to you if i said i have not felt insecure and worthless certain times in my life .It really does not matter what people think about you but what you think about yourself.Everyday you have to wake with that fire inside you,look into the mirror and just motivate yourself because you are the real deal.

”Your self worth is determined by you,you do not have to depend on people telling you who you are – Beyonce ”

Many times in our lives we have made mistakes looked up to people who in return weighed us down .I mean i have lost friends people i thought loved me but am still standing .Like my grandfather liked to say using one of his favorite quotes”when life offers you lemons add vodka ”. I guess the most important thing i learnt from him is sometimes when we doubt ourselves and we have lost people and are alone at the time.It`s best we keep cherishing ourselves because everything happens for a reason.

”i must undertake to love and respect myself as though my very life depends on self-love and self-respect”- Maya Angelou.

You are enough and you do not need anyone to tell you who you are because you are beautiful just the way you are.Be who you are and say what you feel because the people that care do not matter and those that matter do not care.

”Courage is resistance to fear,mastery of fear,not absence of fear-Mark Twain”

Maya Angelou once said ”Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you cannot practice any other virtue consistency” .i actually believed her when she said that .

''Joshua 1;9 -Be strong and courageous do not be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you where ever you go''

This verse i put it on my wallpaper because every time i am taking a walk down memory lane and am shocked of all the things i did in the past .it just keeps me motivated and keeps me going .Not long ago i used to be so anti-social i did not like talking to people at all,at school i just felt out of place.Someone would could talk to me and i would not answer i mean i was weird .

The main reason am saying this is if i had not gained the courage to talk to people ,to change my attitude i would not be the person i am today .I mean you have to wake up every morning and believe something good is going to happen.Joel Osteen once said the environment you are in the people you are around define your character.So i guess i did not talk to people because certain moments in my life i was scared ,in fear and discouraged .Thank God i woke up one day and i decided to breathe in the courage and exhale the fear .Many things are going to happen ,we are going to be in fear but when you know where you stand nothing will stop you .


I had the courage to talk to people unafraid to be myself.You have the courage to say what you feel ,to do what you have been scared to do mainly because we got this .Today is the day you decide if you going to live in fear or you are fighter .We have courage to face all our fears .I have faced my fears and courage has been one of my best friends and right now fear and i we just hate each other.

''He who is not courageous enough to take risks will not accomplish anything in life -Muhammad Ali''

i faced my fear so nothing can stop you from  doing the same #not afraid  #courageous

Hope #you got this

Like Robert H. Schuller said ”Let your hopes not your hurts shape your future”. Look at a certain point in our life it has seemed like giving up is the best thing to do but am here to tell you that everything can change no matter the situation you are in .God always has a way of changing things .

Jeremiah29 verse 11 ”For i know the plans i have for you declares the lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future”

Certain times in my life i have cried i have given up ,we all have lost people lost certain opportunities in life but when you know where you are going …why stop now.My grandfather always said in life no situation is permanent ,people are going to tell you you are not going to make it because you are poor.You tell them i am not poor but i am pre-rich !

Angela Bassett said when people come at you and they say you are not cool you are nasty you tell them this me being resolute and standing firmly in my truth.I regret all the times i listened to peoples discouragement ,all those moments they weighed me down.Now am just feeling sorry for all those people that are going to try that because i know who i am and where am headed.

Am telling you today stop looking back just go where you going ,those who try to stop you tell them i know where i am headed.The lord is our strength and light he has made a path for us to walk and we got this.

#am ready



”In the end she became more than she expected she became the journey , and like all journeys, she did not end she just simply changed direction and kept going -r.m.drake”

Well sometimes we are all confused as to who we are but the moment you know who you are and know your worth the game changes.Sometimes people will tell you ,you cannot make it but when the voice inside tells you you can do it then why not.Just like Lisa Nichols said on never broke again ‘sometimes you leave everything and everyone behind because you have to like you first and change yourself to reach your full potential ‘ .Don’t let anyone stop you from being a better new version of yourself everyday and when you have reached your goal just know the journey has just begun .

You don’t stop because strength does not come from winning but from your failures and past mistakes the very moment you say no to defeat.Like Maya Angelou said ‘i can be changed but what happens to me but i certainly refuse to be reduced by it ‘.
