It’s Super Bowl Sunday. However when you’re reading this the game is over and done. However, currently it’s just started and I’m eager to see who takes home the win. The Super Bowl has a significance to me, that’s completely unrelated to football. It was during the Super Bowl in 2013 that I wrote my very first blog post. The date was February 3.
Where I started
My first blog is still up, however I’m not active on there anymore. I just keep it as a reminder of where I started, where I came from. According to a New York Times article, 95% of blogs end up being abandoned, and that was in 2009. I wouldn’t be surprised if that number is higher today. Although my first blog essentially ended up abandoned, I didn’t abandon my writing.
What have you started and quitted? Whatever it is, don’t beat yourself up about it. If you start back up again, you kind of didn’t technically quit. You just took a break, lol. Breaks are good. They can help regain focus, help you realize what it is you TRULY want. And knowing what you want is pretty much the basis of having a happy life, or you’ll be pursuing what “they” say should make you happy. Well what if you don’t want to live in suburbia and spend the weekends getting your “Martha Stuart” on. Wouldn’t it be good to know that before you put that down-payment down?
All that to say that quitting isn’t always that bad. Perspective. Keep a positive one and my guess is that you’ll fare pretty well. Choosing to stay positive regardless of what the facts may be is not being in denial. It’s survival mode, it’s faith. And faith my friends, can move mountains.
There’s a quote that says the only time you should look back is to see how far you’ve come, and I want to reiterate that today. That can single handily make you remain positive. Positivity says you may not be where you want to be, but praise God you’re not where you used to be. Let the church say amen.
Speaking of quitting, or giving up, for #TodayInBlackHistory, we say Happy Birthday to Rosa Parks whose birthday was February 4, 1913.
Have a blessed week!
