Don’t Trust my Opinion, Trust My Experience: 20/20


“If you can dream it you can do it.” -Walt Disney

Yesterday I was doing a little thinking, and it was geared towards you, my readers. Maybe I’m shooting myself in the foot, but I critique everything I write and have written so far. As if it was never good enough or I didn’t explain what I wanted to say as accurately as possible. Yea, I’m working on releasing that suffocating thought.

However, I try very hard to be the most authentic as I possibly can, which takes extreme vulnerability. That’s another quite suffocating task that I am working on. Vulnerability seems pretty scary, but as we all know, fear is an illusion.

Anyhow, I began practicing different personal tactics to become more comfortable in sharing a raw experience, to make sure that I am being as practical as I possibly can. I don’t want to separate myself from people, especially my readers, because I am a regular individual born and bred just as they are.

Out of all the blog posts, opinions, and revelations etc., I only advise that you fully receive this one. I mean, read them all, but really immerse yourself in this one. Don’t trust my opinion, trust my experience.

Trust my journey.

Listen, follow, and be attentive to my journey. Everything that I share and advise I actively practice. A little obsessively, but there is nothing that I share that I don’t currently do or have done. I have come so far, and have found the need for sharing as I go. As Oprah says, “When you learn, teach.” Now LISTEN!

What you focus on, you will become. #GrabYourFocus

The power of visualization is like magic. Use it! Dream, visualize, imagine and act out those dreams.

It’s that easy!

Stay positive and stray away from any and everything negative. Remember, what you want for others, you will get yourself. So want and wish positive things for yourself and others. If you have a dream and you can’t see it yet, buckle down and work on increasing your faith and belief.

Go all in!

I’m going to share with you what goes on in my head, because I dream and imagine a-lot! Out of habit, I explore images or moments (like a movie) where I feel the most comfortable, content, and satisfied. I would then pick that one moment that made me feel like I’ve “done it”. To be a little plainer, I’ll visualize my Nene Leaks moment. You know the,I have arrived! moment. lol If you don’t know who Nene Leaks is, forget I just SAID that.

There’s one small thing I want to point out before I go further. I make it a habit to be present. I began to realize that awesome events were passing me by, because I was always two steps ahead, not consciously living in each moment.

Trust me, there’s nothing worse than reaching a life changing moment and not fully remembering each step it took to get there. Like you were there, but you weren’t there—consciously. Pay attention to that and make sure you achieve some sort of balance. Your achievements are nothing without each memory, cut, and/or bruise it took to receive each one.

So here’s what goes on in my head and what my defining moment looks like.

“Imagine a perfect cool climate in California just before the sun sets. If you look into the horizon, not that far, you see a huge vineyard just beyond the back porch. See it?  Okay, that vineyard and back porch is behind my house. I envision myself walking out on the balcony of my home, slowly stretching my hands across the railing to view my backyard. The one single thing I’ve always wanted as a child, a vineyard. I close my eyes and take a deep breath, soaking in the present moment. Just as goosebumps begin running up my arms, I suddenly feel a hand touch my hand and another move from my back towards my torso.  Slightly tense, I lean to the right and peak out of one eye and it’s my husband. For a half a second there I say in my head, “This man almost lost his life sneaking up on me like that.” lol Without saying a word, he stands behind me and we just gaze into our back yard in gratitude of the empire we have worked so diligently to build. We get about a little over 60 seconds to mentally disappear, until two rugrats come running behind us. Suddenly we’re instantly reminded how much more awesome our lives are, because our two little ones, and maybe another on the way. SURPRISE! What till he hears. Ha!”

Do you see the simplicity in dreaming?

It’s so easy. Start dreaming now, and create the space you want to live in. I am just an ordinary person, dreaming extraordinarily, and expecting extraordinary results.

What you don’t see now, you will see later.  Not knowing who, what, where, when, or how. I don’t see what I cannot have forever. #NoEndZone I’m staying positive and surrounding myself with individuals who share those same qualities.

After all, the best part about life is that we are the sole creators of our own universe.

“Life is a menu. Whatever you order for your life will be served to you.”-Tyrese

Have a vision, and say yes to your greatness!

If you don’t believe me, and think I’m sharing this information for whatever purpose you assume, sit back and watch my journey. Don’t trust my opinion, trust my experience.

Live abundantly!
