I’ve prayed about it and I’ve given my worry’s to God.
Are there any latch key kids out there? The definition for Latchkey Kid: is a child who returns to an empty home after school or a child who is often left at home with no supervision because their parent is away at work. This started with me when I was in the 3rd grade (1980s) because my parents had split up but I had an advantage because my grandparents stayed next door, so if things got a little dicey I would haul tail over there. To look back at it, my mom allowed me to have independence at a very early age, even if it was by default. I learned how to cook simple meals by watching my mom, grandmothers, and Julia Childs on TV. My mom taught me how to clean up after myself, wash dishes, and personal hygiene care. I learned how to be a man via my uncles on both sides of the family and I learned how to love via the constructs of Hollywood and television, which I’m still trying to unlearn today…lol. But all in all being a latchkey kid was a good experience for me, it allowed me to dive deep into myself, it allowed me to start the healing process from the trauma of being born with a birth defect and lastly it allowed me to see my future self, the man I am today, and for that I am forever grateful that I was a latchkey kid, those were simpler and majestic times!❤️
I think I’ve done pretty good for myself!
Born with a birth defect and being held to low expectations due to other folks limited expectations. Lord willing, in a couple of months, I will see my 50th birthday, I am truly blessed!!! #cleftlip #cleftpalate #birthdefects #miraclebaby #blessed #50thbirthday #sagittarius
No one will complete you, like you. Other people belong to themselves. Your true love is within yourself.
Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing good on this beautiful Thursday. I want to add a little positivity to the world today. I recently found out that my job will no longer need my services in a few weeks. In the security business we all brace ourselves for these types of moments because that’s how it goes in this industry. First of all I’m not bitter, although I’ve worked for different companies, I remained on this job site for 16 years, this is very unusual because most clients prefer new faces every 3-5 years or so, this particular site always recommended for me to stay when potential security companies came to pitch their bids. So to say that I’ve been blessed is an understatement. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to serve such a prestigious community for so many years and this may be a small setback for me and my family but I know God has bigger plans for me. I’m not going to lie, anxiety has kicked in a bit when I was looking over my finances this week and the thought of ending this blog has crossed my mind but I came to the conclusion that this blog is my therapy and went ahead and paid for my domain name and subscription for another year. Shoutout to you for inspiring me to write, without my readers, there would be no boohardy.com. Be Blessed!
When a man or woman is down, don’t laugh at them, learn from them.
As a kid I dreamed of being an author with a wild imagination who published tons of fictional books! Well, I’m not an author but I’m a part time blogger, I’m not professional, but I inspire to be. You know how it goes, you want to be validated by your family, but they won’t care until you reach stardom, they can care less about the grind, but I digress. I truly believe the stars are aligning for me and to add, I’m manifesting my dreams to the universe, I want to see a shift before my 50th birthday and that is less than 5 months away! I just want to be financially abundant, I want to be financially independent of the rat race of a 9 to 5. Does anyone out there feel the same? What are your dreams and aspirations?
