Learn to Love Yourself: Fight For Your Furture

    This might sound cliche but it's the bold truth, that you have to fight for what you want. And the harder you scuffle the closer you come to obtaining it. That goes from everything in life from job promotions, respect in a relationship, equality among peers and on and on. Sometimes the battle is to move forward or away from someone or something. Never stop fighting. If you do that means you have let down your guard. If you let down your guard you give away the control you have over your life. This is part two of my "Learn to Love Yourself." Series. In part one I helped you find your true worth. This time around I will prepare you to become a warrior so you can brawl for it all.

      "Some people die at age 25..." - Benjamin Franklin. I first heard that quote from the world renowned Les Brown. The quote means some people give up on there true aspirations and dreams at age 25. Some people that we deem to be successful aren't exactly happy. This is because they aren't  doing what they have a passion for. You must muster up enough courage to battle anything life throws at you. Fear is whats paralyzing you. Let your desire to grasp what you aspire for awaken your inner light. We all get knocked down, around and upside down. But how well we heal and recover makes the difference. The difference between being one step closer to your dreams and not even attempting to take one step.


      Yeah, I know what ya'll are thinking "Eye Of The Tiger" by Survivor, really. But it is still one of the most inspirational songs about fighting ever created. And the name of the band is Survivor for goodness sake. The key theme to the song is focus. Think, why do they put blinders on horses and why do football helmets have little peripheral view. Those blinders and helmets help the horse and the football player to focus on whats ahead. You can easily loose sight of  your goals if you don't line them up in your sights. Now visualize the life you really want. Now act on it. Acting on it is fighting for it. If you get hit hard and your knees buckle keep up your scuffle and don't give up.

      I will close with some positive affirmations. Now say to yourself, "I will fight for what I want.", "I am a warrior, and warriors never give up.", "My past is my past, I must live for now.", " I know my worth and am willing to do what I must to get the results that I want." Now lift up them hands, ball them up and fight.

    2. I have failed at a host of things in my lifetime however with that failure came a great learning experience. Through all my failures I never gave up. I was heartbroken and I just kept trying. I believed in myself and pulled myself up by my boot straps. Praised God through my failures and by God's Grace I am here today.

    3. Amen! It's great to hear a story of triumph.

New Beginings

          Hello all. This post will be simple, raw, and thought provoking. I have decided to write all my furture blog content free form. Meaning whatever is on my mind for the week is what I'm posting. With that being said this blog post is about new beginings.     First let me reintroduce myself. I am Lenwood Wilson,  Jr.. Please do note the junior, lol. My nickname name growing up was Chip or Big Chip. The nickname name was given to me at birth. It was to symbolize that I would be like my father; ie "Chip off the old block!". My father wasn't around for me after age 5. I am glad to say the negative parts of his character never rubbed of on me.    I grew up in the high crime city of Baltimore, MD U.S.A.. Primary none for sensless killings, drugs and H.I.V.. I was not a homebody and most of my friends where deep in the drug game. I made a conscious choice never to sell drug. I still hung out with my friends whether just chilling, beef or drug transactions. I can only

Try A Triathlon: Matthew Bailey

            Do not ever say that you can't do something if you have never tried. On July 17, 2015 a 9 year old  diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy competed and finished the Castle Howard Triathlon in North Yorkshire, England. This boy's name was Bailey Matthews. He did what most adults couldn't even imagine accomplishing. His determination and will to do is all he needed to amount such a daunting task. Of course much planning and training took place but that is all a part of completing any given goal.           Inspired by his experience last year Bailey has organized a triathlon for kids with disabilities called the "Be More Bailey Triathlon". He has warmed so many hearts and inspired so many people. Now he is using his acclaim for the betterment of others. This is so great. One of the biggest thing anyone can do is be of good service to others. I saw him do a interview after the race and he said something so cute but encouraging "I figured I'd giv
