Recently there has been what you might consider a blog beef between me and other bloggers.
While i am saddened that black people cant put away their petty differences and realize that we are going to continue to be dominated by others as long as we let the stupidest things divide us, i have to accept the fact that i haven't been invited to some blogs and whenever i post something on their blog they erase it lol.
While I am disheartened by this recent discovery, i understand that we (including myself) still have a lot of growing up to do.
I visited the incomparable eb the celeb's site and she made an interesting quote when someone asked her what motivates her.
She said "I think the fact that I love things not coming easy to me is what motivates me."
Even though she is obviously a very confused person lol, she brought up in my mind a good point.
What she stated is a mark of a true warrior.
The strongest people in our society look at the rough things that come up in their lives as a challenge.
They thrive on adversity, and they use that energy to motivate them to do great things.
I first wrote this blog to quote unquote teach people about how to solve their problems.
But most of what Ive learned came from the people who graced this blog with their presence, and this is one of the greatest lessons i'm in the process of learning.
I now see that adversity is in essence a challenge from God.
Because it's only through adversity that what we are truly made of shines the brightest.
I am going to continue to do the work of educating and helping to improve the lives of anyone who comes to this blog seeking solutions for their problems.
I have been through too much adversity to let a foolish scuffle rattle me into changing anything.
In any case it will only make me stronger.
Certainly i am not perfect and i have made many mistakes i'm sure.
And i am truly sorry for those mistakes, i wish i had known better.
However i don't blame myself for having a point of view, for having an opinion that might be different from others.
And if I made a mistake in the process, it is what it is, and i would appreciate it if you help me see what it truly is.
Because im all about improving myself.
I will not be offended.
When JT goes down and finally bites the bullet, it will be said that he truly loved his people and he was truly looking for solutions to the problems that we face.
Thanks to my faithful bloggers.
My appreciation cannot be expressed in words!
