I just lost my job of 16 years 🤦🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

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!

Pics from The Hardy Homestead

I had a vision and a way was made! Our family homestead is receiving the love and positive energy it deserves! It was truly a spiritual journey walking through that sacred land over the weekend🙏🏾

Professional blogger

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?

A small prayer

I am inviting you to join me for a short prayer in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Let us pray together. Lord God, thank you very much for all the blessings that you never get tired of giving us. Even if we are not worthy of your love, you are still there to love us. Lord, we are humbly asking for forgiveness from You for all our sins, whether they are intentional or not – please forgive us. Cleanse our hearts and remove all the negative emotions that we hold. Lord, I lift my future to you. May you straighten the path that I am walking. Cause me to make wise, Godly choices for my life- choices that will honor You. Please be with me on my journey, Lord. You will serve as my guide and refuge. Lord, though I am a sinner, fragile in temptation and often my faith is weak, I pray that you will not let go of me, but hold me in your loving arms. Lord, we need you. Pour your love and forgiveness out to the world. Touch each one of us. Make each of us your instrument of love so that other people can know you. Give each of us enough wisdom to reveal your greatness to others. Dear Lord, we will not get tired of worshiping You. From the smallest to the greatest of your blessings, I will be in debt until my death. May the love that first came from you reign in the life of every child reading this prayer. Use us for your plans. Lord, I pray that You will stop this spreading disease – heal our land. This is causing huge damage to our families and communities. Please take care of us, Lord. You are our only hope and strength. Lord God, all the praise and thanksgiving are yours, in the name of JESUS, Amen. I love you Lord 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️

Think Big Sunday With Marsha

For those who have been following my blog you know I am a softie for picture quotes with positive messages. I’m always looking for new ways to express myself so I started an account on Twitter in 2011 and soon after I started my blog on this platform around 2015. My goal was to build an audience and grow my brand into a positive movement, to do that I needed to find an ecosystem to help me grow. Soon there after I ran across Marsha Wright’s profile and back then there were only a few (you can count on one hand) young black women in the entrepreneurial space and all of her posts were inspirational and educational, Marsha was way before her time. It was beautiful to see a black woman who is a CEO be so humble and kind on social media and she is a very giving person as well. On Sunday’s Ms Wright started an hashtag that allow writers like myself to be exposed to her 500K plus followers with positive posts and affirmations and the name of the hashtag is #ThinkBigSundayWithMarsha. The impact has been huge, I truly believe reading those positive quotes has changed how I look at the world and the people in it. Without a doubt Marsha’s generosity helped me grow my blog and my perspective where it is today and for that I am forever grateful. If you are on Twitter please follow Real Marsha Wright, you won’t be disappointed.
