Being born with a birth defect(cleft lip and palate) weighing only 3 pounds and 9oz, blind in one eye, I’ve always knew how to adapt. I was humbled at the age of 4 when I looked in the mirror and realized that I was different. You laughed at me because I was different and I laughed at you because you all are the same. I never gave up, I kept pushing through, even after being bullied through elementary and high school. You do not have a disability because the biggest disability is one who has a negative mindset and if you hang around me long enough you will find that I don’t allow that energy. We adapt to our circumstances and we move forward.
A couple weeks ago I had to step out of my comfort zone to cook for about 20 strangers.
It was my grandson’s Quincy’s birthday and I was nominated to cook on the grill the night before.
Aww man, my anxiety was on overload but I had to step up and flex my skills on the grill for those fine folks.
I am a control freak, I like to play out different scenarios in my mind before attempting the task at hand, what if I undercook this meat? what if I over-season the meat?
Needless to say I was a nervous wreck.
That morning I got up and helped my daughter Tia season the chicken and pork, I paid close attention to detail and I was very satisfied with the results.
When we arrived at the party location I set up the grill and waited until the coals were white.
I don’t know if it was the grill or charcoals but this grill was extra hot and it was no joke!
I placed the first batch of pork on the grill and it was cooking at a high rate and I began to get concerned.
Ya boy was flipping that pork like a acrobat, making sure they wouldn’t turn into a piece of charcoal itself.
My daughter was my helper but she had to run to the store to get bags of ice and I didn’t know where the bbq sauce was so I had to improvise and take the pork off the grill and place the chicken on there to start its process.
Somehow it worked, I didn’t over cook the pork or chicken, my daughter made it back and handed over the bbq sauce so I finished the process of spreading sauce over the meats and completing the task at hand.
I received compliments and everyone was happy, overall the party was a success and I am now motivated to try a similar event again, wish me luck!
When you create, you are closer to God.
I am noticing a shift around me.
It’s like an awakening happening right before our very own eyes.
I want to thank you all personally for following my blog.
2018 was the rebirth of my creative mind, I truly love this process.
Like Michael Jackson use to say…you ain’t seen nothing yet #HappyNewYear
I know it’s rough out there but you can never give up.
It’s a tug of war, vision vs pain.
Pain is a huge adversary but the vision is the Incredible Hulk!
Smash all doubt,crush all of the negativity, and only focus on the victories.
Use that “victory” emotion to fuel your dreams, visualize those victories as if they have already been won!
Thank you in advance,I am truly grateful💯
When I look into your eyes everything else disappears.
The chemistry between us equals to 100 years.
The trust and love we have between us means,no fear.
You bring out the best in me,I always need you next to me.
You are my destiny,my prayers were answered instantly,when I looked into your eyes…
