My day began at 5 a.m., I woke up and fed the dog, the cat, the fish and the hermit crabs, yes we have all of them. I popped in two cookies n cream pop-tarts and sat down and read four pages of my good friend, Dr. Coyte Cooper PhD.’s book IMPRESSIONS. I then took the dog outside before heading into work at 7 a.m.
During the day, I delivered material by hand because the loader that I use is currently down. After lunch, I helped a co worker deliver material to another location. At 5 p.m. I returned home, feed all of out pets, took a shower and climbed back into my Jimmy. This time, to head to my second job as a new evening custodian for a local high school.
I arrived at 6 p.m. and spent the next four hours sweeping, mopping and driving a scrubber to clean the floors from one end to another. The scrubber allows you to stand on it and drive it almost like a car as your clean the floors. As I stood and rode, steering my way through the school, my back began to ache and reminding me of the manual deliveries I had taken today.
But that is when my entire purpose rose up and the grind sat in. See, this job will fund my writing and nothing else, I’m not there because I have to be, I am there because I want a future for myself! Money that will go into a savings account and draw interest for making sure that my work is noticed and grows!!
It is now 12 a.m. and I am heading to bed. I worked 4 hours and earned $50.00 and that is 50 that will go to my future that I did not have this morning. Part of getting what we want out of life is knowing that we have to sweat for it. To make ourselves tired and weary to make it happen is what MUST take place in order for success to be achieved! As I wish ou a wonderful Thursday ahead, make today the day you work towards that goal or goals you have for yourself! Live With Passion and make it happen!
