I’ve always wanted to go see Justin Timberlake in concert, he is my secret boyfriend after all.
I even went a few years back and tried to get tickets but those bitches were sold out as soon as they went on sale.
I was defeated when this happened because I had it all planned out and then we couldn’t even get tickets. I seriously went into a depression after that for a little bit and it took me a while to recover but here I am.
Ha ha ha
Ok maybe that’s a little dramatic but I was disappointed and it did hurt my heart a little.
Fast forward to 2019, and while taking my daughter to school we hear that that Mr. Sexy pants is going to be back in Ohio.
She’s like mom you should totally go to that concert while dad and I are gone in Florida.
At first I’m like ignoring her, and then I’m like wait a minute, your right I do need to do this.
And so on Sunday night we went to see this little hottie, and he did not disappoint.
I can’t tell you how many years I put myself on hold just so I could support my husband and his dreams, his career, his education and all of his endeavors.
I’m not the least bit bitter about this because that’s what women do. They sacrifice their own lives to raise a family and to keep everyone happy.
Women have a shit ton more work on the emotional side of caring for others needs and keeping things running smoothly for their entire families.
In general women have been taught that their dreams are not as important as the man’s. They’ve inherited generations of dysfunction from their grandmothers, their mothers, and the aunts that came before them, and when they get married they get the pleasure of inheriting yet another set of unrealistic expectations from someone else’s family.
But sometimes women wake up and they say no this isn’t going to work for my family and I.
I’m not ok with mediocre love and I’m sure as hell not ok with settling when I only get this one miraculous chance at living.
When you know better you do better. Now I’m beyond blessed even in the middle of the mess because I’m teaching my daughter what self love looks like.
I’m letting her know that she can’t pour from an empty cup and that we aren’t here to make anyone else happy.
Happiness is an inside job and everyone’s responsible for their own happy.
Theres a new generation of women on the rise. It doesn’t matter what their age is because this isn’t based on numbers. Instead these ladies speak truth to bullshit but do it eloquently at all ages.
These ladies know that guilt is a wasted energy and they don’t fuck around with it ever.
These women aren’t jealous and insecure and they never ever talk bad about their friends. They build each other up.
They don’t make themselves small to make other people happy because they know that being different is their gift.
These ladies are wholehearted and your negative opinions don’t hold a card to the bright lights that they choose to shine even during the darkest of times.
We are strong
We are brave
We are light seekers
We are truth tellers
We never put ourselves last
We have boundaries like a mother fucker
And we never apologize for being ourselves
I couldn’t be more excited for my new life, the one where I learn as much from her as she does from me.
Love you all
I’m still plugging away at my book and I’m still toothless at my moms but stay tuned for new updates 💜
Thanks for reading my blog and supporting my dreams
Peace God Bless
