This past weekend was my mother’s Surprise 60th birthday celebration and it was an amazing thing to see Black Family Love. I can’t describe the feeling but having people you haven’t seen for years reconnect with you is a great feeling. I wouldn’t be the Man I am today without the lady in the middle and my brothers on the left and right. They have shaped me to become the best I aim to be. They may not know it but they all inspire me because their work ethic is kind of amazing. People always ask how I keep so many jobs and continue to do what I do its because of them. They showed me the way I just took it and ran with it. My brothers always are there for me as well as my mother, no matter what. Even when I didn’t believe in myself they did and there’s no way to express my gratitude to them. Everything I do to this day is not only for me but it is for them.

This past weekend has felt like a roller coaster ride. I had a fluctuation of emotions from extreme happiness, sadness, shock, to anger all within three days. I realize now, sitting in this room in the dark that I needed this reality check. At first, I looked at it as if I had failed but that is far from the truth. Now its time to actually use my skill set and get what I want. I must say these past few months I have been coasting slacking, depending on others to help motivate me. I had every excuse in the book why i couldn’t do a project or how much time I needed or even my ex-partner not being able to help me. The list goes on but what it really comes down to is me doing what I have to get what I want. I have to be better than what I am. I just have to. I have nothing to lose. I have received my wake up call to the Real World. So instead of sitting here sulking in emotions and staying in bed cursing about whats right or whats wrong I need to ht the grind. I talk a lot about grind but now its time to live by it. As a Reel Rebel there is no space for slacking or excuses. If i think it then its DONE. That’s it. I can’t wait no more for anyone. I gotta DO FOR ME.
