fueling my fire

“…you’ve lost your mind…”

no, no. i still have that in my possession, but i appreciate your concern.

“…you will never land a job…”

yes, yes. i will. in fact, i’ll land a {career}, but i appreciate your concern.

“…you won’t make good money…”

i plan on traveling a lot, and buying that dream car, and sending my mother random gifts when she least expects it, so, i will make sure i make “good money,” but i appreciate your concern.

“…your chances are slim to none…”

actually, everything in the entire universe is 50/50. it will either happen, or it will not, but i appreciate your concern.

“…you’re wasting your time…”

i am using my time. i am not squandering what i was blessed with, but, again, i appreciate your concern.

“…you need to loosen up…”

i just told you that i’m not wasting my time.

“…you’re weird…”

so, what you’re telling me is that i already stand out from the rest of the people you’re familiar with? good, then i’m doing something right.

“…you don’t know what you want, do you?”

you do not know what i want, therefore you cannot understand my choices.

“…good luck…”

i don’t remember asking for a fan base, but i appreciate your concern.



…let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen…

One thought on “fueling my fire

  1. My Dear….

    Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind (me) and reaching forward to those things which are ahead (of me). I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus!

    Not sure who, what, where and when you are referring to but life is a gift, press on my dear child….
