There are times in our lives when we just know something. We don't know what it is, but for some reason we can feel it. When this happens to me, I believe it's God's way of trying to tell, warn, or prepare me for something that's going to happen. This feeling can be scary. However, it's necessary for us to maintain our strength and prepare for the unexpected. Vibes, body language, change in attitude from people around us can all contribute to these emotions. I can always sense when something is wrong just by the way someone looks, acts, or responds to me. I'm no psychic but I do have strong intuition. It's this strong emotion that protects me from negativity. Sometimes there's nothing you can do to change what's going to happen. As my dad says, "You have to adapt to every situation and adjust." I couldn't agree more.
I know it's been a while since I shared my creative path with you. Let's see, I've been investigating potholes, broken sidewalks, reflecting (which I always do), and teaching. Things have been good, with the exception of an achy hip--some things don't change! Otherwise, I am staying positive and trying to promote myself in a way I didn't think possible. Between this blog, my You Tube channel, Twitter, and networking, it's helping me stay focused on my dreams. Classes are going well, my students are impressing me each time I enter the classroom. Their passion for learning and trying to live their American dream is wonderful. That's something I don't think an administrator will see. As a teacher, I am blessed to experience their journey.
But one thing I am noticing is the change in vibes from (some) people around me. Sometimes I feel there's a hidden plot out against me. This is a reality. When you know at some point you are going to have to stand up against the masses, preparation is key.
I believe, more now than ever, that when you are true to yourself, no one can take anything away from you. It doesn't matter what power they have. You can only be you. I will continue to stand tall no matter what negative vibes that's thrown at me.
So here's a suggestion. Let's play this game of uncertainly. I'm ready, are you?
