To my grinders, my go getters, my hustlers, and hard workers. I respect everything your doing, I pray God’s best for you, and I know you’re going to prosper...
However, I can’t help but notice, and this is me looking at me, how often I get too busy to remember that other people exist. I legit am very focused on the success of my household. Like, I give a lot of energy, and I’m putting a lot of things together to get to my goals. But I would be lying to you if I didn’t tell how often lately I’ve been checked about my heart. Whether it be via the word, my Pastor, a mentor, or a friend. God has been like, “Humble yourself. Where is your giving? Did you see that person?” Now, I am not a mean person. I often ask how someone’s day is going or how it went, but am I really listening? And I do, I promise, but there has been a time or two when whatever you told me didn’t completely register, and I was just being polite. There is so much going on in the world. People are really hurting for so many reasons. Their a people who put their lives on the line for the safety of others, mothers who only got 2 hours of sleep last night, and have to get up to take care of their kids. Your little cousin might be going through something that he or she is afraid to open up about. I honestly don’t know, but I’m not afraid to check-in.
And not just a quick check-in either. A real one that may have me bending out a resource to help someone, or just listening and making sure that people don’t feel alone. I legit have plans to call all of my cousins this week. I love them. I think about a lot now that I’m older. Anyway, keep grinding and staying focused, but look up once in while. Your gifts and goals aren’t just for you.
