I Believe I Can Fly! Can You?

When Space Jam came to the theaters in 1996 in went to the theaters with some friends to see it. I really enjoyed the movie, but what inspired me was the song, I Believe I Can Fly. For the first time I felt like I could do anything I wanted as long as I put my mind to it.

Monsters Can Come In Our Life

Did you ever have a goal to accomplish and all of a sudden everything goes wrong. It makes me think of the “monster under the bed” that always steals your socks. Well if things go wrong do not let it get you down, let it push you to try harder and learn to do greater.

When I was trying to start a business I had problems keeping thing organized, scheduled, prioritized, and getting it done. I learned it is always better to write things down and schedule events on your calendar. I use Google for everything. I have my personal and business scheduled with notifications as far as a week, even some a month ahead. When I started to get more organized the monsters seemed to go away. I took control!

Growth With Optimism, Decline With Negativity

We all need to be in a positive environment. The more positivity you are around the more you will grow. If we are in a negative environment then we will decline. We want to grow and be strong because then our soul will fly.

I am going tell you in two situations I have been in my life. I am going to start with the good one first.

Positive Environment

It was about eleven years ago I got a job at a casual dinning restaurant. I had a lot of experience so I applied for manager. The General Manager and the Area Manager interviewed me and I was hired. There was one condition though. I would not be hired on as a manager, but I would be trained to be a manager in the future. When I walked in that was what I wanted at least so I took it. They even paid me a dollar an hour more than a regular hire. I was there for two years and I was promoted to management. I was in training for about six months until I was officially promoted. Now there is a down side. Going into my fourth year they opened a new restaurant and my General Manager was transferred to that restaurant. The Assistant Manager was promoted to General Manager. I never did get along with her well and I did not think she wanted me as manager. She scheduled me for opening, which I did not do for almost a year. I did not do well. I didn’t get to the bank on time, scheduled breaks late, and had employees complaining because I did not help them open. I got demoted a few weeks later and decided to move on. I applied for a job that a friend of mine had. It wasn’t the best job, but a great paycheck. I really liked the job and did not want to leave, but there are signs in life that something comes to an end. That is what I believe happened. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Negative Enviroment

This is going to be hard cause it has been growing for a long time. It was seven years ago I started a job working nights. That was not bad for me, it actually helped. It was bad because at that time I was living with my mother and step-father. When I was hired I told them what my shift was and that I had to sleep during the day. They accepted it, but it didn’t go well. I was also attending college online. I would do a discussion before work and one on last break. This helped because I had to do three discussions a week. It freed a little time to do research on my days off.

When I was at home they talked way too much and had the TV blaring. I tried being back in my room but I could still hear them. I finally decided to pop in my ear phones, crank them up and put my “head into the books”.  It worked! It would get them a little upset because when my mother would be calling for dinner I did not hear her. I told her multiple times come up to me and tap me or wave to get my attention. She could not understand why I had the earphones in. I told her, “Either you two keep quiet and keep the TV down or I wear my earphones.” Things got worse over the years. My step-dad did the chores before I was able to. I would get up around 3 pm and he got home around 3:15 pm. He would come in and take out the trash and the garbage or go get wood in for the heat, and I did not notice it because I was studying and just got up. I had my studies in one hand and coffee in another. When he got back he would say, “I did all your chores for you.” or “Since you wouldn’t do it I did.” or “Well somebody had to get it done.”. I liked the first one to begin with until he became persistent. He then began to complain why I never did anything. Eventually about three or four years ago I stopped doing anything unless I was asked. I felt like I was no longer needed or wanted. When I lost my job it got worse because they would complain about me not being able to pay my bills. It was none of their business. The thought of suicide even crossed my mind. I was in therapy for two years until this week which was my last session. Losing my job, my business, and no support from family pushed me over the edge. Today I am independent, employed, have a Jeep Cherokee, and a nice apartment. I may have fallen big time a few years ago, but I say I gained a few steps. We all need to learn from our mistakes and from the mistakes of others.

Closure

If you are wondering where I am going with this I will tell you. There are good and bad times in all our lives, but we cannot give up. We must all have faith. If you believe in what you want and you believe it is meant for you then in time you will achieve it. I may not have my business now, but I do believe one day I will have what God intends me to have to fly.

Rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Chuck Berry dies at 90

Chuck Berry died at age 90 on Saturday. Known as the father of rock and roll, his hits included ‘Johnny B. Goode,’ ‘Roll Over Beethoven’ and ‘Maybellene.’

I saw this on the news last night and I have to share it. Chuck Berry the father of rock ‘n roll is dead. He was a man that gave us the music we have today. So much have music has come from rock ‘n roll he is a legend.

I remember watching Back to the Future when I was a child and hearing and the great musing in the movie. One song I really like is Johnny Be Goode. It was funny that that Marty McFly was the one to inspire Chuck Berry. He will be missed a lot. Thanks Chuck Berry for all the music you gave us. It helps our soul. RIP.
