Anyone who knows me and has known me for any extended length of time knows that I AM a true HUSTLE MAMA in EACH AND EVERY sense of the word. That is why it’s my brand. Those who have been afforded any glimpse into my real life behind the scenes have always made remarks like “Girl I don’t know how you do it” or “I know if I were you, I wouldn’t have half the calm you have,” or my favorite “How can you be so happy with so much going on?”. Well, let’s just say that my saving grace in the making all of what happens to me, and the more that I go through on top of that easy, is my inherent ignorance of the power of a ‘thing.’
You see, I am one who gives absolutely no consideration whatsoever to anything or ANYTHING that is not in alignment with the GOoD factor. If it’s not positive, forthright, just, honest, or any other characteristic in the LOVE VIBRATION of a thing, then I dismiss it from my consciousness immediately without a second thought!
And while those who are incapable of understanding what beat this drum (this heart) of mine is marching to could ever grasp the concept of mastering the skill of being utterly dismissive of all negative energies and interactions; I also find that those who get my rhythm still wrestle with that same degree of difficulty and lack of understanding when it comes to that skill set.
It is one that is developed over time, and not without the experience of being hurt by anything and EVERYTHING done to you first.
In any case, as I am going through the most intense transition and transformation I have ever been through in my life, I can tell you it is the one time I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOT BUTTER.
While I’ve planned, prayed, meditated, and ‘figured out’… there is nothing that could ever prepare the heart for pain, the conscience for betrayal, the mind for losing focus, the spirit for discomfort, the soul for loss, the finances for depletion, nor the body for lacking endurance when you have formerly been perceived (and rightfully so) as INVINCIBLE through it all.
Well, this time things are different… but then again I am different, as is the world and the people in it. The temperature levels of others operating as ‘functioning addicts’ living with the ‘numbing’ of their pain are at an all-time high, and the thirst and desire for those strong enough to take risks and live by faith are at an all-time low.
Despite the kinetics of it all, I still CHOOSE my fate and have control over my DESIGNED LIFE by continually reassuring myself that this race is not given to the swift but to the one who endures to the end. I have always thought of myself as not even being in a race, much to my advantage. I live a life SOLD OUT TO THE PROMISES OF MY SPIRIT and am convinced that as long as I maintain the accompaniment to my soul’s vibration… all of the OTHER THINGS of EVERYTHING will fall into place.
And while these past few days have taken their toll and I have had circumstances which have caused me to question a great deal, I am learning that the road to a destiny of greatness is paved with a terrain that most people NEVER have to contend with. So with every occurrence of the WHAT, I WOULD RATHER NOT HAVE TO GO THRU I AM made more confident and secure in the knowledge that this Hustle Mama will be one until the day she dies, and my life has the savor of flavor that I would never have any other way.
So while I can’t believe that it’s not butter these days on so many fronts, is what frequency I am living at the moment… I am well aware that I don’t even have to give it a second thought. ALL THINGS ARE PURPOSED, and even more is revealed with every surrender, every knowing, and all the confidence in the world that THIS AND YOU ARE ONE IN THE SAME.
