There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can’t forget about them. I love animals more than I love most humans I run into, lol.
I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Though there are times when we can’t just cut out the negative people, but we can try to not let it affect us. Just let it go in one ear and out the other. It’s a skill you have to learn, lol.
The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets not abuse it.
World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if every child, woman and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn’t you agree?
Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I’m down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn’t know what I would do without it.
Right now, in this chapter in my life, I believe I am on a new venture. These past couple of years I’ve learned so much. I think reaching my 30’s has been much of a wake up call. I mean this with every aspect in my life. There comes a point in your life when you are just SURE. Sure of yourself, your life, and what you inspire to be. The dreams become more of a reality because now you know it is possible. I believe in fate, but I also believe we can help it along the way. Don’t just lie down and have your life written for you, write what you want. We’ve been given the gift of life. I know some lives are easier than others. We all go through trails and tribulation. But it’s still our life, and things can change. You just have to believe in yourself. Because without that…you really have nothing.
One day at work, I was sitting there. All the sudden, a light bulb went on. Is this what I really wanna do? Wake up to an alarm clock everyday? Race to the time clock every morning? I mean if you love your job, that’s great. But for me, there really isn’t any job I would love enough to punch in for the rest of my life. I needed a change. I just didn’t know what. One day a friend of mine told me about a business he got into. Sounded good, made sense. But I am very skeptical. Before I get into anything…research has to be done. I did so, for months. Then one day, I took that huge leap of faith. A year later, my business has gone up, and gone down. But who said success was easy? Or that it happens overnight? If it’s something you believe in, you won’t give up, no matter what. If your heart is in it, that’s all you need. Along the way I’ve discovered a lot of other things. Opportunities that I never even knew existed. Like online marketing, affiliate marketing, or that a blog can build you an empire. Who would have thought that this is something I would be doing.
We’re all taught the same things growing up. Go to school, study hard. Find a good paying job and retire with good benefits. For some people that works, and hey, maybe I’ll run into a job I love so much that I will be content with just that. Between you and me, I highly doubt that lol. Entrepreneurship… that inspires me just typing it! And that my friends, tells me this is it for me.
Success comes in all forms. A person who is content and happy with their life is successful. A person who has watched their kids grow up to be wonderful people are successful. So you see, it’s really all about happiness. That’s what we all want. For ourselves and for the people around us. I mean how can you really be happy if the people around you are miserable? Let’s help each other, grow together, laugh and love together.
Well that’s the basics of me. You’ll see blog posts probably on just about everything. From business to inspiring thoughts and much, much more. Thanks for taking the time to know me.
Leading the way together…
Time for an update~
Well…how things have changed. What I wanted then…isn’t what I want now. Who I am hasn’t changed. My core is still my core. But life, life has changed. With every passing year I discover something new. Age can do wonders for the mind and heart. It’s a new chapter. I started this blog in 2011 with a completely different goal. It was the beginning of a new stage in my life. And now, it’s done. A new me is emerging. I’ll be 35 in a couple of months. Why am I not surprised that a new cycle is starting. Since I can remember…I’ve always taken care of everyone else. I sacrifice myself for others. I realize that’s just who I am. But now, I have to start putting myself first. People like me, whose mission in life is serving others… we eventually burn out. And then what? How much good are we really when it gets to that point? I’m redirecting the sails. It’s time I start truly pursuing what my heart desires. To be honest, I can’t really even say exactly what it is. I guess I’m rediscovering myself again. Another new stage 🙂 The beauty of this all…I’ve gone through many storms and prevailed every time. I’m emerging as a stronger, more confident woman who knows now, that there really are no limits. I can do whatever the fuck I want. So…lets see where the universe takes me. No more four-year cycles. I’ll be back to update (About Roacilynn)……..who knows when. All I know is, we only have one life, so lets live our best life. RIGHT NOW.
