Almost Over

Advertisements

Soon this random blog will be over. I have “chosen” NOT to renew my subscription. Mostly because I don’t have the finances to do so. I’ve read that 99% of “business’s” fail anyway. So apparently I fall into that percentile. This sucks, because I really enjoyed crafting.

I know I wrote about being positive, but there’s a difference between bein naïve, and staying positive. That difference is being truthful to yourself. I’m not meant for greatness, or even slightly being successful. Reminds me of the old saying ” you can’t have your cake and eat it too” something to that effect. To be honest I wasn’t looking for greatness. I knew in reality what I was trying to do would have NEVER turned into a franchise, or become a (million) dollar type of business. But I was hoping for some type of success. Anyway it is what it is, and it ain’t what it ain’t.

As I mentioned earlier that there’s a difference between reality and being naïve. Naïve is showing a lack of experience, wisdom, or judgment. Reality is the world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. So I am now living in reality. I always have lived in the cruel world of reality. It’s not a bad place to live, just sometimes a little harsh. When some of your hopes and dreams get crushed. Often times it’s the slow crush that hurts the most as you feel every bit of the pain of defeat. Then you pick yourself up, realign yourself and find the next failure. Now don’t think I go into my ventures with the mindset of it’s going to be a failure, no I go into it whole heartedly believing and thinking THIS IS IT! I have such enthusiasm and excitement. UNTIL, the inevitable. It’s quite depressing. Thank goodness I’m not speaking out loud about this, because I would be in tears.

The funny thing about this is you are always coming accross the “success” stories. Right? How they grew up poor, didn’t have this or that but they worked hard and became successful. You can’t say it’s not true because you wasn’t there when they was struggling. However thd reality IS if you want to have or start a business you HAVE to have some kind of business sense. You have to have business idea, and plan, AND you have to have finances in order to do anything. You hear how they worked 3 jobs went to school raised their children as a single parent blah blah blah. I know I sound like an angry loser, believe you me I am not that angry loser. I just cannot believe ALL of their story. I was a single mom working 2 jobs, and no matter how small I cut the corners I was still LITERALLY JUST surviving. We lived on bare necessities.

Ok, ok enough of venting. Moving on. As stated this wordpress venture will be over soon. I just hope I’ve helped someone in a positive way. So heres my my links because y’all know I can’t leave without posting I laugh to keep from crying.

Just a few of the craft items I have made

Update: Random Memory

I have tried to follow many others in this journey. At first the app let me follow, now every time I try to follow it says something went wrong, or can not follow. I don’t know what it means, I’ll just assume it’s another road block. After all I am the queen of at least the things.

  1. Getting lost
  2. Finding road blocks
  3. And failing

I started to list number 3 as not winning. But the truth is I am winning! Winning at losing. So on the bright side…busts out into to the song I’m winning

One day I was on the ground
When I needed a hand
And it couldn’t be found
I was so far down
That I couldn’t get up
You know and
One day I was one of life’s losers
Even my friends were my accusers
And in my head
I’d lost before I’d begun I had a dream
But it turned to dust
And what I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style
When the walls fell in
When I played my hand
I looked like a joker
Turned around
Fate must have woke her
‘Cause lady luck
She was waiting outside the doorI’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
And I don’t intend on losing again Too bad it belonged to me
It was the wrong time
And not meant to be
Took a long time
And I knew for now
I can see the day
That I breathe for
Friends agree, there’s a need
To play the game
And to win againI’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
And I don’t intend on losing againI had a dream
But it turned to dust
What I thought was love
That must have been lust
I was living in style
When the walls fell in
When I played my hand
I looked like a joker
Turned around
Fate must have woke her
‘Cause lady luck
She was waiting outside the doorI’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
I’m winning
And I don’t intend on losing again
