Interdependents, today I just want share a little piece food for thought. I’m not sharing because I am somehow inferior to you all nor have I surpassed the lesson I am sharing, as I always sign off “as I minister to you I minister to myself” and with that being said we can begin analyzing 3 ways to mind our business.
1) Being Alone
Ever seen some drama escalate so quickly in a person’s life, Maybe a stranger in public and think “that’s their business let me not get involved” ? The first needed way to mind our own business is to become aware of it in the first place. There are things that have one in my life that are so big overload that I kind of just went on the other way mentally. The difference between the stranger and I is that I have to face me at some point why not now?
Ask yourself if your made aware of your flaws , gliches, and hang ups. While learning tonlove myself I have discovered that there are parts of me I need not accept but rather address. These things need to be addressed for many reasons and that is our business to mind. Things and events left hurt or maybe prenotions that could hinder the future and relationships both platonic and romantic and so forth and so on. Now I like to talk about me because I know about me. I have insecurities that I must deal with that stem from areas that may be painful to visit but know that I am I 21 year old adult it must be done. I don’t want generational curses or any other issue to travel to my children. I want to be a wife and a mother so I must still the grounds of my heart not just make myself pretty alone.
Our feelings,emotions,spirit whatever you want to call it /them are very powerful; and can hurt or heal. The law of conservative energy says that energy is neither created nor destroyed but merely transferred to other forms of energy. Because I use that example I’m going to call it energy. Oozez from us. Self discovery is bittersweet. We may not be delighted with every discovery Ye each discovery deserves attention.
The other day my sister jokingly said to me ” You think you look cute today huh girl?” And I replied ” I just put some clothes.” She said to me ” you’re supposed to say yeah whit.” and it stayed with me and I asked myself why i didn’t .. one might say I became aware.
2) Be Responsible
To be responsible for something or someone to be obligated to the said persons or things and are accountable for something in one’s power or have control of.
“I’m not much but im all I have.”
– Phillip K. Dick
“The only one obligated to you is you”
“Love yourself girl or nobody will.”
-Jermaine Lamar Cole
Of course as Life Goes On we’re going to multiply and Branch out and grow so we have more than just self but the quality all depends on self. Maybe some of you already have begun to Branch out inside business maybe you’re responsible for children. Being responsible for something when someone is not just on the ship it is obligation to sustain and maintain what one is responsible for. Maybe you’re like me and you’re not yet married and all without children. Maybe you are just getting your feet wet and aspire to do things like unto those.
” For thus sayeth the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem break up your fallow ground and so not among thorns”
– Jeremiah 4:3
Of course of course the scripture was written to the people to start over and grow passed their sin. Devotionally ( im pretty sure that’s not a word) we have that same responsibility for our grounds.
*Disclaimer : we have all fallen short and we know this. However, we also know that faith without works is considered dead. Which brings us to number three.
3. Love yourself for yourself
i quoted Jermaine Lamar Cole or as we know him, J. Cole because I wanted to analyze his famous Line “Love yourself girl or nobody will” it became a lot of girl’s favorite picture caption but lets take the word girl out of the equation for a second and realize that every man woman boy and girl should know that self love is more than accepting things about ourselves to feel alright. There’s nothing wrong with accepting ourselves but we should also tend to our needs. Tough love is love indeed and sometimes even in self love is needed.
“Check the person in the mirror before the mirror checks you”
The word is a mirror that will always show us so many parts of us, let us not shy away from its praises nor it’s harsh realities.
