Doing All The Right Things But...
Have you ever just felt like no matter what (good) you do, it's just never enough? Ever crossed your T's and dotted your I's and something didn't add up? Have you ever done all the right things, all that you were supposed to do, go the extra mile and STILL come up short?
Well, that's been my life for the past few weeks. I feel like no matter what I do, I can never win. I went to college like I was supposed to. Got a job, any job, like I was supposed to. I continue to do what's right and stick by my morals like I was taught. I don't do anything (bad) to anyone. All I do is stay black and pay my taxes.
I know I've done some things but that's the old me. Word to Kanye. We've all done things. But at the end of the day, I'm a good person damn it! Why me?
This is the part where I probably should say something inspirational for both you and myself. This is where I should know exactly what to say. This is where I should be giving (unsolicited) advice on these type of situations. But all I can think of is the ever popular phrase "let go and let God." I know it sounds cliche, but in cases like these, I believe that is all you can do.
When we're faced with situations such as these where we know we're doing what's right, it's best to leave it to a higher power. Because honestly, what is there left to do? I know there are times when I believe the saying "nice guys finish last" and think maybe I should do something ... Er... Different. But I remember that good always prevails. You can never go wrong doing right.
Though this is a tough position to be in, trust that God (or the Universe) is working in your favor. Be mindful and responsible for the energy your putting out. Know that all your good will pay off in the end if you believe.
Our time will come and we shall be blessed ten times over.
Peace & Light
