Wheels Are In Motion

In about 30 to 45 days from today I will be a homeowner, and for some reason I’m not as excited as I think I should. In the next month I will be a 25 year old black man, who’ll have a steady paying job ($50,000 gross a year), with his own house and car and very independent but yet I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished that much. Are my standards set too high?

(BTW the sitaution with my Aunt work itself out.)



Go spend some time with people who don’t have an education, a job, a house, a car, Internet access, food to eat, a place to bath, clean clothes, or hope for the future and you may suddenly realize you have a great deal to be thankful for. I’m sure it’s not to hard to find such people either.

Some folks work a whole lifetime to get half as far as you’ve gotten.

You got more than me … what more is there? And you know how old I am

Congratulations! I think you should be proud of your achievement and now the greater challenge is to maintain and work your way up the ladder!

Considering what the world thinks about black men (locally and globally) you are another testement of success! Hard work, education and humility go a long way.

All the best.

I think you’re doing fine. Be thankful for what you have. The more you’re happy about what you have, the more things will fall in your lap when you least expect them. That’s what happened to me. Just live.
