Sheldon Quick X Success
"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it" - Maya Angelou
I'm not making hella cash (yet) with my gift. But for the past two months and the few months I was on tour, all of my bills and needs have been supplied using my trumpet (alone). I like who I am. I like what I do. And (sometimes) I like the way I do it. I'm humbled by this. Much love and ✌🏾
Fatherhood Week 8:
#TBT Yep...guess who has #Throwback photos already? Lol
This is Legend at 4 weeks old peering into a brand new world of #dietary possibilities. He had been crying (as evidence in the tear trails on his face) when I opened the fridge...and as if nothing happened he stopped crying and just stared into the fridge.
I think our baby boy likes food!
He definitely likes his momma's milk!
We sometimes chuckle at his reaction to being fed and call him our little milk monster.
Can't wait to show him this picture two decades from now.
As I sit here and look at this picture on transformation Thursday I think to myself why am I like this? Why did I chose to eat so much to look like this and to feel like this?
Well the truth is I'm a stress eater anytime I fell stressed I eat. So my past Financhal situation made me this way. My passing of my g pa made me this way. My military job made me this way. Even though I love my kids dearly some times they stress me out. But you know what I can overcome this and I am.
I've started my journey yet it might be along one but I started and all this stresses have dwindled down to next to nothing. I've started from scratch to change my mindset to a positive one with less stress. I drink a shake too and eat right and it has helped battle my stress. I started to work out which in a big way has helped.
All it takes is to start to get better. It's not going to be easy at times but in the long run it will be worth it to better my self, to be there for my kids, to be there for my family and to be there for my job.
This picture represents my beginning but I will have a new picture in the middle of my journey. I blv there is never an end to your journey you will always be on a journey.
It's just up to you if you make it a positive one or negative one.
Does anyone else battle with this?
If so I want to hear from you either here in the comments or send me a DM. Lets talk and start to think positive!
p.s. Watch me transform. I won't be like this forever.
