A Letter To A Friend

Dear, —— —–

You really can’t change people. They have to want to change themselves.

Sadly, a lot of people don’t see anything wrong with how they treat others around them – their brothers, sisters, Children…Let me help you. YOU ARE DRIVING THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE AWAY FROM YOU. It behooves me that some people don’t notice this. How can you not see that there are more arguments than laughs? More tears of sorrow than joy? Please, open your eyes. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. Family isn’t like that. Families love, nourish, and lift up one another. This is how I was raised. You love your family and treat them right because at the end of the day, they’re the only ones who will be there. But if you steady drive them away because you think there’s nothing wrong with you and make yourself the victim, you’ll end up with no one. And for some people I know, time is running out…

I Thank God for my family and The love He’s bestowed within it. I have two strong Christ centered parents. And they are FORREAL about their faith. I admire them. And that’s how it should be. I want to take care of them when the time comes. Peers I have sadly don’t say the same.
“She treats me like crap now. Why would I ever want to help her later when she hasn’t been a Mother to me? She looks at me more as a friend than a daughter… The part that hurts the most is that I can’t get to her. She doesn’t listen. And when she chooses to, she victimizes herself..I don’t know what to do.”
This was spoken to me by a dear friend recently and it hurt me. Deeply. My heart goes out to this young lady and her mom. If you’re religious, please don’t hesitate to shoot up a prayer for their situation. Pray that someone opens their mind and realize that it’s time to change for the better and be real about it.

Hopefully this doesn’t just fly over your head when you see this. Truly Analyze how you treat your loved ones. Don’t just read this blog post and think, “He has a point and hopefully this reaches the right person,” cause chances are, YOU are that person.
I love you and I’m praying for you.

Love P


Try Hard

TRY HARD!   Yep.

OVERACHIEVER!   That’s me.

Oh, look out! Here he is!  Coming through.

If you have ever had one of these phrases shouted at your direction, congratulations. You’ve earned your way into the Class of the Elite (sounds so official). No matter what area of life you’re in, there’s going to be a class of lowers (notice the lowercase title) that mock your hard work and dedication. And personally, this is the best motivation/complement you could ever receive.

Knowing that my grind creates a rouse in others is so rewarding! I get so enthused about it!

Having sly, sarcastic comments uttered at me during track practice helps create a sense of confirmation to my REASON. My “Why”.  There has to be a reason behind the madness. No sane person would just go out and bust their behind running for no reason. Most likely, a goal is in the sights. And catching wind of the shade being thrown by my own teammates just fuels the fire within! Nothing’s better than proving your doubters wrong after a big feat. It’s just icing on top of the cake.

One of my favorite quotes in relation to this topic originate from, former British prime minister, Winston Churchill, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

So keep working hard. There are going to be some sappy socialist at your place of work, school, or any other venue. They’re the ones standing in a group in the back laughing, and making fun of your hustle. They’ll probably call you everything in the book. But understand that while they’re wasting hot air, you are putting in good old-fashioned hard work.

Make it , so that they can call you everything but a loser.



My charger dumped me.

I cannot believe what is going on here. After all that has transpired, you still managed to reach through my chest, grip my heart, and yank it out while it beats in your grasp. I trusted you… More than any other and you failed me. And the thing that hurts the most is that the lady that I bought you from said that you’d charge my beloved iPhone quicker! Lies. All lies!! You lasted 3 weeks you piece of junk! Get out!

Let’s talk for a minute. I know many of you have felt the same pain that I’m currently experiencing. When you spend good money on a charger, you’d expect your investment to be worth while. This is simply not the case when it comes to certain chargers, and it hurts my heart. Instead of giving you long term satisfaction, you receive a short lived excuse of a phone charger. The worst part is that I have to wrap my charger around the top of my phone to make some type of progress! You know how sketchy that is? The answer is Extra. Extra Sketchy.

I joined team Apple expecting a prosperous go at life and so far it has been a bittersweet journey! I love the phone; I hate the charger. I was hoping that the chargers from Apple would trump over Android with ease, but instead, I have been failed just as equally. Luckily, I have a loving mother willing to buy the really good expensive chargers from at&t. Thanks mom!image.jpeg

iPhone. A+

I Don’t Like This

This is my alarm clock. See that dirt mound in the distance? Look to the right. Yep there it is. That freaking tractor!! This thing – along with unnecessary clanging, rumbles, and guys yelling at each other – persists on waking me up at 6 am sharp!  I don’t have to be at school until 9:20, so that leaves me with with two and a half hours of unwanted consciousness.
