What Are You Waiting For?

Preacher Dude

            Every day I have a friend who comes to me in confidence, hoping to get some really good advice. One, I think what really grinds my gears is that no matter how much you tell a person a great way out or a logical answer to their situation, none of my friends take my advice. Then the problem gets worst and they say, "I wish I would've listen to you Mali." What can I say but that I told you so! My question is what are you waiting for? If you want a change why wait? There are plenty of things in my life that are not perfect; I'm away from my son most of the year because he lives in Boston; I don't get along with his mom; I don't have a real job; I'm 24 and I'm still in undergrad; I feel alone. It gets hard knowing who is really around to be a friend or just a spectator. Do you know what I say? I say so what! I'm working hard to be a better man.

               It's all about having a plan. Life has never been easy and I know I don't want to go back to the dark place where I used to be. So throughout the last 3 years I had to see how I can make my negative to a positive. I had to understand that I'm not a bad dad just because I'm in school trying to get education to better support my son; I don't have to be best friends with my co-parent but I have to be a man and support her because she is raising my son and doing the best that she can without the help of my presence (my money doesn't count), and as for my friends and loneliness I have to remember that I'm blessed because once all of the extra people in my life faded away I have been able to work harder and focus on my goals for the future. I want to encourage you all as my readers to stop waiting on the right answer or the right time, and take the incentive to change your situation, because at the end of the day all you have is you!

               Listen y'all: I love y'all so much, and remember when you're reading my column keep on your mature hates because I revealed my heart to you, and I trust that you will spread the love that I have for you throughout campus. I LOVE Y'ALL, and even if I don't know you I love you with the love of GOD.

 

 

Psalms 130:7

 

"O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. "

 

 

Peace and Bowties,
