Everyday gives a new start

I've always viewed life from the sidelines,
Just watching it pass me by,
In the past too afraid to just let go and live,
And lately too tired to try.

https://www.justychidd.com/2018/06/let-life-race-you-out-your-fears.html
I've envied the people around me,
So invested in living each day,
While I spent my time hiding out from the world,
And searching for ways to escape. In love but no leg

For most of my life, I truly believed,
I was here to help somebody else,
But now it's so clear it was just an excuse.
To avoid living life for myself.  Love is an action word

It's sad that our lives and the pain we endure,
Can weaken our strength to move on,
But if we get lost in the scars of our past,
Without knowing our lives will be gone.
Advice to my younger self
Its true people are disappointing,
They can turn in the blink of an eye,
But we can't avoid hurting each other,
When we all want a chance at this life. 

But there's something I've learned through the wisdom of age,
The truth about all of our lives,
And that is no matter what path we each take,
In the end, we just want to survive. 

So the time has now come to conquer your fears,
And to stand up and face a new day,
Let the hurts of your past wash away with your tears,
And stop letting your life slip away.

To -Do-list Tips

Unable to focus & get things done? Always Forgetful?

 Here are a few things I do when I find myself unable to concentrate or focus during the day or forgetful and to boost my overall productivity and performance and ensure I am checking off the important tasks on my to-do list.   letting go

One thing I have learned about myself is that I forget a lot even to a fault if I should add but am working on it, in fact, that is why I always carry a small dairy everywhere. ...

I write down all the things am supposed to do that day and then I do it. dad

 1. I make sure I do one task at a time and finish it before I embark on a new one.

2. I have a priority list which I stick to, I eliminate all distractions and only have things open or around me that will contribute to me completing the task I am working on. https://www.justychidd.com/2018/06/let-life-race-you-out-your-fears.html

MUTE (Here is a story)

A makeup artist whose sole means of communication is only through written words goes by the name Melissa, 
She is a natural entrepreneur who possesses what Joe Robinson says are the seven traits of successful entrepreneurs: tenacity, passion, tolerance of ambiguity, vision, self-belief, flexibility and defying conventional wisdom.


The simplest way to describe a black woman is that she is a complex and intricate being. 
She is light brownish in complexion, curvy, tall with curly hair, she is beautiful regardless. 


She had a sculpted figure. A pair of arched eyebrows looked down on sweeping eyelashes. 
Her delicate ears framed a button nose. A set of dazzling, angel-white teeth gleamed as she blew gently on her carmine-red fingernails.
 Her enticing, constellation-blue eyes that gaze and her puffy, heart-shaped lips.
A Love Story difference

She was on her way to the ho
