I began this post a few months ago and didn't finish. I can't even remember why, but I saw it tonight and wanted to make sure that I complete it tonight!
A few months ago, I needed help from a few of my friends. They all came through in CLUTCH situations. I mean, they saved my hide...well the SMG hide! For real! As a business owner, I take great pride in the work done and services rendered. As many of you know, getting the business of people you know is sometimes the hardest thing to do. So, when I was called upon to provide a service, I was honored and nervous.
Nothing went wrong the day of service but when I got home...when I got home...I fired myself! Because there was no one else to hire, I had to jump back in and do some hard work! Majority of what I needed to do was foreign to me so I asked my friends for help! Whaddayaknow...they came through!
I didn't take their help for granted and let them know how grateful I was and reflecting on it again, I still don't know how I ended up with such great friends!
One of my best friends in the media field constantly shoots me good information. In fact, she told me to do this...well, some of it. If I ever get courageous enough to do it, I'll finally do what she has been urging me to do forever! But, on our side of the velvet rope, you discover that relationships last as long as assignments and are sometimes only as good as your placement on the carpet.
I'm grateful for my friends in business, music and media! I never take them for granted and I'm encouraged by their willingness to help me...especially in the middle of a crisis! Boy, was I in a meltdown! I have a number of amazing people in my life that have blessed me, my family and my business tremendously, but in this particular instance, these three people kept me afloat!
Thomas Robinson did some amazing photo editing that helped me stay in the city! Not joking, I made some rookie mistakes that...just, ugh!
My website was down and Antwon James and Denisha Delane let me cry on their shoulders and walked me through every possible solution we could try. It took nearly three weeks but we got it together and the website was recovered. Another boneheaded mistake by yours truly.
They didn't have to help me, but they did and I'm telling you all about them!!! I hope you have amazing people in your life as well. If not, pray and ask God to release helpers to you! You can start by being one!
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Yep, I Said It!
When I have something to say, I often say it. Many times, I try to find the best way to say it. Other times, there's just no easy way to say a hard thing. My journey in life has made me a person with much to say and the person people least want to hear it from.
