I Wanna Be A Pop Singer and a Rock Singer

So, I have come to the conclusion that I'm like the girl off of Coming to America when Prince Hakeem was going out on all of the dates. This is what she said:

"Yeah, I'm working in videos, but I really want to be my own star in the videos, because I want to become a pop singer and a rock singer, and I want to write my own songs, produce my own songs, then I'm gonna try to be an actress 'cause people tell me how talented I am, I'm a natural, stuff like that. So, then I'm going to write my own movies, direct my own movies, produce the movies I'm doing...

And then Hakeem and Semi fall asleep....

I've realized that I'm good at doing a lot of things, but there really isn't that one thing that I have a passion for. My husband loves basketball. He's loved it since he can remember. He played in college and professionally. Now he's a coach and he is so passionate that we have to have counseling sessions after every game about his behaivor (I call him Bobby Knight). My bff is a principal and she has a passion for education. She is on fire and will whoop somebody about some education. My mom is a social worker. She loves it. She works hard at it. She knew when she went back to school that that was EXACTLY what she wanted to do. They are all great at what they do. Now my sister cousin (most of you know who she is) she's like me, she wants to be a pop singer and a rock singer so this blog is dedicated to her today!

I feel like I am good at a lot of things, but just not GREAT at any of them. I have struggled with this for most of my adult life. So I embrace the idea that I just want to be a "rock singer and a pop singer" because no matter what I do, it has to be for the good of the Lord.

Psalm 37: 4-6 "Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun."

Be blessed
