I’m not a poet, far from it. So, this little poem is not “poetically” correct but it’s how I felt at the time I was reminiscing on how far I’ve come since my mid-life crisis. It’s been a long journey in regaining the Over 40 & Killing it® Lifestyle. I’ve made it! I styled and wrote my way to success in 365 days. Success doesn’t happen overnight.
I am still sauntering down the streets of success, it’s never-ending. I do stop from time to time, to absorb all the beautiful things around me and to give thanks for all I have.
The greatest feeling is living in this new chapter of my life without the frienemies and jealous individuals I befriended during my mid-life crisis.
I can’t blame them for my demise, that was all me. However, I do thank them for their envious behavior, their empty dreams and their no ambition attitude. That was the driving force that catapulted me into aggressively going after my dreams and becoming a Jeans & a Tee, CEO of Over 40 & Killing it®.
Sometimes before I go to bed I think about the past couple of years and all I can do is shake my head at what I’ve been through and the people I encountered.
I haven’t spoken to any of my mid-life crisis frienemies but from time to time I get a glimpse into some of their lives via Facebook. They are just as I left them but older with sad souls.
They are doing the same things, living the same unproductive lifestyle and wasting money they don’t have just as they were 7 years ago when I first met them.
It’s sad a couple of them had true potential to achieve so much more than what they settled for. And with that being said…I wrote this poem on December 31, 2014, while reminiscing about years past, in honor of my frienemies!
What do I have that you want
I’m just like you
When you see me I don’t flaunt
But inside you brew
Hard work, patience, discipline
that’s all you need from what I see
to transform that arson
that burns so deep inside you have for me
What do I have that you want
I earned what I have
so take your envious taunts,
turn them into your wants
Your Mind, Heart, and Soul
will take you to the top
Take a survey, Take a poll
it will show you not to stop
Love your life not mine
Your next act, your action plan
will be well worth your time
You will have what I have,
And maybe your first fan!
