It’s because of you a lot of people are ok, but are you ok?
That was the question of the night during Keyshia Cole and her mother’s heart to heart conversation. I didn’t get a chance to watch Keyshia Cole’s ‘All In” reality show when it originally aired so this may seem like yesterdays news to some but as for me, it’s fresh and relevant in this present moment. The reality show is basically about her reality of life, family, journeys and forgiveness. I enjoy it for the most part because I’m a fan of Frankie, Keyshia’s mother. Frankie’ is one of a kind. She’s the life of the party, full of wisdom but her past, like most of us, keeps her bound. Her past involves drug, alcohol, mental and physical abuse. She doesn’t allow it to stop her but it does haunt and bound her from time to time. She’s a fighter however and I believe will go on and minister to the masses; so when she speaks soberly, I listen.
“You have to look at the big picture. The picture has God first, yourself, then family but the picture is not complete without a frame. You have to frame that picture, close it in. Everything you have is because you worked for it. You don’t owe nobody nothing, not even me, but you do owe yourself. You owe yourself the best, the best! And don’t settle for less. Hold your title, you’re the champ! You didn’t make the mistakes I made. God is good all the time!”
My spirit got so much joy and empowerment from that conversation. I took every bit of that in. God has a way of getting a word to you if you’re willing to open up and hear it.
I owe myself the best and I will not settle for less. I am the champ and will hold my title. I’m not my mother’s mistakes. I am the completion of the big picture. God is good all the time!
Are you ok????
