Asham Afrikans! I have decided to post some things that I do to survive as an Afrikan in the diaspora. These work for me. period. So dont nobody come on actin like I am tryin to tell you how to live. (1) Wake up each morning in good spirits. People that wake up in a foul mood are giving in to weakness. Nobody has had a chance to do anything to you so don't wake up mean muggin! Have a sense of humor! Laugh, have fun! (2) Have your battle plan done the night before. goals. list of things to do etc.... Man. you dont wanna have to wake up and do that. Works better for me at least (3) Get rid of ALL negative people! I dont care what the relationship to you is. These people will have you getting headaches, muscle aches, stomach ailments and worse. This is gonna be the hardest one but in many ways it is the most essential! If your mate is negative, that is a relection on YOU! Bounce that a## on out of there. I dont allow them to cross my threshold. (4) Forget about yesterday! It is a wrap! I work on this one constantly. Well, swallow these 4 for today. Have a great day!
