Shout Out To…

 

This was originally posted on June 6, 2014 on my Facebook page… It pertains to the people of Bermuda, however it can pertain to anyone world wide.

 


 

I would like to give a shout out….

To the people that are quietly surviving… The people that are working to make ends meet and the many out of work. Some with families to support. They don’t know where their next meal is going to come from or how they will pay Belco, who doesn’t care that you don’t have a steady income coming in. You’re quietly doing your best to survive yet still smiling through it all. You don’t complain out loud but quietly to yourself, grateful for what may seem like so little to some, is indeed a great deal to many.. that are also quietly surviving just like yourself.

I would like to give a shout out…..

To the people that complain out loud. The people that have jobs; well paying jobs and have insurance and are collecting pension. The people that have cars, bikes, clothes and gold. They travel at least twice a year and are able to ‘enjoy’ life on this island we call paradise. These people that are at times very unkind and shallow, and lack compassion towards others. The ones that have no clue about the struggle and what other people are going through. You could lose your job in the blink of an eye and the possessions that you have can be taken away…and then at that moment,  you’ll feel what it’s like to be apart of the struggle.

I would like to give a shout out….

To the ones that recognise and can relate to the struggle and have compassion for one another. The ones that know what it’s like to have no lights and you have to dip water from the tank so you can flush the toilet. To the ones that know all about working pay check to pay check, month to month. To the ones that may not have a whole lot but are still willing to give their last to someone in need…And to the ones that complain a bit but then catch themselves because they know things could be a whole lot worse….

Life is too short to be anything but happy….When things get rough, pray to Jah and ride those waves out.

So…..I’m now a first time mom and a single parent.  I’m not where I want to be yet, but by the grace of God and hard work I will get there. I know I am blessed to have a great support system, a roof over my head and I’m healthy and my daughter is healthy. I am grateful….. I have what I need. That being said, I do know all about the struggle, trust and believe.  I deeply emphasize with anyone going through it.  Better days are indeed coming. I know this is easier said than done at times but focus on the positive and don’t give up!!

Be blessed. xx
