Post how you've struggled in the past. Motivate someone from your REAL life experiences for once. The #RealLifePostChallenge is letting you know one year after I moved to Los Angeles almost 19 years ago I was homeless, broke and didn't know anyone. I really had no one to call. I had met many people during that year, I was popular and running around with a popular group so I was lit. But, I was naive, uneducated about life and just young as hell lol. I ran out of resources options, money etc. I fought back, I had one person in my life and in my ear at the time. It was this girl I meet the 3rd day I moved to LA at the Beverly Center Mall at Foot Locker. I was embarrassed and ashamed that she had to see me at my lowest. I was depressed and had no plan on how I would become all these ideas I had in my head. I was definitely the male version of #HilaryBanks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air lol. Through many struggles, baby steps, good people like #AlanAndLygiaLott and #AjaGuyWilliams who continued to give me opportunities to get myself together. It took time, I had a lot of baggage and depression buy we all fought through it. The picture you see is where I used to sleep. All alone, depressed and praying consistently for a different way of thinking and mentality. I didn't wish for money then as I don't know. I wished and prayed for good opportunities that allow me to know, evolve and expand. This post is for the real ones. This platform is said by many to inspire, but it often times loses what inspire means. Real life, real events and real victories from the real grinders is what inspiring to me and is how I choose to inspire others. I will not confirm, you will rock with me because of who I am day today, which is a complex being. We are not designed to be one way, boring and without adventure. Let's share our REAL stories during this challenge. Tag me. I want to know one of your stories. Today I am a husband, father, self-employed small business owner who is running to become the next Mayor of #Pasadena WHO is YOU? WHAT IS YOUR STORY?
