Smiling has become my greatest weapon.
If there’s anything one thing that has changed in my life, it’s that smiling has become my greatest weapon. I’ve been to hell and back mentally, emotionally, and physically. There was a time where I couldn’t sleep for days either out of pain or out of anger. I’d recreate every negative thing that happened to me for hours and I would imagine what I would do differently. For a long time I was in an unhealthy place. It took a lot for me to see that the only person who was unhappy, was me.
A lot of times, forgiveness can make you feel weak…like a pushover. And other times, like a person with self respect, integrity and class. Through it all, smiling has become my greatest weapon.
I wanted revenge on everyone who hurt me or had taken advantage of me. Family, friends, bad business, everyone. It changed how I trusted, it changed how I love, and it changed how I do business. If you’re a person who relates to finding yourself always helping, to only get hurt: Smile. Just smile. Be happy! There isn’t a better way to get back at the people who have hurt you. Focus on yourself, find the things that bring joy into your life. I owe it to myself to be happy.
Forgiveness: the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, forswears recompense from or punishment of the offender, however legally or morally justified it might be, and with an increased ability to wish the offender well.

I desire greatness and I’m closer than ever to getting what I want. My company Geek Street Society is set for a relaunch and I’m recovering a lot of what I lost. Smiling has played a huge part in my recovery. There’s something powerful about being able to show how strong you are through a smile. To show that you are capable of overcoming any obstacle life throws your way. I look at myself in the mirror today proud, excited and focused!
