A short story about the ups and downs that life can put you through from @craftyleft57
“Today is the day, hopefully, that your boy’s bad luck changes. I feel like Nas; not saying that I have a shorty to bring her milkshake to the yard, but in the sense that this black cloud won’t leave me alone! I was on top of the world; making fast cash the legal way. Mann! If you could have seen my face after those $1,000 checks you would understand why I was living the “good life” New pair of kicks, EVERY CHECK! Fresh package of my favorite flavored goods, EVERY CHECK! MAN I WAS DOING IT BIG! Everything was perfect until my life went through changes. Friday, January 31,2014 is when my life took one of the most drastic changes I had ever experienced; a normal day at work for your boy, I was chillin, it wasn’t pay day but I came in the same as always: energetic and ready to work! My boss asked if she could review my children’s observations, to which I replied “sure”. She looked at them and even complemented me on the work. Later on that day, about 3:30 pm, while I was reading a book to the children I was called to the director’s office. I thought nothing of it, that maybe she needed my assistance with something. IDK. So I just did as I was told and went to the office. I arrive and I’m simply handed a paper saying I’ve been terminated. I’m in utter shock. I couldn’t believe it! I demanded to know why I was being subjected to this change? No words from her at first, so I demanded again. All she says is “You know why.” (Clearly I had no clue) I wanted to go off, show her how this quiet guy can be a real rude Englewood nigga! But I held back, I couldn’t let my kids see me like that. What would they think? What would they say? They look up to Mr. Anthony, I didn’t want them to be subjected to that change. So I did it professional. Shake the b**ch hand who fired me and say, ‘thank you for the wonderful opportunity, be blessed.’ Be blessed? Yeah right! I don’t wish death up on anybody, but CHANGE, CHANGE is something I want this b**ch to experience, the same type of change she put me through.
Change is something that affects your life either negatively or positively. The change I went through was a negative one, yes, but I did grow from it, and now a positive change has begun to shine light onto my situation; I have found another employer and things are looking good for the future, in the back of my mind I know change is lurking, all I can do is hope that the next change will be positive.”
Change happens, whether its good change or bad change is perceptional, what’s good for the goose is not always good for the gander, meaning what’s thought to be good by you may not be good to me. Many could say that losing one’s job is the ultimate negative change, but we also learn that sometimes we have to experience the negative changes to appreciate the positive ones that are on the horizon.
