“The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely.” -David Cuschieri
What a week huh…
I took action, made some critical decisions, and I have been blessed in the long run.
I reached out to m’lady, you know…
The fine woman I want to marry, that I am reconnecting with step by step.
The female whom I expressed “I would have been a damn fool if I were to die and I never told you that I cared.”
Saying I love you and miss you without saying those words and coming off like a cheesy loser in a rom-com. Nice goin’ Eric.
Hannah Darling and I had a brief phone call, I expressed concern over two of my friends who I sat down with for a business overview.
Unfortunate to say, but I came out unsuccessful in regards to building the business, but I built on my skillset as I learned I really must engage in conversation in order to get to the heart of what people want, and not what they don’t want anymore.
Don’t get me started on car payments, bills, college education, job frustrations, lack of support from friends and family. GOOD GRIEF! What a rollercoaster.
I hear both friends blurt out “I’m so boring. I don’t know why I have any friends,” “I am so miserable, sad and lonely.”
As an Angry Red, and with angry I mean stern, I laid down the line, I asked them “Who put that idea in your head? Where the hell did that come from?”
When it comes to self-worth and appreciating others, believe me, I am on people like a pack of wolves hunting for deer.
Get it in your head. Common sense. Self-evident. You are Here in the World. You Exist or existed at some point. Someone or something must have thought you were important enough to be here.
Get over yourself.
I was guilty of self-pity too, but you know what, “As a man thinketh, he becomes.”
There are two types of people in the world, those that are blessed, enjoying the riches of life effortlessly, and those that are disgruntled, miserable, and live a life of emptiness.
WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE? Which one am I?
I love ’em, but dear God. You are a Gift!
Hannah asked me if both of them were going to school, I explained that they both feel lost, and she literally said, “Well, you know, Millennials… College isn’t fun.”
Lol, my heart dropped. Hannah is in her first year of University right now!
It wasn’t my time to say it, but I thought of it. “Hannah, what do you want? Why are you at school, what is your heart telling you?”
I was intrigued by the fact that there are some people in the world that don’t understand they can ‘Do something about it’, if they recognize their magnificence. She comforted me saying I was looking too deep into my friend’s emotions, “Eric, it’s literally what they said,” she states with cool, collected character. She had to end the phone call due to some theater-related responsibilities, but she told me. “I hope you’re doing well.”
I told her, “Hannah, thank you. I appreciate that. You too.”
I was so nervous, I was wearing my compass and before I even called her, my heart was pumpin’ at full speed ahead.
Greatest blessing I heard, She told me, “Hey message me, or whatever.”
Sure enough, I received a message from her MOTHER last night. She said she thinks of me often and would love an update. My subconscious speaks, “Mom-in-Law, is that you?”
Learned a critical lesson after meeting with two friends for coffee.
Message Received From Hannah’s Mama, What a Sweetheart. Guess Momma Knows Best.
Reached out to Hannah again after a month, talk about space, don’t you care about her?
Working on it, can’t begin a new romance with her overnight….
Come to think of it.
Hannah, there are two types of people in the world. Those that see you and say, “Hannah, when I look in your eyes, time stands still.” Then there are those that say, “Your face could stop a clock.”
Hannah, which one do you think I am? She’s beautiful and bright, so of course, she’s going to… ASK.
“Eric, are you serious?” She starts tearing up, I may throw in a “Did anyone ever tell you why your parents are the greatest thieves ever?”
“Because they stole the stars from the sky and placed them in your beautiful eyes. Oh, I just remembered! I just found out that God really showed off when he created…”
She becomes angsty, frustrated even. “What! When God created what?”
I come close to whisper in her ear.
Now that sounds like a wonderful evening to reconcile our special bond.
Play “Just The Two of Us” by Bill Withers in the background of the restaurant, tell her, “Hannah, I would love to dance, but I’m looking for a partner. Know anyone in the area that would love to dance?”
She’s called me a “Tease” before, now I know why. The Universe has been gracious and will only continue to be more gracious.
Hang on a second…. Grace.
Hannah, Grace. The meaning of the name Hannah is Grace. Her last name, as of now, is Eleazer, which means “God’s Help(er). Help of God”
Hannah Eleazer = Grace of God
She truly is Divine.
But what about me? Don’t I deserve some limelight? Let’s get my big Red Head over here.
Eric means Ever or Eternal Ruler. Richey means Powerful, Way of Being. Let me get this straight, for God to be all-powerful, ever-present, all-knowing… Blah blah blah. God is Being. Powerful. Forever and Eternal.
Eric Richey = “God”
Everybody knows, there is an old saying, “You’ve got to be kidding me!” Lol. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have hit the jackpot! 🙂
Hannah and I make “Gracious God”. In its purest form.
We are. Love.
Keep Lovin’ to Keep Livin’…
