Who's Ready For Reflection Time With Daryle?

Updated: Oct 16, 2023

With the passing of Lil' Hugh and watching what Denise has been going though over the last couple of months, I've really been in deep reflection. "Where do I wanna go? Who do I wanna be? What is important to me?", have been echoing in my thoughts. Seeing some of my past colleagues over the weekend helped put a lot of things in perspective without me sharing a thought with anyone. I've always found a way to choose the "Billy Goat Path" instead of taking the conventional route. If we wore uniforms somehow mine would be different. If we were taught a certain way, somehow I'd make changes that would make it easier for all. If there was a group, at some point you'd turn around and see me off to myself in my own world. This has been a common theme throughtout my entire life.

I think things felt so different at this time of my life because for the first time, I don't have that "Yoda" figure in my life to steer me back when I got too far out there. Hearing those that I looked up to tell me how proud they've been of me and have been watching really gave me a boost. Sometimes your mind can lead you to believe everyone looks at you as a "f**k up" when in fact they love that you've not been afraid to take risk!

The one thing I will tell anyone is to remember to keep your eyes on YOUR prize. Your goals may not be the goals of your colleagues, family, or even a mentor. Don't compare ANYONE to but you. Am I saying don't look up to people or learn from anyone? Not at all! Be comfortable in your own skin. If that's who you are, that's who you are. I guess that's it for now! Remember, be you, and love somebody! You can do that for free!
