As we enter a new month and things are starting to percolate or at least I'm feeling like the HIVE blockchain is going hard right into 2023, but we still have a few months left in 22; not to mention the summer is not over.
We are well into the dog days of summer and although I had a big void without the workouts, as I recover, there are still a lot to be pumped about.
Over the weekend and into the beginning of this week, there is the usual excitement when their is a hike on HIVE and although most of us know that we can't get too absorbed with price; it's still gets folks wide-eyed and I'm sure motivated to see it through, until we get to a point of not looking back and eventually hitting the moon shot.
Personally, I'm always happy to see everyone excited when we push towards a buck and I join the fun.
In my opinion, it's important to get the negative and positive jolts; as we can remain optimistic and realistic simultaneously.
I have a 9 to 5 to pay the bills and I know there are so many who rely on their crypto or online marketing journeys to get from point A to point B and although I'm not in that situation; I know all too well, what struggling is.
Down to your last 25 cents and not spending the quarter because you need it in case it's an opportunity to call for a potential job opportunity. I lived that at one point in my life, so I try to never take anything for granted.
I'm all in on HIVE, because I believe in what it can do for so many in this community. The HIVE community is amazing and who I root for day in and day out.
I'm also in for myself, my fiancé and her boys; because I want to ride off into the sunset not relying on anyone's set of rules on how I am taken care of during my last years on earth.
Having control of your own life is important, especially as we age. The disrespect for the elderly is outright blasphemous and when I get too old to be viable, I still want to be able to hang in hard.
Being on HIVE has provided me the hope, that I can build a long-term foundation to having the simplicity of not having to rely too much, if at all, from governmental entities.
Showing up daily on HIVE has made a whale of a difference in what I still feel is a short time. Some time this month, I will make 2 years as a member and come February, 2 years of daily activity from that point.
I dilly dallied the first six months when I first joined HIVE. The aha moment came when I upgraded my CTP membership and from that point I never looked back. I became a HIVER for LIFE!
Although, there were some personal situations bad and good that continued through July that can undoubtedly be detrimental to one's consistency; I made sure come hell or high water my activity would remain in tact and I know I did that. No doubt about that.
When I can look at my numbers increase every month with or without much stagnation then I can only keep doing what I'm doing until the time comes when I can have much more time to be even more active on HIVE.
From my previous to my current numbers, I believe the numbers came in hotter than the previous few months; which is crazy to even think about.
Honestly, at this point I had mentioned goals a few months back; but I'm just continuing the grind. I'm blessed to be in this position, building and just stacking.
I'm not making any bold moves, I'm not freaking out about shit that I can't control and I'm remaining loyal to the process.
I don't have the big bucks to invest a lot of fiat or time, so I have to work for it and that is no different than what I've done most of my life.
I've been working since I was 15 years old and before that my mother raised my sisters and I on welfare.
Then it became my personal mission in life to never be on any type of welfare.
I've worked in bodegas, factories, messenger (on foot) and a few other back breaking jobs, but then I also worked on Madison Avenue and Wall Street, so know what it is to have a big fat check including bonuses.
I'm had my own office or I worked in some pretty nice and snazzy accommodations.
I've traveled on business and stayed in high end hotels with everything paid.
Bad or Good, one thing has never changed. I grind no matter what the situation is.
My other path is the minimal effort I put into my email marketing off-chain and I'm lucky to still generate subscribers and totally shocked I got 39 more this past July.
I still have a lot of work to do on that front, because I have to increase those numbers to have a better shot at bringing in new Nerdies and Hivers.
With that said, not willing to sacrifice too much of my time on the HIVE blockchain to dabble off of it. At least on HIVE Twitter there are like-minded people.
