When you are young and with your first love you think you are ready and can conquer the world until tough times presents itself to you and you have to step up because you said you would.
When I said I do I meant what I said but wasn't built as I thought I was to hold a commitment of marriage together. So when I thought I lost it all there was a little angel next to me making sure I ate & got through the emotions of losing my family
I had this energetic little girl and she loves cheerleading & gymnastics. I was invited to walk on the runway at the Community College & I had her and her sister walk along.Then out of no where she makes a cart wheel and smiles to the crowd and waved and my super star was born.
I was scorned from love and trusted no one and I met this woman who jumped out of her car while I was outside with friends & told me I was going to be hers. What she's given me was joy in my heart & energy again to realize that you can win if you have something to win for.
Growing up in the inner city sometimes circumstances in life forces you to grow up before your time. When your responsibilities surpass your age or understanding failure is not an option.You say you love your children? Show it by doing so, not by saying.
When you love someone unconditionally you never see any flaws in them. Thomas Marquis Ritchwood Jordan was a God fearing, loving father, husband, brother, son & friend to so many people. He was a man that loved God tremedously and his heart was full of joy and music. When he would sing his voice would bring so much energy into the room that it touched people's souls with love. My brother, my rider, was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Stage 1 sInce he was a child from eating paint chips off the wall.The disease has taken him for a ugly ride in life but he managed to cope for forty years, and given his family nothing but good times, love, happiness & knowledge. Always be available when a love one needs to talk and needs to express themselves to you, because depression is real and you never know what someone is going through. I love you bro & tell pops and Helen I said "What's up? See you guys soon." R.I.P.
As a teenager I thought taking the short cut in life things will turn out alright. Following the street life got me no where but in trouble with the law. At sixteen I was already a father and taking on adult responsibilities. Lets talk about it..
Funny how life places you in one situation to get you out of another. Your talent shows you your better then what you were doing. The transition takes place and it takes you on a journey, lets talk about it...
It is now up to you to provide for your children with a steady income. You took on the task of making babies so you have to take on providing for them. Lets talk about it...
When opportunity knocks you take it because you never know where it can lead. What ever you wanted to do when you were growing up and you finally have the time to do it, you take that opportunity. Lets talk about it...
I'm sure when you were growing up you had dreams of becoming a singer, actor, pro athlete, whatever you dreamed of and you wished it came true. Just know it still can come true if you take the time out and pursue it. It's never too late. You may hear "no" alot but, take that negative and turn it into the positive. Your Destiny is within your hands. Let's talk about it...
When you really want to become or pursue something you will make it your business to learn about it. Just know nothing comes easy in life and no one will give you anything besides some advice. Take the advice and continue to move forward and gather more information until you have enough and put it to use. #RandyRitchwood
I was raised with ten brothers and sisters and having my father in my life it played a very Important role in a young person's upbringing.I had children at a young age but, I stepped up to the plate to raise my children and stayed in school to develop a trade. We worked as a "unit" with my children's mothers to create stability for our offspring.
Let's come together and try our best to resolve the issues we are having by speaking on them and coming up with a solution.The first step is talking and being honest with self so we can move forward with what we are dealing with. Whether we are dealing with love & compassion, relationships, trust, fatherhood , parenting, guidance, encouragement & motivation.
