Today I spoke to @jaylynhunt an old student of mine from Jackson, MS years ago when I taught at Forest Hill High School. At the start of each class I'd have the class recite: "Destiny is not a matter of chance it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved." (William Jennings Bryan)
These amazing students (who taught me way more than I ever taught them) probably got so sick of reciting that quote daily. As I spoke with @jaylynhunt she told me how she lives by that quote. She didn't know this (until now) but that brought tears in my eyes (yea yea your boy is soft I know)! There's a pic on her IG of her holding her associates degree. Y'all don't even know what that means to me!
I've learned in life that the greatest joys comes not from what you accomplish individually, but rather seeing those you have given your heart & soul to discover their potential & destiny.
As the quote says, "it (destiny) is a thing to be achieved." As you look at your current situation answer this question- are you working towards achieving your destiny? 🙏🏽🙌🏽❤️ @shreddednutritionrx
