Thank you @garyvee for the phenominal virtual mentoring & wisdom you share. When I saw this shirt months ago I scraped & borrowed the $7-$8 s&h to get this shirt. Some may be thinking "Really? You had to scrape & borrow SEVEN DOLLARS??" YEP, I did.
I lost EVERYTHING but a few boxes of clothes/personal items 2 yrs ago when my health started to deteriorate. It's been an extremely painful & difficult 2 yrs battling & waiting for surgery. FINALLY it happened 2 weeks ago & am on the road to healing.
I wore this #HUSTLE shirt damn near every day (lotsa hand washing...lol) as part of My personal MENTAL PREPARATION & DETERMINATION TO NEVER AGAIN BE BROKE, LIVING JUST TO SURVIVE & BE 100% DEPENDENT UPON SOMEONE ELSE. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT HAVE 'MORE THAN ENOUGH'. This makes the 3rd time I've had to start over but Never to this extent after losing everything + my income. Every time I had to force myself to walk a mile 1 way to Walmart w/my granddaughter, in pain, struggling against nausea w bags, a backpack & small luggage cart to haul it all back home, EVERY SINGLE TIME I was chanting to myself, "NEVER AGAIN WILL I BE BROKE. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH! TO TAKE CARE OF ALL MY NEEDS & WANTS. NEVER AGAIN WILL I NOT BE ABLE TO HELP MY KIDS WHEN IN NEED OR MY LOVED ONES. NEVER. AGAIN." I remember walking back one day, it started raining while we were inside. I had grabbed More than I really had room for &had a hard time hauling it back as the luggage cart kept tipping over w/bags falling out & granddaughter SO TIRED she had fallen asleep while shopping. A grumpy toddler with everything else, I sat down on a rock & cried! From pain & frustration. I cried out loud "WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?!?! I'M ALWAYS DOING FOR OTHERS, ALWAYS HELPING. I'M A GOOD MOTHER. TEACHER. A GOOD PERSON!!" This shirt has been part of my mental, emotional & spiritual preparation for when I'm healed. I've always been a Hustler, always Grinding but still broke more than not. NO MORE!! #neveragain #garyvee #hustle #grind #neverquit #refocused #determined #change #startingoveragain #faith #startingoveragain #itsnottoolate
