As time so blessedly has gone on and been the teacher of all truths for me, I have gained insight to things that I can share, for there were moments that have been so enlightening to not share would really be a shame.
My top 7 standpoints on life:
1) IT GOES ON….
When faced with adversity, regardless of the scale, we often think it’s all over. It’s done. Fuck it all. Well to that I say, Suck it up butter cup. Life, did.Not. Get.The. Memo. about. your feelings and even if it did.. the response would be, AND SO? WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO ? Nothing around you stops because you’re having a moment. Learn from life and do as it does. Keep it moving. The key to moving forward is to keep balance and in order to keep balance you’ve got to keep moving.. see how that works?
2) Negative Nancy, is the leeeeeeast favorite guest ANYWHERE.
Next time you find your self all wrapped up in some funky ass negative mess. Record it. Give yourself a few minutes, watch it or listen to it, which ever. Oh you embarrassed huh? Ya, that’s what I thought. Listen everybody has a story that will break your heart. It doesn’t mean the general public has to be subjected to hear every sad tale ever told. No one is out to get you, no one wants you to fail, but lets be real they do wish you would shut the fuck up. When you are in these “funks” be solo,yo. Don’t spread your mess onto others, cause if it keeps up you’re going to be solo by no choice of your own. Plus the law of attraction states, you get back what you give. Put your negative mess out in the air and in no time you’ll be reaping in the pollution!
3) Success does not come to those who just exist.
Greatness is instilled in all of us, how that greatness is utilized will ultimately indicate your level of success.Everyone, really is great but some are, a bright great and others are, a great you merely exist kind of great. Show up to life everyday with the idea that you will be greater than you were yesterday, as a matter of fact the greatest you have been to date. Win within and I promise you, your greatness will begin to take shape. Take in everything around you, LIVE LIFE and expose your self to your dreams by being raw and relentless. REFUSE TO ONLY EXIST, DO NOT SUCCUMB TO MEDIOCRITY. You owe the world more than that. Show us whatchaaa gott bahbay (Jigga Voice)
4) Make Memories
I have the type of spirit in which a simple task such as grocery shopping can become an epic memory. I’ve realized that in itself is a blessing. Not many people have that ability, so to those who don’t I say. Fuck your life, just kidding! Make planned memories. Nothing will leave this earth with you, shit 85% of us wont even remember our name in old age, but our existence is measured by character. Character is built on experience. Experience often equates to memories. You wont gain virtues from material goods. Rather from the people who make you feel good, from the moments that are unforgettable and the times that you play over and over again in your head. The bonds we build, based on experiences we encounter with one another, are the real foods to your soul. I truly believe the purpose to the life we live is very simple, experience life and what it has to offer. Make those God damned memories. The one commonality I have found among the happiest people is, everyone one of them prefers moments over material.
5) FAMILY IS THE BE ALL END ALL .. THAT’S ALL Y’ALL.
The trials and tribulations we encounter are set to better us, make us stronger and ultimately bring us to our greatest potential. The foundations of our strength and endurance to cope with the trails and tribulations of life come from our support systems. What better support system then the love and encouragement of those who unconditionally love you. For every time your back has been against the rope, its usually a family member who you tag in to help. When you are at your proudest moment its usually a family member you inform first and when your slipping and all else fails the first hand your grab is usually a family members. Now I’m assuming a lot of you, know it alls are shaking your heads in disagreement. RELAX, amazing friends are family as well. Blood may make you related but it doesn’t always make you family. Cherish them, encourage them, blessed them with your presence frequently and above all love them the best way you can.
6) BE REAL
Ouff I cannot express the importance of being real. Realness brings your life such undeniable value. Now as I’ve mentioned in prior posts, being real doesn’t mean being rude and abrasive. It means to trust your gut and listen to your intuition. Honesty is the most noble of traits. Being real means your honest with your self and those around you. In being real you begin to attract others who are real and your life is no longer an imitated version, rather your life becomes just that, life. Take it from me when I say, only when you are true to you will you gain real happiness. That gut feeling, is real. Doing things because it makes you smile, that’s real. Saying no when you really don’t want to do something, that’s real. People appreciate that more than any half-assed bullshit you put before them. Being real will bring you such peace within that you can focus on other aspects of your life, move forward and tap into that greatness that I so strongly believe is in all of us.
7) BE GRATEFUL, BE MERCIFUL AND LIVE IN SERVICE.
I repeat those three mantras every single morning of my life, the very second that I awake. You are entitled to shit.The fruits of your labour come from the blessings you have been granted. Ungrateful people, tend to have very ugly hearts. Stay clear. Be Merciful, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle, they don’t need you to go to war with them too. Give, give and give, for a heart full of joy and love is only replenished by the joy and love of others. For every morning that you rise, you have been granted another miracle. Make your life beautiful, live it love it and share it ……
