What does life mean to you? To me life means to be free no matter the consequences. I say that’s what life means to me but I live by rules and have morals so the question is what does it mean to be free. Is it neglecting the responsibilities of an adult and having a mind frame of a teenage adolescent. You know ”YOLO”. Well to me being free is more than just a mindset it’s more of a lifestyle you know. Freedom oh freedom where have you been, not my friend. Your my enemy but you know what they say keep your friends close but your enemies closer. So being free and living my life to the fullest is all I’m about to the point that someone’s opinion holds no weight, zero gravity. We, and saying we I mean I, look at the social networks that I am apart of and consider it a community where I share my life, inspirations, and aspirations. Therefore sharing private, funny, sad, emotional, and personal business with the people I feel are comfortable with listening and willing to be empathetic, sympathetic, and relatable. See all of these things are apart of my life but they don’t control me or make me feel a certain way. Okay I’m lying and I won’t say that I haven’t been a victim of cyber envy because I have. Seeing friends having a good time when all I do is work and then I remind myself that whatever I’m doing is the right thing and that I’m pregnant with the new me and transforming into the person I always wanted to be. Living in Texas for almost the past two years have been a big blessing and I thank god for the opportunity for change. To answer your question life to me means everything, everyone, and everywhere.
Perseverance: steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
The older I get the more I look like my dad. The older I get the more troubled he becomes. I hope that its not a sign of the inevitable. Living away from home I don’t see my family much and were close. It’s been hard but at the end of the day I’m growing into my own man and even though he didn’t teach me much he taught me the most.
Self Portrait…..well a spitting image of my daddy.
So today I practiced dancing and it felt great. It’s not the same since I moved away from Georgia. Everything else is better, besides missing my family. My dancing hasn’t been the same. Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost it, but I practice and it’s there. Maybe the fire that I had for dance before has become dim, because of the situation that I am in. This is definitely the maturation stage of my life, and I guess dancing is not a priority of mine right now at this juncture of my life. It’s crazy because dancing was such a big part of my personality and who I was, and now I feel like I am running on empty. I still get the urge to let loose and let it all out. When dancing I feel free. Maybe this is what I need; to test myself, and see if this is what I want to do, my passion. Well we shall see and in the meantime I’m contemplating dancing, making a video for the track “WISEMAN” by Frank Ocean. I really like that song a lot, it has so much emotion.
So determine to be successful and have money that it drives us into the ground. Don’t forget that having all that success does not make you successful. It’s what you do with it when you obtain it that makes you the successor.
No matter what happens in life, I will do my best to be more optimistic about it. Look forward to the great things, and be happy about the positive things. Dwelling on what gets you down, won’t get you anywhere. So if anyone reads this passage, just do me a solid favor, and try to be happy for what you have, and know that there is someone out there that cares about you. It might not be the person you want to care for you but there is someone who does! Look forward to life cause it’s a beautiful thing even beneath all the ugly!!
