Know what company is good for you and not good enough for you. Quit letting anything and anybody enter your life.
I love the feeling of being free. You know, when you finally find something that makes you say screw it to all the things that are bothering you or weighing you down. Every now and then we find that type of escape, and its sooo amazing to feel that power over your struggles; the kind that minimizes them and maximizes your spirit. And for a moment you discover the hero in yourself, the one that God secrectly slipped inside of you when you needed it the most. There’s nothing like the strength of a woman, and there’s nothing more beautiful than a young woman or man realizing their strength and taking control over her life. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in our lives outside of our solitude-pleasing other people, suiting others needs, meeting other peoples expectations, and on top of that exceeding them, if you like to be over the top… that we lose sight of what makes us as induviduals happy, what makes you proud of you?
There comes a time in your life when you got to be mentally engaged in yourself and do whats best for you and what makes you happy. For me, it means relaxing, and allowing the dreamer of a girl in my head play out her deepest desires in life. It’s like a strong feeling of peace. Other times it means me talking to someone I look up to and care deeply about, you’ll be surprised at how much inspiration you can gain from the conversation of wiser person. Sometimes its something as simple as watching a best friend get older, grow, and become the person they were meant to be. Find that kind of beauty in life, even in another person. You should try it, it makes you proud of the company you keep. This is all about wisdom, and being wise is a CHOICE. Wisdom doesn’t soley come with age, im talking about that deep knowledge that takes an effort and sometimes a struggle in order to find. Overall, I’m saying that getting to know yourself will teach you a lot about the world, things that something as simple as a series of birthdays can’t bring.
And all this violence on CNN has got to stop! Young people, MY people, quit making a fuss and fight over every little dispute. Learn to walk away from drama and live your life above it. All this back and forth shit is STUPID. Don’t yall know that revenge only cheapens what you’ve been through. It’s lame and shows that you’re caught up and a product of messy ways. Just walk away and let God deal with it, or as others would say, let karma finish it out for you. Trust me, it hits your opponent harder than you ever could.
Here’s some tips about getting along in this world. It’s about being the best that you can be and living a respectful life. Respect yourself, and respect those who how you that they respect themselves as well. And everyone needs to realize that repect isn’t given, it’s gained. You can’t walk around looking crazy, always acting like a asshole or unladylike, and being out of line and expect people to recognize the best that’s in you. It just doesn’t happen like that. You want people to respect you? Respect yourself. You want people to think highly of you? Do the things that are worth admiring. Be sweet, be brave, be confident, yet modest, speak up for whatever it is you believe in–regardless if you’re the only one with that opinion. Be kind but stand your ground, take a chance and be a “go getter”; I admire every person that’s achieved their goals in life, success is beautiful. Will everybody appriciate these things in you? No, but the people that are worth it will; the good people in life.
Balance your time and associations. Cherish your friends because you’ll only find a few best ones in life. Spend time with your family while your blessed with that time. If you have a partner in life, love, trust, and embrace them. Allow them to love you more than you have ever felt and make them too feel like they are the most amazing thing in the world. Take a break on this whole ‘tough love’ approach and embrace love for what’s it’s meant for. It’s suppose to be lovey dovey and intimant, be proud to have that. If that’s your man or woman, don’t be ashamed to be ‘whooped’ over them, you shoud be proud to be the one they chose apart from the rest. You should love them for seeing your worth that other people didn’t appreciate. Quit looking at falling in love as a weakness; the only time it isn’t good is when it isn’t DOING you any good. Love someone worth your time, patience, trust, and admiration. If you’re significant other isn’t measuring up and isn’t right for you, it’s okay, do yourself a favor and let it go and keep it moving. Learn to be happy and successful by yourself and with yourself, trust indepence and a love for life is attractive to everyone. Lean on your friends, family and lovers when you’re weak, let them know what they mean to you; these are your angels in life, they’re on your side and looking out for your best interest. Let them grow without being afraid of losing them, allow them the space to move far in life, that’s love. Don’t allow petty things to knock these relationships because the devil comes in all shapes and forms to hurt your life and your happiness.
Also, failures are only temporary, don’t let trials that stump you along the way keep you down. If you find that you’re disappointed in yourself for whatever reason, then change what you do not like, improve the parts of yourself that you see need enrichment. This is the act of growing. Sometimes it takes realizing that what you are is not what you planned, and who you are is not who you like. That’s fine, that’s the beginning of taking on a new merge, and you become something greater than you’ve been and sometimes ever were. But quit putting yourselves down, nobody is going to grasp the concept of your essence, the beauty in you if you tell them and yourself that you’re not worth shit. There will be enough people going against you through your struggle, don’t volunteer yourself as an additional opponent. Be on your side, know your worth and believe in yourself.
Think about everything you are, everything people love you for, you’re strengths, the things about you that set you apart from the rest. You’re an amazing person, that is if YOU think so. We’re only worth as much as we think we are. So if you think you’re not worth shit you’re probably not going to get shit. Likewise, if you think you deserve the world your dreams are twenty times more likely to come true, because you’ll make it happen. Be opinionated, and have a voice in what you do. You must know what you consider good and not good for your life. Know what company is good for you and not good enough for you. Quit letting anything and anybody enter your life. You can’t be everybody’s friend, and not everybody is going to like they see in you. In fact some people may love your qualities but decide to hate you for them because they feel they could never measure up to that. It’s sad, but you’ll find that in society this can be a harsh reality. Be successful, go after whatever your heart desires. In fact, I can’t even focus or hold a solid peace of mind if I feel like I’m not moving forward in life. Some see it as a flaw but honestly I’m grateful because that focus sets me back on track anytime I start to fall off. Know what accomplishments are going to make you proud of the life you live. Set goals and know what’s not going to get you there and know that there’s some things in life that you’re gonna have to sacrifice in order to get to where it is you want to be. You may have to step out of some comfort zones, kick some bad habits, get serious and put the ‘fun life’ on hold for a little bit. You won’t be ready for the whole ’work hard play harder’ lifestyle until you have gotten down the ‘all work and no play’ lifestyle; that’s just how it is. It’s times like these that we realize who we are, we find those attributes about ourselves that favor us, the ones that make us great people. So we know who we are, we hold onto those things and stand by them everyday. Hold close to that, because when you forget who you are, you forget who you wanted to be. It’s a key to getting far in anything you put your mind to. In conclusion, I truly believe that’s how you make it in the world.
