Ah. The ever so spontaneous post. Here goes.
I’m listening to Black Panther’s Soundtrack Album. It is INSANELY amazing. I guess I should leave thoughts about that to the Traklife Blog. Yep, I’ve been OBSESSED with listening to a bunch of new music lately. In fact, I only wish I could post a lot more often. I’ll keep trying. It’s so fun sharing some nice gems!
There’s so much to discover in life.
It’s kind of like when the realization hits when you really try to see the “positive” in things as best as you can, but you have to go through the shittiest of days and experiences to be able to appreciate the top days.
That’s what I cherish most about this space (my blog) because it’s a place I can express my thoughts and life lessons, etc. etc. hoping to inspire another to also see the good in every situation. I’d like to think of my writing a different form of art. Writing and communicating deeply effects me when I am able to speak from the heart. Plus, I’m able to go on these random tangents on here with no one to tell me I can’t.
I think that’s a common theme I see among others. I like to ask people what their dreams are and if they can do anything in the world what would it be? They tell me their dreams, but a lot of the times I only hear excuses on why they can’t pursue it. And that’s not to discredit or unacknowledge everyone’s personal situations. I’m just looking at it differently because I’ve accomplished the things I have by not letting anything get in the way. I literally know what it feels like to not have a car for so long, but with the love and support of friends and family I graduated college and have had amazing career opportunities. My grit was shown in one instance, for 3 months, I’ve taken the train and bus from Paramount to West Hollywood for an internship as a full time student/part-time worker. It was intense. After that I felt like I could do anything. I also managed to be a part of an amazing internet radio show in LA while having to borrow a car every week. Then finally saving enough to buy my own car. Yeah and so on. My point being, in my opinion there is no excuse for anything.
I don’t know if it could be at the age in my life, but it’s almost like it feels like this is just beginning. Seeing things so differently or maybe I’m just paying more attention to the blessings and staying grateful for it all, most importantly. That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. I’m just grateful for the opportunities.
I think it’s great to have a solid support system, you need that. With my personal journey, at this point, I feel the most important lesson for me is learning to lean on myself as my strongest support system. At the end of the day you know there’s only one you and one you only. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to wake up one day and look back and only “wish” I tried or did something. So might as well make this life my best life. (:
