It’s crazy how life works. When we sit back, complain and wish things will get better, nothing happens other then no progress. However, when we get up, stop complaining and take life by the horns and control it, everything works for the better. So if you are feeling down, depressed, tired of having no results, etc… GET UP and LIVE LIFE because at the end of the day its your life and no one else’s.

As I am sitting here thinking about my life, a smile is upon my face. When I look at what I’ve been through and where I’m going, I can’t help but to think about my friends along the way. I truly believe that people underrate friendships. Yes, there are those friendships that are good, bad and ugly but overall friendships are very important and vital to everyday life. Some friendships don’t last long due to circumstances while others lose it’s substance, however, every friend plays an important role within our lives. When I think about my friends, I think about the ups, downs and the paths we have created for ourselves and is still creating such as girlfriends, boyfriends, marriage, children, college degrees, jobs, etc., and it’s just the beginning. My friends are great individuals and I am so bless and happy to have them in my life. Are we the same? No. Do we have different point of views? Yes. Do we have arguments? Of course. But at the end of the day we respect one another. I can truly say that my friends are an extension of me and that makes me smile within.

 

This is dedicated to my friends

 

People fall in love with the “idea,” versus the reality. Having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., is wonderful but the reality is that, it’s what you make it and that can be positive, negative or both. I’m not saying that falling in love with the idea of something is bad but when you fall in love with the idea and try to change a person, control them and their surroundings, that is when the idea is bad. When we look at social media, we see so many people showcasing their love for another person and as we are looking at those individuals, we might feel out of the loop and lonely and that is when the idea enters into our mindsets and that is when we fall head first with the idea of having someone to call our own or go to the next level with. When we fall head first with the idea and then get someone to call our own, many people try to create a life/relationship that reflects what they see in movies, celebrities, social media etc., and that can break your relationship. Therefore, don’t fall in love with the “idea,” of having a wife/husband, boyfriend/girlfriend, best-friend or getting married etc., just because you’re trying to fit in or prove something to someone because at the end of the day it can and will bite you where it hurts the most and that is in the heart.

It’s crazy what silence and relaxation can do to you. Here I am laying in my bed listening to slow jams/ r&b and as I reminisce on my day I realize that it was great. Even though some points throughout my day were low, I can’t lay in my bed and ponder about the little things. We as humans have to stop letting the bad overcome the good in our lives. Life is short.

Why do we as humans rush life? We want to grow up fast, force love(and everything that comes with it), etc… We go through life so fast that we miss the small things which are the most important things. Yes, growth, love and everything in-between is great and wonderful but rushing and forcing is not. Patience and living life is what truly matters because when you look back on life you’re going to regret rushing. Life is not a race but instead a gift.

It’s funny how things work out in the end. In the beginning, people blame things on you, talk down about you, kick you under the rug, and have these people called “followers,” that follow and believe every lie that comes out of their mouths. Then when you finally part and make peace with yourself and others, they want to come back like nothing never happened. Isn’t that hilarious? Why is that? Is it because they are lonely and realized that the only real and true friends they had were the ones they threw under the rug? Or is it because they have realized how good you are doing and that your life is moving forward while they are still in the past? Is it funny how things work out at the end?

Lifting one another up is a must. How can we not? We tend to get jealous of people’s success and forget to congratulate them, we see people sad and turn the other cheek, we see people going through the motions and we ignore. Why is that? It is mind-blogging to me that we as humans want others to lift us up when we need it most but get mad when no one comes to our rescue and don’t bother to lift us up and then you have the look of loneliness, and confusion upon your face. Lift UP your friend, neighbor, family, and a stranger because you will never know when you will need someone the most and by you lifting someone else up, you will lift yourself up as well.
