I got a phone call yesterday from a friend. I was happy to hear from him since I haven’t spoken to him, personally, in probably a year. He was asking me about the site and some of my writings. I was happy about the conversation at first, until I realized he was judging me. It was quite funny. He asked me, “Are you trying to be a preacher or something?” I laughed and said, “I am far from a preacher.”
See this is the thing; I want to be a better individual on every level. I am no different from anyone else. I have my highs and lows. I have self doubt. Trust me; I know that the flesh is weak. I am no better than anyone. I fall short every day of my life. I sin in some form every day.
I struggle with music. My favorite song out right now is “No Worries” by Lil Wayne. I do not think people really listen to the words of that song; that is not something people should be glorifying. I love it though, as soon as it comes on the radio, I turn it up. I curse, maybe not as much as I use to, but I still do! Hey, I am trying to completely stop using the “N” word. If I don’t want people around me saying it, then I am not going to use it.
I am just like everyone else; learning that some of the things you grew up loving, believing was right is clearly not the way we should live our lives. Life is so beautiful. We have to be open minded. Read and meditate. Spend time learning things outside of your comfort zone.
People ask me “What are my goals?” I tell them, “To be better than I was the day before.” It is that simple for me. I am not trying to think about what happens 10-15 years from now; it is not promised to me. I am surely not at the place I thought I would be now 10 years ago. I am going to be great no matter what I am doing because I am a star. I really do not know exactly where I will be, that is up to God. Just watch it unfold.
Remember to Keep it GC,
