I don't wanna brag... but I'll be

"Can't spend your whole life tryna get high...
Get up, get out, and do something
Don't let the days of your life pass you by..."
-Macy Gray "Do Something"


Leading up to 2012, everyone was deeply concerned with Doomsday and the world ending. However, what psychics and spiritual folks were saying it's more of a personal dramatic change than a literal ending of the world.

My opinion on the world ending?

So yeah... we've passed the multitude of Doomsday dates, still here in 2013. I'm inclined to think it is a personal enlightening period. For my own self and those around me, I'm seeing people being placed in situations that's forcing them to do something about it and/or bring about change/growth. While some people choose to remain in denial, I believe these have been the most obvious of life's nudges to do something about something... And that's cool too,  it's hard livin' that looks easy but some people are comfy with their lives like that. Don't judge. For those embracing the changes to betterment, kudos.

However, if you ever chose to believe in signs and ever needed one, if you're waiting for a sign, this is it. Open your eyes, they are all around you too.

I find since this year commenced, everyday has brought me closer to knowing what I want for myself and identifying what I don't want. As fate would have it, last night my mother fenced me into a conversation about her church service but it was most ironic. Another "sign" so to speak. Her Palm Sunday service spoke about this coming week being about Holy week and Jesus' sacrifice... and the importance it is for us to have a life mission statement and to know what we want and expect out of our lives. It isn't enough to just sail through without a purpose, each day fading into the other.

Seems to be the theme for the year thus far.

What is your life's purpose? Your mission statement? And what steps have you outlined that need to be done to achieve it... and when do you plan to start taking those steps forward. 

I remember Les Brown's story in one of his speeches about the importance of dreams. I'm uncertain if I've written about it before but... 

He says people worry and wonder about who will come to their funeral, who truly cared, etc. But what if we thought of all our dreams coming to our funeral, surrounding our caskets, lamenting about how they came to you... because they saw your potential to make it happen and you were the only one they had faith in. But now... they're going to die with you... disappointed, unfulfilled, let down.

Is your life going to be a testimony of personal success while your alive? Or is your death going to be a meaningful contribution to the cemeteries wealth of rich ideas unfulfilled?


Chew on that 'til I post next...

I think I was a revolutionary in a past life.


I'm trying my best to post frequently and continuously falling behind. Humblest apologies folks... On the downside, I'm barely doing anything exciting in the outside world beyond school and work right now. On the upside, I've been privileged to be continuously experiencing life lessons and witnessing those of others that I, along with Sher, have ended up coming up with interesting social issue questions... the genius kind you wish you came up with back when you were in college trying to come up with a genius topic question. Then again, with life comes experiences and wisdom... and then you stop seeking answers and start trying to ask the right questions.

It's funny how that old adage "With age, comes wisdom" seems to ring true. I remember my dear Literature professor used to drill into us the necessity of designing the correct question. However, fresh out of high school, our impulses were to be provided with solutions - it was what we were taught our whole lives. Listen to what you've been told, accept to be true, repeat. Then along came Mr. Adams trying to instill into us coming up with a solution is not nearly as important as designing and understanding the real question. The question operates as the beginnings of a map so to speak or your "true north" to guide you towards an answer. Without it, how do you really know what you're looking for.

It's not enough to want answers and to demand it, you must know what you seek of first in its truest sense as possible.
