2. If you post more than one link, we will keep the 1st and delete the others, to keep a level playing field for all. No download links to your mixtape.

How I Learned to be Authentic

A mantra: My authentic self, is enough. I give freely and uphold my boundaries. I am free to be my most authentic me. I met a man who opened my eyes; different in almost every way. I think of the song “My Same” by Adele when he crosses my mind. He challenged my thought process, emotional process, and spiritual resilience in every way he knew how. He was my very best friend and a royal pain in the ass. It took a decade of passive aggressive arguments for the realization that changed how I relate to people. When I’m stuck in my pattern … Continue reading How I Learned to be Authentic

Real Love

You can love who you are Without ever offending anyone else… Well at least in my eyes Thats exactly how it is supposed to be… And Truth is, Theres nothing new here Cause hatred Is what success brings… But then who can We hold accountable And of that demographic Who cares enough to do Something about the madness… Passive Activists Moderately average Moderating patterns Of behaviors That supports The systematics Fuck your diplomatics… We have a hard enough time Staying sane as we maneuver Through the traffic, And ten years later, We find ourselves wondering what happened? We use to … Continue reading Real Love

It’s not enough to #hashtag your thoughts. We … Continue reading Pray for America…Pray for the world…Pray for all humankind

They Don’t Know About Those Sleepless Nights, Those Looking For A Reason Nights: A Story For The Dream Chasers

I have literally waited for over two years to tell you all this story. I had a vision as to how it would all play out from the very beginning and so I fought the urge to prematurely talk about what happened to me. I chose to be patient, trust my journey and let the story unfold. When I want something, I figure out a way to make it happen regardless of what my circumstance may be. So when I first met Nipsey Hussle back in 2015, it was no surprise to my friends and family. I focus on what … Continue reading They Don’t Know About Those Sleepless Nights, Those Looking For A Reason Nights: A Story For The Dream Chasers
