I am learning so much lately!
One of the most important things that I remind myself of daily that keeps me sane is acceptance.
I’m learning to accept my life, and the people in it for exactly what it is. Not what it used to be, not how I want it to be but how it is right now. It makes stress go away. It makes me feel better.
I apply this to my ex-boyfriend, my mother, my hair, and most importantly where I am with my life.
I’m not where I thought I’d be, or even where I want to be, but I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be and I’m growing in that acknowledgement.
One of my pet peeves is scrolling down any of my social network profiles and seeing share/post this of you love god and my mind goes wild.
The post does not define my faith.
God knows how I feel because I thank him for everything. From me opening my eyes to me being able to tie my shoe. I don’t have to post anything because my faith is written all over me. I thank him for the food I eat. I thank him for the people in my life. I thank him for all my experiences, my opportunities, my heartbreaks, my failures, my setbacks. I thank him for it all because he deserves more than I can give. I’ll be damned if I let some post of a white washed Jesus dictate my faith.
Ok I’m not a fan but I’m about to play both sides of this argument.
What she does is similar to what T.I. does. Yes he used to trap, and all that “gangster” stuff but he doesn’t anymore and he’s married. Which means his new song is a lie “No Mediocre” talks about him being promiscuous, he has a reality show and we see that it’s not true. A lot of rappers do it, they elongate and exaggerate the lives they used to live. And the difference of course is that he actually did do those things (I’d like to believe that) but he doesn’t anymore.
So maybe with Iggy he thought He could do the same thing. Stretch a little, lie a little and twang up her voice.
So here’s the big picture that everyone seems to be missing, she’s making fun of us. This is how she views hip hop and this is what she thinks represents the listeners. Just like the Daquan memes that are surfacing . They are making fun of us, but most of us don’t realize that.
I do not speak for my entire culture or the people in it but I know more than a fat ass and some weave, I’m more than a name brand. I need substance to keep me entertained and that doesn’t cut it.
This is just a warning I have so many things on my mind and I’m about to write them out.
