Religion is something I don’t really like to speak on because in today’s world everyone seems to have their own opinion about someone else’s beliefs. So just to put everything on the table, no I don’t believe in a single religion. It’s not because I have anything against them it’s just my own beliefs and a part of who I am. I’ve always felt that religion tears people apart from the real purpose of our existence; the well beings of every living organism on this planet. Just because someone doesnt believe in a “god” it doesnt make them any less of a person than you. The real reason for our existence is to love one another deeply, not to have some belief tear us apart.
At this second, what is holding you back from accomplishing what you desire? Bills? Money? Time? Work? Those all sound like valuable excuses, but are they really? Or are you the one that’s holding yourself back? Because if you really wanted to achieve something, wouldn’t you make the impossible possible? You’re probably thinking right now, well I have priorities. But isn’t living life a priority?
We live in a society that praises selflessness and giving. So much so, that when we picture someone who is selfish, we tend to reduce them to an image of greed, lack of gratitude and all out grinch.
The more I emerge myself into the writing world, the more I see this topic of conversation come up. Being an author is a very interesting path. You meet hundreds of individuals who one day hope to share their work with the world and/or have the dreams of becoming the next New York Times Best Selling author. People dedicate their whole lives to this work of art and I honestly think it is very under appreciated the level of dedication some authors have. Working day and night just to have their stories told and the levels of stress that they go through just to put a story together.
This is something I’ve been meaning to write for a very long time. It’s hard to sit down and write my Top 11 greatest hip-hop albums of all time because they change often. But over the years I’ve noticed more and more which albums really resonate with me and the culture. It’s impossible to try and really categorize a list of the 11 best hip-hop albums of all time because every person has their own personal opinion. These opinions range from generations, ethnicity, location, and whole bunch of other categories.
We all have a story. Each story is special and unique from the 7 billion people on this earth. But somehow they’re all connect to one another. Throughout our life time we’ll meet thousands of individuals and our story will connect with theirs. We will change something about that one person we meet, even if it’s something as small as giving them a simple smile. Although this screen separates you and I, we share a bond within these words.
