There is something in the back of our heads, as well as some of the people we associate ourselves with that seem to try to inform us, that if we do not make it to the place we seek by a certain time we should stop trying. NO! Continue to Continue because you never know. Everything is not geared to the young, and everything is not geared to the wealthy. There is a platform for everyone. If you Continue to Continue, there is someone somewhere that will see your determination and decide to give you a hand. They will see that you are not going to stop, you are not going to quit, you won't to take "no" for an answer, and you won't fall victim to your circumstances. They will see that you are going to Continue to Continue. You may have to change some things, remove some people, rethink your plan, and change your thought patterns, but you will Continue to Continue. Because if you do, the chances that you will make it become greater. No matter the age, no matter the place, no matter the station in life that you find yourself in. If you have a French fry budget, keep working with that French fry budget. If you Continue to Continue, one day you just might own the French fry company. Tell this to yourself, as I had to tell myself: branch out into avenues that seem foreign, look into places that others would tell you not to tread, move your mind to the place that will allow you to do what it takes to get you to where you want to be, and when it happens, you can look back not with a "WHAT IF" mindset, but with an "I'M GLAD I DID" one! In the MORNING, Continue to Continue; in the MID DAY, Continue to Continue; in the MIDNIGHT HOURS, Continue to Continue. God's got somebody who will see you, help you, and believe in you. YOUR job is to CONTINUE to CONTINUE . . .
I watch the actions of people, and I see how they think that they have bettered themselves by hurting you. I have found that LIFE is a very funny thing and it has a way of breaking you. Be careful of the bridges that you burn, because even if you have the chance to rebuild them, they won't be the same bridges you once knew them to be. Though the bridge looks stable, it may not be. Don't hurt others to advance yourself because the very person you scar may be the only person that has the ability and insight to help you put the broken pieces of YOUR LIFE back together. You never, never know how a thing will turn out, so watch your actions.
There comes a point in life when you must ask yourself, for whom am I living? For whom am I existing? For what reason do I do what I do? You must be able to answer those questions honestly, without thinking about them. Your path is your path, and we must understand that there is a difference in knowing the path and walking the path. Plot your course and strive to reach your destiny, no matter the price. Reach that destiny, because at the end of the day it is YOUR DESTINY, and if you miss it, then the blame lies only on you.
In the interim of life, we face a lot of things. I have found out that it is not what things we face, but how we face those things that will determine a positive or negative outcome. I have often said this: "If you do what you've always done, you will get what you've always gotten." You cannot expect a different outcome when you use the same tactics, because it's just not possible. What is the answer you say: change your STRATEGY.
Life's Mission Statement: Do what you love. If you are not in the position to do what you love, love what you do until the time presents itself. For if you do what you do to the best of your ability, you will have no regrets about what you have done when the opportunity for your dream to be realized arises.
My MUSIC is of this caliber. I write the "Music You Love To Feel". I try to place myself in the position of how I would react; what would I think; what would I do. Many people go through similar, if not the same, situations when it comes to family, relationships, and life in general. I try to write what the heart feels and wants to say, even when it does not come out of the mouth. We all hurt, anguish, suffer, feel pain emotionally and physically. We pray about our situations and sometimes have to make some hard decisions, but when you make that decision support that decision because you made it. Remember to make the decision for yourself, not for others. If you look deep within, even though you have heard others say it, you really and truly know what you must do for yourself.
As we move about in this thing we call life, do we really consider how we touch people, how we influence people, how our actions and words impact others? Do we really think about how our words and actions may be the factors by which someone makes a course altering decision? A lot of times I think, "not simply," because if we did, what we do may be done differently. Life is more than just your area, your surroundings, your space, your feelings, your thing; it is more than just you. It is about the much larger picture that we must sometimes consider, because you never know who is hanging on your every word, watching your every move, waiting to see what you will do next before they make a move. So consider the IMPACT, specifically YOU IMPACT.
I think about many things when I write: how I felt (impact), what I have been through (impact), will my words make someone think (impact), will they make a difference (impact), will this piece of music speak to the listener's heart and soul (impact)? Will it help answer that question, speak to that situation, help make that decision, talk to that need, console that heart, and/or speak to that mind? Will it have an impact? I would hope it does and that is why I write the Music You Love to Feel: because I want to have an IMPACT!
We are in the middle of grave unrest in our nation. Police brutality, politicians causing upheaval, and racial and economic division. People's lives seem not to matter. Those that wish to hold others down and make them seem inferior cannot, and will no longer, be tolerated. No one is moving with compassion to help those who suffer from COVID-19. We have our democracy run by politicians who place their political ambitions over the lives of the people of the NATION though they are supposed to be governing and protecting. If things do not change, if we do not begin to earnestly pray for leaders who will lead and govern and elect people who will return what we know as democracy to its rightful place in this society, there will be no society left.
Simply put: it is time for change, real change. A coming together change. We need it now, and in order for it to happen, CHANGE needs us!
