No More Talkin’ 2 NONSENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean why!!!!!?????

The earth has already been thrown off its axis, meaning time is even shorter. And since then, my time just got more precious than ever. I’m not trying to waste anymore time than I already have for nonsense. It is too demanding of energy.

I can smell it a mile away now. I’m continuously living and learning. At some point in time enough has to be enough. That’s the crazy thing about nonsense, its like a knat that won’t go away. There’s so much nonsense out here that a majority of the time it gets overwhelming, its on overload, its a dumpster full of a whole lot of SH–, and more is on the way. It is a bunch of small things that slowly, but surely get bigger and make you wanna snap when the next person that comes up to you starts talkin’ nonsense.

And have you noticed that everybody seems to claim this so called, “Real Talk”? I mean seriously, that is so played out. “Real Talk” mingles so closely with “Fake Talk” these days. It is equivalent to a thin line between love and hate.

You would think that people would spend a multitude of their time talking and doing things that are a little bit more useful to make life easier. But I’ll tell you what the problem is, so many people are talking the big talk, but are not DOING the big talk. So many people are trying to LOOK like their doing Big things, but ARE NOT doing big things. So many people are so busy expending energy on putting on a facade and doing it in such a way where you are just flat out lying and/or misleading.

The name dropping game is a usual suspect. I don’t know how many times I’ve ran into this person and that person and they start name dropping like flies.

But the short version is, “I’m finished”. Its time to talk to people who are talking about something. I adopted this a long time ago by the way. Its time to start talking to people who are really about something. Its time to talk to people who are action people. Its time to talk to people that value what I bring to the table and I, them. No More Talkin’ 2 NONSENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its old, annoying, irritating, obnoxious, rude and disrespectful. Somebody out there right now is dealing with the nonsense. Somebody out there is not able to spot or recognize the nonsense. I’m warning you right now, it comes in all shapes and sizes.

I’m way bigger and better than that fluffery. I love myself too much to deal with it and put up with it. Some people are more tolerant than others on people like that, but I’m not. Honestly I just don’t understand it. Networking and working with people and staying up on my craft, bringing something valuable to the table is what I’m about. I’m always working towards reaching my goal and re-strategizing my approach if need be.

So, no more…………..No More Talkin’ 2 NONSENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY Talkin’ 2 SENSE!!!!!!!

What Should LOVE feel like!?

Let’s start with something easy………for one, it should feel good.

Not just according to the flesh or physically, but spiritually, mentally, emotionally, orally, metaphorically, figuratively and literally.

Love should feel like an abundance of peace and comfort.

Please don’t mistaken the word, “LOVE” for the word, “LUST”. 2 different things, 2 different entities and 2 different words that derive from 2 different sources.

Many people confuse these 2 terms as the same and they’re not. So, I just wanted to address that before I go any further.

In theory, “LOVE” should be & feel unconditional. It should feel light and natural like the air we breathe. The majority of the stress is positive stress. “LOVE” should feel like understanding and knowing that under any circumstances that love purposely will not harm you. The approach is patient and kind. Envious and keeping track of wrongs and holding grudges is not how love should feel.

Love should feel good. Okay, then what is good?

According to Dictionary.com
1. morally excellent; virtuous; righteous
2. satisfactory in quality, quantity, or degree
3. of high quality; excellent.

You know how “LOVE” should feel. So, does it actually feel to you on a daily basis? Does how it should feel match up to how it actually is?

Be EDUCATED!!! For Your Sake!

You don’t need to plead the 5th. It’s not a crime nor something that you should be ashamed of if you get it.

Being educated isn’t just about going to school everyday to learn nothing. It seems like that, I know, but it’s really not. Trust me when I say this, you want to be educated and not just from K thru 12.

Learn & absorb all you can for your sake, for peace of mind, for the sake of knowing what’s going on in the world, on this planet, from a consumer and business point of view. The world is always changing, trends come & go. You must know how to change and adjust with it.

Technology and people are evolving. And the most important thing you should know is being educated decreases the chances and opportunities for someone to take advantage of you. That to me is probably the most important thing out of all things.

The more you know about what’s going on out here the better. Do your research. If you don’t know how, learn. Look things up on the Internet. The Internet is a valuable resource of a multitude of information. Ask questions, but before you do, try and find out the answer yourself. Self sufficiency is significant as well.

You want to have the ability to do for yourself moreso than anything. It’s obvious you can’t do all things yourself but you want to have solid basic knowledge in many different areas.

Be educated for your sake. Nobody likes to be taken advantaged of. Nobody likes to be cheated, nobody likes to be left hanging. Knowledge isn’t just power for no reason.

If you can apply that, then it becomes something else entirely, wisdom!

I Ain’t Tryna BUG NOBODY, I Shouldn’t Have To!

I’m valid and credible and I prove myself every single time! Bugging someone isn’t my style, it never has been. For some people its a tactic, but not for me. If you are genuinely GREAT at multiple things, why should you!?

Its called, keepin’ it movin’! The right person and the right people will see the fruits of your labor. They will see the dynamics of what you do. They will marvel at your worth. They will flock to you. They will come. They will show interest in you through their actions not just talk. They will display it publicly and not because you asked them to, demanded them to or told them to.

I will continue to put it out there, what I do and remind people just how cold I am. This isn’t an ego, or boasting or a self-centered attitude. This is a confidence thing and using this God-given talent of mine and sharing it with the world. I’ve heard so many stories on people calling and texting and emailing like crazy to people for all kinds of reasons and it shouldn’t be like that. If you put it out there, people should respect you enough to come to you. And in doing that you just filter through the ones who are about something and the ones who aren’t. REMEMBER: ACTION!!!!!! Speaks louder than words!!!!!

Yo, I’m a songwriter, a hooper, vocal producer, vocal arranger, model, visual artist, stepper and of course a writer. I love what I do and I love who I am! I ain’t tryna bug nobody, I’m just doing me. That’s what I do!

U Just Might Learn Something’ If U “LISTEN!!!!”

But maybe you won’t learn nothin’, cuz you already know everything………right!!!??

You are an expert on life and you have the formula down to a science. Why should you listen?

Other than the fact that listening could save your life, one, is submitting to welcoming in growth and development, learning from past mistakes, addressing weaknesses and flaws.

You know people often forget the power of listening. People know the power of speaking. 9 times out of ten, most people are quick to speak and shun the listening part. But listening is just as important if not more important than the speaking side of the laws of communication. Just like speaking and articulating is a muscle that is so popularly used by the human specie, so is listening.

Many people are not good at it. It takes practice and sometimes you have to be silly about it just so that people can understand it a little better. Silly like that stupid recording that ESPN replays of Allen Iverson’s press conference on “Practice!” Someone is bound to get offended, but its true. Sometimes it takes some silliness just to get the point across. I think we can all agree that no one likes to be clowned.

I took a listening class in college and I have to say, it was quite engaging. When I first saw it in the curriculum catalog, I was intrigued that the subject of listening was an actual class. I was very much interested in improving my listening skills. There was one thing that stuck out to me though. A quote that I love and still use to this day.

“From listening comes wisdom and from speaking comes repentance!”

From listening comes the application of knowledge, not just knowledge. The knowledge can be applied to real life and it becomes something else entirely. That’s what I want. Listening takes you to a whole new level of communication. It is an action word where your brain interprets the information that is being supplied to you or that you are observing and then doing something with it. Through listening one, is always gaining and retaining like a sponge. Through listening it is like a computer being uploaded with new software.

Your mind and perception is growing. It is being opened up. It is opening up to understanding people, the way things are, being aware, expanding critical thinking, investigating deeper when it comes to problem solving. It’s another metamorphosis of the concept, “mind over body.”

In speaking, talking, chatting, gossiping, and anything else along those lines, not in all cases, but in most cases, people end up repenting or regretting things that they say. We have all been guilty of this. But even so, those who have learned from this bad habit and seed, have probably focused in a little bit more on listening, strengthening that muscle. It doesn’t come over night, especially if you’re use to talking someone’s ear off.

Those people who have learned, have grasped the importance of listening. You should try it, if you haven’t and I’m talking about the real trying where you are making an effort to shun that jump to, speaking impulses. Hey, you just might learn something. You just might move up that latter more efficiently in maturation. It just might save you from self-destruction. It just might remind you how beautiful it is to not speak and to just steadfast and be silent.

It isn’t a bad thing. So don’t look at it that way. Take pride in listening. You don’t have to listen to me, but try listening to your loved ones. Really take in what they are saying. Try listening to the people you hang around. Once you start listening you may find out a whole lot more about the people you hang with than that which is on the surface. You may learn something you didn’t know or never knew about a person and because you started listening and interpreting that information, it opened your eyes. It opened your heart. It made you aware of what’s really going on.

You just might learn something if you just listen!

So, Whose Got Yo Back!?

Well other than God and Jesus, I’d like to think, loved ones.

But its not like that for everyone.

When we sit and think about who really has our back, some people say they Momma, they Daddy, they sister, they brother, the god parent, they Auntie, they Uncle, you get the picture.

But nowadays its really hard to really say who has your back until you really go through something that brings you to your lowest point in life.

Theoretically, blood is suppose to always have your back, but we have all seen that this in most cases is NOT true. Sometimes your blood will be the first if not the second to turn their back on you when you hit that major pickle and sometimes the minor ones too. It just all depends.

Everyone would like to believe that blood has your back. But really its like tossing up a coin and hoping that they will be there for you. Nothing is for certain these days. Its the hard truth of life.

People talk about it all the time, mention it on twitter, comment on it on facebook and post pics on Instagram that “I am not perfect,” “I fail daily,” We as people and human beings know this, but still, with that knowledge, people often fall to the forgetfulness of that truth when someone gets into trouble or is going through really tough times.

People begin to condemn and throw stones, talk bad about that person instead of uplifting that person through the known and unknown trial. People make it a point to just make a man feel lower than what his or her predicament already has him or her in. Its really sad when you think about it.

And then those same people want to come back with that same truth of, “I am not perfect,” “I fail daily.” Talk about contradicting. I see it all the time. So, I know someone else does too.

Knowing who really has your back though is important. There are signs that can let you know, such as the minor signs. You gotta know who really supports you when it is all said and done. At some point in our lives we all have some type of situation where we need help or depend on someone to come through.

Don’t deny this. Think very hard before you disagree with that statement. I’d like to think that those who are reading this now, you were once a baby!!!!!!

Listen to the signs, pay attention to your surroundings. Their are clues, signs and messages that advertise this question on a daily basis. You have a right to know this and don’t dare think its a one way ticket. Whose back do you have!?

When People Look Atchu Funny………….

Just look at them funny back.

Rude cancels out rude, it’s just like math. Reciprocate it with class!

They won’t get mad at you or anything. They can’t. You don’t even have to dwell on it. Just keep going. All kinds of distractions will come and try to plague you, your mind, your body, your spirit. But you are better for it. They are challenges that come to help strengthen you. It’s all about how you perceive it, how you handle it, how you take it.

Just be easy. Don’t let a person declare power and dominion over you by letting them control you, control your day and allow you to take speak void words that act as a poison to your being. Don’t even waste your breath, utilize it for something beautiful.

That’s how you look at them funny back, by killing them with kindness, by showing them that you are way BIGGER than someone’s funny lookin’ face. You get grown with them, where, that’s all they can do is look atchu funny, but that’s it, nothing else. They seek your reaction and attention as ultimate glory. They triumph in the way it makes you feel in a negative way.

When people look atchu funny, it is because you do walk the way you walk, talk the way you talk and why you possess what was given to you by a higher being. Then again, it could be just to be nasty. You have those characters out there as well, just lurking around to pose their bitterness and sourness on others.

When people look atchu funny, just know that you have done your job. You received from them what they couldn’t get from you. The fact that they even bothered to make a funny face is a compliment. They noticed you. They gave you attention. You weren’t expecting it, but it came to you in the coolest way.

So just be sure to say,  “Thank you! Thank you for your funny expression and the words that followed behind it, it was beautiful. It was touching. You made me feel like a star! I am that much more closer of accomplishing my goals.” How!!!?? Because you gave me more ammunition!
