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!

The World Is So GOOD at “REJECTING!”

………………because that is what the world knows the best.

The world has rejecting down to a science.

You’d think that with all that this world has to offer to a person that rejection would be the last action on the list, but the world would rather accept those who pay or sacrifice a major price then accept a man or woman for their genuine talent and that’s it.

Its the ulterior motives, the disclaimers, the what are you going to do for me, the what are you going to give up, the limitations unless…….and if you don’t, well, go kick rocks.

You have to give up something that is valuable and/or precious to you. In some cases, sometimes what is being asked of you is your very soul. This is the price in most cases for not being rejected. What are you willing to do and how far are you willing to go to achieve what you desire most in this world?

SMH. The world knows you, knows me, knows us too well. Now, I’m not saying that in some scenarios this may not be true, but there is always some type of price no matter how big or how small.

It could be in the forms of politics, popularity, money, time, sex (including oral), an intangible, a tangible, signing your life and/or your work away, selling your soul, going against your morals or standards, you get the point.

You see, the world’s goal is to squeeze every ounce of innocence out of you, to see how far you will go, to see how much you can take before you break and then comes the back stabbing or vessels to remind you all that you did to get to where you are, focusing mainly on the negative, the bad and the ugly. Think about some of your favorite actors, artists, entertainers and/or celebrities in general. And if you have followed these big time names/people since they first came out, you can see in most of them if not all of them, the 360 change in who they are from when they first came out on the scene.

The influences and pressures of the world have the ability to manipulate who you are and what you will become if granted the blessings of the world. The world wants to take you and mold you into something else. What that is? Well, it varies with each person.

See, we all came to this world as babies. We were ourselves, but as we lived and grew up in this world and created goals and fought for what we believed in, as we matured and formed attitudes and strong emotions and passions and a love for what we did and what we were good at, the world was there witnessing it all. Taking us through different things, creating obstacles to block us from what was to be ours to begin with. Haters were going toe to toe with us. They talked about us behind our backs. We were not liked for the beautiful gifts we possessed. Yes, the world was jealous of us, ever since we were born.

They saw our gifts and our youth and innocence and because we have it compared to those that don’t have it or at one point had it but now they don’t, the world rejects us. Favoritism, politics, money, power and darkness became the ally of the world. They became one. They loved each other so much and understood they had something. They read each others minds and so therefore they were linked.

They made a pack with each other against those that with their gift and having none of the features of the world’s allies, that getting somewhere would be at the mercy of the gate keeper(s).

Did you know that the World is a living organism? Well, guess what, it is. Think of the World as an actual person, a human being. It has the capabilities that any other human has, but it has something else too. It operates as an entity. It has the strengths of both subjects, but the weakness of an entity. It relies on natural and physical elements and chooses not to feel unless it is of close ties with the its allies.

REJECTION!

That is its first nature, its first love. The World is so quick to reject because its just that easy. The World is going to be aight, its going to sustain, its going to make its money and replenish and grow stronger as those beneath it grow weaker. The World wants you and me to ask it for something so that it has the pleasure to say, “No!”

It makes it feel more like a macho man, like it is in power, its in control. What are you going to do? Some people will actually do nothing. They will shake they’re heads, “Yes,” and go back to the norm. And then you have those who fight to the death to the very end, who find it within themselves that rejection will not be accepted nor will it be the last say to their dreams. What do you do when you get knocked down? Do you stay down or do you get back up and do it again.”

What will rejection do to you?

The World has already preconceived what it will do. It is a brick wall. It won’t knock itself down unless you knock it down. This my friend is about character. What will you do when you face adversity?

I Hate the Title, “Artist”

Its one of those things where, I hate it so much I love it. Literally.

There’s a couple of ways on how you can look at it because the title “artist” has so many definitions. Its not just one thing, but many things.

I actually meant it in the sense of music, but you can look at it in different ways.

The frustrating thing to me about this title is that many people devalue it if its not on a respectable level. That’s the crazy thing about being an artist. Having that title doesn’t seem to hold much weight. Sometimes I feel like its looked at as a joke.

Henceforth, the saying, “the starving artist”. It can at times be on the same playing field as a homeless person.

That’s pretty low, but I think its safe to say that no one wants the slightest idea of, let alone the actual title of being, “homeless”.

These points can both be said about the visual artist and the musician/band artist. Without the buzz, the attention, the money backing you, the popularity etc., being an “Artist” can be the worst thing on the planet.

These are the elements, in which are needed for one with the title, “artist”, should have. Its a must. You are displaying an art, your creativity, your concept of beauty.

Artists thrive from the love of the people, the masses.

I love art and I have much respect for artists. Its not an easy thing to have that title. Talk about going through so much hate just to get to the love. Especially nowadays. Supporting that title is not as feasible as it has been in past years.

People are hesitant when it comes to supporting this profession. People can buy a $5 mocha from Starbucks, but can’t or refuse to spend a $1 on itunes to support an artist.

Artists these days have to pay to perform when they are providing a service which is entertainment. Artists should be getting paid for this service.

People don’t realize how much work goes into putting a stellar song together, from production to writing the lyrics to studio time. Then more work is put in to rehearse the performance. Then wardrobe and image is a huge factor. An artist must play their role, their character.

Then there’s the matter of transportation, promoting, getting your name out there. Major marketing is involved. All of these features are not cheap. There are other things as well, but I think these are the main characteristics.

It makes you hate it just thinking about it. This title is different from other titles or at least what comes with it. With this title, you don’t have to have a degree. With other titles that are treated more prestigious, a degree is required in most cases and a combination of experience. Talent alone is disguised by knowledge, unlike “Artist”, talent is open with creativity and we all know that art is objective.

A hard truth. You have to break out of it. There is much love in the title, but the same love that comes with it, is the same love that makes you hate it.

Why Fried Chicken Loves Me!!!

20121208-234006.jpg

…………………because in actuality, it hates me with a passion.

You see, fried chicken tried to kill me from the inside, out.

I was 10 years old and my peoples watched me eat the fried chicken and they laughed at me.

My face started to break out and disfigure much like the Hunchback of Notre Dame and still they laughed at me.

I was eating my fried chicken and scratching every bump and lump that formed on my skin. This is what you call a serious reaction or food allergy.

Was I scared? Naw, I wasn’t scared.

Was I crazy? Yea, a little bit

It was so good. It rejected me without cause, but you know what I did?

I broke it! It took some years, but I broke it. I worked on it and it had no choice but to come to terms with my immune system.

I could of pressed charges against fried chicken, coulda put it away for life. But rehab was the answer. There was a new found love that fried chicken had developed for me.

It saw that through the attempted murder, torture, malice and malcontent that I still had love in my heart for it.

I killed fried chicken with kindness.

It was too much beauty for it to handle. My purity & goodness would not budge. I would not give into bitterness and hatred and grudges.

I knew I was better than that. That if I could just show fried chicken that all I desired was peace and tranquility, that it would love me the same way as I loved it.

And let me tell you, God mended our relationship. And since the breakthrough, we haven’t had not one problem. I had no more fatal reactions. Fried chicken started laughing with me instead of at me. It flowed through my system with ease, like water, but with a crunchy canyon texture.

It was beautiful.

Fried chicken loves me because I first loved it.

I’ll never forget our story and this is based on a true story, you can ask my Momma.

I wrote every word with a straight face. It is a testimony, I shall never forget.

But this is why fried chicken loves me. We went through, but we found healing and the light.

It wasn’t easy, but God knew all along what the end result would be.

He show did.

Tryna Figure it Out

I think its fair to say that we are all trying to figure this thing out.

The spiritual battles, the personal battles, the serious issues, the daily mistakes we make, the different relationships that we have………………………… on all levels.

All of it can just be confusing sometimes. I can completely understand where Marvin Gaye was coming from when he sung, “What’s Goin’ On”

I find myself asking the same thing and after awhile, my cerebrum just taps out. Its too much. I have other things in my life I have to worry about.

I think the main thing is, is just trusting God. Somethings in life are not meant to be answered. Some things in life are beyond our comprehension.

I know people have their different beliefs, but I am a believer in Jesus Christ, a believer in God. A believer in the trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holyghost.

Like everybody else, I have problems and flaws and mishaps, but I continue to strive to get better. I continue to try and cope with the daily minutia’s that transpire in my life.

Life has its ups and downs, but I think it helps to do my best in making good decisions, to take things easy, to choose my battles, to be slow to wrath, to practice positivity and most importantly to just pray about it.

Anybody can sit there and be mad at the world all day, but its just too stressful and uptight. I would hate to be like that all the time, day in and day out.

It is a fight, but its a fight going in the right direction, not the wrong direction.

Life should be enjoyed and be full of happiness. I know that statement sounds a little political, but theoretically, don’t you think it should be that way!!?? If not, that’s a new one.

There are many people out here with outstanding distinguished college degrees with fancy and noble titles and you know what, they don’t even have this thing totally figured out. They’ll make an effort to convince you, but titles and degrees do not grant you with how to figure life out.

I don’t care what anybody says.

People create books and have their credentials sharing their professional opinions, but they don’t have it. But, sometimes because you have that percentage of people who are making bread off their profession, it appears like they know what they’re talking about. They have the money, power and media to push it.

We’re all tryna figure this thing out. Someone may read this blog and disagree and strongly believe that they have this thing figured out. It is to each’s own. But no one life is the same to the next guy over. Each person has there walk and an intersectionality, in which they come from.

Don’t think too much into it. I don’t want anybody getting a stage fright freeze, but just be easy, positive and prayerful.

I know that God is with me at all times and that He does have this thing figured out. He will lead the way and if you believe, He will lead you as well. Everything else you can throw out the window.

The Storm Inside the Brain

The masses already know about the brainstorming, but very few know about the storm inside the brain.

Those that are diehard artists know about it, because the creativity can be overwhelming to the point that one is not able to apply the creation as fast as it is being thought up.

This is both on the right and the left side of the brain, but of course, moreso the right.

I am diagnosed with this symptom badly.

It is painful and it is peaceful. It is double sided.

It is literally like a forever going storm inside of you that effects your every being.

The creativity that flows inside my brain and transcends throughout my body is a whirlwind of natural disasters, in a good way of course. But it can often times cause my stress levels to go haywire.

Its in me too good, to well. I don’t despise it. The chaos and turmoil is beautiful. I guess that’s just what comes with the gift of artistry, creativity, imagination, dreaming big and fantasizing.

There is a deep love and passion within the storm.

And like every storm, there is an eye. A comforting peace that this beautiful gift will never run out. It is with you always. Its got your name on it.

I always say that, I have so much creativity that I could give some away and still have plenty left.

“Thats what you call creativity beyond its borders. It is an overflow of consistently breaking the rules, breaking the laws and getting away with it every single time. Talk about a guilty conscience.

It is an overflow of imperfection and perfection and you are stoned for both.

It is an overflow of having so much to offer and giving to the world of mankind and often times than not, being devalued, unappreciated, no and/or little respect.”

The storm is gratifying and in the same breath it is a curse. It is a steady reminder that the weathers are needed to bring flavor where it is flavorless, but also, despair, in the sense that it can be dark, lonely and secluded.

Isn’t it just beautiful. Now you can kind of relate to a crazy person.

And just in case you didn’t know, all artists are crazy, most in a good way, but I can’t speak for everyone.

I won’t. Some people’s craziness is on another level, beyond understanding.

But I can speak for mine and it is a creative sane craziness. The storm is a wild goose chase, but I do my best to keep it under raps and contained so that it doesn’t drive me too nuts.

Its a mad storm and it dwells inside my brain at all times. All I can seem to say is, “Thank You Lord!”
