Change & Growth




My appointment is late so I walked over to Slice to clear my mind and have a beer...I'm thinking about my life and how I have grown as a man...I have lose lots of friends from this thing we call "Life". Some in jail, some lose their way to the streets, and some just gave up on their dreams...seeing people just sitting around wasting time like time is on their side pisses me off...peope act like change, growth, and following your dreams is hard to do....you rather sit on your ass and waiting for me to help you? Are you afraid to fail?...I watched my mother work and hustle her ass off for 4 children...my dad wasn't around so I turned to the streets like most black males do... Looking for my father figure, but I always had a dream.. And I failed on my dream many times but I got back up and never gave up...I'm an honest person and sometimes I want to give up on people around me...if i'm HUNGRY then I know you hungry nigga...we all have different dreams but it's the same struggle... I'm not rich I'm still chasing my dreams...are you? Or are you waiting for me to feed you? How can you believe in a person who do not grow? How can you believe in a person who will not make the first step towards their dreams? If I can grow anyone can grow... I'm not a city boy... I'm from country ass Asheville NC and I'm a warrior...grow, change, and don't be afraid of failure....I'm still hungry yall.... I want the world.... Do you? You should... YOU deserve it

I really like this Miya...well said and very true....a lot of ppl give up on their dreams in fear of failure or they feel like they can't do it. I was just saying the other day that there is no such thing as "can't" anyone who believes in themself CAN make all their dreams come true. :)

You've said a mouthful there and then some. I see alot of ppl stay complacent,lose hope, and become stagnant. Ppl need to understand that they truly don't need any one but belief in themselves and in the most High every thing and every one comes secondary. You just gotta keep on pushing. Nothing in life comes for free, you gotta take. If you want it bad enough it will come.

I can appreciate that you shared your thought and your feelings. Most folks tend to give some superficial presentation of who they are or always want to have that likeability factor. Always wanting someone to like what they have to say. Sometimes I actually feel that i must be the horrible cat in the world thinking I'm tired of encouraging the next person. I spend my day pouring into lost lives,dead eyes, dreams deferred, and dreams that seemed denied. Yet I know SOMEONE has to do it. What the difference between your drug infested house and my cocaine addicted parents? I said "I don't want this sh--"! There was nothing that could keep me from living that life, re-experiencing those traumas. No i'm not perfect and darn sure am not where I want to be, but God's grace has gotten us to where we are. We are honest enough to admit we fear failure, but smart enough to know that we are bigger than our fears. Thanks Miya for being a person...like the rest of us -Mish

Yo Miya, I just wanted you to know I'm printing this out and placing it beside my mirror. I felt like it was for me at this stage in my life. I've been in a funk for too long. Be easy man. This is Ivan AKA Ynobei from the old BadBoyCreations forum. Peace.
