A New Beginning



So this is the first BLOG POST for my blog “Growth for the Living” I wanted to really just take that step forward and start this project. It has been something I’ve wanted to do for a while now but have been continuously waiting for the right moment. It’s a little nerve-racking to be honest but I know it is the next step of my journey and part of my mission. I wanted to create a space/environment that dipped off from social media for a second …where I could write as many words as I wanted and share videos and pictures and just further our human connection in this ever growing cyber world. That’s what we are put on this Earth to do: Learn & Uplift and I have just always felt it heavy on my heart to be as active in that mission as possible. That’s why I make the music I do. I truly want YOU to feel a CHARGE from the experience, the show, the music, and the message.

Sometimes I feel a little silly when I post on social media because something about it can feel so impersonal and I always yearn for a deeper connection. I hate to feel like I’m “half of myself” ..it’s not that I don’t get real…I just feel like I could do more to connect with you all and open avenues for dialogues & discussions and ultimately relation to one another on a realer level. I have so many thoughts and feelings on a daily basis that I tell those around me but I don’t take the time to share it online with you all. I guess I have psyched myself out quite a few times because my question always is, “Who would want to read what you think anyways?” I don’t want to sound like a broken record or a run on sentence but I know there are some people who post certain things that I DON’T care about etc. So I never want to be that person… BUT I believe in the power of what I may have to say. For my entire existence I have been an analyzer of my environment, my feelings, my thoughts, and my actions…constantly reflecting and analyzing, analyzing and reflecting….searching for connections through my struggles & obstacles, whose in my life and how they got there…..so many people I’ve met just so I could meet someone else through them who was ultimately why the first person was in my path in the first place. To quote one of my favorite artists Hopsin’s song “Ill Mind of Hopsin 8”

Change is one of the most difficult things that we face
But change is inevitable
One reason we don’t like change
Is we get comfortable where we are
We get used to our friends, our job, the place we live
And even if it’s not perfect we accept it, because it’s familiar
And what happens is, because we’re not willing to change
We get stuck in what God used to do
Instead of moving forward into what God is about to do
Just because God’s blessed you where you are
Doesn’t mean you can just sit back and settle there
You have to stay open to what God is doing now
What worked five years ago may not work today
If you’re going to be successful
You have to be willing to change
Every blessing is not supposed to be permanent
Every provision is not supposed to last forever
We should constantly evaluate our friendships
Who’s speaking into your life?
Who are you depending on?
Make sure they're not dragging you down
Limiting you from blossoming
Everybody is not supposed to be in our life forever
If you don't get rid of the wrong friends
You will never meet the right friends

It blows my mind how aligned we are Hopsin and I (*SHOUTOUT*) In saying all of that – I am so excited to start connecting with you all through this blog and let you into my daily mind…My mission is EMPOWERMENT. I stand for the Warrior Mentality, and the power of destiny and imagination and riding the waves of the resistant energy TOGETHER. What I want to challenge is YOUR PERSPECTIVES. Excite your mind to OPEN and Question the source of things you may feel very strongly about…. I want to share some of the mental tips I use to get through things and discuss and analyze THIS REALITY in ALL SPECTRUMS. Consider this an invitation to regain your freedom and deprogram yourself from what does not serve you. CLEAN OUT THAT CLOSET and shed that old skin because we’re going in deep to the future and that means a change of clothes, a change of thought, and sometimes a change of underwear. (seriously such a joke. Not necessarily my vibe either but it is too perfect and actually funny so I’m leaving it)

Life is a wave and we’re all riding it. This is the Human Experience. There is nothing in this realm of reality that should ever control our views, our feelings, manipulate and infect our young minds like bacteria (Where is the Love//Black Eyed Peas) so much so that it interferes with our love for one another.

In the Age of the Social, with being connected on a global scale and having all of this access – we need to make sure we take precautions to stay aware & stay grounded ..Rooted within ourselves.

I look forward to growing with you. I look forward to raising our vibrations and elevating our minds to new heights TOGETHER! Lets just have a conversation!

I will be OFFICIALLY launching this BLOG – MAY 1st – in celebration of my “Dinosaur” Music Video dropping THAT SAME DAY!! So - lots to celebrate!! Along with this blog I will be launching a Vlog on my Youtube Channel &  possibly a podcast as well…Let me know your thoughts on how often you think you would be interested in seeing a post…once a month? Every other Wednesday? You let me know!
