I've been playing around with several ideas for posts and I just decided, I'd do them all in one. The interesting thing is that they happen to be connected. Funny how that happens.
What's wrong with you
Are you lonely? Are you afraid? Are you looking for acceptance? Are you looking for fame? Are you looking to mend a broken heart? What's your deal? What are you here for? That's what I found myself asking me one day about me and you. I looked around and realized that I wasn't really like anyone else around here. Maybe that was the point. Maybe that is how it was supposed to be. But the problem with that was that I saw the circles everyone else was running in, and I wanted to be down, won't even lie, but I didn't see where I fit in. Then it hit me. I was never meant to fit in. I've been trying to do it my whole life. Trying to be a part of something. Trying to get accepted, and it never happens, eventually being me gets in the way. At the end of the day, I can never ride with the BS. Don't get me wrong, I've done my dirt, definitely my fair share, if doing dirt is fair, but I don't have the conscious for living whack. Blame it on the way I was raised. So again, I had to ask myself what was wrong with me. Why was I trying to be down when I should have been innovating? Innovators don't follow what's cool, they create what's cool. I'm not saying that like I got the big head or something. I'm just saying I finally realized that I need to take my place -- stop trying to be (apart of) and just BE (who I am).
So what about you, what's wrong with you? Cause as much as you are having fun, you are working through your stuff as well. The answers are there, but can you accept them?
I've been thinking a lot about what my last blog post would be like. I guess you can say after 17 months I've run the gamut and gotten a little tired/bored with the process. I've created a lot of material in these pages, over 300 posts, not to count what I did over here (another PUSH to be me). So, it's time for a new challenge. Time to create something unforgettable.
We appear out of nowhere and just like that we leave, but blogs are a record of our online existence. What will people remember about you when you are snatched out of the blogosphere. When it's your time to give up the ghost, what will they find in your pages? Will it be an accurate depiction? Will it be unflattering? Will you really give a shhhhhhhh.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's time to fade to black. Time to change the game.
