Today the 16th of March, i have been 30 for a month. I've done a lot of thinking...
And this is what I've come up with:
Coming out of my Neighborhood and making it to 30yrs Old I've beaten a shit load of Odds
-i survived to 18
-i graduated High School
-i went to College
-i survived to 21
-i have no children... that i know of, LOL
-i moved out of my neighborhood
-i've been out of the country for leisure(Europe)
-i've never been to Jail
-i've never been shot
-i've never been stabbed
-i left my NEST at 18(parent's house)
-i've never been addicted to drugs
-i've been homeless, self-sacrifice by choice to achieve something more, and come out on top
-i fly across the country an average of at least twice a month if not more on business
-i havent had a 9-5 or a Boss since i was 21.
-When i wake up in the morning, i do what i want, and i LOVE it.
-i've made a lot of money and spent it ALL!
-i've rubbed elbows with the people others could only Dream of meeting.
-i have been on Billboards and TV.
-i have simultaneously lived on both coasts holding down an apartment in NY & LA at the same time.
Outside of having children and getting married, i've done all in life that i have set out to do in some form or another. Now that i am 30, i have reached a chapter in life that i never even dreamed of. I never thought past 25, i just lived my life to the fullest and drove full throttle into this thing called life.
How could i complain about such a full live when im not even middle aged yet.
Now that i have achieved so much and am at the Next Chapter of LIFE, it is time to Buckle down once again and get to the Next level...
i love listening to Jay-Z, I feel like Jay understands me!
"he said wise up, how many guys a you see making it from here,
The world don’t like us, is that not clear, alright,
But I'm different, I can’t base what I'm gonna be off a what everybody isn’t,
They don’t listen, just whispering behind my back,
No vision, lack of ambition"
"...motivation for me, was them tellin me what i could not be."
"fear not much while we're alive
Life is for living not living uptight
Until you're somewhere up in the sky
Fear not die I'll be alive for a million years bye bye are not for legends I'm forever young my name shall survive
Through the darkest blocks, over kitchen stoves, over Pyrex pots, My name shall be passed down to generations while debatin' up in barber shops
Young slung, hung here, Showed that a nigga from here, With a little ambition, just what we can become here."
Now it's TIME for me to begin solidifying my American Icon status
until my next Post, Just remember i'm Shittin on the Game:
