New Years Eve

So, today, is not only New Years Eve but also caps off my 21st consecutive day of work. Last new years I was alone in my room half asleep. While my entire family downstairs was cheering and blowing horns. ha. This year I get to join my girlfriends family for their festivities. 2011 was a good year. And it picked up at in the final months. After a year or so lost in dead end jobs, scraping every penny off the ground, hustling my photography.. I finally found a good spot to settle in. Two amazing jobs. Two even more amazing parents. One big amazing family. Amazing girlfriend. Amazing God. I don't think I could have asked for any more in the past year. I don't think I could ask for anymore for the future, but for it to continue being amazing. It's going to be a bigger year in 2012. Got a lot of plans and projects to share with everyone. Happy New Years. - God is Love

Notes 9 "In the year 2010"

In the year 2010, I blogged 115 posts. This year I blogged.. 65 and still counting. Last year at this time I told my friend Due that I wanted to double my posts for 2011. Well, unless I want to keep punching out blogs for the next 10 days, I'd be well on my way. But after reading almost all of my blog posts from the past year, I feel really happy about writing a lot less. My blogs from past years were almost all about love, and heartbreak and relationships and blah blah. Not saying that they weren't good. My feelings have changed when writing about the one I love. You know that phrase "This is an A and B conversation, so you can C your way out of it". That's how I thought about writing about, well, my love. I feel like when you let that 'C' into your conversation, or in a part of your life that only requires that 'A' and 'B', thats when it goes 'D'. D stands for "Down". And goes Down to 'E'. Which stands for "End". That may be why celebrities have struggles with holding onto marriages. Because the whole world knows about all their business. Which is why I had stopped directly blogging and talking about my relationship with my lady. No one needs to know the business of you and your partner in love but you and that person. And God. I have no emotion to write about my relationship but happiness. And, me blogging about how happy I am isn't very useful. ha. Anyway, moral of the story... You don't need anyones help, to figure out your relationship. - God is Love

Notes 8 "Why I want to become famous"

If I say something, no one listens, maybe one or two. Jay-Z says something, everyone listens, everyone acts. Everyone is influenced. 
Regular people can be of great influence to others as well. But I also want to reach the masses. - God is Love

Notes 7 "Conversations"

I had some really inspiring and motivating conversations today.. this is how I'll sum them both up... 
For your ambitions and your goals to be absolutely satisfied, you must love apart from them. We can't just seek success to obtain material wealth. Our goals can't just be seeking financial stability. We must live, we must love deeper than that. People will see right through you. People will not see YOU. They will see wealth, money, personal success above the person you are. My father said something to me a couple weeks ago, he said, "Be thankful that we live in a country where a man isn't defined by his financial status and job title. We are judged by our character. A man who collects garbage will still own the same amount of respect as a CEO, because of the kind of PERSON he is". 
We must love apart from ourselves. Our person goals. Do it for your family. Do it for the people that are starving in other countries. You must be out of your mind if you want to be a millionaire and live in your downtown suite or lofty mansion and not think that there are people out there who don't have homes, don't have shacks, don't have pants, don't have underwear, don't have shoes, don't have clean water etc. That's what I mean when I say love apart from ourselves. There's no reason we should have something if we're not willing to share it. We all have the power to change the world, change someones life at any level. Now if you've ever wished to have superpowers, or to be a super hero.. well, here's your chance. - God is Love

Thank you, Jermi. 
Thank you, Alyssa. 
I wish both of you the best of life.

Notes 6, Count your blessings

People will always want something more, even if what they have is all they need. Unfortunately, it's how we work. I'm sure at one time or another you've asked yourself, why you couldn't be good at something, or have this and that. Some of my friends got brand new expensive cars when they graduated high school and I used to say, man, why couldn't I get a beamer or a escalade for my graduation, all I have is this '91 honda civic! I realized that hey, some other people would be more than happy to have my car. To have a car, period. Some people can't afford cars, some kids have to save up for years to get a car thats even older than mine. So who am I, who are we to act like we think we deserve more than what we need? The thing is, most of us think this way, because, well, we are humans, and secondly, we're just straight up ignorant. The reason why we want more than what we need is because we don't realize our blessings. We're too worried about what we don't have as opposed to what we do. What we're blessed with,  and what we have and how we look isn't always going to be what we want, but it's EXACTLY, what we need and need to be. And that's  MORE than enough - God is Love

Notes 5

You cannot expect people to re-emburse you for what you've given them. It may hurt, it may anger you, though if it makes you any less kinder, then you've lost it all. - God is Love

Notes 4, "the run around"

Don't you hate "the run around"? In another phrase "beating around the bush". It's more obvious than sarcasm, but the thing with sarcasm is that you can joke about it. When someones giving you the run-around it's hard to just tell that person to get to the point without sounding confrontational. Why do people do that? Why we do we do that? Why can't we all just say how we feel at that very moment, straight up? Oh.. the questions of life that will always be answered but never learned from. - God is Love
