Notes 12 "Thug Life"

Being a Thug is defined BUT mistaken as a person who is a criminal, violent, disruptive and a dead end civilization in society. 
Thug Life. Thug life is the opposite of having everything you need to be successful. Thug Life is becoming successful without having anything at all. From dead broke, to stinkin' rich. Bottom, to Top. The Thug in a person is their pride. When you have nothing at all, not a dollar to your name, ratty clothes, jobless. The thug in you, the pride in you is going to hold your chin up high and spark something in you to better yourself. It's optimism. It's positivity. It's confidence. Thug Life. - God is Love

Notes 11 "Simple Life"

"There's an app for that", "I got this new app. How many times do you hear that or anything similar to that these days. I'm guilty of saying these things, I own a macbook, an iPad and an iPhone. I'm always got my face on the screen scrolling through the App store. As much as I follow the growth of technology and buy all the new gadgets I prefer to live, simply. The word "simple" has been redefined from being "plain", now presently defined as.. "easy". Simple living was just having bare essentials. Now it's about having the essential apps. The world is saying that writing and mailing a letter is too long, too SLOW. Even emailing isn't as relevant as it was 10 years ago. 
I'm worried that though future generations are getting smarter, they might just be getting lazier. Because not everything is at the click of a button. There is no app for doing your chores. And real friendships don't happen through computer screens and social networking sites. Life is simple, if you're just thankful to simply live. - God is Love

Notes 10 "No going back"

It's a bittersweet feeling when you leave a part of your life behind and come back to it and find it out it's still the same. More bitter than sweet actually. Because as much as it's sweet to go back, I know I can't stay, because if they don't grow, then neither will I. And what's life without growth? - God is Love
