No More Wishing

Sometimes music reminds me of another me inside that i’ve forgotten or maybe never even knew about.

I forget what being like water can truly entail.

Life is exciting when I think about it that way.

I can be anything.

Anything you want me to be.

And anything I want to be.

Life = Dance

ATWL Prize Money

I was just reminded that a lot of my dance friends are heading to Nicaragua courtesy of the All The Way Live Nicaragua campaign that Powerserge has put together. It’s an amazing and selfless thing to bring the positivity of our hip hop culture to people less fortunate than ourselves. And it’s even more amazing seeing a lot of people going out of their way to help support and make the trip out there for a great cause.

I realize now that the prize money from ATWL could have potentially been as much as it was to help the winners purchase tickets to join the cause. I selfishly used most of it for school as I was in dire need of funds to continue my education. Though a few monthsI did use $100 of it towards the San Bruno fire victims writing the check from ATWL, DSP, and AOV. I didn’t want to go out of my way to make it known to everyone tho haha.

Anyway, I hope to take part in the next trip that Serge and All The Way Live puts together. I’d like to make better choices and put others before myself when these types of opportunity arises. So i’ll work hard now so I won’t have to worry so much about myself later.

To be strong enough for when the opportunity comes — that’s what i’m working towards. Always.

Pacquiao vs Margarito

Luckily enough I was able to watch it live at my uncles house with a few of my friends. Lately, this fight has been weighing heavily in my mind. Not because of the 12-round domination that occurred. But just more the overall message that I got from the whole fight. This article sums some of it up pretty well, but i’d like to go more in-depth of my interpretation of it later tonight.

Funkin’ Style Documentary

Truer words could not be said when it comes to dance. We all have different backgrounds but we’re all brothers/sisters. We’re all one love. Dance is love.

“It’s not about the hip hop, house, hardwork, … it’s about love.”

Life

When it comes to life; I believe everything is worth it. From the biggest accomplishments to the smallest feelings it’s all a part of the experience of life. Sure some parts, at times, may leave a more lasting impression than others but I grew tired of trying to define life/lives through the power of comparison.

Who’s to say that there are things in this life that “aren’t worth it” when compared to other things? (Experiences, moments, lifestyles, ideals, motives, feelings, dreams, etc..)

To each his/her own journey!

Respect where others are, where they come from, and where they are going. Just because one believes in a certain way of living is the right way for you doesn’t mean it’s the right thing for everyone else. Comparing your way with others does not justify your “correct” way of thinking nor should it devalue others lives! Carrying out that thought-process, I find, can be disrespectful.

Each one has a unique life. Similarities or not; unique is key. Respect each persons uniqueness in all aspects.

I’ve found out a way about my life that I know is currently incredibly fitting for me. I’m still in the process of enveloping and developing it for myself and this will always be the case. I wish to share my way of life with others but not to brainwash, insist upon, or convince. Just to share ME. I believe others have their own way about life and may be able to see and understand my journey and way of life. If anything, we’ll have respect for one another. We should always respect one another.

Life isn’t about any one quote. Any one ideal. Any one dream. Any one ANYTHING. Life is simply what it is and it’s up to the individual to define and make use of it for themselves. Make it for yourself and to yourself. Comparisons shouldn’t be what adjusts how meaningful life is. It’s such a selfish egotistical thought-process that lately has been trying to externally poke its way into my heart.

But as I work hard to rid myself of obsessions of TIME & RANKING/COMPARING I find myself being tempted to come back to these thoughts. These thoughts that can force people to believe they are better or worse than others. That allow people to visualize a ladder to place others on.

I never again want to see that ladder. I don’t see myself as above or below anything or anyone. We’re all equal. We all have a life and we all make the BEST use of it. We’re all on the same (horizontal) line growing, changing, EXPERIENCING from life. Respect that. Respect that in each other!

Respect –> Life = Dance
(Respect life. Respect dance.)

New York tomorrow

After spending some time in my hyperbolic time chamber attempting to level up i’m back on the road starting tomorrow. I’ll be in New York for about a week and I couldn’t be more excited. I really feel that traveling opens my heart, mind, and spirit to another level and there are only things I can realize for myself when i’m in that state. I shouldn’t forget to mention the physical strain my body goes through while i’m at it. It always makes me feel like I haven’t trained enough..

Every time I leave home like this I always aim to get the most out of my traveling. It doesn’t necessarily mean seeing every sight or eating everything or spreading myself too thin finding things to do everyday. But to do what it takes to come back home a stronger person.

I love traveling and I believe that everyone at some point really needs to “travel”.

Just going to keep going

I’m just gonna keep pushing forward. I realize I had to make a sacrifice to get to where I am today. I sacrificed not just my own future…but others’ in the process. I’ll never think to if said sacrifices were worth it. I just know where I am now and what I had to go through to get here.

As lonely as this year has been it’s still been the easiest year to smile. I’ve found everything to be grateful for.

Even within the smallest “insignificant” moments…i’ve reason to smile. =)

arigatou!
