Life

Life,
What is it all about?
According to Forest Gump and his mama,
“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what
you’re going to get.”
To some, that may be true
to others…well…their theory
might be different.
Is life really what you make of it or what
you make out of it?
Ever wonder why life changes
through the course of time?
Is your life supposed to change?
Is my life supposed to change?
Were we given life to make an impact?
Were we given life to make less of an impact?
Are we here just to be?
Are we here to accomplish something?
I know that I’m here for a reason.
I consider myself to be the chosen one,
not in some sick demented
way but to get a point across.
What point?
Any and all points, I’m here to make everyone aware.
Aware of life and its surroundings.
Life isn’t like a box
of chocolates, life is about being.
You being the controller of your life.
You being the one not afraid of making mistakes.
You not being afraid to admitting to your mistakes.
Life is about taking advantage,
advantage of your life.
Life can change only if you want it to change.
If your life stays the same it doesn’t mean
that you are boring.
Your life can remain the same and not be
boring, it’s all about how you live your life.
That same dull “boring” life can be lived
with animation.
It is your choice whether you make that
big impact or that less of an impact.
It’s sad to say but,
it seems like the only time you accomplish something
it goes unrecognized until you’re 6 feet below.
Shameless to say, but that’s the way that it goes.
When it does go recognized it’s because you
are worth millions…
But everyone on this earth should
consider themselves priceless.
But a life is so much more than
millions, billions, trillions, or even gazillions.
It’s just about how you live your life.
So again, I ask you
what is YOUR life about?

Regrets

One of my favorite rappers is Jay-Z and Regrets is my absolute favorite song of his. I just go into a zone when I hear this song. No matter when I hear or just want to play it, I zone all the way out. My favorite part of the song is when he’s talking to a friend but in all actuality he was talking to his friend’s spirit. I sometimes find my self thinking about my brother who passed away and I get lost in my thought and it feels as if he’s right next me and we are talking to each other. That’s deep.

The moral of the song is about getting to the top and what we do in order to get there. So the main thing he is rapping about is living with regrets. We know that what we are doing is wrong and we will regret it and it’s something that we have to learn to live with.

My question: Why do something when we know that we are going to regret it?

My opinion: I think that we do what we do and are aware of the consequences because it is a learning experience. Everything that we do we learn from – whether it is good or bad. There is something that is being taught to us. It is up to the individual to get something out of it. Me, personally, I have no regrets. I’ve made bad choices but, at the same time, learned more about myself. I learned what I can and cannot handle. I also learned what my needs and wants are when it comes to myself. I don’t regret going through and/or doing what I did. Some people do have regrets and there are others that don’t have any regrets.

My question to you, do you have any regrets?
