Change your mindset. Educate yourself. Stay positive. Cut off shitty people. Eat healthy. Focus on your goals. Spend some time alone. Read books. Drink more water. Take care of your skin. Be an authentic version of yourself.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. One of my favourite sketches by Key & Peele, watch it.)
To me, cool means living for more than the next moment. Cool doesn’t mean having the latest Dior, knowing people, being on the list, and sitting at Lucien. Cool means you are your authentic self. Cool means you walk the walk. Cool means being a good fucking person. Cool means when you are alone, you can stand to be with yourself. Cool means listening when others speak. Cool means holding doors open and smiling. Cool is compassion, understanding, love, and boundaries. Cool is being good.
There are some things that must happen because they must. Things you can’t avoid, like growing up, failure, grieving, happiness, etc. But when it comes down to it, life is really about people. It’s about who you meet and who you don’t. Who forgets you and who remembers. Who soothes your bruises & helps you heal. Who you run after and who chases you down the line. It’s about who’s there when you feel alone and who’s not. Who you could talk to and who makes it hard for you to be yourself. That’s what’s important, PEOPLE.
The way they look into your eyes right before they’re gone and the way they smile right back at you when you return back home. People, it’s always about people. The ones who love you, protect you and the ones who are there for you when you need them most. I hope you never forget that. PEOPLE are precious, choose wisely.
I love my own company and i enjoy being alone, a lot, but I am very outgoing and social. My environment dictates how I behave. Very often I’m loud, sometimes I’m quiet. I read the energy and adjust. There are times when I want to turn up and then there are moments where I want to read a good book, watch a whole BuzzFeed unsolved season or some documentary on science/technology/engineering, sometimes i drive till everything in gauge cluster turns red, or i just spend time processing my thoughts, all alone. My personality confuses people & i like that.
My ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that I may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, I have big dreams and i deserve to live a life I love and let that love radiate. Life is fun, let it be.

If you know me based on who I was a year ago, you don’t know me at all. My growth game is impeccably strong.
