Love Yourself Edition.

There are days put up to commemorate people occasions and things. Since maybe you haven’t put yourself somewhere on a map doesn’t mean you are a nobody. Make everyday your day. 
The following words have been adopted from a song by India Arie- Video. 
These are all the words that i wanna say in 3 minutes and 46 seconds. bottom line, you are love and love is you. If you cant love yourself, no ones gonna love you. say this to yourself every time you doubt your confidence.


“”Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t


Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t


Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes

It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

I’m not the average girl from your video

and I ain’t built like a supermodel
 
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally

Because I am a queen

My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes

No matter what I’m wearing I will always be me
 
When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me

Every freckle on my face is where it’s supposed to be

And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me

My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I’m lovin’ what I see

Am I less of a lady if I don’t wear pantyhose?

My mama said a lady ain’t what she wears but, what she knows

But, I’ve drawn a conclusion, it’s all an illusion, confusion’s the name of the
 game

A misconception, a vast deception

Something’s gotta change

Don’t be offended this is all my opinion
 
ain’t nothing that I’m sayin law

This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with y’all

So get in where you fit in go on and shine

Clear your mind, now’s the time

Put your salt on the shelf

Go on and love yourself

‘Cuz everything’s gonna be all right

Keep your fancy drinks and your expensive minks

I don’t need that to have a good time

Keep your expensive car and your caviar

All I need is my guitar

Keep your Kristal and your pistol

I’d rather have a pretty piece of crystal

Don’t need your silicon I prefer my own

What God gave me is just fine……..'””

if i say more i might spoil the moment.

my solitude :{

Sometimes i love MY silence/noise. That’s why most times id rather hop onto a quiet matatu and get to my destination silently!!! (note the number of times i have used silent/quiet). If the silence is too defeaning id plug my earphones on and defean my drums. 
Over Easter this year we happened to be going for a trip. Do you know what time we were to leave for wherever??? At 8 in the am. Thats normal. Right?? Of course. And do you know what time we left? At 5.42 in the pm!!!  Thats nothing close to african timing. Its simple. People should buy watches or just simply learn how to interpret the ones we are using. *smh*
my motivation  comes from what i was going thru in the bus… By the time people were drunk on cheap liquor. Shouting shady insults and doing shady moves to the shady and overplayed jams and mixes. This is travelling!!! Not some local bar you just dropped into to get your’two for the road’. 
These very uncivilized people give you hell and they really dont get what it is you are supposed to do. I mean, this is campus and you just hold your horses and get over the post-highschool excitement and chill. You are on your way to adulthood sucker! Anyway, those are just my two cents and no judgement or hard feelings.
