For some reason I’ve always felt that I was too much. Too much of one things, not enough of another. Too passionate. Too loud. Too shy. Too timid. Too abrasive. Too into something. Too emotional. Too happy. Too sad. Too depressed. Not enough of this, too much of that.
I don’t know where I fit in.
And sure – we can argue that fitting in is the status quo and that I should be excited to break the mold and do something different and daring, but I don’t know where I fit. Not even fitting in – I don’t know where I’m supposed to be. Do you know how frustrating that is? To not know what is the next move? If you should take this leap of faith or maybe you’re being over-confident.
I’m re-evaluating everything I ever did. I don’t remember everything I ever said. I don’t know what is and what isn’t.
For the past few months, it’s been hard to sit down and make content for this blog. As someone who has been blogging…forever (think middle school), I started blogging as a way to connect to someone, anyone for that matter. On Blogger, I made my first blog and several blogs later, I finally started connecting with people. I had some sort of a following, had a couple of blogger buddies and looked forward to creating content.
There is no doubt that music has the power to heal.
Nine years ago, I got into Korean Pop (K-Pop) music. At first, it was fun. Flashy outfits, iconic dances, cute boys…so many cute boys.
No literally – 13 people in ONE group? …Insane.
Then it became not only appreciating the music but actually connecting with it. While I have yet to learn Korean (working on it!), there are many songs that I have looked to for comfort and joy. No matter what language you speak or don’t speak, music is truly a universal language. It has the power to connect and to heal.
Today, I present you with five of my favorite inspiring Korean songs that remind me to trust myself, shine bright, keep going, be proud of myself and remember that I am worth it and things will always work out in the end. Continue reading “MUSIC | 5 INSPIRING K-POP SONGS”→
Happy 4th! It’s been awhile since I have posted on my blog and it is long overdue! What better way to come back than to give you that good good?! Summer is in full swing. Whether you’re traveling the world or making the most of it in your backyard, I have some goods to keep your summer going just right.
It’s April! April marks new beginnings, rain showers, re-affirming one’s worth, completing goals and setting new ones, music from old and new faves, coffee and tea dates with friends, starting new ventures, realizing fears and turning them into accomplishments, learning how to love me so I can love others better, dates, kisses and being the best me I can be. Oh and starting to blog again. I hope you’re ready. 😉
Three verses, hell yes
I still ain’t get my Grammy’s in the mail yet
I just want my momma happy like a toy sale
And to stay connected to the world like a long ass voicemail
I hear the seams snappin’,
And I’m the team cap’in
No more knee slappin or shoe shining
Or shoe signing till the dream happens
I’m just gone keep rappin’
And y’all just keep clapping and keep happen
Like Flint got clean water and y’all don’t got teen daughters
And black friends and gay cousins
Y’all just don’t say nothin
Know that the day coming
Knees bowed, tongues confessin’
The last ones getting first dibs on blessings
Now these the first world problems that niggas make up
Keep on playin’, we gone shake this shit up
Keep on telling us we makin’ it up
The American dream, may you never wake up
