“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.”—Ellen Goodman (via leuitate)

tired of the average getting abnormal undeserved praise. I’m tired of the youth not being the tastemakers,I’m tired of old people, tired of niggas with no plans or skill set expecting to make it. I’m tired of people telling me I made it. Tired of people’s such low standards of “making it”. I’m…
I’m always hearing about people wanting the outcomes and rewards of other people’s hard work, talent , and yes sometimes even luck. But, rarely do I hear someone wanting to mimic their will, their hustle, their resolve. We’re often too focused on the material and forget the substance of a person. Their challenges, upbringing, history , relationships, etc. And these can be good and bad attributes. However, why not covet and lust for the character of others instead of their laurels.
We all want to be the best musicians, artists, chefs, athletes, actors, writers, stylist, bloggers, editors, influencers, models, gallerist, etc. Great, fun and noble shit for the most part, but it’s #veryrare that I hear, “I want to be the best fucking friend I can be, the best fucking dad, the best mom, the best partner, the best damn janitor, the best farmer, the best butcher, etc” The best whatever it fucking is that you can do and thrive at regardless of interest from others and potential acclaim (on and offline). This is what I believe the world is missing”A want of being missed. A lack of fear for the more than likely out come of being completely forgotten. A silent moment of self pride and self-love that comes from doing whatever it is you find the best thing for you to be doing with your time while living.
