Simply Be You My Dear, I Ain’t Studdin To Be Like You

In this life, you endure so many flavors and many climates.  From bitter to sweet, cold windy chills to warm steamy afternoons.  But regardless just as the world continues to turn and the clock continues to tick, life continues to flow.  Folks will talk high and low of you.  Of what you do and don’t do, but you must reach that platform when you simply don’t care and become totally people free.  The old saying sticks and stone can break my bones but words can never hurt me is a myth.  Contrary to that cliché, words can permeate your very soul and can wound you to the core.  But when you reach the stage of true resilience and care none at all Shuga, life becomes so exhilarating and like my dear brother says, “liberated baby”.  A sweet friend of mine shared this song and the lyrics just rumbled a marathon of truth and awareness to me. “Some Kind of Way” by Jidenna is indeed a song truth and testament of living “your” life with no guidelines from others.  So celebrate your uniqueness, your eclecticism and your perfect imperfections.  Dance through your office prior to work day or dance through your entire house alone.  Have a party with yourself, just because there is simply one you and no matter how they hate, attempt to replicate you or question, you let em kick rocks and love the “you” that you are.

Love  & Blessings to you, you, you and you, Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

 

Take a listen and lubricate your ears with this tune.
