A Mother

What is a mother? A mother is a very strong woman who’s willing to give her life to her very own child. Their blood. Their pride and joy. A mother is willing to give up her time for her children. No matter what their children wants or needs, any mother will be there for them. A mother would rush to their children’s side whenever an emergency occurs and would spend every minute with them to make sure they’re okay. A mother would stop at nothing to feed her children. No matter if there’s a lot of food or no food at all, a mother would always make sure that their child is fed one way or another. A mother would give up her occupations to be with her children every minute of every hour. No questions asked. That takes a lot of courage. One thing for sure, a mother’s love is very unconditional. A mother will love her children to the very end. That’s one thing that can’t be untamed. A mother’s love. Tomorrow is Mother’s Day so to every single one of you reading this blog, treat your mother very well. Give her gifts. Take her out to dinner. Most importantly, tell her that you love her. Tell her that every single day! To every single one of you mothers out there, tomorrow’s YOUR day! Enjoy it!

Stay Humble

I speak for almost everyone when I say this, we all want to reach to the top. We all want success in our lives. Am I right? There’s plenty of people out here who’ve done just that, but there’s something they almost seem to forget. They’ve got to be humble and stay humble. So many people out here reach success yet they seem to forget where they came from. No matter how your road to success has looked, you must always stay humble throughout the whole ride. Be grateful for what you have in life and never forget how you got to that point.

We all have ups and downs. We all deal with a ton of BS. It’s just life honestly. But in order to reach to a greater height, you must remain humble. Don’t just let your success get to your head and make yourself look bad in public. Don’t make yourself look selfish. Always remember your beginnings and show people that hard work does pay off. Always remain humble.

Struggles are what makes us humble whether you believe it or not. You go through struggles, sometimes even major struggles, in order to reach success. Throughout those struggles, you have to remain humble. Why? Because you would be a great inspiration to people. You would have great stories to tell. If someone were to come up to you and say that they want to have the same success you have then they ask how you got there, you can sit down with them and tell them everything they need to hear in order to reach success, especially that fact that you remained humbled the entire time. Would you want to be an inspiration to someone? That would be a hell of a way to do so.

Not to mention, being humble makes you a better person. People will look at you as a true inspiration and you will feel great about yourself and rightfully so. I would love to be an inspiration for people one day. That’s a goal of mine for sure. No matter what happens in life, I ALWAYS stay humble. Once I reach the success I’m working hard for, I will gladly tell people how I’ve got to that point. Always be humble people. Always stay humble. Your success will come to you, and the fact that you were humble the entire time will make your road to success 10x more memorable.

Writing and Music

My two favorite hobbies: Writing and Music.

Writing

You all know that I love to write. Writing takes up so much needed time. Writing can be very peaceful. Writing can clear your mind. Writing can be your own type of meditation. It’s for sure my meditation. I have so much things to say, and it shows once I have a writing utensil and a piece of paper in front of me. Same can be said with blogging as well. So much thoughts expressed through so much words. It’s really a great stress reliever too at times. Whenever I don’t blog, I write in a notebook. To be honest it’s been a while since I’ve written in my notebook and maybe I need to get back into that. I just love writing. Maybe I’ll write a book someday? I just gotta come up with a great story idea. Once that happens, I’m good to go.

Music

Who doesn’t love music? C’mon now. Don’t matter the genre, music can bring happiness to anyone. I listen to almost every genre. The genres that I don’t listen to but can tolerate are the likes of rap and country. My favorite genres are rock, dance, dubstep, and electronic. I even listen to classic music because of how far ahead of its time those old school musicians were. Just like writing, music can be a great stress reliever. In any kind of sour mood I’m in, music could almost fix my mood. I’m happy to say that actually. I can’t listen to music and continue to be upset about absolutely anything. It’s an instant uplift. That could be said for anyone. I would even attempt to sing sometimes even though I can’t sing for shit. Humming now that’s good enough for me. Listening to music while writing is probably my favorite combination too. It sometimes help with my writing but it mainly continues my writing. Sometimes when I do deal with a huge case of writer’s block, I would just crank up some tunes and BOOM, I’m back on track! Music is such a big part of my life as it really does help me get through some tough days and even through laziness. Music will continue to be part of my life as long as I live.

Don’t Quite Fit In

Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong here. Sometimes I feel like I don’t fit in today’s society. Sometimes I feel like I don’t fit in the current generation. I just feel like I’m too different from everyone else. I feel older than everyone else. I don’t know how else to describe it. I just don’t quite fit in.

I’m a young man with an older mind than everyone else around me. I’m 22 years old but I feel like I have the mind of a 45 year old man. 45 years old is not old by any means, but to me it feels that way a little bit when it comes to my generation. I look at today’s society and I can’t help but feel like I’m not supposed to be here. At least that’s how I feel at certain times. Whenever I would watch movies from the past, I would love almost every minute of it. When it comes to modern movies, I would feel 50/50 about them. Whenever I would listen to classic songs, I would love every second of it. When it comes to modern music, again I would feel 50/50 about them. Is that weird or what?

Whenever I would socialize with people my age or a little bit younger, I would feel like I would have a connection with a couple of them but not everyone mainly because of the differences in personalities. I feel like they would be shocked at how I speak with total manners and be very respectful to them. Maybe because they’re not use to that kind of behavior in today’s world. Sounds pretty sad to be honest. They’re use to crazy behaviors and little manners. Some people appreciate my good manners, while others do not. I know when a person doesn’t appreciate respectful behavior. It sickens me at times but at the end of the day that’s just life. Can’t please everyone.

I can mostly have conversations with older people as they actually love the fact that I treat them with respect. You must treat EVERYONE with respect. They at least appreciate that. I feel like people nowadays don’t appreciate it. Not everyone, but some. That’s another reason why I don’t fit in with my generation. Maybe it’s not “cool” to show others respect. I don’t know. Whenever I show an older person respect, not only do they appreciate it but most of them would look at me and say, “Man, it’s nice to see some younger people like yourself who actually has manners. They’re hard to come by these days.” Isn’t that sad or what?

No matter what I do, I don’t think I would ever fit in with my generation. If that’s the case, then so be it. It’s me being me. Shane being Shane. Shane’s too nice. Shane’s too polite. Shane’s too respectful. That’s the way it’s gonna be.

Tears

We all shed a tear for different reasons. It could be happy tears, sad tears, angry tears, etc. Point is, there’s no shame in our tears. Don’t be afraid to shed tears. It’s better to just show them instead of keeping them inside of you. You’re basically fighting yourself if you keep your emotions hidden.

Happy tears are possibly the best type of cry ever. Think about it; something so incredible happens to you and you can’t help but cry out of total excitement. It truly shows that you are really happy and appreciate what’s going on in that exact moment. Being surprised by anything could also bring out some happy tears and that too is a great feeling.

Sad tears. Those absolutely suck. We’ve all been there. Whether it’s through tragedies, heartbreaks, or even pain we’ve all expressed sad tears. Even through depression as well. We would cry because life’s just tough. Don’t know what to do next in life and that could sometimes bring out sad tears. One positive thing about them is that they’re a form of strength. What I mean by that is we can cry for being sad, but afterwards we’ll get over it and go on with our lives. It’s almost easy to come back from. We’ll cry then be fine later on. Sad tears suck, but you can overcome that through the day.

Angry tears are a rare expression that really takes a lot to get out of someone. Have you ever been so angry that you would cry because of it? So angry that a tear would be displayed? Rarely do that ever happen. That just shows that you’re really pissed off that it’s sad. At the same time though, it does help with healing yourself. Some people can’t even show their emotions on their own command but once they’re really angry those tears could come out. That really does take a lot to display. It’s like you’re sad deep down but your anger takes over the sadness. It’s also something that is okay to show. Show people that you’re upset deep down. They could take that opportunity to help you out.

No matter what kind of tears you shed, it’s always okay to express them to the world. Be true with others about your emotions. No matter the circumstances, shedding a tear shows that you’re only human. That’s not something to ever be ashamed of.

Truth

Truth always hurts don’t it? Well guess what? I’d rather be hurt by a hard truth than a lie. Always tell the truth, no matter how hard it can affect someone’s feelings. They’ll understand it at the end of the day. Why does it seem so hard to tell the truth sometimes? Is it because we don’t wanna hurt that person’s feelings? Is it because it could sometimes get us into trouble, even big trouble? Like why? It’s better to deal with that than to lie to someone then deal with the consequences once the truth comes out. You can’t keep telling lies to people and feel good about yourself afterwards. What does that even accomplish? Nothing. Always tell the truth.

How would you feel if someone kept lying to you? If someone kept hurting you by not providing the truth? You wouldn’t like that would you? Not at all. Demand the truth from that person who’s feeding you lies. You mind be pissed off at first, but feel relieved at the end. The truth can set ANYONE free. Literally anyone, in one way or another. The more truth you spill out, the better of a person you become.

This was something that came to my head today. Literally like a word of the day type of thing. Truth. Why would that just pop into my head all of a sudden? Mainly because a lot of lies are spread around so much that no one truly knows what the truth is. It’s ridiculous. Telling the truth can be a big stress relief for anyone. Do it for yourself. That’s most important.

Always tell the truth. Tell the truth on the daily. It’ll definitely set you free my friend.
