If you live through defeat, you are not defeated. If you are beaten but acquire wisdom, you have won. Lose yourself to improve yourself. Only when we shed all self-definition do we find who we really are. - Rza
PS. I had a cat growing up named after that man 😊
Mama said "Boy keep ya head up they gonna come at you but you gotta keep going I know with all my heart you will get there."
Papa said "Keep doing what you doing you will get there, your a good kid with a kind heart. Your love for the game is the way you play it and the way you play THIS game is with all your heart." 💙 #ChinUpKid#BetterDaysAreComing
Remember how much you've endured. You may not have all your loved ones nearby or even on this earth but you have the love of your ancestors and their prayers. Let us tell every brown girl she is worthy of our love, respect; to her we give our loyalty and our attention. #chinupkid
Thinking of the times when the load felt too heavy to carry; could no longer stomach the losses; been backstabbed too many times... reaching the point of saying fuck it and throwing in the towel... Just having a few core people around me that believed in me... you don't need many... To give that extra ounce of strength needed to persist against seemingly undefiable odds. To put your head down and crack the code to seemingly impossible puzzles. To pull together and stay positive through our darkest hour... The process is grueling and painful, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. It's all about the journey baby 👊
