THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF.

Posted on May 03 2019

IF YOU FOLLOW ME AT ALL YOU KNOW I’M A TRUE FAN OF HIP HOP CULTURE AND HIP HOP MUSIC, ESPECIALLY MC’S I CONSIDER LYRICISTS.  SWAY IN THE MORNING ON SHADE45 IS ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SHOWS AND PLACES TO SEE NEW MC’S.  A FEW WEEKS AGO, SWAY INTRODUCED PARIS PRICE ON THE FRIDAY FIRE CYPHER.

THE MARYLAND MC NOT ONLY IMPRESSED ME WITH HIS VERBAL ACUMEN; HE ALSO HAS THE ABILITY TO TELL A GREAT STORY, USING VERY FEW WORDS.  AS I LISTENED TO A VERSE FROM PARIS, HE SAID A BAR THAT CAUSED ME TO STOP THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE AND REPLAY IT MULTIPLE TIMES.  THE WORDS SPOKE DIRECTLY TO MY SOUL!  I LITERALLY REPLAYED THE WHOLE 16 BARS, FIVE TIMES IN A ROW!!!

 

“I’LL NEVER TREAT MY DREAMS LIKE A ONE NIGHT STAND.”

 

CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH DICTIONARY DEFINES ONE NIGHT STAND AS:  “A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP THAT LASTS FOR ONLY ONE NIGHT, OR A PERSON WHO YOU HAVE HAD THIS TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP WITH.”  A NO STRINGS ATTACHED RELATIONSHIP.

 

I LOVE HOW PARIS USED THIS SIMILE TO COMPARE HIS “DREAMS” TO A “ONE NIGHT STAND”.

 

IN MY UPCOMING BOOK I SAY, “HAVING A DREAM YOU ARE PURSUING IS A RELATIONSHIP LIKE NONE OTHER.  UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, IT IS DIFFICULT TO FATHOM HOW GREAT OF A COMMITMENT IT PLACES UPON YOUR LIFE.”

 

DREAMS ARE PERSONAL AND VERY PRECIOUS!  WE ALL HAVE THEM TO SOME EXTENT.  PURSUING A DREAM IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT MINDSET.  NOT EVERYONE DOES IT.  MANY ARE NOT WILLING TO DO THE WORK REQUIRED TO REACH THE DREAM(S) THEY SEE.  THOSE MAKING THEIR DREAMS REALITY ARE HYPER-FOCUSED.  ALL OF THE HARD WORK BEING DONE IS TYPICALLY NOT SEEN BY THE MASSES.  ONLY THE RESULTANT OF THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION IS SEEN.  IT ALMOST MAKES IT LOOK EASY.

 

I LOVE BALLERIAS AND THE ART THEY CREATE!

 

THIS IS A PHOTO OF MARLEN FUERTE.

IT IS VERY BEAUTIFUL.

SHE HAS REALIZED HER DREAM OF BECOMING A PROFESSIONAL BALLERINA.

THIS IS A PHOTO OF BALLERINA MARLEN FUERTE’S FEET AND ANKLES.

 

THIS IS THE BALLERINA’S REAL JOURNEY.

 

 

 

TO ME, THIS PHOTO IS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE FIRST ONE.  THIS PHOTO DISPLAYS ALL THE DISCIPLINE, LONG HOURS, HARD WORK, AND PAIN.  THIS PHOTO DISPLAYS HER TRUE CHARACTER AS A PERSON; A PERSON WHO PURSUED HER DREAMS AND TODAY REALIZES THEM AS A PRINCIPAL BALLERINA.

 

THIS POST WAS INSPIRED BY TWO ARTISTS; ONE ARTIST IS A HIP HOP MC  AND THE OTHER A BALLERINA.  BOTH CREATE BEAUTY THAT HAS INSPIRED ME, ALONG MY JOURNEY.  FOR THIS, I SINCERELY SAY THANK YOU TO BOTH PARIS PRICE & MARLEN FUERTE!

 

IN CLOSING, FIND YOUR TRUTH AND EMBRACE IT. HOLD ON FOR DEAR LIFE. CULTIVATE IT AND WATCH IT GROW INTO THE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN YOUR HEAD, FOR YOURSELF AND YOURS. 

 

MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT TO ALL.

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.
