Peace Good People. I've been massively slacking and half-ass blogging for a good minute now. My sincerest apologies, but if I may, please allow me to explain. After all, we are kinda like family...
With Father's Day passing, the 4th of July upon us, and my birthday coming up soon, I've just really been missing my dad. I've made no secret of the fact that his death has been hard for me to deal with and for some reason, the holidays always make it worse. The truth is that I've been doing a really good job of feeling sorry for myself lately. All of that is about to stop though. I'm going to make some changes, get back on my "A" game, and get my shit together. I promise! I wanna thank my compadres Digs, EOP, Gambitt, Nappy Style, KidNice, and HeavySoulBrutha for constantly supporting me and holding me down.
Keep On Moving was one of my dad's favorite albums. It was passed on to me and I hadn't listened to it for awhile. Last week, I hit up one of my favorite shops and saw this baby in the window. I came back home and feverishly searched through my pile, found the album, put it on and let it play. The listened to the title track over and over again felt a range of emotions while doing so. I realized that it was ok for me to occasionally allow myself to go to that dark place, but I also realized that it's not ok for me to stay there. I gotta keep moving. I gotta keep going. There just are no other options for me. I went back to the record store and picked an extra copy just because I wanted to share it with one of you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and it's yours!
In this journey we call life, there are going to be a ton of upsets and road blocks that come our way. Some people never grow up. Some people never get over shit. Some people are angry, bitter, jealous, and just plain rotten deep down in their soul. However, I refuse to be one of them. No one is worth me selling my soul to the devil. I'm going to do my best to keep this blog fresh, original, and up to par. I'm going to strive to keep improving. It's a war out there. I'm a one-woman army, but I'm always ready to battle! Let's Go!
