Whenever you feel like life is becoming too difficult to cope with think about others. If life is becoming difficult because you're thinking about others, then do something about it. If you don't know what to do about it, write! I promise, something always comes from putting your thoughts down on paper. It may be something good, possibly liberating. Probably something different than what you're used to doing if you're not a writer and if you ARE a writer, well then you know how this goes. Whether its an idea, plan, list, goal, feeling, you can always go back to something you wrote and reflect on it in the future. Its called growth! Just pick up the pen and write something even if you don't know what the fuck you're even holding that pen for. (and please do pardon my french.) But you seriously need to write! Especially if you're reading this and you're wondering why you're still reading it, then I guarantee you could use something to write about. And now I have written this motivational speech and for all its worth, if it doesn't help you, it just helped me!
I've been listening closely to this amazing artist from Trenton, NJ, Chadd Downing. I'm in love with several tracks on his mixtape "PMFL" but this "Number Two" track produced by Hannibal King is just what the doctor ordered. For a hip hop/rap loving poetry enthusiast like myself, it captivates the essence. Take a quick listen and tell me what you think. Then, feast your ears to the rest of his dopeness on http://chadd-downing.tumblr.com/
