Maybe Then

Celebrate Life

 

…maybe then…maybe after you’re done obeying all the rules, dressing in all the right clothes, going to all the right schools, chasing all the right jobs, networking with all the right people, and doing everything they told you that you need to do to be successful all the way down to eating Sushi, drinking Starbucks, and disowning all of your family and friends who aren’t career oriented because them being in your life ain’t — excuse me, is not a good look with the people you’re trying to impress… and then you realize that you’re not happy…

…maybe then you’ll flip your middle finger to peer pressure, quit worrying about everyone’s opinion of you, go back to drinking red Kool-Aid, eating chicken, and being happy to see your not so perfectly mannered family members that will rob an armored truck to give you an opportunity to be successful because they genuinely love you instead of spending all your time trying to brown nose those stiffs for a promotion…

…maybe then you will dust off your dreams, your ambitions, your purpose, and fight to become the person you are supposed to be… not the one that sounds good to everyone else, but the invisible you that’s being murdered a little bit everyday in your prison of self inflicted mediocrity of wanting to look good in the eyes of everyone else, the one that’s fighting from deep down in your soul to liberate you from the rat race…

…maybe then you will get off your ass and say what you have to say, do what you need to do, be who you want to be…

…maybe then you will remember what it means to be genuinely happy….

…maybe then you’ll do “That Thing”… ~ Sean King

One Reason

img_0006_0

You can find a gazillion different reasons to be angry, irritated, sad, offended, or put off. I encourage you to find ONE reason to smile, to be happy, to be thankful (and act like it), and to love… When you find that ONE reason, hold on to it like your life depended on it, because it does… and every time you start looking at those gazillion reasons to allow negativity to seep into your life, look back at that ONE reason, smile, and then say, “You almost got me that time devil.”

Smile, Are you With Me?

I want you to stop
Whatever you’re doing right this moment and
Smile

Smile
Because God made you
Beautiful

Smile
Because you’re loved and
Appreciated

Smile
Because you have the power
To make a difference

Smile
Because you know
Even though you’re not sitting next to me
Your smile
Will ignite the fire that
Lights my soul

Smile
Because you know
I’m smiling
And that’s something we can do
Together,
Brothers and sisters need to start
Smiling together

When we smile together
We are powerful
World changers
Nothing we can’t do
No obstacle we can’t overcome
No miracle we can’t make happen

When we smile together
We radiate light
Bright like a Supernova
Drip God’s contagious love
Attack the immune system of hate
Like a virus
Rendering it helpless
Unable to recreate negativity and
Defenseless
Against love’s advance
Until it’s only option
Is to assimilate
Into the culture of love,

And it all starts with you
And that beautiful smile of yours

So stop
Whatever you’re doing right this moment and
Smile

Smile
Because God made you
Beautiful

Smile
Because you’re loved and
Appreciated

Smile
Because you have the power
To make a difference

Smile
Because you know
Even though you’re not sitting next to me
Your smile
Will ignite the fire
That lights my soul

Smile
Because you know
I’m smiling
And that’s something we can do
Together
Brothers and sisters need to start
Smiling together

Smiling together
We are as God intended us to be
Beautiful

Are you with me?
