Life is a Beautiful Struggle


There is so much on my mind right now. We had a tough, but great faith formation class tonight. The main thing that I wanted to get out is that no matter what we are facing and what people are saying, we have to know WHO WE ARE and what other people think about our life situations does not matter. You have the right to feel what you want to feel, but you have to be ready to deal with the circumstances that come with your decision.

Don't be afraid to be afraid, to not have the answers, to hurt, to cry. You are human, allow yourself to live and learn. You have the power to take these negative feelings and allow them to fuel you to become the person you want to truly be, but first you have to experience your feelings in all their truth.

But the troubles you have today you just can't laugh away
Stay optimistic, thinking change is gonna come like Donny Hathaway
You have to pray, on top of that, act today
Cause opportunity shrivel away like Tom Hanks in "Cast Away"
-Talib Kweli, Beautiful Struggle
