“There’s gonna be some stuff that you’re gonna see that’s gonna make it hard to smile in the future. But whatever you see, through all the rain & pain you gotta keep a sense of humour, gotta be able to smile through all this – Remember that. Keep ya head up.” – Tupac Shakur
This past month has been uncharacteristically tragic, not just for me personally, but for the world. Amid all the chaos, horror, and heartache, I feel it’s important (for my own sanity) to note down in black and white just a few beautiful things I’m grateful for at the moment:
- True Story: Sometimes I just Google ‘Tupac Smiling’ and scroll through pictures. Maybe that’s absolutely ridiculous of me, but come on – dude had a great smile; Also, his EYELASHES. Another awesome thing featuring Tupac is the film ‘Poetic Justice‘. If you haven’t seen it, change that.
23 years is a significant amount of time to have lived, and I like to think I haven’t wasted it. Over the years I have acquired knowledge, shared knowledge, forgotten knowledge, rejected knowledge, & relearnt knowledge. That’s life. Today the most important things I know and hold onto are actually some of the first things I was taught as a young child. It’s funny how that works.
