Ahhhh Pending it’s almost here. This record means a lot to me. Growing up I never ever ever thought I was special. I found myself always searching for something that would define me. I always felt there was nothing really special about me to latch on to. Even though I rapped I didn’t look at it as a skill that was “special”, it was just something I enjoyed and was good at.
Now even to this day I do not really think of myself as “special” but around the time when I was working multiple jobs and taking night classes, to upgrade my marks to enter university. I definitely started seeing myself as someone not to be underestimated not because of what I was doing, but because I set out a plan and executed it. Believe me I was never one to set goals and achieve them. I was just “living” until I started setting goals.
It is my belief that most people rarely get to do what they want in life. What I mean by that is most people make decisions based off their options. Someone actually living their dream is extremely rare. It’s kind of why major populated areas in North America fantasizes the idea of getting away on a vacation or going to the cottage as “the ultimate thing”.
I am grateful for my position. Granted things can always be better but I am extremely grateful for being able to do what I love….
