Truth is… We hide because we want to be found… We walk… because we want to see whose willing to walk behind us…. We talk because we are really just trying to see who is really paying attention, but the real question I want to pose is why do we do so many things in hopes to see what others are going to do in response?
Isn’t that what many professions are based off of? You are basing your entire life off of other people, if other people are going to buy your products, if other people are going to watch your shows, if other people are going to do this, if other people are going to be interested in that, and you wonder why people say that we MUST be humble. Humbleness is something that has slowly become lost in society because people are forgetting that you HAVE to depend on other people for SOMETHING, that there is NOTHING you can do alone, absolutely nothing.
Let’s think logically for a moment, you can hate people with absolutely every fiber of your being but you are going to need people for something, some part of your every day life is going to depend on a person doing their job, some part of your money intake is going to depend on a person, you will not survive in the world without another living soul… that thought is not the best thought right…. but it’s true….
Humble is defined as having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance. Humility is important…. I leave you with this… know how to deal with people. Know your worth ALWAYS. Know your value, and NEVER allow it to be taken advantage of…. BUT ALWAYS… ALWAYS remain humble… because the same people you are “walking over” or claiming you’ll NEVER need… you just might. Have an amazing day my readers 🙂

Yes! Two posts in one day! Who knows… it may be three. I keep trying to convince you guys I’m not in control of my thoughts. Well now I want to keep it simple and discuss…. feminism. *gasps* yes. the -F word that sends trembles through even the strongest people, but that’s where people have it confused. People equate feminism with man hating, she women who think that we can lift cars and fly or some other super human insane things.
Okay well if I put enough thought into it… I’m sure I could, but come on people! Feminism is simply believing EVERY person is equal regardless of race, gender, sexuality, etc. Although many believe that will never be possible… if we STOPPED thinking in terms of outward appearances maybe it could be. The same goes for women. We can’t one day say “I’m a woman treat me equal”, and then the next say “I’m a woman, treat me as such” Sorry I’m all for contradictions, but let’s put that one back in the top drawer and close it back, lock it, flush the key, and never go look for it again.
Feminism is not about hating men. In fact I appreciate our men. I appreciate what they do for us. I completely agree we should be equal across ALL spectrums but I must say I appreciate my black men for raising black women to believe they are just as equal as every other woman because society does not equate them as such.
Now, next time you drop the -F bomb… let’s not picture “she-man men haters” but let’s picture everybody of all races, genders, and sexualities holding hands and singing kumbuyah! Pretty nice image right??
Until next time guys 🙂 Nikki Ouuuuuut 🙂
Who knows how often I’ll blog? Some days I have a million things going through my head at once. But I do have a challenge for my readers! Take at least 7 minutes out of your day to think! No one around, no phone, no TV, *possible music* and think! Just bask in all the thoughts you have. I’m not talking about any heavy meditating or anything, just thinking. Don’t control your thoughts. Just let them come. Who knows? You could come up with something great? A poem? A new idea? A paper idea? a career move? It’s just your time, and great thing about it you can do it anywhere, now I wouldn’t advise you to do it in class but say you’re riding the bus, put in your headphones (cover your purse) and go into your own mental paradise.
I tend to do this alot, more often than not. I have a really interested mind I can tell you guys that. I think my thoughts would throw the grumpiest old man into a fit of giggles. Sometimes I imagine a gang full of butterflies attacking the person sitting slumped in the corner and wrapping themselves around her in a hug making her bust into a smile, but it’d probably be my luck she’d be terrified of butterflies and then my optimism wouldn’t be of benefit… but it’d still be kind of funny.
Well I leave you with this today… Have you thought today?!
