I think I think too much …

“I think a lot but I don’t talk much” – Anne Frank

Dear brain, stop thinking too much, stop jumping to conclusions, stop running around. I get lost in my thoughts and I can’t even speak. I can’t put words together to even express my thoughts. But you see that’s problem, I think too much and feel too deeply. It’s a dangerous pair. There’s so many problems that come from overthinking that can be avoided. I don’t think too much when I’m writing, I’m aware and I’m present. But that’s me, I can’t change.

The ink and the paper become one, my hand and the letters on the keyboard move in sync. The world is too loud but it’s suddenly quiet when I write.

The Girl

There once was a girl who liked a girl so much that she fell in love,

She was lost
confused
and alone
didn’t know who to trust,

If she told
they’d call her freak
she’d be an outcast,

All she wanted was to live and love just like the rest of us.

“The heart wants what it wants” – Woody Allen

Different – A poem

I never belonged
i wasn’t a part
I was just different
right from the start.

I had big brown eyes
untameable hair
I had chocolate skin
that was blemished not fair.

I couldn’t sing
wasn’t part of a team
I sat and read books away from the scene.

I wrote little poems
stories and letters
I wrote about love I’d never had
wrote about feelings I’d never felt.

I was mostly unnoticed, I liked it that way
Away from the drama and dissaray
I sheltered myself within my mind
surrounded by thoughts that kept me alive.

I never belonged
i wasn’t a part
but that wasn’t so bad
because I was content at heart.

I think it’s called ‘Love’

You fall in love with the way he talks and the way he says his words

You fall in love with the way he walks and the way he holds your hands

You love the way he looks at you like you’re the only one

You love the way he makes you feel when you’re alone

You love the way his eyes are brown but brighter than the stars

You love the dimples in his cheeks and the wrinkles by his mouth

You love the sound of his laugh and the way he makes you smile

You love the way you can talk for hours without getting bored

You love the way you heart skips a beat when  he says ‘Hello’

You love the way he thinks too much but you think too much too

You notice the way the more you talk the more you sound like him

You love his complex mind and all his troubled thoughts

You don’t know why you care so much but you know he cares too.

‘ Some people care too much, I think that it’s called Love ‘

– Winnie the pooh

 

Art

Beauty is art
Life is art
YOU are art
(No this isn’t going to be a long emotional speech, nothing too deep)
A smile is probably the most beautiful feature.
A smile says a thousand words and your eyes show a thousand emotions.
It’s the most raw form of expression.
Art isn’t just drawing, coloring or painting. It’s everything we see, touch, feel, smell and do. You’re an artist. If you write, you’re an artist. If you sing, you’re a musical artist. If you act, you’re a theatrical artist.
Art is the most beautiful form of expression and most of the time we hide it within ourselves.
We hide behind our art
I’m an Artist, that’s what I am.

Dear Child,

Dear black girl, you are gorgeous!

Dear white girl, you are precious!

Dear mixed girl, you are exquisite!

Dear Girl Child, you are Beautiful!

In this new society. MELANIN is popping, silky hair is the new “in thing”, and make up is ruling the era. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wearing make-up, wearing weaves, braiding your hair and doing what you love.

Being yourself and doing what you love is the best way to be the most beautiful. I know this is so cliche and you’ve probably seen many Instagram posts on being beautiful.

Just so you know, and so that you are informed. The color of your skins means absolutely nothing, zero. Stop trying to be and look like everyone else and focus on being yourself.

Dear black boy, you’re good-looking!

Dear white boy, you’re striking!

Dear mixed boy, you’re amazing!

Dear Boy child, you are Handsome!

Just because you aren’t buff, 6 feet, built with the lowest percentage of body fat. Doesn’t mean that you aren’t great. In this society men are so focused on going to the gym and looking good but they forget that life isn’t about being the strongest or sexiest.

Unfortunately looks can’t get you an intellectual job. (unless of course you would like to be a model which is absolutely fantastic by the way) Having the best 6 abs or having the most toned arms isn’t the only thing there is to living. Yes its a good addition but if your personality is trash none of those things matter.

Being intelligent and reading instead of partying and wasting your life isn’t whack. Attempting to search for fame and popularity and wasting time on useless matters will get you absolutely nowhere.

Do what you love and love what you do or else you’ll never progress. Stop trying to be like other people, they don’t have the same dreams and aspirations as you do.

Stay happy,

Lisa

PS. this sounded like some cliche self appreciation post. Ain’t that cool?

PPS. my blog is about peace, love and positivity. Take all your negative energy and turn that into something useful. Thanks 🙂

STOP BEING AVERAGE AND TAKE YOUR LIFE TO THE NEXT LEVEL!!!

Introduction to Emmanuel Ndonga

Hey, my name is Emmanuel Ndonga Founder & CEO of ‘The 2030 Billionaires Academy’. I’m currently running my own business averaging a minimum of $800 every month; I’m in my final year of high-school and a member of Team Kenya Swimming Team. Now, before I move further, you’re probably thinking “WOW!! How’s he doing all this?? Or… ‘What am I doing with my life?’ Truth be told I’m no different from you. In school I may not be your typically smart A or A* student, as a matter of fact for a while I believed I wasn’t good enough… that I was never destined to be great or amount to much because at the time I believed that if I couldn’t pass my exams, what could I possibly do in life? I struggled with this for a while. Now, you’re probably wondering ‘so how did you shift from being the kid who lacked vision and seemed to have nothing going on in his life to who you are today?’

Well, the answer to this is what changed my life significantly…. You see as much as I didn’t have much going on in my life academically, I knew that I deserved better. I had this belief that I was destined to make an impact and I struggled finding myself through the process. I lost a lot of “friends” (don’t get me wrong, losing friends was quite heard but along the journey I picked up new friends who were like-minded and wanted to achieve more with their lives). I began listening to motivational videos that would inspire me, took online courses on whatever I could find that I thought was helpful in my life and in the process I discovered my true calling which was Entrepreneurship. Personally my parents wanted me to be a lawyer; however, the thought of being a lawyer put me off for several reasons. The main reason was when I went for an internship at this particular Law Firm. My friend was having the time of her life attending court cases and asking the lawyers’ questions, as for me on the other hand… well you know that uncomfortable feeling where you have to hang out with your parents’ guests and you’d prefer to be in your room?? Yeah that was me the entire time; I knew deep down that Law was definitely not for me.

This is where many of us are at, you know you can do more with your life but you haven’t quite discovered what you want to do, or you’re in that position where you don’t know what to do and you know in your heart of hearts the career path your parents have chosen for you is one that you really don’t want to pursue and don’t know what to do. That’s 100% alright, Because I was there!!! And found the solution to all this and that’s where The 2030 Billionaires Academy comes in!!!
