This post is about those who have balls, and those who don't.
Working on radio exposes me to all kinds of music- the good, the bad and the 'why na?'. Sometimes a big artiste releases a new song and they are taken to the cleaners and I'm like, o wow.
But to be honest, fighting for your dreams takes accepting criticism and ugliness. Question is, can you fight for your dreams the way artistes (even those we criticise the harshest) calmly release their song, overlook the hate and keep going on?
Sometimes we even knock ourselves down (and out) before others do, by thinking of what people would or would not say.
They want to model but on twitter there are so many jokes about how everyone is a model these days, so they never work on their portfolio.
They are good writers but instead of opening a blog, they listen to people laugh at bloggers and how suddenly everyone owns a blog. (re: blogs. It is okay for EVERYONE to own a blog. That is what a blog is all about. It is like an online diary. I don't get why all the fuss.)
My point is, sometimes we spend so much time knocking ourselves down that there is no need for anyone else to do it for us.
And for me, i pray i can truly say, this is my life, this is who i want to be.
Not some times, but ALL the time.
