Had you ever took the time to be grateful of wherever city you live in? Or took the time to just appreciate the details when you look at a view of your city? We take where we live for granted while others are dying to be here. The only time that we ever think about being grateful are those nights when we just want to escape from reality, not face your problems and just wish everything goes away. I’ve done it many times and the best escape is when your alone feeling the breeze of wind, hearing the tide of the ocean and looking at the city light. It makes you appreciate what you have more because you see a beautiful city from far and realize you don’t need more. All you need is yourself to be here. Sometimes what you escape from you got to look at the bigger picture in life, its a mistake that everyone makes. They don’t realize that they make their problems bigger when it was small. I do that all the time, in the end I lose myself and I let my emotions take over me. All there is are just negative thoughts running around my mind. When anger plus unstable emotions equals stubbornness and selfishness. You light up a cigarette, open a bottle or light up a j and get high. But in reality the aftermath makes it worst. The last toke of smoke makes you regret what just happened, the liquor hits you deep inside your soul with tears and the high makes you mad at yourself. What good does this bring you? Why not have a smoke and enjoy it? Why not drink for celebration? Why not get high when your having a good time? Why do we all over do this to our body when things aren’t going well? The answer is to temporary numb the pain. But we don’t see how good we have it already. At my weakest, the only thing I want to do is take a stroll to the park, take a drive down the beach but then realize in the end I got to face reality. The best thing to do is think of the good things, think of how far you came already, put on your crown and just put up with it. Put on a emotionless face and don’t call it quits now. Ten years down the road, you look back on your weakest think and will thank yourself that you never gave up. Quit your bad habits but never quit on who you are as a person.
