Hey, hi, and hello out there!
Believe it or not, there is an art to failing, to failure. It wasn’t until my lens of perception was clean and free of the grease of life that I was able to, not only accept this, but use it as a tool to become successful too!
Admitting and accepting my weaknesses has only come to make me stronger and allowed me to turn those weaknesses into some of my greatest assets!
Brutal honesty about my past and the way I used to live, has caused me to bear many a judgements, but I’d rather be hated for being real than loved for being fake as I am just as unable to discard my past as I am these tattoos that cover my skin!
I fall down and wipe out still, emotionally, mentally, and physically too! But, I lick my wounds, get back up, and keep fucking going!
Many of the things I have succeeded at, I have failed at quite a few times before that! Take for example, I made the deans list this past semester, but, I was on academic probation as well, because I gad quit school the three semesters before that due to the fact that working full time and going to school proved to be too much. So, I stepped back, took a look at the whats, the hows, and the whys of my failures, and I found a way to do both, and successfully!
I have a Lust for Life that is insatiable! They say that everything worth having is just out of reach and right outside of ones own comfort zone! I get bored easily and love to try new and exciting things and in doing so, I fall down and fail, a lot!
I attempted to get many a writing jobs, but, because we live in such a credendialist society and I do not have a writing degree, I faced a lot of closed doors! So, I said “Fuck Em”! I started my own publication company, KaBoom Publications, filed for a business license, a business account is in the works, and I published my own free rag, The OnYun A’Peel! Which, by the way, has just about sold out of ad space for the next edition which is scheduled to drop by the end of June! So, stay tuned!
By simply looking at one of my many failures in a generic sense, and I say generic not because a failure is not worth so much, but because it does have the potential to posses so much, I am able to pin-point how and why I failed and this my friends, is an ART!
So, watch as I paint my masterpiece and start my own skateboard shop right here in Michigan City!
I am brOKen! It is not impossible! It is more like, I’m Possible! Stay up! Stay Human Too!
