Lil sista… There is something inside of you that no man gave or can give. It is a source of power and strength. You have an innate ability to better yourself if you would just listen to what is already there. Some call it the Holy Spirit (ghost). Some call it GOD. Some call it the conscious. Whatever it is, it is already there waiting on you.

Often times people use this phrase: is the glass half empty of half full. They use it (or some use it) to convey ideas of optimism and pessimism. If you see the glass have full you are looking at it in a positive light and if you see it half empty then vice versa. However, I would like to extend this logic.
1. Look at the container and figure out what it is made of. Different substances react differently to liquids.
2. Then look for any cracks or breeches. If it has any, then you need not worry about whether the container is half full or half empty because the liquid will eventfully seep out any way.
3. Upon not finding any cracks, determine the kind of liquid the container holds. Is it water? If it is, is it fresh or soiled, or dirty, or from the tap or a spring, or from the sewer or toilet.
4. After figuring out the kind of liquid you are holding you have to make a decision. Are you going to keep the liquid or start over with something different. At that time you have completely forgotten about the initial problem: is your container half full or half empty, because you are now determined to figure out specifically what you are holding and if you want to hold on to it.
Apply this logic to any facet of life. Think about it.
I was thinking to myself, as I usually do, about how we are socialized to name or label everything. We have been taught that when something does not have a name it is in fact nothing, but that is not true. Just because something or someone has not been defined or named does not mean that that something or someone does not serve its purpose. A chair would still serve in its capacity if we did not call it a chair. A lover still serves in their capacity, of loving us, although we may not call them a boyfriend/girlfriend. Do not lose yourself in name calling. Sometimes we have to allow things to serve their purpose and move on without ever calling it something specific. GOD is what GOD does and it is the names we are calling it that has us confused and divided. Labels, name, specifics take away from the experience and diminishes purpose. Think about it.
