One thing that bugs me more than anything is complacency. There's this idea that floats around that makes us think we don't need to rise up. This constantly conflicts with our ingrained desire to achieve. The contradiction forces us to fight against our nature and decide who we want to be. The result: a ton of people who don't make any effort to change the world on any scale, or even become something on a personal scale. People settle for making it by instead of realizing that they deserve the best, and it's sad.

I'm sure this is a topic I will often revisit, especially in the context of race.

The way I was raised, I was never used to going out of my way to achieve. I was blessed to be book-smart, so achievement in school wasn't a problem. I was circumstantially permitted to do very well in martial arts at a young age. But, I didn't realize for a long time how important it was to push myself past my natural ability or how things already were.

Some people say that they believe they can accomplish anything. I do not, but I love proving myself wrong.

It's sad how often people fall into a broken mindset. Our souls become crippled through life experiences and negativity. Then often when we do achieve, not everyone, if anyone, is supportive.

I saw this quote as part of a piece of art once:
"The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly"

I don't mind appearing small, because I have become someone that I can be proud of.


  1. The higher we soar, the smaller people view us from below.

    :) love the username. <3

  2. I'm trying really hard no to be complacent as well. Although it is tempting. LOL

  3. I agree that we can not all do anything we want, but that through Christ we can be the best version of ourself. So glad you decided to blog.
