“This is my canvass…”

There are some things that I refrain from doing or pursuing, because of tradition.

Something that my life is far from.


Although I respect and uphold some traditions, I think tradition is to straight line for me. There’s no sparkle, nor spontaneity to it. Just the same old stories you know the ending to. Nothing changes.

I read something yesterday by the Millionaire Mentor on IG. He said, society wants you to be mediocre; average.

I began to think.

The system we’ve been taught, that “seems” like a normal honest living, is mediocre to the MAX!

Now there’s nothing wrong with it, but the system clearly puts you in a specific pool to be ordinary.

Simply put – get married, have kids, and die.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is precisely why success is the survival of the fittest. Because rerouting any other way, other than the way “they” taught us, you’re bound to struggle. #HungerGames

Question is, can you with stand the struggle until…?

It’s just that simple. Go to school, find a spouse, work a 9-5, have kids, and live the American dream with an honest and okay income.

If we don’t have all of that, in that order, we feel inadequate.

Stop and think about it.


If you live a non-traditional lifestyle, and you’re wondering why you have it so hard, I’m here to tell you it’s gonna be hard.

All of the fairy tales, romance dramas, and everyday life style related material you see, does not apply to you.

You create your own.

Sometimes love is not found early on. Sometimes it’s found in your forties.

Being okay with a non-traditional life, in a traditional world is tough. But if the fly by the seat of your pants, moment to moment, take your breath away, kinda life is for you, dammit enjoy and except your decision to paint with your own brush!
