Humble Pie.

  Well shit, I think my last post on here was when Miley Cyrus still had common sense, but I digress. Sorry for the lack of posting. I been busy trying to take over the western hemisphere and in my struggle for world domination and world conquest I've learned quite a bit about myself.

   People throw around the term "You aint shit" or "I aint shit" regularly in my day to day life and also on my time on social media. Some take offense to the statement and others embrace it wholeheartedly. My reasoning for this? I really aint shit. "Aint shit" in a nut shell means "Not special" for those of you soft headed thick weave ass people reading this. Embracing a statement like this is a way of keeping yourself humble, cause lord knows some of us, fall victim to thinking were above something, or above someone, or we're better than the next man because of something trivial. For some odd reason hoes on twitter think that a certain amount of followers equates to how special you are, Or in sneaker culture, the amount of IG likes and who follows you and shouts you out means that you're some cool ass dude with heat.

    I'll get personal for a bit. I work part time at a grocery store. Usually 3-4 days out of the week. 3 weekdays and 1 long shift on the weekends. The reason I got the job was at the time I had no fucking clue what I wanted to do with my life and I needed to figure some shit out with myself before I made any more moves, also I wanted to have a constant reminder that everyone started somewhere. That was 4 months ago, now I'm on the verge of doing some shit that I never would have dreamed of months ago and I'm in a position that many people will never be in their entire lives... and because of this I grew cocky and arrogant as shit.

   I started feeling as though I was better than my coworkers and my managers and that I could quit at any time I wanted. (In retrospect I honestly could quit because I can potentially make more in a month than they do in a year ). But its not about money or what I make or what I do. A pay check does not determine your self worth or someone else's. Getting paid more than someone else doesn't mean a damn thing at the end of the day. While I plan my moves, I work part time at a grocery store. I'm no better than the man working next to me. Just because you drive a certain car, or you own a certain pair of shoes, or you date a certain girl that doesn't make you special.

 I cant really explain more on this without typing a a new book to add to the bible. My point is realize that you are one of 7 billion people on planet earth, and it doesn't matter what you do in your life, you all die the same. Under the skin,under the muscle, under the fat and under the bone you are the same as the other 7 billion people around you, who inhabit this same small as rock in a small ass galaxy. Nothing you could possibly own will ever make you better than the next man or women.

This is my interpretation of "I ain't shit". I call it humble pie.
