What motivates me?

“You gotta find a way to survive ‘cos they win when your soul dies.” – Tupac Shakur

At some point in my life I came to the conclusion that I have no choice but to keep on going until I get to where I want to be, and since that day, that’s all I’ve been doing.

What keeps me going is the fact that no matter how bad my situation in life may get, I know that one day it will get better. If I work hard now, one day my hard work will pay off – I’d be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour.

I don’t have a bad life, but it hasn’t been easy. God, my friends, family and my dreams have kept me going.

And of course, MUSIC has had a big impact on my life. It truly has kept me going through the toughest times in my life.

In my opinion, once you’ve decided where you want to end up one day and what kind of lifestyle you want to lead, you’ll keep going until you get there.

Anda and meeeee

Recently one of my besties Anda sent a song to me and harassed me to listen to it (she loves doing that). As usual, I complained and procrastinated but eventually I got round to listening to it (and as usual I ended up liking it).

She said the song inspired her and well, it inspired me too. It’s just a real feel good tune I guess.

I especially like the song because it urges us to fight for what we believe in and pursue our dreams no matter what anyone thinks! I had to share it 🙂

Take a listen…
