This is deep…

The power of image in our perceived successes and perceived failures

"It’s not about whether or not I’ll be stopped but when and how many times I’ll be stopped".

On being a model, media image construction, growing up for girls and even racial profiling.

CELIA CRUZ - “La Vida es Un Carnaval”

Todo aquel que piense que la vida es desigual,
tiene que saber que no es asi,
que la vida es una hermosura, hay que vivirla.
Todo aquel que piense que esta solo y que esta mal,
tiene que saber que no es asi,
que en la vida no hay nadie solo, siempre hay alguien.
-Ay, no hay que llorar, que la vida es un carnaval,
-Y es mas bello vivir cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval
-y las penas se van cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval,
-Y es mas bello vivir cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval
-y las penas se van cantando.

Todo aquel que piense que la vida siempre es cruel,
tiene que saber que no es as,
que tan solo hay momentos malos, y todo pasa.
Todo aquel que piense que esto nunca va a cambiar,
tiene que saber que no es asi,
que al mal tiempo buena cara, y todo cambia.
-Ay, no hay que llorar, que la vida es un carnaval,
-Y es mas bello vivir cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval
-y las penas se van cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval,
-Y es mas bello vivir cantando.
-Oh, oh, oh, Ay, no hay que llorar,
-que la vida es un carnaval
-y las penas se van cantando.

-Carnaval
Es para reir
-No hay que llorar
Para Gozar
-Carnaval
Para disfrutar
-Hay que vivir cantando
-Carnaval
La vida es un carnaval
-No hay que llorar
Todo podemos cantar
-Carnaval
Ay, Señores
-Hay que vivir cantando
-carnaval
Todo aquel que piense
-No hay que llorar
que la vida es cruel
-Carnaval
Nunca estar solo
-Hay que vivir cantando
Dios esta con el
Para aquellos que se quejan tanto.
Para aquellos que solo critican.
Para aquellos que usan las armas.
Para aquellos que nos contaminan.
Para aquellos que hacen la guerra.
Para aquellos que viven pecando.
Para aquellos nos maltratan.
Para aquellos que nos contagion.
How would your life be different if you walked away from drama, gossip and verbal defamation? Let today be the day you speak only about the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same. Those that refuse to support you CAN be ignored by you. It’s as simple as that. Incredible things happen when you distance yourself from negativity and those who create it. Don’t get caught up in drama. Just walk on by.

"4. You are part of the drama circle."

So true and yet quite hard to live up to. #goodmantras #goodlife

portraits-of-america:

“I have nine brothers and sisters who live in Baltimore, but I was adopted and raised in Florida. The circumstances in which I grew up were very different from the trenches of Baltimore where my siblings grew up. The person who adopted me had a doctorate degree, while my biological mother had me at 14 or 15 and didn’t get an advanced education. My father is in my life now, but he wasn’t in the early stages. My oldest brother is currently doing 40 years in prison.”
“And what do you do for a living?”
“I work for the Reentry Initiative, which helps people get reintroduced into society after prison.”
“Why do you do it?”
“I’m very aware that I made it because someone else gave me a chance—my siblings were a lot less fortunate. I feel that I have an obligation to pay it forward.”

I am a fan of your blog. How do you stay so motivated and on top of things?
thejumpingbee thejumpingbee Said:

successobsessed:

I stay motivated by thinking about where I want to be, who I want to be, and the kind of life I want to live. Basically by daydreaming about the future. I’m also motivated by the idea of being a good student and a hardworking person. I want that to be a part of who I am.

To stay on top of things you need something other than motivation though, because motivation’s too volatile. You need discipline. You need the discipline to work hard and stay on task even on days that you don’t feel motivated and you don’t feel like working… I’m still working out the discipline part myself

Very important.

You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.
1. Forget the past.
2. Do stuff.
3. Talk to strangers.
4. Stay in touch.
5. Stop bitching, venting, and complaining. They don’t make you happier.
6. Go outside. Vitamin D is better than drugs.
7. Don’t expect it to last forever. Everything ends and that’s okay.
8. Stop buying useless crap.
9. Make mistakes. Learn from them.
10. Spread joy.
11. Don’t bother with people you hate.
12. Don’t become someone you hate.
13. Play the hand you’re dealt.
14. Choose not to take things personally.
15. Don’t put it off.
16. Help is everywhere.
17. Give without limits and expectations.
18. Be enthusiastic, dammit. Being above everything makes you an annoying prick.
19. This too shall pass.
20. You are already enough.
21. What would you do if you weren’t scared? Okay, now do it.

So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.
