Welcome to my blog! My mission here is to spread a message of peace and positivity all the while sharing some of my thoughts, experiences, opinions, and knowledge. I have created my own concept/brand called “Lucramotives” which I will explain at a later time. For now, here is my first post.
How many of us can say we are an individual? Or we are our own person? Many of us are slaves to vanity and trends, among many other things, and are conditioned to following the status quo. We suppress our own thoughts and beliefs in order to be accepted amongst our peers. Maybe you bite your tongue in certain discussions out of fear that you will be looked at in a negative light even if it is the right thing to say! Nowadays, if one dares to be different then they get mocked or become the butt of the jokes in their peer group who all wear Jordans, name brand clothes, and listen to the same music. If you share an unpopular idea or live a certain lifestyle you become an outcast. It’s almost as if we are discouraged to follow our own path, have our own ideas and beliefs, drive a certain car, like certain types of clothes, etc. Basically, I’m saying all of this to emphasize staying true to who YOU are and all that comes with that. Don’t be afraid to go against the grain if it means staying true to yourself and your likes, beliefs, morals, etc. as long as it is for the greater good of yourself and the people around you. Never compromise who you are for nothing and no one. Some of the greatest minds ever got where they were/are because they stayed true to who they were/are and didn’t fall victim to the snares of society or the status quo. I will conclude this post with the following quote, “Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” – Oscar Wilde
