Dream BIG!

Hello gorgeous.

So winter is here, and off to a very ugly start! The new spring semester of school has started, and I have a huge amount on my plate! As I am getting closer to transferring, I've been asking myself this question: "Why am I doing this?"

I do not take my education lightly or for granted, I believe having an education will set you free. I am so blessed and appreciative to be able to learn and liberate my mind, I honestly can not imagine my life without school. But I am getting older and growing up, and my education is now leading me towards the career I want to have, but why am I doing this?

It truly feels like I am stepping into a new playing field, and many of my childish thoughts and actions are having to be left behind. I am stepping into adulthood, and I am on the verge of starting my life. But why? Why not take the easy road and subject to the life my environment has for me? Why not become a stereotype? Why all the struggle? Why all the stress?

The answer to that is because I have to. I have to be greater than the numerous sorry stories of my environment. I have to shatter the stereotypes to make a change not only for myself, but for the generations after me. I have to struggle through all of my obstacles because I believe the victory will be worth it. I have to endure the stress in order to make it to the top.

I refuse to be anything other than the best; I am determined to reach my maximum potential. So I'll be fearless. I'll be a pioneer. I'll be resilient. I'll be tenacious. I'll fight until there is no fight left in me, and then get back in the ring to fight again. I will not fall victim to fear. My dreams are so palpable I can feel and touch them. I believe life has something incredible to offer all of us, and all we have to do is reach out and get it. I don't know about you, but I want what life has for me! So the next time DOUBT comes along to ask me why I am doing all this, I will tell it because there's something in store for me and I refuse to let it go to waste!

Peace and love!

Will The "Real Mikey" PLEASE Stand Up?

Hello gorgeous.

Its a new year and a new day! I said I was going to leave a lot of things in 2009, and start and try some new things in 2010...and I plan to do just that! But before we get to all that, I need to address an issue of mine!

It felt like in 2009 I was sitting in the passenger's seat of my life, and I didn't accomplish or achieve many of the goals I felt I should have. I let all the hassles and obstacles I endured steer me wherever they wanted, and now I'm forced playing catch up! But I think its best to learn from your mistakes and try again then to be down in the dumps and not get back on your feet at all.

So for this year I'm going to do things very differently! For one thing, I want to upgrade my personality. I've always believed that first impressions were highly important, but for some reason all my first impressions turn out horribly wrong! People generally always think the worse of me when they meet me for the first time! Once they get past my exterior and get to know the "real me" they discover that I'm nothing of what they thought I was initially, but damn that takes a lot of time and work! They usually think I'm this flamboyant, pretentious, stuck up and obnoxious gay boy. Or they think I'm really shy, reserved and docile. And neither of those things are who I am at all!

I'd like to think of myself as charismatic, irresistible and adorable (Haha just kidding)! I know that I am a nice guy, and I'd like to show more of that persona than to have to everyone thinking the wrong things about me. Now that does not mean that I am going to morph myself or kiss a bunch of ass to get everyone to like me, because lets be realistic everyone is not going to like or be able to tolerate me! But there is no harm in being genuine, sincere and the best you that you can be at all times! If the public is not going to sip my cup of tea, I'd prefer it'd be because it was not the flavor they were looking for, rather than they misunderstood it at first glance.

This year I am going hard. No exceptions, no excuses. And the only way I can do that is by being the best me I can be! So its about time I started living my life for me, and being myself 100 %. I've got nothing to lose at this point!

Peace and love!
