Influential People

First things first my peeps! Today is Tuesday July 24, 2018 and it marks my 36th sober day and as always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT! I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

On an influential note! I don’t know if you might have noticed by now, but on the right side of this here crazy and boring blog of mine, there’s a widget that shows the names and links of people who I find to be influential to me. The truth is, that they are not influential to me, because they are rich and famous, they are influential because of what they went through and what they did accomplished in life. I personally think, that today’s youth, looks up to people who are celebrities, rich and famous as role models, only because. They don’t take the time to do the research in order to find out, where those people come from and what obstacles they had to overcome in life. But in a way, I do understand them, because when I was growing up in the neighborhood of Washington Heights in New York City, there were no role models that I could have looked up to. Back in the 80’s, when I was a teenager, the people who some of my friends saw as role models, were big time drug dealers. I can say that I was lucky that I saw them for what they really were. Hmmmmm! looking back now, my mother and father were actually my role models and the most influential people in my life. It’s crazy, but I never looked at them that way.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
