Doing What You Doing ..

Hey World.



It's been a minute since I have engaged with you and given you any updates. I can't believe it has been three years (passed that milestone on June 8th, 2015) that I've been blogging. It has been real nice doing it, it's been a journey of its own. I'm really grateful to my family, my friends, people who just got to know me through the camera or through my blog first because some people followed me on Google+ before I realized every post I was making, I was sharing with only myself. I don't know how that setting got there but a year later is when I made this discovery, maybe that's the reason why many people could not find me in the first year. 


If you follow me on Google+ you will notice that most of my posts have been music, only because I'm slowly easing back into it - with all my social media. Music is one thing that I love so I thought, what a better time to share it while I'm deciding on what I want to present and record.


But hey! This post is not about me making excuses so let me get back to my main focus, however have you had the chance to check out my Open Mic.







If you have been wondering I have been good, I have been well. Back in January me and my immune system had a little argument which cause a cold sore (my second cold sore stressing-myself-related) and this occurred because I was thinking and overthinking .. working, being hard on myself. So my immune system decided to conversate and tell me I was being hard on myself and that's why I got that cold sore. Stressing myself, not time stress but putting myself under stress because I wasn't where I wanted to be. So, I want to take this chance to encourage everybody that no matter what stage of your dream, or on the road to your dream that you are at .. You will get there eventually, You can get there and You will get there! How hard are you willing to work for it though ?!


There are few things I have read these past few months which I will share with you.



First one, "Yes society brings oppression and sometimes that society is you who oppresses yourself." 
This little bit of knowledge literally means that yes society is responsible for oppression because they are the ones 
to build then destroy the ideal .. see it favors them one time and they be like 'ouu this look good for now' then they change their minds later and decide today we ain't feeling that ! 



So the rest of y'all who killed yourselves because you didn't meet the previous standard might have lived through the new standard or the new ideal that society may have going on. This leads into "A double-minded man is unstable, for his mind is everywhere ..". If you don't know who the freak you is, anybody and everybody will tell you who they think you are, so you need to know about yourself. You need to realize that no matter what anybody else tells you, no matter what you have told yourself about yourself in the past you are an amazing human being, you are an purposeful individual .. I'm not going to say unique (Pebble$ gon get ya !!).



It depends on how you perceive unique, if your unique is being this way today, being this person today and that person tomorrow dependent on what changes in society they you have not yet found your Uniché, yeah I'll make that a word. Who is supposed to be in Uniché .. YOU are supposed to be in Uniché. A niche is a place of comfort, a place where you excel it is where it doesn't matter what anybody says to you, you know you are the best and you tell them this is my Uniché !




You need to find your niche, your niche is your unique place .. your unique selling point like they say in business. What is so amazing about you that I want to invest time and space allowing you to speak your positivity into the room that I'm in, to speak your positivity into my mind. To allow the sound waves from your words and your mouth to get into my ears .. Are you really worth my time? If the answer is Yes I will continue listening if not there is an X button in the corner of the screen you can click that ish out !




So that is how we get to the point of Uniché, you have to be comfortable in the way you are and in this case you should be a single-minded man or woman. A man of one mind, one body, one spirit and soul. Everything should be in harmony everything should be in syncytium just like the heart, they are supposed to work as one. You are supposed to have a level of awareness and consciousness that allows you to be the best that you can be, to 
operate at the best level of YOU as the best version of you ..day in, day out !




When you find Uniché it's going to be very hard for anything or anyone to depress you because you know that who determines your happiness is you. So if you decide that today 'I'm not feeling so good but I will try', let it be because of YOU not because of somebody else telling you stuff or doing stuff.




Next one, "Anyone who does what they love will always look good doing what they are doing while 
doing what they are doing." I spoke to a homeboy of mine a few weeks back, I might have told him this or I wished I had remembered at that point in time to tell him that he needs to find what he loves doing then he will do what he loves. Only because it's hard enough not knowing how exactly you'll go about finding what you love doing, what you were created in this life to do then you have the pressure of parents on top of it. Sometimes or actually a few times you think, how are my parents gonna perceive me? what will they say? I got an older sibling who is doing this so how am I going to go about it? You just have to try and find a way to make sure you try to do something right while you're trying to tell them "Yo mom and pops, I really want to go this way but you know I tried my hand at this and I gave it my best and it's not working out or it worked out but this ain't where I find fulfillment". With that any wise parent would sit down sit back and think, where would my child best excel let me take in their suggestions or he's told me best on how I could help him out/ help her out.




You got to be real cerebral to get this one "Faithless men come as the opposition to your success, they do nothing less than destroy faith and fix fate." let me explain that to you. You want to succeed in life, right? I don't know any person who doesn't want to succeed and, the faithless man - is the 'friends' around you who say 
"Girl you can never do that", "Hey man, you really think you can do that .. do you know where you coming from" 
or "What's your basis though, you don't have no foundation where you going?". So you then have to tell yourself, 
there are people who have hit rock bottom, people who started with zero that own a lot; I am not them BUT they 
are examples of what hard work does, and what determination does when you want to succeed. If you want to succeed .. you will ! I have a lot of people who tell me " Yo Pebble$ it's easy to say that man, but in reality is it 
really like that? and I have to be honest, I don't know where your coming from because... I always tell you guys don't say you understand what somebody is going through unless you have been through it.




For example, 1- somebody comes to me to say I've lost a sibling who was supposed to be born but I never got to meet them, I can relate and I can understand because 'In The Moment Of Now' is dedicated to my little sister who I never got to meet.) 


2- If somebody told me about a miscarriage or something else my approach would be "No I cannot identify with you BUT I can comfort you because I haven't been through that".

3- Somebody says they have hit rock bottom before, I cannot truly say I have hit rock bottom, rock rock bottom. I have hit rock bottom to a level but everybody's rock bottom is different, some folks rock bottoms are softer than others. When you realize how they hit rock bottom and what your rock bottom looks like you will be like "Yup you stronger than me, we both hit rock bottom and much respect to our individual rock bottoms but it impacted us in different ways."

" You will not realize how hitting a rock bottom feels for some folks but you will come to understand that it impacts us in different ways, in different aspects of our lives, the ways that we think afterwards, the way that we relate and things like      that ! "

I hope you all enjoyed that, thank you for your support !

King . Wife . Noble Character .






Listen, son! Listen son of my womb!
Listen, my son, answer to my prayers!
Do not spend your strength on women,
Or your vigor on those who ruin kings 
It is not for kings, it is not for kings to drink wine 
Nor for rulers to crave beer,
Lest they drink and forget what has been they decreed
And deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
Let beer be for those who are perishing,
Wine for those who are in anguish!
Let them drink and forget their poverty
And remember their misery no more.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, 
For the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly,
Defend the rights of the poor and needy. 

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies 
Her husband has full confidence in her 
And lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm
All the days of her life
She works with eager hands. 
She is like the merchant ships, 
Bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night;
She provides food for her family 
And portions for her helpers  
She considers a field and buys it;
Out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
Her arms are strong from her tasks.

She sees that her trading is profitable, 
And her lamp does not go out at night.
She opens her arms to the poor
And extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows, she has no fear for her household,
For all of them are clothed in scarlet 
She makes covering for her bed,
She is clothed in fine linen and respect
Her husband is respected at the city gate,
Where he takes his seat amongst the wise.
She is clothed with strength and dignity 
She can laugh at the days to come.

She speaks with wisdom, 
And faithful instruction is on her tongue 
She watches over the affairs of her household
And does not eat the bread of idleness 
Her children grow and called her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:

" Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all "

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting;
But a woman who stands for greater and fears the Lord 
Is to be praised 
Honor her for all that her hands have done. 

First have a relationship with yourself, have a desire to have the above qualities as a woman .. you need to 
stand out in this life no matter what you do. If you're going to do something, be the best that you 
can be at that thing .. those things. Be encouraged !!

New Beginnings




" The biggest mistake is becoming part of what you hate."

 ... Damn that quote good! But I don't know who it's by, but for real hold onto this truth for a while the next time you have to hesitate before doing or thinking about something, OR you find yourself coming to an unnecessary compromise read this quote out loud and if your choice to follow what your heart doesn't follow comes up. Then it isn’tgood option, so don't follow. Just say to yourself, " Self this right here, I don't follow.”


PHASE II 

It’s a new year don’t be a stereotypical hypocritical. What could you possibly lose by following what yourself follows?? 

What’s the problem, a few folks who find safety in a norm that strips their shine, leave you? So you realize you have been good to someone only to realize they were just coping or tolerating your presence. If you just found that out, you were bound to find out sometime. This shouldn’t be news to you. You just need to wake up and be a servant to all, let them know “you wanna take a dump on my feelings and kindness “... GO AHEAD! I double dare you; I mean you do realize that tables turn, RIGHT! 

So you do to me today, Johnny tomorrow, Izakeisha the next day, Tutankhamen next week whoever else the next months, years, decades. When it comes for them, you will happily be in your own world of achievements and with people who truly deserve your time. 

A message for all in 2015 :

" IF YOU’RE STILL SLEEPING ON LIFE, ALL THE BETTER TO DREAM MORE DREAMS, IF YOU’RE NOT DREAMING NEW DREAMS, WAKE UP BECAUSE THE WORLD IS MOVING ON WITHOUT YOU. STOP SLEEPING & FIND A SPACE TO CONQUER ENOUGH OF THIS CHICKEN MENTALITY MAKING BIG DEALS OVER NOTHING ! YOU HAVE A BILLION DOLLAR SOLUTION FOR SOMEBODY IN THIS LIFE, START THINKING ABOUT WHAT IT IS YOU ARE IN THIS LIFE TO SOLVE !! I CAN’T BE THE ONLY ONE THAT DOESN’T WANT TO SLEEP ON YOUR TALENT, SOLUTION, ASSIGNMENT, PURPOSE OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT."

 Wake Up & Stop Underestimating Yourself !!



From Pebble$ with much heartfelt sincerity ..

#PeaceBeToYouWhichDisrupts




Revolution, evolution. 
Lord wake us up from this deep sleep of what society has sold for us to think.
They want to regulate our thinking and believe our stands for change and advancement are shrinking. 
Unknown to them we are fellows of a younger generation. 
Born to resist and birthed for change. 
We are tomorrow's radical revolutionaries. 
Placed in our set time and ripe season to venture out and take what is rightfully ours.
