Daily Word: It Was Written (Be Original)

AllHipHop Staff

Happy Wins-Day, my Purposeful and Powerful!!

Welcome to a great day and a great opportunity to do it better! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to being original! Nasir Jones once stated that "there is nothing new under the sun," which means that anything new has been thought of already! This is a fact! Any idea, thought, obstacle, or triumph has probably in some shape or form been thought of, defeated, or achieved.

The one thing that is new and is original is YOU!! Each and everyone of us has inside a unique DNA code that differentiates us from others! If you took two different people and gave them the same set of circumstances, I guarantee you that you will get different outcomes. The trick is understanding that and accepting the fact that you will NEVER find anyone exactly like you!

Be who you are and NEVER allow yourself to be forced to be something you are not! Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind! Above all, being yourself is the fastest way to bliss! Don't follow the crowd, your horoscope, or conventional wisdom. BE YOU!!

It was written.... To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.... And even though I don't fully know what Mr. Shakespeare was saying... I now write... To thine own self stay true; you must follow your heart wherever thou shall lead!!
