Dear Reader, Let’s Talk (Day 4)
Nigga why are you here? Lol, I know it came off rude and obnoxious but I just wanted your attention. But no, in all seriousness, why are you where you are right now? Why are you sitting in that office chair reading this blog? Why are you in that Starbucks sipping that (insert weird coffee type here) which is probably mixed with Jack Daniels because happy hour started 12 minutes ago? Why are you on that couch in your shorts listening to whatever tune you downloaded illegally from one of my homies blogs. And by homies I mean the New Music Cartel. So….did you answer those inquiries yet? Why are you here?
Fuck is your purpose? Have you recognized your purpose at your job? In that relationship? In that friendship? In that campaign you just signed on to be apart of? Seriously. We go through life moving from job to job, chick to chick/nigga to nigga, check to check without questioning the purpose of being there in the first place. Rarely do we ask ourselves, “Ok, what am I going to learn from this situation?” Why is that? Do we not care about purpose anymore? Have we stopped defining roles when it comes to certain things? What’s good with that?
Like I’ve stated before, I’m starting to realize a lot of new things lately. It’s like you guys are getting a glimpse of how my brain is currently churning. Kind of fun because you get to go through this transition with me. But back to “purpose.” There’s a purpose for everything. I think we’ve lost sight of serving a specific purpose when it comes to situations in our life. We’re just so used to going through the motions that we don’t implement purpose because it probably causes a headache. Or maybe no one even ASKS us what “purpose” we’re attempting to serve. Right?
Someone SORT of asked me what my purpose in life is lately. It wasn’t direct, but the inquiry definitely sparked today’s entry. But the thing is, it’s not just with work. What’s your purpose in that domestic situation you’re currently in? I know ALL of us are in SOME kind of domestic situation right now lol. Whether ya’ll are just fucking, causal daters, mental mates……whatever. Do you know your purpose? Has your purpose in that situation been defined so both parties are on the same page? Seriously, just step back and ask yourself…”What am I doing here?”
I wanna here from you guys. You can email me if you want OR hit me on Twitter….whatever. I’m just curious as to what your purpose is in life right now. My purpose you ask? Well when it comes to UHTN? It’s a provider and outlet for new and hot music. Moreso for NEW music and NEW artist because the title BLEEDS that. I’m not going to front, there comes a time where I get PIIIIIIIIIIIISED off with how people approach me via email and in person because they want to get “exposure.” But then….I took a MEAN step back and thought “Hey DICKHEAD, your site is called “YOUHEARDTHATNEW” why WOULDN’T they approach you?” That’s my PURPOSE right? To put on the unsigned fella who deserves a chance to be heard. That’s MY purpose. So I will serve that purpose with a smile. I almost lost sight of that purpose but I got it back now.
So before I leave to go get my haircut in preparation for my trip to Toronto tomorrow, I want to make sure you guys know your purpose. Even if you don’t tell me, write it down in your phone. “My purpose is….” Accomplish that purpose everyday you wake up. And if you don’t want to? Find a new purpose so you can vacate THAT purpose for the NEXT nigga attempting to serve THAT purpose. Cool? Cool.
