Shortcuts and Trapdoors (Throwback Thursday: Lost files )

     Before I get started let’s be clear…I am in no way shape or form, judging, or knocking anyone’s hustle . I’m not bitter about my position in comparison to others because I’m too busy focusing on my own grass . However, it was heavy on my spirit to say this :
 Yes, everyone has a past and you had to do what you felt you had to in order to survive . Yes, you grind hard for yours and somehow some way you made it to the top True, you had to get a little “dirty” and broke a few rules, but now you got your money , fame , man , car , house , business, and stamps on your passport. Turned it all around and you are “clean” as you start a new path.
Yet the sad reality is people on the outside looking in your world , whether it be on social media , reality TV, or just word of mouth don’t know the ugly side of the game . The hell you had to go through to just get a piece of “heaven”. How no matter how things may appear your story isn’t over and tomorrow isn’t promised .

 These followers have no clue what they are getting into. they’re signing up for some shit they just may not be built for. The probability of success in this game is lower than your chances of getting signed to the league . This isn’t a game of chess !! This is Russian roulette !!! And every move and risk you take is yet another spin and pull on that trigger. That’s what hurts me the most. But the harsh reality is ignorance is bliss and still to this day, no matter how high the body count,

AIDS rate,

constant reports of conspiracy that leads to incarceration,



broken homes,





the quiet loom of karma,

and many other vices of this game that people are well aware of , they are STILL willing to risk it “all” for a handful of fool’s gold.

The moral to the story :

Side note :This was one of my first blogs and due to that I feel it may have gotten a tad bit overshadowed . So I decided to exercise my right to repost. Lol


  1. Values are principles and ideas that bring meaning to the seemingly mundane experience of life. A meaningful life that ultimately brings happiness and pride requires you to respond to temptations as well as challenges with honor, dignity, and courage.

  2. No one knows your struggle but you and God. Even those closest to you in the flesh don’t know your heart — what hurts you and what heals you. Once we get our little peace of “heaven” on Earth, we must remember that everything belongs to God. If we’re not using it in a way that makes him smile. What’s the point of having it? Nice post.

  3. I feel you. That’s why I try to be as transparent as possible about my experiences. I know too many people that would call me out anyway, lol.

    1. Amen and same here!! My logic is its not worth it if u know ten years down the line the last thing you want to happen is your child stumble across “your past ” and had questions.
