As humans we love to miss people when they are gone

After the death of both Nipsey Hussle and movie director John Singleton I have been watching alot of radio and tv interviews where celebrities have been commenting on the death of these two. Talking about what they mean to them and how much if a impact that both men we’re in their lives. However the trend that I keep witnessing is honor and celebration of someone’s death. I get it if you don’t know who these two men were and are you will probably become more educated on them through the news about their deaths. You will take a interest into Nipsey music and Singleton movies. You may even become a fan and grow to have a greater appreciation for them in what they done in their careers and community. Some common folk like you and I have taken to Twitter and Instagram and showed their appreciation and affection. Some have even got into arguments and disputes over others bad mouthing Nipsey Hussle and what good has done in the city of Angeles.

But that’s too late to show a person love when they are dead and gone. That’s too late to show an interest and invest in them. Hey, I hope both Nipsey and Singleton families are doing better toward the death of both men. However, I’m just using them to say that while a person is alive take every opportunity to let them know that they are loved and cared for. Don’t allow them to leave this earth not knowing your love and care for them. As humans we love to miss people the most when they are gone. And you know it don’t just have to be by death it could be because it’s time to move on out of one another’s life to bigger and better things. We have to stop torturing ourselves and hanging onto past memories. Walking around feeling sadden and unfulfilled that we could spend a last time with that person and say what we wanted to say to them and hear their voice for the last time. Cherish these moments that we have with one another because as humans we are not everlasting. We have a expiration date attached to all of us. We just don’t know when the clock will run out. So I’m not going to go as far and say celebrate each other. I mean we’re not God and that’s only reserved for him. I will say this, from this day forward don’t let a person walk this Earth not knowing how much they are loved, cared, respected and matter.

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.

  2. I couldn’t agree anymore with you. There is never too many times you can tell someone you love them and that they matter in your life.

  3. Facts!! I been meaning to comment on this post…yo it’s like you took the thoughts straight outta my braiiiin. I’ve been thinking exactly THIS!! Like GIVE PEOPLE THEIR FLOWERS WHILE THEY’RE STILL HERE kinda thing. Social media has made everything trendy, including the news of people’s death, so it’s like everyone just jumps on the bandwagon whether they were a true fan or not…it’s becoming abit ridiculous actually and kinda fake.

    • Yo, great minds think alike. I mean it’s getting pretty old and repetitive. Yeah that social media is something. It’s making our reality out to be REALITY TV
