Just A Thought

Have you ever been driving past a cemetery and wonder how many people are actually six feet under that died and didn’t get it right when they were alive? How many people died with regret as the last thing on their heart and mind? Anger on their heart and mind. Bitterness on their heart and mind. Unforgiving, stress, feeling inadequate, incapable, incompetent, unaccomplished, unfulfilled, lonely, hurt, destroyed, forgotten about, etc. If you rode past a cemetery and thought this then you and I share something in common.

You know one of my main reasons for writing a blog and trying to venture off and do more. I promised myself that I am going to operate in all of my gifts and talents in this lifetime. I refuse to allow a day to go by where I am not operating as who I am designed to be. I refuse to let opportunities past me by. Because when I take my last and final breath there will be a no doubt when I make it to heaven that I did not waste my life on this earth doing the bare minimum.

I just wonder do people think much of themselves to tell themselves that.


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.

  3. Beautiful post! I think about this often! I don’t want to have any regrets when it’s my time. I‘m hoping that when it’s my time I’ll be in peace and ready for when Jesus returns.
