T.D.I.R. Part Three: Commitment

To some, the word is as daunting as its length; they see it, and automatically associate it with something too tough and can't be done. It's looked at as too much of an obstacle; something that can't possibly be won. It's seen as a concept that only applies when dealing with something else, whether it's a person, a job, or something so good, it has to be from kind of dream. Little do they know it's much more internal in nature, more than they've ever seen.

People walk away from stuff everyday, and why? The reasons are numerous and just as vast. Maybe the return they put in is coming slow, when it was expected to be quick and fast. Perhaps society deems it okay to just give up, which also explains why the elite, in any walk of life, consists of a select few. Whether it's music, family, sports, or any other endeavor, the desire to try, improve, flourish, and succeed in their eyes clearly outweighs an inconvenience or two.

Plus, there's a personal sense of fulfillment that comes with commitment; finding a way to get it done and persevere. Speak it into existence and keep at it, and before you know it, your destination will come into focus and the finish will be near.

T.D.I.R. Part Two

It's one of those dreams that came while being wide-awake again.

Weights on my shoulders, lowering myself down and rising back up. The exercise is routine, yet the thoughts swirling within were anything but.

Something flashed quickly in my mind, but it had to wait. It dangled right in my face, and didn't even require any kind of bait. Can this really be done? Does it even have to? It would be more efficient to do it the old-fashioned way, but doing it like this may lead to more discovery than words, sentences, and other correspondence can ever say.

It's something to think about, and best believe, it won't take long. All it's gonna take is a lil' reassurance, and just like that, I'll be gone.

T.D.I.R. (Turning Dreams into Reality)

It takes a lot to allow yourself to let go and dream.

You have to remove yourself from the reality, the usual occurences, and how they seem.

Thing cool as it is to dream, how much better would it be to make those same dreams come true?

In order to do so, it'll take a lot more lettin' go than I've ever been used to...

...but I'm willing to try.

Life is too good to complain.

I've taken two trips to Manhattan in the last 30 days to do media work for Nike. From this day forth, the only brand you'll see on my feet is Nike. Well, American Eagle, too, but they're not a sports brand, so it's cool.

Familiar faces are acting familiar. Newer ones have emerged, favorable or otherwise.

Grad school is almost over. Time to get these Ph.D. applications fired up.

It's football season, which means for the next five months, I will be the total opposite of the ideal and eligible bachelor. Friday through Monday will be occupied by football. Hey, I've been free since January, so there are no apologies being made on my part.

God is good; not some of the time, but all the time.
