I walked rainy new york city streets looking for inspiration. sometimes you look for the most incredible scenes, for the most beautiful streets, for the most captivating people... and somehow, somehow a cab glistening with drops of rain grabbed my attention. the droplets of water dressing the mirror, windows, and the yellow paint screamed out to me. you know, along life’s journey i’ve found things i was not looking for more times than i can count. while in search of something i thought i wanted, i found exactly what i needed. that’s an interesting phenomenon, you know? to find what you weren’t looking for. to search for “this” and find “that” and realize “this” is exactly what you needed all along. life has a beautiful way of guiding us to the things we’re in need of. the important thing is that we embark on the journey. along the journey we find what we need while we’re searching for what we think we want. many of us were looking for specific friendships and found other ones, realizing they were just what we needed. many of us sought love in one place and unexpectedly found it another place along our journey. we went looking for one career and found another along the way, one we truly love. the beauty of life, to present us with what we need when we’re looking for something totally different. that has been my story for a lifetime, and i expect it to continue to be that way. i’ve committed to never stop searching, and in doing so, i’ve found exactly what i’ve needed, even when i haven’t been looking for it. hopefully i make sense. hopefully that makes sense. anyone else experience this? searching for one thing, yet finding another? only to realize you found exactly what you needed. it amazes me. it amazes me. just like this cab. not a incredibly foggy skyline showcasing new york as i intended this day, but a rainy cab 🚕. i’m rambling again, family. hopefully you’ve all had a beautiful day. i hope you have an even better night. i hope you all find exactly what you need on your journey, even if you’re not looking for it. the most important thing is to stay committed to journey. you cannot find if you do not search. ✌🏾i #loveyall
more than ever, i swear.
