It's Your World! -part 1

It’s Your World! (Part 1)

If you are not a fan of Common, I highly recommend that you become one. He is one of the most talented artists coming from a humanistic, love everyone point of view. His lyrics are inspiring and inspirational. He has a song on one of his earlier CD’s called “It’s your world”. This has got to be one of the best songs ever! There is a spoken word at the end of this song that I want to talk about for a couple days. I want to break it down and talk about my interpretation of it… This will be the “It’s Your World Series.”

“Be gleeful everyday, for being the best swimmer among 500,000.” - It's Your World (Feat. Bilal & Pops)

Every day that the good Lord blesses us with, we should be thankful, joyful and live that day like it’s your last. Gleeful is a powerful word because it means that we are full of jubilance; meaning great success, way far over the moon and triumphant. The last part of this line talks about being the best of the best. Being the best does not mean that you need to surpass others. Being the best can be trying things you never seen yourself doing. Being the best, can be you being in school. Being the best, can be you helping others. Being the best, can be you doing what you love. Being the best, can be YOU…being the best YOU!

Think about it…
