Finding myself.

I remember who I am

Finding myself.

I remember when you'd whisper sweet nothings in my hear. Then kiss me down my neck as your fingers traced my skin.

I remember youd do everything you could to make me squirm and made me feel like I had to have you.

I remember when you'd bring me small surprises or show up unexpected because you wanted to show me how much I meant to you.

I remember when you had everyone fooled that you loved me. Hell. You had me fooled.

But truth be told, when no one was looking, you were screwing your ex.

When we broke up, and tried the whole "friends" thing, it didn't go as planned. You gave me false hope that we'd get back together one day. We even ended up sleeping together again. Just for you to say you felt nothing between us.

So after everything was said and done, and I remembered exactly who I am, you didn't like that. In fact, you tried everything you could just to keep me around.

But none of it worked.

Because I remembered I don't put up with shit. That I don't play games. I remembered who I was and where I stood and no one, not even you, is going to knock me down and keep me there.

The biggest lesson here was letting my walls down too quick. Letting someone get so close just to hurt me.

Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
