I woke up this morning to some sad news. Another artist of my generation who inspired real music connoisseurs like me to appreciate real hip hop music, passed away. As the saying goes, “Give me my flowers while I’m still here.” Don’t we get it? Life IS precious!
I had prolonged my health fitness journey, going on-and-off the wagon. Just recently, I had my annual physical with a new primary care provider. I’m taking time with a day of doctor appointments soon (next week) and claiming it to be my “Mental Health Day.” I need to be selfish for a while. In spite of my journey, I need to take care of myself. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. There are too many daily reminders to NOT know.
I look forward to the challenges ahead. I’m grateful to see them! Some people can’t say that today. Just be grateful. There’s only 1 YOU.
NOTE: This blog post is in honor of Mr. Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor, member of A Tribe Called Quest. His physical presence is missed, but his contribution to the group and to Hip Hop music lives on. Rest in peace with The Creator.
