When a Snap Chat Filter Makes You Reflect.
Playing around on SnapChat. (Side Bar: I usually do this when I have my contacts in b/c the facial recognition doesn’t work with these cat eye glasses.) Swiping through, I found this cute roses crown. Kind of like the classic “THOT” filter but with roses and a lot cuter. Anywho, I started to think about the actual flower. A Rose. And what makes it grow….in some cases, people use rich soil, seaweed, but what really came to mind, was manure. Shyt, defecation…whatever you want to call it. It also applies to life. These past few years have been “with the shyts”. Life curve balls, getting in my own way, other people getting in my way, and the list goes on. But beautiful things have blossomed through dealing with “the shyts”. Something as beautiful as a bed of roses.
I thought about lot of “shyts” I’ve been through and how they’ve helped me come to great positions. From bettering myself, to new opportunities, even leading me to new horizons, if it weren’t for “the shyts”, I wouldn’t have my roses.
So the next time you find yourself in a shytty place, prepare yourself for the roses. In life you need the go through the shyts to get to the beautiful places.

I just like to write and create stuff. These are the diaries of how I'm living in NYC with sprinkles of life lessons I've learned along the way!
