In the beginning stages of creating HennCredibly Dope, I knew I needed a phrase or slogan. I mean everyone has one, right? Nike has “Just Do It”, and “Ba Da Bop Ba Daaaaa I’m Loving It” belongs to McDonalds. I needed something that would stand the test of time. After a few Hennessy shots…
#LiveLifeHD was born.
EUREKA!!!! I screamed as if I had just discovered that the volume of water displaced must be equal to the volume of an object that is submerged in it.
But what did it mean to #LiveLifeHD
At first, I honestly had no idea. It sounded cool so I ran with it. Posted it everywhere. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, I even put it on a t-shirt, which is still available for purchase at HennCrediblyDope.bigcartel.com.
It wasn’t until recently that I was able to add context to #LiveLifeHD. It can be summed up in roughly four words.
Staying True and Staying Positive.
You have a choice to make every morning you wake up and look in the mirror as you brush away last night’s lasagna. Live a truth or live a lie. To me, the only thing worse than telling a lie, is living one. Just ask Lil’ Bow Wow. Once you start living a lie, you’ll begin to lose the real you. The you that God only made one of. Why waste time, energy, and resources trying to be someone else.
The first step to Living Life HennCredibly Dope is to Stay True to oneself. Being honest with yourself and everyone around you. Giving others the same respect you demand. Most importantly, discovering and following your passion. There is no greater feeling than achieving success doing something you love to do.
Next is staying positive. Life will deal you a fucked up hand sometimes, but it’s important to have faith no matter how the odds are stacked against. Its cliché, but doesn’t kill you will truly make you stronger. Each obstacle you face will force you to dig down deep and discover that inner strength you didn’t know you had. Don’t ever doubt yourself and make the battle more difficult than it should be. Remember, it’s not yours, it’s the Lord’s.
HennCredibly Dope will document my experiences on my own journey to Living Life HD. It’s a journey that will be filled with highs and lows, trials and tribulations, but a journey I’m looking forward to.
