@Regrann from @universalconsciousness.1111 - I have learned a lot about never being afraid to speak my mind and not to keep anything inside. I have learned so much about life, but as your fellow person in this world and as a brother to all, I advise people to never be afraid to speak their mind. If you see something not right, speak up, if people are all over you, speak up, and stand up for your rights. People can talk and talk about things and hound you all the time, but they don’t really know what is going on with you and what your feeling mentally and emotionally and sometimes people run their mouth when they have no idea what you go through day in and day out with life. Life is a hard battle and in order to survive these days, you must always be strong and have a back up plan always. Speaking your mind and standing up for yourself is one of the main things about this day in age. Don’t accept people jump and walk all over you. Take a stand and go and stand up for what you believe in and your rights as a person. We all have been given the freedom and the voice to speak up. Nothing is wrong with speaking up, nothing is wrong with freedom of expression. Everything in life has its ups and downs, and there will be people who bring you up, and there will be others who bring you down. Life is a roller coaster and sometimes there are loops, curves and other things, but always be honest, talk straight, you can sit croquet, but always talk honestly, forthright because you have to be honest with yourself before you can be honest with others. When you respect yourself, you will need to respect yourself enough to stand up for yourself. You need to stand on your own two feet to fight battles with words to other people, but not in a hurtful way, but in a decent mature manner. You need to set ground rules, you need to put your foot down where needed. Sometimes people carry on and run off with their head, but sometimes you need to step up to the plate and get going. No holding back 🙌🏼🙏🏼🙌🏼

REPOST: "You can't help it. An artist's duty, as far as I'm concerned, is to reflect the times."
This week marks the 7th anniversary of @TheRoots@JohnLegend project, #WakeUp released September 21, 2010.
The WAKE UP album is artist collaboration at its finest:
Wake up holds a mirror to America and may inspire you to be active, be hopeful, be optimistic, be woke.
