Cool Isn't Always Cool - Motivation & Inspiration - by Alfred





Psalm 1:1-2 KJV
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. [2] But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.


   Do you want to be cool? Do you want to look cool? Do you want people to think you are cool?
   I'm about to share with you something that would shock you.
   Let's look at the definition of cool.
   No! not from the dictionary, but what it is meant when someone says it in popular sentences that include it.


WHEN THE WORD COOL IS USED IN POPULAR SENTENCES:

1) You look cool.

That means you are dressed according to the trending fashion of the day.

So you have reached out of your (own unique personality in your clothing choices) to become something (temporary) with the hope that people would accept your appearance more favorably.
  
That's sad. You have traded your personality in your fashion choices for a 'fictional - general - trending and temporary' personality.

2) Your dress is cool.

This means your dress is OK!

You see how the word 'Cool' means something completely different and positive here even though the sentences look so similar, and the word 'Cool' could hardly be looked upon as a word that could convey two extremely different meanings.

It is so positive in the second example, as opposed to the first example.

I could give more 'Sentence Examples' to illustrate my point further, but it all boils down to whenever "Cool" isn't used as a substitute for "Ok!", it's basically bad.

    Cool isn't something you should try to be. It shouldn't be something you aspire to.
     Anytime you aspire to be cool or do something that makes you cool, it means you traded your own uniqueness to become a poor copy of what many other people are pretending to be.


     DON'T BE COOL. BE UNIQUE. Then you'll be Ok! (Cool) Always.

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
