My whole life I've been all over the place. I was constantly moving from house to house and city to city which was a little hectic. But the main thing I loved about it were the people I got to meet. Now, I didn't have a lot of friends but it was a decent amount. I was surrounded by a very diverse crowd and got to experience different cultures, ideologies, and outlooks on life. I'm blessed to have known those people. Having friends with different backgrounds made me more open minded and when your mind is open, you learn a lot more than you can imagine.
I guess you can say I'm cultured or whatever. :) But when I moved back to my hometown, I realized I had no idea who I was. I barely knew anything of Black culture. So I became determined to embrace my people and share my culture with others. I was doing tons and tons of research in and out of the library for at least a year because I had to teach myself about the true essence of Black people. And it's not what we're seeing today.
Amongst my studies, I found that there weren't many differences between cultures. The more I learn (yes, I'm still learning), the more I see similarities. I'm not saying we're all exactly alike but we do have a lot of the same core values. With that being said, we should be accepting of each others backgrounds and become more unified at the end of the day. That's the purpose of my blog; to create cultural diversity. I love seeing people from all walks of life helping and bonding with one another. It warms my heart and I would love to see moments like that everyday!
