Look Good, Play Good

Posted on

I had a football coach in high school that said something to all of the DB’s and it stuck with me ever since. He said…

“if you’re one of my DB’s you must look good. I refuse to have any DB of mine wearing landsharks.”

At the moment I probably died laughing, but that statement had a lot of meaning to it in my head. Days where I just throw some sweats on and a t-shirt are just another day in the life of Kory. Some days are great and others are bad. The walk I have is just a normal stroll, but ohhhhhh if you catch me on the right day and I have a fade…. you might think I’m a whole new person.

My walk, my talk, everything about me is new and improved. Days like this any bs that comes my way I dodge. I look too good I refuse to let something so simple ruin my day.

Isn’t it crazy how our whole mindset can change when we put something new on? Go out and buy your girl a new wig and I bet she’ll walk in the room like she’s Beyonce. I want that fresh fade confidence even without a fresh fade. My Granny told me something this past weekend and I loved it, she said…

“sometimes you have to dress yourself up, go out buy a bottle of champagne, and celebrate yourself sometimes. You don’t need someone else to give you the glory you see inside of yourself.”

Sometimes in life we work so hard to get the satisfaction of others. Even when we think we’re doing it for ourselves we deep down still lust for the acceptance of others. That’s toxic as hell though, no one can tell you how to be you, how to create something the way you wanted it to look, or how talented you truly are. I feel real accomplishments come from knowing you can do something in your head and actually turning it into reality. I’m at a point in life where I don’t feel I compete with anyone. Yes, I look around to see where my competition is, but that’s more so to see what steps they’re taking and see if they may be able to help me achieve higher levels. My only competition is myself, I challenge myself daily to be better than I was yesterday. I don’t care if I only learned one new word, that’s one new word I can use to substitute all the curse words I’d prefer to use. People might feel like I’m a blellum, but hey I don’t care at the end of the day lol. All in all, when you look good, you feel good, when you feel good, you do good. Future said “Dress it up and make it real for me…… whatever that fucking means..” make it real. Focus on yourself and grow daily, don’t spend your youth chasing different versions of everyone else, upgrade ya self. In the wise words of my dawg webbie “IZUP”
