EMPT Classic: Poolside – Do You Believe

This classic EMPT throwback just seemed appropriate on this gloomy Thursday.  Where I am I?  Believe it or not I am in LA “where the sun is always shining”.  I would love to be by a pool or at the beach right now tanning my tiny little frame and checking out the scenery if ya know what I mean but alas the sun does not always shine in LA.  Oh well, I actually enjoy a gray day to help me concentrate on my work, but this post has some sunshine in it so press play and re-enjoy!

I’m back in LA, the weather is right, the food is great and the music is perfect. I’ve been traveling so much lately and I love it, there’s nothing like seeing new things and hanging out with new people to enrich your experience. It’s so easy to stay at home, hang out with people you’ve known since high school and relive the great memories forever…

Do you believe that we have brighter days?…”

One of my friends recently read a Bruce Lee quote to me that reads “Be happy, but never satisfied.” I’d never heard that before but it’s something I’ve lived by my entire life. I’m a pretty lucky guy, I have amazing friends, I do what I love and I don’t take any of it for granted but for some reason I don’t have it in me to sit back and be content. I don’t see a limit to where life can go yet all around me are institutions and customs that box you in. I don’t know about you but I’m trying to Christopher Columbus this mofo and explore everything the world has to offer. Listening to this song really made me think about all this so I came across the question that picture ask –

Do you believe in what you want?”

That’s something to think about man because so many things influence what we want. You could mess around chasing something because your friends do it or because it’s tradition or a million other reasons that have nothing to do with your personal desires and that type of action is a recipe for disaster. Long story short, know what you want and don’t be afraid to man up and get it. You may disappoint some people but in the end when you’re happy it will take a crazy person to be mad at you because of it. Alright, there’s much to do while in LA, peep this jam though, it’s perfect for all the holiday festivities. Enjoy.
