Your name, does it define you, or does it confine you.

The world is full of double standards, do yourself a favor, be true to yourself. (Bujabs Dennis)

A rose by any other name, would smell just as sweet, we all know this.
So what’s in a name, a sense of identity? Some supposed ideal suggesting purpose and belonging? I fail to understand why so much importance is attached on names. Names are just that, names.
Personally, I’d like to think that Dennis does not encompass fully the individual I am. Indeed, I would go ahead and categorically state that Dennis is not me. Perhaps, right now, you are thinking that Dennis Ohuru has lost it, perhaps you are thinking, what the hell he is talking about denying who he is. Indulge me, allow me to expound, I say Dennis is not me for the following reasons.
Dennis is not an explanation, neither is it a definition, Dennis is just, what they mention to get my attention. The name in itself doesn’t elaborate my deepest desires, nor does it reveal the passion and ambition that is fundamental to the person I am. My name doesn’t in any way showcase my abilities and talents, nor does it instantly grant knowledge of the inner workings of my brain to third parties upon introduction.
In the end, it falls upon you, yes you, to define yourself, never letting anyone tell you who you are, but rather, telling them who you are. Live however you want to live, love whoever you want to love, be whoever you want to be, not because that’s what you have to be, or because you are expected to be that, but because you owe it to yourself to be who you want to be.
And now you, like me, are in the know, your name is not you, if and ever you doubt it, refer back to this article

Let the rest of your life, be the best

I have been alive long enough to know that life is all about making memories.

A phenomena that science and human ingenuity in all their unrivaled brilliance have failed to solve is aging, its simple, we are born, we grow, we grow, we grow still, we grow old, then we die. That’s just how life is.

I absolutely have no problem with that, death scares the shit out of me like every one else, I don’t have to like it, but I accept it. Because the secret to happiness is accepting what you can’t change, when you do, you become so much happier.

And so I have always known and accepted the fact that, one Wednesday, I will die. Yet right now, in this moment, I am alive, and it falls to me to create the best memories I can, so that when my day comes, I am not filled with regrets of what could have been.

My word, to anyone that will listen, is , eat what you want to eat, wear what you want to wear, love whoever you want to love, fuck whoever you want to fuck, be the person you want to be when you want to be. Because in the end, It is all about YOU. Your life is yours to live.

So live it on the edge, turn a new page each and every day, get out of the societal cage, and pledge, to not only exist, but to live, for life is for living and not living up tight.

The rest of your life, still has the potential to be, the best of your life.
