CJism #8

CJism #8: Two points tonight Quantity is not indicative of quality. Men: the number of women on your hip doesn't make you more appealing. In fact, it may be the reason that your relationship status always says complicated. Women: Attention may come from the innumerable amount of suggestive selfies you post, but it won't be the attention you deserve. Ever wonder why everywhere you walk you hear whistles? It's not because you walked by a sports complex. Respect yourselves. A good image is a start to a good life. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJisms‬ ‪#‎RespectYourself‬ ‪#‎BeGenuine‬ ‪#‎ImageIsEverything‬

CJism #7

CJism #7: Life is so short. Sometimes we don't realize how short it is. And one way to never move forward is to be stuck on the things you wish you could do over. You'll never see the future living in the past people! Stop beating yourselves up. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and some of you have been through true hell. So the fact the you are still here just goes to prove how strong you really are. Keep your heads up. As long as that heart keeps beating, there's hope around the corner. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJisms‬ ‪#‎KeepYourHeadUp‬ ‪#‎StayStrong‬ ‪#‎YouCanMakeIt‬ ‪#‎LifeGoesOn‬

CJism #6

CJism #6: Just because someone looks happy with something, doesn't mean you should have it too. Everyone has something, or someone, that is specially made for you. Stop searching in the reject bin for a priceless artifact, and wait for your one-of-a-kind to find you, whatever that may be. You'll be happy you did. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJism‬ ‪#‎BePatient‬ ‪#‎TreasureWhatsYours‬ ‪#‎DontEnvy‬

CJism #5

CJism #5: If you don't have a valid reason NOT to do something, then you have every reason to do it. Stop putting off things until the next day if you don't have an obvious obstacle stopping you. Accidents happen, but laziness is uncalled for. Our generation needs to wake up and be useful of our time. Motivate yourself to do and be better than you were yesterday. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJism‬ ‪#‎motivation‬ ‪#‎BeBetter‬ ‪#‎DontProcrastinate‬

CJism #4

Today's CJism is short and sweet. CJism #4: Love is not the destination. Love is the journey. Make sure you never shape the way you love to the way someone else loves. If everyone did that, then love would become ordinary. Love should NEVER be ordinary. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJism‬ ‪#‎LoveYourOwnWay‬ ‪#‎NoOrdinaryLove‬ ‪#‎LoveIsAmazing‬ ‪#‎RealLoveLasts‬ ‪#‎LoveIsTheJourney‬

CJism #3

CJism #3: Life is like a song, a song that only you can write. Think about it. You wouldn't take the beat from "Fine China" and start singing "Here Comes the Sun" would you? It's called a copyright. And only you hold the copyright to your life. So here is how to write the song of your life. 1. Decide for yourself what you want the melody to be. And make sure it's one that's so catchy that people sing it without even knowing it. Basically, leave a legacy you would be proud of. 2. Your feet are the beat that carry you through the streets. In other words, make sure you choose your paths wisely, because one wrong turn can throw everything off. Don't let people be your gps. Be your own metronome and set your life's pace to what works for you. 3. Finally, color your life with only things that will make it brighter, not darken it. If something makes you cringe on the inside and you get that sinking feeling that you should let it go, then you probably should. Not everything is meant to be. Your song is almost finished! Alright, now mix it down....finalize it....export the file, aaaaand.....well? What are you waiting for? Start the music! ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJisms‬ ‪#‎WriteYourOwnLife‬ ‪#‎LifeIsOneBigSong‬ ‪#‎StartTheMusic‬

CJism #2

CJism #2: If someone treats you like an option, leave them like a choice. Nothing and no one is worth belittling yourself. If they don't accept you, then let their palm accept the door knob as they leave. Don't lower yourself to be accepted by people that call themselves friends when they treat you like a heavy bag. Be who you wanna be and be friends with like-minded people. If you have to change to be accepted, it's not a friendship, it's an experiment. Accept who you are, not fake friends want you to be. ‪#‎ShakeTheFakes‬ ‪#‎AcceptYourself‬ ‪#‎LeaveThemLikeAChoice‬ ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎CJisms‬

CJism #1

CJism #1: Never let anyone decide your path. Never let love, or what you think is love, cloud your judgment. It doesn't matter who chooses to leave your life. Let them leave! That's more space for real people to enter and stay. Your success and your character aren't measured in how many people like you or how many people you can trust. They are measured by how willing you are to be true to who you are, no matter who comes and goes from your life or how many friends are in your circle. To those who thought you were in love with "the one", stop chasing the runaways because they were never for you. I've been there myself. It feels like the world is ending, like you just lost your best friend. Truth is, a real best friend never leaves. So don't settle for situations that always leave you heartbroken. They aren't worth changing who you are. Trust me on this one. Be yourself. Never let someone change who you are, no matter how persuasive they try to be. Just be you. ~C.J. ‪#‎cjknightmusic‬ ‪#‎justbeyou‬ ‪#‎CJisms‬ ‪#‎letlovefindyou‬
