Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#69
WE GOT ARMS BUT WON’T REACH FOR THE SKY.”~Common (Be)
As I go around and present, excuse me I mean, perform, “7 Days of Hip Hop Affirmations to Change Your Life,” I have found it interesting how few people actually answer when I ask a question. It usually goes like this: I ask a question of the crowd, there is a brief silence (I just wait) and then one brave soul reaches for the sky and spits out their best answer.
What’s the hesitation all about? Well it can be folks don’t want to feel embarrassed if they get the answer wrong, they don’t want to be the only one raising their hands or in many cases it’s social conditioning that stops them. They have seen how people talk about the person who raises their hands to answer or ask questions. They have seen how folks tease you for getting something wrong. But, you know what, the one who raises their hand is the one who gets a free CD from me.
