In the 90’s, this market was full of affordable vegetable and fruit stands. Now, it’s full of budget-friendly food vendors from all over the world. Which is why I love going to markets! Plus I just love the ambiance of a bustling market. ••• El los 90’s, este mercado estaba lleno de vendedores de vegetales y frutas. Y hoy en día, está lleno de barata comida, de muchas partes del mundo. Por la comida barata y el ambiente bullicioso, me encanta ir a los mercados.

If at first you don’t succeed....
Get the fuck back up, breathe, reset with a brand new mindset and get back to it.
(BREAK DOWN: twice I failed to get up after pausing 235lbs for 30 seconds but the third time..... the beast was unleashed as shown in the video) I’ve learned to be patient with myself, to enjoy the progression without hating myself for not accomplishing it the first couple times. Now I let “failure” motivate me and fuel me, which in turn is really not failing at all, it’s setting the precedent for the journey unveiling. The mind is the most underrated and limited tool of all time. We all use it at different levels but we underestimate its ability. If you ever say “I don’t think I can” or “I’m not sure if I could” then you’re mis-using the golden tool you’re blessed with and devaluing your power. Talent and potential is only valuable if you CHOOSE to work, dedicate time and invest energy in the right place. Nothing worth having will work unless you do, unless your heart mind and soul are all in it. Next time you feel like you “can’t”, redirect your focus and if you want it that badly try over and over.... and over. Perseverance and a strong mind is winning❤️ 🎧 Slippin @future @meekmill @808mafiaboss
-Dear Black Son, there's people you've never met, who fear and hate you for something that you never did. And these people are so self-convinced, sometimes they pull the trigger, call that self-defense. And in that sad insanity, their fear is realer to them than your humanity. But that's their problem, it's not yours. Listen to your pop for a second. These are the confessions of a father broken hearted, who don't know how to pull his only son out of a target. They lied when they said it was the bottom where you started. You were a king long before them ships departed. You are not defined by anybody else's crimes. You don't need to answer for what happens in their minds. You are not confined by their imaginary lines. You don't need permission to exist with the divine. In fact, you don't need permission from no one, including me. You need not do anything but be, just breathe. Whatever you dream, let it mean you're free. Tears on a cheek never made nobody weak. Sometimes we got to grieve, let it burn, let it bleed. Then let yourself heal, pray to God it will. You've got a spirit that a bullet can't kill. That doesn't make it any less real. They say it takes a man to raise a man. You're slipping through my hands like grains of sand. And here I stand, tryna wrestle with the hourglass. Maybe see how long I can make an hour last. Raising a man, who's slipping through my hands like grains of sand. And here I stand, tryna wrestle with the hourglass. Maybe see how long I can make an hour last. Dear Black Son, I can't protect you like I want to. I never judge you, all that I can do is love you. And that's all anyone can ever do is love you. All I can do is wonder how can anyone not love you? They recognize divine in you. And so they try to find themselves by defining you. They're living in a myth that they don't want to loose. And now they're too terrified to face your kind of truth. But every time you shine, it's proof that they might've threw a chain around your body, Never Conquered You.-
