Mind Your Business

Prince is gone. Now everyone is speculating about how he died. I do realize there is a natural curiosity. But I think most want to know so they can separate themselves from his outcome and say to themselves, ‘Oh he had that’ or ‘He indulged in that behavior,’ or ‘I don’t take opiates’ or ‘I don’t engage in that kind of behavior’ blah, blah. What everyone forgets is no one is getting out of this tip alive. All our hearts will stop one day. Fact!

It doesn’t matter how he died. He is gone. And the world is dimmer. People need to get some business and mind it. Chase a dream. Live a dream. Find a dream. Be so wrapped up in your thang that when someone dies, celebrity or regular person, you just say ‘What a loss’ or ‘Sorry to hear this news.’

Do your thing, live your life and don’t get caught up in the gossip. It’s not hard. Okay, let me keep it real, it might be a little hard to stop participating in gossip but trust me you will feel better about yourself when you stop speculating about others. Get some business and mind it.
