What is culture?

Is there a certain culture we should follow as women? as black people? as 20 somethings? as naturals?…etc.

Culture is a way of thinking, behaving or working that exists in a place of organization.

With that being stated, I have been challenged to question whether I am just following trends for my race, age, community or am I doing things because I really enjoy them.

Be mindful of what you feed your mind. What you watch, the music you listen to and the things you read all have a direct impact on your behavior. Recently I have served as a substitute teacher at a middle school and I have heard cuss words all day from pre teens. Yes it has annoyed me but I didn’t think it made a ¬†difference until I found myself using all kind of cuss words at the dinner table last night.

Be the wave, don’t chase the waves. Last night I went to a club and a club I knew I had no business being at. These days I don’t like clubs and out of boredom I ended up there.

I realize I don’t have to follow what’s popular because it’s popular to everyone else. I have to do what I like. I have to create my own culture and not follow what society suggests I follow. Even if I stand alone I have to create my own culture! I don’t want to look back on life and see that I did things everyone else liked & not what I truly like.
