Love Yourz - A Lyric from J. Cole

Listen Now:

Let's listen to a part of J. Cole's song, "Love yourz", because there is an amazing message in it.

"And that's a man who was once in your shoes
Living with nothin' to lose
I hope one day you hear me
Always gon' be a bigger house somewhere, but man feel me
'Long as the people in that place love you dearly
Always gon' be a whip that's better than the the one you got
Always gon' be some clothes that's fresher than the one's you rock
Always gon' be a woman that's badder out there on the tours
But you ain't never gon' be happy till you love yours

No such thing as a life that's better than yours
No such thing as a life that's better than yours
(Love yourz)".

It is all about appreciating what you have which is everything you need and more. It is a natural tendency to be ambitious and look forward about getting more. He talks about a bigger house, a faster car, and a hotter girlfriend. But the truth is there will always be more to reach for. If you only find contentment in possessing that ideal, then you will continue to feel like you are coming up short in life. So, love yours. Look at what you have in your life already, and how amazing that is. The enemy of good is better. When observing what you have in your life through a lens of positivity you can begin to see that you already have everything you need. The rest is just a bonus.
