Perspective – Is it all how you look at me?

Possibilities

Black is beautiful etsy

Maybe can be certainly

Cannot can be can

Weak can be strong

Incapable can be capable

Disadvantage can be advantage

Black is black and beautiful and certain, which means I can be black and strong and capable with an advantage just because I’m black every day means I am positive and filled with possibilities.

Race card

It’s all how I look at me, not how you look at me. My perspective is everything because my possibilities are endless.

If you are offended there’s not much I can say to help you. However, I’m hopeful many will receive the message. It’s time society wakes up to the plight of the black world. If you are black and you don’t agree with the content of this video. That’s too bad, but I am not the one to tell it too. You can view it or not. knowledge us power

Attitude, balance, Purposely Living, significance, using silence to restore balance

Silence is restorative

I’ve found this to be a very powerful truth.

I can talk and talk and find no healing, nor resolution, but as soon as I shut my mouth, open my mind and keep my heart reasonable ( mind you, I didn’t say … pure because honestly who has a pure heart? Let’s be real).

Good against evil

We try to be as pure as we can by balancing good against evil, and that’s the best place to be in the balance where you are trying. I am scared to death of the extremes. They both create chaos in this world.

I am writing to release the tension I’ve accumulated over the last several day. Tough and heightened tensions I don’t usually experience, especially Seems like I’ve not been able to find simple solutions to any one problem I’m currently addressing. Saving grace is my positive perseverance and attitude.

So I find the positive my immersing myself into complete silence sometimes for hours. No radio, music, other voices, magazines, books, and my computer or phone.

I seek answers in silence along with peace for my own wellbeing. Without my peace I am not myself so I seek restorative silence.

Happy Birthday Aunty Joy 1.9.19

Happy Birthday Aunty Joy

We are more like sisters than aunt and niece but you’ve always been that person I look up to because I know your heart is always in the right place.

I can always remember you coming to my aid when we were children. My brothers and I always reminisce and lovingly about how overprotective you were of us. That’s just you 100% and I know today you are fiercely overprotective of your own children. They are fortunate to have you as their momma.

There’s no guessing with you what’s on your mind. It shows on your face 🤣 and in your eyes. This is a rare thing today since most people wear masks of deception, thus taking away their authenticity unfortunately.

You are unpretentious, precious, always open to learning while keeping things balanced, and you are SO full of humor. I don’t know another like you dear Aunt.

I love you dearly and I wish God’s truest fulfillment of his plan and purpose for you and yours.

I celebrate you with prays and thanksgiving. May the heavens rejoice today as we celebrate and love you today 1.9.19 on your special day. God bless you pressed down and overflowing.

New Beginnings

Join me on my journey as I make my nose dive into a style of writing I’ve not really tackled before…fiction. I’m excited, motivated and challenged. I’m not waiting on the right moment anymore. I’m diving in and experimenting – win or lose. At least I can say I tried .

Steps along the journey

Every year before I take my Christmas tree down, I usually do a silhouette.

I’m drawn to silhouettes because they are mysterious, alluring and thought provoking.

African sunset is what 2018 looks like to me

My thought when I saw this one..Good bye 2018 you were great. Hello 2019 what secrets do you hold? What’s beyond the door of the opportunities I see and those I don’t?

Hope

I pray for strength, consistency, energy, positivity and great support around me daily.

Happy Blogging to All

I am big on positive thinking , even in the midst of not so positive situations. I don’t just say positive things, I exemplify it in my day to day. That’s just my philosophical approach to living.

In Loving Memory Of my Sister in Law 12.30.18 Veralyn Carol Simmons

It’s just unimaginable to me she died on a routine hospital visit. Albeit she suffered from diabetes but this is not suppose to happen like this. I feel really sad for my ex and his family.

Sustainable Happiness

Sustainable Happiness

Redfairy

I’m in the subway 12.28.18 6:48 am looking at this poster about sustainable happiness and my brain is all over. What’s that?

The ad talks about jobs come and go physical beauty fades, market rise and fall. Even close relationships can end but the benefits of philosophy last a lifetime. This is all part of philosophyworks.org

I can agree with all of this and add that sustainable happiness is about finding ways to manage something. What is that something? Your worth!

So what is sustainable happiness but worth in your self!

If you don’t find worth in yourself you are doomed to making the same mistakes over and over again. You have to VALUE yourself against all the issues.

What mama or papa may or may not have said, the negativities imposed on you as a child or teenager or even as an adult you have to turn it off and say enough is enough.

You are enough and you are worthy

This morning 12:48 am. I come across this video by Tyler Perry on Joel Osteen’s on IG

Tyler Perry on Joel Osteen – Aim for Worthy

Analyze what worthy means. Look at yourself in the mirror. Make faces if you must. I do. Sleep, eat, rest and keep your temple healthy and enjoy me time. Enjoy the company of others on your time and find the things you enjoy. Not what anyone defines for you.

What you talking about ?

TAKE A CHILL PILL OF WORTHY. DO YOURSELF THAT FAVOR. LOVE YOU TODAY !!!

Ujamaa

On the fourth day of #Kwanzaa the black candle is lit at first, then the utmost left red one, then the farthest right green one and at last the next red candle, placed at the left hand side of the black one, is lit. It represents the 4th principle, i.e. #ujamaa (oo-jah-MAH) or Collective Economics.

The #fourthprinciple is then discussed with the present members. The Unity cup is shared and the candles are turned off.
