No one can do it better than you

Your Black is Beautiful

Procrastination, living life to the fullest, don't wait until tomorrow do it today, Purposely Living

Now or Later…

Nice text, very beautiful, very true ….! My friend Casey shared it with me today 1.22.19 – author Unknown

 

Later

Hardly the day started and … it is already six o’clock in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday and it’s already Friday.

… and the month is already over.

… and the year is almost up.

… and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed.

… and we realize that we lost our parents, friends.

and we realize that it is too late to go back …

So … Let’s try, however, to take full advantage of the time we have left …

Let’s not stop looking for activities that we like …

Let’s put color in our greyness …

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

And yet, we must continue to enjoy serenely the time that remains. Let’s try to eliminate the “after” …

I do it after …

I will say after …

I will think about it after …

We leave everything for ‘later’ as if “after” was ours.

Because what we do not understand is that:

after, the coffee cools …

after, priorities change …

after, the charm is broken …

after, health passes …

after, the children grow up …

after, the parents get older …

after, the promises are forgotten …

after, the day becomes the night …

after, life ends …

And after that it’s often too late ….

So … leave nothing for ‘later’ …

Because always waiting for later, we can lose the best moments,

the best experiences,

the best friends,

the best family …

The day is today … The moment is now …

We are no longer at the age where we can afford to postpone until tomorrow what needs to be done right away.

So let’s see if you’ll have time to read this message and then share it.

Or maybe you’ll leave it for … “later” …

And you will not share it “ever” ….

Even share with those who are not yet “seniors”.

Enjoy today. Don’t want for tomorrow

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.

Black is beautiful quotes

โ€The secret to attraction is to love yourselfโ€ – Deepak Chopra

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.

Positive Living takes conscious effort

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.

Half full

I much rather see a cup as half full than half empty. It is deliberate and extremely beneficial to me holistically.

Thank you

Thank you to my 200 Followers. I truly appreciate each and every one of you and wanted you to know I don’t take your likes and follows for granted. I do my best to follow up, respond, comment on each person. If I do not – it’s still a work in progress and I am striving on doing much better.

Every like is an experience because it comes from a person with a real life, a real personality, with interesting blogs and contributions, and not a made up profile. I value you and deem you worthy. Thank you once again.

All the best to you and I pray 2019 is much better than any other year previously. May God’s favor be ever upon you hereafter.

Happy Old Year!

Sustainable Happiness

Sustainable Happiness

Iโ€™m in the subway 12.28.18 6:48 am looking at this poster about sustainable happiness and my brain is all over. Whatโ€™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 donโ€™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 !!!

Happy New Year, Influencer

We are almost there

A brand New Year is almost upon us and I am hoping, praying for balance, wisdom, strength, consistency, love, patience, kindness Respect and mindfulness for myself and everyone in 2019 and onward.

May your journey be easy.

Influencer, kindness movement, mindfulness, say no to bullies, violence is not the answer

I am not the one

I am not the one

Why is it do difficult for humankind to just be kind? I’m really baffled and at loss for words ๐Ÿ˜ข

Someone recently sent me a most disturbing video of a very young man being lashed on his bare buttocks quite severely by a group of men.

I am not the one to send this type of nonsense. I don’t subscribe to anyone taking it upon themselves to be law enforcers…apparently the young man had stolen something.

I would have lived to poll the ones beating him. It seems they have cast the stone of guilt and are guiltless themselves.

I am not the one as this type of behavior is bullying in my opinion. What about this young man’s young and fragile life made them strip him of all his clothes, expose his face and his private parts to include the giant welts on his buttocks as they shipped him, to social media ?

What if they someone decided to be judge, jury and enforcer to you or someone you love? What then?

A few years ago someone else found out….i am not the one after they sent me a video of people burning a man alive in a remote place somewhere for a crime of some sort…

I do know this!!! but I am not God. Do not take human life and mistreatment into my own hands NOR. Do I take it lightly when others do it. So please know this..I AM NOT THE ONE please do not share such atrocities with me.

I read things and then I have to re-read them. Then I wonder to myself..is this for real? What cave like behavior is this?

Then a see of other questions ensue because I just don’t get it!!!! People!!!

Why is this referee not fired on the spot?

Is the world of white people looking on at how African people are still being treated?

If so, where are you? Where is your outrage? Why in 2018 soon to be 2019 this type of behavior is still allowed?

Slavery ended but we seem to be treated more and more as subhumans and no outrage from all creed and race except us Africans.

What cave like behavior is this?

Positive Change

You are the key

If you desire something, only you and effect the process of achieving that something.

Photo credit click image

We tend to believe we are stuck in a place or with someone, sometimes repeated behaviors, sadly because that is what we trick ourselves into believing. We can’t see the future. We exist only in the here and now dilemma.

But, it takes one tiny step towards what may appear to be an impossibility for you to see a light, it may just be a glimmer, but if will get brighter and brighter the more you dyrp towards it.

Set daily goals to achieve so that you don’t step backwards. Even if you fall back momentarily that should be a win.

Whenever we โ€failโ€ or fall there isusually a lesson learned that’s the win to propel you forward. Giving up is not an option.

The you in 6 months, one year, 5 years will be completely transformed.

Positive change oftentimes involves people, places and things which you have no power to change. But, you do have power over yourself.

Change yourself and the positive changes will naturally occur. Don’t be afraid to change your outlook to include people, places and things. Surprisingly they will come along once you stand your ground and implant your mission.

Either they go along or go away. Either way you keep forging forward to keep positive. Mind you, this is not about hurting others. It’s all about making a better you. Sometimes others become better too but the focus has to be you first.

Attribute of a Ruler, Influencer

Mature Audience Only- Dominance???

Dominance

What does it mean

Photo credit

Man woman

Aren’t we the samePhoto credit

Animated ?

Maybe intellectually

Spiritually

Emotionally

Not physically

Does the physical difference imply superiority and therefore dominance one over the other ?

GooglePhoto credit

Or, does it suggest completeness…The very reason to come together to share, to love, procreate and then grow into something better and more beautiful than self.

Dominance is just control.

What is given, not what is taken is important and beautiful.

You cannot dominate what isn’t given freely.

Any good emperor, king, ruler will concur. His subjects follow him unconditionally based on his ability to rule with a great woman beside him. He looks to her for advise and rules with heart, wisdom, integrity, decisiveness and fairness.
