Change

If you don’t know it yet, I pretty much embrace this concept of change regardless of what it brings with it. You are probably wondering what!?

Here’s the thing, in order for us to get to the positives, we must overcome the negatives, learn and never repeat it. Another way to not repeat it is to teach others. Growth does not come without ups and downs, or ins and owns.

So why not? Especially when you get an opportunity to learn something new. The pain allows you to sharpen your skills and emerge a better version of yourself .

Don’t misunderstand my “annoyance’” as resistance to change. Change is inevitable, and brings about evolution…while resisting or embracing.

The Power of your Tongue

How to affect change

I was listening to a YouTube and a Podcast where a particular celebrity was being maligned. It occurred to me, with all the more important issues in our community, why not expend positive energy with issues rather than individuals?;

1. Deliberate Poverty

2. Targeted abuses

3. Healthcare

4. Community And Economic Development

5. Improving Black Image in Media

6. Black victimhood for political advantage

7. Religion

8. Improving relations

There are a few celebrities who I completely abhorred regarding their public persona. Fortunately overtime they changed that paradigm and lived up to the potential I knew was within them.

I won’t name names but one has totally transform like a butterfly, the other is still in a cocoon stage.

Like us, celebrities are made of flesh and bone and I’ve learned I can’t allow their behavior to overly concern me. As parents and guardians we should not allow the next generation access if we do not agree with specific behaviors from celebrities or anyone for that matter. There is something quick and easy called turning off the radio and television. I have more control when I am mindful to use my power. I would like to exhort others to do the same rather than maligning another person’s character – deserving or not. We all have the power to change, just like the chrysalis transforms to a beautiful butterfly, people can change, but we shouldn’t further malign them just because we can, because social media gives us the power to do so. Be mindful, think ahead and put yourself in the other persons shoe. Be the change you wish to see in the world.

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.

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.
