Sometimes, motivation and rejuvenation comes from complete strangers. Lovely, endearing, and kind strangers. A wonderful woman named Alexandra from Germany reached out to me on Instagram the other day and informed me of how inspired she'd been, so many years ago, from my blog. It touched me so much that particular morning because I've been dealing with my own batch of challenges lately. Her post instantly "inspired" me.

You never know what someone is going through. Sometimes a kind gesture can change someone's tone, attitude and demeanor, for the better. Oftentimes, when someone makes a gesture, they're led by forces they're not even aware of and think nothing of it... But to the delight of the recipient, it wasn't for nothing. It was because they were being used as as a vehicle to help uplift someone else. Remember that.

I thank Alexandra again. She made my entire day and propelled me to blog again.  Thank you so much!

"If you tell the truth, you won't have to remember anything." ~ Mark Twain

The truth can literally make us free, free from the limitations we have imposed on ourselves. The truth can set us free from the bondage of remembering the lies which blaze several trails to those who cross our paths. The truth can empower us with the ability to SEE our true selves when we look in the mirror or seek answers from within. It's not complicated. The truth can always be simpy stated. There aren't versions of the truth or truth scenarios. I have met so many people who can and constantly articulate "their" truth or "the" truth about certain situations, issues or dramas within their lives. However, within seconds of the articulation, they double back into pseudo rebuttles against their own truths in an effort to justify the actions they're taking that contradict, their own, TRUE understanding of the truths they hold. I figure either they enjoy living with a veil over their faces or they're not really ready to live their lives based on the truths they know to be the reality.

The key to our own personal power is in our minds. It NEVER matters what we tell other people in an effort to make ourselves appear happy, well put together, busy, successful, unsuccessful, in love, etc; at the end of the day, when the lights go down and there's no one around that you have to pretend to - you know "YOUR" truth. Use your truth to unlock the greatest (emotional, physical, career, relationship, life) success and power that "YOU" can imagine!

In short, if you can't keep it real with anyone else in the world, try to ALWAYS keep it real with yourself. Because at the end of the day...who in the hell are you trying to fool? And, why?

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Our culture is filled with fear. It drives us in everything we do. We’re afraid to fail and afraid to succeed. We fear never finding a perfect relationship yet fear what would happen if we did. We fear thinking too much, all the while, fearing we're not thinking hard enough. We fear being alive and fear dying all in the same breathe. Many of our dreams are being held hostage by our fear of failure, as well as, our fear of succeeding. Pigeon-holing ones talent leads to frustration, agitation, discontentment and self-loathing. What would it take, for you, to throw caution to the wind and GO FOR IT?

Only you can answer that question…

In life, it's important to surround yourself with like minded individuals; those who exude elements of yourself and of who you aspire to be. Look around at the top five people you spend the most time with. What do you see? Granted, some people serve certain purposes in your life. Understand your own baggage before taking on friends and relatives baggage. Can you stand to spend alot  of hours listening and playing psychologist, lawyer, advisor, refere, mediator, etc.? Sometimes people take advantage and for granted that your ears are theirs and vice-versa. Limit your whining output and limit the amount of whining you'll intake. Marinate! GO DO YOU ALL DAMN DAY!!!!

Sometimes it takes a complete stranger to change your life...to give you an epiphany or redirect your method of thinking. Today that happened to me and all I can say is, "Thank You"! In life, my mind becomes so clustered with thoughts, ideas, conversations, dreams, realities, methods, changes, maps, blueprints, detours, stagnations, impatience, pratical thinking, others worries, others concerns, dramas, that I can't sort everything out. I am hendered in my creative process, hence finding myself standing still instead of moving in a forward motion. However, I now understand, accept and embrace the knowledge I received this morning and look VERY forward to what's to come~ Sometimes you have to look life right in the eye, smile and bow your head in the presence of lessons, learning, growth and gratitude. I bow down to that which I have no control over. I embrace change as it happens; I live in the now and I patiently look forward to the blessing the future holds for me! Life is GREAT! I have NO complaints only appreciation of where I am, how I got here and for the power to be who I TRULY AM!

Hey you~

Hey you~

You visited me so many months ago and our affair was long, hard and uncompromising. I never loved you but fell victim to all the promises you ever whisperd to me in the dark of night. I laughed at things you showed me...believed you when you told me how much work I could get done with you by my side~ I even believed you when you expressed how relaxed I'd be after you seduced me after the lights went out.... Your caresses were soft and comforting. I was so tired, so ready for what you promised me only to realize that you tricked me. You weren't on my side, didn't care about me and my well being. Just like your sister. She promised me so many things too but wouldn't allow me to just be quiet, wouldn't be still so I could rest, talked me to death to the point where I couldn't think. Your sister exhausted me just like you! I want to rid myself of both of you forever and I will soon master how to do JUST that! So tell your sister INSOMNIA to kick rocks and you, Mr. Insomnolence, will oneday be someone I speak of in past expressions. I don't want to see you anymore...PLEASE leave me alone~ I just want to SLEEP!!!! LOL!

Christmas is definitely my most favorite holiday of them all! I'm always in a good mood and it takes a lot to bring me down~ I fly out tonight to meet the party crew, which is my crazy family, and we're going to have a very very very long night filled with jokes, laughter and spirits!

There are tons of gifts to wrap and I'm sure that will become part of the evenings festivities! I'm excited for the holiday and the New Year that's approaching! I hope everyone has a great day!

Over the past 30 days or so, I have appreciated being home with my mom. My perspectives haven't wavered not one bit. I think it's important, that in life, we often spend so much time around people we don't really know and who don't really know us that we tend to loose ourselves inside of ourselves until we are able to reconnect with family. ONLY family knows you from birth to now and even if they haven't been around you in years, your foundation is still there. Yes, we all change but in our everyday lives, we tend to bend, stretch, cover, disguise, and eliminate things about ourselves when we're talking to, meeting, and interacting with friends, co-workers, and newbies.

I find it very awe inspiring to be able to recharge with my family. I can be me ALL day and I don't worry about what they think because they will tell you! LOL! But it's all in love.

If you are blessed enough to have family, reconnect on a regular basis and keep tabs on your truth. Don't get lost in life by disconnecting with what's truly real. If there is a rift in the family structure, FIX IT! Life is way too short. Have a conversation and smack each other for letting the rift go on for so long! Don't spend another minute letting time go by~

I haven't been on here for quite some time but I have vouched to make a larger effort to blog! LOL There has been so many new developments in my life, and in trying to keep up  with everything, I've lost sight on blogging. My bad!

The past couple of years have been trying in so many ways but I'm FINALLY at a place of peace and understanding. So often in life, things make no sense in "real time". Only after time has passed and the ability to marinate on the events that have taken place, do we actually have the opportunity to SEE what it was we were supposed to be learning and if nothing else, trying to understand.

Someone posted something so profound and only now did I understand what it meant. It said, "The only people who need closure are those who aren't ready to let go". It was as if I had an epiphany upon reading those words. I now understand that if "letting go" hadn't happened, I would have been trapped in a world that wasn't meant for me. The world that has unfolded over the past 2 years is WAY closer to the life I was destined to have. I know that with everything in me! I humbly thank the "let go" because I have fully embraced the "new", the "possibilities", the "blessings", with all the energy, passion, zest, and excitement that I knew was still inside of me. 2012 is the brightest that I've ever seen FOR ME! However, I'm also aware that no matter what obstacles, challenges, and redirects that I encountered, I never took my eyes off of my abilities and my drive to ALWAYS "do me" no matter what.

I'm excited for the future! People, live and try to find the "YOU" in the midst of chaos and confusion. No matter what is going on in your life, "YOU" can't be taken away. You are all you have and if you're not taking care of "YOU" no one else will! Love yourself from the deepest place! Never leave you for anyone and keep your eyes on YOUR prize!

Be blessed!

Do you ever ask youself what you're doing? What did I do yesterday? What was I thinking? What am I thinking? What direction do I want to go? What confuses me most is what makes me continuously keep asking myself what? LOL
