    If you are like me, then you have the habit of being so focused on where you want to end up in life that you don’t pay enough to the things you are encountering right now in your present.

    We are all very aware of our potential and where we WANT to be professionally, educationally, financially and even family wise. It’s pretty much the basis of why we do the things we do and make the decisions we make.

    One thing that we can’t forget is that we are living LIFE. Life has the crazy ability to make us love things when everything is going well and hate things when all hell seems to be breaking loose in our lives. It’s our human nature to feel this way and its foolish to think that you haven’t felt this way at some point in your life.

    I am a firm believer in the relationship between the heart and the mind. These two entities embody the essence of who we are. Our minds create the thoughts and ideas that we physically carry out. Our hearts determine the magnitude of the effort shown in those areas. It takes time for the relationship of the heart and mind to be on the same accord. We often find ourselves in(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

  • If It Ain’t About the Money…
    Comments Off on If It Ain’t About the Money…

    Stack of One Hundred Dollar Bills U.S.


    Money…Money…Money! For as long as I have been living (26 years), one of the first resources I was introduced to was money.  As time has progressed, the concept of money has been brought to a larger scale.  This is definitely not a negative by any means, depending upon how you interpret the message of money.

    Over the past few years I have gained a growing concern, not so much for money, but the way the idea and concept of money is being shown and perceived by my generation and future generations to come.  It seems that the ideology of money is becoming a tactic to steer people in the wrong directions and even leading to tragic circumstances.  It is my goal and daily passion to “get back to the essence” of what life is all about so people can understand that they have complete control over their lives and not allowing materialistic objects, such as money dictate them.

    Here are some key factors to keep in mind when dealing with the concept of money(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    Marriage - Sacred Union or Modern Trend


    “I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part”

    This is one of the most powerful phrases used by the bride and groom in a wedding ceremony. A verbal affirmation not just to God, but to each other and also everyone who has received the privilege to be in attendance for this occasion as well that they will do everything in their power to live within the union of their marriage and let nothing come between.

    The rate which marriages are happening is higher now than it has ever been. By the same whim, the rate of divorce is at an all-time high as well. What seems to be the issue as to why something so sacred is not being able to withstand the test of time?

    Here are a few things to consider (based off of my observations of failed marriages) that those who are pondering proposing or are in the process of tying the knot to keep in mind(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    Intention -vs.- Perception - The Saga Continues


    As time has progressed, I have come to the understanding that the concept of “Say what you mean and mean what you say” has become somewhat extinct in today’s society.  We live in an era where it is extremely hard to take someone at their word when they say something.

    •  Is it because they can’t be trusted?
    •  Are we indirectly more paranoid than we are willing to admit?
    •  Do we place ourselves so much higher than others that we force them to “prove” certain things through action, but not being willing to do the same in return?

    In my opinion, I feel that there can be a “yes” to all these questions, although it may vary from person to person.

    Intention and Perception is a problem based on the idea that there is a giver and a receiver in order for intention and perception.  I feel there are some key factors to take into consideration when it comes to making sure both parties are on the same page.

    GIVER: It is your responsibility to disclose the information being stated in a way that is clear cut and precise.  If there is something you need to say to a person, before saying the first thing that comes to mind, try forming the statement in a few different ways and choosing the one that is least confrontational, leaves no room for confusion and(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    C.A.N.T. (Commonly Associated with Negative Thinkers) - Copy


    As time has progressed in my life, along with the expansion of knowledge I have gained, I have come to observe that some of the smallest words in the English language tend to carry a very powerful message in both negative and positive ways.  Of the many words I have taken time to really analyze, I seem to have the most disdain for the word CANT.

    Can’t is a GENERATIONAL TERM that has destroyed the lives of many people throughout time.  Culturally speaking, the African-American race, along with many others, has suffered mental enslavement from this word.  When you are in a situation where you are forced away from your country, family, and way of living to a land unfamiliar to you to be a slave, there is not much to believe in.  Those responsible for these actions understood this concept all too well and used it as a catalyst to make the concept of telling a slave what they CAN’T do a reality.  Not every person chose to accept CAN’T as an answer.  Through many acts of bravery, fights for freedom, and equality, the(CLICK HERE to Read More…)
