You already know this, too, right? Consistency is the key that unlocks the pathway to our dreams. Once the door is open, it is up to us to take those daily steps toward our destiny. ❤️
But you already know this, right? The mind is a powerful ally. If we can conceive our dreams, and buy into our thoughtful imaginations, then we can fix our minds on how to make it come to pass. ❤️
Dear Reader, I cannot begin to imagine all the particles and viruses in the air that have the potential to harm our physical bodies. But they exist. And if most of you could see what’s actually all around us, with the potential to take us out, some of you would never leave the house. SomeContinue reading “Instead of Fear, Try Prevention”
Yes, the above snapshot reflects how I was feeling nearly ten years ago, as I posted a poorly crafted note within my private app. I am so thankful I’ve grown from these petty observations, but between you and me, I believe it is still unfortunate that certain reality shows continue to air. Seriously, what have they really done to add value to theContinue reading “Why It’s Important How We Spend Our Weekends (and with whom)”

Fathers better beam like the sun and hang the moon to get more than a card or a pair of socks…
We piled a lot into the last weekend, didn’t we? Americans celebrated a new federal holiday, Juneteenth, and we also celebrated Father’s Day. Yea!
I wish I could tell you I did something mind-blowing for either occasion, but I was otherwise obligated. So obligated that I neglected to show respect for fathers on any of my social media accounts. My oops!
So to all the real fathers out there, I want to wish you — all the best, and may your families be blessed.
Did you catch what I wrote?
Am I the only person who too often ascribes “real” to fathers?
Of course not.
We (as a society) don’t discriminate against mothers that way. We usually assume that all mothers are the greatest. Right? I mean, mothers have done the laborious work of carrying, for approximately nine months, this growing seed that feeds off of the mother’s body to create a child that will slide through a birth canal and be pushed out into the world. Indeed, a woman’s work is hard. So we cheer in reverence, hooray for mothers!!!!
They deserve a holiday. Well, at least some of them deserve a holiday. And y’all know I am telling the truth. While I don’t intend to be a downer, we must admit that there are some seriously poor excuses for mothers out there. Am I right, again?
Specifically, but without calling names, we have all heard about women who have driven their kids into lakes, women who have left the security of one family to begin a new one with their teenage student. And what about the women who have kids to get a check? You know, the ones called gold diggers and other unkind words. Even so, regardless of those nefarious acts (minus the first one), come Mother’s Day, someone somewhere will make them feel good about performing a natural act, whether they really are a loving and nurturing parent or not.
The nationwide celebration from slavery begins today and so much more. Dear Reader, As Americans we can celebrate that we live in the only nation that fought a war to end slavery! So why aren’t we celebrating Jubilee Day, too, as a nation? For as long as I can remember we (members of the NAACP)Continue reading “Happy Juneteenth Day!”
Getting the messy thoughts out of your head and putting those words on a private page (not TWITTER) can be healthy.
☀️Happy Sunday! I had no idea my pastor would be teaching on kindness this morning when I created these designs a couple of days ago. But I’m grateful for the confirmation. Feel free to share the sentiment and the images. 🙏🏽
Staying in the same lane makes for a boring, behind trip. But the trip might also make you rich and famous. If you’re into that. Entrepreneur magazine defines a target market as “A specific group of consumers at which a company aims its products and services.” That definition sounds easy enough yet many of us authors and entrepreneurs areContinue reading “Why It’s Hard to Stay in Your Lane and Why You Must”
