Basic Human/Women Right
Just because people walk naked does not mean they are begging to be raped which is what these massive leaks amount to. To these people, its about control and power over women. Women should bound together and say no to this attack and other forms also against children. No matter who you are or how you may or not be liked--you have a right not to be violated in such manner. Kim and Rihanna are human beings too and i am no fans of them. NO ONE DESERVES TO BE VIOLATED. (9/21/14)
No Condition is Permanent
"The circumstances of your life reveal who you are, not what has happened to u."--iyanla
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous-and how well i know it. (psalm139:14)
Atonement (Tiger Woods)
Someone once said we are not the sum of our failures and i always hold this to be true in order to propel myself from failure to success. I believe there's much more good in him and as far as i'm concerned the only people he needs to atone to are his friends and family; with his actions henceforth he will regain the public trust and respect which will be hard earned through his life changing behavior and ultimately redeem himself.
As for the so called women (mistresses), they reveal more of who they are first by sleeping with a married man and subsequently by their lack of shame and tact afterward. They also need to look within themselves and do some house cleaning in their lives as do some of us who take great pleasure at others shortcomings and downfall. Let us now give them all a chance to work on their lives as should we all after all no one is perfect.
In the meantime, I hope and wait to see how Tiger's life will be a shinning example of how to rise up like a Phoenix from the ashes wrought by his lack of discipline and poor life choices. Sure i was disappointed in him but my likeness and love for him transcends his mistakes because i know he is a human being like anyone of us. Keep your chin up Tiger because this too shall pass. Your time is not up--there's much more great works and deeds left in you. I believe in you and I know you will be an overcomer.
Learning to know and live with oneself.
The truth cannot break me, or waiver me; but it can only make me better and improved. How have i impacted your life, have i been an addition or subtraction? I came across these statement on face book a little while back and since then it has stayed with me. All I know is that this year is a year fulfillment for me. I intend to leave a positive footprint in this world. If there's something you know about me that can make me better serve you in your life, please let me know.

Make it Happen
Essence of Character
Memo to my Friend
Here is what I know to be true…
That every relationship has its ups and down
These ups and downs are opportunities for growth
Although for some it leads to relationship death
I realize that life is not easy for you right now
I am also dealing with some changes and growth too
Although our paths to growth leads in a different direction and tend to clash at times
I choose to see it as more opportunity for life lessons
So here is where I am….
I don’t care about who is right or wrong
Instead I choose to celebrate all that is/was good about our relationship
I want to thank you for being one of my life teachers
For the many times I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted in life
Somehow, you find a way to show me my stuff and then my path becomes clearer
And for always being there through thick and thin
I have recently gained a new appreciation for u in the past year because through your
Personal struggles you shine a beacon to the part of me that I need to work on
For that and the many life lessons you bring my way, I celebrate you
For without you I might not have found the lessons easy to grasp
I pray that you come out on the other side of your journey victorious
You are beautifully and wonderfully made
You deserve life’s entire blessing
Your forever friend
Let her heal
I don't know the whole story behind the Rhianna-Cris brown incident and i doubt anyone else does although it seems everyone has an opinion. Any man who hits a woman regardless of provocation is less than a real man. Anyone who wants to judge an abused woman should get educated about the "abused" . Take it from one who was guilty of the same offense. Just maybe then you will show some compassion for a fellow human being. Why are we so cruel to one another? We should all endeavor to be better human beings.
Panic, Stillness (April 26, 2009)
When you panic, you do things in fear.
The moment you think the thought;
speak the words;
commit the acts;
you know you are out of balance and out of control.
Yet for some reason,
you cannot stop yourself.
When it is over, you go into remorse;
beating yourself up, feeling bad, being sorry.
It is important to learn to stop yourself
at the panic stage.
When you sense the fear, panic, desperation welling up
in your heart and mind,
you must get still and say,
"I will not panic!
"I will not go into fear!"
I Will Be Still!
I hope you are encouraged by these words of wisdom by one of my greatest life teachers. It is so easy to get cuaght up in the economy crisis crap. You start to forget to count your blessings. As bad as things may be/seem, there is still so much to be thankful for: your life, health, family and love. These are things you cannot buy with moneyneither can they be affected by what's going on in the economy. With a lot of hope, prayer and hardworking with a dose of common sense, everything else is attainable with patience. so cheer up. At the very least, know that we are all in this together--starting over together.
WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.
Taking Action (April 16, 2009)
Knowing is not enough, we must Apply.....willing is not enough, we must Do!
Dicipline (April 7, 09)
One of my greatest life teachers in life is Iyanla Vanzant. She teaches that life and spirit is self correcting. Her rational is that if you continue to do that which you know not to be good for you, eventually it will cause you so much pain, you will stop. This is because you will become so miserable you will find the strength, courage, willpower to rehabilitate yourself. So if you are caught up in unhealthy relationships--It is tme for a change.
If you stay too long in a place where you do not belong, patterns of pain become etched in your mind. Find the courage and the strength to do the opposite of what causes you pain. The more you do it, the better you will be at it and the closer you will get to finding inner peace.
Growth (April 2, 09)
"When you grow up and you're different, all you want to do is find a way to be the same. And then as a more mature adult you realize the beauty of thinking on your own."—Sarah Jessica Parker
I got this quote from my Oprah daily quotes of the day. It had me thinking about the many times we work so hard to grow, but the old you and the new you are always at loggerheads unless you are very vigilant. Sometimes, your new growth is harder for the people who are closer to you, some may even fight it. At the end of the day, you must take a stand and fight for the real you--be it the old or new. As for me, I must always look for a better way in life. What is your choice?
Truth Telling (March 31, 09)
Respect yourself and others enough to tell them the truth about what you feel, when you feel it coz dialogue gives birth to miraculous changes.
Positive Thinking (March 30, 09)
Whether you believe it or not, your thoughts and words determine your reality. When you change your mind, you can change your life. So keep this in mind during this tough times. You have the power to make your life into what you will.
STICKS AND STONES (March 28, 09)
People can call you bad names and accuse you of many atrocities behind your back--It's all STICKS AND STONES unless you give it credence. This will in turn make it a self fulfilling prophecy for you. Besides, don't you realize it by now that it is impossible to please everyone so why live your life on another's timetable. As long as you surrender your will to the higher power and always respond to the call of the truth within you, your life will be authentic to you. Just shake it off.
EMPOWERMENT (March 27, 09)
It is time....
Time for a change
No more settling for less than I deserve
No more accepting mediocre results
No more thinking of myself as a failure or that I can't do anything because these are all lies
Lies of the enemy (doubt/devil) to trick me from reaching my full potential
I am worthy
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
I am a woman of Strength
I have the power and the ability to change my own destiny and to direct my own path
From now on there's no place in my life for wallowing in PMS (Poor Me Syndrome)
I TAKE BACK THE POWER.
