Protect your Peace!

The world gives us something NEW to cry, fuss, and fight about everyday. To protect your peace of mind, pick and choose what you give your energy to. If not, you’ll be in outrage daily.

Your Peace of Mind Matters!

The Dream Lives On!

No matter who happens in your life Never Forget the Dream!

In elementary school, this was only a figment of my imagination. I was Salutatorian of my graduating class and got a chance to give a speech in front of my classmates, our parents , love ones, and the faculty. Towards the end of the speech, I went off script and told everyone that I wanted […]

Self-Sabotage is a Choice!

1. Take a moment and think about all the amazing things happening in your life right now. The grits & eggs you ate this morning, your car, job, family, kids, spouse, money, house, freedom, and etc… I mean everything!

2. Ask yourself this question: What could cause me to lose it all? (Think about your actions and the actions of those around you.)

Now here’s some short and sweet advice:
Stay countries away from everything that came to mind during STEP 2, by any means necessary!

You are Grown!

Being an ADULT is about taking charge, being able to operate independent from your parents and love ones, and taking care of your responsibilities.

When you cross the 21 year old mark, you should no longer look for others to solve your problems. You should no longer blame others for the conditions of your life. And last but not least, you should no longer expect anyone to do anything for you.

YOU ARE GROWN!! The years of you being catered to and provided for are over!!!!

Being an adult is about taking full control of your life and handling your business. If you are not willing to do that, you are still a child!

I wrote in my ‪#‎journal‬ yesterday before I went to sleep and asked for guidance in a particular area in my life. It came fast!

The instruction I was seeking came in the form of a dream. When I woke up, it wasn’t clear to me what the dream meant, but after meditation I now realize the underlying message of the situation in my dream.

Thank you! I needed that.

Never Forget..

Never forget the times when you prayed to have the type of life you have now.
Gratitude is what builds and maintains a solid foundation; don’t lose it!

Don’t complain about the glass ceiling, hit it! And keep hitting it. One day you’ll break through.

Act Now!

You have a mission to complete.

Have you ever woke up late and looked at the alarm clock, panicking, realizing that you have something very important to do and don’t have much time? Visualize the last time this happened in your life and allow yourself to feel the sense of urgency you had at that moment. When you have a mission […]

When You Quit …

It's Much Bigger Than You.

When you quit, you affect much more people than yourself. There are people looking up to you for hope and inspiration. When you quit, you quit on your supporters, admirers, and fans. Become inspiration for why others should continue to dream. Not proof for why they shouldn’t. There’s a person out there that believe in you […]

Be Selfish!

Be selfish for a little while, so you can be generous for a long time.

In other words, you can’t feed people with an empty refrigerator. Accumulate then distribute. In that order.

Sources say that we think over 70,000 thoughts a day and over 80% of them are non-positive thoughts. There’s no wonder why the world is attracted to negativity. There’s no wonder why people enjoy complaining and gossiping. There’s no wonder why it’s so hard to stay in a positive state of mind. The odds are stacked against you, but with proper techniques you can maintain your ideal state of mind, no matter the circumstances.

Spend time managing and strengthening your mindset. You Gotta’ protect what you believe in at all cost.

You must Climb through Confusion to get Clarity.

Memory Lane

When I won 2nd Place in the DC City-wide Art Contest

I begged my Mom for months to find the picture on the bottom left and she finally found it. I immediately got goosebumps. Here’s the story: When I was in the second grade my art teacher(well known gospel singer Vanessa Williams) entered a painting that I did called “Unity” into the DC City-Wide art contest. […]

Joy Within

If you rely on others for validation, the pursuit of validation will control & restrict you.

In other words.. ..

If you rely on people to make you feel good about what you are doing, the pursuit of obtaining those feelings will control you.

Joy and feelings of accomplishment has to come from within.

Divorce yourself from public opinion and do your thing!
