~ RIP Earl ~

My feelings are everywhere right now…
I'm sad, angry, 
I smile when I think of our happier times,
I break down and cry to know you're no longer here.
They say everything happens for a reason,
but this makes no sense...
there is no reason - not in this case.
I'm sorry you were alone, and I'm sorry your felt the grips of despair…
I'm mostly sorry I haven't seen you in years.
I will always love you, and will remember our better days...
you were one of the kindest, sweetest people I ever knew,
and that's how I'll keep your memory alive.

RIP Earl Badu

Gratitude and Attitude

Gratitude and attitude,
changes everything.
It takes more energy
to be angry and unpleasant…
and when you think about it,
what do you gain?
You can choose your outcome,
you can choose peace.

Own It

Just do it…
as Nike famously said.
There is no time for fears,
doubt should only exist,
to give you a clearer picture
of what to do next.
Today is your day…
own it.

Today is determined by my attitude…
Rather than looking at all I'm not,
I will appreciate all that I am.
I will be grateful for another day,
to breathe air in my lungs…
I will be grateful for the opportunity
to tell those I love, how much I love them…
I will be grateful for waking up.
My attitude is everything,
so I will choose to make it it's best.

There are moments 
tears seem like the only solution
to whatever it is your are feeling.
Nothing is wrong with a tear…
A tear is full of emotion,
it knows better than you at times…
A tear sometimes needs to happen
in order for you to be honest with yourself.
Embrace this moment,
and look deep at what's going on.
You have the ability to understand yourself…
you have the ability to find joy.

Trajectory of the Day

Your day can change instantly,
and that change can occur in your mind.
Yesterday, I woke up 
and didn't have the most inspiring thoughts.
But then I talked to a friend
who encouraged me and 
while in conversation, a woman walked by
and gave me a compliment.
The effect of my friends words
and a strangers compliment
changed the trajectory of the day….
today, I will do the same for someone else.

There are some days
you want to throw in the towel….
It's only a moment that will pass.
It's okay not to feel your best all the time,
and quite normal.
It's unrealistic to expect to be on a constant high -
part of the journey when character forms
is when you're going though challenging times.

Set an intention.
It will bring purpose and focus in your life.
Staying committed to your intention
will make you disciplined 
and will help you find your center in the middle of chaos.
Life has many challenges, twists and turns…
being centered helps with all the distractions
and your intention will keep you on track.

Love is a beautiful emotion…
it can lift your spirits,
change the course of life,
it can bring you joy like nothing else.
Love is special and sacred…
Love can bless all relationships in your life.
If you feel love,
share your love today with words.
Tell those you love, that you love them,
and why you love them…
Hearing words of love
can change someone's day.

You Will

Stay committed to what you want…
Have a plan stay focused and flexible.
Your are more likely to achieve this vision
if you know what it is…
And stay flexible because you might not get there
how you expected,
but be sure you will get there.

Only You

Forgive yourself,
for whatever blocks your progress.
Life is a journey with ups and downs
and sometimes the downs
can cause deep scars.
This is the flow of life…
we all go through it
but only you can determine your growth…
only you can let go and move on.

Up to Me

I'm not feeling healthy...
I can workout.
I'd like to make more money...
I can work harder.
I want to experience more of life...
I can be more open.
All opportunities are there,
it's up to me to make them happen.

Life is precious, a gift, an opportunity
to express love to its fullest potential.
Eleven years ago today,
love was not expressed to any potential.
Today, as we remember 
the lives lost in such a senseless act...
show love to a stranger,
pray for the lives touched by this anniversary,
and continue to pray for a better tomorrow.

Monday, September 10, 2012


Today is a gift.
there will never be another today.
Let go of doubt…
Laugh instead of cry…
Live as if it's your last day…
Love because it's the only way.

"You can't judge a book by it's cover"
We've heard this saying for years
yet how easy is it to still judge?
Subconsciously, we sometimes judge
based on past experiences, 
stereotypes,  language, body language…
many other variables too.
Try to tap into the subconscious,
catch the thought as it arises
and do not let it to formalize.
We don't know the stories of strangers,
but we can be sure they do have them.

Move On

It's easy to let life run you over.
Disappointment happens,
sometimes to the point of exhaustion.
At times we see the worst behavior in people…
Remember, life doesn't have to be that way.
What goes on with others should not be judged,
but can be used as a monitor as to check yourself.
And disappointment…it's bound to happen.
There are lessons in the experience,
learn, grow, be tolerant, forgive and move on.

Can thoughts be controlled?
When thoughts arise
and the voice is negative,
catch the thought and don't let it develop.
This is only happening in the mind…
one can control the manifestation of thought.
Therefore, be purposeful in thought,
be compassionate, understanding…
be wise.

Excuse are easy to make.
I don't have enough time,
I don't have enough money,
I don't have enough skill…
These simple words
have heavy consequences 
if you believe them.
Be kind to yourself,
give your self opportunities to improve…
things don't happen over night
so be patient.
The key is to not give up.
