Ready, set, GO!!
I want to take this time to ask what you would like to read in my blogs. When I write, I tend to touch on things that people close to me or myself are experiencing or have experienced I would love to hear your life experiences and topics that you would like to discuss. Can't wait to hear from you!
Ready, set, GO!!
I have been so blessed and happy about how things are going with my book. I am so moved and grateful for those of you who have purchased my book and thank you for your encouraging words. I speak postive success into existence and God has shown me more than I could ever imagine.
If you haven't gotten your copy of Real Woman Real Talk...what are you waiting for?
Time is so precious, one minute you are laughing and talking to someone and the next minute they are gone. You should never take the time you have with someone for granted, you never know when the Lord will call them home. Take time to sit and talk to a loved one, hug them, kiss them and definitely tell them you love them. Let go of the petty things you were upset about and rebuild your relationship.
Do it now, because tomorrow might be too late.
Do you ever just sit, and wonder? Wonder why things happen the way they do, wonder why things don't always go the way that YOU wanted it to, wonder if where you are in life is where you are meant to be?
I try and look at all aspects of life in a positive perspective. Negative thoughts, bring negative results and I just can't have that around me.
Try to be positive and NOT complain for 21 days and tell me how your life has changed
I stand for women, I stand for free. I fight for the right of women unity.
I love my Sisters and they love me. Let's all take a stand for love, like it use to be.
We are not one another's enemy, we are each others history.
Together we stand with dignity,
I'll stand for you, will you stand for me? United with love and the right to be free
Sometimes in life you may hit some setbacks, but don’t believe the lies that are telling
"It’s never going to change, you’re never going to see a breakthrough"
Instead, tell yourself everyday “It’s only temporary, this is not going to last
You may have been turned down a dozen times, but the good
news is that it’s all subject to change. God is still on the throne. The next
time you apply could be the time it all works out. The next time you resist and
don’t give into that addiction could be the time you break totally free. The
next person you meet could be the person of your dreams. Keep believing, it’s
You may be
facing situations right now that have been the same year after year. It looks
like it’s never going to change. God is saying today, “I can still turn it
around. I can still bring that dream to pass. I can
still do things you have never imagined."
You do know, with God ALL things are possible?
So I came across this blog and thought it was quite interesting.

A Mother's White Privilege
Elizabeth Broadbent 08/21/14 06:03 PM ET
As the ongoing events in Ferguson, Missouri show us, America's racial tensions didn't disappear when George Wallace backed down from the schoolhouse door. Dr. King didn't wave a magic wand, and we never got together to feel all right. White America remembers this at ugly flashpoints: the Rodney King beatings, the OJ Simpson trial, the Jena Six, Trayvon Martin's death. White America recoils in horror not at the crimes -- though the crimes are certainly horrible. It's not the teenagers gunned down, the police abuse, the corrupt trials. It's this: at these sudden, raw moments, in these riots and demonstrations and travesties of justice, White America is forced to gaze upon the emotional roil of oppression, the anger and fear and deep grief endemic to the black American experience. Black America holds up a mirror for us.
And white America is terrified to look.
To admit white privilege is to admit a stake, however small, in ongoing injustice. It's to see a world different than your previous perception. Acknowledging that your own group enjoys social and economic benefits of systemic racism is frightening and uncomfortable. It leads to hard questions of conscience many of us aren't prepared to face. There is substantial anger: at oneself, at the systems of oppression, and mostly at the bearer of bad news, a convenient target of displacement. But think on this.
I have three sons, two years between each. They are various shades of blond, various shades of pinkish-white, and will probably end up dressing in polo shirts and button downs most of the time. Their eyes are blue and green. Basically, I'm raising the physical embodiment of The Man, times three. The White is strong in these ones.
Clerks do not follow my sons around the store, presuming they might steal something.
Their normal kid stuff -- tantrums, running, shouting - these are chalked up to being children, not to being non-white.
People do not assume that, with three children, I am scheming to cheat the welfare system.
When I wrap them on my back, no one thinks I'm going native, or that I must be from somewhere else.
When my sons are teenagers, I will not worry about them leaving the house. I will worry -- that they'll crash the car, or impregnate a girl, or engage in the same stupidness endemic to teenagers everywhere.
I will not worry that the police will shoot them.
If their car breaks down, I will not worry that people they ask for help will call the police,who will shoot them.
I will not worry that people will mistake a toy pistol for a real one and gun them down in the local Wal-Mart.
In fact, if my sons so desire, they will be able to carry firearms openly. Perhaps in Chipotle or Target.
They will walk together, all three, through our suburban neighborhood. People will think,Look at those kids out for a walk Look at those punks casing the joint.
People will assume they are intelligent. No one will say they are "well-spoken" when they break out SAT words. Women will not cross the street when they see them. Nor will they clutch their purses tighter.
My sons will never be mistaken for stealing their own cars, or entering their own houses.
No one will stop and frisk my boys because they look suspicious.
My boys can grow their hair long, and no one will assume it's a political statement.
My boys will carry a burden of privilege with them always. They will be golden boys, inoculated by a lack of melanin and all its social trapping against the problems faced by black America.
For a mother, white privilege means your heart doesn't hit your throat when your kids walk out the door. It means you don't worry that the cops will shoot your sons.
It carries another burden instead. White privilege means that if you don't school your sons about it, if you don't insist on its reality and call out oppression, your sons may become something terrifying.
Your sons may become the shooters."

What are your thoughts?
Have you watched CNN lately and heard about the Ebola incident? The people in Atlanta were released because they were no longer effected. No one can say that this is not a biological weapon.
Just some background on Ebola: This virus melts ones internal organs and makes the effected bleed from every opening.
How believable is it that this virus just showed up one day
and that now there is a cure?? .. Really!?! Why is it that this virus is so deadly
and people are only concerned about it now?
Communicating effectively seems like one of the hardest things to do. The person you are speaking with is half listening because they are trying to figure out a response to what you are saying without letting you finish your sentence. I think that if time was taken to listen to someone instead of just hearing the words come out their mouh,it would be less arguing and better understanding.
Communication rules the nation
Women have always been held to a higher standard of life. Starting with Lady Liberty herself, the First Lady, the Ms.Universe's, Ms.America's and all other women who have been held to high positions. We are looked on as being the glory to mankind. That is why I challenge every woman to stand today for something good and support yourself and one female friend to a higher standard. Let her know you are there for her and she can trust and depend on you without you hurting each other.
Will You Take The Challenge?
