A New Year

It is that time once again.  The ending of one year the beginning of another. 

A new year!  A call to action! The opportunities to be better tomorrow and each succeeding day than you are today.  

A chance to break free of the mundane, to refuse to paint in black and white and between the lines but instead wherever your imagination takes you.  To paint your future in the bold strokes and daring colors it was meant to be painted in

A new year is the chance to embrace the truth. The truth that nothing is impossible as long as your faith remains strong and you dare to dream. 

A new year,

A blank canvass,

A new beginning,

Seize it, 

Make it yours

Because after all the future is but what you make it

Can You Dig It

I say the future is ours…
…if you can count!
Now, look what we have
here before us.
We’ve got the Muslims…
…sitting next to
the Jews.
We’ve got the Christians …
…right by the Atheists

The Whites up against the Blacks and the heterosexuals back to back with the homosexuals.

Nobody is wasting nobody.

That…
…is a miracle.
And miracles
is the way things ought to be.
You’re standing right now
with nine delegates from every race, nationality religion and sexual orientation
That’s over 7 and a half billion humans.
Now, put that in perspective and you’ll understand there ain’t but a handful of racist, misogynist, intolerant hate filled humans left in this whole world

Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?

Now here’s the sum total.
Unity and tolerance could run this world.
We could make it a paradise. Because we got the Earth

Can you dig it?

The problem in the past
has been those committed to hate and division turning us against one another.
We have been unable
to see the truth,
because we’ve been fighting
for 10 square feet of ground,
our turf, our little piece of turf.
That’s crap, brothers and sisters
The turf is ours by right
because it’s our turn.
All we have to do
is see the good in each other
We slowly root out the hate from each corner of the globe
Secure our territory,
secure our turf
because it’s all our turf and this Earth would be a paradise.

Can you dig it.

Happy Monday

Good Morning and Happy Monday
Let us sing with praise yet another opportunity to see a new week and continue our spiritual journey. As the new week begins remember that there are a multitude of new and exciting opportunities waiting for us. Many of them hidden from us in the dark waiting for us to find them. It is with an unstoppable faith in the Lord that we will find that we are blessed with the vision to shine a light on these opportunities and bring them to fruition. For truly the Lord is great and he has blessed us with many remarkable opportunities for us to claim in his holy name.

The Journey

I traveled the long road through the tunnel of despair, depression and self-doubts, and emerged a better person. The journey while difficult was worth it because  you must look despair squarely in the eye to find yourself and at the of my journey I had rediscovered myself.  I realized that receiving the accolades of others, being recognized for my achievements may have made me happy but was not the key to my happiness.  I realized that while I was looking for validation from society the only validation I needed is from with-in. Gone was the fear of failure because I may fail again and its place was the resolve to move forward and seize the possibilities the future holds. I no longer put on a face for the world to believe I was happy but show my real face because I am happy. For in traveling the road back I found the keys to being truly happy, belief  in myself and what I can accomplish. The journey may have been arduous but it helped me to find the strength to discover myself and to believe in my potential.

You are what you think you are

Life is a self fulfilling prophecy.
You are what you think you are.
You’ll accomplish what you believe you can. Focus only on the negatives in your life you’ll
never tap into all the positives and unleash your full potential.
Think you can’t do something and it becomes a
given that you won’t.
When you believe you are worth it and that you can accomplish anything you’re life will take a turn for the better. After all your life is what you make it
