is that you have now given the universe
a road map.

Silence Your Inner Hater

A lot of times we are our own worst enemy.  We doubt ourselves, and we play ourselves short.  But life is full of possibilities. And while I do agree that some dreams are just that, a dream…what about those that are well within reach?  Are you reaching for them?  If not, don’t blame your current circumstance or even the people around you.  Because life, is what you make of it, you get out of it what you put into it.

Therefore, learn to silence the hater within you; that unsolicited noise that clouds your judgement, creates fear, and encourages disbelief.  Stop second guessing yourself, trust your gut and go with your intuition (that’s why we have it!).

We encounter enough haters in this world, don’t add yourself to the list!

Morning Musings 2.19.18

I’m not sure what is happening in our society right now, but it is exhausting that everything has become a point of racial tension, be it a reality show competition, sports game, movie debut, or even the words of the Commander and Chief.  It’s dishardening to know that as we celebrate the 92nd Black History Month in this country, that our progress is often marginalized by ignorance.

How antiquated is it that we allow skin color to divide us?  Let’s elevate and evolve – there is far more that unites us!

One race = Human.

Monthly Mantra – October 2017

My best me will learn to slow down and enjoy the ride.

pink-lotus-with-blue-sky-bonita-hensleyThe everyday hustle and bustle of life can keep you humping from the second you wake up, to the moment you climb back into bed at the end of the day.

Unfortunately, for most of us, the bulk of that time is often spent completing the mundane tasks that govern our lives.

How often do we really make the most of the 37,843,200 minutes we get?

Let’s Start today.
