I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom. -Angus Grossart Pls
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
At 2am this morning I finally took a deep breath.
Before that I was so lost in thought, subconciously meditating on my purpose, that I may have developed a potential migraine I assume due to the fact that I have been holding my breath most of the time.. of course the fact that I am still awake at 2am should also be considered.

As I sorted through my elementary, high school and college achievements and memories. I discovered random memories that was stored in organized chaos; stuffed in binders and faded folders which have worn out and collected dust under my bed throughout my 13 years in my “new” home. My pack rack treasures stirred a well of mixed emotions…a nostalgic history of better days I lived before I stepped into the real world. Certificates of Good Conduct, Honor Roll, A+ on my High School Paper, professional uncertainty in college, incomplete applications to graduate school….wow. I have experienced a rollercoaster ride of self-reprimanded mistakes and lesson learned discoveries since those days.

My most prized possession is my poems especially one I’ve made in my naive days as a High School student.

One must always keep a firm leash on life
Prepare
Form a opportunity
Call your power
Learn to make a change
You will
Simply do what is good
You won’t lose

Who am I?
A whole new legend
Smart
Successful
Trusted
In the end
Life is really cool.

“Life is really cool” …..

I sit here laughing inside like a parent might simply laugh and slowly shake her head with affection and unpoken support; keeping her response to herself….a response that may hurt such a positive attitude.

Those words were so easier said then done 11 years ago compared to where I am now.

But now the teenager I once was has inspired the adult I am now. The adult who slipped and fell on the same puddle of mistakes year after year but got back up again and now finally sees the truth in my once “naive” vision. Words that now stir an energy inside of me and influenced a shift.

A shift, like how the planets align, a shift of the spirit of my past, the spirit of my present and the spirit of my future coming together in alignment. They no longer exist as separate entities. They are all one. My past trials and tribulations have shaped my present and my present trials and tribulations clearly shapes a promising future. A future that starts today as I will shape a firm leash on life because I AM preparing and forming an opportunity. I have been calling my power. I have been learning how to make a change and so I. Will. It is an intention.

This past year I have placed my steps in alignment with God to do only the good that He asks of me and as long as I stay in consistent alignment, I truly believe that I cannot lose.

I AM a whole new legend. One who IS smart, who IS and WILL be successful and who CAN be trusted. I intend to live up to those words. To my vision.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Mahatma Gandhi
I have one life to live.
One life to live in a world with so much boundaries.
So much rules on how to live it.

I have a vision of achievements I wish to accomplish that does not fit within a 9-5 profession. A vision that can be achieved with some freedom of measured time.

A vision that is greater than my desire to make a profit for materialistic pleasures. Pleasures we could live without if never invented.

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job & not be paid for it. -Oprah
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am fortunate to have parents who are supporting me as I undergo studies in a career of passion vs a career of social status quo.

With one life to live, I deserve to live a life on my terms.

So its official. I understand who I am now….

As of March 24th 2012: Going forward I will call myself a Professional Human Being; a profession that is not to foreign to the few who know of such a inspiring thought.

A professional who is lives and breathes his/her passion that is not bound in the measured time of a 9 to 5 profession. A professional who lives and breath his/her multifarious talents. A person who LIVES……every second of every day excites him/her because he/she makes a living out of what his/her passions (not just one passion! but ALL his/her passions)….That is who I am now.

A professional human being living life with GOD and philosophy leading my steps.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.
-Angus Grossart Pls

There is so much to do in ths world. TOO MUCH to do in this world. TOO MUCH too miss out on with one life to live and so I do have a great ambition to live life as a professional human being.

A profession greater than all professions. A profession of freedom to live as a poet, writer, musician, artist, teacher, motivator all in one with access to a world greater than my minute circle of life in this town of Massachusetts. A vision that I have the opportunity to accomplish.

And so its Official; In the end Life can be really “cool” after all.

We got a chance to speak with Les Brown during Inspiration 2020 in Los Angeles. Les Brown’s words are always solid in meaning,  to the point and profound.

During a very tough point in my life, one of Les Brown’s PBS specials gave me the motivation to start to turn my life around and started me on a course of personal development, that has served me well throughout my life. So I have a special place in my heart for Les.

I have met Les several times and always enjoy our short chats. I hope I can get him to do a larger interview someday.

Words of Wisdom in this text

“If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.”
– Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, 2011 Noble Peace Prize Winner

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.”
– Mark Twain

“If you want something you never had, then you have to do something you’ve never done”

“Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use.”
-Ruth Gordon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a dream, a vision that scares me and the deadline is fast approaching! And its an opportunity that I just can’t allow to pass by!

Some puzzles are in place to make this deadline but there is a huge piece that I do not have which will make this puzzle complete. One that I need another’s help completing. One that may not be found with the help of family. One that most likely will have to be from a stranger’s aid.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s one thing to contemplate an idea you’ve never achieved before; while your in your comfort zone (i.e. thinking while sitting on the couch is easy)

It’s another thing to put it into action which takes you outside of your comfort zone (i.e. meticulous, mentally exhausting, test of persistence research; for ways to put your idea into action; additionally dropping pride and fear of asking for help in order to put your idea to life)

It’s time for me to step out of my comfort zone but I find that it sure does HURT! Literally speaking! So much so that my spirit to succeed quickly shrinks away like a hand that has touched a HOT pot!

But just like a hand needs a glove to manage a hot pot so does my spirit needs word of empowerment to push forward and achieve. And one of the greatest words that pushes me to achieve are

“If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.”
-Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, 2011 Noble Peace Prize Winner

Oh man! This vision! This dream terrifies me! And I am excited to see that it is only a prerequisite towards an accomplish. So it gives me reason to believe that there is no reason for me to give in to the fear, but welcome it!! because my dreams are BIG. Dreams that are part of something bigger than myself. And with great trials come great tribulation!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.” – Mark Twain

You have read that my dream, my vision terrifies me. My mind is further at ease by reading Mark Twains’ words; that courage can be defined as the resistance of fear….the mastery of fear but not the absence of it! I repeat…….but not the absence of fear Amazing! I am now happy to be afraid! lol

It’s the taming of fear, like one would tame a lion, that can get you far! That can place you in a state of accomplishment!

A tamed lion is still a wild lion! It is a nature – a deeply instilled nature – that is an inescapable characteristic of a lion; which can be contained to a certain degree by the control of the tamer. (Now that’s terrifying! ~~~>)

So I too will tame my fear and it is only natural for it to want to reappear with full force just like a lion only knows how to attack with full force! But I now have the ability to contain it with enough control so that it influences action instead of influencing hesitation and inaction!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am off to do something I’ve never done before which will only strengthen my courage. Now I leave with excitement!

“Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use.”
-Ruth Gordon

I pray this empowers you to do the same!
~Many Blessings~

Awesome post about learning how to turn a negative into a positive! This blog got a good giggle out of me with the image that it has 🙂 This person has re-enforced the thought that having an Attitude of Gratitude is our best way to address any and all experiences that can lead to a complaint. Complaints do not solve problems or unpleasant experiences. They only take up time and mental space…pushing our thoughts away from solutions and pushing our thoughts away from things that we should appreciate constantly. Unpleasant moments is part of life’s “job description” and as long as we acknowledge that, we can stay in constant gratitude for the 3 things listed above and so much more. Learn how you can turn a negative moments into a positive moments with examples you’ll find when you click on the link above. Enjoy 🙂

Influence Versus Control

One thing that we truly have control over is the habit of complaining. I wish that I could tell you that I have mastered the art of avoiding complaining, but that would make me a liar (and lying is another habit that does not serve me). As I have said before, I am a recovering cynic, which means that I have occasional lapses in failing to appreciate the world around me.

I believe that a conversation about a problem that acknowledges a problem/challenge as the first step in addressing that problem is significantly different than complaining. Often when people complain, they tend to stay in the realm of problem admiration and they may even become resentful if you going in to “problem solving” mode

One odd thing about complaining is that people rarely complain about things they actually have control over. People will complain about the weather, the cost of…

“Decide to be Happy Today” – unknown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wow,

I won’t be able to sleep tonight without writing these words and setting it on stone here on wordpress.

Last night I slept with such mental distress. So much so that it took me 2-3 hrs for the music I was listening too, to kick in and help me doze off.

Today – Was a total 360!

Today was unlike any other day. It was truly unique of its own. And it was all thanks to the quote

“Decide to be Happy Today”

How can one maintain such an intention when another wants to turn on the tv when you want a space of silence?

How can one maintain such an intention when another comes home from work ready to complain?

How can one maintain such an intention when another comes home from work and a reminder of a past conflict wants to budge in and steal your happiness away?

How?

Indeed a handful of opportunities have occurred ready to deter me from such an empowering positive decision.

And with such deep intention, came deep focus and in turn happiness came to me where ever I put my mind to.

The exercise I did this morning.
The food I prepared and enjoyed.
The small tasks I completed.
The self development lessons I’ve learned.

Whatever that was left unchecked on my checklist is but a stone left unturned for another day.
And I am ok with that.

Because I decided to be happy today.

No panic was allowed, no stress was allowed, and to the best of my ability no hard words were allowed to exit my lips or enter my heart; and the heightened sensation from practicing such an attitude has me wanting more days like this; that was unlike any other day.

I want how I felt today to be felt everyday because I’ve discovered music that lightened my spirit and perspectives, life lessons, I could of only have heard with my mind and eyes so wide open to receive them. Such humbling wisdom that will lead me to even more happiness once I improve my ways.

I am so #grateful for the words

“Decide to be Happy Today”

~Today was a Good Day and so I will rest Happy~

“I acknowledge that sex is not only a physical act but a spiritual act as well. Therefore I will save my mind, body, and spirit for my future mate.” – From My Commitment to GOD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today is my one month anniversary! renewing my commitment to
~GOD
~to myself,
~to my family
~my friends
~and to my future mate.

My commitment to them all to stay pure with my renewed abstinence.

One month ago, I attended two classes that were held in my church* for my age group. Addressing what does “True Love Waits” mean……and how can one be able to protect their purity; your pure virginity or renewed abstinence.

I have renewed my abstinence and if you surveyed and asked me if my first time was worth it. I would of said

“if I could go back in time, I would have never lost my virginity the way I did.”

But today, I do not sit in regret…today I sit with acceptance for what I’ve done and evermore inspired to save myself; not for my next “boyfriend” but for the next man who will respect my abstinence; a man who is in search a woman he will wholeheartedly commit to a monogamously loving relationship; which will last a ~lifetime~.

It IS possible.

There is so much in this world today that makes it hard to believe it; hard to believe that a marriage can last; News of divorce is no longer few and far between but I believe wholeheartedly as long as I keep my steps aligned with GOD and HIS Timing it is possible to have a marriage that will last a ~lifetime~.

I understand that I must not sit and wait for him to come me but that I must step out into the world putting into action all the good GOD wants me to do and in turn my Adam (the man that God is working on for me) will cross paths with me when he as well is putting into action all the good GOD wants him to do.

I need to pause for a moment……………………….

Wow……..The Day will come.

It is coming each second that goes by!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is my monthly commitment. ~I am so grateful for my church!~

A commitment I speak with all of my heart each month and in which I take to action each day…

Believing that true love waits, I make
~~A commitment to GOD~~
myself, my family, my friends,
my future mate, to a lifetime of purity
including sexual abstinence from this
day until the day I enter a biblical
marriage relationship.

I acknowledge that my body is a
temple of the Holy Spirit, and I will
protect and guard this temple and will
present my body as a living sacrifice
to God. I acknowledge that sex is not
only a physical act but a spiritual act
as well. Therefore I will save my mind,
body, and spirit
for my future mate.
I was worth dying for; therefore
~I am worth waiting for~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ You are worth dying for ~
Jesus loved us much that he died for our sins.

~ You are worth waiting for ~
And such a great sacrifice deserves our gratitude and honor for what he has done for us.

~You are worth waiting for~

This prayer is for you as well ❤

~~Many blessings~~

Quest for Love

What a blessing, What JOY to find “the one”! To find Mr. Right or Mrs. Right! The man, the woman you will give your ALL too WITHOUT a second thought! In society today, it seems like it takes LUCK to find the one. According to movies, according to magazines, according to stories people share with us….it almost seems you just got to be LUCKY to find yourself with Mr. or Mrs. Right. Someone who is absolutely in LOVE with you and ONLY YOU!

We seek and so many of us find and rush into relationships with hopes to find that person! Influenced by family, friends, society who directly or indirectly tell us that we are of age to date or to marry; opinions that were based on their watch and on yours.

Many of us end up heartbroken and scarred from a relationship that started off so right and ended SO wrong. The heartache came because we didn’t know and were not taught that the best time to be in a relationship is on GOD’s Time and it is simply because “HIS timing is better than [ours]”…..Always.

Reading those words in this blog has re-enforced my commitment to stay pure for the man of my dreams. The man God knows so much better than I because HE is the one who is working on “the one” for me. And a true man of God would be loyal, loving, faithful, committed and I put all my faith on His Timing. I look so forward to that day.

The Making of a Woman, one of the best sermon’s by Pastor Johnson of Eastern Star Church. Eve was not God’s afterthought; neither were YOU! God didn’t make woman until Adam realized he needed one. Pastor Johnson’s next point was that if a man doesn’t know that he needs you, then its not the right time.
The making of woman is a process. God put Adam in a deep sleep while He was making Eve. God wants to make you whole and complete before he wakes up the Adam in your life.

God is not through with you yet! Do not become any less than who you were created to be. A man that accepts you as you are is the right man for you. I accept that God is working on me while He is also working on my Adam. His timing is better than mine, so I believe…

This is simply adorable! It is human nature to want the best for our children. Every single parent should have that natural desire to want to see their children excel in life accomplished by their own genius. Sudoku can help develop a child’s genius as it is a game of focus/concentration. A game that can help strengthen your child’s ability to quickly and efficiently perceive whatever they apply their focus on. I strongly believe that when we encourage our children to practice the art of mental health such as with Sudoku; it will influence our children’s ability to acquire wealth mentally, spiritually, physically, socially and of course financially. ~Many Blessings~

This is so awesome. I can totally relate. I am a lover of books and I live my life in a way to emulate certain characters I admire and certain experiences I desire to happen to me 🙂 I love this blog.

stagnum memoriae

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
