I am a single a mother and raising a boy to be a man, I am studying Human Service and on my journey, I have stopped by to be in service of others. Welcome and please we can journey together.

LET’S BE CLEAR

When something or someone doesn’t work out the way we planned or hoped them to be, or even just not sure of the next step, doesn’t mean defeat, most likely that thing or that person deterred or re-routed the path you were on, and along the way that experience gave you exactly what you needed,  and now that your back you see exactly what you have learned, how you have changed or not, what you can or cannot, and who you are or are not. So no you weren’t defeated but more knowledgeable, closer to being sure of yourself that thing or whomever, knowing now the difference between defeat vs. deterred. I’ve learned that it can be really simple or we make it extremely difficult and it still doesn’t change the simplicity of the thing is truly what it is, that person is truly what they are, but the experience is always a profound asset to the collection of your experiences that constructs your life. So how can that be a failure or defeat, we gain all along believing we were failing or defeated, it’s simply not true.

HABIT

Habit can be a detriment to growth when it gets in the way of doing and discovering new things in life that have been put in place for only you to discover, and to direct you to the next phase or chapter in life. When you can realize and are aware of those rare opportunities that only happen every so often, and habit prevents you from reaching for them and entering new paths and journeys, your habit becomes a hindrance. It isn’t so simple to just change a habit, it is a mindset that has to be adjusted, and like many other obstacles, it requires acknowledgment, acceptance, and determination to be willing to welcome what has been made for you as you journey through life.

Its A Choice

What makes most of want to say hello when were walking by a stranger, what makes us hold the door for someone before we go ahead of them, what makes us want to be the best person we can be, what makes us sad when we see others hurt,  whats makes us let the guy with one container of milk ahead of in line, and what makes us go without so someone else can have. I ask myself these questions because I know and see the act of human decency every day, but still, we have deep hate in this world. How can we be good and kind to someone but hateful and disrespectful to others, are you making the choice not to be that person who is kind and loving to fellow man, or are you making a choice to be other than who you truly are, and not showing human kindness and decency. It is a choice and we all have the ability to be entirely good to our fellow man.

Personal And Public

I want to share with you guys something that made me think, and it is actually calling me to act, Does Your Public Self Line Up With Your Personal Self, (Devon Franklin). Now you know what this means, it means do you honor yourself internally and personally the way you perform or conduct your self publicly, and I have to admit I can do a lot better. I believe when these two acts line up together you are at peace, and there is nothing to hide or nothing to fabricate, you are just who you say you are. I do believe you have to hit a level of maturity and to figure out if you want the world to know you are to know what you want them to know, there is a difference and I guess you have to begin with knowing yourself and who you are most of all what can you offer of yourself in service to others. I know I have some work to do but I learn something today, and when you learn you teach Maya Angelou,

WE CAN,WE WILL

There is hope for humanity and I believe we are moving in the direction of being the best we can be. I see that people are really making an effort to do better and also help others do better, and we need a lot more of that, A simple act of kindness and a hand to help your fellow man. There is nothing love cannot heal, no barrier it cannot break, it is the most powerful emotion we possess and I will do my part to give as much of it away I can as humanly possible, I believe in us and I pray that we as a connected energy continue to evolve in the most positive and transcending way.

WHO IS IT THAT YOU SAY YOU ARE?

You are who you say you are, You are who you think you are, and who is that you say you are?

Angela Davis.

These words have become a mantra, It is simply a call to show up to and in your life, It can’t be misunderstood or misinterpreted, its a conversation we already have with ourselves but for many reasons, it’s dismissed. This is one of the most important conversation we need to have, not only  the question but what is your answer, and  what are you doing with it, are we answering that question and then not doing anything , or are we answering and not happy with the response in turn pretending we haven’t a clue, “tell me whats happening” because nothing will ever change until we have the answer and then do something to reflect it. We allow other people to tell us who we are or should be, what we want or will have,  what we do and have done, most importantly what you will do. Now if you think the questions will ever change and you won’t be called upon your mistaken, now what can change is how many times you ask yourself and boldly answer with authority and purpose. You are who you say you are, You are who you think you are, Who is it that you say you are?
