Giving Thanks

I give thanks for good and the spirit that embodies giving. Without this effort within the human condition it means nothing. Give plenty, be in the spirit of serving others. I give Thanks on this day and I am grateful.

GIVE THANKS FOR IT ALL IN SPITE OF IT ALL...and speak aloud that you are grateful each and every day. So many of us focus on the things we want, the places we want to go. Give thanks for all that you have NOW.

Give thanks!!!!

Love you all! Eat and be grateful.

Give me 5 minutes and maybe we can change the world!

How do you know the person who says "HELLO" to you as you walk up Madison Avenue is not a resourceful person to your destiny? I have asked myself this question time and time again because, I, for one love to meet and talk to new people. Sometimes this can have adverse affects but for the most part I have met some fascinating, intriguing individuals.

The main lesson that I have learned over the years of just being open to conversation from strangers, is that you never know the similarities and the unseen force, that is constantly working to bring that particular person in your space at that exact time/moment. I believe that many of our successes, crises, and events that occur in our life, happen on purpose and it is all written. It is our reaction, and our ability to maximize opportunity and potential, that will prove weather a meeting or occurrence was in vain or if it will blossom into something great.

Everything can not be easy in this world. For those really extraordinary things in life I know you have to put in the work before the rewards come in. You can be on top of the world one minute and plummet in seconds due to lack of preparation and terrible work ethic.

Sometimes opening your mouth, stepping out on a limb and sharing your thoughts with a stranger can lead to some pretty amazing steps towards your life's work. As they say "A closed mouth never gets fed"...

Share......GIVE.....and you shall receive.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

I am thankful for the strangers I have met.

Feet planted in the ground..Thinking on a higher plane.

Are we really afraid of what we don't know and understand? Is it fair to say that we get a little funny feeling in our stomach when we walk into brand new situations, with no prior knowledge of the environment, or people or circumstance that make that up. I notice many people, forgo "trying" to accomplish many things because of this fear.

It is safe to say that the human condition is built on being comfortable, once a comfort level is reached in relationships, career, and everyday life, we try to hold on to that unconsciously. We don't think of ruffling the feathers of what makes us feel secure, confident, and in a state of being able to predict our next step.

The downfall of this is we basically end up watching days, months and years fly by before our eyes and we feel time has been wasted. We then beat up on ourselves for not being more proactive and doing the things that really make us shine. Taking a risk and finding the one other person in this world that completes you and makes you feel like new love every single day. We don't allow ourselves to meet new people because we have known the ones in our lives for years. We don't go to the supermarket to buy healthy food and cook at home we rather speed off to the drive way and get something fast and quick, that does not require our energy to prepare.

I started to notice a long time ago that the way we "upkeep" our self and our things are a huge reflection of who we are feeling on the inside. If we organize and constantly clean out everything around us and evaluate our steps and moves, pushing ourselves to attain the short and long term goals we have set, we live on purpose and we give greater meaning to our existence.

Be well! XOXOXO!

Love me or leave me alone! Respect me for my opinion and what moves me to do the actions that I choose.

I am a woman! I am love! I am a mother and I am fly! Sometimes I find it hard to find the right words to put into the universe to touch the right people and to get my message across....I hold myself accountable and responsible for the thoughts that I place upon your mind as you read the words.

I am a grateful receiver of the love that you all give me each day. Some call me spoiled "Dee you get whatever you want always" looks easy from the outside...I understand. My struggle is yours. We all are trying to be more than we were yesterday!

I am beautiful and yes I know it. I don't need to walk down the street and hear a million guys try to tell me that for me to know it. I am 100% in love with myself and damn it feels good. I do not need a man to validate that even though I am fortunate enough to have ....

I love my life! It was created for me and given to me to utilize in the best way possible. To shine my light and be a sense of inspiration for all...I know this.. and I will commit to doing it as much as I can.

I love my family...and the blood that runs through my veins..I am descendants of royalty this I you know where you derived from? How far your blood runs and where it started??? if not....look into it. Carry out your purpose .your mission,

Happy 5th Birthday to MY Greatest Gift...

So today marks the birthday of my little Girl, who is turning 5, and I am filled with emotions. I wanted to share a poem I wrote about her the first week she came a dedication to her on her 5th birthday.

MooMoo -- What is that?

That is the nickname I chose to call one of my treasures - one of the most profound, meaningful and remarkable beings in existence - My daughter.

She lights up my interior, one look onto her eyes and you will be beaming too...

She as cute as a button and smart as a whip, from her stinky diapers to the dribble on her bottom lip.

She is made from something that cannot be defined or explained,

God placed her in my care so her purpose wont go in vain...

Oh he knows her family wouldn't allow such things...

He knew he had to send only the best of the bunch,

DeAsia Divyne Bradley was built for greatness - and that train came right on time.

Thank you for my Treasure.

LOVE YOU MOOMOO! Happy Birthday!

Mary Mary Quite does your garden grow?

Who are you? Know really. One day I see you say this, the next I see you do something else. One day you are surrounding yourself with wolves, the next with sheep. Will the REAL you please stand up.

This question comes up many times for me with various people in my world. Yes, people are constantly evolving, as they should, but let us all hope and pray that the evolution is positive and for the good. I am seeing more and more people evolve backwards. They surround themselves with people who are not a reflection of their greatness, talent and potential,which leads them to participating in activities that are not a reflection of who they truly are.

Usually this would not be a concern of yours, after all, your friend is a grown adult who can make their own decisions...right?

But...what happens when you genuinely care and you want to see better for that person?

I have watched this same behavior happen often more recently in my life. It is hard to try to understand why or what causes people to say one thing and do the opposite but you can control those type of people in your world. You have to be responsible for your life, and that includes who you allow to permeate your circle and play a part in your life.

All I can do is say live by example. Keep your word, and live in accordance to what makes you happy and your life. If other people are not on your same page any more...then be courageous enough to give those relationships time and space to become what they are. Stay focused and on YOUR track.

Take two and call me in the morning ......

Why is it so hard to stay consistent with our health? Why can't we opt not to over indulge, over eat, snack and binge and stay on our vitamin game. When we are fine and things are great we don't have a care in the world...not until sickness or illness strikes.

We then want to reevaluate everything we put into our mouths, what activities we choose to partake in, how often we should be going to the gym, what vitamins we need more of and the list goes on and on. We need to think about this all the time.

With all the swine flu and regular flu and stomach virus and various illnesses going on, it is causing many people's lives to come to a halt and deal with the reality that they may need to pay more attention to their health, and start investing in LIVING rather than falling victim to illness and disease.

Be committed to being healthy, eating right and giving your body some necessary movement which translates to exercise. Keep your word to your self, it will pay off in the long run.

If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want. ~Elbert Hubbard
