Gift of GAB

Sometimes I am truly in awe by the people that come into my life and how it happens. It is a magical process. A process that assures me that GOD is always in the midst and his vision is crystal clear. I have to trust in that, never second guessing that the encounters that I experience no matter how big or small are truly for me. I love it! I breathe it. I give life to the newness.

Some folks literally have the gift of lifting me off my feet and inspiring the holy crap out of me! That is nothing but the power of GOD and my good energy attracting it to me. I recently was inspired by this young cat who does poetry. Usually when you are a PYT it is hard to meet a man and it just be that. A man will try to kick his game, lick his lips, and sell you a dream about why you and him need to be the next Michelle and Barack. (right)....

Well it just wasn't that vibe. Dude was really inspiring. He is a poet and the words and the messages that he could formulate in his brain and transfer to paper was amazing. I, of course was truly touched by this in more ways than one because I am a writer FIRST. I love the way words transcend beyond the moment. It captivates me...it lifts me and for one moment I can see your mind not the flesh in front of me. I can feel your spirit and I sniff out your soul.

Words can touch us in ways that are indescribable. I was once told that I would be "unstoppable" if I always practiced what I wrote. Why?, because when I write I am of another dimension. I am truly one with my passion. I am love abundant. I am at peace. I am me....perfect in my imperfections.

One thing I do know is I am flawed. We all are, but how beautiful it is to be in acknowledgment of that and be conscious in your progress to correct it.

GOD bless that man that I speak of, who so eloquently writes his poetry. Planting his seeds of wisdom and fruit for us to savor. He does not know how much I enjoyed his piece of writing and the funny thing is....who is to say I will express how much it meant to my being when I read it. This post was my "pay it forward." What a beauty it is to be on the receiving end of creative energy. Arts...humanity. I have been blessed!

Have your OWN back. "Get your life".

Being one. Being whole. Being complete, just with who you are is an important part of growth, development and the ability to be able to embrace the future you want and desire. Sometimes we think too much about other people and what they want. We put ourselves and what makes us happy second and in the end we wonder why we are still miserable, upset and not happy.

My Nana used to say "You came in this world alone....and you will eventually go out alone." You are with you all the time, every second of the day, yet sometimes we treat ourselves like a second class citizen. Some would argue that it is a selfish state of mind to think of yourself and your needs before someone else, but I beg to differ. At the end of it all, if you cannot make you happy and please you, then who will?

Learn to be honest with yourself and accept the realities that are in your life. Today you may not have all that you want but learn to be grateful for what you do have and know that all you need is what you have in front of you today.

We put so much focus and worry on our tomorrow's when they are not yet in existence. We have to learn to be present in our moments and give all we have to the realities that exist. If you want a better job or position, do the BEST damn job you can do with the one you currently have and make an effort to get another one each day. If you want more from your spouse or mate, learn to validate them and love them fully and give them your all today so that you are leading by example of how you would like your love to feel. If you want to make more money then do everything possible right now to secure the future you want.

Every decision, every thought, every action we make right NOW is determining the future we will have. Choose your thoughts, company,and actions wisely and constantly ask yourself...Is it aligned with my purpose and the future I would like? If the answer is ever "No"....then don't do it...no matter WHO does not like it. You come first. When you are happy, when you can love and when you are at one...that is the only time you can effectively give of yourself to someone else.

Love ...Live...Purposeful.

2012...We've been waiting for you....

The beginning...the start.....the top.....of each year is always exciting. It gives people a chance to profess from their mouth all the goals and aspirations they will look to achieve, or make right with what they fell short of the year before. Regardless of how rightfully silly it truly is because nothing magical will occur at 12 am of each first of the year....it is a positive action being taken.

The main thing I think all can benefit from is the art of being proactive. Taking the initiative to DO. It sounds so simple but we all struggle to put the walking to our talking at times. This is the year of action. The question should be "what are you actually doing that is aligned with god's purpose for your life"? During times we live in, it is crucial that everyone get centered and focused. Have a purpose driven life. Behind every action that you take, think critically about it first and then make a move. Don't just move, don't just say that hurtful thought. Take time to consider the person you are speaking with and how it may be received. Bathe yourself in love for yourself and naturally it will come out and cleanse the ones around you. Force yourself to remove all the jealous and envious thoughts that cross your mind. It is not pure and will only keep you from focusing on what is really important.

Stop wasting time around those who are not of your wave length. Just as signals get switched on devices from bad reception, so will ours when we expose ourselves to a certain "reception" of folks. You have to be responsible for the people you allow in your life and in your inner circle. You truly will be the average of the 5 closest people to you. So take that seriously and guard the information, thoughts and energy you allow in that space. If things start to seem off and out of control it is only you to look to as to why. You are responsible for the energy you give out and what you take in.

Interesting I was watching this program this morning and it was discussing the way our heart has a direct connection to our brain. In other words whatever we are feeling in our heart will translate to our brains and will then push out thoughts, actions and emotions into our world and the people around us. Therefore it is in our best interest to LOVE as much as we can because it will be manifested in our DOINGS. If you are harboring anger, resentment, hate, jealousy, bitterness or negativity in your heart it will show up in all that you DO. Unfortunately you will come up short and you will be losing. The key is to keep your heart pure, clean, positive, happy, grateful , thankful, humble and honest....HONEST. This is very important for your actions to follow suit.

Our thoughts and emotions will determine how we ACT in this world and what we will do. We limit all we can do when we limit our thinking and keep it in the negative space, therefore limiting how far we can go. This year make the conscious decision and effort to go FAR and to DO more. Move me with your actions not your words... :)

Live a purpose driven life.....HELLO 2012!
