Self-love…

I am on my way to becoming a published author..my book Back to love, coming soon….I used to play this song on rewind at my father’s house in my childhood….My book is a testimony of my Journey getting back to self-love and wiping away the the key experiences that wrote over my inner-sense 💜💜💜💣

The Soul In The Arena..

I am here Sunday afternoon, 4pm, June 28th 2020, watching Brenè Brown’s film on Netflix, “the call to courage.” I love what Brenè Brown has to say on the relationship between vulnerability and courage: most poignant, that there is strength in vulnerability. Her words are the right in-formation for me to be receiving at this time as I prepare to truly and completely go out on the “getting my book published”limb.

All during writing my book- and rewriting it, and re-editing it over these very many years, vulnerability has sat close besides me wondering, “what the fuck are you doing!? Are you really serious about getting this book published!?” 🤣

Last year, all the “nothing ever happens before the time” ducks were all in line when Sèan Patrick Parker, Founder & CEO of That Guy’s House (TGH) publishing company, made his appearance in my life, at opportune time. TGH is a publication company that exist in its purpose-drivenness, to bring transformational, difference- making, life stories into existence. ” The exact same purpose-driven passion as mine, on all the different levels. God/The universe/Love/Divine Intelligence/The Great Unseen Power That Be, most definitely had an hand in him and I coming together and teaming up. The key part I played, before, and toward then, was not giving up on this dream- in spite of all my fears, anxieties and insecurities. Instead working hard and dedicatedly at crafting & honing this passion & purpose of mine, whilst staying awake & alert to opportune time.

And now that dream, my book (and the others I have in the pipeline waiting), is set on becoming a reality. And being as close as it is to reality, vulnerability and high anxiety is running riot inside of me, afraid of backlash; afraid of the “happy-not critic” and his & hers inferiority-complexities . But watching Brenè Brown’s call to courage, especially when she quoted from Theodore Roosevelt’s 1910 address speech I share below, I also know that this moment has not happened by chance and ready or not, I am as ready as I will ever be to respond to The Call To Courage: to The Call To Dare Greatly…and you know what? I am so incredibly proud of myself and so thankful for this Journey that has given my life everlasting meaning and purpose; that has given me an internally- sourced Peace & Joy; that has enriched my life with milk and honey, the likes of which, in my childhood past, I could only day-dreamed about…I am guessing that any kind of dreaming was enough…and has become The Dream of dreams that keeps on giving…

So, I will allow the haters their hate-it’s theirs to keep. I will allow the critics their snigger. I will allow the cynic their cynicism. Tiny-hearted is as tiny- hearted does.

The only kind of people I should be giving My Time of day to when it comes to my creative expressions and occupying space in my preciously divine mind, are those on the road less traveled; are those in the arena daring to do their thing: Daring To Do The Thing Their Soul Has Called them to. Everybody has A Thing; many are Called, few listens, let alone Dares Greatly…

Man In The Arena

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Our Day In The Sun..

A quick shout out…

I think the Black Lives Matters Too, should be a slogan/statement left for this movement alone. I’ve been noticing others starting to use it on others issues too…as a black person I find that annoying. Let us just have that one thing/bandwagon for ourselves, please. As a people we need to come more together and “community up,” which we are now starting to do in greater numbers, especially in regards to supporting black businesses and seriously thinking about where we spend our cash. All other peoples have their businesses, community and loyalties….so I say again, leave us the BLM TOO for us solely to use…Give us that moment: It’s been a VERY LONG TIME COMING..

Peace & Love,

Quotes from Back2Love..

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. Frederick Douglas…

Yes it is easier, but it is not impossible to turn our lives around and drive it in a direction more of our choosing, as my story bares testimony to. I am here, and my Life Purpose is to share the Good News that, with self/love, all things are indeed possible!

Peace & Love,

Happy Father’s Day..

For Real…It makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE, in their lives, and in their adult lives in this world. Childhood is The Preparation; we need to get this people. Children aren’t born racist, sexist, homophobic, rapist…

Children do as we do, not so much what we say…The Doing cements; The Talk without The Act, confuses & mis-creates..

As well as striving to be the model, the example, that our children need, especially if we truly want them to grow into mostly happy, wholesome, contributing & conscientious members of community and society, we also need to keep an eye on the people we choose to be in our lives, and hang around: those people are teaching them right and wrong also..

Nuff said; not rocket science; simple mathematics..

Peace & Love,

Quotes from Back2Love..

During this time I decided to lock my hair; one day I just had the thought that no matter high up the ladder I got, I would never want to sacrifice or compromise my cultural and racial identity. Whatever group I was going to end up being a part of in the future, I still wanted to be proud and feel very much involved in my African and Caribbean heritage. Basically, I wasn’t going to ‘sell out’ in order to fit in anywhere I may later find myself..

Peace & Love,
