Dr. King – Selma – Victor Benoit – Social Change – Happy Birthday

gty_martin_luther_king_jr_ll_130115_wmain

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be 86 years old today, had he not been assassinated in April 4,1968. Dr. Kings life has been examined and studied extensively by academics, scholars, politicians and social activists around the world. The world speaks highly of Dr. King and his accomplishments. Today we celebrate his birth and his work on a nationally recognized holiday.

As I write this blog, my mother calls me and informs me that my uncle Victor Benoit has just been appointed as minister of Social Affairs and Labor in Haiti’s political cabinet. I am so very proud of him. He has worked hard for the Haitian people all of his life and this appointment is well deserved. This news immediately causes me to draw parallels.

There is a certain type of boldness and audacity that would allow someone to believe that the work that they do can affect change. Everyone does not have this type of courage; however when one does have this type of courage they can change the world.

I just watched Selma recently and what I appreciate most about the film is the human perspective that was given. From the time I was a child up until my adult years Dr. King always had this iconic persona that almost made him seem infallible. The director of the film Ava DuVernay showed Dr. King as a human being, someone who had faults and fears and doubts. Take a moment and think about what it took to challenge the status quo in the sixties. His life and the lives of others who were associated with him in any way were always in danger, but they stayed the course. The issue at hand at that time and even now is our FREEDOM. The ability to be who we are without any apologies.

Socially we are at a tipping point in the world. Uprisings worldwide have challenged political norms and changed lives. The United States is currently in the midst of this kind of change. Let us channel the spirit of Dr. King and others who had the courage to fight and bring about the necessary shift in our reality.

Congratulations Uncle Victor!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King and Thank You!

Where are they? – NOW!!!

We are in the midst of an awakening. None of the events that you hear of in the media are independent of each other. More of us are aware and have the ability to see clearly. This is why we have to ask questions and challenge the status quo. Our lives are important, we are more than pawns of the oligarchy. In the spirit of asking questions and expecting answers, I ask, WHERE ARE THEY? NOW!!

My thoughts and prayers are with these families. I do believe all things work for our good and as I mentioned before this is clearly part of something bigger than all of us.

My request to all of you reading this blog is to focus your energy on all that is good in this world. Focus your energy on each and every one of those spirits that are missing and pray that their souls are at peace.

The shift is happening now. Stay Awake. Find Yourself. Love Yourself. NOW!

LIVE YOUR LIFE NOW! – Tis The Season

Image

As I write this I can feel my self breathing and I am grateful. Each breath is a reminder that I am capable of changing my circumstance in this moment. 

During this time of year many of us find ourselves assessing it. We may think about what has gone right, what has gone wrong and what we can do better. Self reflection opens us up to the possibilities of what can be. 

The power of transformation and the ability to be happy rests inside of all of us. We are connected to the universe in a way that will spark change. We have to believe. 

The creator has not given us life in error. We have purpose. We must be bold enough to act on it. Many of us spend too much time focused on the “bad” things. Sometimes we allow negative thoughts to spark an emotion that can leave us stagnant. We have power over these thought. We have dominion. 

I challenge you to love, to project abundance and change your circumstance and the world.

This is my intention going into the new year. I am eliminating fear and doubt and replacing those thoughts with love, good health, prosperity and abundance. 

We have been blessed with these lives to live to the fullest. We should be happy. We should be carefree. We should love. 

Live your life NOW!!

Stay Focused, Positive and Productive

Whats Really Going On!? What is Right With Us!?

Tuesday was such a strange day. I wake up and check my facebook and all I see are pictures of this beautiful infant who is six months old.

JonylahWatkins6montholdBabyTragicallyShotandKilledInChicagoVideoInsideJonylah Watkins 6 months Old

This child is yet another victim of this rising murder rate in Chicago. I make a concerted effort to avoid this news because of how it makes me feel. I feel like we are being attacked by negativity everyday and not watching the news is not enough anymore. We have to shield ourselves from a constant barrage of bad news.  Fast Forward >>>>>>>>>>

So…. Im at work Tuesday and its just like any other day. Im helping customers and kind of going through the motions, just another day. Of course my co-workers are discussing this horrible tragedy that I have been trying to avoid and I try my best not to comment on it. I never do.

The day continues…faxing…answering the phones…being corporate….work. Occasionally I may hear someone speaking on their cell, sometimes they talk LOUD!! Today this “young lady” was in the vestibule talking REALLY LOUD and saying every curse word you could think of to whomever she was having a conversation with.

Security approaches her and asks her to step outside if she is going to speak so loudly…She calls him a name and then says F U as she goes outside. Then she comes back in as if she is about to be serviced. She was escorted out.

I’ve had conversations with many people concerning this energy that people seem to be emanating. For some reason it seems as though negativity is fighting for its life and   people seem to gravitate towards it so easily. Why is it like this?

The reason I blog is to speak my mind and represent a voice that is working to turn the tides and tip the scales when it comes to how powerful we truly are. It is up to us to make a choice and not buy into this low energy.

Speak words of power, be kind to people, embrace the spirit of love.

When you pay to much attention to media in general you will be bombarded with BS. Its time to be selective and deliberate. Speak Life Into This World and see the world Change. We are blessed. Thats right.

What are your thoughts on this current state we are working ourselves out of? How do you stay encouraged? I would love to hear your thoughts. 🙂

Stay FOCUSEDPOSITIVE and PRODUCTIVE

Welcome 2013

Image

Just woke up with so much on my mind. I feel so very fortunate for my experiences thus far. I look forward to greater and even more prosperous experiences in the future. It has been a challenge and everything that happens does not seem like it is in my favor…but it is. The truest blessing is to be alive with the ability to try and try again. DO NOT GIVE UP!!! I dont care what anybody says….DO NOT GIVE UP!!! We are so powerful and recently the starts have aligned for us. The shift has happened for us. Our minds are changing. We recognize our power. We are no longer in darkness.

As I type this I am becoming new. I am embracing my oneness with the universe. I thank my ancestors for their guidance and protection. I move into 2013 bold and deliberate. I expect good things, high vibrations, prosperity and enlightenment. I expect my circle of friends and family to understand who we are and act accordingly. We are the children of the creator with access to the storehouse. We are AMAZING!!! We deserve the best and we are grateful for it. We welcome 2013 as the year of realized dreams. God is Awesome and so are YOU!!!!
