Who Do You Love? ...if you're not shining... then I ain't shining... how can I help?

A Double Edged Sword 

Daily we make decisions which can have life-changing consequences but often we don’t see them that way – especially if they affect others, and not ourselves. I guess that’s the human part of us that has a limited capacity to feel empathy or even care when we, ourselves have so much going on. Some things just aren’t real until they become ours.…

Dang it’s a Boomerang ..."What you put out, you get back," and I get that... YOU?

I’m listening to a preacher tell his story about how he tithed and sowed seeds for his ministry 38 years ago. He seems to be a very sincere person and has had lots of success drawing to him blessings and miracles in resources, abundance and money. He’s speaking of the Boaz anointing. I'm not sure about it because I don't have personal experience with him but, the heart of what I'm getting from the message is, "What you put out, you get back," and I know about that...…

LGBT African Americans: Homophobia in the Black Community

The Black community is filled with hypocrisy.  Recently, I had a raging debate about gay marriage with a friend of mine who is a Christian and holier than thou. He feels that gays should be put on an island somewhere away from…

Tomorrow will bring a better you/ a better me........



   "Oh how I love this song,

have you ever wondered or worried  what tomorrow will bring? Well doesn't the Bible itself say not to worry about tomorrow, doesn't God even take care of the fowl (birds), do they prepare food for themselves, does He not care for the humans more?

Yes its good to put it in to practice to be a better you always, but without fret…

Empowerment Tip- 12/8/2010

Dawj Sangster says...

Without a vision for your life’s purpose and direction, how will you know where you are going or what you need to do to get there? You have to see where you need to be, before devising any plan. It’s just like thinking about how you are going to strut in that…

This is definitely a reintroduction moment. When you stop learning you are slowly drifting away from the here and now. It is exciting to embark on new challenges. In order to exercise the brain you must continue to feed it with things you aren’t familiar with, as well as reading and other challenging task. I encourage you to Wake up your brain and introduce it again to your new…

It has been noted to treat others how you would like to be treated. Believe it or not, this is a powerful weapon. Utilizing this weapon is easier said than done. So what do we do? Continue to remember what a beautiful spirit you have. You can’t focus on the individual who you encounter and rely on his or her behavior to provoke your respond. What is meant by all this you say? Your…

Family is a beautiful thing, sometimes we don’t realize how beautiful. I know there are times when we think we rather do without, or some family members may not be your cup of tea. Nevertheless, the love that is given by aunt’s uncles, cousins, parents, grandparents, siblings, and extendended family is beyond measure. The sound of laughter, and stories being told, the smell of fresh cooked food,…

Have you ever wanted to try something new, but you second guess yourself or talk yourself out of it? This happens many times to several people. We can become complacent with where we are in life and stop leaping out on things we may want to try. Have you ever been a store and saw an item you wanted to purchase but, you decided you would get it next time? Unfortunately the next time you went to…

Words have power, we use them every day. We must be careful of what we say. The tongue can be a lethal weapon that aims to scorn, but let’s please use it to uplift someone. Once the words are released there is no taking them back. The intent behind what we say is important, not so much the choice words. It is true that the choice words can hurt, but the intent behind the words are more severe. When…

Last time we talked we discussed self-concept and how it works. In order to maintain your self-concept we must learn how to establish healthy boundaries. Establishing healthy boundaries is the way of letting those around us know that we have a sense of worth and significance and will not allow anyone to profile, create, or dictate who we are.…

Today I watched a show and the gentleman made a profound statement. He stated “no man can help a woman unless a woman loves herself first”. Interesting I thought. Many times when involved in a relationship we can become dependent on the chosen one. Relying on others to make you happy, fill a void, or maintain your self-esteem can lead a healthy relationship to the wolves. Ladies, know your worth,…

What is self-concept you ask? Self-concept is how you see yourself. Some may view themselves with the lights on, and others may view themselves with the lights off. Ultimately the way one perceives life will dictate their entire way of living. For example if you only see negative that is what will surround you. If you see the positive then that will surround…

Listen to the whispers, so you won't have to hear the screams. Often times men and women express their feelings by simply stating that they're tired, or they need a little help, or I simply need a break away. Consequently, other things keep our attention which makes it difficult to hear the whispers. In order to communicate…

It's a busy life we have, and sometimes we go through it so fast we don't realize how our interactions affect others. It cost nothing to smile, however we see so many frowns. Saying hello or good morning is barely used these days, and being rude and abrupt is considered to be the norm. So what will be the prescription for this…

Have you had a opportunity to become familiar with how dynamic you are? Grab a cup of tea or whatever your preference may be and get to know yourself again. You may be surprised of all the attributes you contribute to the world around you. You are unique and there is no one like you. Your style, your talk, and even your walk.…

Often we are consumed with taking care of everyone and everything we forget to take time for ourselves. It is so easy to go through the day without paying attention to ourselves. Consumed with taking care of the kids, the house, the dogs, and our spouse we omit ourselves from being cared for. So what do we do? You may not be the…
