Climbing Mount Everest

The top can look pretty intimidating when you’re at the bottom. Just thinking about going up has your stomach in a knot, because you do not want to fall……again! Do you climb up or not, is the question you keep asking, because the last time you did, you regretted it. However, the only thing you’d regret is not going after what you want, because you allowed fear to convince you to come down! Dammit! Just when you thought “this is it”, turns out “it” was not enough to send you up! We all have been scared at some point or another in our lives. We’ve gone over the “what ifs” time and time again, and rather than try to succeed, we simply fail to start. But, one day, you’re going to muster up enough courage and strength to reach your peak, and when you do, you’ll look down and be glad that you did!

What’s your “Mount Everest”, and why are you so afraid to climb?

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Going overboard

Sometimes, it’s not the anchor that slows your boat down, but the people that’s on it. You’ll never reach your destination, because you’ve got too much weight on deck. As much as it pains you, you’ve got to start throwing people overboard. I know you want them to sail with you, but not everyone is meant to go on your voyage. Either lighten your load, or prepare to swim!

I’m doing just fine

I’m alive and well, doing amazingly swell

My life is so wonderful, and people are mad as HELL

I’m blessed beyond measure, and it’s all because of Him

If the shoe was on the other foot, I’d be happy for them

God has changed my life and brought to pass some of my wildest dreams

He’s allowed my cup to runneth over, with some pretty amazing things

As expected, not everyone is a fan of God’s work in my life

So they immediately start drama, but I’m not looking to fight

It’s a shame people don’t want to see me winning

But if they think my blessings are over, this is only the beginning

If you want to come up, pray to God, but don’t covet what’s mine

This is not a moment to brag, but to let you know I’m doing JUST fine!

Thank you to all my faithful and supportive NOTE takers! I’ve been away for a week, pretty much enjoying the fruits of my labor. If you haven’t already, please subscribe to my Youtube channel, with the same namesake, and tell a friend to tell a friend!

Until next time!

Fed Up!

We are tired!

We are exhausted!

We are people too, and we WILL be heard!

My life MATTERS! The color of my skin should NOT!

We need justice, and it’s going to take more than “just us” to do it!

There is strength in numbers, but there is POWER in actions!

EVERYBODY plays a part in this….don’t allow silence to stop you from doing yours!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Hungry for more

I’m exhausted! I’m juggling working full-time, running this blog, creating content for my YouTube channel, writing life-changing books and trying my damn best to stay sane all at once! Although I know I have a lot going on, I still feel like I have so much more to do. I guess you can say I’m a go-getter or overachiever, although both would be an understatement. However, despite my tiredness, I still continue on. I have too, because if I don’t, I’ll only wonder what “could’ve of happened”, had I decided to keep going.

When I wrote poetry, “my more” was to write books. When I started to write books, my more was to inspire and help others through my blog. When I started this blog, my more was to become a motivational speaker. When I started public speaking, I wanted to reach “more” people, so I created my YouTube channel. I don’t know what’s next for me, but whatever it is, I’m sure I’ll still be hungry for more!

You don’t have to have the tenacity like me, but if you know there’s something more that you can do, then why aren’t you doing it? Stop settling, because you feel good being “comfortable”. Get up and keep on moving!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
