Keeping Life Positive

Life is getting better and better. Finding ways to create positive vibes around me at all times and KEEPING life positive is becoming easier and easier. Our perception of situations, people, and life can be so off base at times that we make moves purely on emotion and not on reality and creating negativity when there doesn't need to be any. You may have eyes but may not be able to see....ya heard.

For me, its all about keeping things positive and on the RIGHT track even if emotionally, I feel differently. I need to keep the positive vibes flowing my way. Thank goodness also for maturity. Maturity lets you just step back and take a different view of every situation and make Positive decisions.

Where is all this coming from? There were a couple of things that occurred on my WONDERFUL night out that made me thankful for peace and a willingness for always being on the right side of the game or at least making the attempt to be anyway. I do fall short at times. Some of my friends know that I NOTICE EVERYTHING. I see little occurrences of negativity happening all around me. Its a gift (discernment) that was heighten by my ex. My ex used to grill it in my head to always know what is going on around me. Military stuff. So I notice people, looks, actions, etc. Any odd behaviors, I notice. I know when a situation or a when a person is negative. I'm not paranoid but I'll tell you if something jumped off, a sista would know. I watch people especially if they have been drinking and I watched a couple of things happen that could have gotten negative, easily. Instead, you notice and bounce it off of you and move on. Some things aren't that deep per se. Everything isn't a fight so you keep it moving.

Kept it moving. Positive friends helps in that. Last night was a fun night. I was great watching my "lil sis" turn 30 and being her authenic self; funny and lively and COOL. Its a good thing seeing a person so comfortable in their skin. Rashida is that and yes, Rashida, YOU ARE CUTE. ha! It was cool hanging with my new little crew and meeting some new folks last night. Positive people, doing positive things. Santos and the Saints....awesome group of folks. Fun chatting with them. Ericka...HILARIOUS, positive and too cute. And, Khufe, so thankful for the love, the hug and kiss, and the blessed words. You have always been so supportive of my words, thoughts and poems. I am thankful for our connection.

Last night was so full of positivity. One of my new friends was a sweet heart. In such a geninue spirit he says, "You are a very beautiful Black woman. Any Black man would be blessed to have you walk by his side. You are a Queen." You know when something is BS and when its out of a pure spirit. He expected nothing in return. It was in all honesty he chose those words and they blessed me and he was so :)

Keep life positive.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross

The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
