Manifest Destiny

Generally the term is used in relation to some imperial take over deemed inevitable but I think there are times when it applies to life in general. The journey is set and we determine how hard the journey will be.

I'm trying very hard to take the simplest path to the end but I'm learning that the simplest its always the best and isn't the way God will take you.

My professional life is one track. I put energy into. I work at it DAILY. I believe in the vision. I believe in what God wants from this. I trust my professional destiny.

Personally, well, I'm confused. When it comes to what I should be doing personally, I'm out of it. Its hard for me to separate personal situations from professional. Every person I meet nowadays, I think in terms of what they do and how this meeting can benefit CWUW. Rarely do I think about how it could benefit me. YIKES!! At least, I recognized it so now I need to fix it. I think I've gone through this over the past year. I started out doing well with going out and listening to music and chattin' with friends but CWUW stuff, the kid stuff, new job, etc has taken over.

What is my destiny for my personal life? You know its bad when your ex starts to ask questions. UGH...hated that. I have to admit that my introverted personality can be the culprit at times. Being around people constantly is tiresome. But I'm excited for 2009 and all that it brings for me so there's hope. With the Kids graduation, that brings a lot. The apron strings get cut a little bit. I can relax a little with CWUW. The IRS has the application (they took the fee with the quickness) and I've recruited a team of folks to start planning some events for 2009. There's time for me to concentrate on me and what I want for my personal life.

I'll be 41. I look aight. I'm pretty happy with things.

I need to invest in Rhon in the 09.

Manifest my Destiny.

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 …
