Power

Power.

Power corrupts.

Power motivates.

How do you handle power? I'm taking a look at myself and this notion of POWER.

I think I've always been a natural born leader even though I didn't always take the lead in some cases. I lead when necessary OR when my mother made me. (giggle)

I know that people see leadership in me. I can tell that people have faith in me to do whatever I may put my mind to. Why? Don't know. (lol) I know that I can influence. I know that I can even be quite manipulative if I wanted to be. So how do you keep from being a user? How do you keep from taking advantage of people?

For me, why would I want to do anyone harm? We all reap the harvest that we sow in one way or another. I'm not sowing seeds of negativity - purposely anyway.

God sets you on high. He places you into positions of power and leadership. I'm accountable and responsible for that position and I'm not even "there" yet. What is unnerving is folks who put you there. Today someone kept telling me how together I had everything. I'm thinking...huh?

I don't let projection change me for the good or bad. I am Rhonda. The power in my hands is the power of God and for HIS purpose to serve HIS people. I am no more than a servant. I am you. You are me. Power is a tool to manifest your dreams. Its a way to make things happen. When God gives you a voice, use it to promote love. I really adore every woman that's come to CWUW and I don't even know some of them yet. You can see the hope in their eyes. Its magical. I'm so blessed to provide the vehicle for them to see their dreams manifest. That's what Power should do. Its not for ourselves. Use it for good.

I'm ready to help women live better lives. I'm ready to enjoy life to the fullest.

I'm thankful to God for loving me. I'm thankful for him entrusting me with a huge task. I'm thankful for my old friends standing by me for all of these years. I'm thankful for the new friends who will walk the journey with me from now until its all over.

Power is what you make it. Use it wisely.


yeah....I'll edit later. :)

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 AM A SEXIST MALE.

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…

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.

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 …
