We Are Greatness

image

We can be great by being more grateful; feeling what we have in our hands, never making a fist because we fear crushing hope. We get caught up in someone’s; eyes, never leaving their sight until we can see what they see. We can question less and answer more. We can believe in more by doubting less. We can stop relating trustworthiness to gullibility, and realize being gullible is being around people you don’t trust. We can inherit a world that is wealthier in souls than dollars, Love than hate, and joy than pain. We can inherit a world where the sun is always rising because we are set!!!!

Love and Life

image

I close my eyes every night and thank God for the life I have. I am wealthy in Love and poor in pain. I spend most of my day smiling. I don’t have a lot, but all I can see is that I have so much. My mind and my heart work together, and I don’t ever sit when I can stand. I don’t hate when I can Love, and, I don’t fear when I can live. We wake up every day and feel we have an idea of who we are, but during the day we find out who we truly are, with all the challenges in our paths. Work to maintain who you say you are in the morning if it’s positive. If it’s negative, work to prove yourself wrong. Don’t fold under the pressure. Embrace it and smile because a day not enjoyed is a day lost!!!!

Inspiration is a Talent

Inspiration is a talent.

The ability to spark hope in souls that need to burn is a gift. We see people take their last breath and somehow we continue to find the air to exhale and move forward. We witness people healing from deadly illnesses, showing  purpose and God’s will. We encourage our infants to walk, our families to express their thoughts, and friends to remain loyal to all they speak. A laugh from a woman going through child birth allows us to believe hope is possible through the greatest of pains. The moment we look into the eyes of a person that stops our heart from beating, it restarts, inspiring us to be stronger and wiser. When we sit back and truly reflect, we realize what inspires us the most is sharing life with people whom give us life until we are lifeless. As we grow we realize we need the sun, water, and soil to truly blossom. That’s inspiration!!!! ~AmazinglyBrash~

Racial Profiling

Today, cops jumped out on me and said, “Where is that knife you had?” “My phone is in my pocket; I don’t have a knife,” was my response. “Where did you throw the knife?” they continued. I said, “I don’t even carry weapons.” The cops jumped back in their car and drove off. I was calm but ready to die….because I did nothing wrong!!!!

I Woke Up Like This

Another early start, waking up to add some words to my life story. Highlighting every joyful moment in the past so I can duplicate the emotion over and over again. Deleting the mistakes of yesterday, writing in the corrections today, so tomorrow is perfected. I will be unafraid to Love yet fear hate. I’ll dream a reality and live life to death. I will use today to piece together my happiness and go to sleep knowing I ended the day with four explanation marks!!!!

Challenge Yourself

image

Most see a snowy day; I see an opportunity to test my will to be willing. I don’t live from day to day; I live today to see tomorrow. Every breath isn’t certain until you have already breathed, but my faith is certainty over doubt. I believe from my heart, and my mind makes it happen. Anything that isn’t heart felt will lose its feeling; optimism is my lifestyle. I walk steps that have been traced by those before me. I leave steps that lead to paradise behind me. I’m willing to teach a preacher’s words and act on a preacher’s teachings. I am several years of moments, but a lifetime of memories. So, never forget I am always willing to extend my will because I will challenge the unwilling to extend theirs. Tomorrow is promised if you keep all your promises today. They see snow but I see them as flakes!!!! ~AmazinglyBrash~ #DreamAwake

Watched “Selma”

image

Selma started out with a bang! It jolted emotions within my soul that left me absent of my body. The movie had so much spirit; from the way several were able to be one, to their ability to risk death for change. Selma illustrated how it takes many to make anyone great; it takes trust and able-bodies to organize anything worth moving. As the tears dropped from my Loved ones, a warmth invaded my body with purpose. I was inspired by strength to choose peace over violence. I was angered by the hate yet soothed by the Love. Selma reinforced my faith in Love and my ability to challenge people to adapt it!!!! ~AmazinglyBrash~
