Good Morning Most Wonderful, Awesome, Fantabulous Educators and Friends! I just wanted to remind myself and everybody else, that our point of power is always in the present moment. That means just stop, think, and breathe and take notice of what’s going through your mind. Then whatever it is, we should realize that it’s creating our future. I always ask myself, “Do I want this thought creating my future?” If it’s a good thought, I say yes and let that thought make me feel good.(Basking in the sun!) If the answer is no, I try to figure what kind of thought it is, then I ask “why am I having this thought”. Sometimes it’s a thought that can pass without acknowledging it. On the other hand, it may be a thought that I need to turn around.
This may seem harsh, but we do have to remember that if we are upset or sad, it’s our own doing and not anyone else’s. Problems always stem from within and not without. That’s why we need to spend a great deal of time in the classroom of our mind! Every outer experience is an inner opportunity to learn and grow! I said all of this just to say that the life we have right now is a residual of our past inner thoughts. It’s easy to turn things around just by changing your thoughts! Forget about what happened in the past and enjoy your present moments and allow these joyful thoughts to create your wonderful future!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful Educators and Friends! This week is coming swiftly to a close. It’s Wednesday already. I’m not sure but it seems like I have been really emotional the past few days. I was in the uber office yesterday and this lady just kept talking and talking. That really got on my nerves. I mean so much that I started getting angry. She wasn’t even talking to me, nor did she prevent the person I walked in with from being waited on. But there I was, feeling angry for no apparent reason. I had to sit quiet, close my eyes, stop, think, and breathe. I had to go deep within to the classroom of my mind to realize why I was going against everything I believe. I then searched for the best feeling thought that I could find. “All is well and I am safe!” As I sat there I realized that there are a great deal of changes happening in my life and it feels like I’m all over the place. I know the path I want but at the same time, I know the safe path as well. Then I remembered that Abraham always says that we should try to flow downstream and not try to force a path. The universe will make the way easy and all we have to do is move in the direction of what feels good.
Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I am so excited about the way my life is moving! I deserve the best and I accept the best now! I am planting the right seeds in my mind and they are starting to grow! I love myself! I approve of myself! I am totally grateful to all that I have! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Good Morning Most Awesome, Wonderful, and Amazing Educators and Friends! Today is an Amazing day only if you choose to make it an Amazing Day! Isn’t so wonderful that we get to choose! We get to choose whether we are going to be happy or be miserable. I make this choice everyday. Sometimes I make a happy choice in the beginning of the day and right in the middle of that day my mind slips into another mode and I’m walking around like a zombie. I am so grateful to have coworkers who will stop me and say, “Demby fix your face! You gotta stay positive!” This allows me to Stop, Think, and Breathe then make the choice to be happy again! I always think of the song from Bobby McFerrin, “DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!”
Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I choose to be happy! I love myself! Everything is Awesome! I look forward to what each new hour brings! My income is constantly increasing! My Joy, Peace, and Love are constantly increasing! My relationships are wonderful! I am loving and lovable! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL!

Hello Everybody! I stayed up almost all night! My mind simply would not let me go to sleep! Every time I tried something would pop up! LOL! Needless to say I’m just waking up from going to bed at 8 o’clock this morning. I heard Les Brown mention that, “Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss. Most people fail in life because they aim to low and hit.” This send chills through my body. I thought about all the times when I was young I always said to myself; “If I could just get a good job”. “I can’t wait to be a teacher. That’s a good job” Now my dream came true, so now what? I do love teaching but still feel as if there has to be more. So I started writing and publishing my children’s book which I love because I’m teaching just in form of a story. I want to be like Dr. Seuss. Almost every school-aged child has read one or more of his books! Which is how I want Demby’s Playful Parables to be. I love getting stories from students and or their parents that say, “I am doing better in school since I learned to Stop, Think and Breathe and Make the Right Choice” I love to hear children singing it all that time and using it on each other as well as their parents and / or teachers. LOL!! My Students use it on me all the time! Only recently I started to think that maybe I could make a full time career out of selling my stories. I’m sitting here reading the success story of an online entrepreneur and he talked about making ten million dollars a year but being bored with that and feeling lost because that was his goal in life. He didn’t really know what to do. So like Louise Hay says, “The point of power is always in the present moment” He set his goal to $100 million. I’m sure he’ll reach that too and have to set a new goal! The point is when we are young everybody tells us to set goals, but they never tell us that it is our mind that puts on the limits. Now granted we should be sober in our thinking. I don’t we can grow wings and fly like a bird just by thinking about it but we determine how our life will be and how far our passion will take us.
As I was reading the story from the online entrepreneur, I was thinking to myself. “Naw I don’t need 10 million that’s too much. All I need is a million that would be enough for me.” There I was reading about someone went far beyond his goal in life and I’m limiting my own self. I’m aiming too low and I’ll hit. Then what? There already enough naysayers around, I most certainly don’t need to be one. My prayer today is Lord take away these self limiting beliefs and create in me a clean heart that is open to the Totality of Possibility (also came from Louise Hay. . . . I love that lady)
Dream Big! there’s no sense in dreaming small. I see myself living in abundance doing what I love to do. Bob Proctor says, ” I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities through multiple sources on a continuous basis!” The Bible says
John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. That means everything to me. Because my fear of riches stems from being like Ebenezer Scrooge, rich and lonely. That’s not wealth at all. Abundant Life is having wealth in money and in life! I’m setting my goals high!
Blame is the worst enemy of all humankind. I believe it is truly our enemy! Anytime you find some reason, other than yourself, for something failing or not going well, you are headed down the wrong road! Christians always talk about how powerful God is but they will be the first ones to say, “The school have gone down because “They” took prayer out of the schools” Well I want to know who took it out of their homes? The prayers of the righteous availeth much, so it doesn’t matter where you pray; God can still move in that situation. There’s no way our society can be going down, if everybody is praying as much as they say they are. Moses was only one person and after he talked to God, he changed the course of history for a whole nation. He could have simply blamed “Them” for the way things were; but he chose to follow God’s plan and make a difference. This is why I feel that there is should a great falling away from the church. (Just my opinion) You can’t tell me about this Powerful, Almighty God that can’t do anything. . . . Hmmm does that even make sense. Now the church is blaming Obama and the government, but they should be looking at themselves. Just like when I’m in my classroom. If a lesson doesn’t go right or the students become sorely off-task, I can only look within and take responsibility. I try not spread blame to others or myself, only responsibility. It’s either my mental state or my lack of planning that set this behavior in motion. Let’s stop the blaming and start taking responsibility! Likewise that black community has blamed whites for years for their failures. We can only allow the responsibility to fall on us. There is no way that we can live if we expect and / or feel entitled to handouts. Expecting someone to pay you back for all the pain you experience, is not going to create a positive life. As you can see through present news reposts and social media post. The “Black” community is falling apart at an alarming rate. Everybody keeps saying “Black lives Matter” to try to get other races to see the importance. We as blacks have to make Black lives matter to us first. The only way to do that is to forget about the past and live in the present moment. Do not allow what happened to someone years ago dictate the way you live today. Have you ever notice that when you expect some to be prejudice to you, they are? Every time you say “They” won’t let us do this or that, you give whoever “they” are more power. We have spent years and years and years of blame which has created this generation we have now! Let’s take responsibility and speak the world that we want and stop talking about the world we don’t. The next time you hear a believer talking about how bad the world is, just stop them in their tracks and say “God is Big and he can move and make changes from anywhere. So let’s start praying and speaking over this generation right now!” In the Bible all it took was one that was righteous to save a whole city so why can we overpower “they”? If God be for us, who can be against us! The Church will not move any further than it has moved nor will the Black Community move any further as long we are blaming without rather than looking within! (I’m really sorry if words were spelled wrong and grammatical errors were made. This is just a weary rant after hearing somebody say the President Obama was bringing the country down because the government has asked schools to have transgender bathrooms. So I’m apologizing now for any of that stuff but not for what I’m saying). How can the church be so powerful but yet so weak? Does anybody understand what I’m talking about. If the church would stand together every elected official a believer. In turn every law enacted would be from the standpoint of a believer. Where did “they” come from anyway? Probably the church! What do we stand for in the church? What do we allow and call it outreach? I think the last Gallup Poll said church goers make up at least 50% of the U.S. population, so why doesn’t the church have the power to change these laws and create the type of Country they want? We spend so much time talking about what’s wrong with the world and our country because “them” instead using our power of life that is in our tongue! From here on out speak and spread LOVE!!!!
BOOK PREVIEW PARTIES SOON TO COME!!!!!
Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful Educators and Friends!!!! In almost any religion, you are required to have faith. What exactly is having faith? Is it believing that there is some power greater than you, that works on your behalf? Is it believing that there someone or something bigger than you that leads, guides and corrects you? I say, whatever faith is is; your thoughts are needed to have it. Faith = Imagination and without it, it’s impossible to please God says the bible.Whoever my mind says that God is, that’s who he’ll be. I was just thinking and reading through various religious books. Some writers say, “He’s a vengeful, jealous God” while others say, “God is Love. He’s our Father or Mother” yet others have even called him “Friend”. It’s all in how you imagine him to be. #Faith I choose to let go of my Sunday school version of God. Now don’t get me wrong those stories were great for learning how powerful God is, but they don’t create a great life for the people who still view God that way. Just think in the story of Noah, it’s says that God was sorry that he made man and decided to destroy him. Just imagine the adult that is walking around believing that if they make one mistake, God is coming to destroy them? It’s really people out there like that. I know, because I was one of them. And then I heard Louise Hay say that, “even your view of God should be for you and not against you”. Whoa! Hold the phone! I could actually choose who God is to me? Just imagine all the years I prayed to a vengeful, sarcastic person who would destroy me or kill people in my life just to teach me a lesson. This did not increase my faith one bit. I think this might be why there is a great falling away from church amongst other things?
I now have totally different view of God! We are his creations, whom he loves very much! He has allowed us to be creators just like him. Whatever we decide to believe and speak, he sets the universe in motion to bring it to pass. Just have FAITH!
We are made in the image of God. So our view of God is really a view of ourself. Just have FAITH!
