Child! Just Stop 🛑

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Today I was thinking about the many hours, days, months, and years that I’ve wasted begging my family, friends, and co-workers to buy my books, review my books, or subscribe to my YouTube channel. Then they don’t do it, and I end up being hurt and angry. Even though as soon as I hear one of my family members or friends starting a business, even if I don’t need it, I go out a purchase or subscribe. So I felt like everybody else should do the same. A voice came to me and said, “ Kyri just stop!” Stop calling on your friends and family to be your customers. Try developing a relationship with your customers which is separate from the relationship with your friends, family, and co-workers.

All I do now, is just pray that my books, music, and YouTube channel make it into the hands of people the need them and can use them. Doing this released a lot of pressure from me and my close relationships. Hopefully this helps somebody else. Just do what you do and it will make it’s way to the right people!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I choose to feel good about myself. I rest in the joy of knowing things will work out just as the should. My creations will find their way into the hands of those who need them. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Relax in Being You!

I’m just sitting here thinking about how my life has been. I’ve accomplished a lot of things. I’m proud of myself. However the thing I haven’t accomplished is being comfortable with who I am. This has been a true struggle. Realizing who I am and being comfortable being who I am in public and in private. As I sit and think, I start to realize that some of my actions are not my own. They stem from the way I think others want me to behave, the way I saw others do things when I was younger, the way my family believes things should be done. Once I relax in who I truly am and clear out all the other stuff, I can enjoy being me. I can love being me. “ An old white woman, trapped in a black man body…. that is gay but not that gay” LOL 😂 I love who I am! If I make you feel uncomfortable…… just relax in being you!

Other people can’t change who you are because you are you!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Wonderful Day. I truly love who I am. I’m in love with me. I am who I am, and who I am, I love. My life is fabulously blessed. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Every Little Step I Take. . .

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I remember a song we used to sing at church when I was little. It said, “ If I take just one step, then God will do the rest.” As a child, I truly believed that God actually comes to get involved in our daily lives. As I grew up and had many prayers unanswered, I started learning the laws of God and the universe. So it is a little true that God will do the rest. It’s the laws that God set in place in the universe that does the rest. The law of attraction says if you take a step there mentally, it will come to you. Take step toward joy and believe that you have joy; and it comes to you. If you’ve been there in your mind, you’re a step closer. Although it seems easy, it is not. Sometimes you go 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. It’s easy to settle into the fantasy of God that we learned when we were children; thinking that we can sit back and watch God do everything. It’s so freeing to realize that we can take action mentally, which will bring us steps closer. Every little step we take, gets us closer to our dreams!

Daily Affirmations: today is a magnificent day. I am taking steps closer to my dreams. I am growing and learning every day. I love myself. I love my life. Great things are flowing my way. I am one with God and God is everything. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Child! It’s Just A Test! Go on and Pass It!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I was sitting here thinking about all the things we go through in life. And the voice in my head said, “ Child! It’s just a test. Go on and pass it.” We learn from the process of taking the test, and when we face the next test; we can use the same process. The problem comes ( well at least for me) when we pass one test and say “whew! I won’t have to worry about that anymore!” Then another test like that test comes and we freak out and for the process we used to pass the first test. So starting today, I will be grateful for my test. Every test helps me sharpen the process of test taking so the next time something doesn’t go right in my life I can say…. Child! It’s just a test. Go on and pass it!

Daily Affirmations: today is a magnificent day. I choose to move forward in joy! I love my life. My life is fabulous. I love and approve of myself. Every experience in life is an opportunity to learn and grow. I am healthy, wealthy, whole , and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Mr. Demby’s Teaching Philosophy

Freedom is given when you’re responsible enough to handle it. Freedom should not be given with age. The saddest classrooms are those 5th grade classes that the teachers treat like 5th graders but they still behave like 3rd graders. Teachers have to learn to only give freedom when it is earned not because of the age of the students. Even sadder, there are some high school students who have been given the total freedom of high school and they still need 5th grade treatment. Note to all teachers…. “ Freedom is given with responsibility, not with age!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Wonderful day. I choose to move with joy and ease. Life is simple and easy. I love and approve of myself. I am learning and growing more and more everyday. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

And Let It Begin With Me

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I have often heard the song “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me”. Well I soon realized that there’s no one else it can begin with because we only can control ourselves. We can influence others but ultimately the only person we can control is us.

Peace
What is Peace?
Is it the quiet of your mind?
Is it having things the way you want them?
Is it a feeling when things are calm as the sea?
What is Peace?
And if it must begin with me
I must be at peace with myself
Peace within gives peace without
Peace
Peace
Peace to heart that has grown cold
Is not the peace we wish for our soul
Peace to a heart filled with sadness
May be the longing for a little gladness
Peace
Peace
Peace to a heart filled with pain
May be just to feel the sunshine or rain
To feel peace
Peace
To feel harmony
To feel joy
To feel love
Love
What is Love?
Is it the two hearts joined together?
Is it knowing you’re accepted for who you are?
Is it the feeling when things are flowing like art?
What is Love?
And if it must begin with me
I must be in love with myself
Love within shows Love without
Love
Love
Love
If we are to Love
Let Love begin with me
If we are to Trust
Let Trust begin with me
If we are to Dream
Let the Dreams begin in me
And if we are to be at peace
Let peace begin with me

Daily Affirmations: Today is a lovely day! I move with joy and ease. I love and approve of myself just as I am. I live in a safe and secure world. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I speak peace and love over our country. I am at peace. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

The rules of policing and due process needs to change. No matter what the outward problems, the inward problem is the lack of love. So I , with my small voice, speak love.

Grateful, Thankful, Blessed!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! A lot of times when things start happening for us that we had hoped would happen, it scares us. Wait! Stop! I should speak for me. It scares me. I start thinking, “why would they want me”? Or “it’s probably gonna cost some money” . I feel like a lot of times that’s the situation I create for myself. However this time, I’m going just stop and say Thank You! I’m going to stop questioning God and trying to figure out what will be required of me. I’m going to just be totally grateful and open to every new opportunity that comes my way! I’m grateful, thankful, and blessed!
