Just Questioning

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I often wonder is there any separation between God and us? If God is in everything, wouldn’t that means he lives within us? I not trying to say that we’re God, but I am trying say that God is in us and we are in God. And if this be true, there is no way we can evil sinners like some people would have us to believe? Why would God, the creator of everything good, create something that he intended to destroy?

The more I think about it, the stories I heard as a child no longer make sense to me. God is a loving creator. He made us to be loving creators. Let’s start by loving ourselves and creating a great life!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Terrific Day! I choose to feel good about myself. I am on the right path. I am a loving creator, created by a loving God. I love and approve of myself. Loving myself always makes me feel good. I am in God and God is in me. That’s Love Y’all! 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

Just a Thought! Truly Just a Thought!

Hey Y’all! I was laying bed watching The Prince of Egypt on Hulu. I took off work this morning to go to the doctor. Anywho. . . I was thinking about how the end of Most movies about Moses. They the crossing of the Red Sea the most Majestic event ever. It is an awesome event. But if you read the rest of Exodus, you will see that most of those people that saw the Mighty move of God, died before they experienced the land of riches. The movies don’t show 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. This was after God had already showed them how great and powerful he was. They had been praying and begging God to make a change in their life for many years. Then things started happening for them to realize the vision of freedom that they had prayed and begged for. However after their freedom was realized, they still didn’t make it to the promised land. ( the land of riches. . .flowing with milk and honey)

This is a lesson not about freedom but about mindset. Even if God does miraculous work to help you physically, you have to change your mindset. If you keep the same Slave mentally, you will never realize the blessings in store for you. Case in point, I grew up very poor. It was an act of God that I was able attend college. People and events tried to turn me around and make me quit. But by the hand of God I graduated. However, my mindset was still the mindset of poverty. So as a working adult, I spend almost ever pay period with my account in the negative. I was playing catch-up all the time. ” I might as well spend this before it gets taken ” ” I spent my whole life not having, so now I’m getting everything I want” These thoughts kept me broke and struggling. I just recently changed the way I think about money. I’ve now started sacrificing my usual traveling and eating out, to investing and saving. I now feel as if I’m building wealth and residual income. Now because my mind is a money magnet, I’m attracting more money and keeping it!

It all in your thought process!

The Cost of Freedom

As we continue to discuss what it means to be free. Look at what it looks like to be limited and unlimited. Living free but limited is just like the animals in the zoo. You think you can do what you want but it’s all in the confinement of what others allow. That’s we have laws in place. These laws are good because it keeps order. Then there are rules which we place on ourselves and others. These rules like one type of person can’t do this or that. Or rules like if you are born this race, economic level, you can’t live this or that type of life. These type of rules are unnecessary and their only purpose is to control others. So in this case maybe the price for freedom is giving up the fear in us that causes us to place rules ( or stereotypes) on others. True freedom starts within the mind.

Freedom Affirmations: I am free to feel loved and to love. I am free to have a joyful life. I am free to feel safe wherever I am. I am free to be wealthy, healthy, whole, and complete. I am free to love myself unconditionally. My mind is free. ALL IS WELL IN MY MIND. ALL IS WELL IN MY LIFE. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

The Cost of Freedom!

Is there a cost for freedom? Does one group suffer, in order for another to go free? What is “freedom” anyway? Can we actually do what we want, when we want, how we want? Or is freedom just a lie we tell ourselves as we fit into someone else’s mold of who we should be? Whatever freedom is or whatever we think it is, there is a price. For example, in the African American community, the price for today’s freedoms were paid by the generation before. ( I’m really conflicted about this example. It’s just something about desiring the greener grass on the other side, rather than making the brown grass that you have greener) I digress. Anyway another example would be our military, who sacrifice theirs lives, their family, their limbs, and their sanity so that can have the freedoms of being American.

I used to tell my Godson, ” everything that’s free, ain’t always free!” When you’re given something, there is always an expectation that you will something back. Whatever it may be. The next few days we will discuss Freedom and what it means. Please share your thoughts. Sometimes I’m way off in what I’m thinking.

Freedom Affirmations: My Mind is free and clear. I am free to think positive thoughts. I am free to live a prosperous and healthy life. I am free to explore all that my mind can explore. I have an open mind. I love and approve of myself. I am free to move with joy and ease! ALL IS WELL IN MY MIND. ALL IS WELL IN MY LIFE. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Take It Back!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Every negative comment I have made about myself, I take it back! All the jokes I make about myself so that others won’t, I take it back. All the times I looked at someone else and put them above me, I take it bad. Every time I dislike someone who reminds me of me, I take it back.

In this journey of loving myself. I have to learn to love every part of me, unconditionally. It’s hard at times. If you have lived a life of putting others above yourself and putting yourself down, it’s hard to say you love yourself and truly mean it. Even saying the word love is kinda iffy. Because I say I love to others and I put them above me. So love only comes when someone needs me. Which is all discombobulated . . . But little by little and Day by Day start taking back those negative things you say to yourself and watch your life get better!!! I take back every negative comments I have said about myself and replace it with I love you more each day.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I love me more than anything else. It’s okay to be in love with me. This love is not my ego or vanity or pride. It is true and unconditional love for me. I am open and receptive to only good. I live in a safe and secure world. 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. #IBlessMySchoolWithLove #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Am I Making A Difference?

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! In everything I do, I always ask myself; Am I making a difference in someone’s life? Am I making a difference in my life? With teaching, sometimes it’s hard to tell. Even in ministry, it’s hard to tell. You keeping teaching the same thing over and over and the people/ kids keep making the same mistakes. Then one day the child/ person seems to self-correct and make good choices on their own. That’s give you enough to keep striving and teaching.

But I’m not satisfied with those small victories, I want to start seeing greater numbers being affected. I want to reach the world! Start children at an early age learning to choose right. It will carry with them as they get older. I hear stories from parents all over, how Simon the Self Control Seal helped their children make right choices. That has given me the strength to keep striving and pushing!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Awesome day. I choose to feel good about myself. I am creating a wonderful world. People are always helpful. Life is joyful and easy. I am healthy, wealthy, comfortable, whole, and complete and I love myself. 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. #IBlessMySchoolWithLove #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

The Gig is Up! Just Say Thank You!

Good Morning Y’all! There’s a song by the Williams Brothers that says, “I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody who can save anybody.” That’s the way we were taught to think in church. “Don’t think more highly of yourself than you ought.” But it doesn’t say put yourself down or be a nobody.But so many people resonate with thinking humility means to put yourself down. When someone sings well and you compliment them, they say “It’s all Him and not me.” I say the gig is up! Just say thank you and go on! It’s good to give thanks unto God but when someone compliments you on what they already know God has given you, it is a slap in the face for you to say “It wasn’t me”. As to say that you don’t know how to use what God has blessed you with. He has to come and take over because you’re not a good steward of your talent. I say, the gig is up! Just say thank you. It’s time to stop putting yourself down and stand in your own power! I will always be SOMEBODY telling everybody about the power within us given by God that can change you and you alone! Change the way you think and believe, you will change your life! Others can only be changed when they change their thinking as well, but that’s not your work. #elevateyourmind

Join The Dream of Love

Hello most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers!!!! I hope you are enjoying your MLK day!!! I was just thinking about the civil rights movement and all the work Dr. King did. I then realized that everyone is fighting for the right to be loved and to love themselves without having worry about if others approve. I believe the fight was for self approval. To approve of yourself makes it easy to approve of others. Everybody knows that when you hate someone, you are really hating that part of yourself that is just like that person you hate. Loving and approving yourself and all parts of yourself even the parts that  you don’t like will help us love others. Churches and preachers please stop preaching hate and start preaching love and acceptance and self-approval! That’s the dream I feel Dr. King spoke of. We are all created equal and that means we all need to learn to love ourselves and learn to love others even the seemingly unlovable !
