When we see things happening in society and fail to QUESTION it, we are actually, failing to grow. If we are not part of the solution, we are part of the problem. Why is most of society in poverty? Why are there so many homeless people on the streets in every city you visit? Why are there so many children in foster care? Why do we have so many in private prisons? Why isn’t financial education courses taught in schools? Why are history books so outdated? Makes you think, right?! I hope so. Ask the questions, think of solutions, we can make a difference. Song by Billy Holiday “God Bless the child”.
Them that’s got shall get Them that’s not shall lose So the Bible said and it still is news Mama may have, Papa may have But God bless the child that’s got his own That’s got his ownYes, the strong gets more While the weak ones fade Empty pockets don’t ever make the grade Mama may have, Papa may have But God bless the child that’s got his own That’s got his ownMoney, you’ve got lots of friends Crowding round the door When you’re gone and spending ends They don’t come no more Rich relations give Crust of bread and such You can help yourself But don’t take too much Mama may have, Papa may have But God bless the child that’s got his own That’s got his own
Make That Change
- Take a look in the mirror
- Be the change you want to see in the world
- When you think about quitting, think about why you started
- Read a self-development book, gain more knowledge
- Each one teach one
- Surround yourself with positive, supportive and successful people
Keep on improving and learning people. Ask the hard questions and then do something about it.

#love conquers all “…but above all things- be true to yourself and your purpose”~ ET
This journey of self-discovery has been amazing. Also, very challenging. If you are a first time author, you know exactly what I mean. Even seasoned authors will attest to the amount of time and effort that goes into living in your purpose and how overwhelming it can be at times. For some it’s all about the fame and glory, if that’s all you’re in it for that’s fine. As for me, I have a different agenda and if fame and glory, riches and wealth come with it, that was a part of my destiny all along.
I’m so glad that I decided to walk out in faith although I almost didn’t because of fear of failure or not being perfect. Every post I share with you has been about my growth as an individual and I hope that my experiences in life will shed light on the power of believing in yourself, and persevering through uncertainty.
It’s been a long day and now I’m ready for some relaxation. So, I thought I’d type a few words here and call it a night. Look for my next few articles where I discuss some things I learned from self-publishing. Like whether it’s a good idea to use a vanity publisher or not and what to look out for if you do.
Greetings! The last time I published a post was in July during the summer months when there were flowers blooming, insects buzzing, and the sun beaming down relentlessly on us. My how time flies. That was three months ago. So, let’s catch up.
My previous post was all about lights, camera, and action. Well, I participated in a Mics, Camera, Action seminar since, and it was packed with information on building wealth, running a business, and delivering your best to your clientele. Awesomeness is what I’d like to call that group of women (oh, and one man.) 🙂 I wasn’t feeling my best for about a month due to a neck injury that had me laid up in bed. But through physical therapy, and numerous doctor visits, I’m back up on my feet and working again. Talk about being grateful- that I am! When I became incapacitated, I appreciated the little things that many take for granted- you know, the ability to walk up straight, and run, have feeling in your fingers and full range of motion in your arms and neck without pain. Now that I have regained the use of my limbs, I’m ready to get back to work. Health equals wealth, indeed.
But wait a minute- I look around and see that the season has changed- thus the title of this blog post, “Where have all the flowers gone?” It’s fall, one of my favorite seasons- a time to let go of the old and cuddle up for the winter before spring brings in the new and all over again.
Well, that’s what’s been happening in my world. Hope everyone is feeling well and getting ready for the holidays.While I had some time off- I read a few books:
The Magic by Rhonda Byrne
Killer Genius by Steven Van Patten
The Book of 11:11 Quotes by Ralph Smart
Excellent reading material, a combination of mystery, knowledge, and inspiration. Just what my soul needed.
During my time away, I’ve finally connected with a publishing consultant and team to help with the final draft to be released by December 2015. Just in time to help keep friends and family on track with their personal budgets for the holidays!
That’s all for now, until next time…
Wishing you peace and prosperity,
