When we fail to “QUESTION”

Posted on Updated on

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 Why are history books so outdated?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 own
Yes, 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 own
Money, 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.

Tough Love

There’s a saying in life that can apply to various situations, and it goes, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

How often have you recalled being a child and saying “I can’t wait til I’m grown! Ain’t nobody gon’ be able to tell me nothing!” ?

So, you grow up into a man or a woman with that SAME child-like mentality. Only now, the things you used to do and get away with as a child have adult consequences. Then, you want to revert to being a child again and put the blame on others for your poor decisions because you “grown now and can’t nobody tell you nothing”.

“Yeah, overlooking your tomorrow’s til they finally came”. [Tupac]

“You make your bed hard, you the one that has to sleep in it. Don’t expect me to cosign your BS cause I taught you better. Learn the lessons. Handle your business, and choose your battles wisely”. [A Mother’s Wisdom]

“If you can’t feed your baby, then don’t have a baby”. [Michael J]

“How you gone live right, when you ain’t right within?” [Lauryn Hill]

“Do something TODAY, that your future self will thank you for.” [Proverb]

“Become the change YOU want to see in YOUR OWN Life”.

Patience, perseverance, and prayer.
