When Was The Last Time You Purged?

Many of you are sick and tired of your life, but don’t know why…  Can’t get ahead, can’t find a man/woman, can’t quit crying/griping/fussing/cussing, and you don’t know why…  You don’t feel good about your body, finances, car, thinking, weight and like everything else, you don’t know why…  What is wrong with your life?  Why don’t you have the things you want?  Why can’t you find the man/woman of your dreams???

I’m learning more each day the power those around me, the things I choose to hold onto, and the power the words I speak to myself have over my future…  Some of you may disagree with this, but those closest in the pool of people you choose to deal with hold the power to “make” or “break” you….  The things you hold onto or hoard has the power to depress you…  And the words you speak to yourself and over your life have the power to destroy you…

Many of you aren’t getting ahead because you haven’t purged…  You’re holding onto people you should have served them their walking papers years ago…  You’re holding on because you’re this loyal type of person, hoping they will change, because they’re your “ride or die”….  But I’ve learned if people aren’t pushing (Click “HERE” to read more)

“Soul Mate” or “Sex Partner”? Which Are You Connected To???

Many of you are wondering why your current man/woman isn’t fulfilling your needs…  Why they’re everything you want mentally, but sexually there’s something missing…  He’s hung like a horse; she’s able to sail your ship to a happy ending, but there’s something missing…  Physically and visually they pass, emotionally and spiritually they pass, but when the lights are off, they fail the test with flying colors…  What’s wrong?  What’s keeping him/her from taking you to the peaks you’ve climbed many times before?  You’re not an addict, but you know the “high” of sex so well, and you want it like a crackhead wants a rock…  Now in no way are you comparing your “current bae” to your “ex bae”, but It wasn’t a problem in the past.  Just the thoughts of your “ex” bring chills to your body… They knew what made (Click “HERE” to read more)

His Side Of The Story…

About two weeks ago I served as a panelist at an event hosted by a great friend of mine.  All African American men, but a wide age range of men from 30 to Moses (Yeah that old)…  To be honest, it was quite intriguing to hear the point of views of these  men.  All coming from different era’s and experiences gave birth to a hell of a conversation.  There were moments in which we all agreed, but there were moments where things got pretty heated.  One in particular was when the married guys said the single guys weren’t real men because we saw nothing wrong with a woman paying for the date.   No lie for a minute there, I wanted to get out of my seat and go punch the guy in the face, but I digress…

Sitting next to me was a 65 year old, HETEROSEXUAL, Single, Father of two beautiful daughters, retired police officer, NEVER BEEN MARRIED Man…  As we chatted I asked why he never married and he said, “I haven’t crossed a woman I would like to make that step with”.  Now it’s obvious he’s been sexually active with women because he has two daughters to prove it…  He’s been in serious relationships with women, thought about marriage,  but out of all these women, none of them made him want to say “I do”. Now looking at this guy you couldn’t tell he was even in his  (Click “HERE” to read more)

Never Knew I Looked So Good…

Those who know me, knows I take great pride in my appearance…  Not that I’m all into myself, but as I get older I’m learning the importance of keeping yourself together.  I’ve never been this “Stuck on yaself” type of guy and if truth be told, for years I struggled with the way I viewed myself outwardly.  So yesterday I received a text from a friend of mine that included a screen shot.  It was my picture, but on the profile of someone I’ve never met in my life.  I must admit I had a “WTF” moment, and the “F” didn’t stand for fudge…  I couldn’t understand why someone would take my picture and choose to use it as their own, but from what I understand, this is a common thing on Social Media…  As I was going back and forth with my buddy about the situation, he responded “Pretty is a curse”.  Now I’ve never and still to this day ever considered myself pretty by no means, I’m just an average looking guy, at least this is how I see myself.   But whomever the imposter is thought “I looked pretty good” evidently…

Now when I say “look good”, I’m speaking of my future.  Physical appearance changes with time, so I’m not even so much worried about that aspect of it… But my future must have looked pretty darn good to this person.  My entire life I’ve always known God had an extraordinary plan for me, one that I  (Click “HERE” to read more)

Identity Theft: Who Are You???

Who are you?  Do you even know?  When you strip yourself of the titles and roles, do you know who you are at the core of your existence?  Your identity has been stolen and you don’t even know it…  Stolen by your parents, spouse, children, church and by the world, but because you’ve gone along with it for so long, you don’t even recognize it.  Many of you reading this post have lost yourselves in a world you’ve created yourself…  A world filled with obligations, requirements, roles, and a world in which your true self doesn’t exist…  Each day you go through life without taking a moment to do anything that makes your soul smile…  You’re constantly busy running from meetings to sports game; church to prepping dinner and lunch for the week; work to teachers meetings, but what about YOU?  What about doing the things you want to do?  Yeah I already know, there’s no time for you, right???  No time to give back, replenish, nor is there time to take a break and relax…

You’re busy being mom/dad….  Pastor/Deacon/Ministry Leader…  Son/daughter… Busy being everything the world wants you to be, so there’s no time for being who you truly are…  So why are you so busy being everything but you?  Is it (Click “HERE” to read more)
