I have come to realize something very important. I can’t be categorized or labeled by one thing. I’m not a fanatic about anything other than people being honest with each other and the truth. People have all kinds of versions of that and will justify their truth any way they can so I’m learning to take that with a grain of salt. Forget what they say, pay attention to what they do.
My life is way outside the box. I can’t do one thing for the rest of my life. I’e tried it and I felt trapped like a caged bird. This is my “aha” moment. I don’t care anymore, not sure I ever did, about how people perceive me. People say you should do one thing and get really great at it…..I am great at one thing…..being authentic to me.
So while being this plethora of many things may not make millions or give me a major platform, I truly feel more free than ever before because now I do what want to do whether it’s the popular thing to do or not. The brand is ME.
I’m Black……I’m White
I’m Hot……I’m Cold
I’m Nice….I’m Nasty
I’m Sweet….I’m Sour
I’m Good……I’m Bad
I’m Young….I’m Old
I’m Rich…..I’m Poor
I’m Republican….I’m Democrat
I’m Right…..I’m Wrong
Try as you might to put a label on me, but it’s going to fall right off. I’m finally owning who I am and why I operate the way I do. I’m perfectly fine living an ageless life on purpose.

I will be changing the format of my blog so that I can share information. Instead of giving my opinion, I’ll be giving tidbits of info that I think can be of service to people. I think sharing is caring and will give people the chance to learn about things they may not have heard of before. So stay tuned……I just want to be a source of information to help people live a better life.
Make sure you’re doing what is authentic to you and that you feel great about it. It’s not about what others want you to do….it’s about what defines your purpose
“Your children are not your children.
They are sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For thir souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the make upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness.
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He also loves the bow that is stable.”
― Khalil Gibran
