in terms of my imagination, using my “mindsight” and not my “eyesight” helps me to “see” possibilities. it gets me out of my “box” and moves towards a great life. creating goals out of my “longings” are enriching.
Falling down + getting up + learning = growth
serenity…hmmmmm serenity for me is “in the zone” like at my calmest yet doing something/performing an action. I mean, yes, at the beach early in the morning w waves and a breeze is serenity for sure. it is a place for calm reflection. I wake at 3:30 most mornings and do gratefulness.org around 4 while all the kids and wife are asleep…so yes that is serenity. however, speaking w students or parents and connecting is serenity. back in my high school and college bas...

I wake at 3:30 most mornings and do gratefulness.org around 4 while all the kids and wife are asleep…so yes that is serenity. however, speaking w students or parents and connecting is serenity. back in my high school and college basketball days I felt a calm “serenity” in the midst of intense action.
I am grateful my profession is my vocation n it is serving students n families. I am working to extend the reach of my services
I put a reminder on my phone to breathe. every hour it pops up n whatever I’m doing, I stop and oxygenate my brain. I took breathing and my heart pumping for granted. I am very grateful for my movement abilities and work daily to keep them intact for as long as I am blessed w them.
I am grateful. When we bless the meal, we give thanks for the miracles and the sweat involved
Empathy. Seeing the good in everyone n everything. Not rushing through the day n missing opportunities. Beginning my morning w my 30 to be sturdy will set my mind n intentions towards tenderness n toughness.
fun!! real!! honest!! encouraging!! positive outlook on life!! knowledge seeking and reading!! loving!!
Rush a news show, take the microphone n proclaim “stop letting the bad n the evil rule ur day. Live gratefully n claim ur power u already possess! Rise up 2gether n feel our collective goodness!!”
How Can I Serve Others. Believing in my message/content to the point that I can’t help but deliver it each day to everyone I meet.
Jesus. he lived simply, spoke w clarity, spread love and power (i.e. power in self love, helping others, placing people ahead of profits/prestige), and spoke truth to power. The more I study the prophet Muhammad, I am certain I will find the same.
I have grown to the point where (much more frequently) I begin to react and catch myself before I actually react. living grateful plus teaching “accurate thinking” and how to recognize our “thought holes” has helped immensely.
as the place of possibilities and opportunities that it truly is. putting out grateful energy, love, how can I serve energy, and working 2gether is greater than being divided resolve.
with capitalism in place, less and less each day. from that standpoint, nature offers me another reason to organize collectively and take actions that will benefit our children, grandchildren, and beyond. The nature we are blessed with now gives me life and energy. It gives me real faith that we will bring back as much as possible of the nature we have lost.
living in respect for others and for everything is synonymous w living in gratefulness. it keeps me open to life’s possibilities and opportunities. when I live with a lack of respect for others and when I live in a lack of gratefulness/thanksgiving, I truly close myself in almost all situations to what would help me in my life.
I feel generous continuously and give what I have (which many times is not too much hahhhh). but my spirit is to give and I am so thankful for that spirit.
Babies are magical. The miracle of birth is enough to teach joy. the miracle of each day we are given is reason for joy.
as I read the question today out loud, I immediately thoughts of Les Brown the speaker. He has a stirring riff regarding saying yes to your life!! and he shares the African Proverb of when there is no enemy within, no outside forces or enemies can do us no harm. yes to dreams and possibilities and yes to the actions/work it requires to make them happen.
