Lee Daniels, The Butler

All I can say is that this movie literally changed me, my life, my views, my heart, my soul, my flesh, my process, my plans….
I haven’t cried soooooo hard and felt such a touch from a movie in a VERY long time!


It made me think of my parents and my late grandmother.. .. My father taught me about politics, histoey, civil rights, slavery, the mega importance of education and the stock market as early as 8 years old …

I was mad, sad, crying,  bitter, quiet, humbling, irritated, happy, excited, prayerful, unloved,  disrespected, ignored, ignited, proud, focused, determined and changed……..

I’m better now and grateful


Today’s – Inspiration


You wake up every morning, wondering what the day has in store for you. It could be a fun day full of happy surprises, new friendships, and accomplishment of new milestones. Or, it could be a lousy day, with the boss yelling at you, your car breaking down, or your kid doing something they should not have. Some days are good, some are bad and it is just LIFE and we have to learn to deal with it all in stride….. Is it hard – OF COURSE but should we allow it to “kill our day” NO!

How do you react to these incidents? Do you mope around and say, “Life is hard!”? Or do you square your shoulders, and say, “No problem, life is good!”?

Albert Einstein said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” If you look at life positively, you will find every hurdle a stepping stone to success. Instead of making excuses, you will find reasons to succeed. Each failure teaches us important lessons in life. Don’t be disappointed or disillusioned by your misadventures. Life is good when you accept failures and success.

Recharge your soul with positive thinking. Start your day by saying that life is good. Quotes that build a positive energy are great stress busters. With a never-say-die attitude, you can see the silver lining in every grey cloud.
