Negative Representation

“Stories affect how we live our lives, how we see other people, how we think about ourselves.” ~ Michael Morgan

We know the representation of black people in America disseminated to the world through soft exports like the media impacts how we are perceived. Why is it so difficult for us to understand that the negative images we see of ourselves also impact … us?

“…the system we live in is designed to kill us, regardless of how we’re surviving and navigating within it.” ~ Ashleigh Shackelford

Inhale Seeing, Exhale Negative Stereotypes…
Inhale Believing, Exhale Self-Hate…
Inhale Being, Exhale Self-Sabotage…

Works

Now is not the time to grow weary, get distracted, become cynical, or loose hope. Now is the time to put into action that which you have been purposed to do….

“…You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove.” James 2: 18 The Message.

Inhale Conviction, Exhale Fear…

Stillborn

Most of us have not actually experienced what happens after our bodies cease to function. But some of us have experienced an emptiness that results from not giving into the passion we feel…not allowing our desire to make a difference, not giving voice to our dreams, not allowing our hears to break…not giving birth to what is inside us that will lead us to our purpose. And isn’t not giving birth to the seed inside you the same as death?

“Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul.” ~ Wayne Dyer

Inhale Birth, Exhale Death…
Inhale Being, Exhale Emptiness…
Inhale Beginning, Exhale Desolation…

Present Moment

I am a planner. I believe the way to make a vision reality is to plan the route that makes the most sense and head in that direction. But sometimes I can get so caught up in adhering to my plan for the experience that I miss the experience!

So I’ve learned to try to keep the planning simple so I can take the time to enjoy the journey.

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41-42

Inhale Being, Exhale Doing…
Inhale Presence, Exhale Planning…
Inhale Now, Exhale Next…
