The Power of laughing at one's mistakes and moving on. So yesterday I decided to turn in my essay homework early which is something I never do, but I had looked at it for days and thought what the heck turn it in then enjoy my day. Needless to say, my professor must be waiting by the computer for something to come in over the weekend she graded it and sent it back and oh good lord she docked me by a point because I omitted the most significant charge. I omitted the charge of attempted murder.
I had to laugh because after all of that reviewing and re reviewing I never noticed that I had not included the most significant offense. So I brushed my ego off and moved on to do the extra credit which I received a perfect score on so I redeemed myself.
The struggle in Law School is real!
I wrote this to say that even the mentor, teacher, motivator, mediator and whatever title you choose to attach to me, even I have off days but I know I have to keep moving because tomorrow is waiting for my arrival to make greater things happen or to get something right that was wrong prior.
Keep moving people, just keep moving tomorrow is waiting for you with open arms. :)
Not everything I do is on social media. I do not inform social media of the conversations I have with everyone. I do not air my laundry dirty or clean on social media When I am hurting I certainly do not ask for help on social media. I could go on but I believe many of you understand where I am coming from.
Social media with all of its great point have folks utilizing it for pointless means. Social Media allows many to become what they are inside really.
Many only care what you are doing so that they and either out do you or pray that you fall. Some want to know who you are connected do so that they can name drop themselves into a spot in the main dining hall. Others are waiting to see if your relationships are in turmoil so that they can step into your shoes; in some cases on a "more permanent" basis. the ones closes to us will be the main sources reveling in your pain and dancing in your tear like a beautiful dance in the rain.
Lesson for today: Keep your friends, family, frenemies and others out of your business, personal and professional. Only the worth should be allowed in your private corners and spaces.

I get on social media this morning, and so far I see folks acting like children, others announcing friends having life-threatening illnesses and some have left us over night. People life is far too short, and for some, it is getting shorter. LIVE a GREAT LIFE, DO FOR OTHERS, LAUGH, LOVE and DO your VERY BEST. SOME of us may never become that millionaire or billionaire, but OUR JOURNEYS will be PRICELESS.
The older I get, I feel the rage inside of many, and I hear the cries of those yelling through their silence. I am so glad that my illness a few years ago took me away to a beautiful place I know where I am going to. Do you know where your soul will go when your time ends? It depends on you and the journey you choose to walk. The GREAT part is that "MAN" does not give you your keys to the gates of HEAVEN!
What MAN thinks, says or does has no bearing on the choice you make to become the best you possible, leave the prunes where they are; become another Apple in GODS eye.
Anyway, have a blessed Sunday, remember to shine brightly, even when everything and one tried to dim your shine.
My 2 Cents of Cerebral for today: 05/15/2017 This is long over due!
Some folks need to grow up
Others need to wise up
Still more need to show up
Even more need to stand up
Those who choose to keep complaining and messing up
Need to have a seat and shut the hell up!
WE may not realize it but there are many watching what we say and or do. Those folks may not say anything to you personally but they have much to say when things hit the fan or after a tragedy happens.
When you have been there for others even in the midst of your own storms you will learn who would do the same when you find yourself on the receiving end.
When people show their true selves, believe they are exactly who they portray to be. All is well when they are receiving what you are giving even when you have little to give. When they have little to give you are on your own because they chose to keep what they had for themselves.
It is OK to walk away and never look back because someone is out there waiting for you to be their new beacon who will appreciate the light you bring to their dark world. Many will be willing to share the shine when they see your light dimming!

FOCUS Women's Global Conference October 6-8, 2017
As I was driving home today noticing how beautiful it was outside, I had a moment of brilliant clarity. I realized that it does not hurt anymore. I have been lied on, called all types of names. People have attacked me based on lies and manipulations, but I realized that none of that matters anymore. Walking away was the best decision I could have made thank the good LORD for showing me the next door to walk through.
The interesting part is that I do not miss anyone. Those meant to be in my life are, and those who have used me as their excuse are not. So to those who forsake, disrespected, lied to and on and prayed not for but against me. I forgive you, and I love you, but I cannot be in your world.
To those who take the time to read this, I am not without sin and mistakes; none of us are but I never deserved the treatment I have put up with for 53 years. So today is my day to say I sleep well at night and I know where my soul will go in the end. GOD put each and every person who has brought the fire to my door in my life to bring me to this very moment. I got the help I needed, and I am not afraid to admit it.

Do not return the favor!
They say that 'hurt people; hurt people" this only makes another wounded person. We need to either try to understand the side of our opponent or we can only say a prayer and walk away. Walking away may not be the likely choice, but it may be the best option.
