I love technology, but it can be a double edged sword. It can make our lives easier, all the while making it more complicated. Case 1. Every day I start out each blog with a Thought (Kinyofu’s Empowerment Thought). I type it on my phone and then send it to my blog. When I get […]

Yesterday I called myself doing some web housecleaning and accidentally deleted this blog. That’s right it was gonners. I could have panicked, but I didn’t. I just KNEW there was a way to recover my nine months of hard work, and I just KNEW it was not going to be a headache. I did not […]

What do you think?

Do you know what you think? If you are unsure, a great thing to do to get clarity is to put yourself in a position where you are shaking in your boots. That means intend an action that places you so far outside of your box, or comfort zone, that you start talking to yourself. […]

I am so done with domestic violence, partner violence, street violence, political violence – whatever. ALL VIOLENCE!!!! If you don’t like the way somebody does something, or says something – TOO BAD!

I have a contact in my phone book called ‘Not the one’. This might sound silly, but it is my reminder that this person (who’s name I essentially changed) is history. You see, it is so easy for me to think back and feel bad about the lost possibilities – the possibilities of the future. […]

Have you ever noticed how people tend to define themselves by their job title? Think about it. When asked to “describe yourself” many would answer with the role they play in life, such as: teacher, administrative assistant, doctor, analyst, mother, father, designer, etc. Instead, they could respond with the qualities they bring to the role […]

Today, as I was doing my normal routine outside of my house, I noticed that someone moved a trash can from where it was for years, to a brand new spot. My immediate thought was that that was a stupid thing to do because it seemed to me, to now be in an awkward spot. […]

Allow me to share a bit of my childhood devilishness, as my grandmother would call it. When I was about nine years old, there was a girl about three years younger who lived on my block. I must have had a rough week at school (not that this is any excuse), because I had a […]

To children, adults are larger than life human beings that rule the world where some adults are cool, and others are corny. To children, all adults have some kind of power. Can you remember the adults in your life, especially your those that took care of you? Do you remember that they knew stuff about […]

Quick motivation

When you are self employed, or somehow operate independent of others, you are responsible for creating your own motivation. There is no supervisor to establish the rules and keep you on point, making it easy for you to separate yourself from the tasks at hand. For those times when life gets overwhelming, and you get […]
