Lifeitude

Firstly, I did not come up with this word. I saw it on the side of a bag of apple crisps. I was so happy to see it that I had to write a blog about it. The definition is just living life to the fullest. So this company called "Good Health" has this on the back of their packaging, and they emphasize just being good. They also talk about how you can sit back and enjoy these crisps and have a great lifeitude while doing it. That got my attention. Not only have I not heard that combination of words together, but I believe that it's a perfect one to add to our vocabulary. It kind of encompasses everything doesn't it?

   I have to reflect on this past New Years Eve. It was a joyful night. There were about 250 people in front of me and I was there to perform for them along with about 11 others on a big stage. the drinks were being consumed in adult fashion, the music was loud, and the mood was high. I was present, yet I drifted off here and there because I was excited a…

Year End, Year New

If you are like me, the years pass with a bit more reflection than they did in past times. This passed year was another exciting one for me. I have learned even more about myself and I have learned even more about some of the people that I care most about. Unfortunately, I have had to relearn that there should never be a time when you are running after someone to confirm that they love you or care about you. Those who are in your life the right way, will always be no matter what. They will never duck away and make you question your place with them. They express their connection with you many times without words, but with action.

   This past year was also a year of strength reconditioning. Certain things reared their head that made me want to built my own vessel and be the captain of my own ship as it relates to all of the things that I do for my livelihood. I love to call it that, because you can never say that word without reading the word "live". So whether you are h…

Ask For It The Right Way

I was always told that if you want something, you should ask for it. This applies to everything from a bag of potato chips all the way up to your own private island in my book. You are the only person that actually knows exactly what you want at any given moment on any day. I have had conversations with a myriad of people on this issue and I am amazed at all of the different ways that people see it. Each one of us is unique of course, so it's great that we see it in our own personal way.

   Now right before we ask for something, most times our inner voice is pitching a fit. I would guess that this is the same for most people. I cannot possibly know that this is on the money, but I would bet the farm on it. Well, I don't have a farm, but you get what I am saying. The voice is telling us that we may want to think of not asking for that thing. It may be telling us that we do not deserve it at this particular moment. It may even be saying that we are just not ready yet. However…

Goals, Roles, And What We Have Been Told

It's that time of the year once again. Many of us will claim to change for good in the coming year. We will look back at our past year and realize that we are not as far along as we would like to be. Some of us will even see the past year as a success and strive to reach even higher. Many of us will take the past year and dissect it like a lab rat and see things that will make us cringe as well. Concentrating on deaths, breakups, money lost or stolen from us, as well as things that we should have said or done. I bring all of this up because I got a call from a great friend today that left me a message welcoming me to create goals for the next year with them. This is not an everyday request at all. However, I would expect this from this person. The focus, the hunger, the foresight to conquer the road ahead by setting the tempo as they wish instead of dancing to any song that comes on the radio. Which by the way, is a great talent to have as well. I did not reach all of my goals …

Silence Is Its Own Style Of Feedback

How many times in our lives have we lost touch with someone from any part of our lives? It could be from work, play, the neighborhood, or what have you. We spoke to them all of the time and then out of no where, they are gone!! Poof, Bam, Pow!! You look for them in any way that you know how to and you come up with nothing. If they are really important, you go deep into all sorts of social media and you eventually wind up connecting with them. I have done this a few times in this life and it is so much fun to feel the results afterwards. It just feels great to know that you are loved enough to be sought out by anyone for that matter.

   Now for the reason that this post was thought of in the first place. I find as I mature that human beings have so many unique ways of communicating and they may not all be for each one of us. I now know as an adult that no one owes any other human being anything at the end of the day. We are all here to place our mark on the world in that special way…

Did They Feel Me?

Today I came into contact with two different beings that made me once again pay attention to the ever present energy that I am constantly seeing and putting out into the world. Firstly, I was in a supermarket today and I was just walking around picking out a few staples. As I approached the line, I thought to myself, "What an interesting man that was in front of me." He had kind of a rough look, but he had an energy that caught my attention. I have no idea why, he just did. I immediately felt that it would be cool to just give a friendly holiday greeting and just say something. Then right when I was going to say something, he turned and pushed his fist out to touch my fist and wished me a a happy belated Merry Christmas. I returned the fist and wished him the same. Then the cashier did not see that my things were not in his purchase and she added some if them to his total. I told her, she apologized and took them off. I told the guy that he almost bought my groceries. He …
