It Starts With US

I dunno, I was going to post something more fruitful today. However, as I continue to see more and more fear rising on social media about the current nationwide events, I just want to say,

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

No Limits

“No matter the circumstances, do not accept defeat at any cost.”

As you all well know, I’ve been a community activist/advocate for more than a decade at this point, but to avoid redundancy, only a quick recap is necessary for all you lovely new readers who’ve recently tuned in. 

For the last four weeks, and remainder of the next two, I have been doing videography for an organization with intentions to advocate for many positive things locally and nationwide.

Great strides.

I’m super grateful that I was given the chance and opportunity to be their media coverage gal’

As I prepare myself to head out, I am also crunched for time. 

Many of my readers have recently asked me, “What started you on your advocacy journey?”

I suppose that is why I like IG, Snapchat, Twitter, and even Facebook now, because it creates an outlet for my readers to connect with me and ask me questions.

Which reminds me!

With all the questions I’ve been getting asked, I’ve decided that I’m going to do a Q and A post.

I did not EVER think my bloggerverse would grow large enough to do one of those.

Celebrate good times YEAH! 


Right!  The point:

In our lives many things are at stake. WE all know that. For me, watching my peers, family members, and much more struggle with epidemics. (Do I need to get into specifics? Cause’ I’m sure y’all know what that means.)

These experiences impacted me in a large way. Understanding that there was a need in our community that wasn’t being met, and is still being unfulfilled…. Initiated my flame. From there, the fire bloomed. As other concerns arose, and became just as prominent, I realized I cared enough to make that difference.

What fuels your fire to make a difference?  

Despite the fact that those needs are being un-met especially in regards to the youth of OUR community, and nationwide, I still fight.

Why? 

Because I believe…At all costs.

At the end of the day, That is all it takes. Believers, and do’ers.

Our youth hold the key to our future.

Therefore, you must ask yourself,

“What kind of future do you want to see, live in and breed? 

Mold it.

“It takes only a few seconds for our lives to change forever, it is in those moments that we can either cower, or take reign. The difference lays within the choice.
#StuffRareSays

In our lives we all have a choice. Whether we want to make a difference, or just ride along and be OK with the choices made for us. When we allow those choices to be made for us, they are not always uplifting, but also made through injustice. Let today be the day that you decide to make a difference. As stated in a post earlier this week,

“Stand up for a brighter future.”

As the CW is now promoting, stand to defy.

Against the divide.
Against injustice.
Against cultural rifts.
Against Environmental degradation.
etc.

Maybe we can all leave this post today striving to…

“Put the UNITY back into COMMUNITY.”



Don’t Get Lost Now…

Everyone wants to find themselves. But, we tend to forget that our true selves are unique. A wolf doesn’t lose sleep over the talk of sheep for a reason. Embrace yourselves, love the person you are because no body can be YOU better than you. When you try to “Steal Ideas”, or “Underhand” Others … you’re not hurting them. You are hurting the value of your journey. Your destiny Is your’s and YOURS only. So….Get it!

See Ya On The Next One…….
