Always Tomorrow… (2-16-2011)

Some of us believe that there is always tomorrow to make up for the hurtful things we say, and the hateful things we do to those we love, but that is a great misconception.

Sometimes in the blink of an eye the opportunity to make amends slips away because of that final transition from this life into the next, and then we are left with regret that gets buried deep in our subconscious and it either affects us  emotionally or it hangs around the forefront of our minds haunting us for the rest of our days.

In the heat of the moment we say things without thinking about the consequences to protect ourselves from being deemed us “vulnerable” or “weak”, but you know something, the aftermath of turbulent verbal and physical encounters aren’t worth the price we pay for the guilt that we are burdened with after the battle is over.

I’ve known people to get in heated discussions and turn their back on friendship forever.  Friends who were very much a part of each others lives on a daily basis, sharing joy, laughter, tears and heartache.  Their families had been on camping trips together, shelled peas together, had backyard BBQ’s together.  The children became just as close as the parents were as well, but when the parents fell out of friendship, that funneled over into the friendships that the children had established.  The children really had no choice in that matter, because once things imploded the lines of division were drawn and no one was allowed to cross over.

It saddens me at times whenever I hear people engaged in destructive conversations, or see them physically fighting one another all because of a disagreement or flaw in judgment.

Life is really too precious and short to hold onto anger, and those who choose to ride out this leg of existence in that manner aren’t robbing anyone of joy except themselves.

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
