The further you get from caring what people think…the closer you get to totally loving who you are. Time waits for no one…how many steps have you taken today?
Stepping into your own, often times, means standing on your own, making decisions that will satisfy your own ambitions. At some point you have to believe in your own abilities and trust in yourself, because at the final curtain call you want to be able to say I did live my life to the fullest…GD
Each time I visit this quaint, quiet, non-congested city in this inland valley, it gets harder to readjust when I return to the crammed, over-populated Bay Area city where I work to make a living. But we gotta make it do what it do y’all..
Look! No, there. Can’t you see it? Try harder. Focus. Darkness hasn’t the power to keep light from seeping through… we just need to know where to look. (wink) GD
With each passing day, I embrace change & growth by being productive and progressive in my living…distancing myself from counter-productive mind-sets that our locked into a stagnated exisistence. Evolution flourishes when the mind is open to receive..
Standing at the cusp of success, know that there are always those prepared to say something, who wait in anticipation, believing you will fail, so concentrate on never missing a step, but if you should, climb 2 more the next time…
The life of a literary expressionist is filled with a creative aura that is often times misunderstood & under-rated, but Langston, Toni, Terry, James Earl, E. Lynn, James B., Maya and countless others have paved the way for us…and their contributions are all the inspiration I need…
One, two…for the sky so blue…three, four…for the breeze too lovely to ignore…five, six…for the day’s enchanting lift…seven, & eight…for this peaceful mental state… What are you doing, GD? Just counting my blessings, that’s all…
You know something that strikes me as odd? How the ones who may share your bloodline, or those supposedly close to you ,can rally around someone else’s creative ventures, but barely even acknowledge your successes.
It’s all good though, because they cannot even fathom the bright future that’s in store for me. Strive without yielding… GD
Some of the more frustrating events in life will humble you and force you to your knees, but you must remind yourself that in the long run you’ll be so much better. Afterwards you’ll have more character and confidence than you ever dreamed possible.
Passion…the olive branch presented to me in life which reminds me that after the 40 days & 40 nights of rain there was, eventually, dry land. During the storm fear & uncertainty riddles the core of our faith, but when we look upward and see that stellar rainbow….we always remember “The Promise” GD
