“Signs” by Author G D Grace

Challenges of life present themselves subtle and blatantly in…

the mistakes we make and the challenge of overcoming and making things right…


the decisions we make that weren’t as sound as we’d hope they’d be…


the friends we bring into our lives who weren’t as good for us as we were to them…


the personal criticisms we make about ourselves and other people…


the judgement we make of others to subconsciously separate ourselves from their dilemma’s…

(as if we are so different)


the lack of confidence we riddle our character’s with countless and numerous times…


all that past baggage we allow to accompany us as we trek down that path of life.

Our differences are what define our individuality.

The crimson that runs through all of our veins is a symbol of our vulnerability for…

if we are cut, we will all bleed.

These last few months have been some of the most challenging ones I’ve encountered to date.

They’ve tested me more than I’ve ever been tested before.

One year ago I accepted a position and reluctantly left a vacant place beside a familiar team of individuals that I had much success with, but…

that’s the crazy part about life…

Staying in a comfort zone just because it is comfortable eventually gets boring.

The ambitious spirit is one unpredictable beast that, in an instant, thrusts us beyond what we feel is our limits into another realm of living.

Well, as I see it, that’s how it works.

I toyed back and forth with several thoughts:

One was of going backwards.

Another was of moving forward…

Then I thought about doing nothing…

absolutely nothing.

Giving up because I was tired of fighting.

Needless to say, I couldn’t live with myself if I decided to do that so,

I showed up for life again…

yet another morning…

uncertain as to how I would fly on two battered wings.

It was a very sounds sleep the night before…

but still I showed up again…

showed up again for life.

I started writing these memos to God, asking him for guidance and strength and guess what?

I have been given signs that assures me we walk not alone.

I just received one that inspired me to write this piece in my blog.

I’ll keep it to myself, but let’s just say…

I know it was a sign.

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…
