“A Nice Pair of Shoes” – Individuality Introspective by Author G D Grace

My frustrations lie in where I am right now, and in the recovery from all the stupid decisions I’ve made. This marketing sales piece of literary is in alignment with a misunderstanding of managing money and making it. One of the more frustrating things about this intellect I possess, and the blessings I’m afforded in this life lays in the pool I seem to be dog paddling in relentlessly.

To speak and be disregarded and ignored is troublesome, but it doesn’t hit me as hard as it used to. I reached this conclusion; to bother and crumble because of isn’t living, it’s succumbing because of insecurity. Most nerds/intellects/weirdos/outcasts who were picked on throughout high school go on to become the Steve Jobs, the Mark Zukerburgs,  the Bill Gates’ etc…

Being cool really is a state of mind, and to thine own-self be true.

I network with and work around many now. The popular folk usually have their athletic abilities or their physical appearances, but in life only a small few are successful because of those attributes. My heroes have always been the underdogs because they go against the grain and reach insurmountable heights in life.

Allow me, All Mighty, to stay strong in this fight for individuality, and give me the courage to exceed beyond my wildest expectations. Where I’ve been is foreign contrast to where I’ll go. Orlando next week, Australia next year. If we learn anything in life worth anything, it’s to evolve in spite of naysayers and thrive in the light of faith.

Be courageous and innovative, for the only thing that belongs in a box is a nice pair of shoes. ~GD

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…
