“Glitter and Gold” – a personal introspective by Author G D Grace

I truly believe that when we try hard enough, there is nothing that we can’t accomplish.

Author G D Grace 10-23-2012Childhood wasn’t glitter and gold all the time, but there were really a lot of beautiful moments, and those are to be cherished and remembered in the foreground of our memories.

It is so easy to get locked out of life dwelling on bad experiences and by surrounding ourselves with misery, but I firmly feel that walking towards the light and away from darkness makes us spiritually stronger.

You can love, but know that it is also okay to do it from a distance.

There was a time in my life when I had so many controlling people in my life until I thought I would suffocate.

If anyone tells you that they know you better than yourself, know yourself better enough to bounce. ~GD

“Weeping endures for a night, but joy comes in the morning…”

I am thoroughly convinced that an attraction to negativity is an undocumented disease.

I damn near suffocate now, reading or being around posts or people whom seem to have nothing nice to say about anyone.

They talk about others as if they’re possessed or something, and that dark spirit follows them everywhere they go, even into sacred places of worship.

It is a drain being in the company of this type because they have no respect for the opinions of others, except their own.

They loud talk and over talk people during discussions, and are always ready for a verbal or physical altercation.

And don’t let them get tanked up on that fire water…

I respectfully bow out of lives like these; quickly and quietly.
I have been mastering the art of up and out for quite sometime.

Light spirits get weighted down by all that inconsiderate bantering and behavior, we know when to cut out.

(this mornings tirade was inspired by comments on an earlier post I saw promoting the new Destiny’s Child single)

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…
