Happy 2K19

Happy New Year!!!

Do whatever you need to do to make YOUR life better for YOU! Don’t allow anyone’s complaints about resolutions, affirmations or whatever else you decide to share stop YOU from setting/achieving those goals.

One of the keys to my success is:
I’m upfront about what I want from life and others. I let people know what I need in order for _____ to work for ME.
No one is going to take care of you or your business better than YOU.
Once you’ve made the decision to be a better person to YOURSELF, you will attract the people who are supposed to be around you.
Why? Because they’re on the same path as you.

Those who want better for themselves also want better for others. Those who want better for themselves seek out those who have positive vibes only. Like attracts like…

Have an AMAZING 2K19!!!

My Disabled Instagram Page

Copy of WHY I DISABLED MY IG PODCAST COVER

I have been frustrated with Instagram for quite sometime. From the followers who follow to unfollow, the ghost followers, and all of the people in between. I felt like I was running in circles, posting and uploading, day in and day out.

I was glued to IG for more than one reason: work, clients and just pure entertainment. One day I had enough and I knew that temporarily disabling my Instagram account was the answer.

I had deadlines to meet, creativity to spark and sacrifices to make in order to stay on my path to success.

I recorded this podcast immediately after temporarily disabling my account. Listen and comment below if you can relate, if you can’t relate and tell me some of the things that you’ve given up in order to become successful.

HOW I CELEBRATED JUNETEENTH

What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.  Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years. Often told is the story of a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news of freedom. Another, is that the news was deliberately withheld by the enslavers to maintain the labor force on the plantations. And still another, is that federal troops actually waited for the slave owners to reap the benefits of one last cotton harvest before going to Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation. All of which, or neither of these version could be true. Certainly, for some, President Lincoln’s authority over the rebellious states was in question   For whatever the reasons, conditions in Texas remained status quo well beyond what was statutory.

Juneteenth in Modern Times

Today, Juneteenth is enjoying a phenomenal growth rate within communities and organizations throughout the country. Institutions such as the Smithsonian, the Henry Ford Museum and others have begun sponsoring Juneteenth-centered activities. In recent years, a number of local and national Juneteenth organizations have arisen to take their place along side older organizations – all with the mission to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture.

Juneteenth today, celebrates African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. As it takes on a more national, symbolic and even global perspective, the events of 1865 in Texas are not forgotten, for all of the roots tie back to this fertile soil from which a national day of pride is growing.

The future of Juneteenth looks bright as the number of cities and states creating Juneteenth committees continues to increase. Respect and appreciation for all of our differences grow out of exposure and working together. Getting involved and supporting Juneteenth celebrations creates new bonds of friendship and understanding among us. This indeed, brightens our future – and that is the Spirit of Juneteenth.
