Learn how to let things go

9 Nov

I did a short video today talking about how to let things go

that happen in your life so I would like to start by telling a story. My mother recently had a break in at her residence and the perpetrators got away with over $4,000 worth of merchandise. This was very up setting to her as the one thing that my mother loves to do is go home and watch her tv. They took that from her…

When I went to my mothers house her spirit was way down and she was in the dumps. My message to her and to you all is that if someone steals “stuff” from you then look at it as a learning experience. I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason. I also look at the “stuff” as physical things that can be repurchased. We as people need to learn

How To Let Things Go

Learn the difference between the things you should worry about and the things you shouldn’t. There are just some things that will always be out of your control, no matter what you do. Learning to accept this and not try to control everything will help ease your stress.

This is my challenge for you today….Think about one thing that has been bothering you or festering in your soul. Think about how much of the day you think about it and the mood that it puts you in. If it is a person ask yourself why you are allowing that person to live rent free in your head. Think about it….Ill give you time…. Now let it go! I promise you that you will feel soooo free when you shake that devil off. When you actually think about it those things that should really be left alone but are allowed to fester in one’s mind is the reason that so many people are depressed.  Here is the video that I shot on

What is your motivating force?

27 Oct

I recently made a video on what I use as my motivating force.

For everybody it is somewhat different. Even if you share a motivating force with someone the reasoning behind it is somewhat different. In my video I talk about my mother. My mother has always been there for me know matter what. I have always been a good son because I saw how decent my mother was and I never wanted to do anything that would make her look or feel bad.

Now being an adult I look at things so much differently because I have to work and appreciate every dollar that I make from my job. I didn’t realize how much my mother had to actually sacrifice for me and my sister to be comfortable. I actually remember my mother going behind my dads back and buying me a pair of $120 Jordans because I wanted them. Of course I was a very good child and my grades was good but what does a 13 year old need with $120 sneakers? My mother had to make sacrifices in order to provide me with those things.

About a year ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was an eye opener for our whole family to really appreciate life and the people that we have in it. Now my mother is in need of my help.

So I use her as my Motivating Force.

So I challenge you today to look inside your self and think about your business or something that is driving you to be who you are. What motives you to continue? If you cannot answer that question then chances are is that you will not be successful in that area.

With me my mother is my #1 motivating force.

I would like to be able to one day pay all of her hospital bills so that she will not have to worry about them any longer. This is what drives me to my success and this is why I would be successful in this business and any other business that I engage in!

Love and Hip-hop Atlanta Season 1 Episode 5

18 Jul

So here we are again! This episode starts off with the fight ending between lil scrappy and Stevie j. Joseline and Erica finally sit down and try to hatch out their differences. The problem came when Joseline accused Erica of sleeping with Stevie j. Lets just say that this didn’t end well. Joseline ended up storming off because Erica is a bit rowdy. Erica has really grown on me because I feel her story is more realistic to me than some of the others.

Lil scrappy was mad at Erica because she “left him for dead” when he was suffering from a asthma attack. I kinda agree with Erica and Buckey Shay on this one because if they are not together then he should not expect her to stop what she is doing to check on him. Maybe they will get back together. Shay is making a trip back to tv land. I actually like shay even from flavor of love she seemed the most real. Mimi seems to be adding to the drama and actually seems like the ringleader if you will. It showed her dropping Stevie js stuff of at a house and them having a confrontation. It just seemed way too scripted to me.

Well this is all I have for now my lunch break is over but it’s been fun reliving the love and hip-hop Atlanta season 1 episode 5 again. I will start blogging about the bad girls club sometime this week and will be introducing a topic of the week soon also. I will try to post the topic of the week on Mondays and some subsequent post throughout the week. Also if you like my posts please hit the like button or share it on your Twitter or Google + page and tell your friends about it. I would also like to hear y’all feedback on how I can make these post better shoot me a comment in the comment section below!


Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Season 1 Episode 4

10 Jul

Its drama time again!! Stevie J and Joseline sure know how to put on a show. In this episode Joseline, or Shenellica Bettencourt as her stripper former name, and Stevie J are really heating things up. Joseline got an abortion but I really dont think that she was pregnant in the first place. I believe that was all a hoax for television and it makes for a great monday night. Next, MiMi is a bit too theatrical for me. I think that this show is really to plug the things that they are doing around town. I did however see the other day that Stevie J and Joseline was seen together.

I hope she was practicing her dance moves because the moves she had on the show was WACK! Now on to Lil Scrappy and his baby mama which name I cannot remember for the life of me Erica. In this segment we see Mama D and Lil Scrappy talking about how Stevie J called Erica a bitch. I think their story line seems to be the realest on the entire screen. Until I see Buckey from flavor of love . Where did Buckey come from? What rock has she been hiding under and why is she trying to come back to the scene.

Ok as we speak the confrontation is happening between Erica, Lil Scrappy, Joseline, and Stevie J. They are adding soo much dramam claiming that Erica slept with Stevie J earlier in life. Now Stevie J and Lil Scrappy is fighting straight Atlanta style. This is the reality TV that we have been waiting for. Joseline is really ride or die for her man like that girl said in an earlier episode! Joseline was falling on the ground and throwing punches and Erica was yelling and screaming “Let me GO!” I can see now that Joseline and Stevie J are going to be the root of all the drama on the show.

When the girls meet up and Erica is pretty funny. She reminds me  of my best friend which is from Atlanta… The last scene was of Joseline and Stevie J talking and Joseline is acting like MiMi now as Stevie J’s main chick. This show packs a lot of drama but you know what I will look at it as my guilty pleasure!

So did you see the show? Lets talk about it, add a comment to the comment section below! Until next time!


True Blood Season 5 Episode 5…kinda

9 Jul

Hi folks! Its time for my true blood season 5 episode 5 blog post! I have been watching true blood since the beginning and they sure know how to capture an audience. I will be blogging this real time so excuse me if I jump from one thing to the next…andddd lets go! Lafayette is trippin for real. He saw that demon he got from Jesus in the mirror and then went all stupid. Oh yea here we go with this Iraq story line again. I guess it will play out later on in the season. We then see a flash back of Sookie and Jason  and their mom and dad but typical true blood style intervened and we saw some blood spewing out of dads neck.

I guess that is Jasons fear watching someone he loves being killed by vampires. Andy sure has been butt naked alot this season I guess they have to let everybody get a shot at being naked. Bill and Eric put a stop to that Sookie/Alceed bang session. But I think Sookie is going coo-coo lol. Now we are back to the strip club Fangtasia. Terra and Pam is here and Terra has a fresh hairdo which actually works for her. I got so tired of her F’ed up hair season 1-4 now its time for her to be all glammed up. We find out here that a female from the authority is actually the one who released Russel. True Blood is making it seem like it was Nora but I believe that it is someone else. I finally figured out what was going on with this Iraq story line. Terra and Jessica is going to be in an epic battle over hoyte. Ok Ok I have to pause this blog for a sec…so I was just getting into the episode and It just stopped.

This episode just stopped in its tracks about 10 minutes early tonight and they showed a sneak preview of next weeks episode with some commentary from the cast. I hope they do not make a habit of this because 10 minutes is a long time to cut from each episode. I did like the commentary but it seems like I was left lacking and was a bit disappointed…Oh well I guess we will have to wait until next week so see what happends! Thanks for reading guys and gals…So what did you think about the episode ending so early? Send me a comment below!



Summer Heat!

7 Jul

So as many of you know summer is here…Summer to me is a steaming pit of hell a wonderful time to get to spend time with your family. While I would like to spend hours upon hours outside it is just entirely too hot for me to go out. I tell my friends all the time that I am allergic to the sun…which I very well might be. Lets look at the symptoms:

  • When I go outside I immediately run to my car shut the door and crank the air on high cool
  • I on crack my window for a second and that is only when I have to hand my money to a cashier in the drive thru
  • When I get to my destination I sit in the car to suck up all the cold air collect my thoughts
  • Once I finally get to my house I run in, take a shower, and crash down as if I had given a pint of blood

And this to me proves that I am allergic to the sun. Over the course of two weeks we have had consistent record highs which went as high as 110! It was so hot outside that it felt like a sauna (minus the hot guys and gals with nothing but white towels on lol). I told myself that I would no longer expose myself to this extreme hell weather. I have turned a new leaf and I vow to stay in doors until the UV rays are down…after today.

Today I am going to do a bit of shopping and that will require me to actually go outside….damn. When I get back home I will report on my findings should I have any but in the mean time Im gonna enjoy the coolness of my house for a little while. So what do yall think about this heat wave?


Power Outages on the Fourth of July

4 Jul

First off I would like to say Happy Independence day (Fourth of July) all! But not back to the issue at hand…on my glorious day off I was a little late reading my morning news. I ran across a story that was talking about disgruntled customers that had lost their electricity during the storms and heat wave last week and I had to chime in…

Storms have always been a devastating event to me and historically. Last year we had a storm here in Chattanooga and it knocked my power out for a week and a half. The year before that we had a killer snow storm and my power was out for nearly two weeks. No my next statement may make you feel some type of way but I will explain my reasoning….STOP BLAMING THE ELECTRIC POWER COMPANY WORKERS!

I do feel sorry for the people that have to go days without power but like me you should just suck it up. I am an electrician and I know what it is like to repair power lines and install power pole. It is a very meticulous process that is extremely dangerous. I think that many people do not realize this when they go on their rants about the workers and should focus more on the power companies themselves. During our power outages I had to work 20 hour days to help our local power company (EPB) to restore power to all of these neighborhoods mean while I didn’t have any power at my house.

All I am trying to do is give and insight to the inside. I know how hard the workers work to restore power and it is not just as easy as flipping a switch to turn the power on. These men and women risk their lives to restore the power that you hold so dear to your heart but you rarely hear about those men and women being recognized. I understand that the paycheck at the end of the week is their prize but I received a lot of backlash during this time because I was working for EPB to restore power.

I think that people that are without power should do what I did…take this time to enjoy the simple things in life…your family and friends. Sit down and read that book you have been wanting to read. Take a trip to go see that friend or family member that you have been wanting to see. The more time you spend doing things will equal to less time worrying and wasting this precious time we have on earth.

Have a fun a safe holiday folks.
