Monday: Memorial Day!

Monday: Memorial Day! Envision a USA without its Constitution, leadership and militia to enforce it. NOT a pretty picture. Now envision a USA with it and one that really lives up to the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" Hmmmm. Eulogize our fallen heroes and sheroes once again. Speak well of them and their efforts. They deserve it today and always!

may una eat, fried chicken and potato salad a-plenty

Tuesday: Revenue Day!

Tuesday just seems to naturally flow to the discussion of revenue. If you have it, the question is how to make it flow to where it needs to go and if you don't have it, how to position yourself to receive and direct it to where it needs to go. Though cash may be considered king by some, don't limit your revenue streams to"Cash Only" Revenue (wealth and riches) goes so much deeper and wider than that. Broaden your perspective. View wealth as the creativity to make riches and view riches as people, places AND things.

Sunday Replace and Restore & Monday Vision Day

Sunday: Replace and Restore Day. First, everything, no matter what it is must have its proper place in your life. Some times the result of weekend resting and mediating often leave our personal spaces looking very lived in. Being mindful to replace and restore allows us to welcome the week with a clean slate ready to ponder the weekly vision for our lives and achieve the goals that come along with it.

Monday: Vision Day. Each of us should have a vision for our lives. Be it as big as launching a new life endeavor or the weekly cleaning out of your car. Monday is a great day to decide what will get your time and talent. Find some time to sit and ponder in your restored space. Letting your powerful mind do its thing. You'll be surprised what it will trigger that really needs your attention.

Friday: Celebration Day!

Friday is Celebration Day! A time to recap, relate and celebrate your Maker and the ones you love! Shower Him and them with the best of you. Strive hard to find good things to say. Let your response be one of affirmation (i.e. say yes more than no.) Sing, dance, and eat the best foods. Drink the sweetest wines. Make your personal spaces sparkle and twinkle with an incredible welcome, emitting oh so delicious smells that elicit smiles of anticipation and the praise and adoration you are worthy of! Good Shabbos everyone! Enjoy!

Whatcha Tinking bout dis week, eh?

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Eleanor Roosevelt"

SELF: I am looking forward to becoming a better me day by day, with a little help from my friends and a whole heap of help from my heavenly father.

REVENUE STREAMS: I got a lot of opportunities before me, the question is which stream to jump in fully and let it take me to the people, places and things that will amount to the best opportunities.

RELATIONSHIPS: This week I will endeavor to strengthen the ropes of my relationship with my boo (husband), my seeds (kids)and the incredible community I call family and friends. All that we do is based on relationships. May we all learn that lesson quickly and enjoy the rewards of building incredible communities.

VISION: Without one the people perish. How can you move forward without knowing where you want to go? It is most important that you become the best visionary for your life and its direction. A life with no vision is like a trip with no destination or map.

PERSONAL SPACES: I love Mediterranean homes! I will one day own a 12,000 square foot one with all the trimmings. It will be well appointed and reflective of who I am and those I love. There will be Geechee artwork, folklore, music and food all around. It will all demonstrate the incredible love I have received and that I now desire to give.

So, once again, whatcha tinking bout dis week, eh?
Oxtail and Rice ya'll!

Execution Day - Swift Obedience is Best!

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.” ~ William A. Foster quote

Swift Obedience to the things you know you need to do is best. No procrastinating. Get it up, get it dressed, get it out and get it done.

Wednesday: Relationship Day & Thursday: Execution Day

Wednesday: Relationship Day. Rewarding relationships are built on everything you do or don't do. The Good, the bad and the very ugly. How you manage them is the truest reflection of who you are and how you regard yourself and others. So, go on, manage them.

Thursday: Execution Day. Today is the culmination of all your weekend musings and your weekly interactions. Today is the day to respond, run errands, return calls, and say yes or no. Have no regrets!

Kill it or bring it back to life,

Tuesday is Revenue Day!

Revenue Stream: A revenue stream is a form of revenue. Revenue streams refer specifically to the individual methods by which money comes into a company. ~ Wikipedia

Take time 2 mediate on your revenue streams today. Determine which ones need some additional attention, there may be a blockage. See in your mind's eye what could be blocking the stream and what is the best way to remove it or keep it clear.

Do a quick mental inventory of the resources that you have stationed to govern those streams and be sure they are the best resources (people, places and things) for maximum return.

May una streams flo clear now fa tru,

Monday is Vision Day

Today on Vision Day a.k.a. Monday we encourage you to ponder your gifts, talents and abilities in a way that speaks to your future endeavors. Start small or go as big as your imagination can take you. Your visionary thoughts for today may only encompass what you want to accomplish by the end of the week and that is good or it they may take you to a place and time in the future wherein you are doing the things that you since God's pleasure on as you do them. You know, the things that make you smile and work your hardest with ease and the joy in knowing that if I never make money from doing this, it will be deemed the hardest work I ever loved.

Of late our visionary thoughts are so vast and varied that we have taken to writing dreamscripts. In them we converse as if we have already accomplished our goals. We speak of the activities, joys, and responsibilities that are birthed out of the manifested expression of our visions. It is one of the most rewarding elements of Vision Day.

Sending your way heaps of mental and emotional health. The kind that equips you to make right decisions and love your yes and your no even when others don't. This healthy posture will result in teaching others how to interact with you in way that shows healthy regard for you and them. Have day filled with futuristic thoughts of a you doing what you love to do and making a phenomenal difference!

Una be good!

Barnes & Noble Featuring Vanessa Brantley Newton

Hi All, Attached are photos of the Livingston Mall Barnes & Noble Teacher's Appreciation Reception that Vanessa presented at on April 15th. Vanessa was one of two presenters. She spoke first about the impact her teachers had on her and she then shared about being a children's book illustrator, Let Freedom Sing and the awesome opportunity afforded her by Blue Apple Books. Needless to say, after her 17 minute presentation the author's table where she was sitting was rushed by teachers anxious to meet her, purchase the book and book her to speak at their schools.
Deirdra, The host and Communication Specialist for the Livingston Barnes & Noble store, announced shortly thereafter that all the copies of Let Freedom Sing had sold out! Yippee!!! All in all we meet some great educators and the second speaker Cynthia Willis was awesome. She is a published children's book author who formerly worked as a text book editor at Scholastic. Have a great day and enjoy the photos.

Fish & Grits Ya'll!
