How to Stay Motivated — MakeItUltra™

As I browsed through the Reader I came across this lovely inspirational post written by “MakeItUltra,” and I am so very glad that I did. I found this post makes perfect sense, for as individuals who strive for a more fulfilling life, we set reasonable goals for ourselves but often do not set reasonable time periods in which to accomplish them.  (Reason being is that it is hard to filter in things that can happen or may need our immediate attention).

This article reminds us that life happens and that it is ok to prioritize, taking care of those things that need our immediate attention first, and going back to the goal we’ve set for ourselves at a later time.

The message I received from reading this post is that as long as we take steps towards what we want to accomplish, we should be proud and reward ourselves for those steps taken toward achieving our set goal.  Remembering to keep our eyes on the prize while remembering that, “Rome was not built in a day,” and to keep taking the necessary steps, even baby ones, will, in the end, lead us to become successful in achieving that what we had set out to achieve.

Thanks “MakeItUltra,” for the reminder! LP

Popping in to say Hello…

Hello!

Yes, it has been awhile and I am slowly making my way back …both here and fictionally.   Feels good to be back!

Just recently I was looking at a 4 yr memory on FaceBook which was a copy of my first and only published book.  Which got me thinking that it is time to start writing again, and stop procrastinating.

Of course, now I have to be sure to complete the project I began months ago and be sure to make this project much bigger and better than my last project 4 years ago.  Can you say, “New Year’s Resolution?”  What’s yours by the way?

The Bigot’z View of Black Livez Matter

Thanks, Moorbey’z Blog for setting the record straight. I for one do not understand how some ppl can be so very literal as opposed to seeing the big picture. We are not all criminals and here’s a news flash: Even Criminals have rights!

Moorbey'z Blog

Black Lives Matter is comprised of a group of people who are tired of Black people being brutalized and killed by police. They organize to protest this treatment by exercising their first amendment right; freedom of assembly. Anyone who has a problem with that is mentally twisted.

The name “Black Lives Matter,” does not exclude or detract from other lives, it simply refers to the Black people who are the victims of police killings. Common sense says that all lives matter, people of every race, but Black ones in particular are being targeted by police. Anyone who cannot deduce this logic is intellectually slow-witted.

Anytime someone – mainly of the white persuasion – interprets Black Lives Matter and their purpose as negative, threatening, or menacing, they are basically allowing their racism to shine through. In all honesty, they cannot understand why Black people will not simply stand there and take…
