So, Whose Got Yo Back!?

Well other than God and Jesus, I’d like to think, loved ones.

But its not like that for everyone.

When we sit and think about who really has our back, some people say they Momma, they Daddy, they sister, they brother, the god parent, they Auntie, they Uncle, you get the picture.

But nowadays its really hard to really say who has your back until you really go through something that brings you to your lowest point in life.

Theoretically, blood is suppose to always have your back, but we have all seen that this in most cases is NOT true. Sometimes your blood will be the first if not the second to turn their back on you when you hit that major pickle and sometimes the minor ones too. It just all depends.

Everyone would like to believe that blood has your back. But really its like tossing up a coin and hoping that they will be there for you. Nothing is for certain these days. Its the hard truth of life.

People talk about it all the time, mention it on twitter, comment on it on facebook and post pics on Instagram that “I am not perfect,” “I fail daily,” We as people and human beings know this, but still, with that knowledge, people often fall to the forgetfulness of that truth when someone gets into trouble or is going through really tough times.

People begin to condemn and throw stones, talk bad about that person instead of uplifting that person through the known and unknown trial. People make it a point to just make a man feel lower than what his or her predicament already has him or her in. Its really sad when you think about it.

And then those same people want to come back with that same truth of, “I am not perfect,” “I fail daily.” Talk about contradicting. I see it all the time. So, I know someone else does too.

Knowing who really has your back though is important. There are signs that can let you know, such as the minor signs. You gotta know who really supports you when it is all said and done. At some point in our lives we all have some type of situation where we need help or depend on someone to come through.

Don’t deny this. Think very hard before you disagree with that statement. I’d like to think that those who are reading this now, you were once a baby!!!!!!

Listen to the signs, pay attention to your surroundings. Their are clues, signs and messages that advertise this question on a daily basis. You have a right to know this and don’t dare think its a one way ticket. Whose back do you have!?

I Don’t Believe In X-MAS, I Believe In Christmas!

YES!!!!!!!! There is a difference! A huge difference.

I would be honored to define it for you.

X-MAS is a period of time created by retailers to boost sales around the Christmas Holidays. It is also a word to involve non-believers  who don’t believe in Christmas during this spiritual holiday, to get their consumerism as well. It’s all about money 

CHRISTMAS is a birthday celebration and Holiday for believers in Jesus Christ. 

Businesses have contributed in turning the meaning of Christmas all about money, selling products, moving units to get that top dollar and they have done a great job fooling so many people, even believers in this infiltrated  and substitution term, “X-Mas.”

The word Christmas derived from somewhere, it just wasn’t made up. There is a story behind it. Christmas is way bigger than some big sale at Macy’s, Toys R’Us and Walmart. This is about the birth of Jesus Christ. The greatest gift ever given to mankind. Henceforth, “giving”, not of money and sells and discounts, but salvation and life. It is also about being thankful for love, family, health, strength and all of the little things that people often take for granted.

Wikipedia defines X-Mas as a common abbreviation of Christmas. Then it goes into breaking down the origins and languages from which it came from. Then it goes on to say, verbatim:

“There is a common misconception that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas[3] by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”.”

I find this to be quite funny. Now why would they feel the need to put that down. People this is not a misconception. We as believers, should have the decency to honor God and His son, Jesus Christ to say, write and type the true name of this grand Holiday and Birthday Celebration.

Wikipedia’s statement is another way to cover up and justify themselves in telling people this garbage. They quoted this because they know that “X-Mas” is an attempt to remove the spiritual purpose and meaning from Christmas, it had to be addressed. And I’m willing to bet that an atheist or non-believer wrote that statement.

“X-Mas” should definitely be included in High School and College marketing and business books, because that is all it is, a marketing business and promotional stunt and tool.

I put it on the level of X-Men. As much as I like the comics and the animation series, this is what the meaning of Christmas has been diminished to. As far as honor. Just like X-Men is fiction and it doesn’t exist, so is X-Mas. That crap was clean made up. The same goes for Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. Come on believers, we are better than that.

Everything doesn’t have to be entertainment. There is a time to play and a time not to. Kids will be happier if you just tell them the truth. Like I said, Christmas is way bigger and better and stronger than this so-called term, “X-Mas”

I hear people on Facebook ask often, “Why did they take Prayer out of school?” You know what, prayer wasn’t taken out of school. Some person who had the power, money, position and big time degree said to take it out and everyone followed pursuit. Just because someone says it, it doesn’t mean you have to put action behind it. When I was in school I still prayed. I prayed in my head, much like how the teacher asks you to read in your head not out loud. WE CAN STILL PRAY IN SCHOOL!!!!!

Now it has transcended onto Christmas. Shall I demonstrate, “Why did they take Christ out of Christmas?” You know what, Christ wasn’t taken out of Christmas. Some non-believer who had the power, money, position and big time degree said to take it out and call it “X-Mas” to include non-believers and everyone including believers followed pursuit. They trained everybody and everyone caught on to the concept. It was accepted!

I don’t believe in X-Mas, I believe in Christmas.

People have the right to know the truth. Don’t be fooled by a political term, a marketing term, a retailers term, a business term. That is all “X-Mas” is. Christmas should be honored better than that. Call me by my real name not a fake name. Call it what it is, anything else is disrespectful.

So the word, “Christmas” is long. I just kind of feel since people have the time to write out curse words, derogatory names and any other word we use out of the dictionary, why can’t we do that for “Christmas”, especially since that word, the Holiday does have so much more meaning than most words people use on a regular! Something to think about.

I love Christmas and I understand the meaning of it and the History of it. I’m very passionate about this Holiday and I can see how the spirit of Christmas has just changed over the years and I know that there are many of you who see it or have seen it too. Seeds can be planted in many ways even within a name and how people view these Holidays. Remember what Christmas is about. It is not in the Mall, stores and shops. It is in our hearts, spirit and our lives.

I don’t believe in X-Mas. I don’t believe in it not one bit. I believe in Christmas! I hope each of you have a beautiful, Blessed & safe Christmas! Happy Holidays to you, you and you! #SMILE!

One Day I’ll Introduce Myself to my Mom

I will say “Hello” to her. I will tell her my name. The name of the real idea of me. I will not lie.

I want her to one day know who her daughter is and how she came to be. She has a right to know. She is my Mother.

The person that she knows according to her isn’t really me. Some of it is, but not all. A long time ago I created an image of myself on the right side of my brain.

I loved my identity. I loved what I saw. I told my image that I wanted to be just like her. I looked up to her so much that becoming one with her would allow me to be me but the way I always imagined and dreamed.

Call it an improved version of myself. My Momma doesn’t know this version of myself. But I would like for her to know that me. One day! Right now she is not ready and it is safer to just play my role as the daughter she knows.

Some call this the alter ego. After all I am an all around artist, a Renaissance chick. Others may call it crazy, schizophrenia, touched or “Special”!

Many people may not be familiar with it. But those that create, imagine or dream on a class 5 mutant level, already know where I’m coming from.

I love my Mother. She is a beautiful woman, a Holiness woman. It will be a beautiful day when I introduce myself to her. It will compare much like, but not quite like, being born again.

She may not hold me as she did when I was a baby, but the hug will be genuine.

I already know that some people reading this might for a second think that this other version of me is bad or negative in some way, but I’m not at all.

Have you ever imagined being who you are in another way? Not like someone else, more like someone else and that someone else just so happens to be you. It may be complicated to understand for some, but for those who have an open mind about it, it’s very feasible.

The stories that I will share with my Mom will be grand. It will be like an adventure that she’s reading from a book and after hearing it all she will be in awe and I think she will like that version of me.

I would never get rid of the one she knows though. To shun that version all together would be selfish. That version of me is the strongest connection that she has with that me.

But one day, one day, one day, she will know. Signs around me will let me know. They always do. I will stay forever watchful.

The World Is So GOOD at “REJECTING!”

………………because that is what the world knows the best.

The world has rejecting down to a science.

You’d think that with all that this world has to offer to a person that rejection would be the last action on the list, but the world would rather accept those who pay or sacrifice a major price then accept a man or woman for their genuine talent and that’s it.

Its the ulterior motives, the disclaimers, the what are you going to do for me, the what are you going to give up, the limitations unless…….and if you don’t, well, go kick rocks.

You have to give up something that is valuable and/or precious to you. In some cases, sometimes what is being asked of you is your very soul. This is the price in most cases for not being rejected. What are you willing to do and how far are you willing to go to achieve what you desire most in this world?

SMH. The world knows you, knows me, knows us too well. Now, I’m not saying that in some scenarios this may not be true, but there is always some type of price no matter how big or how small.

It could be in the forms of politics, popularity, money, time, sex (including oral), an intangible, a tangible, signing your life and/or your work away, selling your soul, going against your morals or standards, you get the point.

You see, the world’s goal is to squeeze every ounce of innocence out of you, to see how far you will go, to see how much you can take before you break and then comes the back stabbing or vessels to remind you all that you did to get to where you are, focusing mainly on the negative, the bad and the ugly. Think about some of your favorite actors, artists, entertainers and/or celebrities in general. And if you have followed these big time names/people since they first came out, you can see in most of them if not all of them, the 360 change in who they are from when they first came out on the scene.

The influences and pressures of the world have the ability to manipulate who you are and what you will become if granted the blessings of the world. The world wants to take you and mold you into something else. What that is? Well, it varies with each person.

See, we all came to this world as babies. We were ourselves, but as we lived and grew up in this world and created goals and fought for what we believed in, as we matured and formed attitudes and strong emotions and passions and a love for what we did and what we were good at, the world was there witnessing it all. Taking us through different things, creating obstacles to block us from what was to be ours to begin with. Haters were going toe to toe with us. They talked about us behind our backs. We were not liked for the beautiful gifts we possessed. Yes, the world was jealous of us, ever since we were born.

They saw our gifts and our youth and innocence and because we have it compared to those that don’t have it or at one point had it but now they don’t, the world rejects us. Favoritism, politics, money, power and darkness became the ally of the world. They became one. They loved each other so much and understood they had something. They read each others minds and so therefore they were linked.

They made a pack with each other against those that with their gift and having none of the features of the world’s allies, that getting somewhere would be at the mercy of the gate keeper(s).

Did you know that the World is a living organism? Well, guess what, it is. Think of the World as an actual person, a human being. It has the capabilities that any other human has, but it has something else too. It operates as an entity. It has the strengths of both subjects, but the weakness of an entity. It relies on natural and physical elements and chooses not to feel unless it is of close ties with the its allies.

REJECTION!

That is its first nature, its first love. The World is so quick to reject because its just that easy. The World is going to be aight, its going to sustain, its going to make its money and replenish and grow stronger as those beneath it grow weaker. The World wants you and me to ask it for something so that it has the pleasure to say, “No!”

It makes it feel more like a macho man, like it is in power, its in control. What are you going to do? Some people will actually do nothing. They will shake they’re heads, “Yes,” and go back to the norm. And then you have those who fight to the death to the very end, who find it within themselves that rejection will not be accepted nor will it be the last say to their dreams. What do you do when you get knocked down? Do you stay down or do you get back up and do it again.”

What will rejection do to you?

The World has already preconceived what it will do. It is a brick wall. It won’t knock itself down unless you knock it down. This my friend is about character. What will you do when you face adversity?

LOVE is selfless

20121208-232642.jpg

LOVE is selfless……. ………

So, how long do you have to be selfless?

Well, LOVE is lasting, therefore it is forever, which means selfless is forever.

To put others before yourself is a noble and humbling sacrifice that seeks no reward.

If rewards existed…

In that case it would be LOVE with benefits. If you focus on LOVE, there will always be something greater in store for you. If you focus on the benefits, then you will always fall short or miss out on what LOVE truly has to offer.

Focus on LOVE in its purest form. That’s the only way to go and it is what will last more than a billion plus lifetimes.

My Kids Make Me HAPPY!!!

The truth is, I don’t have any kids, at least not at the moment, but, they show do make me HAPPY!!!

It’s the thought that counts. I love kids. It is my dream to one day have children. I feel that it is a Blessing and I see the value of having a big family.

I come from a big family, so it is an inspiration.

Happy LeXXah Drew!

A Good feel & a Good Look

It will be so cool and unique to see what features, characteristics & personality attributes my kids take from me.

I feel that I have so much to offer to my future kids and I know they are not here yet or have not been activated, but I love them to death. #CHEESE!

And yes, I already have the names picked out. It’s exciting, super exciting.

I pray about them because I don’t just think about the here and now, but my future as well. It means alot to me to think about my next moves down the road.

That includes taking care of myself as best as I can because the health of the child has a lot to do with the health of the mother. Not only that, being in a solid financial position to take care of my kids and provide them with opportunity moreso than what I have now is imperative and high priority on my list. I want to bring my kids into this world in the best situation possible all the way around the board. What parent in their right mind wouldn’t??

If anybody asked me, “What Makes You Happy?” other than God, Jesus, my immediate family, my kids make me happy!!!!!

And the day that it comes, I’ll be even happier.
