My Mother’s Spirit

I don’t know how she does it, but she does. Her spirit just makes beautiful music no matter what. It could be a bad storm, A blizzard, an earthquake, a hurricane and still her spirit remains as joyful and pleasant.

No matter what’s going on around her, good or bad, positive or negative. It’s gotta be a gift from the most high. I just have to say that I admire it greatly.

I think I have a little bit of it because I am her daughter, but I don’t believe I received all of it. It is definitely her gift though. A persons energy, vibe, sincerity, love and beauty, all deriving from the inside.

It was in there all along. From the utterance of wisdom to the teachings of the value of upholding your standards. For my mother it’s about channeling her spirit to uplift and brighten up the spirit, morale and confidence of others.

It’s a beautiful gift indeed. One that many, I think would not mind having. To show beauty and love to others and bring out the beauty and love in others. That is what we need more of. I am honored that this is the type of spirit that lives in my Mother. I am truly obliged.

But it won’t give unless you CONTINUE 2 Be LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They gone keep ignoring you.

They gone keep downplaying what you do.

It can be for all kinds of reasons……..

It can be for this, that and the other.

Reinvent yourself in every quarter of the seasons.

Let your work speak volumes, so that you can speak less.

Remember What You Wrote……….

……..So that many years from now you can remember how you thought, what you thought and how you grew.

It’s a great reference for self-evaluation.

I look at things that I’ve written in the past and it just amazes me to see how I was thinking and the ideas that came across my mind. It’s just crazy thinking about it.

The cool thing about it is, when I read past writings or stories or blogs, I can feel that exact moment and feeling that I felt when I wrote it. The atmosphere around my mind just comforts my mindset and I sit there and laugh or smile. Its like I’m sitting there watching myself from days ago or years ago.

Remembering what you wrote can allow you to remember not only who you were then, but who you want to be. Sometimes the moments of the past can do that. We as people go through transformations daily. We are forever and always reconstructing our identity because believe it or not, we are constantly changing.

The goal in life is to get better, wouldn’t you say?

Remembering what you wrote can help you understand the thought process of not only what you had, but the thought process of your own child. You can relate at a more personable level to remind you that you were once a child. At one point in time you thought like this and did this or you went through this and thought this way.

In those moments when they come to be, you don’t have to contradict yourself in teaching or disciplining in your child. You don’t have to condemn them for actions, thoughts and growing pains that they have because you as the parent went through it yourself.

History repeats itself and so you can witness similar mistakes and/or tendencies and still you can laugh because you know that, that was you at one point. I know not everyone has a child or children, but it is a unique analogy that demonstrates the value and purpose of remembering what you wrote.

It is much like practicing what you preach, but not all that you have written is about teaching. The ideas and concepts that you come up with or emotions that you had in a particular situation or a trial that you went through and you learned from it.

THIS IS YOUR LIFE.

Remember what you wrote not just for your self venting, motivation, encouragement and reinventing purposes, but remember what you wrote to help you help understand someone else and not according to you, but for them. Scenarios will never be exactly the same, but your lyrics, your writings, your poems, your short stories, your memoirs, your persuasion pieces, your diaries, your blog entries, your books, your songs and your side notes are references to not only your life, but a life and lives to be.

Think of it as grooming and molding. Remember what you wrote. Go back to the beginnings of your chapters. There will be pain, sorrow, happiness, joy, excitement, laughter and many other emotions, but it is your testimony of how far you have come. You went through and you came out. You created something and it was beautiful. You learned something and you taught it to someone else who needed to hear it and read it. You were down about something, but you used those words of yours to motivate and uplift morale. And it all came from what you wrote.

ALWAYS REMEMBER MY FRIEND.

Professional Phone Photographer “ALL DAY!!!”

Professional Phone Photography at its best! LeXXah Drew It!

Yes, I consider myself to be a professional when it comes to taking pics of myself with my phone. There is a science to it and I’m an artist. Alot of people downplay the art and clown people about it, well, let me say it this way, people clown people who don’t know how to do it right!

Ok, that sounds a whole lot better.

I got the hair in motion going on. Professional Phone Photgrapher at its best!

I could literally do it all day and for me its making up for lost time because I feel like I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures of myself when I was little. When I manage to have my kids, it will be nice to show them pics of they Momma when she was young and lookin’ fiyah!!!!!!!!!! Lol.

I Make this thing look good!

Don’t worry, I don’t let it go to my head, but I want my kids to see that I had it going on and hopefully when they get older they’ll still see that I have it  going on.

Poster Design after a Professional Phone Photoshoot!

Aside from that, its fun just to capture those moments. Moments that you will never see again. You can call it sentimental or memorable or whatever, but I have a whole lot of them in my archives.

I go Rogue on this one!

Between taking pics and designing them afterwards, being the graphic designer that I am, its another way to explore my creativity. I use them to design posters, banners, flyers, business cards and anything promotional.

Its more than just a hobby. I’m cold at my profession! Yes, you heard me right, “PROFESSION!”

An Expressive Artistic Passion. Its more than just a hobby!

I’m being quite serious about that. Most people would probably laugh, but I’ve actually spent years to perfect my craft. And think of it this way, you have professional drug dealers, you have professional eaters, you have professional video gamers whether its PS3, XBox or Wii, well………….. I am a professional phone photographer.

I will never see this moment again, it is gone forever

I hope that aided you in understanding where I’m coming from. And if you still have problems swallowing the concept, think of it this way, think of all the sports created that just don’t make a whole lot of sense. You know the sports I’m talking about. You find yourself asking, how in the world did this become a sport? How is it even considered a sport?

Water polo!!!?? Derived from dodgeball, who would of thunk it.

The sporty look is and shall always be my look!

But anyway, the goal is not to rant or convince you. The goal is to show off my stellar skills. I hope you enjoy. This profession can be adopted by anyone if they put their mind into it.

One of many banners I created from my professional phone photography. Its called artistic expression.
