Finding Ways Not To Lose Since 1967

When you grow up in a family of eleven kids, you learn that a witty comeback and a quick smile will get you noticed. My mom used to stare at me and wonder how she ever ended up with the square peg in a round hole, but I’ve found my niche several times as a musician, a teacher, a community educator – and now, as a HOPE DEALER, Social Media Strategist, Freelance Writer, Video Producer, and entrepreneur!

I have been and will always be a teacher at heart, and even more so a learner. I’ve fought some hard battles and lost, but I’ve also fought difficult battles and won! What I’ve learned is to choose to engage in the battles that are in my control with experienced wisdom (fighting them all is exhausting!), and that the ones to choose should include a majority that serves the needs of the marginalized and oppressed. You’ll never regret your involvement and investment in those battles because the act of choosing to stand up for another person or group means you’ve already been claimed the victor. 

The synchronizing of hope, home, and health have me on the journey of a lifetime! And I am truly happy to simply live as best I can every day that is given to me.

If you take yourself too seriously, chances are I’ll poke a little fun at you. If you take yourself way too seriously, I’ll be the first to ask why and follow through to help bring you to a place where there’s a little more light, a little less loneliness, and a lot more hope. People who fit into the category of “take themselves way too seriously” are carrying burdens they ought not to be carrying, at least not alone. So if that’s you, start by listening to THIS and then give me a call. I’ve posted the lyrics below. Copy them and put them somewhere you can see them every day. It’s a personal anthem of mine (wink, wink). 🙂

Hallelujah!

Well I just woke up from a dream

So far away

And it’s no accident I landed here

Eyes wide open and seein’ clear

I have come a long long way

I am wiser now

My man Atlas told me

I shouldn’t try to hold his world up

He said, “Boy you got some muscle

That you have never used

All you got to do is go ahead and wake up”

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Aphrodite

Well her suitcase was my burden

For so long

She said, “Boy you got some heart and soul

But that’s not what your love is for

Lay your burden down and we’ll both be stronger”

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

I am stronger now

My man Atlas told me

I shouldn’t try to hold his world up

Said, “Boy you got some muscle

That you have never used

All you got to do is go ahead and wake up”

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world

Don’t you try to hold my world up

Don’t you try to hold my world
