Imagine This Small Business Plan Ideaūüí°

Making a website that sells lyrics. How would you go about doing that?

This article will tell you how to get those creative juices flowing.

I designed an activity that can help me generate new and better ideas.
The following post will show you just how easy it is to curate original content for your website.

Here is an example that can be easily replicated to fit almost any business.

Lets Get Right In To It Shall We!

I made up a website called Linda’s Lyrics…

My next step was defining it…

What is a “Linda’s lyrics?
What do I want it to Represent?

Linda’s Lyrics, which in spanish is translated into Pretty Lyrics or Beautiful Lyrics….
They are custom-made placards imprinted with a special type of poetry… or lyric.

Linda’s Lyrics are made for anyone!

Your loved one, your girlfriend, boyfriend, mom, your crew, even co-workers, boss, brother, sister or father, student, teacher or whoever you want to say to them or want them to know.

What do they look like?

As we said before, Linda’s Lyrics are custom-made so you get the message imprinted on the surface of your choosing. Canvas, paper, copper, wood, silver, gold, etc. It will be your poetry/lyrics etc.

Whatever you want to tell the people you would give these too. They can be as personal as you want to get or as serious, funny or as far-fetched as you want it to be. Or about any topic you would want your Linda’s Lyric to be about. Whatever you want to say, no holds barred.

Definitely leaving your legacy. Imagine the person you give one of these to, with your gift in hand…

Maybe even close to their chest in a warm embrace…

Perhaps even proudly displaying your Linda’s Lyric on their mantel or between framed photos of family, friends and awards or achievements as a conversation piece?

You will be remembered for your Linda’s Lyric Verse for sure. Writing about how you feel about your life, your world, your love? Even your “bae”, “boo” or “bitch”…

It’s your verse…

Guaranteed to either shock a person its given to, can make you and them proud, make you and them laugh or maybe even cry… Or both!

Its how you felt at the time, imprinted to make Your statement to the world or whoever you want to make that statement to.

When its given, you should feel like it doesn’t matter how long it is because Linda’s Lyrics covered it.

but that averages just one full placard is 12inches long or tall, depending on how you see it.

Linda’s Lyric is a gift-card that contains original poetry because its exactly what you want to say.

However, it’s not poetry it’s a rap lyric or verse.

They are embedded onto preferably a material that can endure harsh environments yet not be appalling to the eye. Materials such as copper or spare wood are great choices but wood may not be the better option because of environmental factors. It may become scarce in the future and we want to make something that could last three lifetimes. Whichever option is cheapest and better for the environment we would consider.

If engraved onto wood or onto gold or silver or whatever a Linda’s Lyric is printed, and once you receive your Linda’s Lyric, you could give it to a family member, friends, Associates or acquaintances. You could give them during Christmas, as a birthday present even a graduation gift.

The best thing about a Linda’s Lyric is you don’t have to come up with the lyric.

The lyrics are developed through a series of questions asked during the application process.

A Linda’s Lyric is a C.E.L.L.

Custom Engraved Long Lyric

It’s two to three versus per gift-card.

Each verse consists of 16 lines.

The person that you’re giving this gift to will have their own rap.

They will have their own personal song that says, “I’ll Remember You”.

A keepsake for them that says “I Care” or “Your One Of A Kind” is not enough.

That fact that you have to have something to say in order to get make an impact in peoples lives surpasses what a person does with their life. If you don’t have anything good to say then don’t say it… Let a Linda’s Lyric say it for you.

The kind of person that would buy such a thing has something to say that they can’t say in normal worlds so putting thoughts and feelings to Written Lyrical Word take the stress out of communication.

How do we come up with custom Lyrics?

A few questions is all it takes.

12 simple questions, that are general in nature and reflect a person’s psychological and emotional state of being.

From that information, a rap song is created.

Questions should be asked in order for that to happen… Personal questions too.

We have plans to expand our services to include the option of a person to write their own lyrics and have them engraved.

However, at thus time, during the development phase hat option is presently not available. Nevertheless, we may consider it a very viable option in the near future.

Customer Experience

Customers sign-up.

Upon registering a series of questions will pop up, like a survey.

On the screen it would ask for general information such as; yourname,your address,telephone number, and who your Linda’s Lyric is for, whether they are male or female, their age, (if know), birthday, etc., you know… the basics!Whether you’remale or female makes no difference.¬†

There will be six (6) difficult or personal questions.

For example; What do you know about such-and-such that you want them to know that you know?

Or What do you know about Cindy? What do you want her to know?

Even What is your pet peeve about bottles what is it that you love about Fred or Susan that you have not been able to tell them. Write it down they say…

You’re going to do more than just write it down… Lest Ye Forget

We will turn it into a rap song…

Three(3)-verses of 16-lines or two(2)-verses with eight(8)-lines. The placard embedded with custom lyrics on platinum, copper, even wood or painted on canvas or even framed and written on gold lined or silver lined paper is special to the receiver.

With a Linda’s Lyric, you really don’t know what you’re going to get… That’s the surprise… But its guaranteed to make a statement.

Writing lyrics out converting feelings, opinions and congratulations into rap songs is a challenge. Especially, when its one individual that those lyrics are meant for.

Therefore, we are not responsible for how the person that you give a Linda’s Lyric to would respond.¬† We only hope these help people to convey their unspoken words or messages to those They Love… Or Hate… Or Love to Hate.

Conclusion


I could go on and on but since this isn’t a reality yet I leave it up to you to decide whether or not it can be.

I’m sure that you would all agree that I put a lot of thought into this.
I pretty much did.

People, just remember that this post is just an idea…
Just something that I’ve thought about doing myself.
Yes… I Am speaking about myself in the duality of person like the Queen Linda We Are.

“He Works Best Who Knows His Trade”

Know Your Trade

Have you ever wonder if you know everything that you’re supposed to know about your trade?¬†

I mean really???

A lot of people seem to think that if they go to college, get a degree in something, that’s all they have to do to be successful at what they’re getting into.¬†

They rarely see that the chance of them becoming uninterested in what they’re studying is high. Or that the skill they’re spending so much time learning about may not be in demand or may become obsolete in the near future… They just want to finish their schooling, get the paper and be done with it.¬†

They forget that many people have degrees yet still cannot find employment in their field of study.

Nevertheless, there are those lucky ones who do and are very happy. 

However, there are also those who don’t. They spend years regretting time wasted and contemplating what to do next?¬†

Rarely do people ask themselves; “Have I learned all that there is to know about my field of study?” Or, “What more can I learn?” Or, ” Is there another option available to me, if not actual similar?”.¬†

No-one, after years of studying a particular field of interest is prone to going back and learning more about that particular interest that they initially began studying… Chances are no.

They most likely would take what knowledge they can then move on to the next interest. Which may or may not be a good idea, It depends.

Do you know your trade like the back of your hand?

The ins and outs?

If asked to explain your trade to someone that knows absolutely nothing about it. Training them and providing enough information to get them started on their way on doing exactly what you do… Can you? Would you?

If you know your job, you can work best of all… If you’re concerned about competition then you obviously don’t know your trade as well as you may think you do.

There may be many that can do the job you can do, but do they know the trade like you? 

Recently, I have noticed a huge amount of spin-offs on my trade of live, recorded and written music reviews.

Those creative individuals work hard to make themselves as unique as possible. Yet will hardly come close to what I’m capable of doing or can hardly keep up with the knowledge that I have obtained with years of combined training and experience.¬†

Each person should know what their capabilities are and should be able to explain to any other person, the methodology involving their trade.

They should be able to relay exactly what they do. How to do it and how to keep doing it.

They should be able to teach it to other individuals simply and efficiently. 

That’s what makes me exceptional at what I do. I am confident enough to know that I am #1 at underground, unsigned and unheard music reviews.

I have an extensive “unproven” background in the music business from since I was a teenager. (Unproven ONLY because of the lack of recent technological advances that I didn’t have access to back in the day or access to the many different and current types of recording equipment that are available to us now that weren’t available to us back then.).

Here is a small list of my talents and skills.

1. I have been transcribing music onto paper since 1984. Preparing music sheets for Copyright©. 

2. I’ve been playing the piano/keyboards for YEARS… As long as I can remember.

3. I can listen to any music piece and play all parts. May take a few listens but I can play the piece.

4. I was one of the very first people to do Live music reviews in 2014 and 2015… Right on Facebook…¬† ¬† (Now look how many people are doing the same thing!) I moved on from that because too many people are doing it now… (Go figure, its time for something else.).

5.I just know my s**t… (When writing music reviews, one must have a grasp of what the artist was thinking while creating the track, (My specialty). Not just listen to the music piece and talk about it…

6. I can tell how the artist was feeling and what motivated them to write the music score by just listening to the lyrics. Also, if the music was created using actual instruments versus being created with digital equipment.

7. I have built up an enormous contact list of popular and experienced music professionals. Professionals that are into commercial advertisement, journalism, performing arts and have been in the business of helping unheard artists get their music out to the public and heard by eager listeners. These Professionals are also in search of new talent and are willing to teach their trade to others as well. My contacts also have extensive track records in the music business also in the production and recording business.

Know Your Worth

The reason why I no longer write music reviews is because I know my worth…¬†

I Can’t do freebies anymore and some people don’t want to pay, are reluctant to pay or can’t afford my editorial services.

Plus… It takes time to review a musical piece. Time is moneyūüíĀ.

You can’t just listen to a recording and just #talk about the artist without discussing the other aspects involved… Like how the artist got to where he or she is right now… Everybody has a story…

Also just like promotion, providing artist links, creating discographies, assembling graphics and general support or business referrals… (Which some people do for themselves but others have no clue on how to do or what looks good or what graphics/video/advertisment fit with the music score, etc.).

I know my trade… That’s what makes me and my services Unique. ūüėä

I’m proud of the work that I have done for companies such as Exposed Vocals and others that have nothing to do with the industry.

My music reviews and work history are exclusive…

My Live music reviews would be unique because of what I know how to do.

I Don’t just stick to one or two genres… I go across the board… I tackle #All types of music genres. No specific kind of music, although I have my favorites.

I read music… I write music… I transcribe music… I create music… I produce… I sing… I dance… I act…

But most of all I share what I know… So that others can benefit… Whether it be benefiting by doing what I do or something else.

I love it when people are motivated and hundreds of people have been motivated by my efforts into becoming professional with my hobbies such as making music or photography.


I have even advised people…

I have created legal documents, such as contracts etc.

Even created a list of interview questions many years ago, (those are the questions that I used to ask artists in general), during exclusive interviews.

I know my trade…ūüĎäūüėé

So do you know your trade? 

Can you teach others what you do?

Are you willing to? 

What 

If you are and you do, then you know your trade well… That makes for a person that does their job very well indeed!¬†

“The way to success does confusing

Consider this…

In a 2011 article in Forbes Magazine, the question

Why is self-promotion so hard for women? Is thoroughly dissected because it is a valid question. Women and men are so very different in so many ways that it is almost impossible for them to be promoted in the same way that men are.

Of Levo ( League ), Managing Editor, Elizabeth Burke, said ” ‚ÄúBeing able to talk about your accomplishments is incrementally important to your career,‚ÄĚ Burke says. ‚ÄúYou must be able to talk about what you are doing well to others ‚Äď it‚Äôs how your boss will know to give you more responsibility or that you deserve that promotion.‚ÄĚ

An important factor in placing difference and standing out in a crowded room or crowded browser. If you can’t make your awesome unique qualities stand out, then you may find it challenging to reach the success levels that you desire to achieve.

New Year, New You

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. With these benefits come the keys to success, which is happiness.

Success is not the key to happiness, however, happiness is the key to success. If you are actually loving what you are doing you will be successful at it.

What are the changes and adjustments that you’re making to ensure your success?

With 2019 well on the way, there are less than 267 days left in 2019Live CountDown to 2020 and just as many opportunities to make those changes.

Imagining yourself without that job is a sure way to appreciate those tasks that you may consider menial or easy. Your ability to do those tasks, your motivation to actively achieve them and do them well.

Furthermore, your attitude while doing them determines those results. Then why aren’t more people just casually, purposefully, and genuinely happy or project happiness more often or just in general, out of habit or practice?

SEASON OF CHANGE

A New Year should equal a New You. Although we have 365 opportunities every year to change, there are those who simply refuse to take advantage of that bonus to make whatever changes they need or feel necessary for those changes to occur, then adjust themselves accordingly.

Not because they worry about things that won’t even matter in a few days, weeks or months but because in life things are rarely perfect when we want them to be.

Nevertheless, there is an opposition to all things. Up-down, left-right, good-bad… The scale is always balanced and people are the only creatures on the planet that have a choice on which side of their own personal scale of balance to choose to be on.

Regardless of how much emphasis you are putting into living that life to its fullest one should never give up on their dreams.

If you’re pushing harder than you did yesterday or last year, you’re working to make your tomorrow a better one. That power to make changes makes the New You.

Regarding the fear of change?

Running away and giving up on your problems doesn’t solve them. Facing and embracing them does. If you want successful outcomes in life, you can park in those tempting parking spaces on the road of life.

You are today, where your thoughts have brought you. Tomorrow, you will be where your thoughts will bring you. Being passionate about your life, taking chances and learning to live without the fear of failing is a

positive life change that will bring out the new you! Passing failure often leads to success!

We are blessed with excellent opportunities to make things better for ourselves every day. There is absolutely no reason why you should not take advantage of those very same opportunities to make things better for ourselves, families, relations and those around us. Making things better for them, as well as our own. As long as we keep trying to make things work.

What you become from these experiences is far more important than what you are going through to get there. What you receive, is influenced by what you become from choosing to change.

Is It Hard To Change?

Yes, of course, it is difficult to change, that’s to be expected. You can”t expect change to occur without the manifestation of a particular action. Sometimes those actions hurt like hell. Nevertheless, It is in having the option, that whenever a new day arrives, that you will be able to try again. That is a tremendous benefit.

What changes have I made so far this year?

When it comes to home and family life, I wrestle daily to be better myself. By being a recently separated grandmother, that lives with three of her adult children. My daily activities include a whole lot of ME TIME. When up until last year, a substantial amount of my time includes taking care of a spouse, (2009 to 2018, no longer the case),  and spent recovering from a six-year span of chronic seizures that occurred as a result of having a 3.5-centimeter meningioma from my brain in October 2005, I suffered from 2006 to 2012 and was considered a liability due to the frequency of seizure activity. Also, no longer a problem.

Imagine this change. Mind you… I have always been kind of sickly, but would never let that sickness, Asthma hinder me in any way. Remember, there have not always been inhalers, but I managed to get by… Always hoping for tomorrow. I never gave up. Now I am here writing to you, whoever you may be. Letting you know that even though the New Year is No Longer new and whether you want it to occur or not, Time, Fate and Destiny will make certain that¬†change will occur.

Not that my kids complain of my caterpillar-like progress, but by that final stage to be compared to that of a beautiful butterfly. It is the results of change that make the difference to you and those around you. I can personally attest to that. That it definitely feels good. Moreover, any of my children, all successful in their own way, btw, would say, “Hush mom, you took care of us, it’s our turn.”¬†

This is a direct result of a positive change. 

Thanks for reading this blog. Please feel free to drop me a line. I always love reading the awesome feedback that you all give. I appreciate you visiting. Please come back soon!

Here’s One Way To Get Your Prayers Answered

Finding a quiet place to pray is the first step of being heard.

We are living in a day and age where many have lost their way they prefer finding their own path or way of just living. It is a rare thing to see one praying in public. Some even prefer to swear or condemn a person or situation rather quickly, before they’d offer to up a quick prayer. It’s like they’d forgotten that they can talk to God.

Some people really don’t know how to pray and they just never get around to learning either. However, it’s true that when the going gets tough, the tough get going or not at all.

Do you know how to pray? Do you know what to pray for? Want to learn? In the following paragraphs, you see why prayer is important. You are responsible for your body just as much as your soul.

By following the steps instructions you will be well on your way to having a very special and close relationship with your Father in Heaven.

I’m not going to talk about religion, but I will talk about faith.

Faith is the belief that something is real when you have not seen it. Nevertheless, you do not have to see God you know He’s real. He does exist… Perhaps He’s a she? Who knows… The Bible and most scripture dating back as far back as you want to go say He is male or a masculine Spirit if you will.

You should think of a prayer to God like He is your Father, He is “the Father of your soul or spirit so you can call Him Heavenly Father or Father God when you address Him. You can chat with Him every day, including the weekends and you don’t even need a phone.

Since God is Spirit, we need to speak with Him Spirit. What does your spirit need? This should be your frame of reference for communicating with Your Father.

Here are a few Godly traits you need to know before ho into this lesson on how to pray.

First of all, God has a name, but like most father’s, would prefer you to refer to Him by his title, Father. Also, like most dad’s, he likes to be complimented on the fine job that he did, keeping us alive and such. Secondly, you gotta be grateful. After all, He didn’t have to let you read this today. You could be elsewhere, but don’t let that stop you from being here. Lastly, he gets jealous when we someone else is credited for His work but loves us to the moon and back just because we bleed and cry. After all, we are His children… No one messes with God’s children, no way!.

Now let’s get right down to it, shall we?

Can be prayed out loud or silently.

“Thank you, Father God. You are Worthy to be Praised, for your mercy endures forever!”

Prayer to Heavenly Father:

Heavenly Father,

When bad times and hard times are suddenly here, notice those that remain, and the ones that disappear, help me show the same mercy you extend me second to second.

Lord… The trials of life determine where I stand tomorrow, so please teach me to understand that I can’t give away my riches if I keep thinking about the hard time I underwent acquiring it, and to be merciful to others When they face difficult times, and to know that our challenges are not sent to destroy us, that they’re sent to promote, increase and strengthen us.

I understand that Life can be very hard sometimes, so show me how to be a little more compassionate to others so it might be all that they need to get by.

Thank you for giving the best things in life that arise out of the toughest situations. Thank you for the strength so I Will Not discard challenges, for it is in the challenge that the fruit lies. Also the courage to never let hard times break me.

Strengthen and prepare me for the adverse circumstances you are going to allow me to experience in order to gain from them. Because If Life didn’t have challenges, it wouldn’t be worth living at all.

I Say These Things In The Name Jesus Christ.

Amen

As stated previously, you really don’t have to be Christian to believe in a higher being that rules over us spiritually. The point is, everyone should believe in something. It gives us an exact measurement of our actual impending mortality.

You begin to realize that life in all its forms is precious. Also would give you a direct line to contact your creator even if your beliefs are dwindling and doubts take over, there is hope.

However, Faith is the ultimate key. If you’re trying to contact someone via a telephone line, you have to wait for them to pick up the line. Sometimes the line might be busy. Sometimes they may not pick up, nevertheless, thanks to technology, there’s always that option to leave a thorough or complete message. This lets the receiver know who is calling and the purpose of that call.

When making “that call”, you have faith that either the person that you’re calling will pick up or you will have the opportunity to leave your message.

Or simply put, you have the choice to leave your message to your Creator by prayer.

The same goes for prayer. It is your unlimited opportunity to speak with your Creator. If Faith is all you need, then, there is more than enough of that to go around. You just need to step up their prayer game.

Try it, and see what happens in your life. I can assure you that your feelings will change if you have any doubts. You will begin to realize that you truly have not been left alone and that there is no cause for fear.

So the next time you pray, try focusing on issues that ” A good parent” would more than happy be willing to supply to their loving child in need because that is what our spirits are… children of a most powerful being in existence.

If you have doubts about getting what you want, you might not deserve it. So make sure that you are sure that the thing you are praying for is worthy of and for you, a child of the Highest God.

People sometimes pray for material goods, like money, instead of asking for riches and glory, ask for peace and contentment. Why? Because the desire for money is a temporal or a human aspect. The prayers that God answers pertain to the spiritual realm. They say that anything is possible for those who trust God. However, in the temporal world, we ask God for strength to endure, because the courage is needed to face day to day trials that we all must go through in this life, and as with every parent, although they love their child, is unable to fully protect them from life, God is the ultimate parental example. He loves us, wants the best for us but cannot interfere or intervene when it comes to temporal things.

Created in His Image

Being created in His image is the blessing. Our human family has the capability to create things. That power is a Godly Nature. We can make things that help to make our lives better. It’s not talent its an inheritance.

Praying for focus and initiative are reasonable requests. God wants us to succeed in this life because this world is our training ground. Our success in this life determines our success in accomplishing or at least attempting to be successful at some part of our short lives.

When we look at the works of God we say it is perfect even though skepticism sets in and we say that some things aren’t as perfect as they should or could be. We must still be optimistic or exercise a certain amount of what some call vanity to say of our own works as perfect. It’s ok to be certain that your own creations are perfect and well done. You too should say of yourself, “This is good.” Viewing your works as good works, (even though we need work), is the level of confidence one must have and encourage in others.

What is the point?

The point is, we are imperfect beings out of sync with our spiritual selves and feel helpless as to spiritual things. So naturally, we focus more on physical things. Which won’t get prayers answered.

Remember, God does care about our state of being but is unable to assist with most requests that are physical in nature or requests that you can get for yourself, (having the ability to create for yourself).

There are a lot more ways to get your prayers answered the first thing you have to remember is to carefully consider,

1. The Importance, (Is this necessary?)

2. Is this Nurturing, (Is this what Father God something that He wants for me?)

3. Spiritual Realm, (Will this prayer increase my spirit?)

4. Your Inheritance, (It is your spirits privilege to be heard.)

I.N.R.I.

To guarantee that your prayer is accepted, make sure that you close your prayer as you would your living loving parent or how you normally close your prayers when you pray.

It Works For Me!

When I pray, I ask for a clear head.

I ask that He clears my steps so that I won’t have many obstacles and make better choices regarding the upkeep of my body.

I ask that He do the same for my children, grandchildren and those who will come after me or future generations and requests of that nature.

Everything else, I can do for myself.

This is how my prayers are continuously answered.

I ask for things that God, my spiritual parent would like me to have in this life-time. Right here, right now…

You can do the same thing!

I challenge you, whatever your beliefs, whether you are a believer or not, to try this method.

Write to me at the email above or leave a comment on how you get your prayers answered!

Why do we close our prayers with Christ’s signature?

The Bad Attitude

The only disability in life is a bad attitude.

People all over can tell when a person has a bad attitude for nothing or when they’re having an over exaggerated attitude about a situation being addressed.

You’ve seen it. A mother and her child gets on a bus. It seems like she has everything under control. But only after few moments you begin to notice who’s really in control.

You begin to offer to help the women but she refuses all offers of help with her out-of-control little demon monster child. Oh, come on…

You know you’ve seen those types of children. Hell-bent on making every waking minute of their caregivers day a re-livable nightmare.

How can a bad attitude be handled?

Well, first of all, When you are faced with a problem, you must adopt an attitude of “you can and will solve it.”

MAINTAINING the right attitude is easier than REGAINING the right attitude. For example, getting frustrated about observing an out of control child on a bus giving their caregiver problems. You may at times think that this person has their hands full and then some or even “what would you do if” kind of scenario, you can’t help but wonder.

Who’s in control, you or that attitude?

Have you heard this before? “If you don’t control your attitude, then your attitude will control you.” A bad attitude is like a flat tire, you won’t be able to move forward unless you change it.

A person can seriously change their future just by changing their attitude. Anything that we face cannot be as important as our attitude toward it.

Our attitude determines our success or failure towards any given task or subject and the way you think about a subject could break you before you can ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the subject because you think you are.

In all and in every case, it’s two things that will define you, your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

Because in life things are rarely perfect. Nevertheless, there is an opposition to all things. Up-down, left-right, good-bad… The scale is always balanced and people are the only creatures on the planet that have a choice on which side to choose.

You control your attitude. If you are negative it is because you have decided to be negative and not because of other people or circumstances. Your attitude is the only thing in life that you do have absolute control over.

You create beauty with your attitude, and it’s your behaviors, your reactions and your actions that determine how much beauty there is to enjoy. It’s all up to you!

Everyone should understand that everything should be considered subjective. A regular person’s circumstances have nothing to do with their past or present events and their perception of those events along with the attitude and manner that they choose to approach it.

When we are on a journey we don’t fear change, we welcome it, we look forward to new and unfamiliar experiences, we are full of optimism because we are filled with the expectation of a wonderful adventure and it’s the perfect attitude to carry with you every day because life too is a journey. ~Anonymous

Unfamiliar Circumstances Shape Attitudes

When we experience unfamiliar circumstances, we Are usually filled with optimism because we expect a positive experience. Having the right attitude, can without a doubt, carry you cheerfully through your journey’s end.

The attitude should be that if you’re being pushed towards something that is thought of as a weakness, then it can turn a perspective weakness into an exceptional strength.

When your knowledge speaks, your wisdom will be listening.

It is your attitude towards life that will determine life’s attitude towards you. Despite many people’s belief to the contrary, life pays no favorites ~ Anonymous

When it comes to the attitude I’m sure that all people have had their fair share of recognizing another person attitude as offensive than having to tolerate a bad one.

Either way, we should be taking negative attitudes that may possibly come to our ways, such as insults or smart quirky or obnoxious verbal taunts that others may hurl at you and make something positive from them.

“Laugh…and the whole world laughs with you. Cry and you’re usually crying alone.

Some Things Can’t Be Measured With Time

Time… We have so much of it, yet we just can’t seem to keep it motionless. Those moments we wish would last forever always end.

Because some things can’t be measured with time. It’s just way too precious to cast away that list of memories. Not just memories… Experiences.

If you look at all the things that mattered the most to you those things that made you smile, the things that meant a lot to you, they all seem so short.

Those moments took up very little of your time. So you tend to cherish them the most. Well, that’s just the way that I see it.

“Time oh give me time…”

That 80’s pop-rock group Culture Club sang it best. Within those awesome lyrics are the rich conscientious man’s forward-thinking thought process. An exciting spirit of positivity.

It has been said countless times that there are 3 things you cannot get back in life:

1. The moment after its missed.

2. The word after it is said.

3. The time after its wasted.

What’s so precious about missed moments? Who wants to be filled with regret?

What’s the point of being careful with our words? Who wants to be filled with regret?

What’s the big deal about time wasted? Who wants to be filled with regret?

Forget about that for a minute...Let’s see what’s happening on the other side of wasted time. The positive constructive side of time wasted… Is there?

Testing, Testing, 1.2.3. Testing…

Ask yourself, “Are you enjoying what if you’re reading?”

It will probably take you about four minutes or less to read this blog post. Will you be patient enough to read it through?

The things written here are simply thoughts. My thoughts…

Are my thoughts interesting enough to intrigue you?

I hope so, then your time was not wasted. Or rather I haven’t wasted your time.

Was what you read gratifying? Did you leave this page with unanswered questions? Are you having more questions than you opened this page with?

Is any of this making sense?

The fact that this article has managed to keep you entertained for the past few moments that you are here, reading… shows that some things can’t be measured with time.

If a person enjoys an activity, there is no amount of time that would be enough time for that person to actually enjoy that activity.

Everything must come to an end, however. Usually, we are quite disappointed when our time is up. How things end is entirely up to us.

But that’s not a problem at all. It’s not like anyone truly knows what happens when our time is up on a realistic level.

We can only speculate, or so we have been told, right?

Because no matter how many people say that they have actually died and come back having the same, if not similar, out-of-body experience then describing certain events sometimes vivid descriptions can regale and appeal to the interests of anyone with an imagination.

Sharing what we can’t actually positively know of another to be in existence if there was actually such a plane of existence place. Hence the case for TIME. It’s the One Constant Thing that No Thing can avoid, delay, stop, take away from or add too. Why heck… TIME is THE RULER OF EXISTENCE.

Time Is The Ruler of Our Existence.

What sort of life experiences of yours do you consider precious to store to memory? Are they never to be forgotten?

Or do you bring those memories up to share with friends, family, and acquaintances as stories or examples of lessons that you have learned along the way? Mainly to those going through a similar ordeal?

If not, probably even going through the same exact thing that you have already gone through? Maybe worse.

Nevertheless, what remains is either you liked it or you didn’t. It doesn’t really matter what it was… That thing you went through… Because It’s over now… There is now something to remember. The point is that nothing is actually a waste of time if you have learned something from it.

Easier Said Than Done.

Having a negative mind about a particular situation will never give you a positive life experience in that situation. It will only darken the memory. Push it farther back to those memories that we choose to forget.

Forgetting negative experiences paves the way for repeating those very same mistakes. Perhaps Not being in the position to be able to help oneself or someone else going through it again or to help another.

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ~Anonymous

Having someone to share your memories, experiences and good ole life-stories with is crucial to being remembered by the way.

You can connect with and have an amazing impact on peoples lives, simply by telling your tale. This is easier said than done…

Some people don’t have time to tell their tales. Or just don’t have anyone that they believe would be the slight bit interested in their stories, experiences or lessons. Nevertheless, they should take every measure to ensure that their stories be told.

Writing it down always helps. If you have internet access, create a blog about it. The objective is to get your lessons out there. Someone is bound to need them and will greatly benefit from the stories about the results of your choices.

You might be thinking, ” Now Why would I wanna share about my boring crazy life?” The reasoning behind documenting and sharing your life experiences should be obvious. If it isn’t then I’ll say again that there may or may not be anyone to share your story with NOW… But Someone will eventually need to know what you know. What’s your story? That is something that can’t be measured with time.

Why not share it?

Is there an option?

When it comes to the time we spend recalling memories and what we do with them, options are few and far in-between.

Opportunities to regale others with those tales are less frequent because the time people¬†could be¬† sharing with others is more than likely being spent viewing some type of device, such as your smartphone, laptop or computer screen. It’s sometimes hard to get someones attention nowadays.

How To Manage Your Past, Present and Future

Many people have trouble with problems that develop from their past bubble up into their present and spilling over into their future.

How can a person manage their past, deal with their present and remain calm, cool and collected about their future?

Some people got this covered because they are well aware of their past, they make sure that they plan for the future, they live for today, and acknowledge that yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come.

People should realize that no matter how dirty their past is their future is still spotless. Another thing that people don’t realize is just because their past didn’t turn out as they wanted, doesn’t mean that their future can’t be better than they’d ever imagined.

They tell us “Do not look back,” because there is nothing back there worth regretting. They tell us “Do not grieve over the past”because it’s gone. They tell us “Do not be troubled about the future,” because simply put, it’s not here yet.

They advise us to “Live in the present” and make it beautiful. So beautiful that it will be worth remembering. Something about the human character.

Your character is far more important than your past or your future. Of course, it’s who you are that matters, not what you’ve done or will do and worrying doesn’t empty your tomorrow of troubles. It empties today of its strength.

The fact that people often tend to panic during their present is no trivial affair. Panic usually precedes worry and if people can control the present circumstances, they wouldn’t be worried about those circumstances growing into a tumultuous affair.

Here’s another issue. After panic mode, people somehow get caught-up living in the past. This is the solution. Just remember that the only thing we should do about what happened in the past is to learn from it.

Yesterday, good and bad, is now a part of your history. It’s as if at the end of the day a page of your life or chapter of the story of your life has ended. Unless you enjoyed that read very much you wouldn’t go back and read it again. You move on, move forward to the next page.

You should be anticipating the beginning of the next page or chapter of your life. Instead of dwelling on the memory of what you just finished reading.

The story of your tomorrow is unknown… Each new sentence or new paragraph of the book of your life is completely unknown. In fact, the following pages if what you’re about to read are blank. There is absolutely nothing written in it.

That’s only because you haven’t gone through that life or that page or that particular part, sentence, page Or chapter yet.

Tomorrow is like a dream. Or like the opposite of Deja Vu¬Ļ. It’s a dream of hope and passion not of repetition and bewilderment. So don’t let the memories of your history worry your present or disrupt the hopes of your future.

If you do, you’ll get old fast. My mother always said, “Getting old is when you become a person with a long past and a short future.” That is the outcome for any person that lives in their past. The following anonymous Letter To The World says it all.

The Past HAS No Power

The past has no power over the present moment. Never has, never will. However, that won’t help people from using it against you. Just know that whatever the circumstance You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around.

This is not a new thing for people to know the cost of everything and the value of nothing or what a thing is worth. Same goes for our lives.

People value different things and they wouldn’t be afraid to hold you to a trivial word or two uttered the day before. Or they won’t be hesitant to find you of some instance that you would like to forget.

Don’t be upset with people and situations in your life because both are powerless without your reaction.

People will never understand those decisions you make unless they have experienced how hard it was to be in your place.

Everything you have been through was preparing you for where you are right now, and where you can be tomorrow. It’s like you want what you can’t have and once you get it you don’t want it anymore.

When it comes to your own past, the people in your life may not give you second chances or may be reluctant to give you a second chance just keep in mind that LIFE always does.

The best things in life are not free

The best thing about the past is that it shows you what not to bring into your future. How can you find the value of your past?

If you remember how much it cost you to obtain your college degree or any finishing diploma, you will be astonished to know that your personal history has a specific value. It is your past that is someone else future. The lessons in your life will be someone else’s lesson. As with all lessons, the impact of retaining the lessons for later use far outweighs the memories of those long forgotten subjects that had no perspective value. Making what you learn a waste of time. Nevertheless, the present is what your rewards will be. Furthermore, the future, in turn, will be your motivation.

Your, past, present and future are the best things in your life. putting value on your entire life. Makes it worth living, regardless of the circumstances.

TOP DEFINITION URBAN DICTIONARY

¬ĻSomething that very few people know the true meaning of. Even though deja vu is French for “already seen”, it actually is used to describe the strange feeling you get when you’re in a situation and feel like you’ve been in the exact same situation before, but really haven’t. Most people think it means the same thing happening twice, which is wrong. Get it, the right¬†people!
Jack: Hrmm.
Bob: What?
Jack: I could have sworn I’ve been here before. But I know I haven’t.
Bob: Heh. Deja vu?
Jack. Yeah. What a strange feeling!

Music Reviews Coming Soon!

Listen to New Music by Linda Dawkins

As most of you know, I have a lot of interests which include writing music reviews and promoting new and upcoming recording artists and their talent.

Not only is writing music reviews but I produce my own music too. I’m a Disc Jockey, or DJ as well. Why? Because music is my first love, blogging is my second love.

NOTE:

CLICK ON A RELATED IMAGE, TO ACCESS MORE GREAT MUSIC!!!

Number One Music

I joined Number One Music during the first quarter of 2018, I uploaded three of my early tracks, (the first one was a beat that I purchased from another producer, (Beatsbylekz Productions ). The other two were creations of my own. I’ll tell you how I made these two songs but for right now. Which have over 1 million views?

I would like to tell you how and why I chose music as my first love and why no matter what I do, I keep making music and sharing music. I always say that Stevie Wonder said it best when he sang in his hit single Jam Master, ” Music is a world within itself, it’s a language we all understand. With an equal opportunity, for all to sing, dance and clap their hands.”

Yes, music is magical and it keeps people going.

My dad loved to sing and dance had his own band, traveled all over, especially to the UK, Spain, and Canada, I think I got half of my ambition from him!

I come from a musical family. Jamaican reggae, blues, and jazz on my father’s side and on my mother’s Guyanese side, Calypso, Soca, rock, soul, and RnB background.

My mom. She sang opera, the daughter of Chief Inspector Clifton Wills, and Maise Blossom. She was a fighter… I mean literally… It was like she knew some type of martial arts. Love her tenacity!

My parents made sure my siblings and I were musically active at home as well as at school. They encouraged us to compete in talent shows and such. Showing us how to be on stage. Whether they were dancing, singing or instrumental recitals. We were in it or we did it.

As time went Circumstances caused me to divert from that role of the entertainment industry to raise a family instead.

30 Year’s later, I have come full circle to realize that if I would have doesn’t even count here. I’m Baaaack! So besides writing, I also make music. I play the piano, I’m not really that good but I Can play anything I hear, a skill most musicians pride themselves with.

With the advancing use of today’s App technology, you don’t have to have any particular skills to make good music. You only need to love what you’re doing to create the perfect groovy beats and sounds to dance to or to rap to. Even to make music videos too.

Anyway, on November 17th, 2018, I started a station Linda Dawkins 1 Radio on Sound Cloud. Where you can listen to all of the music from new artists who have entrusted their music to me, in order to promote their efforts simultaneously.

Linda Dawkins 1 Radio on SoundCloud

Myself included, as you will see when you visit the station. The very first song is mine… Called No Problems after that, it’s a glorious mix of a variety of music. “A world within itself”. Check it out at the link above!

But That wasn’t where I stopped. I began to research other Apps from which I can enjoy the full experience of music making without having access to a studio and studio equipment.

Enter Music Maker Jam MMJ for short. I stumbled across it while browsing my Google Play Store.

I wrote about my early experiences with that app a few weeks ago. I was doing an App review. You can find that here on this blog.

There, I created 20 re-mixes in my first week using the app.

Re-mixing music snippets from several different songs to create something new.
Music created by me using automatic pre-set music. This is the basis of remixing.

“Baby” by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Here’s another one.

The Human Race Game is a game that I have in development, I want to use this as the theme song for leveling. Up. However, I am open to whatever… I didn’t stop there.

The Human Race Game- Boss Fight By Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Then there’s this one too, one of my favorites and voted favorite out of my collections, from my Jam Community peers. I know it’s favorite because of the number of comments that I received called Day Dream.

Day Dream is a megamix, my first attempt at mixing seven songs into one, to create this new song.

Day Dream By Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

There are 17 more songs all of them mixes or remixes. And I’m not done yet…

My reasons for producing music and promoting music were explained in the beginning. The purpose of this article is to inform my readers, that I will be writing music reviews again.

I will also be making music of my own.

Here is the complete list of musical projects that I have created within the Jam Community Platform and Playground.

Mavera Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Bullet-Solid Maybe Squad by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Good Vibes Only Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Confused by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

As with most music that remixes are made from I must state that I do not own the rights to the music that I created on the Jam Community forum. The only stipulation is if the music that I used is Royalty Free. Then that’s a different story and I haven’t bought any Royalty Free music as of yet.

Here are some more!

Deep Talk Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Mega Remix SMS by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

When I See You by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Sorry Not Sorry Getting Perspective by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Solid Maybe Squad Mega Mix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Let Go Remix Solid Maybe Squad by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Solid Maybe Squad White Boi Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

You Quit First by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

This one was my third attempt at combining the genres dubstep and trance. I think it came out pretty good! music.

The following track was the first time remixing various sounds and experimenting with the Music Maker Jam App its many options and support from its awesome talented member producers and aspiring DJ’s and future stars of the recording industry. Myself included.

Jam X RL GRIME One Remix 1 by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

DAB BLZZ by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

This one was my very first try at using the MMJ app last October I called DAB BLZZ, Its the anagram of the names of each of my grandchildren’s first initials. Jaleeyah, Kenji, Davion, Alejandra, Byron, Bremont, Leon, Zai’er and Zaylee.

Yes, grandchildren…

That just goes to show that it’s not only young folks that enjoy creating awesome content, but old folks can do it too!

I’m just hoping that they, (my grandbabies), will grow up to want to carry granny’s mantel and have a desire to go the distance like I’m going too.

How I Began Writing Professional Music Reviews

In 2015, I was approached on Twitter by Randy Morano, (founder), who was in need of a writer that can review hip-hop and rap music and that lived in the United States.

I was looking for a legitimate online writing gig and I got what I was looking for. He sent me an example, advised me to write no less than 300 words and it was great from there. I was given many assignments. Some single tracks, some albums and was getting paid $5 per review.

That was great! The reviews were coming in as fast as I completed them. At first, I was writing several hundred words per review, depending on the contents of the song and how much research I had to do in order to gather as much information on the artist that I can.

It was great to work But then suddenly the reviews slowed down and I wasn’t getting as many as I expected. Probably because I began to get lazy. Writing exactly 300 words in Some reviews and in others, a lot more.

Bottom line, I wasn’t consistent with my work ethics and made lots of typographical errors. It’s alright though because I have written a lot of reviews, so many that Although I am presently not physically writing for Exposed Vocals. I have done plenty of work in which I am still listed as a CEO of MiGorda Entertainment Editorial Services for a company that I am still in the process of developing. But I need writers and money to pay them with.

Getting Tripped Up From Obstacles Lately?

Never let any hurdles big or small in life trip you up and stop you from achieving your goals in life.

Getting tripped up from obstacles lately? Well, this is a famous quote that I recently came across. Decided this seems like an appropriate topic to cover these days. We are living in a troublesome era and it’s becoming more and more difficult to discern whether or not its safe to do anything these days. Even going outside seems to be precarious.

The fact of the matter is that Sometimes we feel like we want to give up, but deep inside, we should be positively certain that we are all just warming up. Gearing up for what’s ahead.

The Struggle is Real

We may experience life changes and major challenges even from the worst case scenario ever. But we should never be too afraid of fighting for what’s right for you and what’s for the better. What Trips people up in their day-to-day struggle is they Don’t work until they get it right. What they should be doing is Working until they can’t get it wrong.

People need to realize that It’s not important to achieve everything at first try or at one go. However, it’s extremely important to make positive progress in reasonable time. The timing is critical… But don’t let That trip you up.

Never quit. If you stumble to get back up. What happened yesterday no longer matters. Today’s another day to get back on track and move closer to your dreams and goals. You can do it!

We hear our close companions encourage us in our journey to fulfill our hopes and dreams yet time and again something seems to knock us off our game. You have a choice! You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face. A failure is not always necessarily a mistake, it may simply be the best action that one can do at that circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying or giving up. If you’re concerned about limits and limitations? Don’t be discouraged about limits, they are just a state of mind. A person can always push themselves to do better, no matter what the cost might be. Keep going at it and you will succeed. Keep in mind that there are pleasant ways to get around unpleasant obstacles.

Just In Case You’re Still Wondering Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. Don’t let the thoughts of failure stop you from trying, even when you fail, it’s not enough to give up. The light bulb itself finally found success after so many trials. The question isn’t who’s going to let you; it’s who’s going to stop you. In life, we will never know what kind of result we will get until we try our very best, and see it through, whatever it is until the end. If it’s good work you’re doing, or If you’re doing good work, don’t stop keep working.

Experiencing negative situations, like trip-ups and negative people along the way? Don’t worry, no matter what others say or how much they discourage you. Keep trying.

Remember that winners lose so much more often than losers. So if you keep losing but you’re still trying you’re still on the right track! If you fall, rise back up, shake it off dust yourself off and try again. Never give up, and never stop trying to achieve the goals and dreams that you know you deserve. My Lessons Learned “I have failed countless times and still kept going. It’s because I’ve learned that the more times I fail, the more I will learn. It doesn’t hurt to keep trying and the long-term benefits… Well, just by sticking to the program, regardless of getting tripped up.” ~Linda Dawkins This can be life-transforming. I can honestly say that things have changed in my life for the better. I’ve become wiser in my choices and the lives of those around me, mainly my family, friends, associates, and business partners have been blessed as a result of my persistence. Nevertheless, some people will always prefer to see you down and lower, but use that to motivate yourself into working harder and growing better. Don’t reduce your efforts just because you’re missing the target, nothing great comes simple. Steady your aim and train harder. Then you won’t be getting tripped up by those obstacles that do inevitable that come along our way. What did you think would happen? “Too much that has been given, much shall be required...” What happens after you succeed at whatever you attempted? Well, success is earned, right? After we earn something it becomes our own. However, nothing earned id completely deserved unless it is shared with others. You can have everything in the world but do you deserve it? Some may argue, Of Course, you deserve it, after all, your blood, sweat, and tears went into, that struggle to obtain the little bit you do have… It’s yours. You deserve it. I won’t condemn you, in fact, by all means, enjoy your rewards. There’s just one thing that you should know.

Once you cross those hurdles, it’s not over. There will be more… And more… And more.

Those things that trip you up, will keep pouring right in. But remember this. You don’t have to go through them alone. Teamwork makes the dream work! True words. No man is an island, no man stands alone. How critical are the critics? The most prevalent, most repeated and biggest mistake people make in life is worrying about what everyone else thinks. Nevertheless, their criticism is necessary if you ever truly want to succeed. Getting angry, then alienating yourself and avoiding conflict only makes matters worse and prolongs actual progress that could lead to more successful experiences. Bottom line, evidence shows that educated people change themselves according to their situations, and apparently, experienced people change situations according to them. The inexperienced continue to experience failure or trip-ups. If the inexperienced try, keep trying, they too will have more positive results in whatever they’re faced with. Either way, success is on the horizon. You may not see it right away, but it is coming. Learn from your past, make a plan for your future keep working for it until you get it in your presence. Because today is tomorrows past and yesterdays tomorrow. What can be learned from this? “Least we become as little children…” ~J.C. We have all seen it. Children, of all ages, kind hearts, compassionate, forgiving and strong people. All we need to do is look at their example. For some strange reason, we grown-ups forgot what its like to be a child. We have become hardened by the devastating effects of experience being our teachers and of course, along with experience are those frequent difficult lessons, that sometimes come with their own bumps and bruises from trip-ups. The fact remains that children, get up fast when they trip. The cry when they’re hurt, expressing their feelings, by releasing negative energy, by crying… Something that grown-ups rarely do. Release, let go and start over… That’s what they do. However, children are best consoled with help from someone, for example; A close friend, parent, grandparent, sibling etc. The same goes for us grown-ups. We are strong alone or with the help of others.

Definitive People In A Wishy Washy World

Are you firm in your answers to others? Do you have a definite “Yes” or “No” when called upon during exceptional circumstances? Or are you sometimes, flip-floppy, or wishy-washy or scared when it comes to similar crucial decisions or unusual circumstances?

Being wishy-washy, some-timey or indecisive never gets anybody anyplace fast. But being definite does.

Focused action and continuous efforts are the keys to getting what you really want in life. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either our fortunes or our failures.

You have to be real with yourself before you can be real with anyone else.

Being sincere and true to yourself defines your authenticity. Always be yourself despite what others think. If you’re not selling the real you to people, you’re selling yourself short. People are looking to embrace and welcome an honest person, which you can definitely tell just by their “handshake” which is the first indication of a first impression.

Before you count your friends, make sure you can count on them. Some friends are only around when they want something from you but are never there when you need something from them.

Are you tired of counting on them then getting disappointed? I sure am. I’m sure most are. But how many people actually tell their friends that they don’t appreciate them? How many people are actually tired if the bullshit and disloyal behavior tendencies that their friends omit? I for one have had it up to here with wishy-washy, indecisive people.

Too many people use being scared as an excuse for not trying. You may fail but try again. That’s how you grow. That’s how you do incredible things.

Uncertainty is the basis for confusion. I hope that you realize that if a person cannot decide on a side to choose that they are definitely confused. Who in their right mind will follow a confused person? Or boss. Or leader for that matter. Your either all in or all it type of behavior.

Nevertheless, we must choose our battles.

For instance, deciding what to eat for dinner as a group out for dinner or for a family gathering, is a lot easier to organize and implement than it is to organize and implement an election, (results may vary). Some people will be gracious to have had a meal while others may critique how long it took for the main course to arrive.

In contrast, some may be happy with election results while others are totally disappointed to the point of extreme anger, rage, and violence. Yet, in both cases, the persons at the table cannot choose what portion is given to them, regardless of their selection, whether it be, leg, wing, thigh or breast… You Can’t choose which chicken your portion is coming from. In contrast again. You can select whom you believe would be the better choice to lead a nation, but you Can’t choose if that person will do their job with honor.

Regardless, the people in the country cannot decide whether or not their choice for a leader came from the right background or has the right designs for the country.

If wishy-washy people ruled the world…

What a messed up place we would be in? What are your thoughts on this matter? Do people know it all?

Good Servant, Bad Master

Money makes a good servant. It can help you to do everything that you need to be done. Practically everything that has to be done can be done if you have enough money. Everything that needs to be done can be done with just the right amount of money. Even everything that you could dream about thinking about doing or whatever you want to be done can be done with cash. Can be done better, faster even stronger than it would have been done without it.

In comparison, it can cause a person to entirely become dependant on its use. Spending it to do tasks that sit low on the priority/moral lines of general support. Making money, a bad master.

Money, being a bad master and having less can cause all sorts of questionable problems. Yet some can’t seem to help themselves in a quest to “get as much as they can.” Or “Get Money”.

Having enough can mean the difference between life and death. It can help improve the living conditions of all species if placed in the right place. Such as child support, spousal support, charity.

There are families that suffer from poverty in the most urban of cities, mostly because of mismanagement of what sparsity one has in possession. Of course, they’re angry. Angry that the rich are getting richer and they are among those poor getting poorer, the saga continues… Who speaks for them? No one? Take voting for example. We all expect to be counted right? According to our 1st Amendment rights. The preamble says, “We the people…” Is it possible that it does not include “the poor”?

To aspire for success you must first recognize the possibility of failure.”

Is it possible that The Constitution of the United States of America has failed to protect America?  Law remains long after justice flees. The misuse and mismanagement of money have a direct effect on American society today and its effects can be long-lasting.

Failure to recognize how much a “Good Servant” that one has in money is not only detrimental but avoiding the abuse of said Good Servant can be beneficial and have long-term rewards. The Constitution was created to bring America together. “One nation, under God, Indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.? Is this true?

In contrast, and for the sake of argument, one considers the “Do what thy wilt with thine own rewards, thou hast earned it and thou art worthy. It is thine and thine’ alone ” mentality, and if you are in support of what’s going on in America right now. A possible biblical event is occurring right before our eyes. “No man knows the day, not our.” “He will come as a thief in the night…” Kind of biblical event is what I’m talking about.

As it seems to be the present case in the current regime of Trump, then this is for you. You have officially made money your master. In doing this, you have unknowingly, aligned yourself with “a devil and his forces”.

The bad master mismanages money and encourages discord amongst its subordinates In order to confuse and discourage the poor, taking away the likelihood of hope.

Hope for better days ahead. Hope for the opportunity. Hope for fairness. Hope for respect. Hope for equality. Hope for everything that would make America a better place to live. “ Kill the dream.”

That’s what a Bad master does. Here’s another example. All over the world, not just in America, people are suffering. Why? Because they have made money their master. The fact is, those who have much, want more and those who need more, get less, those who want more, find more somehow.

It’s all in the strength and determination that the individual has. Then how much they are willing to share and who they determine who to share with or If they so choose to share with.

That’s how a monopoly is created. When money is a Good servant, Everyone is happy. Things get done, bridges get built, hunger goes down to a minimum, employment gets higher because the good servant wants people to do more things or needs people to help. Help with what You may ask.

Farming for instance. There is room for farming but only those who are already in the farming industry have monopolized it. Making it nearly impossible to go in that field, operate your own farm, get customers, etc., etc., unless you pretty much own the land you want to farm on. It has to meet specific qualifications, meet rules and regulations that have been put in place to sift out the competition, thus making money a Bad Master.

I could go on with examples but the point is a failure to understand and accept that the misuse of money is rampant. Can be the deciding factor on almost every upsetting fact that is occurring today. Everything that you hear of that is disturbing to the ears, is the result of misuse & mismanagement of money. Every time there is a shadow of a doubt placed on any topic, it is the direct result of someone who misuses money regularly.

If you take a step back, the responsibility should go to the Bad Master or to the authority figure in charge of where money should be spent.

The Existence of American Racism, Bigotry, Discrimination, Prejudice In 2018? Damn, Not Cool All

Opinion

Racism isn’t a new thing.¬†Slavery isn’t new either.¬† Discrimination, bigotry and prejudices are not new either and¬† I don’t know why people are shocked at the terribly¬† rude,¬† vulgar,¬† filled with contention,¬† condescension and disgusting behavior of other people and¬†although they never looked down on or thought less of another person. As though they had no value other than carrying out the orders of someone who thinks they know what’s good for,¬† what they need,¬† and want another person wants or needs.¬†

I’m not sure if that flew over your head or not. I won’t be surprised if it did. Because if you haven’t picked up my drift by now,¬† you will.

I have come to the conclusion that¬† there are some serious problems with some of the present members of the human race especially in America. I say America because,¬† that’s where¬† live¬† and apparently racism,¬† bigotry,¬† discrimination and prejudice does occur in larger numbers than we have previously assumed. There is no way to know how many instances occur in America or elsewhere,¬† because of those unreported and undocumented cases,¬† and those cases that don’t end well for the victims and those cases that have been buried by

No one really knows when, where, or who started it. There have been many discussions and documentaries written and published in popular magazines like National Geographic and on television various movies,¬† series’ and public broadcasts that cover the topics of slavery and racism with so many various conceptual ideas of where and how it began. Some day it easy the Europeans, particularly The Vikings, others say it was people in Egypt and certain Mediterranean areas in and around the African continent.

l Only know that the practice is sickening.The fact that a human being can be demoralized,  dehumanized and considered as property is appalling to say the least and there should be no debating that.

From what I understand,¬† according to the historical remarks made in history,¬† if it was the Vikings,¬† they actually treated their slaves pretty good. If it was the Egyptians, and according to the Bible and other religious documents,¬† “… The burdens of those slaves waxed sore… ” If it was The Europeans, apparently, they took more than a few pages from The Egyptians tactics manual. With an emphasis on waxing sore.

Those methods used to subdue and control were brutal. It only showed how brutal, naturalistic, animatistic and savage the human race can be. If given the opportunity to overpower,  subdue and control another group of individuals.

Yeah, sure some people say that MOST of those brutal techniques were designed by Africans, Egypt is a part of Africa. They also say that Chinese or European persons,  (not necessarily in that order beat their slaves regularly.

While it was common for the Vikings to adopt slaves into their families. Treating them fairly and justly,  sometimes,  passing on title normally destined to biological children. It was a matter of honor and principal,  who was more deserving,  who earned it.

Slaves were given an opportunity to prove their loyalty and were known to happily join the family of the people whose biological family members were,¬† sometimes years before depending on the circumstances, completely slaughtered,¬† beheaded,¬† disemboweled,¬† staked even crucified and burned, ( that’s just the way things were). Because we are bred in war and violence there is no exact way to tell who started it first.¬†

Thing thing that makes human beings the only species on the planet that conducts slavery methods to inflict as much pain and suffering on the ones enslaved only to elevate or make themselves in a position of leader,  owner or master/mistress is monetary gain. 

It’s hard to see where there is profit to be made in the¬†sale¬†of another human being for a price,¬† against the will of the person being brought to this position of slave or servant. Nevertheless, it happen everyday,¬† even today in the form¬† of¬†human trafficking.¬†

What current criminals who conduct human trafficking are definitely aware of, and what they will always encounter is fighters. 

Human beings are Natural fighters, warriors, protectors and defenders but we will flip or sell out each other if and when given a chance or opportunity,¬† without a second thought while considering the benefits of that betrayal. Always considering what price will be paid…

There is Always a price,  or debt.  Anytime,  something as evil as slavery surfaces,  or a possible threat that a country,  village,  city or town has a problem with missing persons,  human trafficking is considered as a possible method determining the disappearance of persons.

These days,  the likelihood of a person getting caught up in human trafficking and modern-day slavery and in this awful world of deception and violence is at a median.

As a side note,  you can Google search how to avoid being a victim of human trafficking and get some really interesting facts,  tips and safety measures that you and your family can take to ensure the safety of your friends and family.

We are opportunistic and unlike other species that enslave other species to do their bidding and carry their burdens,  who after servitude are given mercy by a quick sometimes painless death. Like some  insects that lay their eggs on live hosts,  whose life will end most gruesomely.  Is pacified with venom that numbs whatever discomfort or pain that the subject may inevitably feel during its demise.  When it comes to people,  no such consideration is measured. Compassion does not exist.

What about the so-called “free” slave?

The modern-day employee is the “free-slave”.

A patent… Is a “free-slave”

They wish only to survive in a world where they are hated and any efforts to alleviate any discomfort,  provide assistance, console or protect is discouraged by the overseer.

Over the years, It went from, “You gotta make them learn that no one can help them. “ when the slaves were being forced into servitude.¬† To “They have to realize that things don’t come easy. “ When they were freed as a result of Abraham Lincolns’ Emancipation¬† Proclamation.¬†¬†To “Those people are lazy and on welfare. “ Today,¬† after years of servitude and newly found freedoms.

They are hated with passion by people who have no idea why they hate. Other than that hate was based solely on the pigmentation of ones skin color? Or on their clever abilities. Like on the Box Office The Black Panther with the popular battle cry “Wakanda Forever”

I suppose that it is only natural for some people to get apprehensive about what else the people that they were forcing underfoot were capable of. They are very different by the way.

How ‘Did’ African Slaves Get Captured?¬†

There has been dispute recently about how these slaves were captured. Some say that they were sold by their own people others disagree. I would like to interject a modern suggest,¬† I think that I would like to say,¬† “of course white slave owners may have used African tactics to capture Africans slaves. ” Slavery and racism is a topic that most people avoid altogether anyway.

Not me… My 10ft pole got shorter as I watch current events that are happening right now as we speak. Watching this occur in this country of supposed free men and women. The story that was never told is now unfolding.¬† The Witness of the History rewriting or unravelling itself right before our eyes.

How would they have been able to subdue and control them?

Besides the threats on family members like holding children hostage until the person gives in.  Or starving them or not letting them see loved ones also taken by force. The slave owner usually gets what they want.

Science doesn’t help either. Besides the introduction of diseases, the organization of systematic kidnappings and human trafficking… Just like today. ..

(I could say, “Alas” right here…)

Statistically,¬† they have introduced drugs and every few years its something else more powerful to control those slaves to get them to do what they want…

It seems slavery has taken on new meaning. Like in Human Trafficking. The only Exception is the fact that it is Still forced. Usually forced upon the helpless, the weak and children… Mostly girls and women,¬† some boys. Are forcibly kidnapped¬† or taken from their parents and homes.¬† Blind folded and Taken to places far away.

Sadly,  For the most hideous  and depraved acts performed on a live human being. Presently, there are scores of human trafficking survival stories.

What’s that about drugs and slavery?¬†

Even though there are no particular nationalities specified as victims,  because drugs affect all communities, society  says they are casualties that have and will become entrapped in the designs meant to eradicate,  subdue or control a particular  races. The systematic destruction and attempted genocide continues to occur.

So

Can An Entire Race Be Killed off? 

First let me say that it has been tried… Probably has been proven in the past that attempts have been made to erase entire blood lines of races.

However,¬† you can never kill off an entire race of people. Nature will always find a way. As every parent tells their child,¬† with tears in their eyes,¬† ” You Must Live… ” are usually the last words heard before children are torn from their parents arms.

For African-Americans, I say It will never happen because it is impossible to kill off a Chosen People.

Perhaps, they were meant to bear the burdens of others who cannot do The Heavy Work for themselves… Regardless,¬† they survived and their descendants are now enjoying those freedoms once denied to them so long ago. Nevertheless it seems,¬† that presently, the way our so-called leaders retreat in the face of this horrid crime,¬† that some of our government heads would like for that to happen.

What is slavery? My weird take on how slavery possibly occurred in Africa

The strong help the weak… Simple deduction…Right?¬† Wrong.

Things probably would have went a lot smoother if some European slave owners weren’t so lazy.

I mean look at this…

Imagine, you are a wealthy sugar plantation farmer. Your plantations n deals in sugar processes from sugar cane grown and harvested on your farm.

You want to expand because the economy is getting better,¬† and the population is growing at your settlement. You’re doing well producing sugar cane and cotton,¬† (two pretty awesome commodities),¬† at your plantation.¬† However,¬† cotton production is slow because you can’t pick the flowers fast enough to meet the demands of textile companies overseas.

You know that you need to find a way to maneuver your goods ,  and you need help.

You don’t even have a dock or port to work from. Doing your research,¬† you decide to make arrangements to travel to Africa you hear that you can procure some help,¬† (you’ve also heard that there are lots of trade opportunities and a plethora of services available for you and that its an old country with undiscovered riches a new country filled with idiot savages willing to strike a bargain… Oh and they call you “blue-eyed devil.

So you go to Africa to try to procure Inexpensive help to take back home… You can only imagine what your current help is doing by now. Because you have a little bit of experience and knowledge about who you left in charge when you left. Not sure how production is going,¬† you continue on your way.

Arriving at your destination,¬† you are not received as you expected,¬† according to what you have heard… Just depends on how you made your first impression to be towards a people that has never seen a pale face before.

Perhaps you are welcomed. Perhaps as a welcomed visitor or even like a God.

The Chief of this active, somewhat unbelievably modern tribe of villagers decides to barter, “A Few Good Men” with you as a gesture of good will in a possible lucrative and possibly beneficial deal with the people. Things are looking great.¬† Right?

Wrong.. .

In Africa in those days, a few good men was about 8 to 10 strong men and women that “CAN DO” The work of 5 or 6 average white indentured men or women. You soon realize that you needed more help than that of your initial bargaining.

To most decent people,  this is a no-no. You cannot change up on a deal that has already been struck. 

What would you do after you complete your mission and your business is already doing insufficiently with the help that you obtained?

You are barely meeting demand with your supply and as time goes by,¬† and the population increases,¬† yet again,¬† you are forced to acquire more help. But you cannot afford to pay all of the help that you’re receiving. What are you going to live off of?

In the meanwhile,¬† You’re¬† getting all sorts of Admirers asking you how you built that “wonder,¬† this business and where did you get those dark-skinned workers?¬†

With pride,  you inform them, that you took a trip to Africa and traded with The Chief. Your admirer begs you to go with them to talk with the Chief.

You are both under the impression that after a while,¬† there ate many thousands of workers,¬† ripe for the pickings .¬† Also,¬† with the further impression¬†that you both can just “go there” and get the “same bargain”,¬† after a fouled deal… Guess again…

Guess what’s next?

If you can only imagine?

What’s next is, Your friend has an attitude with the chief, because he can’t get “the same deal” if not better… Then all hell breaks loose. If you haven’t watched Amistaad or Roots, then you should.

Slaver slavery is STILL in full play. It doesn’t matter who started it… Racism is Still in Full play, it doesn’t matter who started it. It just needs to end.

.

We need more tolerance and compassion in the world rather than vice and discord.

Modern Day Slavery includes,¬† human trafficking, unfair wages,¬† a person can even become a slave to their children and families… Living lives that are not what they choose or how they respectively to live, its the same thing.¬†

Unfortunately, nothing has been done to rectify any of the horrendous treatment that people of all races have experienced. We can only make effort not to treat others in this fashion.  We are after all the same underneath our skins,  the only difference is our gender. (Whether male or female). And age does not matter either,  except in the case of human trafficking. Where age plays a crucial role in the  amounts earned by victims. The numbers are astounding.

This is my objective opinion. I do have compassionate for the many hundred millions of people who have gone through the fires of slavery and racism and survived long enough If only to tell the tale.

Today,¬† the term slavery is used loosely, and words like nigger or nigga has several¬† meanings,¬† uses and functions… Go figure? I which only¬† a race of people are allowed to use the word loosely,¬† or a person must be cautious of who they are around¬† ¬†and racism is fat from over. They work hand in hand.
