Has FEAR Put Your Goals in a Full Nelson?

The mind is one of the the most amazingly complex organs that will never fully be explainable. Some things you just can’t solve with logic and history. Some things require no thought. Some things just are.

Fortunately for us we have the option, hundreds of thousands of times a day, to change, re-direct or recreate another option for our reality. It’s unfortunate that many dwell in limbo between reality and imagination, being present in life but not TRULY living.

Fear is just that. Not living. Dwelling. Moping. Blaming. Thinking. Considering. Fear leads to little or no action, only to confirm later that it was simply all in your head.

There are times when you need to add tons of caption to posts and there are times where posts simple speak for themselves. I’m hopeful that the message in this video not only reaches you but teaches you.

“People may be just socially accepting levels of insanity.”


Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

[Hot off the PResses] – Episode 6: ABG | The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl

In the introduction of her latest promotional video, Issa Rae and the production crew behind the ABG quotes, “Television has a very limited scope and range in its depictions of people of color. We want to change that.”

The Press Junkie concurs.

If you haven’t already caught wind of ABG – The Misadventures of the Awkward Black Girl, then you have truly missed out on a treat. Everything that television fabricates, Issa’s character “J” reflects just the opposite, showing the seemingly average side that lies in us all. Everyday situations become windows to our own lives and J and the rest of the cast gives you a dose of laughter and balance.

Here’s a interview with the entire cast + Episode 6: “The Stapler”. Unable to properly deal with her personal frustration in the workplace, J is sent to anger management.

Pure Hilarity: Antoine Dobson’s debut in the “Bed Intruder Song”


Courtesy of  Auto-Tune the News:

After Antoine Dodson, a young hero from Huntsville, AL, saves his sister from an attack, he sings an important message both to his community and to the attacker himself. Evan Gregory then proceeds to play a heartfelt cover of the resulting song.

To see the original footage of Dobson’s original Live at 5 debut, peep below.



The reality of this is not truly funny because this woman did get assaulted in her own home. But seeing as though the rest of the news is stab, kill, war, it’s a little refreshing to see the lighter side of humor in the news. Now, go and wrap your arms around someone and tell them you love ’em! Happy Sunday!
