A Brand New Kinda Me


New Year Happy! We have crossed the bridge from 2015 and into (#The16) as
I affectionately call this year! I am glad to be here in the land of the living as I saw so many transition from life to death last year. Bring on a new year and some positive living!

Well it is a new year and it brings the pressure of people struggling to make and not break resolutions. You know the drill of classics: lose weight/diet, go to the gym/workout, be more healthy/eat right, save money/stay on budget, quit smoking/get a patch, quit drinking/find substitutes, get organized/remove clutter and the list goes on and on! Many people find themselves “resolutions cycle” working hard but going nowhere fast or going to extremes to change habits only to fall short. Resolving to change should be gradual process to help you sustain the change.

In May of 2014, I started on a journey with my hair? See my stylist left town due to family issues. I was out sorts, my stylist was like family and took pride in using my crown as a show piece. My hair styles were always conversation pieces. I was able to maintain my style until July, but not ready for a new stylist. I just hopes she would return and get my mane in order.

In July, I moved from weaves to wigs. I had no idea of the big business of wigs. There are millions of styles, colors, lengths and such. What looks good on a wig head may do everything or nothing for you. It is work, until you find works for you. My biggest dilemma was trying to find a wig like the last look my stylist had hooked me up with. I never could find the Oprah curl pattern…

As I wore the wigs as a cover, I let the perm and chemicals grow out of my hair. What a process? It had been more years than I could recall for me to not have “creamy crack” perm, in my hair making the kinky curls straight. The transition back made me learn about natural hair and how to care for it. Having a bestie that is the epitome of a “Natural girl” helped me appreciate my hair.

I would wash, braid, or twist my hair and then cap my hair before putting on my wig to go out. Many would ask why be a “wiggy”, as they missed those cute styles I always rocked. The genius of my stylist was gone and I was finding my new wiggy styles to compensate.

On January 1, 2016 I decided the wig days had come to a close and I donned my hair in twists style for an annual New Years day gathering. There was much conversation about the new do! I had now fully joined #teamnatural. It is A Brand New Kinda Me… and I love it!  So stay with me and let’s where this affair goes…

YoTrip Presents: Sometimes It Is Not Meant To Be 082193


Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where...

Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, no noise or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all these things and still be calm in your heart. (Photo credit: deeplifequotes)

Sometimes It Is Not Meant To Be

Twenty years have come and gone
What started out great, did not last that long
Sometimes it is not meant to be
We do not hold, know, or can see beyond now
Our time is present, and we have hope for our future
Sometimes it is not meant to be
All the plans made, they fizzle and fade…away
You look back and you wonder…Why?
Sometimes it is not meant to be
How did we go from always and forever
To this cannot last past our heart-filled dreams
Sometimes it is not meant to be
As the days turn to weeks,  and then turn into months and  finally years
The memory of what was, merely dims out slowly, like a flickering flame
Sometimes it is not meant to be
Then you look around and twenty years have passed and you wonder
About the should a’s and the would a’s of your life
Sometimes it is not meant to be
Yet you cannot grab back what has faded away, the moments, the memory came and served their purpose
The assignment was complete and you move on
Sometimes it is not meant to be
You look back at the path and thank God for the journey
Where you came from is a stepping stone to where you are going
Sometimes it is not meant to be
Then the light guides you to the revelation that
Sometimes It Is Not Meant To Be…FOREVER!

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 3/14/13- An Inventor Beyond Her Time Bessie Blount (Vol.3,Iss.1)


“A black woman can invent something for the benefit of humankind” – Bessie Blount  

Bessie Blount, was a physical therapist who worked with soldiers injured in W.W.II. Bessie Blount’s war service inspired her to patent a device, in 1951, that allowed amputees to feed themselves.

The electrical device allowed a tube to deliver one mouthful of food at a time to a patient in a wheelchair or in a bed whenever he or she bit down on the tube. She later invented a portable receptacle support that was a simpler and smaller version of the same, designed to be worn around a patient’s neck. http://inventors.about.com/od/bstartinventors/a/Bessie_Blount.htm

Bessie Blunt could not get all of her inventions patented with ease yet she was not deterred, but lived and worked with determination. The French government saw the need and usefulness of her inventions and shared them with the world.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for 2/21/13-A True Educator Lucy Craft Laney(Vol.2, Iss.3)


A True Educator Lucy Craft Laney

Miss Lucy Craft Laney has gone down in history as one of the state of Georgia‘s most influential educational leaders. As a child of Georgia she is in league with other outstanding black hero’s from Georgia such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Civil Rights Leader and Dr. Henry McNeil Turner, the first black chaplain in the U.S. Army and the first black in the Georgia Legislature. Miss Laney’s contributions in the area of education are a tribute to perseverance, dedication and unwavering faith. http://www.lucycraftlaneymuseum.com/about_laney.htm

Lucy Craft Laney

She was born on April 13, 1854, one of ten children, to Louisa and David Laney during slavery. Her parents, however, were not slaves. David Laney purchased his freedom about twenty years before Laney’s birth; he purchased his wife’s freedom sometime after their marriage. Laney learned to read and write by the age of four and could translate difficult passages in Latin by the age of twelve, including Julius Caesar’s Commentaries on the Gallic War.

Miss Laney started the first black kindergarten in Augusta, Georgia and the first black nursing school in the city, the Lamar School of Nursing. Many people were influenced by the work that Miss Laney did at Haines. Ms. Mary McCleod Bethune who worked with Miss Laney for a year was so impressed by Miss Laney’s accomplishments that she went to Florida and founded Bethune-Cookman College for Blacks. This outstanding institution continues to thrive and produce thousands of African American students.

After a life of selfless dedication to the education of her people, which focused on the education of her people, Miss Laney died on October 23, 1933. Thousands of people came to her funeral. Her body was buried on the corner of the lawn of the Haines & Normal Industrial Institute. Miss Laney’s spirit lives on and her strong legacy continues to this day.

The Air We Breathe

 

November is National COPD Awareness Month and we should not take the air we breathe for granted.Our lifeline is tied directly to the air we breathe,

 

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a serious lung disease which makes it hard to breathe. Also known by other names, such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, COPD is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and also causes long-term disability.

The number of people who have COPD is on the rise — more than 12 million are currently diagnosed with it. And it is estimated that another 12 million may have COPD but not realize it.

If you or someone you know has symptoms such as chronic coughing, shortness of breath or wheezing, see your doctor or health care provider for a simple breathing test. By taking steps now, and talking with your doctor or health care provider about treatment options, you can breathe better and enjoy a more active life.

 

Did You Know?

  • COPD is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States and causes serious, long-term disability
  • COPD kills more than 120,000 Americans each year. That’s one death every 4 minutes
  • More than 12 million people are diagnosed with COPD
  • An additional 12 million likely have COPD and don’t even know it http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/lung/copd/index.htm

 

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for 10/30/2012-Beyond October (vol.10, Iss.5)


Breast cancer awareness

Breast cancer awareness (Photo credit: AslanMedia)

Beyond October

As we close the month of October and National Breast Cancer Awareness month, we can sit and wonder was enough said and done to help the cause. Until there is a cure for breast cancer we must commit to do more beyond thirty-one days in the fall of the year. Breast cancer is a bold disease that has found its way into every segment of society and is spreading like wildfire.  Because breast cancer is not stopping, slowing down or taking a break, we must be very diligent to stay in the fight to find a cure. As we speak, somewhere in the world someone has been given a diagnosis of breast cancer, and they do not know how to deal with the road ahead. Knowing that someone is in need of  ways to cope with breast cancer is reason enough to keep working to find a cure.  
Now is the time to make the effort to do your part to keep breast cancer awareness relevant and in the forefront of people’s hearts and minds. Do your part by connecting with local or national organizations that promote breast health. It is vital that everyone remembers to education, empower and encourage others about breast cancer. 
Until we see that breast cancer is not taking over at alarming rates to women, men, young and old people we have to work hard by going out and telling others we support breast cancer health and awareness. So be challenged, be courageous, be committed to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for September 6, 2012-Walk Into Your Season (Vol.9, Iss.1)


Seasons Change...

Seasons Change… (Photo credit: jcbmac)

Walk Into Your Season

I feel seasons everywhere and

I feel blessings in the air

those seeds that you’ve sown

your gonna come into your own

seasons walk into your season. http://bit.ly/UwzlXV

As the hot and lazy days of summer come to a close, it signals that soon we will move into the season of fall/autumn. The month of September brings forth a change or shift in the air and surroundings. The heat dial starts to come down and a cool breeze is an undertone that you start to feel in the sunshine state and other areas of the south.

Take the challenge and embrace this shift in the atmosphere. As the winds of cool stir let it take you and move you forward. What better time for a new start, a new beginning . Give yourself permission to Walk Into Your Season. This time, this moment is yours to move one foot in front of the other and take what are your hopes and dreams. Just commit to doing things differently, start to Walk Into Your Season.

Lay aside fear, doubt, unbelief, haters and any obstacles that in your way. Now more than ever you must see yourself going in this new direction in your life, Walk Into Your Season. Turn your fear into faith, your doubt into determination, unbelief into understanding, haters into helpers and obstacles into opportunities. Do it now Walk Into Your Season.

Ready or not the time is moving on and going forward you can decide to let it pass you by or you can get to stepping and boldly Walk Into Your Season.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for August 9, 2012-We Remember Whitney Houston (Vol.8, Iss.2)


We Remember Whitney Houston

In a town called Newark, in the state of New Jersey almost a half a century ago today, Whitney Elizabeth Houston was born. The international musical icon, Whitney Houston tragically died last February and the world was left with a void. Today as we say Happy birthday, I decided to yield my blog space to memories of  Whitney Houston.

I asked my family how they remembered Whitney and immediately my mother, Marian A. Clay said her favorite song was “How Will I Know” and then the singer, Greta,  shouted out “The Greatest Love of All” and then she changed to “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” as she broke out in song making my heart smile to hear her sing with so much feeling. I then scanned my musical memory for a favorite (there are so many) and for some reason the first song that came to my mind was “I Have Nothing” so I thought what made that come to mind first.

My Mom’s favorite, “How Will I Know” was noteworthy as the third single from the “Whitney” album from 1985. “How Will I Know“, peaked at No. 1 and introduced Houston to the MTV audience thanks to its video. Houston’s subsequent singles from this, and future albums, would make her the first African-American female artist to receive consistent heavy rotation on MTV. http://bit.ly/S5ZbPu

Greta’s first Whitney Houston favorite was record-breaking “Greatest Love Of All”  from March 1986. The song received critical acclaim and became a big hit, topping the charts in Australia, Canada and the US, while reaching the top 20 in most countries, including Italy, Sweden and UK. It remains her third biggest US hit, after “I Will Always Love You” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)“.http://bit.ly/S60ayW . This Whitney song, is special and reminds me of the importance of children in our present and our future.

Greta’s second pick of  “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” is the fourth single from Whitney Houston‘s second album, Whitney. The ballad was released in February 1988. The song was written by Frank Wildhorn and Chuck Jackson and produced by Narada Michael Walden. Wildhorn approached Jackson about the opportunity to write for Whitney Houston. He gave him the title, and Wildhorn completed the music and lyrics for the song.

Initially, Houston did not want to record the song, feeling there was no special message to convey. However, Arista Records CEO Clive Davis believed the song would go to number one if she recorded it, so she agreed. It indeed became a number one, Houston’s seventh consecutive one in the United States.http://bit.ly/S61H8k . The song title asks the all important question of direction for those lost after losing love.

My favorite pick of a Whitney Houston song is “I Have Nothing”  and it like so many made history. After the back-to-back successes of Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and “I’m Every Woman“, “I Have Nothing” became yet another hit, peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and being certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The song also became a hit on the Billboard Hot R&B Singleschart, with a number four peak, and a number-one peak on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. Houston established another historic milestone in Billboardchart history with the two previous singles off the soundtrack and this song, becoming the first artist to have three songs inside the top 11 of the Hot 100 chart in the same week since the chart began using Broadcast Data System and SoundScan data in 1991.http://bit.ly/S62VAz

The song capsule for Whitney Houston is so vast and offers music that came and left its footprints of an impression that are lasting and classic. “The Voice” as Whitney Houston has been called gave the world so much in the songs and performances she provided over  the years. As I sit here and write about a few of her songs, I am both sad and happy. I am sad that she is no longer here with us, but so happy that she was born 49 years ago, and gave us music that will last a lifetime and beyond.

Happy birthday Whitney Houston, may your soul be at peaceful rest. Listen to the following link to hear the pure talent of Whitney Elizabeth Houston  http://bit.ly/S65KRT
