Closing the NaBlogPoMo 2013

Well we have come to the end of this month of November and my exercise in participating in the NaBlogPoMo or BLOGGING and WRITING for The Next 30 Days. I must admit I wrote a lot of days but not everyday. I allowed myself to work from some prompts and other times I do what has even my staple…working from the three P’s (people, places, and possessions).

I want to thank the wonderful people at BlogHer.com for posting and presenting the blogging challenge it helped me with some self-discovery and sharpening my blogger iron. I hoped for daily post but it just did not materialize. This did help me see that inspired post that causes my tribe to pause ad then think is my niche.

As we enter the month of December and closeout 2013. I will use my time to be reflective on the past year and refreshed as we move toward the future in 2014! I believe the best is yet to come!


I live for an opportunity to exercise my blog/writing discipline ( when I force myself to be on a posting schedule) all in the name of promoting the three P’s- People, Places, and Possessions. People who matter, places worth talking about and possessions I am happy to share. When I am in blog/writing mode I am work the three P’s and do my part to impart knowledge and inform the masses.

This November I have decided to join the company of the beautiful boasters of BlogHer.com for their National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). For the next 30 days, I vow to blog, write, and post! Sounds pretty simple right, well we will see if I am up to the challenge. I will channel the inner blog/writing discipline and see what comes out on the other side.

Taking part in the NaBloPoMo,also allows me to expand my reach with others in the blog/writing community. I am so a proponent of support and encouragement. I am looking forward to great blogging and writing in the 30 days to come.

Let the blogging and writing begin…

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for September 27, 2012-The 100 Day SMART GOAL CHALLENGE (Vol,9. Iss.4)

The 100 Day SMART GOAL CHALLENGE   "The 100 Day SMART Goal Challenge"


Last week I made a stop in your track discovery. As I finished up my daily devotion from my YouVersion app on my phone, I was congratulated for completing my 265th day of study. It hit me…We had 100 days left in the year before we embarked on 2013.

Later that morning I had a conversation with a person who was turning 40 soon and was concerned that she did not know what she wanted to be when she grew up. I told her she was going to have to “represent” to join the 4.0 club! I then went into analyze mode and began to question her about what she like, loved and would do if she could and not worry about failing. The rapid line of questioning stunned her and then she became silent. Then offered that she needed help with establishing a goal. I said okay and then  she left my office . I went to Google and added Goal setting to the search box. I pulled up some information  and went looking for her in her work area. I left the papers in her chair and returned to my office.

Later that evening while out with friends, it came to me. I needed to do something significant in the 100 days to come. I then shared this with Dr. Loretta Faith Harris. I am going to establish an event to help others achieve their goal within the next 100 days. She smiled and I was ready to get home and let my fingers catch up with my mind.

I went to social media (my Facebook page) and created an event page. I decided to call the event, THE 100 DAY SMART GOAL CHALLENGE. I always thought of what I had learned in Goal Setting workshops and lessons. When you determined a GOAL you needed to make it SMART. The SMART acronym is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely. This event would gather people who all want to accomplish something by January 1, 2013.  I was hyped and hoped I could get my Facebook  friends to come aboard and join the movement.  See the information below. Come on aboard and join us! #100Day #SMARTGOAL

The 100 Day SMART Goal Challenge is an opportunity for you to establish a task (large or small) and take the steps necessary to complete it by January 1, 2013. The “100 Day SMART Goal Challenge” event is a collective place where those who join can come together collectively as Accountability Partners to encourage and empower their selves and others. http://www.facebook.com/events/444796945573132/

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for September 25, 2012-The PUSH (Vol.9, Iss.



PUSH (Photo credit: Steve Snodgrass)




In the birthing process you cannot get to the delivery without THE PUSH.  The labor process is rarely seen as easy, it is where you start to put in the work. The PUSH, or act of PUSHING moves you closer to delivery. The intensity of THE PUSH takes major effort on the part of the pusher.


Are you in the mist of THE PUSH in your life? Is it hard or is it easy as you labor towards delivery? What will you deliver? Now is the time to focus as you are in the final stretch of THE PUSH.


Keep telling yourself that THE PUSH has a greater  reward, THE DELIVERY!
