One Day The Universe Will Offer You A New Path


“There will come a day when the Universe will offer you a new path. An uncharted land to explore, where no maps have ever gone before. One day, the Universe will gently place you in a space that you will not find the familiarity of comfort. A place that takes you to the edge of yourself, escorting you to the point of yet becoming another. One day you will be encouraged with a gentle nudge where no words will utter “come this way” but the opening, and warmth of yielding to something new deeply shifts your spirit to the unconventional. A place where tradition has no authority, and visceral reflection freely contemplates the very heart and mind of God. One day, you will either answer “yes” with forward motion into something so profoundly new or walk away in fear from labored truths, honesty, and authenticity full of light, life, and love. What will be your answer today, will you step forward or move back?” — Kai Mann

20 Year Anniversary In the D


This month marks my twenty year anniversary living in “The D”. I remember 20 years ago when I moved here in July we were still wearing jackets and I thought “Will they ever have a summer?” Two days after I got here there were 13 tornadoes that hit Detroit some near the 8-mile area where I was two miles away from and across the northwest area of Detroit. I remember the people that I had met during this time asking me if I had brought this weather with me. Storms I was used to being from Florida, but not the cool weather that came with it. Detroit was a bit of a culture shock for me. I had moved from Fort Myers, Florida to Chicago, and then moved here to Detroit where the African American population is predominate. I laugh now because I truly did not know what to think, I had a sea of emotions when I got here as well as learning how to drive in the mountainous snow that fell the following winter. When I look back on my 20 years here it has been an experience of true growth and evolution. Thank you Detroit for having me, keeping me, and loving me….it has been real!

#selfcare is NOT Narcissism


#selfcare is NOT narcissism
For years now we have suggested that people put ‘their’ oxygen masks on ‘first’ and now there seems to be rhetoric that says because they are, that they are being selfish or narcissistic. The suggestion to take care of yourself first gets a bad rap when we begin to do so in the sense that it says “no” to someone else; or we don’t like what the art of taking care of self looks like from our vantage point. We can’t pick and choose how we want people to take care of themselves because it looks insensitive to us because them being in a healthy state of mind might leave us behind, or they need time to themselves for an uncertain amount of time. The person who is taking care of self knows what that looks and feels like to them and because we love them we have to allow them to balance themselves in the best way that they know how.

We have so many people doing the opposite of taking care of themselves to the point of self deprecation and deprivation that it is leaving them in a void. Some of us become co-dependents to the state of martyrdom because it makes us look saintly but underneath we are miserable. When we deplete ourselves because we have chosen to put others before ourselves over and over again in a way that is unhealthy it places emotional stress and tension on us that can present itself through mental and physical health issues. We have to balance out our energies in a way that replenishes us so that we are able to give to those we love and care for in ways that allow us to give of ourselves in the best light possible.

Suicide or Legacy


The words “Legacy is Intentional” ran through the forefront of my mind like rushing water this morning. I thought about the legacy I almost didn’t leave, and the accomplishments made from a person who contemplated suicide almost daily from the age of 12 to about 28. I gave in to thoughts about the consequences my actions could’ve held if I had been successful. I ponder the businesses I’ve started since and the Interviews I’ve done with some of Michigan’s up and coming as well as seasoned thought leaders, speakers, authors, journalist, and artists. What if I hadn’t been here to share some of the stories that I have been privy to hear, the account of lives transformed from incarceration, death, spiritual defamation, travesty, sickness, mental health, and other such causes.

My intention twenty years ago to leave a different legacy not for myself but for those who would come behind me ultimately made me look at life in a different way. I had to transform my own thoughts to believe that I can be me, live in the world, and succeed. I understood that I am purposed in life to be who I am so that abundance or blessings that would occur could not be said to have been something that I had done; but the work of a higher power. In my platform I talk about things that others would call faults being gifts that were given to us and how we utilize those gifts or not, is the determining factor of our destiny. I pray that I have been a blessing in the lives of others and that I been of value to all the lives that I have touched. If not, I believe that I still have time left.

Sub-Posts


When we think of legacy we begin to think with a conscious state of mind. We start to think in different terms of what we want our legacy to look and feel like. Some years ago I began to consciously post. I posted videos and written posts, some with flyers attached of the things I was learning, questions I wanted to see what others thought, and experiences that I have had. As a thinker and someone who wants to better themselves on every level I consciously break apart experiences that I have. My goal is to see where I went wrong, and what I can do better in the next experience. For most of us our legacy will live on in our children’s children and when my legacy asks “What was I like,? What was I thinking? What was I learning? And who was I trying to be?” I believe that I will have left a wealthy electronic footprint of answers through everything that I do. My experiences are not just for people to see. I’m leaving a legacy for my children’s children to follow.

You see, I am an adult that recognize that I have missed out on a lot of wisdom. Much of it that I’ve had to learn myself through my own experiences. I realized a long time ago that even though I wasn’t taught a lot of things it was still “my” responsibility to learn. So after careful thought I begin to consciously post those lessons from experiences because maturity allow us to see a lesson or experience from a different level or consciousness as we grow and evolve and I wanted to be mature enough to share what I learned.
So, when I am not around to give answers to questions that my children’s children may have questions to I pray that I have left with them most of everything that they’ll need to know to walk in wisdom and knowledge.

When I recently was told “You seem to sub-post a lot” no, I’m pretty conscious about everything that I post and the way that I post it. My strategy is to put out everything I learn as I learn it. It’s a reference for myself and for my legacy.
