Wisdom Wednesday: Clear Your Mind

Clear your mind.

Release the thoughts of tomorrow. Release the thoughts of things that need to get done. Release the thoughts of what you could have done better. Release the thoughts of what bad things have happened.

Fuel the Day: Get on the Good Foot!

As James Brown said, “Get on the Good Foot!”

I believe that fueling our day through healthy food is getting on the good foot.

Look at the word, “breakfast.” I read, “break” “fast.” The first meal of the day is to break the fast that you begin after dinner and while you are asleep. Providing your body with nutritional essentials is imperative for a Warrior’s mind, body, and spirit. Mind, because a Warrior is unable to function at their highest mental capacity without healthy food, thus being sluggish, not processing properly, and sometimes getting frustrated.

Wisdom Wednesday: Guard Your Elements

Behold your power. Behold your worth. Behold your peace. Behold your joy.

You, fellow Warrior, are the ruler of them all. No one, but you.

Each of the universal elements that are within us are magnificent but can also be fragile…if we allow it to be. As much as it is treasured, it will be challenged. We must be the protectors of the elements. We shall not allow anyone else the power to control what is within each of us.

Wisdom Wednesday: Break the Cycle

Break the cycle.

As with the circle of life, there are things that are within us that have been passed down from generation to generation. Not heirlooms, wealth, or homes. These things that have been passed down are things that we can do without. One stands to better themselves by correcting it.

Deodorant, please. Hold the Aluminum.

Deodorant: the beholder of freshness, fighter of funk.

It sounds like a superhero, and that is because it is. We all (almost, all) use it. We rely on it. We appreciate it.
