Its KEY

The weekend show has to be about FL and Puerto Rico

uphill-battle

An uphill battle…

Puerto Rico is still underwater and breaking down in health.
$1 from as many who can towards healing and rebuilding will surely help.

Two hurricanes hit and despite the presidents “perfect 10” buffering –
the people in Puerto Rico are still in dire trouble and suffering.

RHONJ Bethenny Frankel is on the case! I do love those Real Housewife shows.
She’s filling planes with food & supplies to save lives and having them destination flown.

Ricky Martin is from Puerto Rico and with humility conquers the verb “trying -”
he’s sending food and supplies to the island as well; to help halt folks from dying.

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have been moved enough to hollar!
They’ve used thier mics and fanbase-love to raise 36-million dollars.

And while that sounds great! The island is still in the red
it’s not about 1 neighborhood in turmoil, but all of the people being fed.

The money raised will be divided in multiple ways to facilitate the most.
The bulk of it takes an infrastructure hit – none can transport without flight or clearing the roads.

So even though the donations are pouring in Puerto Rico needs much more.
Fema is on the scene but are overwhelmed and with little soar.

Ellen Degeneres is working with Cherrios – a nutritious name.
They’ve transported a thousand pounds of food to Puerto Rico by plane.

The amount of aid needed seems insane but we can each do our part
to remind Puerto Rico that they are in our prayers and in our hearts.

Click any of the highlighted links above —
and therein will be a route for you to give love.

Thank you in advance for caring that much about your brother.
I’m Qui
loving you unbiasedly — it’s second nature; I’m a mother.

I’m about life.

sunshine-state.jpgPS…

Still upside down from all of the water
let us not forget the peninsula Florida.

Just as I was about to publish this write of Puerto Rico HELP being on-ramp
I saw a line that went on for miles of Floridians needing foodstamps.

I don’t know what kind of assistance system our government has put into place
that has folks still out of sorts in the usual sunshine state.

They are still living low on necessities like water and food.
The coverage of Florida is light – in fact, quite subdued.

Don’t forget to send aid their way if you can.
Tragedy falls at once across the land.

This weekend we wont forget and will be encouraged as well,
to sit down and click a link to donate some help.

That’s what’s up! What do you say?
Let’s remember Puerto Rico, TX and the Sunshine state.

No sitting comfy in our homes.  We can all do a small part
to show our fellow Americans in need that they are in our hearts.

Cool! Karma is still real; let her always be understood,
Today you may be up but when you’re down – who’ll give you food?

Put yourself in the victims shoes.
Use the news for insightful views.

Don’t criticize – Support and utilize
I’m Qui
Send a buck, maybe 5. Prove that you, too are a lover of life.

An Americans well-being is depending on you.

Kick, Push, Kick, Push. Coast

If at first you don’t succeed – try, try and try again.
When you gain mad speed, don’t forget “the legs” that have been your friend.

img_0007

Push thru like the background dude. Notice the hind-leg Kick!

WHOSE LEGS: Yours, your friends, your agent’s, your mothers, your partner, etc. The legs of your success is everyone that supported you and carried you – whether you asked them to or not.

Whoever it was that assisted you up and over that hill — remember them during the coast.
Whilst you coast, enjoy your accomplishments and forfeit not  to be learning the most.
Kick, Push, Kick, Push, Kick, Push, Kick, Push.  Coast!

Un-supportive folk are comparable to burnt toast –
your grill doesn’t cook that stuff no ‘mo.
Do yourself a favor and please let them and that go.

Always remember whose had your back the most.
It takes a lot to propel ahead — thus remember them on the coast.

Lupe Fiasco – Kick Push (Video) (Album Version)

Don’t forget Lupe Fiasco either. His joint inspired me to write this lil’ o’l piece.
Go on, click the link and join me in a dance-break release.

As we approach the weekend plan some quality time in your favorite hood.

thatGriot lady in coast mode and I’m feeling good. 😀

Don’t skimp on the kick.
Don’t skimp on the push.
Enjoy every moment of the coast.

Twosday

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on October 17, 2017 at 4:22 am

twos-dayToday is about you – so DO YOU and a new thing or two beyond your job scene and domestic routine.

Not sure what you could add to your usual mill? Below are a few idea-starters from POP SUGAR that may help toggle your noggin a little to encourage you to think outside of the box. Pick two today and DO YOU:

1. Go to a bookstore and get lost. Spend hours exploring every genre of book known to the world. Better still, snag one off the shelf and plop down in a comfy chair. Close down the store trying to finish that book (hey, you’ll save some cash), and leave only when the employees start giving you the side-eye.

Just me and my dog…

2. Indulge in some selfies. OK, as a general rule selfies should probably be taken sparingly, but every once in a while, it’s healthy to get dressed in an outfit you love and shamelessly take photos of yourself that you actually like. Let yourself keep clicking until you get it right. No one is there to judge you, except maybe your dog.

3. Complete a project you’ve been putting off. Make yourself go to a coffee shop, buckle down, and work. Update your résumé, put together a portfolio, finish your great American novel, apply to a new job or grad school, whatever. Just do it!

4. Take a hike. Spend some time with mother nature and see how the two of you get along when no one else is around. Stop and smell the roses, watch the sun set, embrace the quiet.

5. Try anew workout. Sometimes certain workouts (like Zumba, Booty Barre, anything dance-related) can be a little bit embarrassing to learn in front of other people. Master one of these fitness skills alone, or at least work on them enough so that when you’re in a class or doing it in front of your significant other, you look like you know what you’re doing . . . sort of.

6. Meditate. Find a quite space, turn the television off, put the radio on a zen or soundscape station (a station of soothing instrumentals), sit on a pillow on the floor, close your eyes and take deep breaths. Focus on a full inhale into your nose and focus on the slow exhale through your nose. Do this for about 10-minutes. Think of nothing. Focus on your breath. Be grateful for ever breath. Someone somewhere in the world is depending on a breathing machine to stay alive today. Say a prayer for them before you’re done meditating.

7. Take the longest, hottest bath of your life. Turn on some soothing music and enjoy a long soak with no fear of unwelcome interruptions.

Adding a couple of things to your daily grind that you normally don’t do,
like putting in time to self entertain, to care for and thank you –

is absolutely the right thing to do.
In all that you do in a day – don’t forget about you.

Not today, anyway.
You’ve got 24-hours to insert  some play.

Today is Tuesday and a good day to get crunk.
Pick two for you to conquer before the hump.

Me? Since I’ve conquered meditation early I’m free to workout or crook.
But since I’ve no time to steal, I’ll sit down and work on my book.

I like an exciting week, so I’m starting it off with adequate creative play!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, DO something for YOU, perhaps 2 on this Twosday.
