Say THAT!

Qui Entertainment Magazine

listen-quote-larry-kingI have met some pretty fantastic people online and offline, that have fantastic conversation. No matter what topic we are on, they always have the perfect quips, responses, and quotes on hand. These are the most entertaining persons especially when marinated in wisdom.  Proverbial quotes – I like them. They can be witty, instructional and informational all at once. Wisdom does indeed come with age though I have found divine wisdom coming out of the mouths of babes, on a few occasions as well. That’s the best kind of communicative exchange – when you walk away wiser and proactively in thought.

I was raised in the church and I remember when Paster Floyd G. Taylor would preach and the saints were feeling it – they would belt out encouraging remarks like, “SAY THAT!, Tell the truth! and Amen!” Those are my exact sentiments when I fall into the captive conversation of a well…

It’s Your Big Day!

In Griot, Self Improvement on July 27, 2018 at 5:15 am

ice-cube_lets-go-to-work.gifThe last time that someone said those words to you, it was probably your birthday or the day of that big promotion at work. Do you remember that? How did hearing the words “It’s Your Big Day,” affect you and make you feel? Was it excitement? A little nervousness… okay a lot. Did you feel light on your feet, perhaps you had butterflies in your belly? All of that would pair well with the resonance of those words into the universe.

Regardless of how you felt, you went with it. You continued to broach the day with certain bravery and even a boldness because you knew at that moment that ‘it’s your big day,’ and you owned it. You poised your spirit and your posture to receive it. You may have even thanked God for the opportunity before stepping foot into the day that was so perfectly tailored for you. Remember that?

That day seemed to be perfect in every way including the assumption that all of or at least most of it was perfectly out of your control. Yes? I’m not so sure nor perfectly convinced that you had a minor role in the manifested vibe of that day. It’s always been you who speaks to the universe and the universe responds and not the other way around. So, if your big day was the birth of your child, I guarantee you that you had a heck of a day 9-months back that gifted you with a birth. If your big day was a promotion at work, I’m pretty sure you put in countless hours over the past months and years that contributed to the company’s success before the promotion manifested. You get my point, right? You are the reason and the seed of tomorrow’s harvest because of the choices you make today.

What return of good would you like to manifest? Invest in the potential of it today and watch it grow. When the harvest comes in, be humble and grin then with wisdom and knowledge you do it all again. Every day is an opportunity to sow into your future. Be mindful, meditate and pray when shaping your big day.

Sow. What have you got up today for your tomorrow?

It’s Your Big Day today and you know it.
Let your poise and posture show it.

Tomorrow is coming; today you must learn to hone it.
When they say, “It’s Your Big Day,” you want to fully own it.

Nothing happens by coincidence or sole circumstance.
You’re the captain of this ship; the belle of the dance.

Take life by the horns; not just today, but every day
because good adds up to be understood
as yet another one of your big days.

You control your future – it does not control you,
I’m Qui
and It’s Your Big Day every day! Let an understanding console you.

BATW

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 25, 2018 at 1:13 am

one-lie-is-enough-to-question-all-truths.pngBATW is an acronym for Back Against The Wall. I could have easily used the term “between a rock and a hard place” to describe the point of desperation one might reach when they have no plan but have been given the microphone, a platform, and suspect of colluding with a foreign government.

In the event that you encounter a situation in life where you’re in a self-inflicted bind,
man-up to what you’ve done then utilize integrity & morale — but don’t lie.

Perhaps when you’re in a BATW moment and you have realized that you are wrong,
take a second to recap and reflect — then recall the words of this song:

Teach it to your wife, your kids, your neighbors on the right, and the left;
let integrity lead your conscience and know that honesty is always best.

It’s mid-week already and I’m eager to hump onto something with more integrity and overview.
