August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. stood before hundreds of thousands of people to give his infamous ‘I Had a Dream’ speech.
His hope was to end Racism. Sadly, it did not. Despite that, his speech is remembered each year, and for many every day, as a reminder of what one person can do.
His speech may have not ended racism, but it did ignite a fire in our country to be on the road to change.
Today though, it’s heartbreaking to listen to such a hope filled speech and then see the state of our country today.
It’s not the Democrats fault.
It’s not the Republicans fault.
It’s not the President’s fault (past present or future). It’s not Nancy’s fault.
It’s not Congress’s fault.
It OUR fault. We are supposed to be ONE nation and yet here we are on the cusp of our very own Hunger Games.
Change happens when one person does a good act, says a kind word, thinks of someone other than themselves and we shouldn’t wait to see who is going to step up and be that one person.
If there’s any competition going on, it should be who can spread kindness the most.
I’m not saying we all have to live in perfect harmony. Every INDIVIDUAL is different but we are the same because we all want the world to run smoothly.
Stop pointing fingers. Stop name calling. Stop choosing sides.

Getting some writing done. Sticker there so you can't see my terrible hand writing hahaha
Loving the loud clicking of the keys as I type. HP in the background as I work and the coffee I had earlier for the Jetlag I'm still getting over.
Absolutely loving the curved screen to write on
How I feel about a new service offering I’m creating 🤗 I hope I can keep this energy up and get it launched by my self-imposed deadline of Feb 1st (which also happens to be my birthday - so, double celebration 🎉 ). Do you ever get super excited by an idea and begin but then the self-doubt and over-thinking kicks in? This happens to me All. The. Time. Ideas burn bright like a sparkler then fizzle out just as quick 🤦🏼♀️ (Wow, that’s one of my worst metaphors - but you get what I mean). Determined to at least TRY to launch this shiny new idea in the next few weeks - and what will be, will be! Watch this space 🤞🏻
This one is my point of view regarding Gender Equality. It is not meant to offend anyone.
Arguments and suggestions are most welcome. I'd very much like to know your views regarding this.
Gender Equality, Gender Inequality, Gender Bias, Gender Discrimination.... Phrases on the air and everywhere. "Women should be allowed to go out to work like men do" "Women should be allowed to do everything a man can "
"Woman should get equal number of reservations in every sphere of life"
"Why shouldn't men do household work?"
"Why should men have the authority in a decision?" These questions are raised in the context of Gender Equality.
This is what Gender Equality is all about being spread in this "GLOBAL VILLAGE". But Dear Men and Women out there,
This is not what the term "Gender Equality" is about.
It has a meaning deeper to it which we often fail to understand.
A woman's work (as it is termed) - the household work, taking care of family, providing warmth endlessly and many more things related to inner harmony - has to be done by her because it is how "SHE" has been designed physically and emotionally.
A man's work (as it is termed)- doing the outside work, providing shelter to his family and many more things related to maintaining the outside harmony - has to be done by him because it is how "HE" has been designed physically and emotionally.
If both of them are made to do each other's work, why do you think there is a need for two different genders in the human race??? Interchanging each other's chores disturbs their "complex" composition and transforms them into "complicated" forms - the reason why foreign tension, stress and other emotional imbalances invade us.
The hormones - estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men - are in certain composition for a reason. Both the males and females have both of them but one in excess than the other. But we try to make hormones go out of their way to satisfy our egos badging them under the title of "Gender Equality".

— last week, I read through one of my favorite books of the Bible: Ecclesiastes. Though many view it as “depressing,” the truth is, Ecclesiastes is all about the meaning of life. We’re all searching for purpose, but at the end of the day, there’s only one thing that matters.
If it’s been a while since you’ve read this book (or you haven’t read it at all, yet) I highly suggest you study this book 👌🏾 PS: Song of Solomon was just as good, too. I’m definitely going back to study that one in depth after I finish the Bible.
