Saul Williams Poetry Night

Words cannot express how I felt when I got to meet one of my favorite poets. It was such an extraordinary night for me. I was in complete awwww.....just amazed at the fact that it was real. It almost felt like I was dreaming or something. He put on a great show with songs, poems, and of course dialogue. He made a great point in telling everyone to voice their opinions, regardless of what others may think. He said you my not believe 100% of your parents views on things and thats okay. I took that as something I meantioned before being more of you and less of someone else. It seems simply, however it can be very complicated sometimes. In this day and age we have a lot of distractions such as media, social media, workplace, and this capitalistic world we live in. How do we get over all of this...I know the answers will be different for everybody. Im finding for myself right now what is working is writing in my journal. Im trying to do it on a daily basis and look back on my experiences to challenge myself in different ways. I know the main thing for me will be changing careers soon. I know for sure I miss working with people and the community. Thats absolutely something I have to get back to soon. I did ask Saul one question and that was how do I become more creative. He told me to look into this particular artist work. I have to get her book and write a seperate post about how that goes!!!

~Thinking About Him~

There is someone who I deeply care about, I just been hiding my feelings. It really sucks to be in this position. It has been a lot of things going on in his life, and I feel I need to be there to lift him up. I use to write in my journal thinking someday he will be my husband. It was literally like God was telling me that.

The not so good thing about it is...I stop speaking to him from something so dumb. And I feel like no matter what I keep thinking about it. Like how stubborn I can be at times....for no reason at all. I guess its like God revealing things to me daily. I just some how have to find a way to reconnect to him. I know life is just to short to just not go after what God has for us. This maybe the most boldest thing I have to do in my life. I have to muster up the courage to do so though. I can just see what God has in store for me nothing but blessing!

Let me stay focus and conquer God's plan for my life!! I hope my ❤ will be filled with joy. I will experience love, joy, marriage, and happiness one day. Amen!!

~Subject Bird~

This bird flew by me on my break three times. The third time I snapped this photo before he flew away.  The quality of this photo does the bird no justice. I really enjoyed watching him today. It was almost symbolic to me. The message I received was this job is only temporary. One day Candace you will be set free. You will live your dreams and fly just like me. The closer I connect with nature, the better I understand myself and my destiny. 

Smile at a bird today, and he may just teach you how to fly. -Aja Monet

~God's Love~

I had such an amazing weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I attending the Spoken Revolution event and a spoken work workshop with Ezekiel and Janette...IKZ. Just being around so many spiritual young people was awesome. It was great being around some friendly people. The south has some really overly nice individuals. And I was bless to have met some of them. God put me in this place for a reason. I am truly blessed and I had even tell you the half. 

Just know if you trust in God with a kinds like your heart. He will show up and shift your environment. He did it for me and he will do it for you. 

While I was on the beach....I remember thinking how I was so free. No matter how far I looked out....all I could see was no end to the ocean. I compared myself to the ocean. How small I was compared to the massive ocean. It really humbles you to compare the two.

Another thing I thought about walking on the sand. And see my footprints and think of the footprint poem about God. Thinking about how my grandmother use to have that in her home. And and how her home was so holy.

I was truly in my place of piece in Florida. I know that peace was God moving in me. He love is endless like the ocean. Just pure love you cannot get anywhere else. 

I ask that you accept his grace and love. Let him in your heart. Amen

~Desk Chronicles~

My thoughts today at work:

I'm really enjoying my natural hair out.

It's hard working in the corporate world without culture. My culture is so important to me. And I strongly invite it in the work place.

Listening to Lauren Hill on Pandora a Co worker stops and says "Are you singing?" Me: yeah.... (I've been here for over a year you never said a word to me. Totally was weird...I think she should of kept walking.

I can't wait to move to my new department. Checking off the days.

Can't wait for my upcoming trip....yay!

Can't wait until I'm an entrepreneur so I don't have to be chained to a desk. 

Just my thoughts

~True Queen~

This is so totally me. I don't think like everyone else. I would rather educate my mind with books. Instead of going out all the time buying expensive items. All that stuff will get old eventually anyway. I choose to feed into the unmaterialic side of life. There is nothing like a soulful woman. She is above all the true Queen on her throne.

~Give Love A Chance~

The secret to finding true love is to never give up. Never give up hope or faith that love will come your way. True love is the essence of mankind. I believe we are all meant to love and be love and appreciated. 

This is something that I though of while walking in the park. I'm still waiting on my one and only. True love will manifest in my life.

~Money Can't Buy Everything~

True there are some things money just can't buy. Don't spend your life just chasing after it. There are some people who are rich monetarily, yet are broke and empty in other ways.

~Baltimore Riot~

This is not a Black vs White thing
This is not citizen vs police thing
However, this is a right vs wrong thing
A human right thing...simple

These young people are not thugs 
they are however a people questioning a system 
a system that countlessly fails us
what you see here is more political than voting IMO. It's a cry for help 
It's the beatin' up and bruised
 looking for a way to morn. 

It really hit me last night. As a seen a white young man speak about oppression and white prevailed as if he were Black. He spoke about how his political views detached him from his parents. Isn't it amazing how someone who has a choice speaks out. Others may not have a choice because they were born Black. Poetry night amazes me you never know what you'll hear. The poetry community has found a way out.

love will come but when

~The Mind Set of Entrepreneur~

This is my mind set while working a day job. I constantly am visioning a way out of the rat race. I know I have super high expectations for myself. An entrepreneur mind is always going. Creating and connecting the pieces of the puzzle. The mind set protects the dream and vision from distractions. The mind set is strong and clearly focused. The mind set is me. 

I am an entrepreneur! If that is your goal you can say it too.
