Teisha Brown Runs Down the latest gossip on Wendy Williams Real Housewife Nene Leakes & R&B Divas Lil Mo
Today I found myself becoming very angry thinking about the fact that I worked my A$$ OFF for almost 10 years CREATING a VERY SUCCESSFUL PROJECT that is paying alot of people alot of money and paying me NOTHING. I was in one of my LET GO & LET HAVE head spaces where I was feeling like THATS IT THE STRAW HAS BEEN BROKEN after going through "Paperwork". Every day of my life over the last few years I have had to make the CHOICE to either watch things fall apart or focus on putting things back together. The feeling of working for almost TEN YEARS to give birth to something and have it not only taken from but paraded in front of you almost daily can be trying to say the least. Rather than go to the me I was 10 years ago, I went back to the quotes I found almost a year ago when my salary started being withheld and I reminded myself of whats most important. I remind myself that I did NOT SELL MY SOUL which is the "Precious Thing" in Einsteins Quote and that I have made a BIG DIFFERENCE in other peoples lives like@michelleobama mentioned in her Quote. Im human so of course I have good days and bad days and as this legal battle goes on Im sure Ill have, but rather than feel justified being an "Angry Black Woman" I will use this experience as a lesson in the #POWER of #OPTIMISM & #FAITH and I remember that GODS VISION for me is FAR GREATER than My vision for myself. I am very #GRATEFUL for the lesson this experience has given me and I am #CONFIDENT that I wont be the only person learning a #LESSON and eventually everyone will #LEARN to treat each other #BETTER
PLEASE ENJOY PART OF MY ORIGINAL VISION IN THE VIDEO BELOW
The problem on both sides of this tragedy is #ANGER We can ALL figure out a way to justify #ANGER hell Im Angry I havent been paid in almost a year on a show I created, and angry that many people are angry with me for NO GOOD REASON, but I have learned that getting HEALTHY makes it easier to manage. There are times we all wanna scream and break some issh and in those times we have to find peaceful/healthy ways to release that tension. When I workout I talk to myself and remind myelf that I CAN OVERCOME ANYTHING if I can change MY MENTAL PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL SELF!! I shift my thoughts to creating GREATER OPPPRTUNITIES & Being a BETTER EXAMPLE of what of what I BELIEVE I AM.
Fighting back is THE ONLY WAY but it has to be within the boundaries of the LAW and cannot violate others!! No matter how angry we become or how WRONG we have been done...We have to fight CONSISTENTLY STRATEGICALLY FAIRLY with the RIGHT INTENTION!! We cannot WIN a fight against ANGER & HATE with Anger & Hate...SPREAD LOVE BE STRONG HAVE FAITH...But most of all do your OWN INDIVIDUAL PART to UPLIFT, INSPIRE & LOVE...RESULTS COME FROM DEDICATION & FAITH LETS CHANNEL THAT AND GET RESULTS!!!!
PEACE LOVE & BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL
I first posted this 25 weeks ago...She found a way out of that picture she was painted into...and shes sitting there figuring her way out of that frame & helping pave the way for women like for herself who are brave enough to risk everything to clear a pathway Sometimes we have to leave a space and look at it from the outside in. We have to step outside of the picture to see what others see and we cant always do that when we are INSIDE OF IT...Once we see what it is and how what we are doing affects us & the people around us, we can decide if its really worth it. The most important questions to ask ourselves is...Am I POSITIVELY impacting the lives of others? Am I really HAPPY in this situation...Not secure, comfortable, working but TRULY HAPPY? Our GREATEST contributions to the world & is sharing our KNOWLEDGE, LESSONS & GIFTS so that our legacy will live on through others. If we stop long enough to see whats really going on we realize we are digging ourselves into a big HOLE. The only way to stop is to be brave enough to QUESTION EVERYTHING RISK EVERYTHING LIFT , SUPPORT AND HOLD THE DAMN LINE...It is what got us here, what will KEEP US HERE and what our #OPPRESSORS fear most. DONT OPERATE THROUGH FEAR...FAITH IS STRONGER and the REWARD IS GREATER!!!
A very good friend sent this beautiful poem to me and I wanted to share it with you. Sometimes you have to just LET IT GO!
She just let go.
No one was around when it happened.
There was no applause or congratulations.
No one thanked her or praised her.
No one noticed a thing.
Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort.
There was no struggle.
It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.
It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore...
