“BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO START CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER”

CONVERSATIONS

GOOD MORNING READERS AND FELLOW BLOGGERS, MAY THIS BLOG FIND YOU IN GRATEFUL AND THANKFUL SPIRITS!

 

Today I would like to dedicate my blog to “FORUM FRIDAY”, where I will open up my blog to have a discussion for all to participate. I will ask a series of questions, give my answer and ask that you place your answers in the comments. Understanding that many people have different views, my only request is that we be mindful and respectful of others opinions. As adults I will advise for us to just agree to disagree and with that being said……LET’S CONVERSE PEOPLE!

 

QUESTION 1:

WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE 5 MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD? WHY?

MY ANSWER:

  1. CHILDREN, THEY ARE SOME OF THE MOST INNOCENT AND PUREST SOULS.
  2. SENIORS, THEY ARE SURVIVORS WITH MANY LESSONS TO SHARE. 
  3. OCEANS, THE VIEW OF AMBIANCE IS SO SOOTHING AND RELAXING.
  4. SUN, SUCH A POWERFUL AND MAGNETIC FORCE THAT SHINES RADIANTLY.
  5. MOON, FOR ITS ABILITY TO TRANSFORM AND STILL GRASP LOVELY ATTENTION.

QUESTION 2:

IF YOU COULD SPEND ONE DAY IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

MY ANSWER:

I WOULD SPEND THE DAY IN THE PRESIDENT’S SHOES, NOT DONALD TRUMP, BUT RATHER THE POSITION ITSELF. NOT ONLY DO I WANT TO FEEL THE THOUGHTS AND DECISIONS MAKING THAT THIS COMMAND REQUIRES, I WOULD BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW CHALLENGING SUCH A LEAD ENTAILS. THE POWER OF HIGH AUTHORITY IN THIS COUNTRY DOESN’T BOOST MY EGO, BUT RATHER THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT ONE SHOULD TAKE FOR SO MANY IS HIGHLY RESPECTED!

 

QUESTION 3:

WHAT PART OF YOUR CULTURE ARE YOU THE MOST/LEAST PROUD OF?

MY ANSWER:

IN REGARDS TO MY CULTURE, THE BLACK COMMUNITY, THE THINGS I AM MOST PROUD OF IS THE ACHIEVEMENTS FOR CIVIL RIGHTS FROM GENERATIONS BEFORE MYSELF. THE UNIFIED UPWARD FIGHT THAT WAS DEMONSTRATED, ARE ONES THAT I GENUINELY AIM TO PARTICIPATE IN. WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT I’M LEAST PROUD OF WITH MY CULTURE, IS THE BLACK ON BLACK CRIME THAT HAS TRAGICALLY PLAGUED OUR PEOPLE. I BECOME VERY CONFUSED ON HOW WE COME FROM NOTHING AND BATTLE TOGETHER, TO HAVE SOMETHING AND FIGHT ONE ANOTHER, WTF??

 

QUESTION 4:

IF YOU COULD PASS ON ONLY ONE ATTRIBUTE TO YOUR CHILDREN, WHAT WOULD IT BE? WHY?

MY ANSWER:

KNOWING THAT THERE ARE MANY ATTRIBUTES THAT YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO HAVE, TO SUM UP INTO ONE IS VERY CHALLENGING. THEREFORE, I WILL USE ONE THAT CAN AIDE IN MANY THINGS, BUT NOT AS IF IT IS THE TOP OF THE LIST. I WOULD PASS MY FAITH ON TO MY CHILDREN, BECAUSE THIS WILL GENERATE HOPE, BELIEF, PATIENCE, STRENGTH, INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION!

 

QUESTION 5:

WHO DO YOU THINK HAS THE STRONGEST INFLUENCE ON THE PERSON YOU ARE TODAY?

MY ANSWER:

THE PERSON I OWE THANKS TO, WHO HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON THE PERSON I AM TODAY, IS MY CHILDREN’S FATHER. UNFORTUNATELY IT WASN’T A POSITIVE INFLUENCE, BUT HIS NEGLECT TOWARD MY CHILDREN MADE ME STRIVE EVEN HARDER FOR THEM. I STOOD ALONE MANY TIMES WITH MY CHILDREN WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG AND WE FACED MANY CHALLENGES THAT HE JUST SAT BACK WATCHING. HIS NON-ASSISTANT IN THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF OUR CHILDREN PUT ME IN A FOCUS MODE AND AS I CONTINUED TO GROW, I WAS ABLE TO FORGIVE HIM AS WELL AS THANK HIM……BECAUSE OF HIM NOT DOING IT, I WAS ABLE TO SHOW HIM THAT I COULD, I DID AND STILL AM!

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY “FORUM FRIDAY’ AND UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, BE SAFE AND HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!

    Question 1: God’s unconditional love for me. My family and their unconditional love for me. People that are real. Nature and animals. The ocean also.
    Question 2: A homeless person just to see how I would get treated. That’s what came to mind.
    Question 3: Our beauty, compassion and intelligence. Our vanity, complacency and narcissism. If that makes sense? That’s American culture as a whole.
    Question 4: A combination of compassion and empathy. The world needs more of it.
    Question 5: This one is hard because there’s a combination of so many that come to mind. In a positive aspect God/Jesus, my children, my husband, people that have helped me on my journey 😊🙏🤷🏻‍♀️In a negative aspect my mom giving me conditional love, rejection, emotional abandonment…all of that caused me to have serious trust issues to unlearn. My dad’s drug and alcoholism.
