Spirit Food #2: Rewards of Giving

Almost everyday, I hear and see people announcing their good deeds expecting to be praised. I see people lend you things and the first thing they make clear is they expect to be paid back. Why do we give? Is it because you feel pressured in doing the right thing? Are looking forward to the payback? Why even give if you're expecting to get something back? That's not giving - that's loaning. Many of us have confused the two and it's affecting relationships around the world. Hopefully my words can bring some insight on how I feel about the situation. Would you like to join me? I'd be honored by your presence!

Spirit Food #1 – Protect the Word more than Things…

I may be a month late, but I'm keeping my word to start the new year off by building and strengthening my Spirituality. What I would do is read a passage from the Bible everyday and then takes notes on what I learned from it. Now I decided, in order to stay with it, to post what I learned on my new blog series, Spirit Food. This will not only keep me in line with studies, hopefully, but will give you a piece of what I'm learning in hopes that it may trigger you to want to feed your inner space as well. This is experimental so I don't know how this will work. Take this ride with me and let's find out together. Enjoy my first Blogisode and I hope you'll be inspired by the end.

Blogisode #26: Inspiring or bragging??

When I do something great, of course I want to share my news with anyone who will listen. But when does constantly reminding people that you're a big shot turn into beating a dead horse? So you got the money and live the life we wish we could live - now what? What do you plan to accomplish by telling us all the time that you're living well? Is that all you're going to do with your fame? Or are you going to do something that actually matters in the real world? In today's Blogisode, I explore the difference between the inspirers and the braggers. Choose your side.

Spirit Food Blog Premiere: Serving #0 – Why now?

I decided to start a new blog series, but this time I will write about what I've learned during the week as far as going through the motions of life. There are things that keep my spirit stronger whether it be words from the bible or acts from people that I've witnessed. Without sounding like a preacher, I'd like to share my experience with you in hopes that I can help make a difference in someone's life. Here I give a brief description of my idea. Read all about it.

Blogisode #25: Flamingoes

Its human nature for us to compare our attitudes and skills to animal expressionism: eyes like a hawk, you stink like a skunk. When it comes to describing how unique we are, I want to be compared to a Flamingo. In a world overrun by pigeons, nothing stands out more in the bird kingdom than a flamingo. In this blog, I talk about the day I first heard this expression and what it meant to be. Hopefully, it'll enlighten all of you as well on how to look at things in your life for the better.

Floetry Friday #7: A Rose that grows in Ridgewood

When I think of Floetry Friday, I look at it as an outlet to bring out the poetic side of me that ran most of my teenaged life. Although I don't rhyme like I used to, that doesn't mean I'm not expired to write verses in metaphoric forms. This time I'm taking a crack at love by writing a heartfelt poem that is short, but sweet. It's about a rose that grew in Brooklyn, eventually changing into a lovely Honey Bee!

Rant #4: “Driving” Me Crazy

This week's Rant literally DROVE me crazy! Living in the city, I'm sure hundreds of you can relate. That's why I don't feel so bad presenting this topic as I believe I'm expressing points that most of us have thought of or still think about...maybe even worst. Check out my words and follow what I mean.
