I’ll be the first black man, if any other hasn’t already, to say that I don’t give a damn how another ethnic group or individual feels about my color or pigment or even people akin to me. Why? Because people are sensitive to how people view their visage when they should be more concerned about the soul which is how they present their image to others. I don’t give a damn how beautiful your pigment or hue is or how young it makes you as you age, I don’t care to worship my hue or whether if light or dark skin on a woman or man is better because it’s just apart of the anatomy that gives detail to the body like a shine does to a colored car. It’s properties just as much ages like any organism, just makes you appear younger. Regardless of black or white, I’m not looking at that skin tone though you may perceive me otherwise, I focus on your mentality and focus. What makes the soul of a human isn’t their skin tone, but rather their character and the experiences that came along with building it. If you define your beauty, love and affection by your tone, nobody can truly respect you, you only make a spectacle of your skin but not whom you are within. If I’m going to love a person, it’s how they delineate, not boast.
It’s time to be ENCOURAGED.
💜When you have a purpose, you are not called to waste time. You are not called to do things just because the world approves of them. You are called to take your walk seriously and act according to God’s will for your life. You can’t worry about who you offend. People are just going to take it as judgement when they don’t understand that there is no partiality in God’s commandments. His rules apply to everybody. John 14:15 says “if ye love me, keep my commandments”. People will hate you for standing up for God, but remember the world hated Jesus first. They actually hated the one who was sent to save us from our evil ways. You can say things out of love and there will still be plenty of people who won’t receive it. It’s not my place to criticize anyone for their decisions. What you do is your choice because we were all given free-will. What you do with that free-will is none of my concern. At the end of the day, you either choose life or death. You are responsible for your own soul.
Weather is cooling down and All I could think of was Comfort food! Something warm, creamy & comforting for the body and soul! Rosemary infused Chicken Pot Pie! .
Recipe: 1 cup of pearl onions
2 small potatos
1/2 cup of corn, carrots, peas, edamame
1/2 tbs of salt 1/2 tbs black pepper
Sprinkle of rosemary & red pepper
Sauté all ingredients in olive oil until soften.
Add 2 tbs of all purpose flour to the veggie & brown for a few mins and add 3 cups of chicken broth & 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Let the mixture come to a boil and reduce until thickened.
Add diced chicken breast (you can substitute other meats)
If the mixture starts to look a little too thick, you can always add a little more broth and cream to loosen it up or to just add more sauce!
I topped mine with Puff Pastry! Enjoy!
Homemade Chicken broth: grab a large kitchen pot, fill with water & add 4-5 chicken breast. Add whatever spices & dried herbs you like or veggies. I added dried rosemary, bay leaves & basil to give the broth and chicken flavors which I love! Boil for 30 mins, take chicken out, let it cool. Dice the chicken & use it in the pot pie! #chicken#potpie#dinner#creamy#foodie#chef#life#foodie#carbs#protein#foodporn#instalike#instagood#like4like#follow4follow#soul#goodeats#instafood#healthy#instapic#blog#foodblogger#blogger#feedfeed#comfortfood#hungry#tasty#wellness
Be calm, it’s a blessing in disguise.
Last night was spent at the emergency room - result is walking with crutches, but everything is fine. Knowing that I was a monkey in my last life and forever taking risks is not the best plan if your goal is to come out of this life unbruised and unscarred. But I don’t want that. I want freedom, I want fear, I want mistakes, and I want to learn.
When something unexpected, something like this injury, happens, I intend to use my energies constructively. And I want you to know, I want you to BELIEVE, that you can actually benefit from going through a tough time. From being deeply hurt. The same thing that happens to you can be like a ≪ bridge ≫. All I see is an opportunity. I see the opportunity of the bridge leading me into a deeper understanding and gratefulness for life. Don’t just read my words and forget them. Really make it a habit to see the bridge. Challenge yourself to see it.
There is no ≪ apparent ≫ reason I was injured right before I was going to travel to Stuttgart (tomorrow) or to Croatia (on Wednesday). But the fact that’s it’s not apparent to me, the fact that I don’t know the reason right in this moment, only means there is a reason that goes deeper than the obvious. And I can’t see it yet, but it’s there. It always is. And instead of looking for a reason, I just let it be. I trust that there is a reason. I know that to be true. I so appreciate that life is giving me this opportunity to see the bridge.
And I thank you for letting me pour out my heart on here, and for accepting me, as the enthusiastic, messy soul I am.
Song of the day: Trapped In a New Scene by Octoberman🕊
🇩🇪 Gestern Abend führte mein Weg noch zur Notaufnahme, aber dem Fuß geht es soweit gut. Genau zum gleichen Zeitpunkt schrieb mir Kris, dass ein Blitz in der Nähe eingeschlagen sei, die Straßenbahn kollidierte 200m entfernt mit einem Radfahrer, und ein Mann wurde treibend im Rhein entdeckt. Manchmal gibt uns das Universum ganz klare Signale. Nimm dir jetzt einen Moment, schließ deine Augen. Atme drei Mal tief ein und aus. Sage dir und deinem Körper Danke.
Wofür bist du dankbar?
Anyone have any tips for boosting my immune system?
I’ve been dealing with some past traumas and I know that everything that internalizes can have an effect on our bodies.
So my kinesiologist has been incredible and I’m super grateful for her coming into my life at the exact right time... but I am tired of being sick 🤧
This is the third time in a couple of months that I’ve been ill so hoping I can get my immune system stronger to fight off any winter bugs 😬
Hit me with any of your tips and tricks, would love to hear them! 💕
