living in the past

The trouble with people that live in the present with those who are still living in the past is… When they don’t take their medication! Purge please, it’s depressing.

Living in the past can be one of the biggest inhibitors in a person’s life to seeing the things that their future will have to offer. In order to achieve the brightest future possible we must resist trying to light up the darkness that is our past. Don’t let your past mistakes and past regrets stop you from becoming the person that you want to become. Change is never easy and we shouldn’t expect it to be. We just have to be mindful that instead of fighting hard to hold on to what was, we must instead fight hard to let go.

In Youth We Learn, In Age We Understand

Today’s quote on classic wisdom could very well be a Bible quote right out of the book of Proverbs, or even the New Testament. It is however from Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, a 19th century German writer and novelist .

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.” – Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (1830 – 1916)

How many times have you said to yourself, “if only I knew what I know now, when I was young”? Or fantasize about going back in time, getting about 20 or 30 years younger but retaining your knowledge and wisdom. Yes, older folks do tend to do that. If you’re still young you probably think you still have plenty of time – surprise! – you don’t.

In the Bible we see many examples of the importance of learning wisdom, especially when we are young, but alas it usually takes time and years to begin to get it. In Proverbs Solomon instructs his sons to learn wisdom, follow instruction and gain understanding.

“My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding.” – Proverbs 5:1 NKJV

Also, oftentimes adults still think as children, not having the maturity required of wisdom. As Paul puts it in his letter to the Corinthians:

“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” – 1 Corinthians 13:11 NKJV

So, as a young person, try to learn wisdom and gain understanding as much as you can while you are still young. And if you are older, hopefully you’ve gained a measure of wisdom, but don’t stop now there’s plenty more to be had.

restoring my faith in manity

It was once said… “It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place”. That has never been an issue of mind; my issue is continuing my belief in manity, all that I practice and come to love can’t be fooled by such poor taste in judgment.

The question is asked if Tupac Amaru Shakur should have a holiday… Yes, right along side President Obama and Dick Gregory… Leaders in their own right. A lot of people have forgotten about Dick Gregory but he’s earn the title God Father of fitness. Most where clueless of natural care, until money allowed others to create and promote fitness and wellness campaigns as their own. It takes many bangs on the ceiling to crack it before breaking… It’s not a Black thing, it’s a right thing and because their fight is for a true cause… Never forgotten xo7
