Mommie Dearest___The Elevator

What a day!  The time just seems to fly. Visiting with old friends and sharing all those wonderful Mother’s Day story was so much fun. Bernice’s story really made me come away with a different perspective. I was scared she was going to do it. Do what! You know the thing with the elevator. Did that really bother you? Yes, it did. Girl, when I made a reservation I wanted to make sure we did not have to go up to some sky-scraper restaurant and use an elevator. So how many places did you call?  I only called 42 restaurants. Get out of here! What made you change your mind? I was curious to see if she would do it after all of these years had passed. Were you disappointed when Bernice got on the elevator and didn’t do her spill? Part of me felt relieved and the other part of me felt as though Bernice had let go of some really dark secret in her life. It just always bothered me because she has never uttered one word.

So What did you think? I will never forget the life lesson she taught me on this Mother’s Day. It drove me nuts when Bernice would get on the elevator and face the opposite way. All I could think of was being stampeded by the people on the elevator for thinking we had a nutcase with us. No matter where we would go she always finds a store or building with an elevator.  Here comes her cheerleader always encouraging Bernice to do her “thang.”   You would get on the elevator and act like it was a normal day in the neighborhood and the queen had her clothes on. This where I wanted to pull out the Comet Can and get the Wire Hangers and spank you and Bernice A… For some reason the people on the elevator never seem to get indignant. What’s Up with that?  You are so good at imitating Bernice. Do it! Go ahead and Do It. Okay, if you insist. Hel….looo! Hel…looo! I’m Bernice but you can call me Bern. I’m just here checking out your eyes, mouths and whatever you got to remind me of myself and family. You sound so much like her. After all this time it all makes sense.

I saw Bernice grab your hand as she got on the elevator.  It felt as though she was my daughter and we were having our first Mother’s Day Dinner together.  All through the dinner, she didn’t have much to say. She had a lot on her mind. After we left the restaurant and got back on the elevator she grabs my hand again.  She laid her head on my shoulders. What was going on inside of your head? I felt as though I needed to protect her. Once we got to Justine house Bernice leaned over and ask me could she sit next to me. It was fine with me. I did not want you to feel left out. Hey! I was always cool with you and Bernice relationship. I felt we were the 3 musketeers and could conquer all together, “One for all and all for one.”  Relationships get messed when one person in the group began to act as though they need all the attention.  Here we go with the I Nucleus Factor.  Everything is centered around me. I control everything and everybody. I take all the credit.  Some people have some of these characters and traits or all of them. WHEW! Our friendship lasted all these years because we gave credit where credit was due. It’s always enough love to go around.

After everyone told their Mother’s Day story with the exception of Bernice, Justine brought out those famous cinnamon rolls packed with much love.  Justine can throw down when it comes to cooking.  That is Bernice favorite dessert. Hey! Did you call ahead and ask Justine to cook those rolls for Bernice. Yes, I thought it would help her get through her story. All 8 of us (me, Justine, Bev-lo, Bernice, Avis, Paula, Gina and you Melody) are looking like the Boo-Hoo sisters. Bernice cleared her throat and proceeded to tell her story. She turned her body toward Melody and her eye contact put Melody’s face in a vice grip. This would be the first Time the crew would learn Bernice tried to take her life as a child.

Bernice told of the day she was cleaning out the attic and she ran across some old newspapers. Underneath were adoption papers. She said she freaked out and went downstairs and start attacking everyone about how the family had all lied to her. Bernice couldn’t think about all the sacrifices her parents went through for her. She ran from the house and no one heard from her for hours.  When Bernice was found she was in an elevator with her wrist slit. My family got the called around 4:30 p.m.  We all rushed over to Barnes Hospital to see what was Bernice condition.  It was hard for me to think about killing myself but I was not in Bernice shoes. At the Time both Bernice and I was only 13 years old. I was so glad and thankful for my parents. Hey! I thought parents were parents no matter where they came from. When it was my turn to go in to see Bernice I had never seen so much machinery and tubing in my life. I was so scared.  All I could think about was How Could I Ease The Pain. That is one of my favorite records by Lisa Fisher. I have never prayed so hard in my life. Bernice looked like a little gray ghost and her arms were bruised from where the nurse had tried to find her veins. My parents were comforting the Davis family and I felt emotionally drained. It seemed too much to comprehend as I listen to Bernice tell what happened.

Bernice said the only thing she remembered is running and running. She didn’t remember stopping off getting any blades to hurt herself. She ran into an elevator and backed into a corner and the lights went out. It was hard for me to hold back the tears. Bernice said that morning she felt as though she was at the top of her game.  Her favorite place in the house was the attic.  She felt untouchable in her make-believe castle. Bernice curious mind leads her to open this big old trunk with dragons layered on the front and back side. The trunk’s top was so heavy she found a rod to prop the lid up.  As she began to dig there was a small jade box underneath the papers. When she opened the box and unfolded the papers. She became unglued. This couldn’t be true.  Bernice felt shafted. From the top of the attic to rock bottom, the elevator came crashing down fast.  She doesn’t remember having the blowout with her family. Anger can really do a lot of damage and thinking straight will not happen. Suicide is not the answer.  Opening up about her attempt to commit suicide was a big leap.  Something happened in her life that made her realize she could lose the most important people she loves.

All I wanted was for Bernice to heal but I knew it would take a long time.  It was Time for me to go in search of a support team. I was on a mad search for some really good peer buddies that could help Bernice get through her crisis.  Bernice anger isolated me but I had to give her some space to process what had happened. It took little brother Bobby getting hit by a car to snap her out of her I Nucleus World. Bobby got banged up pretty bad. His legs had gotten crushed and he suffered severe spinal injuries. Bobby would never walk again.  Bernice began to focus on Bobby’s care and I could see her getting back on the elevator on her way to the top. That is how Avis, Paula, Bev-lo, Justine, Gina, me and you Melody came together.  Bernice really took to Melody. It was all good!

Man, a lot of years have passed. Our crew got through it. We all have witnessed births, marriages, graduations, divorces, deaths all sort of life skills lesson.  Do you know anyone that has perfected the lesson of life skills?  No! These lessons are not to be perfect.  You can become very skilled, knowledgeable, or an expert in your field. They can become your greatest strengths and achievements. Look at Bernice accomplishments. She is a renown Psychologist and looks what we would have missed in our lives if she had been successful the day she attempted suicide. Look at all the people she has helped take the elevator ride to the top.

We all shared a common denominator. Some of the crew shared more. We all had adopted parents.  Bernice clinched Melody’s hand tighter.  “Are you ready to take the elevator ride to the top?”  Melody all teared up and the rest of the crew breaking down.  Bernice asks Melody,  “Will you marry me?”  I pulled out my comet can along with my wire hanger and began to tap them lightly. It took you guys forever.  Jaron is Melody’s son from a previous marriage. Melody found out she couldn’t have any children and Jaron was adopted.  Melody’s husband wanted his own kids.  Whatever the hell that means. Mr. I Nucleus Factor never excepted Jaron as his child.  Jaron is crazy about Bernice. This kid is so fortunate.  Jaron will have a wonderful set of parents.  Are you ready to take the elevator ride to the top?  Do not let your elevator crash to the bottom by not evolving and appreciating other people lifestyles. Of course, you know where the wedding will take place. 🙂

Self-Talk___Say It Out Loud!

What happens when you dish out those F’s? Do you have knobs on your mirror?  Baby get ready because the dirt is about to fly in your face.  If you throw shades on a low-grade get ready to duck your head.  I looked into the square box.  There were some words that didn’t describe me at all. What was my reaction? I threw my head back and laughed. It gets better. I recalled a song recorded by Christopher Williams that was perfect for my internal hard drive.  Are you ready for the YOUTUBE MOMENT? Hit It! I Talk To Myself when there ain’t no one to talk to. People ask me why I do what I do. Hell! It is a strategy for keeping your self-esteem intact when the haters pour on the hot wax. Bottom line, just remembers when you KNOW you have certain strengths and somebody send you an email, fax, text, FACEBOOK, and state those skills are nonexistence within you, this is what you tell them. Better yet, go the butt-naked mile and show them. I think the public use the word transparency.

In the morning when I arise there are moments in my life that I don’t like myself and I disagree with my thought processing. So when another person crosses my path and tell me they don’t like me or disagree with me I am ever so cool with that.  I think they are right on target. I am not tripping off of what they think about me. Developing a strategy to put me back in circulation without being down on myself is ever so important. There is nothing wrong with talking to yourself. As long as you are giving yourself positive feedback about what you can achieve.  Even when you fail to give yourself positive credit for trying the task.  Words such as stupid, dumb, and especially the word retarded should not be in one’s vocabulary. We will leave Anne Coulter with the word “retarded.”   It is one of her favorite words to call people. Who is Anne Coulter? Every minute of a person breath counts. I won’t waste my breath.

Talking to oneself is a tool for loneliness and can help you tighten up loose ends on your decision. Come along with me and sing The Staple Singers, Respect Yourself. It is Time to bellow out some positive self-talking dialogue. We can sing through the dialogue with Michael Jackson’s, “I’m Bad.” Are you ready to Ease On Down The Road with Stephanie Mills and listen to some motivational tapes by Tony Robbins or Les Brown?  Go treat yourself to a psychological sit in with Dr. Phil or a medical spinoff with Dr. Oz. When you gather up the strength to reject that whirlwind shopping spree or turn down that molting triple chocolate cupcake lace with homemade vanilla ice cream go on the VOICE and sing with Bon Jovi, Hallelujah, or an updated version of Hallelujah with Susan Boyle. Take a deep breath and exhale with BabyFace singing this is For The Cool In You.  Every small accomplishment carries its weight in gold and needs to be acknowledged. For one person it may be tying their shoe and for another person, it may be brushing their teeth. It is an achievement and it is all good. Can you say it with me?  “It is all Good.” You don’t need to tip-toe through the tulips. Go ahead and get your sprint on.  You Can Say It To Yourself Or Out Loud!  Self-talk is cool.  Going after the pros and cons in the mooch-o grande decision helps bring clarity to your choice. You are listening to your external hard drive and can hear what may be the best decision for you.  YE-AH!

Well, You know it makes me want to shout, kick my heels up, throw my hands up, throw my head back. Come on now! Don’t forget to say you will.  Those of you who have problems with your attention span can reel in your emotions, strengthen your communication, focus on your mental processing.  For Real! For Real! You are not crazy. Unless you found some way to separate yourself from yourself you will be living with yourself when everyone else splits the scene.  Mavis Staple has started singing “Respect Yourself ” again.  Put A Little Love In Your Heart and Talk To Yourself when there is no one else to talk to. People try to bring you down. Worst of all, most people don’t need other people to bring them down because they do a good job of bringing themselves down.  All negative feedback takes them clean out of the box.  Turn your mirror on and adjust those knobs for some positive Mirror Radio-Hope. This is the mental Selfie uplift without the iPhone. Okay! If you find it difficult to give yourself some Radio-Hope it is TIME to get a grand guardian who will help you cheer through the tough spots.

If constant testing would have been done by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) there would not be so many people wondering why they talk to themselves out loud.  NLD should have made the DSM5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders).   Individuals who are diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability) are auditory-verbal and process out loud all the time.  Giving Recognition to a hidden diagnosis, NLD is a developmental disability in which individuals demonstrate a mature vocabulary, rote memory skills, and excellent reading abilities. Children/adults can have difficulty interacting with other individuals, transitioning to new settings and working new changes (teachers, peers, associates etc.) and trouble with writing/fine motor coordination.  Reading skills are exemplary, abstract concepts need to be explained in detail because individuals with NLD have difficulty understanding metaphors, emotional nuances, multiple levels of meaning, and relationship issues. Descriptions of abstract concepts must be given simply and with patients.   If you want to give a real Impression along with Curtis Mayfield, concrete factual information is the narrative for We’re A Winner.  People with NLD are not EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED and never let anyone say boy you can’t make it because a feeble mind is in your way. No more tears do we cry because we have finally dried our eyes and we’re moving on up, moving on up. LAWD! Ham-Mercy we’re moving on up. Positively Positive!

Three areas are encompassed by NLD: Motoric (coordination), Visual-Spatial (Blind Mines Eye/can’t form visual images or gestalt impression/whole picture) and Social (English language is so abstract and have hidden meanings).  Social interaction is very easily misjudged and misinterpreted.  Awareness is brought to you just in case you see a person with no earplugs and no phone and talking to themselves. Don’t freak out it might just be the hidden disability with UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS whom the American Psychiatric Association (APA) failed to put on THE LIST.  The guy with the iPhone and the ear-plugs may not have anyone on the other end.  A good strategy for fitting in and not having people stare or calling you crazy.  Don’t be afraid. Go ahead and be Proud. Self-Talk__Say It Out Loud!

Haters, Players, and Dragon Slayers

I’m quite sure it was Katt Williams who said don’t hate the player hate the game. Now that it is 2015 this saying needs an update with an additional frame. Let’s take it a step further. Don’t hate the hater the game remains the same. Hating the hater will leave you emotionally drained.   The Hater is a Hater because they are never willing to change. Learn from the Hater and never forget from which you came.

Haters:

Never willing to cooperate but always ready to isolate.

Moaners, criers, and complainers never believe their disclaimer.

No fault of Accountability lacking integrity and credibility.

Haters never care how you feel because haters are out for the kill.

Always ready to instigate, never ready to investigate, only to manipulate.

Who are the killers to the bone that wants to rule and rock the throne?

If you are doing well Haters will send you directly to jail or hell.

Haters information is neither beneficial nor reliable and will always be deniable.

Haters will never admit they are wrong?  Are you ready for the dance and song?

Corruption, Bribery and Lies, Haters thinks it can all be justified.

Haters Hate!

Players:

Players can take a different path strolling down the avenue.

We saw contenders called out as pretenders smeared with manure residue.

Are you a competitor of the game or competing for your own recognition?

A team player passes the ball and will not get caught up in blind ambition.

We thought the game was in the bag when Jordan scored 60+ points.  What did it cost?

The sportsman played one hell of a game and the Chicago Bulls still lost.

It’s okay to shut out the external noise and focus on one’s success.

Think about the changes you can make but do not exclude the rest.

Athletes, actors, entertainers, contestants are all players.

Are you ready to step your game up and become a Dragon Slayers?

Players Play!  Here’s a Shout!  Don’t get Played out.

Dragon Slayers:

Know This! If you must insist a Dragon Slayer never quits.

No more campaigns,  rolled the dice, won it twice, 2 years left, and I am through with the Bull sh…

Back in the day, it was called a quest.

In the year of our Lord, 2015,  it is called a mission and you know the rest.  Who was put through every test?

The Haters tried to sue me, jail me, impeach me to destroy my legacy.

Change the game, put down the sword, pulled out the pen to put an end to the Haters fantasy. Welcome To My Reality.

To savor the flavor of the food it is all about the sauce.

An organizer willing to compromise, equalize, governing/executing remaining for 2 years more and you know who is the boss.

Write the rules, update your tools, get new strategies and convey to the last players.

The pen has become mightier than the sword.  A tool saved for last by the Dragon Slayer.

Dragon Slayers Slay and handle the business of the day.  There is the twinkle in the eye, a smile on the face but he doesn’t play. Okay!

Are you a Hater, a Player, or a Dragon Slayer?

Exercise For Life__PEACE

Are you still eating the leftovers from Thanksgiving? Are you full up to your neck? I bet that conversation around the Gobble Gobble table got pretty intense. Here we go! You haven’t seen some of your Outlaws for years.  Now you know WHY.  Wow! You mean to tell me you had to sit at the table and have a grateful Thanksgiving dinner with UNGRATEFUL A… people. They never contribute to the dinner except for criticism. This is the same crew if a family member dies they got all of these, “If I Were You” but they never want to contribute to the cause. All that tension builds up over the years and when a real volatile situation occurs what happens. You go out and release the Beast instead of initiating PEACE. Sooo here’s a Brain exercise to help you lose some of the UNGRATEFUL LUGGAGE you have toted around for years. Stop saying PEACE OUT. Start saying PEACE IN. In order to initiate PEACE, you learn to control the Beast within. Deport the people out of your life that doesn’t supply you with constructive criticism or explicit advice. DEPORTATION ANYONE!

So today on this Cyber Monday and many more Mondays to come we will begin our new exercise of ringing out the OLD and bringing in the NEW. Run and get your paper. Make sure you have a good pen or pencil so we don’t run out of lead or ink and become frustrated. Sometimes it is the little things like this that can break your train of thought. Sure the conclusion of your story is about to go south.   Are you ready?  What we are about to do is take the word PEACE and make an acronym to give some of our viewers the CONCRETE INFORMATION needed to help them build on their life skills of PEACE. Here we go!

P-Purpose: I am on a mission Baby! What is your Plan? If it is about FERGUSON, Justification is where we stand. (Raison D’ etre)

E-Excuses are not allowed for the Execution of a young black man.

A-Abolish the laws that do not exonerate the innocent and the deceased.

C-Complex information/abstract English left several persons to their own devices to figure it out which rendered a major defeat.

E-Examining a volatile crisis can very easily IGNITE the Beast and EXTINGUISH THE PEACE.

What does your PEACE represent? Once you spell it out you can exercise those words into your life and practice new life skills.  Over on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART, we process our information differently.  Some of us need a jumpstart to get us going in the right direction. A PICTURE IS NOT WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS especially if you do not have the rights words and the wrong information is given. This is WHY we get all the social rejection. We don’t get the picture especially not the WHOLE PICTURE.  Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego?  Where Is Waldo? I Spy. What are we looking for? Is there too much clutter to see what the PICTURE represent.  What happens when you cannot follow direction? Who is Carmen?  Who is Waldo? Who really is Michael Brown?  What happens when a person is left to their own devices. Can you draw the right CONCLUSION if it is not laid out CONCRETELY and EXPLICITLY?  What the opposite end of the spectrum did was INTENTIONAL and now we have FERGUSON. Did the Grand Jury get the right PICTURE?  Who does the Grand Jury Resemble?  Who IGNITED the Beast and EXTINGUISHED FERGUSON PEACE?

On the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART, we do not wish to be EXCLUDED.  It is hard to get the WHOLE PICTURE.  More power to you if you got a thousand words out of your PICTURE. Look what can happen to the PICTURE when you are misled. You will not see EYE TO EYE. When you look through your lens and view your PICTURE.  It takes a person’s life experience, exploring their environment, and developing friends/relationship.  Did we encounter a totally different PICTURE which affected our Decision Making Process?  It is the way one learns that will help a person not just retain information but help them understand the outcome or consequence of the situation. Wrong Words=Wrong Actions causes major INFRACTIONS. Refresh your memory and see what is the major struggle with people who are diagnosed with NLD (Nonverbal Learning Disability).

It just took one more thing after that TURKEY DINNER to take the E out of PEACE and made us EXPLODE.

Continue to build on PEACE.

P-Participate, Productivity, Positive, Power, Passion

E-Excellence, Explore, Excitement, Express, Expand

A-Acceptance, Accommodate, Advocate, Accomplish, Advise

C-Champion, Challenge, Conversation, Communicate, Change

E-Educate, Effective, Exercise, Eliminate, Explain

This is my Cyber Monday life skill lesson for today.

Is Doctor M.E.D. In The House?

I haven’t forgotten about the story you shared with your brother. I don’t mind sharing. I think this would be a great life lesson for the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART. In my day it was called TOUGH LOVE. Every child did not get the same program. For some odd reason the elders I was surrounded by could read your behavior. In my TIME the elders or the much older generation was highly respected and you listened to what they had to say.  The elders would state every child cannot tie their shoes.  So if the child couldn’t tie their shoe you would either look for another way to help them or get a different shoe.  Assume nothing, ask the questions and teach everything.  The elders would always say, “Every child cannot look and hold cheek and tongue.” This meant give eye contact, smile, and hold back their words. There was a strong sense of Mother’s Wit/humanness and the elders put out a lot of love and Time.  The frightening experience would be the elders would tell you something and it would appear to always happen.  Look out Nate Silver, Nate Cohn, and Sam Wang! The elders possessed an intuitiveness of Confident. Know yourself, Be Sure of yourself and Be really proud of yourself and this would help you climb the ladder of success. If you thought it was all about your IQ then you were wrong. The higher you climb the ladder of success one day you could wear PRADA and dress to impress. Going straight forward with IQ leaves you empty, scripted like a robot and staring down the throat of boringness. Would you like to be accompanied to the next Christmas party by the Untold Story Of The Prince Of Darkness?

On the opposite side of the spectrum, it is called Emotional Intelligence. Yeah, baby, all those people out there packed around their HARVARD, YALE, PRINCETON UNIVERSITY degrees along with all the other IVY LEAGUERS who were regarded as an expert. Hey, don’t get me wrong. I love the IQers when they can mix it and wear grey stuff.  Why was it so hard for all the Brilliant IQers to not have the decency or common sense to be a real D… human beings with feelings and emotions? What is wrong with kicking it with your friends and causing a commotion?  One cannot always be socially appropriate.   How in the hell did these people ever get promoted to the top of the class into high-powered position?  For some reason, they don’t know when to fold their deck of cards. Who committed an act of treason? Bite the bullet baby.  Who will be tough out of luck? We got real human beings coming on the scene. All of these contenders are rocking the BIG EI (Emotional Intelligence). Who said you couldn’t have your cake, ice cream and the rest of the pie. Smooth Operator revealed to the world IQ+EQ makes one well-rounded. It helps with your characteristics/traits and keeps you grounded.  Okay! Go ahead and go to the party with Putin. Dance with Mr. Stiff  Starch Shirt who never appears to cry. The next time Putin ask you out I’m quite sure you will think of a lie.  Contender Time!

JOE is definitely not out of date. Whooo! Did you see the BLING BLING in JOE’S eye?  We get this and we know WHY?  The way the Mack steps out the car and you know he enjoyed the ride. When loose lips fly people can truly relate. What bounces off of JOE’s lips it isn’t synonymous with HATE.  This Brother is representing the United States. Confidence is pouring all over the place.  JOE has chosen to throw his shoe in the race. Did you think EI (Emotional Intelligence) was trendy or just a waste?   IQ leaves a person very black and white. Time out of your job, leave the conversation behind, go grey, and have a date night.   Brother Bernie is a man who definitely gives credit where credit is due. Bernie has made it clear if you bash the Commander-in-Chief make sure Bush and Cheney get sued top with a cherry and jailed too. Bernie will let you know if you haven’t got a clue. The crisis with ISIS was dropped by the whole shoe. That’s right Boo, Bush and Cheney have the stench, poison and all of the residue. Sooo what do you think is true? I’m convinced there’s a hell-of-a-lot of evidence so our nation never needs to wonder or filter through the suspense.   Elizabeth comes on the scene as the wrecking ball bank crushing queen machine. She has a true heart, very spirited, and almighty self-esteem. Elizabeth comes off as the mom and nanny of next door. Pay attention to her glide and strut across the Senate floor. If Elizabeth weighs in it would make a huge dent. Her soul does not rock the leisure of ENTITLEMENT. In the Blue Hall Of Fame, there are many contenders with EI (Emotional Intelligence) game. Step up to the plate throw your hat into the ring and let the world know there is no fear and no shame.

Jonathan altered the game on the street. He said it was stupid to say I’m In It To Win It which only reveals the person true agenda. Winning is everything to the person and Emotional Intelligence goes on hiatus. What is so wrong with showing you care?  The IQ puts the person back out in front to once again get picked off while the analyst is saying there is no stronger contender than Hillary. The contender could use the other half of the equation. Will the nation arrive at the destination of another Iron Lady? Who really has the appeal of a grandmother? Who really takes on the face of the Iron Lady? Can you be a true leader without the combination of both? Will the people be able to relate?  Strong-willed is cool. I’m quite sure it would be nice to lean back in one’s easy chair and see the twinkle in the contender’s eyes and feel the calmness of chamomile tea every once in a while.

DR. M.E.D. this is where it gets really kind of sticky. When the Brother on the street looks just like Tricky Dicky. When charm and charisma float through the air. When you are In It To Win It and you really don’t care.  Did you peel back the banana hull to see if the person was sincere?  Was the person using their IQ advancing as the player of the year?  Lack of Emotion without Devotion just another grand old scheme. Trust was stolen, hearts were broken and only lies left to be redeemed. We have been down this path before and yes it was an ugly scene. The question is always asked, “Are you better off than four years ago?”   Many changes were made. The balance of IQ+EI  gave the nation hope. When you are looking through the lens of faulty perception you are dangling from a rope.   The opposite end of the spectrum has the opportunity to choose.  Struggling with Emotional Intelligence On the Flip Side Of the Chart can be the beacon of light to show a great leader who lacks this characteristic of EI will determine what they can lose.

I knew a young man who had it all. IQ, EI and straight up GQ. In this moment and TIME, he could have been  Eric H. or Barack O. I remember when he first got in trouble and he went to jail. I thought his incarceration would buy him TIME to get his act together and stay out of hell.  Well, this is what I was told. You spent your money and it will not redeem my soul.   Stop trying to cover up my dirty sins.  You keep reminding me of all of my wonderful qualities and traits. You just haven’t learned I can’t  hardly wait. To rob people of their dreams for believing in me.  As I looked over my shoulder I realized what a rotten person this Brother turned out to be.  He lived for danger, excitement, and intrigue. Hide your stash there goes your weed. To all the folks I just want you to know do not connect the last sentence to Barack O.  I could not understand for the life of me why this Brother had everything and he let it all go. He pointed it out I wanted him to change. He was happy being ruthless and running a criminal game. Life provided this Brother with all the skills to conquer and lead. Instead, he used his skills to make the hearts of those who trusted in him bleed.  Why didn’t this Brother want to succeed? He said it was his choice and he was quite pleased. The greatest lesson I had to learn was to peel back the hull and stop getting burned. Showing love and all the concern one must let go because you have exceeded your term.  Is DR. M.E.D. In The House?

 

Painted Me As The Enemy

Why would I stick my neck out?
Should I bother to come to your aid?

We are expendable and we’ll both get jacked.

Who really does have a spine?
Here lies the sword of the COMPANY’S mighty wedge?
What did the policies and procedures define?
I’ll be d..n! It’s GROVER NORQUIST pledge.

Did you read all of the reason?
JOHN BOEHNER would think he has the upper hand.
This list is an act of treason.
It was designed so we couldn’t take a stand.

A lot of hard work hours was put in.
Companies use all sorts of dirty tricks.
Turning you against me was a nasty sin.
They found your weakness so they thought they were slick.

The roads we have travel were long, hard, and rough.
We bumped heads, compromised, and discard what we didn’t need.
Anything that appears easy might get sort of tough.
A natural ingredient to help us both succeed.

The memories we have shared, Companies will try to strip away.
For years we have guarded one another against danger.
It is TIME to face off and get through this day.
Look very close. Do you think I am a stranger?

When we started work here years ago.
Our families broke bread together.
The money we made was not enough dough.
We made it and survive the stormy weather.

The Company promised you one hell of a deal.
An offer you just couldn’t resist.
After listening, you didn’t like their diabolical spill.
The plan ceased to exist.

Would you like to tell me more?
You thought there was a remedy.
The policy is called OPEN DOOR.
They PAINTED ME AS THE ENEMY.

ADVISORY ALERT:
Who is carrying 30 silver pieces around?
If you hear a jingle jangle stay away from this clown.
I don’t think you know what is about to go down.
Look over your shoulders, JUDAS is the one with the frown.
Make sure the FISCAL CURVE agreement is safe and sound. 🙂
