Daily Tune-Up: You Be You

tuneupdailyTuesday, June 16

Why are we so afraid of what people think of us? They’re going to judge us anyway, so we might as well be ourselves and let them think what they want.

Confront this fear today. Be yourself. Spill your truth. Let you be you.

Daily Tune-Up: Closer To Yes

tuneupdailySaturday, June 13

When practicing transformation, don’t be afraid of failing. We actually reveal more Light for ourselves and for the world when we fall and then get up again. If we never fall, we stay exactly where we are. And while time may move us forward physically, spirituality we never advance. Failing may batter our self-esteem, triggering depression or anxiety, which are natural reactions to a difficult situation. But respond by being kind to yourself.

Today, don’t beat yourself up. In fact, celebrate moments of falling. Every no brings you closer to a yes.

Daily Tune-Up: Outside of Yourself

tuneupdaily7Thursday, April 23

According to Kabbalah, when you find yourself gripped by anxiety, you’re thinking only about yourself. Reactive behavior distances you from your soul, so perform a sharing action. Sharing connects you back to the 99%, and automatically the Light that flows from this realm displaces your fear just as a light bulb displaces darkness from a room.

Today, one way to deal with moments of fear and anxiety is to shift into sharing mode. Look for someone to help. Take an action outside yourself.

Daily Tune-Up: Determine Your Reality

tuneupdaily3

Tuesday, April 14

If thoughts determine our reality, why is it we can’t think a happy thought and fly away to Neverland any time we want? Because we are prone to the domino effect of negative thinking – one negative thought produces countless others. All we need is one tiny self-doubt to start the chain reaction. 

Today play detective on yourself. Stakeout your negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Determine your reality.

In other Common related news….  Today, CNN released a few thoughts from MR. UMC in regards to the future of hip hop and the impact of Barack Obama:

“I think hip-hop artists will have no choice but to talk about different things and more positive things, and try to bring a brighter side to that because, even before Barack, I think people had been tired of hearing the same thing,”.

Ugly Sweater Party – Why Wasn’t I Invited?

These A-holes had a grand ole time and completely forgot about me whatever!

Honestly, I don’t even know these people, but I was happy to see someone document their potential blackmail material because ‘No Cameras!’ is rule #1 for my Annual Paisley Gala.

If you are looking for something fun to do for the holidays then this is something I highlyrecommend.   Some will have to try hard to find something to wear while others will just blend – IYKWIM…

It was such a nice house too, but in good southern tradition we are going to do our part to help you out.  We are going to pass the offering plate this next Sunday at church for you and hopefully we’ll be able to send some baked goods your way as well.  Of course, we do have to collect a 45% administrative cost for the offering, but it’ll be a’ight

Now you may want to rekindle that debauchery you had with Mr. Foxx b/c you know he’s coming out with an album this week…

Don’t Eat The Grits, Y’all

Velveeta grits are loaded with calories!  I’m wondering if Jamie Spears may have shared his Southern Belle’s recipe with K-Fed while they were all shackin’ up together…?  Maybe it’s from the heartbreak, divorce, alimonies, antidepressants, munchies, or loneliness but the boi has picked up a few this year. 

Then:

Now:

Is it karma?  What do you think?
