Me: a shared interpretation that coexist by the acknowledgment of you and I, based solely on the outward characteristics that I display.

Myself: Who I believe to be as a result of cultural, societal and environmental impact. Thus, collectively embracing and filtering through the experiences of life, opinions and acceptances.

You: You are a reflection of collective thoughts, actions and displayed personality traits others or I perceive and accept to be true, but often manipulated by the shadows of insecurities or fear.

If this is true even somewhat, It beckons the question, who’s reflecting who? Does it explain the cliche “beauty is in the eye of the beholder?” Does it shed light on who we look up to, dislike or model in behavior?

This is why It’s so vitally important to love yourself, because to truly love others and become the greatest version of yourself, you must first embrace your worth!

Otherwise, your perceptions of negative self will reflect upon the world, the society in which you live and the people closest to your dreams, goals and lifestyle.

In short, do you want the attraction of abundance, success and or acceptance? Then change any form of negative reflections from within and start by loving yourself first, not money, nor power or the control of others. Upon this you can faithfully build and receive upon your blessings. Do not thwart the very purpose of your existence.

This is but one of many reasons we’re instructed to “love thy neighbor” (Matt 22:39 KJV) and to “do unto others, as you’d have them do unto you.” (Luke 6:31 KJV)

With that said, if one’s actions, displayed characteristics or personality traits are truly a reflection of self, then the world is not to blame, but rather the enemy from within i.e. me, myself and I not you, they or them. In this, the law of attraction can throughly be explained within the reflection of one’s self worth.

To be awakened, is far more frightening than your worst nightmare clawing into reality. Being enlightened doesn’t equate to a leisurely walk in the park. What we believe is love, couldn’t be farther away from the truth and money is without doubt, the second greatest lie. The law of attraction is the dangling of a golden carrot, yet serves great purpose and mindfulness is an internal stroll within the valley of the shadows. The more you learn the less you know, until being becomes the precedence of your life. Awake; quietly.

“Reggie was here! aka or bka fear!” 

Did you know the shortest distance between you and the barrier of your fear, perception or wall, is forward straight through? To stop and ponder the shear greatness of its height, darkness of depth or vastness of width only beckons worry, which then becomes the mass of one’s perceived reality.

Make yourself small, submit within the humbleness of your breath and walk through the darkness of manifested doubt. In this begins the filtration of the spirit, passing through the valley of the shadow of your deepest fears. Heed not your feet, lest the mind begins to wonder. And remember the promise, for on the other side awaits the light of glory.

Otherwise, peace be still until the calling of your heart screams so loudly, that it becomes the clarity of your spirit. Rise, rise and rise again just as you are! Now walk, stumble or crawl into the light of your created purpose. 

Know this to be true, being once upon seemingly an eternity “I was here!” Said my message on the wall, but by the grace of God’s mercy, not for long.

You have 24 hours to call and share a heartfelt conversation with each and everyone of your social media contacts/friends (separately)! Don’t leave a message, utilize interpersonal communication!

1.) Start with family members
2.) Friends
3.) Neighbors
4.) Coworkers
5.) Members of groups, church’s or the like.
6.) Those you’ve accepted from other countries.
7.) Lastly, the accepted requests just because they friended you or you friended them for shear numbers sake (i.e. “like for like! Help me reach 1000’s subscribers, followers or friends!)” GO!

Reality check🧐

Is it really about connecting with long lost friends, acquaintances/family or did the freedom of one’s social interest manifest into something more speculative? And try not to justify if you’re activity on social media comes with strings attached.

My 6 of 7 rule of thumb for the social psychological construct of media manipulation.

1.) I’m not paying for ads controlled by a so called algorithm, in which to continuously bombard my “friends” or family with marketing products, i.e. “for $31.00 you can reach up to 2,000 ppl. with this paid ad!” or “for $29.00 you can get a guaranteed 1,000 followers!
2.) I DO NOT accept friend requests for status, ideological or ego sake! Again, “I’m not looking for followers” to fund my ambitions. My purpose is not to entertain, distract or take from people. Thus, social media is not my spiritual, mental or moral support center (no entourage or cheerleaders needed).  
3.) I will never share my most intimate of goals, life choices, prayers or breakthrough ideas on any social media platform; period!
4.) I’ll only share what God puts on my heart to inspire, intrigue or motivate others looking for humbled truth or unbiased encouragement.
5.) My opinions are mine alone in which to develop, share with thought leaders, strategize, meditate, pray over and align properly within spiritual/biblical wisdom. This as opposed to subjecting myself to the heterosuggestive onslaught of controlled debates, persuasions and media manipulation.
6.) I will not judge, use sarcasm, ridicule or openly challenge a person, group or page for their personal or factual perspectives regarding rhetorical matters of worldly propaganda.

7.) 😆

So have you made any calls yet? Or did the autosuggestive barrier of personal opinion, rear its head to prevent a wake up call, revealing the REAL challenge!

*Here’s the thing, social media isn’t just about you, one’s celebrity status or kind heartfelt intentions of connectivity. It’s more about the manipulative focus of mass data retrieval for marketers and all hidden under the guise of 3rd party interests. Yes! It’s the world we live in but my goodness, are we that blind not to see that it’s our children that will suffer the most from this generations need to be seen, accepted or ego-massaged? Point is, our prayers are for God. Our hearts is for our families and those of need. And lastly, you have their number right? If they’re really friends; give them a call!

What did you expect? 

One’s expectations doesn’t guarantee the fruition of one’s hopes and desires.

Don’t accept people for who they are, If you’re not willing to deal with the consequences of their results or actions. 

A man is not a man, if he’s not the man of your dreams. Nor is the body of a woman, if he’s not in love with her soul.

“Look deeper than insecurities and maybe you’ll find, wisdom in choices are reflective of one’s mind. Raise the bar! Don’t stop, don’t settle for less, but know this requires; your absolute best.”

If a man or woman says “you complete me,” tread carefully! Although cute an romantically understood, this old schooled movie mentality has fooled many innocent hearts. In other words, yesterday’s romantic afterthought may be an indicator or sign of denial “in need.” Furthermore ending up as your today’s reality drama. Something to honestly consider, either way it’s your cup to fill or empty. Think about it.🤔


How can two become one, if both glasses are only filled halfway?😉

*Seek and you’ll find!

The diligent road to success, inspiration and happiness is far less traveled than most people realize. Why? Because those who follow, often becomes stuck behind the inflated ego’s of another’s destined purpose.

God didn’t create you to become a follower of other people’s success or ideas thereof, nor by the worldly standards of idolatry. You were embodied to wonderfully express the best version of yourself within God’s favor. 

I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to follow that which inspires, but it’s imperative to know when to get off the train! In this, people can discover, rediscover and blaze their own trails to personal success.

This is why as an author, chef and motivational speaker I’m NOT looking for followers, but rather believers!

With that said, 

Believe in yourself! 

Believe in a higher power!

Believe in your spouse, family or friends who could greatly benefit from your positive input.

Believe there is special purpose in your life

until it manifests as evident.

Lastly, believe in hope, love and prayer, especially during the difficulties and circumstances of life.

Call to action! 

Do you know someone who’s struggling with belief, personal success or positive lifestyle change?
