10 Things We Need To Let Go

happiness

Everybody wants to be happy, but only few are brave enough to put in the work to be so. It’s not some magical feeling that finds its way to your life.

You need to be self aware in order to even begin to find happiness. It really starts with you. You need to get to know yourself, what you’re looking for, what you like, what you don’t like, things like that.

There’s a lot of learning involved before you can say you are truly happy. It’s a constant process, not some prized possession you leave in a trophy case.

Conquering Through Fear — November 16, 2015

Conquering Through Fear

Though  my heart goes out to all those that were killed or injured in the latest attack in Paris, I’ve tried to keep in theme of my blog by continuing business as usually with regards to content; the internet is already saturated without me adding to the list. In addition to that, no intention to sounding insensitive, but  acts of Terrorism are being carried out on a daily basis. The difference is, some are high profile, like the one in Paris and others are not, Kenya, Beirut,Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt and Libya, etc.

Terrorism persists because terrorism works. Terrorism works because we let it.

Taking A Week Off From Facebook Could Make You Happier…..

Quitting Facebook for a week could make you happier, according to the latest study detailing the negative affects of social media.

A study carried out by the Denmark-based Happiness Research Institute showed that people who avoided the social network for a short period of time were happier than their Facebook-using counterparts.

A total of 1,095 people are divided into two groups, with one group giving up Facebook for a week while the other group continued to use it as normal.

After a week, 88% of the people who hadn’t been on Facebook described themselves as “happy”, compared with 81% of the other group.

Michael Rios

Yesterday, I was left with a comment by EttaD in response to WHEN THINGS GO SOUTH -BLOG  which was about how regular Bloggers like you and I became famous. Her comment is as follows.

This is all great, but how do you generate and income from blogging? If is by luck like becoming a Hollywood star, you have to first be discovered? Or Simply have a gazillion followers?

Crafting the Perfect Playlist for Productivity — November 4, 2015

Crafting the Perfect Playlist for Productivity

Nothing has more of a negative impact on my workday than forgetting my headphones. Like most people, music is a huge part of my life. I listen to the most music while I work, sifting through playlists, on what seems like a never-ending search for the perfect tunes to keep me in the zone.

We spend so many of our days at work, and so much of our workdays in front of a screen, that music has become indispensable in keeping us happy, motivated, and productive.

But are all songs made the same? Or are there perfect tracks for certain tasks?

How Blacks have Irish Last Names — October 19, 2015

How Blacks have Irish Last Names

This is so true, Africans have claimed slavery as their own. However, there have been many others who suffered in slavery.

Tribeca Chronicles

Ever wonder how a lot of African Americans have Irish last names? Is not because of Irish slave owners, no erase that foolishness……don’t think Gone With The Wind and the O’Hara plantation. What a lot of people don’t know is that Irish were slaves too, hundreds of thousands were sent to work in the West Indies and they blended with the black slaves thus we have Irish names like McFadden, McDonalds, etc. white-slave65a

Irish descendants

They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.
Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had…

Know Thyself — October 14, 2015

Know Thyself

If you think about it, as we spend our days, as we live our lives, we meet people, make acquaintances, make friends. Some of these people stay with us for only a short period of time while others are around us for longer periods of time, but there is one person – and one person only – that you get to spend every single minute of your life with. And that one person is YOU. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. So the idea of today: you might as well get to know yourself.
