Today was an amazing day and I’m gonna tell ya all about it. First, the sun decided to show itself today, which was great. Not exactly a piece of Florida, but 61 degrees wasn’t bad. Isn’t this suppose to be the South?
Anyhooo, I’m a SoFlo chick so I haaaaad to get out and enjoy the weather. I ran a quick errand and then surprised my brother. LOL…he was so shocked.
He was ecstatic to learn that I’m back in town for good. I spent a little time with him and his family. I’ll get pictures of them and share with you guys on another post.
Stopping by my brother’s crib turned out to be a dual purpose because I needed more ginger and coconut water for my detox green smoothie tomorrow and sure enough…he had it and supplied my need. Brothers ROCK!!
I had to go home and work on my secret project. Don’t worry…I’ll share that with you, but not now. Then my evening was capped off by hitting the streets with my friend Chris. We attended a T-Shirt launch called “I am…truth, love, and compassion”. We got in a little late, but not too bad. It was cool.
The launch party took place at Moods Music in Little 5 Points. Love that place. I took a picture with the owner, Darryl. He has a maaad selection of specs, all types of music, novelty shirts, jewelry, EVERYTHING eclectic. Yeah…that’s gonna be one of my hang out spots for sure.
Anyhooooo…getting back to the point of the launch…Coleman G. Howard is a mentor to young men and so much more. Check out his website, http://www.colemanghoward.com. The “truth, love, compassion” movement is exactly what we need in today’s society and it’s growing. Being in a room with folk who are inspired to make change one person at a time was enlightening and time well-spent. It was a new kind of vibe that I was diggin.
It also gave me a great idea. I am many things to people that I meet and know. One thing that I always hear people say about me is that I’m an “encourager”. As I was sitting listening to why Coleman started the “truth, love, compassion” movement, I thought, “maybe i can start a t-shirt line as well”. I have a few quotes under my belt that inspire and encourage.
Amidst all that’s going on in the world that is depressing, sad and frustrating, we could all use some encouragement and inspiration…especially for our young people. Novelty shirts have always been my favorite thing to wear…so I figure instead of standing on the sidelines, why not be apart of the solution in some way. Be on the look out for a t-shirt line from yours truly adorned with my inspirational quotes.
I made great contacts tonight and will be in talks with some folk this week. Hmmm…although I’m still on the hunt for a steady income job, if I play my cards right, I may be working for myself sooner than I think. Ha! We’ll see…
