Bro. James, along the lines of what you are saying is a quote from the movie I saw last night, "Brian Banks," ... “ALL YOU CAN CONTROL IN YOUR LIFE IS HOW YOU RESPOND TO LIFE”

Are there ever days when you lose control and don't hit the mark that you strive for? For example, do you ever lose your temper (hmmm, it's interesting that it's worded that way..."lose") and how do you recover from it?

it is a daily struggle. i get up and meditate and lay out my goals for that day.
i take stock at night and see what i need to correct. it's hard but it gets easier.

i have not lost my temper in a minute but fools be steady trying me.

if i can see it as another test i can step away quickly.
we can retrain ourselves. advertisers do it to us all the time.
that's what therapy is all about.

humans are the most malleable of animals.

"when you know better you do better" "each one teach one"
the guides are there for us. we just need to follow them.

Now as for that word Ni-ger well, I once saw this show on TV titled You know you are a redneck when: and it appeared to be well received by a lot of white country folks who wore or accepted that term (Redneck) as a badge of honor. However I'm pretty sure that there were folks who didn't want that term used in reference to themselves because of the offensive and derogatory implications.. The same is true for the word Ni-ger which some black folk seem to embrace as a term of endearment.
Well, I'm going to use another word and that word is Fa-got. Which by the way before it became so offensive actually meant (a bundle of sticks or twigs bound together as fuel).
Now what if there were certain members of the Gay community who decided that they would use this word as a term of endearment in ways of expression.
Something like;
Yo, what's up my fa-got? My fa-got is down with me. That's my fa-got you talk'in bout there bro. or Yo Yo Yo, my fa-got and me hold'in it down son. Yo dog, why you sweat'in my fa-got like that? and etc. I believe that you get my drift. How well do you think that would be received? Exactly!

Now there is a time and place for everything but personally I don't think that this is the time nor place for the word Ni-ger.. But hey, that's not my call, it's yours.
Bottom line is: What does your heart tell you?

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
