What's In Your Spirit? (The Three Minute Conversation)

As 2012 approached I kept trying to figure out what I would write my first blog of the year about. These days I work so hard to surround myself with impactful people who do extraordinary things that finding just one to focus on was becoming too difficult. So I thought I would just be still and wait for the perfect opener for 2012...and so I did. I had a three minute conversation with a friend this morning and unbeknown to her she spoke a word to me that resonated and motivated me to write my first blog of 2012. Here we go...I hope you enjoy.

"Your destiny is directly tied to your spirit" she says. At this point it doesn't matter where she heard it first it only matters that she repeated it for my ears to hear. It is all mine now...and now your's as well. :-) Let me be honest. Unfortunately I am a dreamer. I say unfortunately because realistic people hear me speak and think I'm nuts. Believe me that's totally fine with me. The crazier you think I am the more I know I am following the path that has been designed specifically and so perfectly for me. Let me stay focused! Anyway, I know that God wouldn't give me the spirit or put anything in my heart without giving me the means and gifts necessary to see it come to fruition. Yes, I am dreamer but more than that I am a believer. I believe in him, I believe in me, and I believe in you.  This goes beyond 2012, 2013, or even 2014 this is about what makes you happy, what makes you stronger, and what makes you, you.

I'm not going to write a long blog connecting a bunch of words together just to simply say sometimes we are searching and reaching for things that we already have been given. Take the time to trust that it's already yours. You just have to believe it, claim it, and own it.

Your spirit sets that tone for your life! What's in your spirit?

Happy 2012 & Beyond,

* My apologies I know this blog is a little different from my normal postings but I had some things in my spirit I had to get out* :-)

Make An Impact...Support Our 2011 Holiday Initiative

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

During this time of year we are all reminded of our many blessings that we are thankful for. iMP2ACT Foundation is extremely grateful for a great 2011 and everyone’s support this year so we want to end the year being a blessing to families who are without the simple things this season.

For this holiday season iMP2ACT Foundation will be providing gifts for The Salvation Army’s Boys & Girls Club Angel Tree Program and we are asking our network of friends, business professionals and committed supporters for assistance in providing toys for children this year.  Times have been difficult for everyone these past few years but I am hopeful that we can all find a way to give even in own overwhelming circumstances. Thank you in advance for your commitment to making an impact on the many families in Maryland who are in need.

For weeks I had been anticipating Lotus Flyy, Inc's 1st Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Happy Hour and on Tuesday, October 25th the day had finally arrived. Although it was late October it felt more like April and as you know when you mix a beautiful sunshine, wonderful warm breezes, and a great cause you know you're in for a fabulous evening. This event was no exception.

Founder Larissa Walters greeted, embraced, and showed each and every person to walk through those doors of the Reserve Restaurant in Baltimore to support her inaugural event the kind reception that only a gracious and blessed host could. This Breast Cancer Awareness event was especially meaningful for Larissa because she is the daughter of Brenda Carol Walters who passed away on March 24th, 2010 after a nine year battle with breast cancer. And in an effort to honor her mother's memory and continue her legacy, her family started an Endowment at her Alma Mater Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester NY.  

This was indeed a well-planned and thought out event with the perfect ambiance, a great crowd of friends, family, and supporters, food and drink specials, wonderful raffle prizes (that were all donated), beautiful cupcakes, and a professional artist painting (painting was beautiful and auctioned off) throughout the evening. But with all of that being said the best part of the night was looking around the restaurant and seeing there wasn't an empty seat, not a space unfilled, not a smile missing and not an untouched heart. This was indeed a moment for Larissa Walters and her family to be proud of. A moment I am certain Brenda is proud of.

How do you make an impact? You make an impact when you give even when it hurts.

Lotus Flyy Inc. is a Non Profit Organization dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness through Education. Additional information can be found at www.facebook.com/LotusFlyy. Be sure to LIKE the page!

New Film Thunder Soul Moves Soul

Two days ago I had the pleasure of attending a private screening of the documentary Thunder Soul, executively produced and heavily endorsed by Jamie Foxx.  Please note that I am by no means a movie critic and this is not a movie review; however the prevailing themes throughout Thunder Soul truly project how one life can profoundly impact the lives of thousands.   While sitting amidst the packed Charles Theater in Baltimore, Maryland hoping no one could see me patting my eyes dry, I reflected on the people that I know would benefit from seeing this film.  For a second I drifted away and imagined how if they were present we would all be patting our eyes dry from the clear, bold, powerful messages that screamed from the new film Thunder Soul.  This movie will touch the soul of all musicians, teachers, dreamers and anyone who uses their profession to shape and influence others.

This entry is a small plea for all of us to support art that inspires, cultivates, captures, and reminds us that whatever our heart desires to achieve, can be achieved. Thunder Soul is an example of how ones motive to impact lives can translate into actions that mirror ones motive.  In other words, whatever goals you meditate on you will achieve.  If your goal is to teach, learn, grow, build, create, and encourage more than likely you will succeed at teaching, learning, growing, building, creating and encouraging. Thunder Soul reminds us that leaving your legacy is so much more than what you physically did here; your legacy also encompasses how you made the people you touched feel. That is truly making an impact! Please support  the new film Thunder Soul when it comes to theaters. Your soul needs it.

Special thank you to The Baltimore Urban League, The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, and Sonje' Productions. For more information and to find out when it will be released near you please visit thundersoulmovie.com.

Father’s Really Do Rock!!!

A few months ago while attending an event at Morgan State University there was a man sitting at the table beside me that was getting a lot of attention. Every so often I would look up and there would be a group of people engrossed in conversation with who I now know as Mr. Kashaun Cooper, Sr., founder and CEO of the organization Father’s Rock. I always meet so many wonderful people and learn about so many great organizations but there was something about the passion, eagerness,   faith and determination Mr. Cooper displayed that had me just as intrigued as the groups of people that were huddled around his modest information table.  The mission is simple the Father’s Rock organization is created to strengthen the presence of fatherhood in the community by recognizing and appreciating proactive and active father’s and father figures.

During this 2011 Father’s Day weekend I had the opportunity to see the Father’s Rock organization and Mr. Cooper put their mission to work and attend their “First Annual Father’s Day Celebration.” With their partner Yorkwood Elementary in Northeast Baltimore, Father’s Rock did everything their mission was created to do, STRENGTHEN, RECOGNIZE and APPRECIATE fathers in the community in a way these fathers  and father figures never had nor had I’ve never seen.  Nothing was omitted from this celebration Mr. Cooper presented fathers with awards from the Father’s Rock organization, the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office, Veteran’s Affairs Liaison Mr. Larry Nunley, J.D. presented fathers with citations, there was also great food, music, games for the family, and plenty of fellowship.  BRAVO to Father’s Rock for making an impact in OUR community.
