Get Real, Get Dirty, Get Actin’ !

SEE & BE SEEN2013, came too soon. A time when maturity is colliding with interwoven insecurities and instabilities, a time when i am becoming my own with my own life, my own set of rights and wrongs, i wonder if 2013 could have waited a little longer before popping into my life.

But, that is the reality of life. It’s harsh, it’s imperfect, it’s volatile and it’s brutal. People undeserving of goodness get all the good, those who lie, steal and cheat, murder and rape, deceit and manipulate seem to get all the best of life. But life is also beautiful, wonderful, peaceful, loving, joyous, celebrations all around, hope and dreams still alive in every corner. Success stories of people rising from rags to riches, families reunited, lost loves getting together, babies being born, sun…..well the sun is still shining the last time i looked.

I am now an orphan. Lost my mother to a reason that is still hard for my logical side to comprehend. But in that loss i gained much more, so even in death my mom gave me something. My understanding about money and people has evolved. I still hate some people passionately and love many others with the same ardor and passion, if not more.

More grey hairs, but am grateful for the hair !

At 33 still have a waistline of 29 inches and a belly that isn’t obscene. Technically still not a millionaire, but i wont stop trying. Debt’s..ah well, seems like it’s my most loyal friend. It’s never left me free from the time i was 19. But it’s ok, lots of it are manageable though some can be a bit annoying.

So what is 2013. It’s what it always has been from the moment i began life on this blue ball we call earth. It’s living, growing and experiencing whatever all the years have got to give me. Debts or none, deaths or none, alone or not,life happens. And it will keep happening even after your gone. Making it influential to those around you, is truly a gift that you leave behind to the living.

2013, is going to be the best year of my life. But so will 2014, 2015, 2016……………………

Live By Design.


A blog share from Paulo Coelho

Today, i would like to share something, something that makes me feel uplifted in  a way. The following are not

my own words, but they are copied directly from Paulo Coelho’s blog. An excerpt from his book, MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN ACCRA.



avatarWhat the future holds for you depends entirely on your capacity for love.

And for that, you must have absolute and total confidence in what you are doing. Don’t let others say: ‘That road is better’ or ‘That route is easier’.

The greatest gift God gave us is the power to make decisions.

The adventure of the days to come needs to be full of romance, because the world needs that; therefore, when you are mounted on your horse, feel the wind on your face and enjoy the sense of freedom.

But don’t forget that you have a long journey ahead. If you surrender totally to the romance of it all, you might fall.
If you don’t stop occasionally to let both you and your horse rest, your horse might die of thirst or exhaustion.

And precisely at the moment when everything seems to be going well and your dream is almost within your grasp, that is when you must be more alert than ever. Because when your dream is almost within your grasp, you will be assailed by terrible guilt.

You will see that you are about to arrive at a place where very few have ever set foot and you will think that you don’t deserve what life is giving you.
You will forget all the obstacles you overcame, all that you suffered and sacrificed. And because of that feeling of guilt, you could unconsciously destroy everything that took you so long to build.

That is the most dangerous of obstacles, because renouncing victory has about it a certain aura of sanctity.

But if a man understands that he is worthy of what he has struggled so long for, he will realise that he did not get there alone and must respect the Hand that led him.



Yeah! I am neither African American or named Jackson, but that movie had one key thing that got me. ACTION. Life is not about us sitting on our ass’s es wishing that things were different. There are so many charlatans out there who sell this and do very well surprisingly. 

Today’s generation of people are so used to having everything, that the moment they don’t have some material thing that will give them the significance for however short it is, they break down. So many new mental and emotional problems, AAAD, ADDS, ADIA. My diagnose is simple they all have one disease, the L A Z Y. Symptoms range from having an addiction to stupid reality tv shows and believing that the only way to be successful is if you are on TV. 

Today is a time when people are so overly vain about their faces, butts and boobs. MEN and WOMEN! 

So like action Jackson  i have decided to make this whole year and years after that to be the action year. Am not gonna sit around doing nothing about it, am gonna make things happen. For me and the world. SO kapoww ya’ll!

Get actin’!


2013. That what it should all be about. The last 3 decades of my highly eventful life has changed me in ways that i can’t even begin to fathom. Maybe it’s life’s way of screwing with you. You want something badly enough. NO! You not gonna get that. You really don’t want something, here you go, have this. No amount of praying, having faith in your religion’s deity or reading “The Secret” or copious amounts of metaphysics and pseudoscience will change that. If it ever did, it’s because it was a mathematical outcome, the law of averages.

2012 was a bitch. I will not lie about it. If 2012 was a living being, i’d beat the crap out of it. But it wasn’t. But it did teach me one thing. You are fully responsible for how you want to live your life. It’s never really about the money. Bill’s and expenses will never end, even untill after you are dead. So big whoop. Do your best, fret not. If ever you feel overwhelmed. Stop. Change course for a while, get ideas outside of your own head. Then continue to move, and move in only one direction. Forwards. Forgive.Forget and move man. Move like you have never moved before. Because in the end, that’s all life is. Your either moving or your dead.

I’d like to leave the first blog of the year with a quote,

“If in life you keep coming to the same circle no matter how hard you struggle, it’s a damned good time to change your course”

Happy New Year ,2013 is gonna be awesome because am gonna move it with me!
