Political Values For Sale?

SPECIOUS OR REAL Every time I hear that word “values” I immediately think money$, a commodity, something… anything of value that can easily be translated/or converted into money. But in the word has taken on a different connotation, it has been politicized, has gradually wormed its way into socio-political discourse and narratives… Not necessarily a good thing, as certain people, especially politicians, have essentially appropriated the term and are using it as a weapon against in the voices of reason. And it’s especially evident in this era of people movement across the globe, with finding themselves in countries where learning …

Is it time for you to try something new?

What’s New? Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and we are fearful of stepping out of our comfort zones. The only problem with that is if we stay where we are because of fear we become stagnant and our personal growth ceases. Trying something new may feel scary for you but that’s okay, you just have to do it scared. I recently started doing a kickboxing workout. I had no idea what I was doing when I started and I probably looked ridiculous, but after a few months I could tell that I was improving, and getting stronger with …

The Dems are playing with fire but it will not be Trump who gets burnt

Impeachment—The act of desperation that may lead to Ruination It has become apparent that the Democrats are seemingly in desperate need of guidance before their eventual riddance. Do they really believe that an impeachment just before a general election is the correct thing to do, or the right way to go morally and politically? There they are fully convinced that with President Donald Trump’s call to his Ukraine counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, they have him exactly where they want him. We have all travelled down that road before. The Russia probe was supposed to terminate in impeachment. It did not. Claims …

The Politics of Immigration

Whenever the subject of immigration is brought into the political arena and discourse, a whirlwind of discussion (not always civil, and in fact always contentious) is inevitable. Only because throughout the course of this national election there will be heated moments as people discuss the merits of immigration, as they state and stake their positions, standing their ground as it were. And so it will be and continue to be as this 2019 federal election cycle plays out. Still a particularly hot topic across Western Europe, with record numbers of emigrants risking their lives, crashing land borders, or washing up …

Chapters

You decide how your next chapter will read… Your story has many different chapters, so one bad chapter in your life doesn’t mean that your story is over. One bad chapter doesn’t mean that you throw away the whole book, just like one bad season in your life doesn’t mean that you throw in the towel and just give up. Your past doesn’t have to define your future; you’re not a product of your circumstances, you are a product of your choices. So… choose wisely. We are all a work in progress. Life challenges are inevitable and figuring out your …

Title: There are good times and seasons vs. wicked times and seasons.

Indeed, God created both times and seasons. But I want you to be aware that there is a wicked devil who can work in the realms of the spirit to change and manipulate your time and your season. Satan’s name was once Lucifer, and he was very close to God. Before he was thrown out of heaven to Earth, he enjoyed a rare closeness to God. One of the benefits of this closeness was a deep understanding of how God operates in times and seasons. After Satan’s fall, he was able to manipulate men’s times and seasons for evil; especially …

Stop Comparing And Start Creating…

“The only person you should try to be better than is who you were yesterday.” – Unknown When we compare ourselves to others and envy what others have it robs us of our inner peace. And it’s almost impossible to find true contentment when we are continually comparing our selves and our lives to other people. You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing and you don’t have to have what everyone else has to be happy. It’s so easy to compare so many areas of our lives to others, but that eventually becomes a never ending internal …

IMPACT: A time for change

What is change? Change is the act or process of making radically different shifts. It means to transform, transfer, and substitute or to make a definite shift from one state to another. It is the act of leaving one condition for another. It is a constant factor in life. Change is integral to life itself. If changes were to cease, so would your life. Today, many are stagnated in their individual families, businesses, corporate and social lives because they refuse to embrace changes. It is time to accept that we are all progressively changing. Even if your situations may not …

Canadian Government Proposes Improving Black Health By Addressing Mental Health In The Community

The issue of mental health is not only taboo among Blacks, but also well hidden, as many of us regard mental illness as a “White person’s disease.” The World Health Organization stated that around 450 million people currently suffer from the conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill health and disability worldwide. www.who.int/whr/2001/media_centre/press_release/en/. Prevalent within our communities are misconceptions and misconstructions around what mental illness means, and in addition anxiety, depression and other disorders. The degradation and humiliation surrounding mental illness is certainly cumbersome, as Black folks hold the belief that seeking professional help is a sign …
