Week 21-Saying Goodbye

Tonight we had the Family Hour for my cousin Mr. Roderick Wayne Walker. This was not an event I had planned to attend, however when my mother called me this morning and asked if I would be going, I felt obligated to go.

Saying goodbye to Roderick, is something I have been doing all week in my own way, which from time to time involved shedding a few tears. Being around family members & his friends would require me to keep a ‘stiff upper lip’. No crying in public!

I arrived at the funeral home and was directed to the chapel. I smiled and nodded to all who were there. I made my way to the casket. He looked good.  His face was full, beard & mustache filled in and neatly trimmed. He was wearing his Cowboys jersey, holding a football. Roderick was a true Blue Dallas Cowboy fan.

Winnfield Funeral home had done a great job for my cousin. I smiled a loving smile and nodded my head in approval as I fought back the tears.

As we prepare for your body to be returned to the ground, I know that your spirit lives on in eternity.

I love you, goodbye.

Week 20–1961-2014

On February 28, 2014, in the local newspapers, the obituary of Mr. Roderick Wayne Walker  will appear.  Mr. Walker was my cousin and my best friend growing up. My friend was diagnosed with Cancer of the Liver in Autumn 2013  He was 52 yrs. old.

It’s been a long night.

How many Autumns do I have left? 68, I’m going for a long, strong life.

Fill up & fill in that DASH between the time you got here & the time you leave.

Enjoy The Journey-

Week 19–Presence

In the video clip Mark shared this week I had the opportunity gain some insights on body language.

My body language speaks volumes about what I truly feel & think about myself.

Without thinking about it  I create a presence when I enter a room. I cause others to stop, if just for a moment, and do a double take or ask if I am in charge.

My presence conveys a power that is foreign to many.  My presence is full of joy and authority. My presence is full of generosity. My presence creates an atmosphere of ‘Great Expectations’ who’s measuring stick may at times, be tough to live up to.

For years I have wondered why some people I come across instantly dislike me. Could it be that my presence causes intimidation?

With the MKMMA experience I have become more aware of my personal power.  Each day I am now more in tune with myself.

Week 18–The Scroll Marked V

I will live this day as if it is my last.

This is the powerful statement that Og starts Scroll V with. It gave me pause.  I read the words but I was silently admonishing myself. I had not been living my life as though the day I was granted was my last. I can recall several days that I wasted, never to return.

I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortune, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart.

This is yet another intense moment with Scroll V.  Though I have the ability to forget difficult or unpleasant times in my life, the missteps of the past couple of years are still fresh in my mind.  I have wasted too many moments on yesterday’s misfortunes, defeats & aches of the heart.

I will avoid with fury the killers of time. Procrastination I will destroy with action; doubt I will bury under faith; fear I will dismember with confidence.

Okay, this I like. Now I take action. It is simple.   Stop hesitating and waiting for the perfect conditions to take action. Just do it!  Release the Faith that has been growing in you.  That you have been creating in the world within.  Let the truth you know & have been learning here with the MKMMA bring out your confidence.

Enjoy The Journey-
