TOUGH – ROUGH

I’m tough. I’m not rough. There’s a difference. Know that difference going forward, if your goal is to change your community, your world, into a better place for everyone. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight Advertisements

MEEK

My mother wanted me meek. So, I was meek for her. But I’m not meek. It’s not my nature. I’m not a lion, where I’m going to eat you up. I’m not a lamb either. Maybe I’m just the animal I am. Can you accept that? I’m just the animal I am. ~ Sharon Lee…

STRAW | CAMEL

I am the straw that made the camel stronger – by taking the bale of hay off her/his back. I am not the straw that breaks anybody. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

DANCE

It is the song that determines the dance, not the other way around. The dance never comes before the song, whether in your mind, your body, the universe of you, or a sound that you hear or a sight that you see or a presence in your soul that you feel. The sound of your…

HUMAN NATURE

You: Do you think I’m stupid because I’m black? Me: Do YOU think you’re stupid because you’re black? You: No. Me: Good. Then we’re on the same page. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight It’s strange how when you call yourself stupid, people believe you. Call yourself smart and they’ll become indignant and immediately try to prove…

ROCKY STARTS

All starts are rocky. I never had a start that went smoothly. Never had a start that wasn’t rocky. So, it must be the nature of the ‘start’. The inexperience and uncertainty of something new, even if it’s something sure, creates rocky. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

WHEN YOU’RE ‘CALLED’!

When the government ‘calls’ you, it’s for the purpose of putting yourself in harms way to protect and/or advance the group via the military. When God ‘calls’ you, it’s never to give your life so that others may live. It’s always to live your life as the example to others to do the same. ~…

PROPHECY

You don’t fulfill a prophecy and call it holy by starting a war that was predicted. Once you know the prophecy, you stop the war before it starts. That’s the holy part. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

MY SECRET

I’ll share a secret with you about myself, that I’ve never communicated to anyone. Years ago while still very young I read somewhere, either in a newspaper or magazine or book, that if somebody could actually write the way their mind actually thinks they’d make a million dollars. I’ve been trying to make that million…

PREACHERS PREACHING PREJUDICE

Instead of the congregation leaving the church with a ‘no one can beat us down’ uplift, they leave with a ‘let’s beat them all up’ attitude that rolls the congregation into a week of day to day challenges, that they’re less able to meet with positive solution solving ways. Oppressed people need to vent in…

JEW AND BLACK ARE NOT THE ONLY 2 PREJUDICES IN THE WORLD – as both would have you believe

The American Jews need to stop acting oppressed when they’re not. The American Africans need to stop calling themselves slaves when they’re not. Both groups dim the cries of other oppressed groups, and enslave a nation and a world by screaming about their own past that is over. Neither the NAACP nor the Anti-Defamation League…

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

Unfortunately, most of black America was happy when a white cop shot dead a black man in the back. The dead black man is now a martyr for the black cause. A few weeks ago, a white cop shot a white man in the back while sitting on him. It didn’t make headlines, because white…

RECLAIM YOUR BRAIN

It’s like at birth you hand over your brain to whomever wants it. Then you spend the rest of your life gliding through on somebody else’s expectations for you. For God’s sake, wake up and live for you. Make your own expectations for yourself. Reclaim your brain before you die never knowing you had one.…

THE SIMPLER THE PLAN THE BETTER

If I buy an appliance with a hundred different bells and whistles, that means a hundred different things can go wrong with it. Keeping it simple avoids costly breakdowns and repairs – if indeed all of those bells and whistles are actually designed to be repaired when they do break down. Why take the risk?…

LEVEL PLAYING FIELD FOR POOR

There’s no such thing as a level playing field for the poor, so stop pretending that all those social programs create one – they don’t. What’s needed are opportunities, but the rich folks don’t want any poor folks in their class, so they throw programs at them, telling them they’re on their own to achieve…
