Brag on Yourself Blog

Let’s hear it…

I want you to brag so hard about yourself, that you leave absolutely nothing unsaid.

This past 18 months or so have been so difficult; but, we’ve made it!

Tell me your wins. Tell me about your growth. Tell me about the time when you felt defeated but then what? Tell me every victory you’ve faced.. And every challenge you smashed.

Spend intentional time focusing on you and your GOOD 🙏🏼

Share with me ❤️

#FOWC: [Cleveland’s ] Wall [Murals]

This is one of my most favorite aspects of my city! The artwork, surely some graffiti but respectfully well done, is magnificent! It’s scattered throughout downtown Cleveland, Ohio City, Parma, and several other suburbs. They are marvelous, absolutely worth a visit here.

Here an article from Cleveland Magazine🙂

Here’s a few additions pictures:

    What If

    My best friend gave me the best advice He said each day’s a gift and not a given right Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind And try to take the path less traveled by That first step you take is the longest stride
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? If today was your last day (If today was your last day)
    Against the grain should be a way of life What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try So live like you’ll never live it twice Don’t take the free ride in your own life
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? Would you call old friends you never see? Reminisce old memories Would you forgive your enemies? Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of? Swear up and down to God above That you finally fall in love If today was your last day
    If today was your last day Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart? You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars Regardless of who you are So do whatever it takes Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life Let nothin’ stand in your way Cause the hands of time are never on your side
    If today was your last day And tomorrow was too late Could you say goodbye to yesterday? Would you live each moment like your last? Leave old pictures in the past Donate every dime you have? Would you call old friends you never see? Reminisce old memories Would you forgive your enemies? Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of? Swear up and down to God above That you finally fall in love If today was your last day

    #CFFC: Places People Live #6

    Theme: Places People Live

    I live in the hugs of my girls,

    In the coffee shop I visit, and

    The memories with friends.

    I live in the parks I walk,

    In the tears that fall,

    In all my beginnings, and every end.

    I live in the words I speak, in the

    Truths of my life, in the stories I tell.

    I live from the love I give, the kindness

    Shared, and within hearts who knew me well.

    I am me in this life, I am

    Just the Human form.

    In the after years, though,

    the marvelous thing,

    I’ll live forever more.

    #FOWC: Abstract

    I have always loved the abstract in the art community! It leaves the doors wide open for expression and interpretation 💙💕 I recently discovered Jack Vanzet.

    Jack Vanzet is a creative director and multidisciplinary artist from Melbourne, Australia who works in the fields of graphic design, art direction, typography, illustration and branding. He has worked with a variety of different agencies and clients including Sony, Tumblr, EMI, Warner Music, Vice Magazine and Universal Music Group and many more. {source of quote linked via hyperlinked}

    I LOVE his color choices!!! This image tells me about a shark that just caught his lunch.

    Again, this is glorious simply because of the color choices. They are vibrant and defined. This image tells me about Starburst candy and the excitement of the delicious flavors.

    Lastly, this astonishing abstract piece reminds me of space. The stars are shining and the mixture of particles appear colorful. It has a taste of adventure, to me.

    God, Have Mercy

    I hear music all the time. Songs from generations ago, and stuff that’s on the radio today. I’ve heard such a vast mix of genres, artists, and types of music.

    It’s been my diary, my best friend, my voice, and my blanket of safety. Anytime I needed healing, I replied on music to work it’s magic… And it ALWAYS prevailed.

    But, as years passed, and Ive grown from a child to a young adult… And a young and inexperienced foolish newly wed, to this wise and refined concept of beauty, I’ve listened to old familiar songs and heard them for a very first time.

    Lately, as if something greater is drawing me nearer, I’ve become obsessed with one particular song.

    The artist’s voice caught my attention. The beat of the song is fast paced, and almost angelic.

    But, what does Kyrie mean? What was the inspiration for this moment in my life, when a song steals my attention as if trying to tell me something.

    So, I looked it up:

    Kyrie- Mr Mister * You can listen to it here*

    The wind blows hard against this mountain side, across the sea into my soul
    It reaches into where I cannot hide, setting my feet upon the road

    My heart is old, it holds my memories, my body burns a gemlike flame
    Somewhere between the soul and soft machine, is where I find myself again

    Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
    Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
    Kyrie eleison, where I’m going will you follow
    Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light

    When I was young I thought of growing old, of what my life would mean to me
    Would I have followed down my chosen road, or only wished what I could be

    Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
    Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
    Kyrie eleison, where I’m going will you follow
    Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light
