Eating For Chron’s Disease And Ulcerative Colitis: Paleo Vegan

In my previous post I discussed how to establish a diet if you have Chron’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. Now I want to go into how I chose a plant based version of the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).

Research Phase

I started this process by doing a ton of research. I researched to the point that my face was constantly stuck in a research article, medical journals, Chron’s and UC forums, documentaries, lectures, and etc.. From the research that I gathered I decided to pursue the Vegan AIP.

I chose this for a couple of reasons. When my doctor talked about the possibilities of a j-pouch it was because my bowels needed to rest. My thought was that if I eat foods that are easier for my gut to digest and incorporate intermittent fasting then that would give my bowels the rest that it needs.

My research consistently brought me back to “chronic inflammation”. If you follow my blog then you know that I discuss inflammation and the importance of keeping it controlled on a regular. One of the main culprits of chronic inflammation is an acidic diet. Meat products are heavily acidic. Therefore, I decided to cut out the meat and focus on a plant based, alkaline way of eating.

Elimination

The first part of the autoimmune protocol is elimination. I feel that it’s extremely important to note that I did not drop everything at once. I broke everything up so that I could guarantee success. With following this protocol I had a double elimination phase. First, the autoimmune protocol calls for the elimination of gluten, sugar, dairy, nightshades, grains, nuts , beans, and large consumptions of fruit. Second, being that I was going vegan that also meant eliminating meat. Also, you are not to eat fried foods.

I instantly got rid of all gluten products and sugary foods. Then I eliminated foods in this order:

  • Beef
  • Poultry
  • Seafood
  • Dairy
  • Legumes
  • Grains
  • Beans
  • Nightshades ( tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and etc.)

At this point my entire diet consisted of nutrient-dense, leafy green vegetables. For thirty days my diet consisted of cooked kale, spinach, mustard, turnip, and collard greens, cabbage, squash, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, bok choy, chard, and other vegetables.

Re-Introduction

There are a couple of things to remember about the re-introduction phase. This is not a green light for you to return to the way that you were eating. Keep in mind that once you’ve reached this point you are probably eating the healthiest that you have ever ate. This is not the time to blow the hard work.

What you’re doing is gradually re-introducing certain plant foods to see how you respond. For example, you have eliminated tomatoes from your diet since it’s a nightshade. Now, you re-introduce tomatoes into your diet and document how your body responds in your food diary. No flare-up could possibly mean that tomatoes are not an issue for you. This is how you go about discovering which foods spark a reaction into your gut and you tailor a diet that suits you.

I have enjoyed the plant based way of eating and have not considered going back to eating meat. With that being said, I have no false illusions that everybody wants to adopt the plant based lifestyle. Even if you prefer to keep meat in your diet you can still follow the autoimmune protocol and reap the benefits. Therefore, I will do some future posts of eating plans that others with IBD are using and having success.

Eating For Chron’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis

Most of my posts concerning food and autoimmune diseases have been general in its approach. Being that all autoimmune diseases have the same underlying effect it’s easy to speak to them in a broad manner. However, things become very tricky when discussing the irritable bowel diseases in the autoimmune community. These conditions are Chron’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

The diet for someone with these conditions has to be altered in comparison to an individual with Hasimoto’s whom is mostly concerned with the thyroid. Our condition is in our digestive system and unlike other people a healthy meal might consists of skipping the salad. No uniform diet is known to be effective across the board. Everyone’s system responds differently. Eating mushrooms will make me very sick for days. The next person with Chron’s or UC can eat mushrooms with no problem. I can usually handle salads pretty well but some can not.

The most effective formula that I have discovered is to research various eating methods for these conditions, try one that you feel best suits your needs, get a food diary, begin the process of eliminating foods from that eating plan, and tailoring the diet specifically for yourself. I know that it’s overwhelming because I see so many people in Chron’s and UC forums that are struggling with this.

The people that I see struggling the most are the newbies of course. They have so many questions and very few answers. Even those of us whom have been dealing with this for years get stumped sometimes because our body is always changing and so is the information. If you suffer from a different autoimmune disease or just want to be healthier then you can benefit from this also.

It’s important to note that many of these diets consists of an “elimination phase” and a “re-introduction phase”. The phases begin once you’ve established the eating plan you choose to pursue. For example if you choose the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol, you would begin a process of eliminating dairy, legumes, grains, nightshades, gluten, sugar, and carbohydrates from your diet. Once those foods are eliminated you will want to maintain this phase for at least the 30 days suggested by many researchers.

Once the bowels and immune system have had time to rest and reset, you can now enter the “re-introduction phase”. Another important thing to remember is that the re-introduction phase is not your free card to going back to eating garbage. Keep in mind that you have worked extremely hard to reach the end of the elimination phase.

At this point, this should be the healthiest that you have ever ate. Not only are you eliminating junk foods and foods that are harmful to your gut health, you are also introducing yourself to healthier foods. The re-introduction phase is slowly bringing back healthy foods that could be harmful to your gut health. I will use a salad for example. A salad full of nutrient dense, raw vegetables is considered to be one of the healthiest things that you can eat. However, for someone with Chron’s or UC a salad can wreck havoc on your gut. You will want to eliminate the salad initially, but re-introduce it during the re-introduction phase. Keep note in your food diary of how your gut responds to the salad and the ingredients in the salad.

If your gut responds well then we can conclude that maybe raw vegetables are not an irritant to you. Even if that’s the case, you still might want to be cautious even if the food doesn’t cause instant irritability. These foods are listed as gut irritants to us for a reason. It might not hit you today but if you consistently eat raw vegetables then it might come back to haunt you. So that’s how you go about the process of tailoring the diet for your specific need.

I know that it might sound confusing but once you start I promise that it’s an easy process. In my next posts I will show the autoimmune vegan protocol that I used. I will then follow up with several diets that have been implemented with the autoimmune protocol. Hopefully that will give some of the newbies a foundation to build upon.


Here We Go With The Swine Flesh Again

It’s been several weeks since my last post. I have several things going on and one thing that I refuse to do is get up here and throw some gibberish together. I have to be motivated and inspired to post some thought provoking content.

A few days ago Dr. Oz gave me some inspiration and a great chuckle. I do feel it’s worth noting that I’m not a Dr. Oz fan. To me the dude is a weird looking elf that uses half truth fallacies to play off the insecurities and vulnerabilities in women. No respect in that. However, he brought up an interesting subject. It was about the dangers of pork consumption.

If you know me personally, have been following my blog, or have spoken to me online on certain platforms then you know how much I hate pork. Dr. Oz revealed information in regards to a comprehensive study performed by the World Health Organization that specifically charged pork as being the most deadly and unclean meat consumed in America. Not only is it injected with more hormones and given more antibiotics than any other meat, it also contains more parasitic worms.

An investigator whom was involved in the research stated that more people died in America from pork related illnesses than reported homicides. There were a little over 17,000 reported homicides last year. Over 20,000 people died from pork related illnesses last year. Look, the pig isn’t walking around with a pistol threatening to shoot people. It can only kill you if you eat it. There is a choice involved in this matter.

This is where Dr. Oz made me chuckle. After this investigator went through her research giving details to the many dangers of eating pork, Dr. Oz goes on to discuss pork that’s “safer” to eat. To me that’s the equivalent of my doctor telling me about a “safe cigarette” after we just talked about getting lung cancer and emphysema. There is no such thing as SAFE PORK!

As I’ve stated in the past like so many others, the swine ‘s purpose on Earth is to consume filth and garbage. It’s the animal kingdom’s version of a garbage dumpster along with shrimp and other shellfish. That’s why Christ cast a legion of demons into the swine. It’s designed to hold garbage. That’s why it has no sweat glands. Sweating is a method of purifying the body. The swine is designed to hold all of the filth and not purify itself. That’s why its entire body is made of parasitic worms. So eating a pork sandwich is the equivalent of eating from the dumpster of the restaurant that you got it from.

I’ve also shared on other platforms scripture backed facts that The Most High’s chosen people are under grace and the LAW. I recently had a brother try to debate me on this fact. I could tell that he was coming from a genuine place so I advised him not to bring emotions into a fact fight. He said that his Pastor stated the law was done and we are only under grace. I didn’t even get deep into the scriptures with him. I just told him to tell his pastor on Sunday, that the church members will stop paying tithes because tithes was a law given to us in Genesis 14:20, Genesis 28:20-22, Leviticus 27:30, and Numbers 18:26. I bet the Pastor will start teaching the law then because he knows that “grace” dollars will not pay that lawful contract called a mortgage or any other bill. This is what happens when you don’t have any laws. You can eat whatever you want, have homosexuals and undercover pedophiles in prominent positions within the church, pastors and deacons sleeping with people’s wives and other men, people getting robbed of their money, the manipulation of the emotions of middle aged women, effeminate men, women dressed like prostitutes, and all of this is totally fine because under grace I can obtain salvation as long as I simply believe. Even though 1 John 3:4 says:

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the LAW: for sin is the transgression of the LAW.

If you read the Apocrypha, in particular the Book of Macabees, my Israelite ancestors that were in the Greek captivity were forced to eat pork and adopt the Greek culture. If they refused then they were put to death. There is archeological evidence that shows Pharaoh and the Egyptians fed an abundance of pork to the Israelites during the Egyptian captivity. If we look at the Transatlantic captivity that was prophesied in Deuteronomy 28:15-68, Genesis 15:13, and Isaiah 11:12, European slave owners forced my ancestors to eat pork and accept the ways of the heathen. Notice the common theme that pork was forced onto my people in these captivities. Why is that? It’s because not only is pork physically damaging but it’s spiritually damaging. If you can spiritually break someone then the mind and body will follow. It’s not just about eating pork and abominable foods. It’s about the degradation of a people that comes from a result of it. How can we drop a slave mentality and a slave condition when we are eating a slave diet? Remember, you are what you eat.

Here is the beautiful part. Due to the sacrifice of Christ we are not put to death because of our failure to keep the law. We were struggling with the law and that’s why the sacrifice was needed. So under the grace of the sacrifice we now have a second opportunity to keep these laws and not transgress against them. So, lets keep in mind that when we eat pork we are literally pissing on what Christ died for. So let’s work on keeping those laws and live righteously.

Banned Insecticide From 1972 Still Causing Autism And Breast Cancer

Last Friday I dropped a post about Monsanto’s and the herbicide, Roundup. In the post I discussed how a brother named Dewayne Johnson won a $289 million lawsuit against the conglomerate. I also went into the cancer causing nature of Roundup and the chemical being found in the products that we feed our children for breakfast.

Over the weekend many herbalists, holistic advocates, activists, and many more dropped a ton of information concerning Monsanto’s, Pharmacia, Bayer, and The Rothschild’s involvement in the medical world. Jamie Reno release an article discussing an insecticide named DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane). This particular insecticide was banned in 1972 by the EPA. DDT at the time was thought to be dangerous to humans, animals, and the environment. The assumption made about this chemical turned out to be 100% correct.

The banned chemical remains in our ecosystem and is possibly one of the sources of increased Autism and breast cancer cases. The CDC has reported that 1 out of every 59 births result in Autism. Scientists are researching different scenarios such as environmental factors, unstable genes, viral infections, complications during pregnancy or delivery, and exposure to chemicals. I laugh at the fact that the CDC omitted vaccines. There is an enormous amount of research indicating the MMR vaccine as one of the culprits for this Autism increase. A CDC whistleblower and Congressman Bobby Kenedy Jr. revealed to the world that the CDC destroyed documents that the heavy metals in the MMR vaccine greatly enhanced the risk of autism in black boys.

Anyway, Dr. Alan S. Brown, MPH, a psychiatrist and epidemiologist at Columbia University has made a career studying the risk factors of autism, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. His research shows that even though almost five decades have gone by since DDT was banned, the chemical is still present in our food chain today. Brown and his international team’s researched showed that over a million pregnancies shared a link between the elevated levels of a metabolite of DDT in the blood of pregnant women and increased risk for autism in their children.
His team conducted the study between mother-child pairings. One group was with offspring with autism and the other group without. Maternal blood was taken during early stages of the pregnancy. The blood was then analyzed for DDE, a metabolite of DDT, and PCBs. Research found the odds of autism with intellectual disability in offspring were increased by greater than twofold for the mother with DDE levels in the top quartile. Brown released a statement after the study.
“Unfortunately Brown said, these chemicals are still present in the environment and are in our blood and tissues.”“In pregnant women, they are passed along to the developing fetus,” he said. “Along with genetic and other environmental factors, our findings suggest that prenatal exposure to the DDT toxin may be a trigger for autism.”

DDT is also being linked to breast cancer. Scientists in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism claim that they were able to find a definitive and significant link between breast cancer and DDT exposure. The researchers made this statement:

“We observed a sizable, statistically significant association between in utero DDT exposure and risk of breast cancer in young women and a possible association with more aggressive tumors,” the authors concluded. “These findings are the first ever reported for a prospective observation of a large pregnancy cohort.”

If you would like to read more on this, here is the link https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.medicaldaily.com/utero-exposure-controversial-pesticide-ddt-may-be-linked-later-risk-breast-cancer-338778%3Famp%3D1?source=images

This is a great article on the Medical Daily detailing extensive research on this particular issue with breast cancer.

As I study this, I realize that the rabbit hole goes very deep on this. It’s another multilayered and multiplayer agenda to depopulate the Earth. This situation with Monsanto’s and the many companies in bed with them is nothing to sneeze about. Please research these groups when you have time. You would be shocked at just how much power these guys actually have and whom is backing them.


Monsanto’s Lawsuit & The Effects Of Roundup

A few days ago a brother and father of two sons named Dewayne Johnson, won a $289 million lawsuit against the demonic manufacturer of Roundup, Monsanto’s. Brother Dewayne Johnson won the monumental lawsuit after San Francisco jurors ruled that Roundup caused the terminal Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma that Mr. Johnson was diagnosed with in 2014.

Mr. Johnson worked as a groundskeeper at a school district in the San Francisco area. There he applied the Roundup weedkiller 20 to 30 times per year. Mr. Johnson testified in court that on two separate occasions he was soaked with the toxic weedkiller with the first incident occuring in 2012. Coincidentally he was diagnosed with terminal cancer less than two years later. Doctor’s reported that Mr. Johnson has lesions on over 80% of his body.980x180615164344-dewayne-johnson-hand-exlarge-169

CNN reported that there were over 800 pending cases as of last year of individuals claiming that Roundup was the cause of their cancer diagnosis. His case was the first to go to trial because California has a law that dying patients have the right to an expedited trial. This monumental ruling set a landmark precedent on how future cases against Monsanto’s could be handled. Personally, I hope everyone is awarded $300 million and this wicked company is brought to its knees.

However, unfortunately because of last year’s Republican tax cuts and the expected appeal of Monsanto’s, Mr. Johnson might collect less than $20 million of the actual award. That’s just another sign of just how wicked and satanic these beasts are that we are up against in this Babylon system. However, my feelings about that aspect is for another post in the future. I would like to discuss just how deadly this Monsanto’s machine is.

In the past I’ve made several posts on Monsanto’s, GMO’s, and herbicides. This case proves exactly what activists and researchers have been saying concerning Monsanto’s. If you have not done so as of yet, I strongly urge you to research Monsanto’s and their history of GMO’S, toxic herbicides, terminator seeds, and etc.. You will find that it’s a complex and multilayered conspiracy against the people. It’s intertwined with the government, the EPA, Big Pharma, the food industry, commercial farming and agriculture, the legal system, and other conglomerates.

In March, 2015 the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared that the chemical in Roundup called glyphosate is carcinogenic to humans. If you’re unfamiliar with the term carcinogenic, it simply means having the potential to cause cancer. Research is also showing that the glyphosate in Roundup interacts with other ingredients that causes a “synergistic effect” that makes the product more carcinogenic. If you find the time, you can research the time of when Round-up became popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s and the increased rate of cancer since that time.

Also the newbies should research this also. Monsanto’s manufacturers Roundup Ready Crops by producing “terminator seeds”. These are genetically modified seeds that are produced in a laboratory and made to be Roundup resistant. Therefore, you can spray the Roundup on the crops to rid of unwanted foilage without damaging the crops because they’re Roundup resistant. This means that the food you’re eating is not natural to the Earth or native to anything. If it kills humans and weeds yet doesn’t kill crops then you can use reasonable deduction to determine that these are Frankenfoods.

Also, the terminator seeds produces a crop that doesn’t contain seeds. Like I wrote in an earlier post, anything that doesn’t have seed, has no life. If I told you that as a man that I couldn’t produce seeds, wouldn’t you say that’s a bad thing? Of course it is! I would be deemed sterile, unable to produce life, and would be undesirable to a woman that’s wanting to reproduce life. So we can also assume that these terminator seeds are definetly harmful to us.

And check this out. Roundup has recently been discovered in over 40 cereal and oat brands that we feed our children. Popular children items, including General Mills’ Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charm’s, Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran and Quaker’s Old Fashioned Oats are some of the items on the list. This is a direct attack on our babies. Of course Monsanto’s has declared that it’s no worry and not a big deal. Look, anytime the Whore of Babylon tells you not to worry about something, then you should really WORRY!

So much love to  our dear brother Dewayne Johnson and his two sons that will be here after his demise. Again, please do your research on Monsanto’s and learn the ways that you can fight against them.

 

 


Allow Your Vegetation To Be Your Medication

Yesterday I had a visit with my gastroenterologist for my Chron’s Disease and I’m happy to report that my Chron’s is in full remission. Most high in Christ for that one. It has been one hell of a journey when I think back to the state of health that I was in. Thankfully everything is great now.

I was chuckling on the inside when talking to my doctor. She asked if I was still on Humira and I informed her that I had been off the Humira for several months. She seemed to be so surprised at how I was functioning without the medications. She then tried to push for me to get back on the Humira. I asked if there was anything other than Humira because I didn’t want to deal with the crazy side effects.

She then gave me the Tour De France story to basically say that if I had reactions to Humira then I would have reactions to the other drugs because they are similar. Also Humira and other drugs have the potential to lead to cancer. My lovely wife intervened and said that even with the Humira I was having issues. It was when I totally changed the way that I ate that my body was able to heal. She then tried to convince me to take another medication that’s a step under Humira, and little certainty of how effective it truly is. I declined because what’s the point of taking a medication that you’re basically saying isn’t worth a crap.

The moral of the story is that when I left the doctor’s office my paperwork stated that I was managing my Chron’s with diet and herbal supplementation. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve said it before and I will say it again. If I need to take the meds then I will take the meds. So I will never tell anyone not to take the medication if the situation calls for it. HOWEVER, I shall scream from the top of Mt. Zion that the best medication on Earth is what the Lord gives us in his plants. Nothing man touches can ever duplicate the healing properties in the plants.

I would advise anyone to not wait until they are sick to decide to make these changes. Healing yourself with food and herbs is a long process. It takes even longer when the body is in a compromised state. Take the time to learn your body and discover your deficiencies. Do the research on foods, herbs, and supplements that will help the body reach a place of balance were it can heal itself. Now this doesn’t mean that you will never get sick. However, it does mean that the body will be better suited to face upcoming challenges.

So the plants are your friends. There are so many fruits, vegetables, herbs,  and spices that are great for you and you’ve probably never heard of it or tried it. So put down the garbage food that is killing you and pick up electric plant foods that will give you life.

Side note. There are 4 great books to help you get started on eating better. How To Eat To Live Vol. 1 & 2 by The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Dick Gregory’s Natural Diet For Folks Who Eat: Cookin’ With Mother Nature by Dick Gregory, and The Easiest Way To Become A Vegan by Pharaoh Ramses El-Aton. These books have information that will give you solid ground on eating to heal your body.

 


Do For Self: Let’s Get It!

Do for self. This phrase entered the lexicon of many in Black America during the 1960’s. It was introduced by one of my heroes The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and continues to reverberate through the “woke” community today. This rallying cry was and is a cry for Black people in America to unite, pool our resources, and stop begging others to do for us what we have the full capability of doing for ourselves. We are to stop begging other people for jobs, schooling, food, housing, taking care of our sick, and etc. We should focus on building our own infrastructure that are centered around our own specific needs.

Growing up my mother instilled the principle of doing for self  in me at a young age. She always worked multiple jobs, but always kept a side hustle to make extra money. Her biggest money maker was selling her famous baked goods. She taught me that you are to let your full time job finance your side hustle until your side job can support you full time. You pick something that you love and are passionate about and it doesn’t seem like work. Her plan was to open her own family operated restaurant in Asheville, NC once she retired. However, she passed away one month before she was able to retire.

Funny story. I was around 8 years old and my mother was selling body oils and fragrances. She had this enormous leather brown case that was full of sample oils, cologne, and perfume. For whatever reason I decided to take the sample case outside. I posted up and started selling the samples for $1 a pop. When I came home with that case almost empty she was livid! However, she did respect my grind once I pulled out my money. She took the cash to replace the samples that I sold and gave me the money to start my own summer hustle. I started selling hard cups which is frozen kool-aid in styrofoam cups and you turn them into homemade popsicles on steroids. I also sold fudge pops, little huggies, jungle juice, Chico sticks, ring pops, jolly ranchers, sugar daddies, Debbie cakes, and chips. Pretty sure there were other things, but I distinctively remember those items.

From the beginning my mother told me that was my business and I was responsible for its operation. That meant not running off and holding the porch down waiting for customers. Some of you might say that sucks. But it certainly didn’t suck when I was able to buy whatever I wanted without having to ask my mother for the money.

It taught me many lessons. It taught me money management. I learned that having knowledge of properly saving money is probably more valuable than knowing how to make it. I learned how to profit off of every investment and not put myself in a hole. I also learned work ethic and independence. As I got older my side hustles changed to mowing lawns, selling clothes and shoes, African novelties, and other things that I won’t discuss.

Again, I always have worked a full time job with my side hustles. However, I always wanted a business of my own and be my own boss. My end goal for several years has been to open up my own community center. I’ve realized through the years that regardless of if you have education or not, you must think independent if you have a record. Look, I’m telling you from experience that America is a liar when it comes to giving people second chances. You can clean up your act, get your degree and never get in trouble again and your past will always be thrown in your face. So walking around banking on someone to give you a great magical job is absurd. You’ve got to think of what you can do for yourself.

Since I started blogging, I have given my entire story of my health battle. I must say that being vegan, doing the research, blogging about health and fellowshipping with other health conscious people has been a great experience. Also, I have always had that revolutionary spirit of fighting for the freedom, justice, and equality for my people. So my two passions in life are the condition of my people and health. Now you must find a way to grow those passions into a business.

So my plan is to launch my own brand in a few months titled Plant Based Poppin. The meaning of the name has meaning. It’s my antithesis to the language used by the gang known as the Bloods. They say ” 5 poppin, 6 dropping”. This basically means that Bloods are shooting and Crips are dying. “Plant Based Poppin” will be the ammunition to “drop” diseases and ailments that are ravaging our communities. I am changing the frequency and vibrations of terminology that is used in death and destruction by replacing it with life.

My plan is to have the brand feature t-shirts, e-books, dietary manuals, general health tips, foods and herbs for specific conditions, environmental concerns, blogs, vlogs, and so much more. Within the next several months I will push to spread this message through various social media outlets. I also plan on having a website specifically designed for the Plant Based Poppin’ brand. I also plan on starting a separate blog site that will focus on a broader spectrum. This will be focused directly on the socio-economical, political, and spiritual woes that afflict our community. People have their heads stuck in the sand so much that they don’t even realize that paedophilia is on the verge of being legalized. You can believe me or not, but the LBGTQ movement was the buffer used to normalize and then legalize pedophilia. But if you don’t keep your ears to the street and do your research then you would never know. That’s why brothers such as myself are needed. I have no problem with talking about the issues that these scary punks tip toe around. I promise to be unapologetic and uncompromising in my position regardless of who does not like it.

I also plan on using my Social Work background to promote the use of naturopathic and holistic forms of medicinal intervention. So, I have numerous things that I’ve been brainstorming and networking with other people on. It’s going to take time and a lot of work and planning to bring this into fruition. However like I’ve said before, I will always bet on myself regardless of what the naysers throw in my direction.

So hopefully once everything is up, everyone will support. If we can support and give money to things that do not  benefit us in any shape, form, or fashion, then certainly we can support a young brother that’s trying to bring a positive and edifying message to the people.

I take pride in trying to make this happen because regardless of what anyone thinks about it, it is mine! It’s my dream that I can bring into reality and nobody can rob me of that. People are so afraid to step out on a limb to reach for success. You can’t sit on your ass and wait for it to come to you. People are so fearful of failure. If you fail so freaking what! Pick yourself up, learn from your mistake, and push forward. We can sit around and discuss the success of the rich and powerful but we ignore the failures they had on the way of obtaining that status. It’s the failures that motivated them to keep pushing.

People like to be comfortable even if that means they will fall short of ever achieving their dreams. If that’s the life you choose that’s totally fine. However, don’t get old and discuss your regrets. Be content with the fact that you are beneath a quitter because at least the quitter made an attempt.

As a man, the last thing that I want is for my children to have to grow up and beg another man for a job. I want to put myself in a position that when I leave this Earth my children have something to build upon or strive for something greater than wanting to slave for some company their entire life. If I leave this place before my wife, I do not want for her to have to depend on other people for assistance. I want to leave her in position were she can take my life’s work and be a blessing for other people.

So as I go through this transition my posts will be sporadic. I might drop several in one week and none for a week and a half. I will keep everyone updated on my progression. Again, I’m taking my time with this because I want for this to be as thorough and professional as possible. I want for this to be a brand and movement that the people can trust and believe in.
