Dr. Benjamin Carson


Strength is.....




Dr. Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson Sr. 
One of THE top Neurosurgeons in the world


So skilled at his craft, Dr. Benjamin Carson is the first man to separated conjoined Siamese twins even while dealing with racial discrimination from the very parents of the twins. Coming from a very complex and troubled childhood Dr. Benjamin Carson had a mother that would encourage him everyday to read more and more. Who would've known that at the age of 33 Dr. Benjamin Carson would earn his position as the Director of Pediatric NeuroSurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. 


One day as a young girl I read the Time Magazine. It was a hard cover book collection that my father brought home. I read this book from cover to cover. When I read the story of Dr. Benjamin Carson I then went on to read his auto biography. He is one of the reasons why I was determined to go to college. After reading his story I knew that if he could do it, then I definitely could do it too. I too could become an inspiration to others that needed someone to look up to. 

While we are celebrating Black History Month it is important to look at those that have blazed a trail and Dr. Benjamin Carson is a prime example of what strength is and what it should mean for all of us.

My sister sketched these designs on the canvas and then painted them. Lovely.





Life is About Discovering Who You Are!

We all have our days when we sit back and daydream about what we might be doing right now if we weren't doing what we are currently doing.

Did you follow that?

Sometimes our present situations cause us to ponder on the "what-ifs" in life. I don't believe in regrets. I believe that everything that happens in life is meant to happen exactly as it has happened to bring you to your defining moment. Sometimes that means that you have to crawl through the mud to finally use the strength that you never knew that you had. It might even mean that need to switch paths in the middle of you walking along your journey towards a goal that you thought you wanted.

Discover who you are! That's the purpose of life! Life isn't meant to be solved like an equation as if there's a certain formula to guarantee your success or happiness. Have fun in discovering who you are! Realize what you want and what you need to do in order to experience your ultimate success and happiness!

30 is awesome!

I'm 30 and awesome!

Time flies when you're having fun. Living life is an amazing experience. To be present in every moment and satiated by everything that gears me towards being a better person is a really great feeling.

Every day I achieve goals that I've set for myself. Enjoying every day is the #1 goal on my list. I just give a word of thanks for health, wealth, love, family and friends.

Be thankful. Be appreciative. Just be.
