Not Creepy but Someone is watching you.

There is some who is observing what you do. Don’t get creeped out, but it is a truth. Ninety percent of the time we are partially aware of our surroundings. Like I said don’t be creeped out. In this day and age we put so much information about our personal lives up for grabs and then we freak when someone who is not on your radar give you a clue they are observing your life.

This is a Creepy Picture, I took in Milwaukee!

That is not the point of my topic. The brainwashing continues to evolve in our society that things have to have a negative spin.

I am referring to admiration. There is a wonderful feeling to get confirmation about how you live your life has impacted another person as an example of how to live. I was an only child, therefore I really did not have a model to live by i.e older brother, sister, or cousin. Much of my early childhood gave me few examples I though were worth wild, so I turned to the thing in the world I felt were good and just.

I grew up in Detroit during the heyday of the Young Boys incorporated and the arrival of Crack cocaine.  I was an only child with a strong presence from my mother, I knew caution was my friend… actually extreme caution was my friend. I chose to follow the path of the narrow, since the path that was broad had too much risk.

I have followed this philosophy to this day. There were a few times in my life when I slipped and followed, but it turned out to be a lesson to fortify a reason to stay in my own lane of life., and just do  ME.

The reason I started to write this post started from a memory that put a smile on my face. There was a kid who I though had the world by a string when i lived in Detroit proper as a teenager. He was a musician, the girls loved him and he made friends easily. Some 20 years later, we met again and spent some time together over several months. ‘

I realized our lives had taken drastically different paths. His path led him to the penitentiary, while I had built a family and a career. Other aspect of our early child/teen years came to light as well. One thing that he informed me of was how for the longest time admired the way I carried myself and my life when we were young. Blew my socks off to hear that, because this guy is and was talented and displayed great confidence. I kind of looked up to this guy because during our teen years he had so much confidence, was very respectful, and had freedoms other could not handle.
To find out that He was looking up to me was a shocker. During our mid teens my path changed and we began did not see each other much.

Example # 2

I was a guitar player for a local church when I was 29 years old. During a revival the church brought in a young keyboard player and drummer from a different congregation.  They were AWESOME musicians.  I played guitar to fill in the sound and the keyboard player and I hit it off . I found out this guy was only 19 years old, but carried himself  like a man many years older.  He was marred with a small daughter, and played for his fathers church.  As time passed and we played more gospel functions together, I asked if his family would like to have diner with my family, I would cook.  We had a nice time., and we continued our friendship for a few more years. Then paths separate me from people again. The temporary factor set in.

Years later I had an inkling to visit the church where the young keyboard player father was pastor. Things had changed, II walked into the church, took a seat. Watched as my old friend played the organ with such grace and felt good that he was doing well. Just as he noticed me , he stopped playing, the music stopped and he walked over  hugged me, and introduced me to the entire congregation. Then he proclaimed this is Brother Emmitt. He changed my life,  then he thanked GOD and went back to the keyboard and began playing  for the rest of the service. (wait,WHAT!)

After the service he informed me that I gave him direction because of how I lived, and until that point he had not seen a young black man who had his own house, took care of his family and lives a decent life without being shady.  He told me that I let him know the dream was possible. GOD works in mysterious way.

My ramblings in this post are this, you don’t know who is watching and admiring what you do and who you are. Yes you are doing all the right things but the wrong things may seem easier. There is someone who loves you for who you are and what you can become . Live that life to inspire others to reach their potential, and your happiness will fill with abundance

Love you All

Be Bless and Happy

Mistakes…the guide to Serendipity

I made a simple mistake, I mess up, flubbed, did a dumb thing.

I have another podcast and website that I use to have fun with and spend time with my closest friends producing. The real reason we do the podcast is a scheduled reason to spend an allotted predetermined time together. We have fun doing it, and have been for the last 2 years. Over the last 2 years we created over 50 shows and a great deal of pictures and content.
We have also changed the show since its inception, with the addition of my wife as a co-anchor.

Two days ago in an effort to update the BLOG www.emmittandrick.com to the latest software updates, I CRASHED the sit in a horrible fashion. Now if you got to the website there is a shell of what once was.

Since then I have set about recovering the data that was lost,which may take some time. The great aspect is I have revamped and started new, call it rebirth if you will. Now I can give Kellie the proper credit she deserves on the podcast.

Thanks to wordpress.com, we now have http://erkshow.wordpress.com/

Sometime, mistakes are designed to happen to force you to grow to something better. Once you realize you are better because of the mistake occurring you understand Serendipity.

People watching and interaction

There is nothing greater than the return of a smile.  One method of being happy, is being comfortable with the people around you no matter where you are. Strike up a conversation with a stranger the next time you are in a checkout line.

Being intentionally nice to people has great benefits, they usually return your niceness.

Let’s just be nice to other people.

Where does Self Esteem come forward from?

Confidence, Self Esteem, and happiness are all a part of self love.  It is one of those funny question as where does it come from, or how do you obtain it. The answer is simple. Self esteem comes from living and accomplishment. It is my belief we all start out with a zero point on the self esteem ladder. Some points we go positive some point we go negative. If there are too many factors (people) detracting from your self esteem, then Low Self esteem is the outcome.

Your experience is just that, YOURS. If you use things out of your control as a barometer for your existence them you will have a tough go at it. This is why we see superstars who are adored by the public with really messed up lives. They need the approval of other as a measure of their worth. The alternative are those Media stars who perform their acts as a matter of an expression of THEIR Individual passion.

Is it real

As humans we are the high vibrational creatures. Just because we are high in vibration does not mean low vibration will not have an effect on us. Constantly we are able to disregard positive things around us because of our ego, and self esteem issues.

We all have a powerful tool that is our brain. Sometimes we can illogically think our way away from prosperity and abundance because we don’t have all the fact. We can rationalize detrimental thing and situation just by the way we process information.

We can think ourselves into believing no one cares for us, our jobs are in jeopardy, our spouse is seeing someone else. Without having and tangible information to prove anything. Begin by living by the facts of what you can prove. I know it can be really difficult sometime, but feeling can be a strong influence. Sometimes your feeling are trying to tell you something but we read the feeling wrong. This is a part of the growth process. We were not given a manual how to navigate this life,so its on the job training. Take the time to meditate on the positive things and push your EGO aside so the truth will manifest.

Love you all

Gratitude will get you more good!

Click the link HERE to listen to the podcast Gratitude, be thankful for all the good things Large and TINY!

Some people are such Complaining DIVA’s. I love the Snickers commercial where the people are these upset characters, like Aretha Franklin, or Joe Pesci.
They represent people with a horrible complaining disposition. We have at some time been these people or interacted with these types of people. It can be draining to say the least.

I am always grateful for the experience. Without people it would be boring here.

When people get to the negative state where they cannot see the good in their situation, they promote the gray feeling because of the gray feeling. They will get more things to complain about.

Its all about gratitude. Be happy for what you have and you will get more things to be happy about. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, you say Emmitt there are exceptions. I say nay to that. As long as you are living there is something in any moment to be grateful, and give thanks for experiencing.

If I am living, without serious pain, or hardship. Then grateful and happy I am. I did a Yoda sentence.

Personally, I say thank you so much during the day it would amaze you.

Dynamic Power Of A Smile!

Today was a very good day. No, I did not will the lottery, nor did I have a great epiphany. I just decided to be grateful and smile a genuine smile.

Once I started smiling, a statement came to fruition, the whole world began to smile back at me. I noticed the smiles returned to me from the man and woman at the gas station, then lady in the bank, the people at my toastmasters meeting, and the guy on the other side of the mirror.

It was the Law of reciprocity. When you begin to feel as good as I feel today, only good thing can come to you in spades.

I even did a podcast at http://emmittmuckles.com/podcast.

Remember when you feel mediocre, think of all the things you have to give thanks. Example, today you actually opened your eyes and greeted a new day, which means you have another chance to start new, or continue something better. Once that smile spreads through your core. Reap the reward.
