"Pledging the Beta Epsilon. Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has shaped me in so many ways that many would not understand and can’t see with the naked eye. When I first laid eyes on Alpha as a 16 year old, I knew that this shield would transform me and my grind to a new level. Pledging MADE me. Now, I am assisting many brothers like myself MAKE Alpha". #LeadTheWay HAPPY FOUNDER’S DAY! 🤙🏾🦍-@keonrmitchell
December is a month FULL of busy schedules, basketball, coming and going, cramming in birthday parties, christmas excitement and fun!
I was so grateful to get to spend some quality time with a great friend this weekend.
Great company, good food and even a little unexpected extra time due to an unexplained flat tire? 🤔
No better way to refill your cup than a little quality time with great people.... How did you fill your cup this weekend?
Remember.... in a month all about giving, don't forget yourself! <3
After a super hectic morning, I’m finally sitting down with my coffee & newsletter. It was such a great surprise to open it up to see a familiar face, to read such inspiring words to start my day. Just a few short months ago, I would have hidden this newsletter, not even opened it, probably tossed it in the trash. Avoidance is the sate of life I was living in. Not anymore. Opening up and sharing about my disability was one of the best decisions I have ever made because it has fueled my purpose and my passion. And although I have good days and blah days (I hate the term bad days, because there is good in everyday), I have a support system to lean on. I’m confident better days are coming and this newsletter represents so much hope. It’s a reminder they have entered a “tipping point” of activity in the FSHD field. Cutting edge research is happening everyday and initiatives to accelerate research towards treatments are on the forefront, SO amazing! A cure is out there, now it’s time to go find it! ❤

This has ALWAYS been something I’ve tried very hard to do , I was telling a sweet friend that the more I’ve aged and the more I’ve begun to open my eyes to everything going on around me the harder it is to stay sweet and not become bitter .
It’s become a fight daily between doing what i know To be right & I know God wants me to be and do which is full of grace , mercy ,empathy ,forgiveness ,kindness, love unconditionally ,be understanding .
Or chose to listen to & be like the world and just walk away from people who hurt me forever ..and treat them as they’ve treated me .
Pride /resentment /bitterness /Hurt/anger/expectations /disappointments will not change me I will fight to rid these things daily from my life.
I will not allow them to destroy my heart or make me cold or like others .
Those who truly know me and my heart know that my intentions are to love and accept everyone and see the good and want only the good for EVERYONE even the ones who have hurt me the most .
Satan wants to steal ,kill and destroy us, relationships, your walk ,testimony and heart anything that could be used for good to bring others closer to God .#bethechange#leadtheway#leadbyexample#growthroughwhatyougothrough#dontconform
