Just a few words that I wrote for my mom, and for all mothers from Facebook/Instagram: Happy Mother's Day to this wonderful mom, counselor, and friend. You cared for me; were there for me; shared with me; prepared me and raised me. All I am I owe to you. So today, and everyday, I say …
Something of a companion piece to Who Will Look At Me, the first poem I published on this blog. All the time I waited For someone to look at me And there you were Hiding in the shadows I saw you, but I couldn't really see The person that was looking at me Yet all …
Some things I was thinking about... Can anyone tell me when words like compromise, cooperation, compassion and coordination became bad words? Can anyone tell me when "my way or the highway" became the law, rather than let's work things out? When we decided that "working together" became "I'll do it my way?" When our heels …
My musical Twin Lady G has started a new Thursday music series (and I’m a bit late with the reblog since this is the second post of the series), but it features a song that we share a extraordinary musical bit of synchronicity with, and a song that I absolutely adore. Feel free to leave comments at her blog.
Beginnings by Chicago (Originally released in 1969). Re-released in 1971.
“Only the beginning…only just the start”
Make no mistake brass fans, Lady G is bringing you LIFE today!
GET INTO IT!
I go to sixty-seventh heaven EVER-Y-TIME I hear the horns blasting on this jam!
Easily one of my favorite songs of all time-best believe that!
Today’s affirmation: I now welcome new and positive beginnings!
Yes baby! Fall is in the air! The possibilities are endless! A new start!
It’s ONLY the beginning!
Come on y’all! Let’s rock this jam right into a new beginning!

Chicago!!! ‘Rock with Horns Band.’
I just can’t with Robert Lamm on this jam! Sorry y’all, I had to throw that one in for old times sake 😉
Remember to check out “My Jams” for years 1966-1996 under “Music”- “My Jams.”
Powerful words from Tikeetha! What I wish people would do instead of hiding behind preconceived notions of what we are. We are better together than divided.

Can we talk?
Can we truly talk about the elephant in the room that you never want to talk about?
Let’s talk about race.
I’m a woman.
Two indisputable facts that you may have noticed.
I’m a mother.
To a son.
He’s the light of my life.
He’s my Munch.
He’s also black.
Why do I keep mentioning color? Because I need you to see and acknowledge the rich hues in my skin tone. I need you to see my melanin and know that I am black. Can you see the warm coffee colored hues of my skin tone just radiating? Yes?
I’m black. A beautiful black woman who shares a rich history in this country. My ancestors were kings and queens, slaves and sharecroppers. I know this. Many of you know this. But, I need you to stop acting like I’m supposed to forget…

First the quote: Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. …
My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be. — Dr. Wayne Dyer Source: This Is The Goal For My Life From the Positive Outlooks blog. I have several goals for 2016, what with it being a milestone year for me. But all of them flow …
It's the morning groove for today. I've loved this song for years, but I never really paid any attention to the lyrics. But when I listened to it this morning, the lyric above spoke to me. We can all want to be grounded, and not dream to soar. But we all should want to fly. …
https://twitter.com/POTUS/status/689100817580867584 Sounds like something we need to do, especially now, more than ever. That is a dream of mine. I didn't do a Martin Luther King, Jr. post for today, as I have done one already. The President's words say what I want to say. There has been progress, but the dream hasn't been completely …
Somehow, I missed the anniversary date of when I started A Joyful Process. I knew it was sometime in November, but I wasn't sure of the exact date. The anniversary was actually last week (November 14). I thought that WordPress would send a notification letting me know I had been blogging under this name for …
