Love And Quandaries: The Beginning of A Beautiful Story

I told everyone who had a set of ears at work how the beautiful stranger came back to see me. And not only that, but I now knew his name, Rich… So I began telling my coworkers: “The guy with the ponytail came back! And dig it, he came to see me! And I knowContinue reading “Love And Quandaries: The Beginning of A Beautiful Story”

Gratitude: The Beginning of A Beautiful Story

How it all started… When things were yet again falling apart, I didn’t get upset the last time. I figured that there must’ve been a reason for it. So I sat tight, accepted that that was the current situation- but only the current situation. I held myself accountable for the parts that was my fault.Continue reading “Gratitude: The Beginning of A Beautiful Story”

Maybe We’re Crazy…

My Tribute To Gnarles Barkley’s “Crazy” (as it pertains to my journey). I remember the first time I went to Venice Beach after moving to Los Angeles. At that point, I didn’t know anyone in town, and I was more or less a loner. But this was Los Angeles, pre Covid-19. Anything that I couldContinue reading “Maybe We’re Crazy…”

Kanye West vs. Chrisette Michele

What’s up everyone! Yes, I’ve been away for a while, as I am still getting acclimated to my new surroundings.  Things are going swell and I am adjusting well.  I plan to get back to blogging regularly very soon. I was recently sent this article, the author is a really good friend of mine. HisContinue reading “Kanye West vs. Chrisette Michele”

Discovering Your Happy Place

The Definition of Freedom Is An Individual Understanding One of my favorite places in Los Angeles is Venice Beach.  That area is pretty much an amalgamation of every culture and subculture that you can imagine.  I call it the “Hippie Haven” because the people who live and work on Venice Beach are so free.  TheyContinue reading “Discovering Your Happy Place”

Finding Your Inner Strength

It Takes Strength To Be Strong I’ve been away from Afrologik for the last couple of weeks, and I apologize for that.  As I’ve written in former articles, I was in the process of moving to Los Angeles.  The weeks leading up to that transition kept me very busy (as I’m sure you all canContinue reading “Finding Your Inner Strength”

The Power of Influence: What Kind of Impact Do You Have On Others?

What Is Your Life’s Theme? I’ve always been a lover of music, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve always chosen special songs as my personal theme songs.  When I was younger, the songs would always express vanity (half jokingly, half seriously). For a example, in the past I had chosen songs like:Continue reading “The Power of Influence: What Kind of Impact Do You Have On Others?”

Identifying Behaviors: 5 Silent Behaviors

Being Aware of What They Don’t Say Oftentimes, human beings have much to say without saying anything at all.  Our behaviors says a lot about our character and intentions.  As the saying goes, “actions speak louder than words“.  (As I’ve said in other blogs, I can’t stand cliches and platitudes.) If you seriously pay attentionContinue reading “Identifying Behaviors: 5 Silent Behaviors”

The Relationship Between Love And Hate

I Love You/ I Hate You I thought I understood the concepts of love and hate.  I thought they were polar opposites, but I was wrong.  Not only are love and hate NOT polar opposites, but they’re bed buddies. The other day, I thought about my friend and how through right or wrong, thick orContinue reading “The Relationship Between Love And Hate”

Moving Through Life’s Phases

Life Has A Track List When you’re making plans to move on to the next phase of life, or when you are close to a goal that you’ve set for yourself, Murphy’s law is in full effect — anything that can go wrong, will go wrong (or so it seems).  The people in your lifeContinue reading “Moving Through Life’s Phases”
