Only You Can Reveal Who Truly You Are.

Find Freedom In You.

When people fail to do right by us or to treat us the way we expect to be treated its because we haven’t allowed them to see who we truly are… When we reveal who we are we only attract people on the frequency that we’re on..then harmonious relationships can commence because of the genuine interaction that’s allowed to take place..when we shine brilliant and real..no one can come close enough to take anything off our tree..<3 you’re free to be..continue to reveal as you discover the real you that is all things and also no things at the same time..bliss and blessingsImage

To Our Brothahs: Allow A Woman To Be ~

Brothahs’ if you meet a woman and she has a strong personality she’s probably a leader. If you don’t like those type of women then you should find another type..don’t come and try to change a leader or any other type of woman for that matter..cause we have a Whole Lot of Work to Do out here..and diluting ourselves for someone isn’t a part of the work we came here to do…<3 If you’re not secure with you…get with it before you look for strong women because we are only going to get stronger with time..we gotta be one support for one another so it’s a WIN/ WIN situation, know that….and come correct with the ladies…Peace!

Food For Thought

Folks are where they are for a DIVINE reason..trying to change a person’s destiny is futile..a waste of time and energy..but Supporting those who are sent to you to assist are the ones’ who need you most of all…no coincidences on this planet exist, except for the ones on our fantasies…be gentle with your fellow man..so many don’t have a clue what you’re talking about because they are walking their paths and not yours..one day we will all understand it all but for now be a pillar of love and strength for those who need you…peace. <3 you can heal people easier with water than fire..mind your words..the world is transforming and deeply healing

1 of 9 in Series: The Essentials of Finding and Applying for a Grant

Laying out a funding development plan is the first step to becoming proactive in grant seeking and grant writing. Both non-profit and for-profits organizations can benefit from a good plan for getting funding. Here are the parts of an all-purpose funding development plan:

Mission statement: A mission statement tells funders your purpose or vision for being a structured nonprofit or for-profit organization. The mission statement should include the name of your organization, its structural status (nonprofit or for-profit), the year it was formed, and its purpose (reason for organization).

Make this statement clear and impactful, reflecting your vision. If you already have a mission statement, maybe it creates more confusion than clarity. Take a long look at your existing mission statement and ask yourself whether you need to rewrite that statement.

Assessment of funding needs: What programs and services do you want to offer? Where is the funding coming from — internal or external sources? Ask and answer questions about your organization’s financial strengths, as well as its financial weaknesses. Also, consider what funding opportunities are available to your organization and what threats to funding your organization faces.

Funding goals: How much money do you need to raise from external funding sources for each program or service?

Your goals should be global and futuristic; they should describe where you want to be when the grant money runs out.

Funding objectives: What benchmarks do you want to set to assure that you reach these funding goals?

Your goals can’t stand alone. You’ll never accomplish anything if your goals aren’t supported by objectives. Objectives act as benchmarks or reference points; they’re measurable steps that must be taken in order to achieve your goals. And every goal must have at least one objective.

Action plan: What are the annual tasks, over three to five years, that must be completed in order to make your funding development plan a reality?

In the action plan part of your organization’s funding development plan, you need to sort your funding needs into categories of for each program or service that needs external funding or grant monies.

Monitoring and evaluation of funding objectives: How can your organization track and prove that the project’s measurable objectives were met and at what levels? What are your evaluation tools?

You need to determine how your organization will track and evaluate your funding plan’s objectives. In this part of the funding development plan, make sure to mention who’ll conduct the monitoring and evaluation activities and who’ll see or review the evaluation findings or reports.

After you write your funding development plan, stick to it. Before writing any grant requests, first make sure that the grant fits into your plan. Be organized, stay focused, and follow your funding plan’s road map to success and stability.

Meditate and Grow Rich For Life!

If you’re searching for one factor that can alter your life right away, and even Favorably and generously then Meditation is what you want. The extensive collection of meditation rewards can be witnessed from both near and far. You most likely feel tranquil at the moment merely from the idea of meditation, now don’t you? I’m not going to tell you that you don’t have a very good reason to feel peaceful about meditation. It’s been clinically proven that when you take time to reflect during your day, your health has the potential to get better overnight. Let’s talk about the benefits of taking a break during the day to you, in short the gains to your body, mind and spirit are going to be huge. I know you can use a break to catch your breath each day. If you want to get back your day, you can do it! Meditation is for more than simply sitting down and taking a couple deep breaths of air. Meditation is a dynamic bonus, of yoga breathing, focus, rhythmic motion, programming new behavior responses, erasing unwanted emotional patterns, visualization and  the list goes on from there. Meditation can afford you with the time to get your life just the way you want it by at least visualizing what you want while you’re deep in a trance state. Whatever you want to change or improve about your life can be done while you’re deep in a meditation. The speed  you can change your life depends on your efforts to success. The best thing about introspection is that it’s a personal accountability thing. Whatever happens is solely on you and your intention. You get out of meditation whatever you put in.
