Dealing Hope in Goldsboro, NC

As we continue developing new leaders in the Goldsboro area, today was a full day of pouring into our next generation. I had the opportunity to meet and share my journey with a great group of people.

In this picture, a few of us gather in Starbucks to talk about personal development and casting vision for the future. Talk about an exciting time!

While a lot happened over the past 12 hours, I am most appreciative of the trust, transparency, and vulnerability that was given today. Hearing some of these stories and the desperate need for HOPE really gave purpose to our effort. In this moment, I realize that we have a real opportunity and responsibility to help change lives. I LOVE that.

A Moment of Reflection Overlooking the Atlantic

The next morning, after a good night sleep, we walked back to the beach and just enjoyed the natural beauty of the ocean and soft sand. There was a slight breeze that flowed in off the water and embraced me in her arms.

It was during this moment that I thought about the journey thus far. Yes, there has been some successes, some failures, some wins, and some losses, but through it all there have been rewarding experiences that gave me lessons to live by.

I love where I am at this moment, but I also recognize that there is still so much more work to do, lives to help transform, dreams to chase, and goals to fulfill. This still moment was just a opportunity to reflect on where I've been and where I still have to go.

What I can tell you is that I am excited about where we're going and passionate about how we're going to get there. It was when I let go of my fear, ego, and simply embraced the thinking that out thinks me that I began to live a blessed life.

To all of my champions, it's time to start LIVING. We get one life, so let's make the most of it. Let's go!

Newbies In Paradise

Let me introduce you to Ms. Julie Hirschy and Mr. Kay Dupri. This was their first time visiting South Beach Miami, riding on a cruise ship, and visiting the Bahamas. It was clearly a trip of firsts for them.

What I enjoyed most about this getaway, outside of the relaxation and sun tan (hey, I needed it), was experiencing this vacation through their eyes. I got so much enjoyment watching their faces light up and beam with excitement. To top it all off, I was able to bring 5 newbies on this trip. Talk about making memories, we did that.

Today, as I reflect on our time together, each one of their lives has been touched. They faced their fears, opened their horizons, and solidified a plethora of new lifelong friendships. That brings me so much fulfillment knowing that I'm helping someone else improve their life in some way. We may never know the ripple effects that come from these types of experiences. Amazing!

"A day isn't wasted if a memory is created." It's time to start living. Let's get it!

Roasted Margarita Chicken from Mango's Tropical Cafe in South Beach Miami

Roasted Margarita Chicken from Mango's Tropical Cafe in Miami, Florida

After walking to the beach and then the South Beach strip, we caught up with friends and then sat down at Mango's Tropical Cafe for a bite to eat.

I ordered the Roasted Margarita Chicken, which was a half chicken marinated, roasted and grilled to a golden crispness served with yellow rice, black beans, and sweet plantains. Yummy!

First Night on South Beach Illuminated By Neon Lights

To begin our story, we have to go back to Thursday night when we arrived at South Beach Miami.

After dropping my bags off in the room, Kay, Julie, and I decided to take a walk to the beach, which is right across the street from the hotels. The sun was quickly setting and we were running out of daylight. As the sun disappears, Miami's night life begins to shine with neon lights. In this view, the beach is behind us and we're looking at the various restaurants and bars that line the strip.

It's quite common to see some very expensive cars and even celebrities strolling down the street. Each time I visit, there are a little of both present and accounted for.
