“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”
Anyone who knows me, knows I love acronyms, rhymes, and jingles.
Team. It’s such a powerful concept. There is no “I” in team. Together Everyone Achieves More.
Notice I said the word “concept.” When people work together, more is achieved. Period. Let’s turn
concept into fruition, shall we?
Families are in actuality a Team. Actually the number one team.
Don’t worry girls, I gotcha back, I’ll send a memo right away informing them who the team captain
is for this life time. It’s mostly a one man or shall I say a one women show. Wink. Not a team
effort. Therefore families are suffering.
Diving even deeper. Friendship. Women. Yes you, me, us. We are a “team” a “tribe” if you will.
Women in general don’t act like it. I’ll say it again. She’s my sister, not my competition. This
“teamwork” gig was actually the biggest catalyst in creating the Be Amazing Movement,
A Safe Haven.
You get to a certain point in your life, I won’t say age (it’s just a number) when you assess your
life, your friends. Remember, I’m loyal by default, and truly a team player.
If you look hard enough people will show you their true colors. Actually don’t look too hard. It’s
right there in front of you. I found myself continuously shocked and sadden with some chick’s
behavior in my very own posse. Then it hit me. Truly as if a two by four smacked me across the
forehead. I want more. I deserve more. If you are not playing on my team good luck to ya. Remember
we own our own baggage… Therefore we own our circumstances. You don’t enjoy your current
circumstances? Then change them.
One of my favorite movies is Remember the Titans. (I have a lot of favorites) That movie stirred my
soul. During segregation, members of a football team came together to win. Against all odds.
Against all critics.

Have you ever noticed how children get along. They don’t see color, race, socio-economic
differences. They live in the moment. They’ll tell you if they don’t like you and move on. Again,
out at the mouth of babes. I don’t have time anymore for petty bullshit. Remember, I am on a
different path now. Correction we are. #BAM
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is
the only thing that ever has.”
Action Item –
Since none of us is as smart as all of us, we need to lock arms. We need to band together and make
a difference. Let someone else try a piece of our amazing #Pie.
Permission. Inspiration. Empowerment.
Reach out to a friend today, a soul sistah, and tell them how greatly you appreciate their
friendship and support over the years. Share with them one of your “aha moments” from our challenge
thus far. They will
smile. Better yet, they will thank you, then they will Join You. #LikeABoss Giggle.
