Forward Progression

Success is in reach. Whoever said the words "light at the end of the tunnel", said it best. For quite some time it seemed as though every room I went into was dark, light only shining on others and leaving me in a dim existence. At times the only thing that kept me hopeful was the care and concern from people whom took the time to reassure me that everyone goes through phases.

Greatness is the result of struggle and perseverance. I feel alive again. I feel capable, willing, and able. I have come to realize that all three of those must line up in order for me to reach the places I would like to go, and be able to bring along the few who care to join. I am overwhelmed everyday by reverence.
I remember a time when that wasn't so - when I was so far gone that opposite wasn't attractive and right wasn't a consideration; not too many things were. Narrow-minded, ever thought of what that means? I could hit you with websters depiction, but I can simplify it by letting you know that I was the epitome of that.

No longer. A new day is upon us. Watch me progress.

When Billboards Go Too Far

When walking the streets of NYC's SOHO, there's a few things you can expect to see. Wacky outfits - sure, an anti-abortion billboard that reads

The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.
- maybe that's pushing it. But this is no analogy, the billboard is real and was put up by Life Always. The pro-life company is riling up New Yorkers, and African Americans worldwide.

The Life Always website even goes far enough to say "There is a battle being waged in the United States that has taken more lives than any foreign war or act of terrorism." If you ask me, this goes without saying that African Americans are terrorists and their weapon of mass destruction is the abortion clinic. It's such a shame what measures people will take to gain some attention. There are better ways to go about being an advocate for pro-life. But to deface an entire race to do so isn't right at all. Take a look at the ABC video below as they speak with NY'ers who were shocked by the billboard. Happy watching!

We're interested in hearing your opinion on this issue. Comment!

BHM Little Known Fact: Buffalo Soldiers

"I'm just a buffalo soldier in the heart of America. Stolen from Africa, brought to America, said he was fighting on arrival, fighting for survival...said he was a buffalo soldier win the war for America."

If you know those words, you know they come from the late, Bob Marley. I never actually listened to the lyrics of the song but reading them today let's you know the history behind the term "Buffalo Soldier".

Did you know: Buffalo Soldiers is the name given to the all-black regiments of the U.S. Army started in 1866?

More than 20 Buffalo Soldiers received the highest Medal of Honor for their service — the highest number of any U.S. military unit. The oldest living Buffalo Soldier, Mark Matthews, died at the age of 111 in 2005. Incredible!

This give's Marley's song a whole new meaning, huh?

eyeInspire: Do Good

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. - Galatians 6:9-10 NIV
What does it mean to be an outsider? To fall outside of the norms set by society? To go against the grain? To do good when those around you aren't? I would say all of the above. For many, being an outsider is one of the hardest decisions you can be faced with. But, as I have come to see it, being outside of the box people place you in, and doing good is far more important than doing what's "in" or cool.

Living in a world that places temptations in front of you everyday is challenging.  How are you to do right when so much wrong is sitting in front of your face? For me, that motivation come from the harvest I know I will reap from doing the good works. At times this walk becomes tiring and there are times where one may say - I'm done, but in any race or competition, we weren't meant to give up in the middle, but to continue until the end.

Although this walk is hard, if we don't faint, we'll see the fruits of our labor at the end. Only to persevere in well-doing is the reward promised. We shouldn't focus on what will come out of the bad things that we've done, but what God things will come out of the GoOD that we do. Today, eyeInspire you to do good.

When Love Hurts...

I was sitting on the phone with a friend who was having trouble in her relationship. Like any serious argument, she became flustered, cried, and expressed anger. She also sounded extremely tired.

Not long after she vented to me, her nose began to bleed. Now I’m not saying that her conflicts with her “boo” caused this to happen, but I was reminded of one thing when it comes to love: it may hurt at times, but it should never kill your spirit.

I understand the saying that “nothing worth having isn’t worth fighting for”, but if you find yourself investing emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially, and mentally into another person to the point it takes a toll on your body, you may want to revaluate your situation.

Excuse me while I take it there: the Bible says that “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-7).
Nowhere in there does it say “abuse”. Now you may not be a Christian, but I am pretty sure that most religions do not include settling for anyone that says “I love you” in their doctrine either.

Yes we are human beings who make mistakes so no one is capable of having the “perfect” lover. And yes, sometimes there will be conflict.
However, we must hold each other accountable, and be real with ourselves if we are not truly happy in a relationship.
Do not make excuses for someone’s wrong behavior toward you.
Your well-being is worth more than someone else’s insecurity, unresolved childhood issues, or bad habits.
It’s true: A study from the University of Texas conducted with rabbits found that healthy love can reduce plaque buildup in your arteries, which reduces the overall risk of heart attack.

So just imagine what bad love can do to you….
Transform and renew your mind, and no one else's.
Your heart was created for you as a gift.
Therefore, the person you give it to should always cherish the present.

Ya dig?

The 'Write' Food

Spring is almost around the corner! Are you looking for a way to lose weight?

Here’s a tip: write your meals down!
I never thought of doing this until I began working on a film set and found myself constantly surrounded by food-GOOD FOOD.

Every hour on the hour, the craft service (small meal-makers) would bring out an assortment of petite meals to eat.

At first, I thought I was in Heaven. After all, a bite or two of a taco won’t hurt much right?

Besides the larger catering service that served an array of larger meals twice a day, I found myself running over to the serving table and looking forward to the next time I was going to eat.

Before I knew it, I had gained weight in places I never knew I could gain weight in!

To help ease my excitement for food, I began to write down every single thing I ingested into my body, and created a simple color-coded log with Microsoft Excel.

When I realized how much I ate, and how much of it was bad for me, I definitely slowed down, and was able to plan what type of foods I would eat and when I would consume them.

Though I did not write down calories, and other specific details, looking at the names of foods was enough for me to become conscious of what I eat, and why I should take better care of myself.

Now, you don’t have to create yours exactly the way I did, but a food diary or simple note taking of your meals can do the trick as well.

Try it out and then drop a buzz.

eyeInspire: Love Your Enemies

"You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?" - Matthew 5:43-47 NIV

How many of us can say that we've been hurt by someone before? How many people in this world have enemies? Some of these things go without saying, and as easy as it may be to hurt those who hurt us, or hate those who hate us, we are instructed to love them. If the world lived by the words "An eye for an eye", we'd all be blind. It's so much easier to live a loving life. When you love your enemies, you'll throw them off, and sooner or later, they'll have no reason to hate you. If you choose to love those who have crossed you, they'll soon be convicted by your love for them. Am I saying loving those who have went against us is the easiest thing to do, no! Love is not only a noun, but it's a verb and so much more.

If you find it hard to find love for others, think about the love God has for us. How many times have we gone against His Word and his Basic Instructions? How many times have we disappointed him, yet and still, he wakes us up in the morning out of pure love. He blesses us with so much, although we don't deserve it. Think back at what you may have done yesterday or even last week, did you really deserve God's love from cursing someone out, stealing, lying, or cheating? Of course not, but because God loves us so much, He will always provide for us and never stop loving us. 

You can never be too kind or loving to someone. In fact, most of us don’t show enough love and kindness to people around us. Being kind helps us to cultivate other qualities such as compassion, patience, and love. Start exuding more kindness to the people around you, and see how they react. Not only that, notice how you feel as you behave kindly to others. Chances are, you will feel even better than yourself. Today, eyeInspire you to love your enemies, be kind, exude love.

BHM SpotLight: The Cosby Show

Growing up, we all have our favorite television sitcom. Although this element of television is lacking in today's generation due to reality TV, I thank God for syndication and The Cosby Show. The Cosby Show has always been a favorite of mine. Why? Because it did a lot for television and the African-American culture. The Cosbys were an African-American upper-middle class family. With a mother who was a lawyer and a father who was a doctor, it gave African Americans hope that these titles were accessible. The show gave viewers something to take from each show through serious and comedic methods. The show touched on an array different topics, like dating, drinking, sex, college, home ownership, school and much more.

Here's a little known fact: Comedian Bill Cosby's 1984 sitcom, The Cosby Show, became the highest ranking sitcom for 5 years in a row. The program aired for eight years.

Amazing! Where's this type of television now?!

eyeWatch: "Forget You"

By far, the best performance at the 2011 Grammy Awards was "Forget You" by Grammy award winner Cee-Lo Green ft. Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. The performance was comical, colorful and full of character. The song, originally "F*** You" is single released off of Cee-lo's album The Lady Killer, released a few months ago in 2010. It's a great song - if you take away the intentions of it - nevertheless, lately you know you have a hit on your hands if your song appears on the hit show, Glee. Some may have been surprised by Paltrow's musical abilities, but in a recent episode of Glee she not only proved that she's a good actress, but that she can too hold a note. So for those of you who thought the Grammys were a bit lackluster, I couldn't agree more, but this performance made me smile. Happy watching!

eyeSpot: Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals

Our eyes kicked off fashion week at the adidas Originals store in SOHO of NYC this week. Adidas celebrated fashion week as they launched their new denim originals collection. They also premiered the Spring/Summer 2011 Jeremy Scott apparel and footwear.  Many eyes came out to the event ans showcased their Adidas gear. We had mode, Tina Roe tag along as she showcased some of the pieces featured in the adidas store. Some employees and other event-goers also posed for our camera showing off their Adidas apparel.

If you know anything about fashion designer Jeremy Scott, you know that he's known for his outgoing, yet original design aesthetic.
He first partnered up with adidas Originals in late 2008. If you associate the word "fly" with anything, it'll be with JS and his signature "Wings". He's worked with pop stars and sure knows how to bring the pop to a pair of sneakers.With triple-tongues, fire-blowing and iridescent sneakers all already in the vault, the Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals line will assuredly continue to bring outlandish designs to the forefront of kicks culture.

Raffled off at the event were teddies, not teddy bears, but the adidas x Jeremy Scott's Teddy Bear sneakers. They're just as comfy as they look, and they're made for both men and women.

eyeInspire: Build!

"...Keep a sharp eye out for competent men—men who fear God, men of integrity, men who are incorruptible—and appoint them as leaders over groups organized by the thousand, by the hundred, by fifty, and by ten." - Exodus 18:21 (The Message)

Whether it's a church, blog, family, sports team, or small business, in order to ensure growth and success, a team is needed. Sometimes the word "team" scares people and I can see many reasons why. How many of us have trust issues when it comes to building a team? How many of us just prefer to get everything done on our own? Who has the dependency issues? Who's tried to build a team, but saw it fall apart before your eyes?  I raised my hand a couple of times, but I've come to learn that having a team builds you and your character.

When building a team, it's very important that you build a team that is capable of accomplishing what your purpose is. You also want to build a team that is willing to share the burden with you. Build up a team who cultivates kindness - those who pursue what is good. Be willing to give yourself to others. Philippians 2:1-4 illustrates giving ourselves to one another without another selfish ambition or conceit. We should see  others higher than we see ourselves. Make yourself available to meet and help each others' needs.

Build a team around you that is like-minded, and share the same purpose. Find people of integrity, who are trustworthy: people who don't slander, don't harm other, who honor God's word and his followers, make firm commitments, who are honest. When we live like this, we live in the spirit of God. This makes it easy for people to trust us, as they trust God. Communicate openly: be open & honest with one another. Invest in one another: give your time and effort in helping others develop to their fullest potential. There's nothing like a team who works hard for one another. Who give without intention of getting something in return, and share resources. Once you have a team like this around you, you'll be able to accomplish anything you .

God puts a lot on us sometimes, but His plan isn't for us to go through life alone. You can get a lot done on your own, but imagine how much you can do when you build an empire. Remember, there's no I in team - unless it's an eye ;)

Aid a Friend: Spread the Message

Although National Black HIV/AIDs Awareness Day has passed, your consciousness shouldn’t. According to the CDC, African-Americans are the leading cause of all HIV/AIDs cases in the United States.

As of 2006, African-American men counted six times higher than white men for cases of new HIV infection, and African-American women counted nearly a whopping 15 times higher than white females.

Furthermore, from 2005-2008, the rate of HIV diagnoses rose from 68/100,000 to 74/100,000 making this number the largest increase of infection in a given ethnicity/race.

Seriously, what’s the buzz?
It is my belief that socioeconomic factors affect African-Americans harsher than other races, which contribute to high numbers. In other words: Poverty → poor housing → lack of healthcare → lack of education on prevention → not using protection or sharing of needles during drug use → infection spreads → fear (people will not seek help because they are afraid of others finding out) → death → HIGHER NUMBERS.

So what can we do? It’s simple: spread the message by educating yourself and others. 

Ways HIV is spread
*Sexual Intercourse
*Anal sex
*Oral Sex
*Injected drug use
*Blood transfusion
*Mother-to-child breast milk

Ways to prevent
*Abstinence: 100% proof against catching HIV/AIDs.
*Be in a monogamous relationship: Communicate with your partner and be honest about your sexual history. It can save your life and his/hers.
*Safe sex is unlike the rest: Any condom with spermicide for anal, vaginal or oral penetration. Lesbians may wish to use a dental dam, a thin latex square, for oral sex.
*If you work in healthcare: I’m pretty sure they drill this but you are at risk as well. Wearing medical latex or non-latex gloves when you come into contact with a patient’s urine, blood, or semen, or feces can protect you.
*Do not share needles: Ever!
*Stop with the stereotypes: HIV/AIDs doesn’t discriminate and neither should you.
*GET TESTED! If you are sexually active, you need to check your status, and more than once in a year.

BHM Spotlight: Lady With a RedEye

This month, our EYES are on a woman who far exceeded expectations, and has allowed us to SEE in a whole new light: Patricia Bath.

Once a resident of Harlem, Bath became an ophthalmologist, and was the first African-American female doctor to patent a medical invention.
Her hard work allowed her to create a method to remove cataract lenses, which would convert eye surgery by using a laser contraption (laserphaco) instead of a drill-like machine.

In the 1970s, she was the first African-American female surgeon at UCLA Medical Center, and the first woman to be on the faculty of the UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute. She is also the founder and first president of the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness. Because of Bath, people who could not see for over 20 years could receive their eyesight.

eyeInspire: Control Your Speech

A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell. This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can't tame a tongue—it's never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth! - James 3:3-10 (The Msg)

This scripture alone says it all. The tongue is such a small part of our bodies, yet you can speak death or life with it. Most of the problems we face are due to our tongue. With our tongues, we lie, agree to commit sinful behaviors, and/or curse others.  You may say, "If no human can control the tongue, then why try?" Because with our tongues, we should be praising God, speaking words of encouragement to others, and bringing positive thoughts to life.

Think about what speaking negatively gets you. I'm sure nothing good comes from it. Thinking about it even further, you have to realize that you hinder your relationship with God and others. Speak kind words to one another. For the bible says: Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that's your job, to bless. You'll be a blessing and also get a blessing. - 1 Peter 3:8-9 (The Msg)

There's so much power in the tongue, so today eyeInspire you to control your speech.

eyeInspire: Break!

"My sacrifice [the sacrifice acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart [broken down with sorrow for sin and humbly and thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise." Psalm 51:17

Whether it's a broken heart or the fact that you're "broke", almost everyone can relate to being broken in some aspect of life. Often times when we think of being broken in a negative light; however, when speaking spiritually, being broken is a great thing. When we allow ourselves [flesh] to break, we are in full submission to God. Our sacrifice gives Him an open invitation to come in and heal us in the areas we need most.

When something is broken, we have choices as to what we'll do with it: Leave it broken, try to fix it ourselves, or call someone to fix it. How many of you have had a toilet that was broken? Maybe you tried to fix it yourself, and in result you end up with a flood; leading you to call the plumber. Why not call the plumber in the first place? Maybe it's too expensive, but the plumber knows what to do best. In addition to fixing the initial problem, the plumber also has the power to fix the mess you made in result of trying to fix the problem yourself.

Apply this example to your own life. Let God take control. Sure, it may cost you a few "friends" or bad habits, but those are the things you can afford to give up. When you allow yourself to be broken, you give way to a breakthrough. God will fix you and make you better than before. He will take all that was Out of Order, and put things in order! Hard hearts are easier to break.

Have you been broken? Do you feel yourself breaking?
Feel free to comment and share your experience/breakthrough.

Why Won't You Kiss Me?

I’m going to guess the answer to that question is because your breath stinks! I hope no one has ever had to go through a situation like this with a significant other. But just in case you have, before you try to tongue him/her down with your bacteria, here are some tips to avoid halitosis (aka bad breath)
Check those dental habits!

· Do you brush your teeth at least twice a day with toothpaste that has fluoride?
· Do you brush your tongue?
· Do you replace your toothbrush every 2-3 months?
· Do you use floss to remove plaque and other particles from your teeth at least once a day?
· Do you see your dentist at least twice a year so that s/he can check for any oral problems/concerns and give you a proper cleaning?
· Do you smoke or chew tobacco products?
· Do you drink lots of water?
· Do you chew sugarless gum over other types?

If you answered “NO" to any of these questions, you might want to get yourself to respond with a "YES".
If none of these things work, bad breath could also be a sign of gum disease, pneumonia, bronchitis, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, postnasal drip, liver and kidney problems, or chronic sinus infections.

Also, keep in mind mouthwashes only mask bad odor. There are some antiseptic ones that kill germs in your mouth, but it is best to ask your dentist which is best for you.

Valentine’s Day is a kiss away BizzyBodies!
Open your mouth at your own risk.
