Moving you forward one step at a time

Music with or without words must have a…

BASE BEAT…an underlying rhythm… it is what makes each song unique when our music has words we tell the story of the beat…

Here Ola shares his Caribbean-base beat and how his musical energy had this lady-diva responding to him… but he too shares in song how the females own base beat, how her musical energy was winning him over… it was one X-factor meeting another X-factor

Mind Music & Mental Health 

Today and every day, we choose our base beat, would it be jazzy, heavy rock, the blues, sultry, soca beat, techno, rocky reggae…whichever we choose it is giving out energy… Ola gave a good showing of his, and we even right now are giving a showing of ours, and it would determine who we attract and who we don’t…

This year … a bold move for World Mental Health Day…

Right back to the Basics…

Our Young People… 

what, why, where, do we go around thinking that life is all ‘fun and games’ for all our children and upcoming youth…well the info is there before 14 half of mental health concerns show up…

Let us add by around age 7, the personality is formed and fairly stable…

So let’s take it back to basics

Musical Mindset…

  • “tell everybody I reach, I coming inside right now!” … far too often as adults we might not take the time to appreciate just how much children ‘suck up’ the emotional climate of their environment and so we continue on with the conflicts, or whatever is happening…but when that child reaches, the child needs ’emotional safety and calm’ and if the environment is not ready to offer that, well the child literally ‘suffers’ through it but sooner or later the distress would show
  • Back to Basics … one of the biggest safeguards for children and youth is to feel good to say ” I am …. ….” and that comes when we from very early help in developing that pride in how they look, accepting all their thoughts and feelings as important and disciplining always in loving calmness
  • Back to Basics… our children come into a very competitive World but before they can get to that and deal well with it, they need our support through connection to bring forward their creativity that would point out their unique skills and talents
  • Back to BASICS… really take in the video… our objective is to basically keep children for the main part happy… not happy as in spoilt…but happy as in finding awe interest wonder and pleasantness as the learn and experience life
  •  Back to BASICS… “way before Facebook could post it…” far too many of our children are crying out for attention and connection on the social media… way before Facebook, there was family-time, chats with children by allowing them to feel free to approach us the adults

#WorldMentalHealthDAy 2018

Music Motivation & Mindset, what do these 3 have in common…

Musically melodies, what we sing about, who hears the music are all full of almost endless possibilities  

Motivation is that which moves us forward and motivation leads to outcomes that are also full of possibilities 

Mindset, once it is open aka having a growth mindset, leads to a great many directions and opportunities for growth

When Music Mindset & Motivation come together we get…Multicultural Music … the music is able to evolve…

In football, they chant Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole! for those moments of excit,emt…

And now looking on at this Trinbago-Caribbean national, we find all those M’s … Ola! Ola! Ola! 

 

 

It has been found that in our World of many races ethnicities and cultures, it’s important to our #mentalhealth to have a positive #raceidentity and #ethnicidentity … how easy is it for ‘blacks’ to have a good race identity with all the negativity around ‘black’? and how do ‘blacks’ get to a positive ethnic identity if there is no acknowledging of where they came from…after all …

 

So at the final of the CPL! what makes that difference…

does the best team always win… https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=237&v=5DGlNlQ_P3E 

“all-round performance outstanding means nothing in the finals…”

now, why would a renowned sportsman like Brian Charles Lara make such a comment…hmmm…

so can Trinbago Knight Ridershttps://wired868.com/2018/09/16/cpl-18-trinis-to-throng-tarouba-to-see-triumphant-tkr-trounce-warriors/

We live in a global village, a multicultural society. Is it not interesting then that while we recognize more than a colour for other racial and ethnic groups we retain the idea of ‘blacks’ for persons of African Heritage and ‘whites’ for persons of European Heritage. What is the social impact? Is it that All “Blacks” Are “Oreos”?

So we’ve reached the Playoffs of the Caribbean Premier League 2018https://www.cricbuzz.com/cricket-series/2717/caribbean-premier-league-2018/matches

Is it any surprise to have the Trinbago Knight Riders reach this far? 

when they have a Champion Chanting Captain… what does that teach about this team’s #carryon…

first, let’s listen to the lyrics…this captain respects his opponents as worthy and champions in their own right, without excluding himself…. we expect then that he would inspire this same sort of #sportsmanship within his colleagues of TKR and also appreciate that victory is about bringing your best game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y963o_1q71M from who is part of the team, to the line up for every match…

though some have wondered about whether there are times when the lineup choices were wanting …  https://wired868.com/2018/09/12/cpl-18-a-6-for-a-9-how-amazon-warriors-left-dj-bravos-tkr-no-more-margin-for-error/

and well if that be the case, guess which team is sure to tackle that?

Firstly, with a name such as Guyana Amazon Warriors could we expect anything but this team is a team to contend with… what’s in a name…oh just the blueprint and well in this teams case the teal-print of how the team thinks about itself…

but that’s not all…any team coming up against the Guyana Amazon Warriors must understand the psychological power of the #carryon in a team that has often been ‘the bridesmaid but never this bride’ this team already with their teal print warrior spirit have that boosted determination to go where they have never gone before…https://wired868.com/2018/09/11/guyanas-warriors-triumph-again-tkr-face-eliminator-on-friday-after-dramatic-loss-in-providence/

Maybe this team is going to give this Champion Chanting Captian some new lyrics for version two…

Making a ‘come-back’ of any kind big or small is no tiny feat!

Now add to this, being on the field and feeling wronged, we are human as we play our sport and in the game of life!

so we pause! and choose between the 2 s’s

SILENCE!

SPEAK! then like Serena we choose to #speakup and #speakout after all what could be so off? so wrong ? with a simple respectful expression…https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/09/us/serena-williams-sexism-tennis-controversy/index.html

in the game of tennis, as in the game of life, we have persons holding positions, be then the referee, the umpire, or any other authority figure… and they can after we choose ‘s’ for #speak make decisions to test our #carryon in a very real way…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRa8kp_1zvI but as Serena showed #sportsmanship, so too in the game of life we can display good sportsmanship while continuing to choose when to speak and when to remain silenthttps://www.news.com.au/sport/tennis/naomi-osaka-on-serena-williams-match-i-felt-like-i-had-to-apologise/news-story/b58961f900a731e870a34da5a6b5d1d3

and the thing is … just as Serena would have had upcoming victor Naomi OSAKA looking on at her Serena’s behaviour, in the same way, others look on, as to how we deal with attempts by others to “cut us off” “reducing chances of us winning or achieving a ‘win’ ”

 

 

Sometimes people grow up experiencing extreme abuse and or neglect…

Eventually, these persons grow up with an “emptiness in the pit of their stomachs” feeling unlovable, unworthy, and so wanting to be loved, that they become whoever their partner desires…

The thing with this is for these persons, there is no love within, only the love from without, their partners and sometimes children that make life seem worth living…

and so the feeling if ever there is even a mild conflict, is that life is no longer worth living…

and if ever a partner does anything to threaten the relationship, these persons seek the ultimate way for their partner to prove their love…

They declare “if you leave me I will kill myself” … the idea is for the partner to prove their love for them, by staying with them, be saving their life literally…

At times if the relationship really shows no chance, these persons adopt an approach of “I will kill me to hurt you!” …

#mentalhealthchallenges need more than a partner who is manipulated … often the issue is a lack of #selflove #selfworth and finding a reason for life beyond or in addition to their main #realtionship…

It’s #WorldSuicidePreventionDay!
