Time, Support, and Love Heals All Wounds

The healing begins where the wound was made – Alice Walker

There will be times when the pain of losing or being hurt is so severe that healing seems inconceivable. Although you may not have reached your goals, although you may have missed an opportunity, there is always the chance to heal yourself from the hurt so that you can try again.

Before the summer, I purchased two plants from my next-door neighbor: a tomato plant and a cayenne pepper plant. The plants had been plotted into two separate 5-gallon buckets. They were perfect because I didn’t have to dig a garden in my backyard and I still had fresh food within walking distance of my house.

Both plants began to grow enormous in size. Every time I walked outside there was a new tomato or pepper sprouting! Unfortunately, the tomatoes were so heavy that the branches supporting them began to break away from the main stem. The tomatoes were being stunted in growth because they weren’t getting enough water from the main stem.

My poor tomatoes needed water! I decided to use a piece of rope to support the branch that was splitting off. The rope was tied around the neck of the main stem and the branches that were falling.

After a week or so, the tomatoes started to grow again. Last week I went to check on the branch that was splitting. After removing the rope, I saw that the branch had reattached itself to the main stem! There was just small scar where it had healed itself.

My tomato plant continued to flourish. With a little love, support, and time it was able to regain its strength and produce beautiful food. Even though there was a small scar where the original tear had been, it was still beautiful.

A Note About Mentors

Your mentor is coming.

We at Osiris Organization know that in today’s time, a friendly face, a kind word, or a positive gesture can go a long way to elevate stress and inspire motivation. We were made to believe that strength and courage come with overcoming obstacles. No one wants to make you face those obstacles alone in order to overcome them.  

The most important thing about finding a mentor is accepting the idea that a mentor could help you. Mentors come in all forms through all avenues in our lives. They can show up at our jobs or someone can send a person to us.

The important thing to remember is that you are worth someone’s time and energy. If you feel as if your life is going to plan, now is the perfect time to mentor another person in the right direction.

You can change to world, one person at a time, or someone can change your world.

Please watch the beginning of this woman’s journey about how her mentor gave her a new outlook on life. Share it with anyone who could use a boost in his or her life.

Happy Father's Day!

Today is the day to give the men in your life the admiration they deserve. There are many men who have not had children of their own, but have stepped up to the plate when a child needed them.

The men surrounding us have all given us something of extraordinary value at one point in our lives; otherwise, they wouldn’t be in our lives! That value was presented in more forms than one. We’ve seen it presented as words, gifts, actions, touches and time. Each moment has been saved so that we may give that same affection to our own children someday.

This Father’s Day is special because today we are going to give our love to our fathers, uncles, brothers, friends, elders, and mentors.  Any man who has made a difference in your life has fathered your spirit. They made you a priority. They have protected and provided for you as a man should.

We must dedicate the time to love our fathers, our men, for they took the time to love us. They have forever altered us and they should see the wonders they have created.

Going to See Hidden Colors 4 - By Any Means Necessary

My husband had bought tickets to see Hidden Colors 4 one month ago and the day had finally arrived!

Tariq Nasheed, black filmmaker and lecturer, has become known for producing the Hidden Colors documentaries. Each documentary elaborated on the importance of knowing true African and African American history. 

We owned each movie and now the fourth one was officially coming to theaters!

After dropping my son off at school I headed to work, already dressed for this evening. Within seconds of turning the corner on a residential street, a car came zooming toward me and I was forced to run my car off of the road . . . and into the side of a house.

I arrived at the hospital dehydrated and screaming in pain. Doctors would later say that my knee popped out and back into place when the car made an impact with the chimney. 

My mother stopped in to see me later in the afternoon. She’d seen me in hospitals before and knew I was stubborn when it came to modern medication, crutches, braces, or whatever else the doctors wanted to give me to make me feel better.

I looked at her after my knee was bandaged up and said, “Yes. I’m still going to the movie.”

“You can’t even bend your knee! How are you going to sit down in a theatre for more than an hour?” she asked.

Little did she know that I had already asked my husband to call the theatre and reserve the handicap seating for us.

Overall, my mindset is that if we don’t support our black businesses, entrepreneurs, historians, or anyone else trying to make a difference, how will these people ever make the difference that deserves to be made?

It was my mission to see that movie no matter what. It was more than losing out on the money we paid for the tickets. It was about making sure that we were able to give Hidden Colors 4 the undivided attention it deserved.
