Habari Gani?

Living life on purpose will allow you to live a fulfilled life. So often, people are not aware of their potential because of lack of knowledge and understanding of where they are from.  I’m not speaking of location, but the heritage of  strong lines of ancestry. Even if you still aren’t sure of your heritage it is knowing and believing that your higher power is your source of energy to perform the best you can be.

The 5th day of discussion is:

Nia  (NEE-ah): Purpose

To restore African-American people to their traditional greatness. To be responsible to Those Who Came Before (our ancestors) and to Those Who Will Follow (our descendants).

Habari gani?

African-Americans have come from a long line of strong, intelligent, and beautiful people. The culture is full of individuals who created a way out of nothing.  Sarah Breedlove a.k.a. Madame C.J. Walker become the first black female millionaire. Frederick Douglas was a leader in the abolitionist movement, orator and writer. Carter G. Woodson, pioneered “Negro History Week”, which is now celebrated as Black History Month.

The list goes on for those who did not make excuses, but created results.

It is the right of African-Americans to live life on purpose.
