Don’t Talk About it…BE About it!

Don’t talk about it…be about it!

Finally! We started this blog!

Rayon and I, like most friends met in college and again like most college friends, are blown away by the wind to different corners of the earth. But thanks to fassbook (facebook) like most friends, re-connected.

(Diversion- who would have thought 15-20 yrs ago that people would be able to communicate with each other without having to go to the post office with letters and wait a week before the other party receives it! Communication was like… once a month! Yikes! THANK YOU TECHNOLOGY!)

Now where was I…ok, yea… fassbook.  Here we fass in people’s business; pretend we have the best business and tell people our business. Some talk about ANY and EVERYTHING!

Rayon likes to write posts that are very… ahm…controversial…quite thought provoking.  These spark vibrant debates from his facebook friends and of course, your truly (Dorraine) is always in the mix attempting to keep my arguments potent.

In the middle of one of these debates the grand idea “hey! Let’s start a website/blog or supm”  came to the fore.  That way we can engage other persons in our discussions instead of just our friends on our ‘private’ facebook page. (bbm rolling of eyes)

I fell in love with blogs while writing my master’s thesis. I would find articles that when I read over…and over…and over….and over… hell! Not a word I would understand. But lo and behold…blogs became the prince that rescued the damsel in distress through its simplicity expressed through the views of others. Though I love them for that reason I was still hesitant because I wondered if I had the discipline or “stick-to-it-tive-ness” but how will I know if I don’t try?

Rayon and I had the idea but didn’t act upon it. Both of us were not sure how the other would respond.  (You know when you haven’t seen or spoken to someone in years, you don’t know the level of change that has happened- Really Dorraine and Rayon. Kmt)

Don’t talk about it…BE about it!

The point is, the human mind is very good at conceiving ideas. But only talking about them will leave them just as those…ideas.  Find the will and power to do what you must to make the ideas become alive… worst case scenario, they may not work but you get up, “brush yourself off and try again”; best case, it works and you will “feel on top of the world”. So the point is, don’t just talk about it…BE about it.

As educators of change, Rayon and I decided to BE ABOUT IT and yeppieeee! It has happened. We intend to engage your mind, body and soul with our stimulating blogs (oh nooo.  This engagement and stimulation nothing like what my friend Lecia gaye describes in her blog “justgothitchednowwhat” about “releasing you inner sketel”  Go read it!)

In order to find out what we have to offer…saddle up, enjoy the journey with… Dorraine and Rayon at the reins…

Giddiup…hee haaaaa!

    Well said D. I too am in a quandary with ideas that keeps floating in my head and burning desire to pursue other avenues and is yet to “be about it”. As individuals we are so afraid of the ‘unknown’ and as a result accept the ‘known’ because it feels safe, yet we are not happy with it. So, here’s to “Don’t talk about it…Be about it”, only then will we have the right to brag about it!
