Holidays and new year

As we wind down these last few hours of the 2018 year, let’s show our gratitude and appreciation for family and friends. As I was able to make it back home to Fort Lauderdale for Christmas, it had not dawned on me how much I missed my family , and how much they missed me! From the conversations we had and the lovely home cooked meals prepared by my grandma, I was left in tears after a song came over the speakers saying how thankful he was to be alive and with family for the holidays. I felt that song in my soul and had to put my plate down and walk outside to avoid my family seeing me crying. The time we spent together was priceless, I really hope they know there will be many more times in the future for us to connect and embrace love together. Now that I am hours away from 2019, we just finished with a nice session at planet fitness to work off some of the holiday food and drinks so we can maintain our sense of balance and have even shares of work and play. I will be misleading you if I was to tell you that I am not preparing to celebrate and bring in the new year on a high note. I would recommend this approach to anyone. Surround yourself with family and friends and good times so we can assure the feeling and lifestyle we would like to carry into 2019 is nothing but good vibes and the things we want. Mindset masters are who we strive to become, because once you master your mind, there is no limitations on your life and you reach a level of freedom that only the divine creator ,who created us with such magical powers , can understand. Have a great day, have a better year, and let’s stay strong and courageous on our journey!

Always remember, LOVE CONQUERS ALL!!

Peace and Blessings!!

Sincerely,

Jalen Rose Academy

Greetings Family,

Yesterday I had the honor and privilege to teach at the Jalen Rose Academy in Detroit where I was the 10th grade English Teacher for the day. It was a great experience to say the least. A great experience for me as well as for the students. It really reminded me of being back home in Florida at Dillard High School, which is my Almamata.  Moreover, the day started off with an unexpected twist because I was actually assigned to teach at a different school until I got the call heading to the first school saying the request was canceled. As I parked my car and waited for an updated assignment, it came to my phone as 10th grade ELA needed at Jalen Rose Academy. I knew it would be a great day. We started with first class and I started by drawing my name on the board. Spell out Lyons and to express it below with a 5 to start, draw the surrounding mane, teeth, eyes, and ear to showcase the lion. The students all welcomed me and enjoyed the poem IF, by Rudyard Kipling as I have a background introduction of myself and a few of my past experiences. I also had to opportunity to pose the question and statement that stands near and dear to my heart. God = Love! “Why is it that we are not allowed to learn and teach about Love in school if Love is God and God is Love?” This question connected and grabbed the attention of the class and lead to my theme for the entire day. I was able to express my signs of love for God through poetry and expression and I encouraged the students to come up with poems of their own for self expression as a writing and English assignment. The students did a great job working together to come up with a class poem that expressed some of their thoughts and feelings while having the opportunity to talk about life with me as someone close enough in age with them to be a peer counselor. The students signs of appreciation for the class engagement activities were expressed by them passing up to me pieces of candy that was oooooo so good!!! 😋 lol it was almost like at a opera symposium when the ending ancore takes place and people throw roses on the stage. 🌹. In the third period there were a group of students really into poetry and the class spent its entirety sharing their personally written poems along with some of the poems they have found and read over the years. This was a great exercise and I will definitely use it in the future. Similar to the last School I was at when the last period had a student prodigy, this school experience was the same. Rather than a freestyle musician, this school had an engineer business entrepreneur who had already built numerous computers from scratch and started a business with his own website to attract clients. I have never seen a young man so intelligent and focused on business at such a young age in my life. I let him know how much he inspired me and the fact that I wanted him personally to reach out to my mentor so he could get the help and assistance he was looking for to launch his business and take his vision to the next level. We spent the entire class talking and sharing the platforms we both built and I was helping him to understand how he could better build his brand. This was the gift and calling that God has set up for all of these things to happen and all of us to meet and connect in divine timing. I was happy to spend my day with these bright minds and loving souls. I pray that they all see the light and reach their full potential which is infinite. Peace and blessings to all our family, those we know and those we have yet to meet. Let’s continue to strive for greatness and live out our dreams!

High school

Today was a special day, as my students would say, today was a great day!! I was able to teach high school for the first time today and it was dynamic. We had a mixture of poetry expressions, Life history, cultural history, healthy thinking habits, and with my last class, the 12th grade freestyle cypher! We even had a mixture of philosophical insight during the advisory period where we listened out loud to The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale. We had a good time connecting and growing and enhancing the attitude and mindset of each of the students. By the looks in their eyes, I can see that the students were engaged and internalizing the information being shared. I wrote three poems along With recited my favorite poem, IF by Rudyard Kipling. The students enjoyed the lesson and mentioned they enjoyed having me as a substitute teacher. It makes me feel good to pour a little of myself into the lives of these students because not so long ago I was in their position. Peace and blessings to all and I look forward to sharing more as we go forward in this journey.

Exciting News

Just like I am playing football against Notre Dame and the quarterback throws the ball to my side!! Interception time baby!! only this time, it is for the real world and I am not intercepting a pass, but I am launching my book, EFTY “The Power Of Believing” I am so excited and it feels like I am back in that November game at Stanford Stadium when I caught the two interceptions to help my team win the big game against the fighting Irish. For December, during the holiday time, I would like all my followers to read my work and see the hard work that I put into writing the book. For the entire month of December, I will sell the book for $1 to give everyone  a quick read for the holidays into the world of Wayne/WanY’e! The E- book is available on Kindle, it might take 48 hours to process in all the states but the work has been published. When you get a chance to check it out, contact me and let me know what you think. EFTY “The Power of Believing”

Reading

Are you actively reading?? My two most read books this month have been the Holy Bible and Sparks of Genius, the 13 thinking tools of the worlds most creative thinkers. It has really had a big impact on my life and allowed me to view the world with a better perspective than I had viewed it before. I would encourage each of you to take some time and read those two great reads! It will bring a light to your life that will give you a burst of energy for the good. Spend your time wisely and invest into yourself. Build your intelligence and thought process so you can achieve the things you set out to accomplish. Better yourself by the things you feed yourself. Not all food is meant to go through you mouth and into your stomach, some food comes as words and videos that enrich your brain and the way you live your day to day life. Let’s grow and enrich ourselves together. Iron sharpens iron!!

Be blessed and live life with no stress!!

peace and Blessings!!
