I wrote a book called: Life is a Song in the Key of Love or Growing Up with the Embarrassment of Prejudice. I note that bias, prejudice and stereotype may be ‘handed-down’ through generations; without being questioned. The bias, stereotype, or prejudice statements or actions may be repeated over and over; but not FELT. I suggest doing a self-review of how YOU feel or THINK based on your own life experiences, and not based on something held onto by generations past.
I like using right brain, creative methods to get serious points across. In my book, I make reference to sheet music.
Now, I’d like to suggest another method! WHAT Fairy Tales, Fables or Labels are you receiving or giving out, that you may want to RE-VIEW? rePHresh your thinking, reLOOK, reVIEW, step back and SEE aNEW! WHO are YOU? How do YOU feel?
Get rid of the False Fairy Tales, Fables and Labels, OH MY! Why? Because Fairy Tales and Fables are written to TEACH LIFE LESSONS. Are the ones you are holding onto, or creating, a TRUTH for YOU; or were they handed to you by a peer, family member, etc. who had a life experience that doesn’t resonate with you?
I give a talk called: PEER POSITIVE! I talk about letting go of the PEER PRESSURE and PEER FEAR and becoming PEER POSITIVE! Peers may hold one another back due to personal life experiences that caused them to shrink back or give up a goal. Their own fear translates into an intention to protect you from having their same, fearful or uncomfortable life experience. But! It doesn’t have to be yours.
So, what are your FAIR TALES, FABLES AND LABELS? OH MY! Make a list, check it twice, and see if the Action/Reactions in your life are FALSE Fables or Tales that need to be ‘TAIL WAGGED’ and swiped away from your everyday interactions. Create peace within you, and work towards a world of peace.
… and they lived happily ever after!

When I was getting certified to become a laughter wellness leader; I had some wonderful classmates! One gentleman was retired; and just doing it for the FUN of it! He had found a Buddy in the class to hang out with, at the hotel.
He came to the 2nd day of training and told me: ‘Marvin’ had a problem with his room and we went to the desk for him to get it taken care of. The desk staff weren’t going to help him. So his good buddy ‘Jim’ uses HIS ASSERTIVE, FROM THE DIAPHRAGM voice and states:
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!?
‘Jim’ is laughing as he tells me, THEY FIXED MARVIN’S PROBLEM! LOL!
‘Jim’ said, I ACTUALLY had NOTHING to say after the phrase: DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!?
I was just going to say: uh, Jim Smith *grin (I think ‘Jim’ discovered a new personal power within himself, at that moment!)
He had said it with SUCH AUTHORITY – the hotel staff MUST have felt he was SOMEONE IMPORTANT – or – someone associated with the hotel! LOL!
So, I am asking you, today (2/2/2011 a day filled with 2s), WHO ARE YOU?
What is YOUR VALUE? WHO, WHO, WHO ARE YOU? Do you really wanna know? (to quote THE WHO).
I know I have FOUND parts of myself, I’m continuing to look as I grow, learn and discover –
WHO I AM!
