My Journey Back on Stage

I finally got a haircut last Wednesday. Yes, I had my funny hair fashion for seventy two hours. I guess it was for a reason as when I  got to the barbershop, guess who was there getting his haircut? Toronto Raptors' (and Toronto native) Jamaal Magloire. This guy is HUGE. At first I wanted to go to him and ask for an autograph, a picture or something, but I remembered my funny haircut and I decided to stay away from him. He seems to be a nice guy though. Maybe he would have said yes to my request. I guess I will see him around again soon.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine invited me to speak to a group of professional immigrants from Haiti. It was a couple of minutes away from home, so I said yes. It was really fun. I made very good contacts there, one of them hooked me up to a Speakers Bureau, and long story short, I am part of their speakers now. The first engagement was last week when I spoke to an amazing group of students about the Black History Month.

My Journey to a Haircut.

Hello there.
It's been a while since I posted my blog on Monday. It feels really good. I have to admit that the inspiration is not there all the time. Sometimes I have to wait until I have an
idea of what I am going to write about.

This week, the idea came to me just yesterday when I was having my haircut.

You see, it has been almost seven years that I cut my hair myself. Every two weeks, all I have to do is getting my machine, and ten minutes later I am better looking (at least that is what the survey says lol).

So, here I was yesterday evening, in front of my mirror, ready to do a job that I have been doing for almost a decade now. Can you guess what happened? Two minutes into mjob, the machine died. Are you kidding me!! There was nothing I could do. My hair looked exactly like that bush we always see on TV while watching people on Safari in Kenya. The only thing missing was those wild animals lol.

I went in the living room to show my wife my new haircut and she exploded with l…

My Journey to an Achieved Goal

Here am again after a week off. I know that you really missed me. Do you want to know how I know? Because I received a text from my friend Jeff in Kigali asking me why I did not post my blog last week. He asked me what many of you wanted to know.

The truth is that I had my blog ready but my phone could not allow me to post it. Now I am using my wife's phone. My computer h as been down for a while, I think that I will have to replace it.

So, Jeff, by the time you wake up, the blog will be waiting for you.

This week, my friend Emmanuel Lopez, a.k.a Motivatorman, made my life so easy. He shared in his blog what I wanted to write about this week.

How about I let you see it by yourself?

Here it is. Hope you will enjoy it.
