CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY THROUGH POETRY


President’s note Love yourself through it all: “Fail often so you can succeed sooner” Big Media USA - More Than a Podcast Company

T

he sting of failure sooner or later touches everyone regardless of thier background, financial status, age or gender. The fear of failure is a common attitude that almost everyone brings to life and all its uncertainty as the years unfold. No one is immune to the consequences of plans gone wrong, dreams left behind, goals unfulfilled, hopes dashed or desires left unfulfilled. Well Valentine tell me, does this all sound negative? Most people see failure as a negative life experience to avoid but in this Love edition of our Informed People Magazine we have chosen to ask you to see failure in a different light. Some of you may find this difficult while other’s totally impossible, but we hope that you will at least give us a chance to lay out our rationales, experiences and approaches to help you have a paradigm shift so that you can love yourself and embrace the growth that comes with failure, the opportunities that it presents and the ability to take charge of your life and its destiny regardless of what crosses your path whether a career, relationship, financial or personal situation that you beforehand would have avoided, felt helpless or given up. We have all had our share of failures and their corresponding fallout, consequences and often even public scorn but in the end our failures more than our successes have molded us into what we have become and we freely admit that without them we would have never had the ability or right to love ourselves and others without judgments. All we ask is that you bring an open mind to the ideas, concepts and principles we discuss in the included articles and linked Big Media USA podcasts. We hope you enjoy your trip to LOVE, success, happiness, inner peace and wealth as you overcome your unique challenges and yes failures. When we truly Love, What is failure? Well, let’s take a brief look at some of our beloved biggest successes and yes, biggest failures in a variety of areas. Please keep in mind, that in each category listed here there were thousands of people who were judged to have failed and then went on to achieve great success. Here are just a few of the most well known. Sports – Babe Ruth Politics – Abe Lincoln Religion – Billy Graham Technology – Bill Gates Business – Walt Disney Medicine – Jonas Salk Art – Picasso Literature – Earnest Hemmingway Retail – RH Macy

Science – Thomas Edison Entertainment – Lucile Ball Media - Oprah Music – The Beatles Acting – Harrison Ford Philosophy - Plato Hospitality – Bill Marriott Authors – Mark Twain

Before you love and move on, why not think for a few minutes about someone you know personally who has failed and gone on to reach the mountaintop. Remember, that everything that exists today exists because someone failed and kept on trying again and again until they achieved success. Don’t think for one minute that success comes easily and quickly to anyone. If it does beware, it just might be fleeting and not all that rewarding. Success like anything else in life is not a comparison to what others have achieved or not achieved but what you could achieve. Do not be lulled into the trap of thinking that anything worthwhile in life will come quickly or without some pain, disappointment or adversity. I know no one who has Loved and achieved success, wealth, fame or influence who didn’t experience many failures along the way some significant or some minor, but in the end it isn’t the size or degree of any failure that matters but what your reaction and response is to them. In fact the single common denominator in all successful people is the ability to “fail often so they could succeed sooner.”

You Deserve This

C. Regi Rogers

Advice from the #1 Relationship Coach By C. Regi Rogers Do you feel you are not worthy to have the partner or mate you desire? Do you feel as if you are too picky, and you will never find him/her? Have you ever felt as if you did not deserve to have what you want in your mind? There are many who have a great feeling of undeservedness. Where does this feeling come from? Where does this feeling begin? It is not until you get all these thoughts out of your mind that the magic and manifestation can happen. I am here to tell you that you deserve to meet the mate of your dreams. Yes, YOU! In life you get sincerely what you think, feel, and believe you deserve. If you feel as if you deserve that new car, you get it. If way down in your gut, it is your conviction that you are supposed to have it, nothing can keep you from getting it. Allow me to introduce you to REGI’S RELATIONSHIP RECIPE. This philosophy will enhance and empower your feelings of deservedness. 1. Recognition (Visual)---Identification of someone or something or a person from previous encounters. Acknowledgment of something in existence. This brings validity. The perception of something existing or true. Recognize that you deserve this. 2. Realization (Mental)---An act of becoming fully aware of something as a fact. The fulfillment or achievement of something desired or anticipated. This is the state of understanding or becoming aware of something. Realize that you deserve this. 3. Resilience (Emotional)---The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. This is the ability to spring back into shape, your elasticity. This gives you the capability to recover after deformation caused especially by compressive stress. With resilience you possess the ability to recover from or adjust easily to change. Because of your resilience, you deserve this. 4. Respect (Social)---A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. Respect is a way of treating or thinking about something or someone. This word is also called esteem; it is a positive feeling or action shown towards someone. When you have respect for yourself, you know you deserve everything that comes to you. 5. Readiness (Physical)---The state of being fully prepared for something. The process of readiness involves

recognizing the need to change. The condition of being ready. You are ready for action. Be ready for what you deserve. I want to make a bold statement. “What you feel often determines what you think you deserve.” Isn’t it time to change the narrative that you keep saying to yourself? You cannot achieve in life more than what you believe in your mind and feel in your heart that you deserve. Within you, there is a spiritual subjective intuition that knows instinctively how to position yourself to get what you deserve from the creator. We tend to ignore it. We put our feelings in a cup and get caught up in a rut. You must feel to the creator (the infinite source within you) as if you are the one who is entitled to receive what the universe has for you from what you have created in your good thoughts. Do you want to be loved with an honest tongue and feel you deserve it? Do you want to be loved by someone with a devoted heart? Then you must feel you deserve it. Do you want to be loved by someone with exclusive eyes only for you? Then feel you deserve it. You deserve the mate that you say and believe you deserve. Do you really feel you deserve the mate that you feel you deserve? The Infinite Source is asking you this. Do you feel you deserve what you feel you deserve? I want you to bring yourself to that point that you feel as if you are entitled to have the mate of your dreams manifested and tailor-made just for you. “I want you to know that your spiritual subjective intuitions have and continue to give you instructions and position or loving yourself or whatever is someone else’s belief or opinion that you have accepted as truth” (Louise Hay). You must learn how to get way down there in your gut and start learning how to trust your intuition. Master how you feel on a deeper level. Ask yourself---what do you think, what do you feel, and what do you believe you deserve? It is time for you to give credence, the mental acceptance to what is true and real. Trust that you deserve the mate you want to attract.

Unexpected Bliss A life without limits...

L

ove Birds flying high, Winston Ben Clements was predicted to live a life of isolation and pain due to a rare bone disorder known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). Despite this, he has courageously and heroically taken a stand for a quality of life that knows no excuses and no limits. Lovely Mayfair shared this about her love, “I met Winston at a personal development event in London in July 2018, we were both on a path of pursuing our respective purposes and building our businesses. We became friends soon after this and it was genuinely refreshing to speak to someone who was on a similar path, even at this stage his personality and way of being inspired me. As our friendship developed, Winston proposed the idea of starting a mastermind group to support fellow entrepreneurs. This venture drew us even closer, and for the first time

I began to picture us being together. Shortly after we ran our first mastermind live event, Winston made his intentions known to me - that he saw a future for us too, and this moment marked the beginning of our romantic relationship. Winston is one of those guys - to know Winston up close is to love him, but it was the evening after we ran our first mastermind event that I realised I was ‘in love’ with him. We spent the whole evening talking, sharing parts of our history that we’d never shared with anyone before. Shortly after this we had a phone conversation that lasted 16 hours (yep). During this chat Winston told me he was in love with me, I didn’t want to say it at time but I felt the same. We discussed getting married in the coming months, and in true Winston fashion - he eventually made it happen.

Winston is my best friend and biggest encourager. It was ultimately for a joint mission to empower people to unlock their God given potential that I believe God joined us together but it’s our connection that makes the journey so exciting. I’m so blessed to be able to do life with someone as kind and as special as Winston.”

CLICK TO HEAR WATCH WINSTON PROPOSE TO MAYFAIR

Wonderful Winston honestly described his condition. “My infliction, brittle bones disorder is a rare condition that affects about 1 in 20000 people, many of whom do not make it beyond their childhood years. This is because the condition causes bones to be extremely fragile and so even the impact of a fall could potentially be fatal. In my case I have suffered over 200 fractures, and spent a significant part of my life undergoing medical procedures including surgery and rehab to treat my injuries. I was fortunate to win the “family lottery.” I’ve always felt that my family were perfectly equipped to handle the unique challenges of a child with OI. Even from a young age they provided me a strong foundation of physical and emotional support. They also always pushed me and encouraged me to think bigger, and not just settle for a limited lifestyle. I’ve also been blessed with many great friends and mentors along the way, who believed in me, and challenged me to shoot for the stars even when the odds were stacked against me. As a Christian, my faith in God keeps me grounded and motivated and I now believe that my story was given to me as a blessing and not a burden. This motivates me to keep going because I know I have an opportunity and a responsibility to use my situation to create positive change for the next generation.

The biggest challenge with my proposal to my love Mayfair was simply keeping it a secret! The plan was for Mayfair and her family to visit my family for an introductory lunch at my parent’s home. At some point, my sister and cousin provided a distraction by taking Mayfair out of the house - I believe they went to the local store. While they were out, we decorated the space and made it look super romantic ready for me to surprise her as soon as they returned to the

house. Joy, tears, relief, wonder, delight and the presence of God are some of the things I believe we all experienced when I asked Mayfair to marry me. One of the biggest things for me was to honor not just Mayfair, but her family and friends also for raising this incredible human being who had become the love of my life. On our wedding day, I was completely blown 8 Informed People Magazine


away! It had been such a whirlwind journey for us, from the time we got together, through meeting each other’s families, and then getting married in the middle of a global pandemic – August 23/2020. It’s safe to say that when I saw my bride coming down the aisle, the emotion hit me all at once! I guess the most overpowering emotion of them all was gratitude - to be able to have this special day, at a time like this and surrounded by all our loved ones. Click here to view the video! Above being my best friend and the love of my life, Mayfair is my “purpose partner”. We believe that God placed us in each other’s lives as destiny helpers for one another. We believe that His purpose is to use our union to change the world for the better. My hope is that we can inspire many people from all types of backgrounds to live a life of freedom, empathy and hope.”

My Sister and I,

WO SOULS OUCHING By LuAn Mitchell

It was an award recipients zoom call, a very prestigious international event, filled with dignitaries and honored guests. https://www.instagram.com/ sheinspiresmeawards/?hl=en I was excited to be invited as an award recipient of the very prestigious SIMA “She inspires me” award. https://www.instagram.com/p/CBs1eKeJkNN/ Many members spoke, and they were impressive. Then just before I was to speak a woman was introduced, my heart skipped a beat as I learned of her excellence. She had so many accolades that I lost count. “This woman must be very outspoken and have much to share,” I thought as I waited with baited breath. Then a soft voice, like that of an angel spoke of Love and kindness, of sharing and believing of faith and courage and of global healing. My tears started to flow it was out of my control. So soft, and so melodic was her voice as this highly accomplished woman spoke, it was as if this goddess was set to music as she gave life to light and love throughout the assembly. “Where have you been my sister,” I thought as chills ran up my spine. This moment in history was extremely special it was as if “two souls were touching,” Dr. Pauline Long’s soul and mine. Dr. Pauline Long is the most celebrated black woman in the United Kingdom / Europe with over 270 awards for her philanthropic work globally. 10 Informed People Magazine

She was also a 2020 SIMA award recipient and this magnificent woman was my soul sister, I was forever grateful we were brought together this blessed day in this gift of life.

Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky.

On the floors of the gigs You turned your back on, The balled-up fists of notes Flung, angry from a keyboard.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his own But a caged bird stands on 12 Informed People Magazine

What is her

Secret By Angelika Christie

It’s such a pleasure to write about a true to life Wonder Woman known as “Cheryl Womack!” This intriguing lady shared wisdom with me in a Big Media USA, Inc. interview. Ms. Womack’s inspiring, thoughtprovoking, and yes, unusual relationship with her husbands’ and family is beyond fabulous. Her infectious energy is radiant and powerful. Flowing in perfect alignment with her immense accomplishments as a successful businesswoman, whose brilliant creations were valued at over 100 million dollars. So, there was a little flutter felt in my inner workings as an interviewer. I thought I might be a bit intimidated in the presence of this achiever. But, I was wrong. When we got together, I felt at ease and I loved her from the very start for many reasons. Behind her interesting veil, one that could be seen by some as being of a perceived masculine expression; there is a truly warm, sensitive, and very feminine, loving and beautiful woman. I loved that lady and besides being such a role model and inspirational leader, I discovered that we also share a similar statistic in our relationships with men. Cheryl’s love relationships are fascinating and joyfully inspiring. I immediately got her permission to share some of her experiences and success stories with you here. 14 Informed People Magazine

Have you ever wondered why you are attracted to a partner and why you said “Yes” and why you may be disappointed now? When I heard Cheryl’s story with her first husband, I got a big surprise and an even bigger aha moment, It turned out that marriage was not what this should mate was in her life for. Yes, he was deeply loved, cared about and respected, but this was a drawing together as deeply felt as from a brother. He was a treasure you forever, knows you like no other, is your greatest confidant, and never leaves you. This is the relationship that Cheryl still enjoys with Wally, the man she married, her first but they divorced later. What is her secret? Before she married again, she was going to make sure that jealousy could not be present or become part of the new relationship. Cheryl’s platonic relationship with Wally was and would always be prominent in her and her new husband’s life, and that was that. Wally remarried and his wife and children are an intrinsic part of Cheryl and her husband Dean’s life, including the children from both families. A perfectly

“WELCOME HOME CHERYL”

Imagine 14 months behind bars. Separated from family, friends, your business and everything familiar to you. Leaving the environment of a privileged life to one without any privileges. How scary is that? Es-pecially when you have been rail roaded using trumped up accusations to build a case against you. It happens every single day in our criminal justice system. Cheryl is a remarkably successful businesswoman and knows how to make money and be prosperous. But these are often the targets of dis-crimination and injustice. In the past 40 years the number of female incarcerations has increased by 800%. Cheryl Womack came out of prison prepared to do something about it all. A beautiful mature woman has come along to support a muchneeded segment of our society that has been totally ignored. Women in prison are all too familiar with the changes that need to take place. For the next while Cheryl will be dedicating her time and energy to empower and support women who are on their way to jail, in jail already and those getting out. 16 Informed People Magazine

During our interviews I could feel the passion with which Cheryl has embraced her next assignment in life. Many women in prison left babies and children behind. Aging parents, partners families and friends who also have experienced a tremendous loss with having their Mom, daughter, sister

book written to support Mom’s and their kids to explain that the love is still there even though Mom had to go away for awhile to camp. A series of training materials and workshops are being developed to educate, empower, develop self-worth and to let the women know that there are people who care and that they matter. Cheryl was one of the lucky ones. She was already established in business, had a loving husband and sons who were there for her throughout her time. Not everyone is so fortunate. Families often abandon the member as a result of the separation. It is extremely difficult to hold a family together without communication and a woman is allowed only one phone call per day if she is lucky.

I asked Cheryl how we support Women of Worth wow efforts. What can we do? When we purchase a children’s book the organization donates a second book to a Mom in prison. You can order the book on the website www. womenofworthwow.org Once the structure is in place, we can donate money to help secure housing and basic

needs once ladies are released. Many of these women come out and have lost everything, they have no one to turn to and no where to go. Prison reform is required and man-datory. Yes, this is a hard road ahead. However, in the meantime we can work together with Cheryl and other women who have had similar experiences to make a difference.

In another article I will speak more about the danger of needing to be loved as a substitute for self -love. The burden you put on your partner is enormous and unfair. Loving yourself first is not selfish but self- caring and selfcompassionate. Develop those attributes for the joy and benefit of you and your partner. The German poet Rainer Maria Rilke said it so perfectly, and I paraphrase: “Love and Honor the Space Between You.” Love can only thrive when you set it free.

THE ART OF DELIGHTFUL RELATIONSHIPS IS ALSO THE PATH TO HAPPINESS Copyright Angelika Christie

Fact is that no matter how many friends of family members you have, you are alone.

Fact is that the only lasting relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself; which starts with your first breath and ends your last breath. Fact is that women have more natural skills to create delightful relationships, and more readily explore options Fact is that most women are harder on themselves than men are. Fact is that most women have not been allowed to love themselves first.

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

,

Don Green has a new book out and it’s focused on what he learned from his mentor, Napoleon Hill. Don Green, Chief Executive Officer of The Napoleon Hill Foundation, has authored a new book, available for preorder on Amazon and at other fine book retailers. The book, titled Napoleon Hill, My Mentor; Timeless Principles to Take Your Success to the Next Level, shares how Green applied many of Hill’s principles to build his own success. In the book, he shares his personal knowledge of Hill, including stories and insights that have never been published. He includes how the principles behind Think and Grow Rich, one of Hill’s most popular books, are still relevant today, and how the reader can put them to work for his or her self. The book also contains tools to uncover secrets to growth, creativity, power and

achievement, from inside the mind.

CEO—a position he served for nearly 20 years.

Green, the son of a coal miner, was born in Appalachia. At forty-one, he became the CEO of a bank on the verge of collapse. He turned the institution around and ran it at a profit for eighteen years until he retired at 60. Don was asked by the trustees of the Foundation to serve as the executive director.

His accomplishments have been matched by his diverse contributions to community and the commercial fraternity. His public offices have spanned a spectrum that included educational institutions, hospitals, charitable causes, community service organizations, and arbitration boards. He served as president of his county’s Chamber of Commerce and president of the Foundation Board of the University of Virginia’s College at Wise—a position in which he still holds. Green is also a board member of the UVA/Wise Board of Trustees. His memberships include the Hoge Masonic Lodge, the Kiwanis Club, and the Shriners movement.

Graduating with a BA (Accounting and Business) degree from East Tennessee State University, Green studied advanced phases of banking at the Stonier Graduate School of Banking at Rutgers. With banking as his youthful passion, he worked his way up from the bottom rung of the banking industry to bank president and

Green received the Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award in 1996; the Sam Walton Business Leader Award in 1998; the William P. Canto Memorial Education Award in 1999; the Volunteer of the Year Award (University of Virginia) in 2000 and the Helping Heroes Award in 2020 (Helping Heroes, USA.) He organized and was successful in getting the 3-hour credit course, Keys to Success, included in the UVA/Wise curriculum based on the success principles of Napoleon Hill. Green taught the course for several years, and it is still a very popular course with students. Under his leadership, many scholarships have been endowed as well as fully funding the Napoleon Hill professorship in the business department. The Napoleon Hill Foundation is a nonprofit educational institution dedicated to promoting Hill’s philosophy located on the campus of The University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Green with W.

Think and Grow Through Art and Music is written for anyone who aspires to be or become a professional in the field of art and music. The Author, Randey W. Faulkner’s extensive experience has demonstrated that a person who possesses the burning desire to become a professional in the field of art and music, and not only reads, yet also applied these principles, will multiply his/her greater advantage of becoming successful by ten times or more. Just as Napoleon Hill made millionaires out of scores of men and women in the past, as well as today, his principles when properly applied and followed by action, will work with any application. The author:

•Includes his Twenty plus years of face-to-face interviews with some of the greatest artists and musicians who have ever lived. He also includes email and telephone conversations from those too busy to sit down for a one on one. • Adds his countless hours of research delving into the past of those who have gone before, so he might add their input and suggestions. • Integrates Napoleon Hills’ lifetime of knowledge gained by over 500 interviews with some of Americas renowned leaders used to create his science of personal success and philosophy outlined in his classic Think and Grow Rich. • Teamed up with the Napoleon Hill Foundation in Wise, Virginia, who has carried on Napoleon’s work since his passing in 1970. Together, they have clearly written a modern day classic, a must read for any and all. Over 20 years of interviews and research, yielding inspiration, advice and motivation from musicians and 34 Informed People Magazine

The need is great as this population has grown 800% over the past four decades. By putting faces, names, and life stories out in front of these women, we bring these women back into focus. The general public needs to understand why they should want to know more.

W W W. WO M E N O F WO R T H WO W. O R G Women of Worth raises awareness by providing information, resources, and support for previous, current or past incarcerated women and their families. These women are part of an invisible society. We need to raise awareness that women are going to jail in larger numbers then ever and start a conversation about why this is happening and options.

60%

WOMEN IN PRISON ARE THERE FOR NONVIOLENT DRUG CRIMES.

THE NUMBER OF WOMEN IN PRISON INCREASED MORE THAN SIXFOLD BETWEEN 1980 AND 2010

67%

WOMEN IN PRISON ARE MOTHERS OF CHILDREN UNDER

54%

WOMEN IN FEDERAL PRISON HAVE SUFFERED PHYSICAL OR SEXUAL ABUSE IN THEIR LIFETIME

This organization will partner with others to provide detailed information on the needs for incarcerated women. They need to prepare before they go in, they need help while serving their time, they need help knowing how to navigate the various parts of the prison bureaucracy. In this experience you deal with several different groups within the system. We need to realize women are serving time and what kind of women are.

continued to chase the finish line. After almost a year, he had lost 40 pounds naturally, rekindled his desire to cycle as a sport and found cycling to be the ultimate stress relief for a busy executive with an active family. As an anniversary gift fifteen years ago, he surprised me with a trip to Bacara in Santa Barbara for the weekend. This lavish resort was not the only surprise as he also purchased a tandem bicycle, a way to share his rekindled love of cycling with me. I was timid to say the least but accepted the challenge and joined him on a lovely day in July. We rode towards the Ojai Valley, passing orchid farms, polo fields and ending the ride at the original Habit Restaurant for a mouthwatering burger and fries. That wasn’t all, he surprised me again with a couple’s massage and candlelight dinner on the patio – a wonderful finish to my introduction to cycling. 41


I was hooked as well, a bit slower to start, as I did have three children under my care, but began to ride bicycles as sport, not just recreation. I had always ridden bikes, learning at a young age around the neighborhood and loving to ride to the beach as a teenager to gain my independent freedom. But as a workout riding was a new challenge for me. At the time I could not even run around the block without stopping to gain my breath. Cycling showed me a new way to gain back my fitness in a fun and social manner.

My husband would take me out on the Saturday morning group rides, introducing me to local cyclists and showing me parts of our community I had never seen before. Driving around, you follow the shortest route to your destination, while with cycling you follow the best route. It may be the challenging climbs, the best road conditions or even the safest path. I saw parts of the San Fernando and Conejo Valley I did not know existed. Afterwards, I would jump in the car with our children to share the excitement and the new interesting places I had 42 Informed People Magazine

found. A few months later I was surprised with my own road bicycle and quickly increased my fitness by riding alongside my husband and new cycling friends. We used our love of cycling to explore new communities – all across the state and around the world. We have traveled for organized rides including bicycle wine tasting events, charity bike rides, as well as creating our own challenges including European cycling adventures. Our time together on the bicycle is our time, a special way to be together to clear our heads of business or family stress, to clear our bodies of the toxic world we live in and to better ourselves as a whole. The love of cycling not only rekindled the spark of fitness but rekindled our relationship as well. We celebrated our twenty-five-year anniversary this summer riding bicycles in the Central Coast of California, side by side and planning our next twenty-five years together.

Jennifer Johnson is the number one supporter and partner of Scott Johnson, CEO of Serious Cycling. Serious Cycling is a premier cycling brand located in Southern California. Founded in 2009, our mission is to grow the love of cycling. Our daily work in the local community has safely put thousands of riders on bikes and produced a race club competing at every level of the sport on the road, mountain, gravel, and velodrome.

Let’s talk about Love, Online Dating and You. We all want to find love! It’s something we yearn for, but in the process, we can make a lot of mistakes. I am going to touch on a few here and there is a whole lot more where this came from in my Best-Selling Book. There are a few basic Rules which start with how you check out a Profile. That goes for the profile of that Hot Hunk who looks like Shemar Moore. Unless you are just out for a one night stand, then pay attention to my words and understand this: You cannot change anyone except yourself and that is non-negotiable. There are Deal Breakers and you need to sort those out before you say Hey to anyone online. So, when you see that the Hot Hunk has a couple of kids and you don’t want kids, or he smokes, and you hate the smell or he does weed and you are not a weed kinda gal then the word is NEXT. No point in going any further as that is a recipe for disaster. That means NO contact at all. Just scroll on down to the next possibility. Use a screen name on your profile but do NOT use something sexy like “Sexy4U” or “Hot 4 U” or anything provocative, unless that is the light you want yourself reflected in. You can have a picture on your CLICK HERE TO VIEW profile, but DON’T GEORGENE SUMMERS ON post one of you halfnaked, or from High School or one of you photoshopped to make you 50 pounds lighter or 15 years

younger. You will be found out very quickly and that is not the way to start any relationship. Remember, in areas where a lie is easily discovered, don’t. Do not ever answer an email or reply to a profile that doesn’t have a picture included! It goes without saying do not ever have a person pick you up at home and do not leave a public place with someone you have just met, end of story. No exceptions until you know who that person really is! It is NEVER okay to meet at a public place for your first date and then get in their car and go somewhere else with this stranger. Do your homework. Get their business card or business details and call their place of work to confirm a date and to make sure that is who you are talking to. Anyone can have a business card that belongs to someone else. On a date, have your own method of transportation and this too is nonnegotiable. I met my Soulmate online, while living half-way around the world in Africa, so it can be done if you do it right. At the time I had been divorced three times and alone for 20 years after my last divorce. I was 60 when I moved alone to Africa and two years later met the man of my dreams…Online! So, don’t despair and for more on what to do and not do, head over to my website. Check out my Best Selling book Blind Spots The Ultimate Guide to Love in the Dark. It has an entire chapter devoted to Online Dating called the Mouse is in Your Court. https://www.aworld4women.com/ collections/books-4-u Check it out. www.aworld4women.com

ome say Love is Blind, there is no such thing as a Soulmate, you cannot find Love online and when you reach the age of 55, give or take, your chances of getting hit by lightning are better than they are of finding love. I am here as a Testament to the falsehood of all of those trite old sayings. because I am living proof that the opposite can be true, and in my case, is true.   So, fasten your seat belts and get ready for a True Story of Love and Lust and Soulmates meeting in a Third World country called South Africa. I was 60 years young, had been divorced three times, was single for 20 years after the third divorce, and one crazy morning I decided to move to Africa. Yes, the place with the wild animals and tribal people. I had been going on safaris alone with just my Masai Guide as company, no tours, since 1996 and I just needed to be closer to Nairobi so I could venture out more often into the bush.  

sideways and a beautiful blonde was in it with him. It didn’t really matter because this was just for a dinner companion. It was only later that I discovered the girl was his daughter. I sent him a text and we ended up making a plan to meet at a book store in Capetown.  One date turned into a second after I discovered that he was a business associate of a friend of mine. That turned into a third date.  Although he never kissed me, being a proper British gentleman, we both knew something was going on, we just didn’t know what. On our third date I invited him, and several other people to dinner, and after they left, we sat on the couch covered with my dogs talking.   Suddenly he kissed me and that went on sweetly for an hour and then he

I had planned on staying for a year. however, as they say, the best-laid plans often go awry and so mine went awry. I ended up buying a home the first 30 days of my adventure and decided that moving back to the states after just one year was not really a great idea, so I stayed a second year. It was towards the end of that second year when I found myself in need of a dinner companion to round out dinner parties. I decided to go on an Online Dating Site to find someone. I looked and looked some more before finding a profile, Butterfly Paul. He was goodlooking, although his picture was 49


left. He remained that proper Brit the entire time, however, I knew it would not stop there. I had already written several books on relationships and kissing the face-off leads to sex plain and simple. The following morning he emailed to thank me for dinner and went on and on, appreciative and grateful. He never mentioned our romantic moment. So I returned the email with the following: “Thank you for the compliments and I am not sleeping with you.” He apparently picked himself up off the floor and replied that was not his intention. He said he knew something was going on but wasn’t sure what, maybe it was love, and if I wasn’t afraid we could see where it went.  I was a bit shocked because I had already made some preliminary plans to return to the states, however, I had seen first-hand the qualities of this man and they were special. One that stood out to me was how he treated others. The person who brought up his car or waited on our table or the uneducated mother of my Xhosa housekeeper, my second mother, who lived with me. He treated everyone with respect, grace, and dignity and that was amazing. I made the decision to stay and see where this relationship would go. I could call him and say how about a movie and dinner and it didn’t mean a movie, dinner, and let me pin you against the wall. It was oldfashioned, to say the least, but we got to know each other and when we finally ended up in an intimate relationship, we loved each other for who we were as people. Old fashioned, but amazing.  On December 31, 2004, we married in Africa, in a Fairy Tale wedding in the garden of my home. It was the most incredible day of my life. Looking back, we were like a Royal Couple ascending the rock steps up into the garden.

How many people have had their heart broken at some point? I will not be surprised that nearly 90 percent of the whole world. In one way or another, someone’s heart has been torn to pieces. The pain of heartbreak is difficult to mend. Most of us are hurt, but they do not know how to get rid of that pain. One needs to understand how this pain was induced and look at it carefully to try and see if they can mend the heart break. This can be done by taking steps to heal. The first is to accept reality. Nothing can reverse the pain. Acceptance is therapy or you will die suffering. The choice is yours. Click to order your copy
