[May 20, 2015] EL CERRITO. Today, I wanted to take the time to write down my thoughts about a couple of revelations that I had. Most people do not know that I listen to Our Daily Bread each morning before I start my day. The message was about discipleship, congregations following pastors and leaders of the church versus the person who those leaders follow, Jesus Christ. I thought about the rituals that I do on a daily basis, why I do them, and who should get the glory. I couldn’t help but wonder if people attribute the actions that I choose to me as a human being or do they properly attribute them to our Lord and Savior. If there is ambiguity, I wanted to make this point abundantly clear.
I wake up each morning with the hope of improving the lives of others. Although it may seem complicated, I share my runs and work outs via social media not because I want to brag about what I am doing, but to motivate and inspire others to go out and do the same. I cannot tell you how many inbox messages I get from people stating that my check-ins, my hikes, or running has made the difference in them getting physically fit and/or taking their health more seriously. Sometimes, I just want to rest, sleep, and relax. Similarly, I share motivational quotes, tips on relationships, and humor to uplift their souls. Could people think that this is about me building my brand? What am I doing to lead people to Christ?
Checking in at church on Sundays is not enough. Thus, although I enjoy what I do each day, I do not do it for my own personal gain. I do it because it is what I am called to do. I am in the process of engineering a new generation built on the foundation of love, leadership, activism, and altruism. The Social Engineering Project is coming soon and hope that you all are ready for a much needed revolution of rebuilding our communities so that they are stronger than ever. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a slice of heaven or paradise on Earth while we are still here? I hope that you will join me in this plight.

[May 1, 2014] SAN FRANCISCO. I had the pleasure of meeting Cory Booker again during his visit to San Francisco last week. Many people know him as the former Newark, New Jersey Mayor, or current U.S. Senator of New Jersey. I know him has a social politician!
Whereas, I make politicians look good online and in some cases manage their campaigns, Cory Booker is the actual candidate who also runs about 90% of his social media. I was floored when I asked him how he juggles it all? He said (paraphrasing that is) that basically before or after appointments, he logs into his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts to see what is going on and either responds or sends out new material. Then, he also schedules more thought provoking or meaningful communications when he knows that he will be unavailable.
I am glad that Cory took the liberty to ReTweet my Tweet to his 1.46 million followers on Twitter and all and all, he is a really great guy.
