Life is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, laughter and disappointment, love and heartbreak and it is so worth living. So LIVE!♥️ ~ Shaun

BTW – I will be 50 in five months!! Y’all, life is so wonderful and God is sooo good! Smiling


Remember the Good Times

Much too often we remember hurts and disappointments before we remember the good. Today, I encourage you to focus on the good times. The moments that made you smile and feel loved. Have a wonderful day.♥️ ~ Shaun



Never stop believing.♥️~ Shaun

A few years ago, I shared a tweet Matthew A. Cherry, producer and director, had shared from years earlier. His original tweet read, “I’m gonna be nominated for an Oscar one day. Already claiming it.” He tweeted this on June 1, 2012. Well, in February 2020, he actually won an Oscar for his animated short film, Hair Love. Fun fact… I backed his Kickstarter for the film. So you already know I was super excited when the film won!

Anyhoo.. just like Matthew and so many others have done – manifest what you desire; believe it will happen; then, work towards getting it. It may take a while, even decades before it comes to fruition; however, you best believe, if it’s meant to be, IT WILL HAPPEN or something greater will. That’s how my God works. Smiling

Enjoy your week!


Hello Sunday

When you are given a gift, use it.

Shaun Bradford, Journal Entry– January 8, 2021

As I look back over my life, I have received so many gifts, tangible and intangible. Sadly, I have only used about about 75-80 percent of them properly. With that said, I may not have used them properly at the time I received them – because honestly, I did not know they were gifts – but once I recognized they were gifts, I used them.

As I move into this next year and next decade, I pray that I am more attentive to what I am given. I pray that I am open to receive and properly utilize what I’m given, as well as use them in a timely manner. Moving forward, I cannot and will not allow fear to stop me from embracing what is already mine.

Question – Are you properly utilizing the gifts you have been given, tangible and/or intangible? If not, what’s stopping you?

Thanks for reading! Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful week.




For most, trust does not happen over night. It takes time to build. Once in place, handle it with care because once it’s broken it can take a lifetime to repair.♥️ ~ Shaun

Sooo… short story. Right as I was posting this to my Facebook page, I started receiving notifications that someone was sharing my posts. I was like cool! Until I looked at who had shared them. How about someone stole my profile picture and banner and began sharing my posts. Talk about WILD!! Why do people do these things? Why pretend to be someone you’re not. At least they used a different name, but my same picture!! Disgusting and disturbing.

Trust… can’t trust nobody!! Shaking my head, laughing.

Y’all have a great day!


Wednesday Writings

Happy Wednesday! Today, I am celebrating wins. Not the big wins that everyone sees, but the small, teeny-tiny mental wins. You know, the ones that are small but have the greatest impact on our psyche. Yes, those are the wins I am referring to. And if you didn’t know, they are also the wins we need to move forward in this game called Life. Because y’all, life is definitely a game. Listen, if we are not careful, we will find ourselves stuck, repeating the same level for years. It’s a game.

So, even though my wins are small, I am celebrating them like I hit the jackpot because baby, I just entered another level. Yes, I have entered another level of life, which means another level of challenges.


This time I am entering prepared because I KNOW it’s a game.


I finally realize it’s a game that I cannot win without God’s presence, guidance or grace. Yes, the reason I was stuck on the same level for so long was because I tried to win on my own. HA! Silly me! Well, God is leading and I am listening. Okay.. so I would be lying if I said moving forward I will always listen —because some of the things He instructs me to do I just don’t want to do (yes, I can be stubborn – Repeat level–Lol!) —however, it’s my goal to do so. Looking forward to more wins and less repeats.

Yes, God is good and He loves me.♥️ Celebrating

Be Blessed
