The Day I did my first attempt for a meet-up for my Tina's Positive Community Project planning to use the funds (I was Greatly Thankful for. Thanks Yawl) that I generated by singing outside of 'Bashas,' it was on a Tuesday. No one came. However, I DO NOTE that I did a very weak job of finally establishing a facility Monday Morning and having only till 3pm to get the word out for my need of volunteers to help me decorate the Christmas Reefs that I had planned to use on the Chinle Bridge. I nervously and attentively got this facility ready for incoming fellow community members with a fire in the stove for warmth, supplies, and my set-up for positive-vibes with my laptop hooked to hotspot and speakers. As the start-time rolled around, I was already admitting to myself the failure of my progression and aggression towards inspiring and informing my demographic aiders and was pondering 'the full give-up' and just dashing out the fire and going home. However, if you know me, you know I'm an athlete raised by athletes', and as athletes we build up 'follow-throughs' so I stayed saying to myself, "Hellz-Bellz Tina! Just stay and do what you had planned to do. These 24 Reefs can't decorate themselves." Now, as I did this, I turned on my laptop and pushed this Maya Angelou 'Suggested' video, and was re-awaken with this CONFIRMATION of my purpose to my P.C.P. efforts. This is what lead me to quote I had placed on the bridge as well. Enjoy.
P.S. - The entire thing is worth listening too, however the striking part Im trying to share with you starts at min 15. However, THE MAIN MINUTE THAT ENCOURAGES WHAT I'M DOING IS IN MIN. 17. AND IT TALKS ABOUT ROMANCE. Cause it is TRUE! WE ALL COULD BENEIFIT FROM A LITTLE ROMANCE. I think and feel like she is an elite soul whom Im fortunate to be tapped into. Like a Grandma or Older sibling.
MY DRIVE FOR CHANGE
I kind of hate to say this, BUT I come from a hometown where there is nothing to do in activities, except for doing drugs and alcohol. (There are no Arcade places, Movie Theaters, Putt-Putt GOLF, Dance Clubs, Activity Parks, Bowling Alleys, etc..) Just Bootleggers (people who sell alcohol/drugs illegally), general schooling, and home life (which are quite disturbed) are all we live in. Then, when it comes to obtaining a job here people hold-on tightly to their positions of average roles or will then hand their positions down to self chosen unknown applicants, so jobs aren't spread opportunistically.
With this civil Founded act, this production will provide an opportunity for members 21 & over without employment who also feel lacking/intimidated in finding work to volunteer their time and efforts towards a positive change in their average day-to-day activities to produce a positive outcome into their beloved community, while actually earning pay for the day without the stress of applying for a job.
(Because, I personally have been a teacher, but didn't like it much and have been stuck in a low vibrational life for almost 10 years and no job, while remaining my helpful self with hopeless and worthless outcomes)
S0, at the end of each "Project Day," I hope to project a positive and appreciative environment into these hopeless participators' moods' in order to enlighten them to their SELF-WORTH, which I feel and hope will lead each jobless participator towards their "LIFE PURPOSE." I imagine that through eventually seeing and feeling the impact that their positive efforts produced in enriching their environment will then 'shine a light' upon their progression.
My Beginning Examples of Intent
At/On an advertised weekday of work, members who are 21 & over who are interested in the positive impact or pay of the day will convene at a specified location to be briefed, discuss, collaborate, and/or labor 2-8 hours (with 1 hour halftime break) with fellow community members ensuring a positively charged environment encouraging acceptance and growth well lean of each other intending to produce actions like:
Picking-Up Trash and Debris
Re-painting and Highlighting the "C" initial of town CHINLE upon the mesa entrance.
Decorating the Township Area with Seasonal Holiday Decorations and/or Creations
->Leading into things like ANNUAL: Town Christmas Tree Lighting & A Christmas Ball.
Re-painting Eyesore structure and Graffiti walls with inspiring images and/or insights.
As an over 21 & unemployed myself, so I have no accumulated means to provide this program with the currency needed to pay my participants, nor provide the materials needed to carry-out these brainstormed positive acts. However, after contemplating how these funds can be provided I concluded that the most helpful option could be to generate these funds from the community members themselves, which in turn shows appreciative tangible proof for my volunteers. However, I didn't come remain seeing how this could help ONLY MY COMMUNITY, BUT HOMETOWNS EVERYWHERE. So with the God Sent individuals (like yourself) and their kindness of their donations after noticing my attempts to help and the unemployed youth within hometowns everywhere I pray to expand this formula everywhere throughout humanity. These donations will start to amplify my credibility of 'promised payment' in this production to my fellow comrades engaged in the positive acts during all and each event producing day of 'day-to-day' work with a satisfying amount of pay on each day. Your contribution will also provide the currency needed to purchase any/all materials required to carryout new coming positive projects discussed and shared by community members with positive outlooks for the environmental future. Or to use the words of Maya Angelou, "The Romance in a Community." Now I hope you can see how this true is a "LIFE-PURPOSE" kind of thing that has revealed itself to me after realizing my self-worth through my hardships and eventual enlightenment using my greatest good.
Now to be completely honest, I will be extracting 15% from the donated funds so I can declare myself as true entrepreneur for this idea of helping my community members, which is an employment that mirrors my soul's Cheerleader Spirit and passion of spreading POSITIVITY, and projecting my intentions of leading with my loving heart of understanding in hopes of impacting the WORLD in the loving way it may need.
