The virtual water cooler is on fire since the Season 24 finale where a historic win by Taylor Hale happened. Why has there been so much commentary on her win? Well, she is the first non celebrity black woman to win the largest prize ($750K) from BIG Brother. She was coined initially as a mean girl and outcast, but through the course of her journey she navigated through a phenomenal social game to become the victor not a victim. She defied stereotypes. She exuded grace, dignity, and resilience – courage under fire! She also became the America’s Favorite Player (Houseguest) winner that awarded her another $50K and a cruise. So, this portrait of an African America woman that captured the hearts and attention of many brought a new perspective and loads of conversations. Different topics ranging from race, inequity, bullying, bias, misogyny, and perceptions were addressed through the storylines presented in this season. Additionally, the historic previous season 23 laid the groundwork for more people of color to start being viewed by a different lens. And as Lizzo would sing it is about DARN (PG Version) Time!
So, below I shared some of my thoughts in an audio message and I included the visuals; as well as, some research that helped me develop this conversation starter. I also will bring this topic to a group of persons who are working to progress the actions of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion). I look forward to reviewing your comments and welcome them so let’s Chat it UP and get our N.O.W. Conversations beginning!
Some final thoughts I like to share are words of encouragement. I think it is important because it is a message (video) specifically speaking to the value of a woman! And really anyone and however you classify yourself need to be reminded that you are beautiful, valuable, and worthy. It doesn’t matter how you look or how much money you have or if you were voted most popular. You may be one who lives in obscurity or the shadows and feel like you are never noticed. You may be living loudly and always in front and center. It doesn’t matter your status or position because EVERYONE is worth love and EVERYONE is worth redemption! So, I just wanted to share some positive vibes and remind you, me, and “them” to acknowledge your personal uniqueness right here and now! There is absolutely no one else like you and I am so glad about that! Your existence contributes beauty and legacy. So, remember if you need to make pivot to regroup, reshape, and reverse any behaviors, mindsets, and actions…the time is N.O.W.
Below are some excepts of a previous message post:
Let us all emulate a positive person who seeks peace, love, joy, and civility one with another. It is often hard to feel recognized for the greatness and marvelous creation that you are, but this video helps reminds us (Just like Abigail reminded David who he was and whose he belonged to), let the words from this video help soothe any doubts in your heart of your worth, value, and utter importance in the world today. Love you all!
Words of encouragement for our lives:

Well, let me offer you this information below:John 14:6-7 The Message Version
6-7 Jesus said, “I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him. You’ve even seen him!”
John 14:6-7 The Voice Version
Jesus: 6 I am the path, the truth, and the energy of life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 If you know Me, you know the Father. Rest assured now; you know Him and have seen Him.
If you don’t know about Christ or why I subscribe to faith in Christ as my Lord and Savior then I will extend the offer for you to get to know Him for yourself. It is your choice. You will answer one way or the other for the choice you make here on earth – as we all will. So, the following information provides just a few suggestions, scriptures, and a prayer to help you move into a closer realm of understanding of what Christ is all about and can be about for you.

Update a friend shared this message today 10.2.2022 and it moved me! TRIGGERS and this is so .appropriate regarding the current post. The examples demonstrated through what we .viewed in this past season of Big Brother were shown by how “reactions” matter. Taylor Hale reacted with grace, patience, hurt, and all kinds of emotions – yet the witness was a person who persevered through it all to NOT be defeated by the angry voices. VICTRORY occurred because she did not dwell and indulge in a manner that her resultant actions destroyed her witness. She moved through the “moments” that hurt and provoked to get to the position of win (Where I Need) meaning the vision is WIN – “Where I Need” to be when this journey is over. She saw herself as a witness to the world that needs to be one of a winner who works through the angers, hurts, emotional traumas, etc. to be a light in the midst of darkness.
Will I WIN (Where I NEED) to be where I get to the WIN? Or will I lose focus of my vision to WIN (Obtain my BEST Life Ever here on Earth as it is in Heaven) and DIE (Destroyed IN Emotions)? Scripture to meditate upon is found in Habakkuk 2:2-3 The Message Version:
Habakkuk 2 The Message
2-3 And then God answered: “Write this.To achieve a WIN (Where I Need) to be; I need to focus on the vision before me and not succumb to the emotional onslaught of distractions that try to capture my attention and knock me off the path towards victory!
Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time.
