welcome!!

We at Awesome Thinkers United are on a mission to learn in a personal and fun way. This is a homeschooling blog but the goal is to connect to other people and learning from each other. From cooking recipes to quantum physics to musical interests to science fiction. We want to learn from a plethora of sources to expand the thinking mind towards a more positive future. Education shouldn’t stop when the kids are finished with homework or when they get home from school. It’s anything from teaching a lesson in math to cooking in the kitchen. It’s the practical lessons we may think is irrelevant now but may come in handy in the future. So please feel free to comment and contact us.

We look forward to growing with you all!!

Gravity sucks….sometimes

Ever felt weighed down? Heavy? Not light on your toes? Well then, GET MOVING!! LOL

Gravity is at play here and while it’s very useful for  keeping us grounded, it can also hurt us. Here’s what I mean.

Imagine waking up and feeling groggy and tired, just clutching onto the last remnants of sleep in the back our eyelids.  Gravity of sleep is still weighing down on you. Rub them eyes and splash some water on your face and praise G-d for restoring your soul to your body. Be thankful for breathing, for the blood pumping in your veins that sustained your life force while slumbering, heck, even for snoring!! Just be grateful!! Don’t let the gravity of sleep stop you from moving forward in your day. Wake up!! You are alive and I’m thankful for it, so should you.

When I speak of gravity, I’m not specifically talking of the kind that is keeping us from flying off the face of the Earth, though that would be quite a sight to behold. I’m speaking of the weight we carry around us. The emotional, mental and spiritual weight we hold that weigh down our hearts, minds and souls. Let it go. We can be our own worst enemies when it comes to this. I know this firsthand.

A few years ago, I lost custody of my daughter’s. The situation surrounding those circumstances are still baffling to me til this day.  I was depressed for years and had no comfort in the matter because of where I was emotionally and mentally at the time. I got little help from well meaning family and friends (I hold no ill will towards them though I thought differently at the time) and was mostly alone to deal with this. Needless to say, I had a breakdown in spirit and mind and was admitted to the hospital for severe depression. I thank G-d and my husband, children, and mother in law for being there for me through this most difficult time. Their unconditional love and passion to make sure I didn’t go completely off the deep end is a testament to the existence of a Higher Being who bestows us with unconditional love and guidance. They have shown me that the gravity of the situation is only sustainable if you adhere to the basic tenets of what G-d is all about: Love.

I thank them from the bottom of my heart and soul, for they saw me go to a dark place and wouldn’t let the gravity of depression claim their family, friend, mom and wife. They have shown me that with love, true Love, you can be weightless in a sea of anchors. Thank you Charles, Zion,Carolyn, Edward, Malachi and Kymani for helping to lift the weight of grief and anxiety from my life. I am forever indebted to you guys :)

And to gravity I say,” thanks, but no thanks, I’ll use you sparingly…”
