Barre Morris II A fathers expression of love and his active involvement can have a lasting and positive impact, even if a father doesnt share a home with his children!

My life experiences span almost 50 years through the 20th and 21st centuries. I arrived here in '69, shortly after Generation X began in '65. During my time here, I have preserved and prevailed, and triumphantly thrived at times it seemed difficult being alive in a world of adversity and conflict that was surrounding me. I climbed above and overcame 8 of Holmes and Rahe's top 10 stressful events. Although, my list includes racial and gender discrimination, raising a special needs child on the Autism Spectrum as a signle father, as well as voyaging through (4) of the worst Hurricane flood disasters in U.S. history. However, despite the trauma's and challenges that have stormed through my life, I am living proof that life's "miracles" do happen and still exist! Dreams can still come true regardless of the nightmares from the past! I am committed to help people through discovery and self-awareness of the connection between the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of life here on Earth. My life book has stories of transformational success with positive and inspirational information that has helped me sustain long-lasting and successful results despite the illusions created though one of my five (5) senses. I want you as a reader to be filled with confidence, strength and understanding to help you withstand and overcome any resistance that has set itself up against you, or from accomplishing your dreams and pursuing your purpose in life. Prosperity is possible when we are overflowing with health and happiness. We can prevent ourselves from becoming long-term hospital patients, and preventing the onset of chronic diseases and ailments. We can also dramatically improve the recovery-time from our bodily injuries. We do not have to rely on opiate medications to make the pain go away! Use my weekly memoirs and posts made on this page as gifts, my presents to you today until my book is published and released. Hopefully, these messages will inspire you, as they have me and others to move forward without fear, or regret of yesterday, or the past robbing you from experiencing an amazing future tomorrow!

We ALL go through different things at different times in life that we don't understand. When you enter a valley in life, it's not because you've done something wrong, that you failed at something, or that you deserve some punishment. Yet, we try to make up excuses, come up with action plans to reveal and/or define who we are through those experiences, what we do, or accomplish, etc.

Conscious awareness is when we instead realize that all of the things we do, and are able to accomplish, etc are all the expressions of God within us...the I Am of who we truly are and how we manifest our true power. Its the Light of God shining through us and in us! All of the opportunities that we are faced with are ALL here for us to take advantage of, and are invitations to go deeper within to discover who we truly are! The lowest valleys that we "go through" are ALL roads leading towards greater self awareness and higher levels of our consciousness! The development takes longer when we complain and/or get discouraged when "bad" things happen, or when things happen that we don't expect or plan for to occur.

Darren Weissman, thank you for the invitations to #HEAL and the opportunities you have shared with me these past few years! My bubble continues to deflate as I move beyond the limitations of my ego! Infinite love and gratitude!💯❣🤟

What a blessing..I am a new Microsoft Certified Professional in Power Platform and Power BI Data Analytics Associate is thus Friday. I took this certification exam last Friday and due to technical difficulties was only able to answer 32 of 34 questions. I was beyond frustrated and spent an hour on the phone with customer service only to be told I had to reschedule and couldn't finish the test. Well apparently the 32 questions I answered were correct enough to give me a passing score without finishing the test. Called to reschedule this morning only to be congratulated on passing! I AM what I want to be...the intelligence and wisdom backing my every effort and actions! Infinite Love and Gratitude!🤟

My Health and Wellness Training

COVID-19 cases are still rising where I live in Housotn, Texas. Although the rate of cases rising has slowed down a bit. However, the real impact on hospitalizations has more to do with the shift in diagnosis of age demographics, Back when the summer began, we saw the highest rate of hospitalizations among patients in their 40's and 50's. In August, the increase of COVID-19 cases is among people in their 20's and 30's who require less time hospitalized, or no hospitalization at all. Although, there still is a risk of long-term health consequences from this virus. However, younger people don't get acutely ill like older patients, especially those older patients with co-morbid conditions (more than one disease or condition is present in the same person at the same time).

Flu season is fast approaching, so it is super important to make sure your immune system is strong and healthy. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids, and there are some supplemental vitamins and minerals that can help such as Vitamin C, and Zinc!

Chapter 5 is titled Channels of Communication and Connection, and it continues from chapter four with my personal injury story. However, it's more about growing in my self-awareness about the typical effects of a TBI that impaired my verbal communication and emotional functioning. Fifteen years after my initial TBI, my Neurologist referred me to start the TIRR Memorial Hermann's Challenge rehabilitation and recovery outpatient program for people who experienced brain injuries. The first day after I began my outpatient rehabilitation for a second time, and less than sixty days after I had moved into a new home and new school district with my son and second wife, I got laid off from my employer at that time. I was over forty years old, and it was the third time I had been dismissed from an employer in the past three years and my third work-related relocation. But after losing my job this time, I was open to learning all I could about my brain injury instead of focusing my attention on how long it took for me to return back to work, or complete the Challenge program.

Within two months, I had completed a series of challenges presented in TIRR's outpatient program. During the same time, I also completed a series of interviews with Memorial Hermann's Information Systems Division Project Management Office to begin a new career in healthcare I.T. On Friday, October 21, 2016, TIRR Memorial Hermann awarded me with a certificate of completion of the Challenge Program. Then, the following Monday, October 24, 2016, I received the keys to my new office working full-time at Memorial Hermann as a Senior I.T Applications Project Manager!

My TBI and coma, as well as getting dismissed from my job, were all life-changing events that provided me with opportunities to focus on improving my self-awareness and understanding of Neuroanatomy, my TBI, and the associated physical and cognitive deficits. Growing in my self-awareness and being open to learning new stress management strategies, interpersonal communication and problem-solving skills helped me to manage my feelings and communicate with others better. These new tools enabled me to listen and understand what is going on with myself and others when I connected and communicated with them in different ways, which also allowed me to successfully navigate through four rounds of job interviewing before I was offered the job.

The Ingredients of Your Special Sauce is the title of chapter 4 in my proposed book. I share a truth that my favorite Hay House author Dr. Wayne Dyer once said, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." The summer of the year 2000 forever changed my outlook on life and my understanding of what a man and father was after I survived a life-threatening car wreck and awakened from a non-responsive coma. I never saw the Dodge Ram pickup truck racing against a Chevy Camaro through a red light. I didn’t know that the truck would t-bone into the driver's side of my car and pin me to a traffic signal post requiring the Jaws of Life® to extract me. The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that I sustained reset some of the negative thinking patterns and false beliefs of masculinity and fatherhood that I had held for so many years.

The stories that we tell ourselves about our performance during the past seasons in life can easily lead us on a future path to continue the same actions. The stories and expectations of behavior that our parents, family members, and even our society tells us about our identity have been linked to our conscious and subconscious minds definition of what men and women should do and how they should act as parents in the home, as well as in the workplace. Similar stories have described and characterized ethnicities and ages, which have established social norms, expectations, and beliefs. Our minds will accept and agree with anything we focus our attention on.

The recovery and rehabilitation for my Traumatic Brain Injury began within my mind, then body as I first awakened from my coma. Forgiveness in my parent's heart and their relationship started the recovery and rehabilitation of their love and marriage at my hospital bedside. Had I not survived, then I would not have been able to be present with my younger sister to sign the wedding certificate for the re-marriage of my parents after being divorced for over eighteen years! Had I not survived the car wreck, I also would not have been able to help conceive, be present, nor an involved and engaged father when my first and only son Elijah, was born in 2002, or my daughter Aaliyah, in 2006. I would not have been present to watch my oldest child Brittany walk across the stage to receive her Bachelor's degree in 2018. The generational cycle of an absent or non-involved father in my family tree has been broken.

Stage 1: Differing Parenting Approaches, Mike Dooley Interview

New data has emerged around the concept of the “new” father of the 21st century. Not only are fathers are increasingly expected to be involved in the direct care of their children, to be equal partners with mothers in caring for the home (if they do live together), but are still expected to serve in the traditional role of the breadwinner. Differences in parenting styles and adherence to the established parental gender norms and behaviors often create issues between mothers and fathers today. However, what causes significant problems are differences in the overall parenting approach. Thinking patterns, beliefs, morals, and values-all lead to different approaches to parenting.

Families and the American culture especially, in general, do not adequately prepare boys and young men with the parenting skills necessary to provide the care of children. However, fathers are many times expected to know this information or have low expectations of their ability to learn these skills when their child(ren) are born. Therefore, a father's expression of love and active engagement in his child’s life can have a lasting and positive impact, even if fathers do not share a home with their children, or if they are not his biological children.

Listen to my recent interview with New York Times best-selling author, Mike Dooley, as we talk about some of the family dynamics that have made him the loving and engaged father he is today.

Chapter 3: Reaping the Harvest the final step in laying a solid family foundation in my proposed book, Tools to Help Parents and Modern Families Thrive. Chapter three’s title is based on the old phrase and metaphor; you reap what you sow, also indicating that our present decisions and actions inevitably shape our future consequences. New seasons have transformed families and community structures in the 21st century, especially in America. Hindsight truly is 2020.
In many cases, but especially now anger is ignited when people perceive rejection or invalidation. That anger is about the preservation of personal worth and essential needs! The dirt of slavery and human trafficking has manifested into the African American/Black community as Post-Slavery Trauma Disorder (PSTD), and not only Post-Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD). Systemic racism has been one of the primary drivers that created a booming business of mass incarceration in the United States. Historic Jim Crow laws and the Fugitive Slave Act were all established and enforced in America to create racial inequities of justice and punishment when it is applied to the African American/ Black people, especially men.
PSTD has left the majority (about forty-five percent) of Black families with children (Black alone or in combination with one or more other races) living with their mother only, or other relatives since the beginning of colonization in the U.S. The rates of divorce, remarriage, partners living together, and single-parent households have continued to rise since the 1960s. In society today, four-in-ten childbirths in the U.S. occur to women who are single or living with a non-marital partner. The adverse effects of father absence place children at higher risk, on average, for alcohol and substance abuse, child abuse, criminal behavior, lower educational success, emotional and behavioral problems, suicide, poorer physical health, poverty, risky sexual activity, and teen pregnancy. Studies have shown that men who grew up with absent fathers were more likely to become absent fathers. The studies also revealed that women who grew up with absent fathers are more likely to have children with absent fathers. Almost seven in 10 of all Black adults (67 percent) say that they have received a chronic illness diagnosis, including mental health-related conditions. Almost thirty percent (29 percent) of patients are without access to a doctor in a non-emergency situation as compared to only twenty-three percent of whites with chronic disease reporting difficulties accessing doctors.
Each one of us can do our part to respond and help prevent the spread of 2 key viruses, COVID-19, and racism as they continue to remain a public health threat in communities across the globe. Although, that requires everyone to accept situations and circumstances as opportunities for growth and development. Then, taking the actions necessary to make adjustments that create better outcomes the next time. If at first, we do not succeed, then be determined and make a choice not to give up on the positive results that we want in our life and family members' life. Those who fail to adapt will fail to survive.

Avengers: Infinity War is a 2018 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers. It was the fourth film and the first superhero film to gross over $2 billion worldwide, breaking numerous box office records. It became the highest-grossing film of 2018 and the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time both worldwide and in the U.S. and Canada. The plot was about the villain Thanos, and his pursuit of a Gauntlet and six Infinity Stones. The six gems that could yield unlimited power are the Mind, Power, Reality, Soul, Space, and Time stones. Once Thanos acquired all of them, including the last Power Stone, he snapped his fingers, teleported away, then half of all life across the universe disintegrated. In 2019, Avengers: Endgame was released as the highly anticipated sequel. It grossed nearly $2.8 billion worldwide, surpassing Infinity War's entire theatrical run in just eleven days. It became the highest-grossing film of all time! Iron Man/ Tony Stark theorized that the quantum realm could allow time travel, and the Avengers pursued Thanos to obtain the Infinity Stones from the past to undo Thanos' actions in the present. Tony Stark was successful in stealing the Infinity Stones from Thanos and uses them to disintegrate Thanos and his army, at the cost of his own life.

With ALL of the 2020 chaos across the globe and especially in America, I can’t help but ask myself are we living in the times of the Infinity War, or the End Game? There has been a virus of racism and discrimination eating at the foundation of our societies worldwide. White supremacy and racism was used by Hitler and his army as the “Power Stone” over Jews in the 20th century. In the 21st century, it almost feels as if the MAGA campaign is represented in the Time and Reality stones. The time stone allows you to see into the past and the future; stop, slow down, speed up or reverse the flow of time; travel through time; change the past and the future. The reality stone at its full potential, when backed by the other five Gems, allowed you to alter reality on a universal scale and also create any type of an alternate reality the holder wishes.

However, EVERY ONE OF US can help fight this war against the virus of racism and discrimination by yielding a power within the gem of our Mind stone aka our Crown chakra! The Mind Stone is represented as the manifestation of the universal subconscious. Our Crown chakra is located at the top of our head and gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we open to what is beyond our personal preoccupations and visions. The universe continues to reveal its dualities, paradoxes, unity in diversity, change, and harmony throughout the entirety of our lives. Everything and everyone on Earth is collectively intertwined in systems and cycles working together and affecting one another. We are all interconnected and united as a family of one humanity and one source of unconditional love within our universe. All things happen for positive expansion in our self-awareness individually and collectively. While the world we live in is composed of many different, sometimes seemingly opposing forces of contrast and adversity, they all occur, demonstrating that we can coexist and even complement one another.

If you could change reality by snapping your fingers, how would things be different today and in the future?

Dedication to Hay House Publishing and Houston Strong Hurricane Harvey survivors of nearly $200 billion in damage

August of both 2016 and 2017 will probably be two of the most memorable and significant months of transitioning experiences in my middle-aged adult lifetime. Especially, since they were spent in Houston, Texas! These were months that brought many unexpected circumstances and events in my world and personal affairs. Although other events were also planned, everything worked all together perfectly to create positive shifts, adjustments, focus and realignment in my life where it was needed most, and at the perfect time.

On August 30, 2017, Hay House Founder and motivational author, Louise Hay transitioned from her physical body completely into the spiritual realm. That date also commemorated the second-year death anniversary of Hay House self-help author, and one of my most influential teachers Dr. Wayne Dyer. For almost 30 years, I have personally grown and developed after reading book titles such as “You Can Heal Your Life” and “Wishes Fulfilled”. I will be forever grateful to Louise Hay and Hay House Publishing Company, as well as Dr. Dyer and the many other Hay House authors for the spiritual teachings and self-help lessons that have been shared with me in various books throughout the years.

The path that I am on and the healing I have experienced in life has been greatly inspired by you and the love you have given me is being mirrored back to the world through this book. I have committed my life and have dedicated my own personal stories, messages and life experiences in this book to help others heal while improving their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness. May your legacy of self-help and empowerment continue to be carried over, brought across, and shared with generations to manifest love and healing throughout this world for the generations to come.
