ronamercado "Empowerment begins with love...integrity, honesty, virtue - that's what it is all about." Dr. Cornel West.
Thankful for the opportunity to attend the 23rd Annual Empowerment Congress Summit at USC. Shout out to Mark Ridley-Thomas who founded the Empowerment Congress in 1992 & has created this annual event for community to come together. Thanks @azul213 for the invite, raising my awareness & introducing this to me. It was day full of spirit & an honor to meet many people from the community whose actions are making a difference. #ECSummit23 #EngageEducateEmpower

A few of the quotes from the day... "The arts are critical to building safe, thriving communities." @sabrawilliams @ActorsGang "Social capital is as important as financial capital. The arts & culture build social capital." @lacommons Karen Mack "Everyone has heard of #BlackLivesMatter but few know our demands, it's not just a hashtag" Mark Anthony of @dignityandpowernow

As you read this, remember you have a warm bed & a cooked meal at home. Everyone wants to be happy, so pay attention.
Acknowledge that happiness is not quantified by materialism.
I know many people who are reading this right now aren't happy with their lives. I used to think that when I have a nice car & a lot of money I would be happy. Yet on my journey I have met hundreds of people with all of these things, yet none of the happiness. If your bank balance outweighs your sense of purpose, or your only sense of purpose is working to achieve a greater bank balance, you will struggle to find happiness.
Some guidelines for happiness I wrote down.
Appreciate what you have, gaining more won't make you happy if you aren't happy with what you already have.
Live in the moment, don't video everything you see, take it in whilst it is happening, then relive the memories forever. You were there but looking at a phone screen...? Give more than you receive, be it your time, money, gifts, love & laughs. When you give someone your best, the best comes out of you.
Stop worrying about your future!
Your future is going to happen, it is yours to happen to. If you want something then work towards it, but make sure you are happy on the way there.
We are all going to die, concentrate on living.
Don't practice escapism because you are unhappy with your reality, be real, keep level headed and make sense of your life. Being high or drunk all the time is a problem, nobody wants to be ill or crazy or both!
Life is a journey not a destination, you never want to get too comfortable, comfort is where you put on weight, get slow, become bored.
I'm not saying throw yourself out of a plane, but you should try to do something that scares you now and again.
Don't worry too much about what other people are doing, they are on their own journeys, enjoy yours, try not to compare your behind the scenes life to someone else's highlight reel.
Bling from the inside out, not the outside in, as it doesn't work the other way round. What's in your heart & head shines brighter than what's on your wrist & neck.
Love your work, this will be a big part of your life.

ronamercado Was bummed that @BoochiesSB was closed for the day and ended up discovering @MesaVerdeSB...if you are ever in the neighborhood give this place a try. These mushroom tacos were delicious and so was the dessert! Good food and good people! @vegan_ish you should try out both places if you haven't been! 3w
