We all have a unique barometer of awareness.
I use to envy people who could block out the ugly to only focus upon the positive, then I realized it wasn’t an evolved awareness, they were just naive.
It wasn’t that they blocked out the bad, it’s that they were never aware of it’s warning to evolve it.
We have all been around those who are oblivious to life, seemingly unaware of the chaos or the subtle shift of life or energy.
These people choose where they want to interact, but when life catches them off guard they also tend to freak out.
Then there are those of us, who are annoyingly observant, we , who catch the eye rolls, or the pick pocket, or the insult disguised as humor, or anger unspoken, but felt~ we see and feel it all, nary missing a beat.
We are the annoying ones.
We are the ones who appreciate perceptional humor, because slap stick is too predictable.
We are the ones who can read a room, a person, a situation or a dog.
We are hard wired.
Awareness is learned, and absorbed throughout our lives.
We either file it away, or we deny and ignore it.
Aware people struggle being around unaware people~ it feels forced and unnatural, but being in your own state of comfort and confidence helps set the tone of acceptance with those still learning the ropes of being present.
When we are in a heightened state of awareness, we can often follow many things at once, nuances, conversations, gestures, energies, emotions, even authenticity~ we call out bs easily.
We see and feel through life in a way where nothing truly escapes us.
Awareness is handed down by our first role models.
If we are lucky to have insightful parents or guardians, we gain from that insight, although it’s an unspoken awareness, that is first developed, as we challenge our own perspectives and we accept those that are different.
Accepting a perspective without challenging your own awareness, keeps one stunted in others’ perspectives, it does nothing to advance personal wisdom. Be an original.

Omarosa may have taped confidential White House discussions #FACTS JAN. 18, 2018. Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman may have taped confidential West Wing conversations and fears being caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, sources disclosed on Thursday.
The former reality TV star’s official last day in the Trump administration is Saturday — despite the abrupt announcement of her departure last month — and her next step seems to be lawyering up.
The soon-to-be former assistant to #President#Trump and director of communications for the #WhiteHouse Office of Public Liaison has held exploratory meetings with several high profile attorneys for potential representation, a source told #TheNews#ManigaultNewman has met with Harvey Weinstein former attorney #LisaBloom and former #BillCosby lawyer Monique Pressley among others.
It is not immediately clear why the former “Apprentice” star is seeking legal help, but those with knowledge of her unceremonious removal from #theWhiteHouse say she is “very concerned” that trouble is on the horizon.
The 43-year-old apparently believes she may become a fixture in Mueller’s investigation into possible connections between the #Trumpcampaign and #Russia election meddling “Everyone knows #Omarosa loves to record people and meetings using the voice notes app on her iPhone,” a source disclosed. “Don’t be surprised if she has secret audio files on everyone in that White House, past and present staffers included.” A recent ban on personal cell phones in #theWestWing which followed the release of #MichaelWolff explosive White House tell-all was related to Manigault-Newman’s track record of recording conversations, the source added.
The White House and Manigault-Newman did not respond to requests for comment. #NINFONETWORK#ENTERTAINMENTNINFO#VEHICLENINFO#FOODNINFO#POLITICO#HUFFPOSTGRAM#BUZZFEED#HOLLYWOOD#VANITYFAIR#DAILYMAIL#BBC#LONDON#WASHINGTON#OMAGAZINE#OPRAHMAGAZINE

Tracee Ellis Ross makes less than Anthony Anderson on 'black-ish' #FACTS JAN. 18, 2018. Tracee Ellis Ross’ starring role on “black-ish” may be in jeopardy if she doesn’t get a raise.
The 45-year-old #actress reportedly threatened to cut back her appearances on the #ABC#sitcom over a lower salary than co-star #AnthonyAnderson according to the #HollywoodReporter#Ross reportedly plans to make up the difference with appearances on other shows if the salaries aren’t evened out.
Anderson serves as an executive producer on the show as well as his starring role, which could account for some of the difference, a network source told the Hollywood Reporter.
Over the first four seasons of “black-ish,” both Ross and Anderson have been nominated for several Emmys and Golden Globes, but he has never won.
Ross won a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical TV series in 2017, becoming the first black woman to do so in 35 years.
The conversation about pay gaps arose amid reports that Mark Wahlberg earned 1,500 times more than Michelle Williams for reshoots on “All the Money in the World” after Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey.
Wahlberg eventually donated his $1.5 million paycheck to Time’s Up, a new initiative that aims to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace started by more than 300 Hollywood actresses. William Morris Endeavor, which represents both him and Williams, also donated $500,000. #NINFONETWORK#ENTERTAINMENTNINFO#FOODNINFO#VEHICLENINFO#BLACKISH#BUZZFEED#HUFFPOSTGRAM#CELEBRITIES#NYC#LA#HOLLYWOOD#DIANAROSS#COMEDIAN#OMAGAZINE#OPRAHMAGAZINE#TRACEEELLISROSS#USWEEKLY#VANITYFAIR#DAILYMAIL#BBC#LONDON#ENEWS
