Celebrating black women in history.
5. Sophia George
Sophia George (born 21 February 1964, in Kingston, Jamaica) is a Jamaican singer. She is best known for her 1985 hit "Girlie Girlie", which reached number one in Jamaica, topping the RJR chart for 11 weeks, and was also a Top-10 hit in the UK. Her other Jamaican hits include "Lazy Body", "It Burn Mi Belly", and the duet "Ain't No Meaning"; all four songs appeared on her ten-song 1986 album, Fresh.
"Girlie Girlie" was written by Sangie Davis. At the time of its release, George was working as a teacher of deaf children. In the UK, George remains a one-hit wonder based on that song. The track was used as title music on Going Overboard, a movie featuring Adam Sandler.

Not here to step on people’s beliefs. If you disagree then keep it moving. We don’t have to agree on everything. But your success in being led by religious texts depends on your interpretation of what you’re reading, the understanding that much of it is comprised of parables, and it contains a good amount of prophecy which can be decoded if you are aware of important concepts and teachings outside of it as well.
But our programming has been deep. And it’s time to break out of it. Think for yourself and do not let people shame you for being logical. This life is not about being led. It is about letting your spirit guide you, creating your own path using your personal gifts and talents, and building for the next generation, etc.
Mostly all of us were programmed to follow authoritative figures and not think about what we are being told. It started in our household. Next, in the school system (in the schools I attended students were shut down for questioning what we were being taught ALL THE TIME). Finally, in the workplace.
Computer chips are designed after the human brain. The way they sort and store information, can have programs coded into them, and also be erased completely. Governments and psychologists know this. And they used this knowledge on the world’s populations. We all are programmed by the societies we are placed in. Through educational systems, television, news programs, constant fear mongering, negative/positive talk from family and friends, self-talk, etc. What you feed your brain, will become your thoughts. Your thoughts then create your reality.
Some of us live in harsh environments, but do your best to stay away from drama and negativity. Use positive self-talk. Tell those around you (especially the children) I LOVE YOU. Show people who are close to you that you value them. We’d all be surprised how the smallest things can make a huge impact on our lives and on the lives of those around us. Most of all, think for yourself. You know what’s best. Just go within and believe in YOU.
