Provocative is a word meaning to provoke. The Encarta Dictionary describes provocative as: deliberately aimed at exciting or annoying people. Do you provoke positively or negatively? Do you try to provoke at all? Are you riding through life trying to get through it or are you trying to leave more than you took from life? Do you diligently question your motives and point them in the direction of love?
I have an aggressive personality and have always provoked people. Years ago, when I stormed through life with a chip on my shoulder and a victim attitude I seemed to provoke negatively.

I always instigate my problems as I also instigate my opportunities.
I have always been a creator. I just had to decide what I wanted to create. Do I provoke harmony and goodness for the planet or do I provoke disharmony. I must go within and ask these questions to God and trust my intuition and not hope that your reaction will tell me what I need to know. People don’t always necessarily agree with me as my provocation may bring change and change is often painful in the beginning. My job is not to please everyone. I had to decide what I am, what I believe and live it loud.
I tend to provoke; that is a given. I hope that I provoke people into action. I hope my provocation is to improve people’s lives and not destroy them. I hope that my words are always of encouragement toward one’s potential. We all have twists of differences in our personality and must be patient with each other but also must remember that we are all siblings of God. When we act in love and empathy we tend to do the right thing. This is why I always leave you with…
Your Life is PERFECT!
