Inspirational Weekend Quote

When my brother was a little, Bob Marley was a constant in his life. He still is. My bro always felt a connection to Bob Marley's vibe, spirit, message of peace and connection to his family. And this is why I love this inspirational weekend quote.

The connection between my brother trickled down to my younger brother, who as a child, would pronounce the activist/singers name as 'Bob Barley'.

And just like that I have two brothers in the trance...

I started to understand the true connection that people have to Bob Marley's music and lifestyle when my brother and I were on a road trip. We were at a gas station, filling up on gas, and a man came over to us saw the One Love tattoo on my bro's arm and said to him, "One." My brother replied to the stranger, "Love."

I learned that day that one love can free your mind.

So today as you enjoy your weekend, take this inspirational quote with you. Mental slavery cannot exist if we free our minds. Tell me...how does this quote make you feel and do you agree with its message? Have a great weekend sweetie!
