THERE ARE PERIODS OF TIMES IN OUR LIVES WHEN WE EXPERIENCE EXTREME JOY; TIMES WHEN WE HONOR SUPERFICIAL THINGS & IN THESE SUPERFICIAL AND MATERIAL THINGS WE PLACE A CERTAIN VALUE & SOMEHOW THESE “THINGS” MAKE US HAPPY. HOWEVER, THERE ARE ONLY CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR THAT WE HONOR OURSELVES…NAMELY ON OUR BIRTHDAY.
OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS WE’VE TOUCHED ON PERSONAL REJUVENATION, CIVIL DUTY, RESPONSIBILTY & BEING SUPER…
LET US BE REMINDED THAT ON OUR “BIRTH” DAYS, WE HAVE A RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY TO BE DUTIFUL TO OURSELVES FIRST AND REJUVENATEOUR OWN LIVES, IN ORDER TO BE SUPER! MEANING IT’S OKAY TO BE SELFISH ON YOUR DAY (w/o bringing detriment or harm to others). SO MANY OF US WORK TIRELESSLY, ON A DAILY BASIS, BEING SELFLESS FOR OTHERS. THEREFORE, HOW DARE WE BE SO ARROGANT TO ACT LIKE OUR BIRTHDAY IS “JUST ANOTHER DAY”, AS IF WE ARE NOT IMPORTANT? HOW DARE WE ALLOW OTHERS TO BE DISMISSIVE OF OUR FEELINGS & MAKE US FEEL GUILTY ABOUT OUR PERSONAL REQUESTS AND/OR DESIRES, AS IF WE ARE NOT DESERVING? HOW DARE WE NOT HONOR GOD BY BEING THANKFUL & ACKNOWLEDGING THE DAY THAT HE KISSED OUR SPIRITS AND BREATHED LIFE INTO US??!!…BY NOT DOING SO, IS DOING GOD & OURSELVES A DISSERVICE…AND HOW DO WE TRULY SERVE OTHERS, IF WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO SERVE & TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES?! WE NEED TO KNOW THAT WE ARE TANGIBLE & THAT WE ARE VALID BECAUSE WE ARE…THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE! OUR “BIRTH“ DAYS ARE THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR THAT WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE OUR OWN WORTH & FLAUNT OUR OWN VALUE & TRULY BE HAPPY FOR OURSELVES! IF IT IS YOUR DAY OR MAYBE EVEN YOUR WEEK…MAKE IT ALL ABOUT YOU! IT IS YOUR GOD-GIVEN BIRTH RIGHT & IT’S YOUR TIME TO SHINE!
~WE ONLY HAVE ONE LIFE, LET’S LIVE IT!

TAMIKA HARPER AKA GEORGIA M.E. AKA GA ME POTENIAL FIGURATIVELY FULL
Born under the sign of Sagittarius and under the name
Tamika Harper AKA
Georgia Me (GA ME)
has been acclaimed, anointed and appointed the Queen of Spoken Word. This single mother of one is an inspiration to all who has & to those who will, encounter her. Her passion and devotion to her culture through art is truly inspiring and the words that drip from her lips are not only wise but prophetic and prolific. This woman is more than a force to be reckoned with and has always claimed; through the will of God, all things are given…what he feels you deserve you will get. GA ME began performing as a spoken word artist as young woman, at the ever popular gem spot, “Moore Epics”; which provided her the stage for her first win in her first Spoken Word Slam and travel outside the state of Georgia for her first time, to compete in the “Slam Nationals” in Seattle, Washington. This was just the beginning of a plethora of opportunities to come her way. Now, in less than a decade, GA ME is not only one of the most sought out spoken word artists in the country but has also appeared on all 5 seasons of the HBO television production Def Poetry; as well as, become a Tony Award Winner of the original cast member of Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam on Broadway. Additionally, Ms. Harper’s impressive resume includes: The Vagina Monologues in the Royal Playhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland; The Souls of Black Folks 100th Anniversary at Columbia University where she shared the stage with Phylicia Rashad, Jeffrey Wright and Danny Glover; Showtime at the Apollo, hosted by Monique; BET Tonight; The Today Show; the voice of various national car brand commercials and performing on every major stage in America, from the Fox Theatre in Atlanta to the Radio City Music Hall. GA ME’s commanding stage presence will have you in awe and her memorable signature works such as “NIGGODS” & “FULL FIGURE POTENTIAL”, will have you mesmerized. She says her goal has been to inspire, uplift and motivate …“Ill never chase money, Im fulfilling my mission; I work for GOD, Russell just signs a check”. One could say, mission accomplished; because after a night with GA ME, you will be left figuratively FULL!
