The Grapevine Sway, LLC The GrapeVine Sway LLC is changing how people communicate information by offering different ways to project words via writing, poetry products, and more! All things words!
(4)

When people hear the word, grapevine, they associate it with rumors, gossip, negative or exaggerated information. But the truth is, prior to the negative connotation, the grapevine served as a productive means of communication. Grapevine communication was used when formal articulation was insufficient. During the American Civil War of the 1860's, the grapevine was used interchangeably for informal communication. The military used vine-like wires to communicate over lines they thought were confusing, yet discovered it transported information quite rapidly and stronger. It was also used by slaves who passed on what was happening in the slave owners' homes, for political and social news, and how they knew when a battle was over (Jitendra Mishra). The Grapevine simply became a vocal telegraph to transport information, network with others, and exchange ideas. When a message is passed along from one person to another, it becomes tainted. But, when there is a group, a movement of people with one message to pass on to another group of people, the possibility of that message being conveyed precisely the way it was learned is bound to affect and create a long lasting, if not permanent mark. Our message is to use artistic common talk, also known as Poetry, and send it through the grapevine to provoke thought, be internalized, be talked about, viewed, listened to, recited, and enjoyed. Poetry and the Grapevine go hand in hand, in that they both serve as platforms to display and project information, ideas and perspective. From door to door, city to city, poetry was used as a unique vessel to reach out to the people in an artistic fashion. It became a movement, so much so that we're able to take poetry classes and express ourselves in poetry lounges. The Grapevine Sway is an organization that will serve as the holding house of poetic language, producing and presenting fruitful minds with juicy information for others to sample, and ultimately, crave. We'll satisfy your natural desire to know what is really going on, especially in the world of poetry like you've never seen it before! It doesn't stop there! We are a custom writing organization meaning we write blogs, articles, and ghostwriting. Let us know your writing needs.

Mission: Our mission is to change how people communicate information by offering different ways to use words. We will do so via our custom writing, poetry, stage performances, and apparel. We believe in the power of words, and strive to be a clear reflection of its impact around the world for future generations.

Question:

When you need something to keep you motivated during crazy times(such as Covid19) what do you use to stay motivated?πŸ€”
Let's have a moment of transparency for a second...

Challenges are never going to stop happening. You need things to keep you uplifted to keep you from falling into depression, from losing your mind, and to just push you forward.

You have a family, personal troubles, and just trying to stay motivated throughout life but, one thing's for sure and two things for certain if you don't have FOCUS🧐 you will not see the results of success you've imagined. You'll only see the results of distractions. You need strong words of affirmations to serve as little reminders to keep going.

That is exactly why "FOCUS" was written. There are 2 out of 4 volumes of six-word motivational books to help get YOU get through some hard times, and to help you stay on your personal journey of success. Don't get discouraged by what's happening. Submerge yourself in things that will give you a encouraging perspective.

"Focus: Success Is Not Given, It's Earned" Volume 1 is a six-word poetry motivational #chapbook that you can read once per day to train your mindset.

"Focus: Don't Let Your Dreams Remain Dreams" Volume 2 is six-word poetry, motivational workbook that will get you express yourself on paper.

You NEED something to keep you motivated during these times. These books were written with you in mind.

The great news? You have access to a digital download! You don't have to wait to be inspired because there are ebook versions of both books for you to get it directly to your phone. 🀳

Tap on the link below and see for yourself. It's important for you to stay up because when this pandemic is over with, you should be able to talk about how you got through these down times.

Deal?

Be safe.

Reviewer Remark: "This book of six-word poems really helped me out with perspective. One of the poems reflected on trusting the process...The process became less of some existential idea and more of the method in which I transform and transition from one way of life to the next."

Happy New Year! The GrapeVine Sway was initially created to inspire people to like poetry more. Surprisingly, many people say they dont understand it because there are so many metaphors.

I, Tequila Cheatham McCray began writing poetry since I was seven years old. It is my goal to turn the GVS into a poetry lounge no matter how small or big.

Thank you for supporting, sharing, and liking the posts! We need more visibility this year and doing work in the background to get a physical location in DC, Maryland area!

Stay tune!

If everything is always going right...
If you see yourself as perfect...
If your hands are not getting dirty...

Can you tell whether or not you're making progress? Everything is all good, right? Or, is it the way you make it seem?

When mechanics, construction workers, doctors have oil, dirt, or blood on their uniforms, it shows they are putting in work. They are willing to get their hands dirty in order to solve a problem for someone else.

Yet, imagine if people never needed their cars fixed, if the world was already build with bridges and buildings, or even if everyone was in the best of health.

Where there is no work to be done, you can't fix it. Fixing anything require a great deal of action which leads to getting your hands dirty.

Even a mental and emotional process can be chaotic and messy in order for to heal.

What are you willing to get your hands dirty with today?

The first time could have been an honest mistake. The second time was a choice. Anytime after that, the word "Sorry" is used as a tool, manipulation.

After a certain point, that word becomes weightless.

Sure, you can eat alot...You can eat ALOTof fruits and veggies! πŸ˜†

Portion size is important but, what's more important is WHAT you eat because it determines how you function throughout the day and even over time.

If you eat junk, expect to have mood swings, to be less attentive, and for your body to react in a negative way to what you are feeding it. Your body is similar to a car. If you give it cheap gas, you will notice how it jerking, slowing down, and just having overall complications.
When you give your car the good stuff, the car will ride smooth, right?
A full tank is a full tank, right? If it's a full tank of bad gas, then expect problems. If it's a full tank of the good stuff, imagine how far you can go, how long the full tank will last, and just the overall performance...πŸ€” The goal should be quality not quantity.

Tank: Shots Fired Lyrics By Tequila Cheatham McCray

#throwbackthursday

"Shots Fired" is a catchphrase used to indicate someone has insulted someone in an effectively cutting way, and implies the insulted party will most likely engage with the insulter."

People took shots at Tank, questioning his sexuality after a phrase he made.

Some people take the first shot to start arguments. For some reason, they are either not content with their own lives, are bored and need a source of entertainment, or simply just enjoy confrontation to get a rise out of another.

The only thing it does is speak volumes about those people characters, mental state, and incompetence.

They should find something else to do, grow up, and/or seek a mental institution.

What are your thoughts? Have you experienced such people? Are you one of those people? What did you do when shots were fired at you?

Let's talk!

Psychologists say we operate from two emotions: love and fear.

If we allow fear to guide us on this journey we call life, imagine where we'd end up in the next three, ten, thirty years...πŸ€” Once fear is inoculated into our minds and spirits, it spreads like a nasty disease.

If we allow passion(love) to be the foundation for what we do, imagine how our lives would be fifty years from now.

Once love is planted in our minds and spirits, it spreads onto others, it too, also spreads.

How do you prefer to operate?

It's not enough to be around cheerleaders. You need people who are going to challenge you in the best way in order for you to go to the next level whether that is spiritually, mentally, emotionally, professionally, financially etc.

Don't you prefer to be around honest people who want to see you be the best in every angle of your life?

It doesn't make sense to keep showing up in spaces and places where people grimace or hate the thought of you.

It doesn't make sense to force your presence on those who don't understand you.

It only makes sense to be around those who celebrate who you are, your mission, but who are not afraid to challenge you in a way that promotes your growth.

All too often, you surround yourself with people you have to "put on" for...put on your make up to keep them from seeing marks...put on a smile to keep from revealing how you really feel inside...put on an act that is nothing like who you really are inside.

There are people in this world who accept and love who you are at every stage that you are. Being around those people become the fuel, the powerade you need to keep being you, to keep being true, and press on.

No need to "put on" for anyone who automatically celebrate and want you to win, right?

Motivational speaker Eric Thomas said it best:

"Be around people who celebrate you."

That's winning.

Communication means more than conversation.

Fellowship..."friendly association, people who have the same interests."

It's hard to communicate with someone who's not on the same mission, who's not going in the same direction, who doesn't understand you as a person, who doesn't believe in what you do, or even someone who's just plain not interested.

The communication process is easier when you surround yourself with like minds and with those who are your target audience.

At some point, you're going to have to let go of some of the decisions you've made that effected your life up until this point. As long as you allow these things to grow inside of you, it will take longer to heal.

Start by forgiving yourself. You're human; Then, start forgiving others because for real, hurt people hurt people. Stop hurting yourself. Let it go mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Dont you want to be free and secure?

"Sex is easy; give him poetry.
Sex is easy; give her poetry."
#twelvewordpoetry

It's easy to give someone the physical parts of who we are but, when was the last time you gave him/her some words to let them know your heart?

A month after my husband and I met, I was inspired to write a poem oneday while on the train. It was a different type of feeling I had ever had, and it was a different type of attention than he was used to receiving. I'll never forget the look he gave me when I read it to him. It was a tender look...you know, the one you see on TV when a man is in love with a woman? Yeah, that look.

Men don't only want sex. They want to know who genuinely care. This poem let my husband know that he would get more than just the average.

This poem made him put a ring on it.😊

In honor of our anniversary, we will be recording a video EXCLUSIVELY for GVS subscribers today! Sign-up to

During the growing process, you will see some things shed, including people in your life. It's the process if seasonal changes.
Pay attention to the trees. As beautiful as the leaves are during the Fall, they are actually dieing but, there is so much beauty. It is one of the most powerful messages to know there is beauty in change, during the hard times, and ultimately, life.

Don't use today to complain, gossip, lie, etc. That's not the reason you're given a chance to wake up every morning.

All you had to do was make it to the next morning, so you can make things right today. All we have is today to impact, and leave the world better than it was yesterday no matter if it is one person at a time, or multiple. If you are living life based on your purpose and dreams, you have the ability to spark change and create a domino effect of smiles.

Take advantage of it.
