This Too Shall Pass!

Greetings Virtual Friends!

The last month in my life has been really tough for me. Despite celebrating 2 new milestones in my life, other aspects of it just wasn’t falling into place. I had to make some hard decisions about how I was going to make it through. Decisions that would affect my future but would be well worth making. In the midst of my trial I found myself complaining, feeling down and even doubting my worth. Then I saw this:

Inspiration

We have to learn to take our focus off our problems and re-focus on what we want the outcome to be. Some things/thoughts/people are not worth the mental power. They aren’t worth the energy it takes to even keep them relevant. Reading this reminded me that I was giving into my situation verses letting it be a thing of the past. Found myself letting it mutate my thoughts and self worth. Let this post be an inspiration for you. Let it be a reminder that (as cliche as this sounds) there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Turn your test into a testimony. I know I will. 🙂

2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long.  Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever.  So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen.  For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”

Locs, Love, Life!

May I Have Your Attention Please…

It amazes me the lengths people go to to get noticed. I mean really is it that serious? Or is it even that important? Especially if you are attracting the wrong kind of attention. Don’t get me wrong getting noticed or being paid attention to is not a bad thing, it’s how you get or what you did to get that attention. For example, recently I went to a concert and noticed a heavier bodied young lady with shorts on that could probably give her a yeast infection. And I’m a firm believer of getting your sexy on however it’s just some things you just shouldn’t do or wear! Trust me I’m far from a hater. I can appreciate a women who exudes sex appeal. But if I were that young ladies friend I would have definitely kept it real with her. Again Rihanna wore a revealing ensemble recently to an awards ceremony. I guess this is expected of her because that wouldn’t have been the first time she decided to show/share her assets. But still is that what you want young women to see? Is this truly how you want to attract attention you so early seek? Going to such lengths for 5 minutes of fame never made sense to me. And it never will! I assume if celebrities will go to such lengths mediocre folks like myslef will do just as much. But let me say this….never lose your integrity for the spotlight. Even if it’s for a few seconds. Know your worth! Know your value! Know what abilities you have that will get you the right kind/type of attention! Because surely selling your soul won’t achieve what you are looking for in the grand scheme of things!

Happy Monday Folks! 🙂
