Wisdom Wednesday: Maturity

Good Morning Virtual Family!

In an attempt to hold myself accountable to my blog I’ve decided to implement 3 new themes, which I am actually very excited about. On any given week I’ll either do a Motivational Monday, Wisdom Wednesday or Flashback Friday!! As cliche as they may seem, I think it will be fun to come up with something that will either make you laugh, think or simply make you smile.

To kick off this new theme today I’m sharing this meme for Wisdom Wednesday.

Wisdom Wed Meme

As I’ve gotten older this meme has become my truth and I’ve accepted it. My peace of mind, self-respect, values, morals and self worth are more important to me than holding on to a person that threatens any one of them. I’ve learned that some folks weren’t meant to stay. They are meant to play their role for the time they are in your life and they will either be a lesson or blessing. Either way, accept it for what it is and continue to live in your truth, life will be much easier that way.  😊

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! 🙂
