45 Lessons of Life

Good Day!

Im trying to stay on top of posting so bare (or is it bear) with me. My friend Janine (NY not Philly Janine... but s/o to my Niney) sent me this email and I thought the majority of them were good reminders. Especially after the weekend I had with the girls. My new motto is to approach each day like its my last (but be prepared in case its not)

Below is the email: Enjoy!

This was written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio.
"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.*
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry, God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.*
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, "In five years, will this matter?
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.*
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.*
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Remember these lessons as you go through life.

A few people asked me what me what vitamins have I been using. I take 3 different types. All from GNC. I take GNC Brand hair skin and nail vitamins, GNC Brand Women Ultra Active Mutlti vitamin, and GNC Brand Omega Complex. The hair skin and nails I have been taking for quite some time (see the post about my hair growth for the results). The Multi I have been taking since September. I definitely feel the difference. The days I forget to take it I am lethargic. I fall asleep on the train on the way home. I felt a difference within 2 days of taking it. The Omega complex I just started taking but it has Omega 3,6, and 9. I don't get that fishy burping people complain about. And Omega 3 is the one vitamin Dr. Oz said he would take with him on a deserted island, and I trust that elf-eared Dr. with my life...

Here are the bottles

and here are the actual vitamins.

The green ones are the Hair skin and nails, the orange are the multis, and the brownish are the omegas. They are easy to swallow (even tho I do one at a time).

Let me know if y'all have any questions.

Figured i would share

As we all know I am now semi obsessed with The Fashion Bomb Daily Blog. Well today, she posted about Short hair inspirations. I know a few people have mentioned wanted to cut their hair, especially to cut the perm out. For my length, I like Selita Ebanks, (who is starting to grow on me more and more after Kanye's Runaway Film her forehead deterred me before),

and as much as I hate to admit it, Rocsi.

The link is below. There are like 15 styles, so take a look and see if you get any ideas!

Yea, I think I am cute

Yes, I know I am in a bathroom. But I really love this Olive Military trench I got from NY&Co. It was originally 149.99, but with their sale, and a $50 off $100 coupon, I only paid 55. I also love this black leather gloves. Again, I know that i am in a bathroom and you can clearly see a toilet

Remember this is a judgment free zone...

For Colored Guys...

Really though Men...Really? All this anger?

Y'all just can't let us live. Have a weekend where we can feel like we can do anything, overcome anything, and support each other without men making this about them? I am really sick of the all these post about men saying how the movie depicted them in a bad light and Tyler Perry is a man hater. What-the-f*ck-ever! He based it off the play. Get mad at the author of the original play and poems if you want to be mad at somebody. The movie has so many women feeling good about themselves, feeling like they can do any and everything, and feeling like they are worth more than the world makes them feel, and you want to complain that it makes black men look bad. N*gga please...

How bout how bad black women look in this movie? That we support drunkards and abuse. That we are whores. That life gets us so down, we turn to other gods and semi cults to for saving. That we are crazy. That when we do get money, we are b*tches. That when we are nice, we are gullible and get taken advantage of. We look like full out fools. The message was that we are strong enough to overcome this. That we should support each other, especially in times of need.

Now, what if we replaced all the black men with white men? What would yall say then? I'm sure they would have something to say about the fact that the white men take their women and treat them like sh*t. Y'all gonna complain about how we support the white man. Blah blah mother f*cking blah. He even threw Hill Harper in there as a caring man (though I agree he wasn't a knight and shining armor).

The fact or the matter is yall need to sit all the way the f*ck down. Let has have a moment. Cause dead ass, Tyler Perry didn't put anything thing in there that wasn't a very sick but familiar truth.

ETA: I need to add on that this isn't just about BLACK women. All women suffer these same trials and tribulations. I personally feel (also, so do some scientific studies) that black women get hit the hardest with these things. If there was an all white cast, y'all wouldn't of said boo, however, I personally feel I would of still been moved. I am happy that it was an all black cast for the fact of people who wouldn't of been moved because of the color of the actresses' skin, and that a black person got credit for bringing this masterpiece to life.

Just some pics I love

For Colored Girls

So this weekend I went to go see the Tyler Perry movie "For Colored Girls". It wasn't exactly what I expected, and I won't be a spoiler, but all I can say is... DAMN

I looked in this movie, and I cried. And the crazy part is I didn't cry for exactly the same reason I thought I was going to. Of course there were parts that I could not help but cry, but some part I looked around and people were sobbing, and I wasn't even sniffling. And y'all know I am a cry baby. This scared me and caused me to cry I cant win. I felt... desensitized. And I felt like it was in direct correlation to this movie

Look what the f*ck black women go through on a regular basis. This isn't that is shocking. Women get raped, beat, whored out, become whores to avoid the pain, have their love trampled on, sh*t the list goes on. We encounter this on a regular basis. To the point where it doesn't faze a person who still cries at coffee commercials. If that's not f*cked up, I dont know what is.

I pray women look at this movie and realize their worth. I watched this and realized how blessed I was. I have not be inflicted by the specific pain these women have, but I have pain none the less. I realized I am Blessed that I am alive, and I am able to wake up everyday, and just enjoy life. Yes, black women go through so much, but we get through just as much.

I also pray everyone looks at the common denominator i noticed during the movie. Every women in this movie went through all there issues, but they all tried to go through it alone. They didn't look to their loved ones, or tried to help their loved ones. I notice with some many females, that they feel like admitting whats going on with their lives to other females. They feel like their burdening them. And can you blame them? How many times your homegirl came and said to you something that she had to do and she was tired or stressed, and your reply was "Yea I know the feeling! My ass had to do that plus...". I do that sh*t all the time. So, even if she was willing to talk, who would want to dump their problems on someone with their own?

So, I am going to make an affirmation. I WILL be there for my female friends. If you guys need someone to talk to, I am here. I wont mention my issues (unless you want to hear..lol). I won't downgrade your problems with my own. I will be your support system. I will be your legs when yours feel weak, you voice when you cant find your own, your tears when you think you have cried til you couldn't, and your smile when you don't have the energy to muster your own. I will be your friend.

I told one of my very closest friends who was going THROUGH IT, but shut everyone out to handle it herself cause she didn't want to be a "burden", to cut the shit. I chose to be her friend and I put up the Facebook status:

"When friends need each other, helping isn't a BURDEN. It's LOVE"

She told me to shut up. LOL. Love you guys, and have a good week...
