Bow My Head

A few months ago, I began to question my "faith". I was angry, bitter and down right unhappy. I really really wanted to blame God for the tragedy that I had experienced. During that time, I found myself sad a lot. Most days I was depressed and cried. I realize now what I was doing differently. I had stopped praying. I was holding on to all of my hurt and anger...keeping it deep inside. I know now that was doing me more harm than good.

Earlier today I had an awesome conversation with first, my mother than with my cousin. Both of them really helped to bring me back down to where I needed to be and I'm sure they didn't even know it. Once I was done talking with them, I bowed my head. I felt my heart was still a bit heavy and I knew what was soon to follow. Tears. I was at work and I really didn't want to feel "that way" while I was not in the privacy of my own home or car. My 5 minute prayer session allowed me to release what I was feeling at the time. I really felt lighter after I had done so.

"Don't Sweat The Small Stuff"

I know, I know...this post is overdue. I haven't really had anything I wanted to blog about lately. The other day I was just reflecting and thinking about some things. I always hear people talking or see them writing about how their lives are this and their lives are that.....which brings me to this:

Everyday you wake up, you're negative. Every 30 minutes you have something negative to say. You whine and complain about any and everything. You are constantly talking about people, even those who you claim as your "friends" & then wonder why you can't find love or people who genuinely care about you. According to you, nothing in your life is going right. My question to you is this: If your life is so BAD why are you still here? Have you ever considered that maybe YOU are the common denominator as to why bad things are constantly happening to you? It really annoys me when people are never happy with anything. The mere fact that you're alive and able to walk freely is a blessing. You could be moving yourself around in a wheelchair, or on crutches, etc. I swear this world is filled with a bunch of negative ass people who are always crying and complaining. 90% of the stuff they complain about are not even THAT serious.

Sisterly Love

I've been a fan of Tia & Tamera wayyyy back when they had their show, Sister Sister. I used to want my hair curly like them (but never could get it because I wore relaxers then), super long and straight, and I even wanted a twin! They were soooooo cool to me. Seeing them all grown up now makes me beam lol. I know, I'm corny..judge me! Anyway, their new show on Style is a favorite of mine. I don't really follow "reality" t.v. these days because most of what you see is NOT reality. The majority of it is pure garbage and stuff I can't even watch around my own 8 yr old sister. However, Tia and Tamera's show is definitely one to be seen. Back in the day, I could never tell them apart. They were identical or so I thought. I can really tell them apart now, not just because one was pregnant either. Their personalities are like night and day. Here's a little background info on them: Tia plays Melanie on the hit show The Game (on BET) <--can't wait for that show to return soon! She and her hubby Cory are new parents a baby boy named Cree and Tamera is getting back into acting and is newly married to Fox News Correspondent, Adam Housley. Got it? Good.
I admire their sisterly love and the fact that they seems to be truly genuine gals. They are very big on family and so am I. Their family is "deeply religious" too which you don't hear about too often these days. It's cool to finally see a good show that's worth watching weekly. They just aired their season finale last night *weeps* so I'm a little sad about Anywho, if you're looking for a good show this is definitely one to watch. You can catch re-runs of their first season on Style.
