Amen Sista!!! AMEN!!!

Standard

I tumbled across this amazing video yesterday and shared it on twitter and couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I decided to share it with all of you as well.  Before you watch, I just want to share with you my thoughts on why I think this video is so superb.

First of all, we as women (all women of all races) need to stop looking at one another as though the other is not good enough or in pitty just because she doesn’t have a man…really!!! We honestly need to stop letting our “relationship” status define who we are in society.  The older you get, the worse it is.  It seems that if you are not married by a certain age something must be wrong with you.

Nuh-uh…NO, NO, NO, NO, NO [yes, i’m shaking my finger and twistin my neck]

You are NOT right! First of all, just because you have a man, doesn’t mean you HAVE a man.  Look ladies, if you are getting the crooked eye from some other married woman because you are single then something might not be right in her relationship…yah know.  Most happily married women I know don’t question or judge your “status” it’s the women who are walking a tight-rope on their not so steady relationship that have the most to say about you to make them feel better about themselves and what they do (or really don’t) appear to have.

People with real, true love understand how hard it is to find and know how lucky they are to have it and understand that it takes time…the others, well they just get married because they think it make them a better person in society…then they get divorced when the children go to college and call it “irreconcilable differences” LMAO.

How about this you might not have a man because you are not gonna take whatever is thrown your way just to say you “he put a ring on it” like Kim said “the ring don’t mean a thing”  and honey-baby-chile I’d rather wait for that person to come who is going to be strong when I’m weak, shedding the light when I’m in the dark, thinking outside the box when I’m stuck inside….my best friend, my supporter and I want to be him all of thee above to him as well.

So, I don’t know about you but I’m not single because something’s wrong with me. I’m single cause I wanna be.  And instead of crying over why I don’t have a man, Imma do me!  Believe me, I have kissed enough toads and recently learned that I WILL NOT settle for less just to say I gotta man! So death to the Tragic, Scientifically Less Attractive, Unmarried Single Black Woman!!

And with that being said…. you may press play now 🙂

It’s a New Year! Change is Here!!!!

Standard

It’s a new year and I am exited about what is to come. Although I really don’t know what is ahead, I do know that I am making some new commitments and I am really exited to see them play out.

One thing I want to do new this year is projects.  I have found myself surfing the web a lot lately and reading a lot of magazines with creative ideas that I want to try.  I consider myself someone who is crafty, but not because I come up with ideas myself, but because I am inspired by others to create things.  So, this year I’m going to take the ideas that I have been saving on bookmarks and pintrest and bring them to life.  Living it up in the real world. Books on my “read list” will be cracked open.  I just want to do a little more.

As far as my natural hair adventure, I am rolling strong.  I have found what works for me and I continue to see so much progress.  I absolutely love my hair.  I can remember being a teenager wanting my hair to be as healthy as it was when I was younger, but no matter what I did I could not obtain  the health or the length that I wanted.  I will continue to grow in this area as well and record my progress and share what I stumble upon with all who may be interested.

Basically what I am getting at is this:

I am evolving and as a result the purpose of this blog is going to evolve as well.  I love to write, but I want to make sure its fun, interesting and relevant to those that stop by.  I want you to have as much fun looking through my site as I do writing,  As I discover and try new things that I find, I will share with all of you and hopefully you will NJoy as much as I do.

What you will find here are lots of fun crafts, inspiration and ideas on everything from hair, fashion, beauty and style.
