Out with the old and in with the new.................. 2013 has arrived!!







OMG…. It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone. I can still vividly remember bringing in 2012, and anticipating what the year had in store for me. I decided to opt out of “popping bottles” at a party this year, and instead take the time to reflect on my experiences in 2012, and meditate on what exactly I want to accomplish in 2013. I stopped making resolutions a couple of years ago because I always ended up breaking them before the end of January.

Instead of making resolutions, I decided with each new year I will simply aim for progress in any area of my life, whether it’s minor or major. I definitely made progress from 2011 to 2012, and this time next year I want to be able to look back and see that I’ve made progress as well. It’s so easy to become stagnant so I constantly do self-evaluations to check my growth.

With a new year comes a new beginning so with that being said, make the most out of 2013. If you have a dream, work on pursuing it. If you have an idea, work on turning it into reality. Go ahead and start whatever it is you’ve been putting off for so long. What I learned over time is that sometimes in order for change to occur, you have to change, and sometimes you have to change the people around you in order for that to happen.  I’ve also learned that if you keep doing the same thing, the same way, you’re going to get the SAME results. Aim for progress!

I wish everyone a blessed and prosperous new year! Make this year count! J

Is Cheating Inevitable?

            When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with anot

Dreams..........

    One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues: “We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt mat

His Past Ain't Pretty

I feel sorry for any show that comes on television between 8 pm and 11 pm on Thursday nights because Shonda Rhimes has taken that time slot hostage!  Her hit shows  Scandal  and  Grey’s Anatomy  are in their 4 th  and 11 th  seasons, and two weeks ago she premiered a brand new series called  How to Get Away With Murder . The new show has become my instant fave, replacing my love for  Scandal;  but that might change once  Scandal’s  storyline picks up. Last week’s episode of  How to Get Away With Murder  addressed a topic that was so interesting that I had to call some of my girls to get their input.  In the last episode, law student Michaela Pratt found out her fiancé slept with one of her classmates when he was in high school. You might think, Ok that was years ago and everyone has a past BUT the tea is that her classmate is a man. That changes the situation completely. She found out they slept together through the classmate who joked that he could have been the fiancé. Confu
