Can I Get A Witness?!

It’s ladies night! My girls and I are going out to hear some comedy. Let’s do this!

You’ve got mail…..
“You’re beautiful. I would love to take you out.” Signed, Melvin. “Thank you”, I replied. And “Sounds like a plan.” I gave him my number for us to get together. He called right away. ( Hmmm. I don’t know if that’s good or bad). After the introductions, I discovered he had two jobs and a few roommates. Yes, I said a few. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

Lord, help me Jesus! I had to write about this boy man ( amongst others 😳)! Read all about it and get your copy today!

You Got What I Need

The dating game (not the show) is like being on a roller coaster ride. There are ups, downs, and more ups and downs. It’s also like playing Truth or Dare blindfolded with girls and boys at summer camp. Oh, no! You just don’t know what you’re in for OR what’s going to happen.

Oh, baby you, you got what I need. But you say he’s just a friend.
What you want, Baby I got it. What you need, you know I got it.

Question: What do you want or need in a relationship? Why?

Facts of Lyfe on New Years Resolutions!!!!

Tell it like it is…be-FACTS-u-ful😊

Facts of Lyfe

Lyfe is about making choices that are pleasing to your life style. However, every year many people start the year off with a New Years resolution to work out Everyday and to eat salads for lunch and dinner. For  most, that resolution slowly fades away like the lick-on tattoos you find in a box of Cracker Jacks.

Most new years resolutions fail because lack of healthy relationships with yourself and others. How strong are the relationships that are most meaningful to you? Do these relationship support you?

Just as food is needed for the body, love is needed for the soul ~OSHO~

What relationship is holding you back from being your most authentic self? How is this relationship hold you back? What can you do to regain control of your relationships?

Live Lyfe with no regrets.

When you’re a baby, it’s cute. When you’re a kid, you’re called spoiled and when you’re grown , well the name calling gets worse. Now you’re just too damn picky. Woah! You callin’ me picky?! Then so be it. IF this miss piggy picky is going to the market looking for Kermit the Frog mister picky singing “Wee! Wee! Wee! all the way home, I’m gonna pick get what I want and what I need. As it should be! Because If Loving You Is Wrong , I Don’t Want To Be Right.. (Ahhhhhh, hell heck no!) Next thing you, me and everyone in between I will be sayn Why You Treat Me So Bad?!?!?! When you, me and everybody in between I should be sayn
Yes, it’s over, call it a day
Sorry that it had to end this way
No reason to pretend
We knew it had to end some day, this way

And you’ll say
Guess it’s over, the kids are gone
What’s the use of tryin’ to hang on
Somewhere we lost the key
So little left for you and me and it’s clear to see
…it’s over. What you mean “is?” Oh, it WAS over; Too Much, Too Little, Too Late.

A poem entitled Just  Sit With Me was shared with me and it says it perfectly…..

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama
and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should enjoy it.

Sing it Michael Bublé….
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good 😉

Hello & Goodbye

Well, well, well. It’s that time of the year. The end of the year to be exact.

Lookin’ back over my years
I guessed, I’ve shedded some tears
Told myself time and time again
This time I’m gonna win

But another fight, things ain’t right
I’m losin’ again
Takes a fool to lose twice
And start all over again

Think I’d better let it go
Looks like another love T.K.O.
Think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby
Looks like another love T.K.O.

Tried to take control of the love
Love took control of me
‘Cause you lose all thoughts, sense of time
And have a change of mind

Takin’ the bumps and the bruises
Of all the things of a two-time loser
Just tryin’ to hold on, faith is gone
It’s just another sad song

I think I’d better let it go
Looks like another love T.K.O.
Yes, I think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby
Looks like another love T.K.O.

I think I’d better let it go
Looks like another love T.K.O.
Yes, I think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby
Looks like another love T.K.O.

Sing it, Teddy! Oh! Love got a hold on meeeeee bad! So, I started to reflect back on love. Love of my life, love of me, myself and I, plus love of life in general ( that’s a lot!).

Then, I came across the top ten of my 2014…

Thanks, Bobbi. Why didn’t I apply these to everything gosh darn-it?!😚
That’s good stuff! Yet, I need come up with a new list. Out with the old (year) and in with the new (year)…

Good lookin’ out, girl! I love this pic!

I’m thinking ten is too long. I want to shorten it. How about ninja chop it in half?! Yes. But, wait. That’s even too long. One wise woman recently shared three things with her facts of Lyfe ( and ( I feel like Slick Rick and his Children’s Story) here we go….

1) Live life with no regrets
2) Be kind to others
3) Know your God

Three. Thaaaaat’s right! Three and recycle. This is my new (year) motto!
Let’s toast….

First glass to 2014. Goodbye, Bye, Bye, Bye! Second glass to 2015 with ‘Well, hello!’ ( in my best Wendy Williams voice) “How you doin’?!”

I’m gonna…

Put on my big girl boots, grab my bag and my notepad and I’m ready to do this!

5-4-3-2-1 HAPPY NEW YEAR!
