HAVE YOU MADE PEACE WITH YOUR PAST?

I, too read this O magazine issue with 20 Questions Every Woman Should Ask Herself Part 2 (I need to find and read Part 1 as well😗 ).  ‘Have I Made Peace with My Past’ ( number 19) caught my attention like you,  number 10 entitled ‘Do I Enjoy My Own Company?’ caught my attention even more.  I started to ask myself that same question!  My answer was yes.  Yes I do!  Just like the article, me and myself have/had so many shared interests!😊  That led me to the last question, What’s In Store For My Future?.  Hmmm.  Right now, I don’t need to get FAR AWAY for a SECRET RENDEZVOUS with  the “perfect man.” 

Right now, I’m just LIVIN’ FOR THE WEEKEND. 😊 Beyond that, hmmm.  “Go with an open mind “, the article says.  Ok.  My future holds adventures and people I have yet to dream of meeting, seeing, greeting or being! So, to answer this question I say to you time will tell….Sing it O’Jays Livin’ for the Weekend 😄. Well! Well! Well!

Facts of Lyfe

I recently read an article in O magazine the other day,
titled Have You Made Peace With Your Past? It stuck in the back of my mind for a couple of days.image

It made me think. Is there something in my past that I’m holding on to? Or, has my past shaped me into who I am today? I would say, a little of both. There are things in my past that I didn’t want to let go of, because those memories have brought me joy when I was down, after reading the article, I think it’s time I let go and create new memories.

There are also things in my past that were not so wonderful, but those things have shaped me into who I am today, an educator. a mentor, a health coach, mother and wife.

The gist of the article was, our past changes when our perception…

right? Wrong. I know its hard to plan a trip to out of town, much less out of state. I’m talking about a road trip that’s a hop, skip and a jump (like two-three hours) away from your neighborhood.

Yes I Am!

Recently I went to a birthday party.

Hello. How are you? Nice to meet you. Ya know, the friendly meet and greet time. I say hello to a friend of mine standing with another woman. I turn to the other woman afterwards, extend my right hand to her and kindly introduce myself.

“Hi, I’m such an such “, she says shaking my hand. “Very nice to meet you.”, I reply. “Are you the author of the two books (YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?! and the sequel YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MIND!)?!”, she quickly says with excitement smiling at me. “Why, yes. Yes I am!”😃.

She began to share she read my books over breakfast, how much she enjoyed them and it was her daughter ( which happen to be my friend’s mother) whom shared them with her. Wow! Nice! I made a good first impression and didn’t even know it!

You never know who you’re going to meet, for you may have already made a good first impression before you actually meet for the first time.

Question: When have you made a good first impression without even knowing it?

Who’s On Your Team?

Got family? Friends? Frien-a-mies? Yeah, but who’s got your back? Through thick and thin, ride-or-die ’till the end? Who’s that girl/guy?
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you
. Who’s that girl/guy?

There are three important people on my team. Who are they? They are me, myself and I.. Who’s knows me better than me?

I can do everything all by myself. Yes, I can eat by myself, drink by myself and shop by myself. Let’s be Frank real though, who really wants to do everything by them self?? Honestly, I cannot do everything by myself. I cannot build a house by myself or operate on myself and (despite what the strong may think) I surely cannot have a baby by myself!

I love myself wholeheartedly 😍 and I am my worst/best critic/cheerleader!!! Aren’t you down with Optimal Personal Pride?
When it comes to OPP, damn– skippy I’m with it!!!!

Question: What about you???

Grenade ~ Bruno Mars
O.P.P. ~ Naughty By Nature

Game On!

You’ve heard the phrase “Are you ready for some football?” Not just any football, but Super Bowl Sunday football! Well (single ladies) ready or not, here it comes! All my single ladies, put your hands up! Not really a sports fan? A lot of men are all over sports, especially the Super Bowl game. They’re not going to pay any attention to me while the game is on, right? Wrong. Oh-so very wrong my dear. Let’s think this through for a minute.
One, there’s you!

Two, there’s shoes!

2015/02/img_0744.jpg
Slip on your high heels

And some of that sweet perfume, it sure smells good on you
Slide on your lipstick, and let all your hair down

You can also just S&M (sit and model) the stilettos ….

Sporting a team or team colors remaining neutral. Not a heels girl? Boot-up, girl!

And three, when football season is over, batter up!

2015/02/img_1160.jpg
Oooooh, these are my favorite…

2015/02/img_0749.jpg
Or walk it out…

2015/02/img_1161.jpg

Whatever you do, bring your A-game!
Go! Go! Get him! Get him!
And when you get him, get him
Oooooh! Aaaaaaah!
Oooooh! Aaaaaaah!
(That’s my cheer for you😉)

So, question: Are you ready for some football?!
