Do Over

Have you ever heard the phrase “Do you”? I have a lot. What does that mean? Well, it means whatever defines, describes or outlines who you are, then so be it. Only you know what that really is, so be like Nike just do it you!
Cool. I’m feeling like Patti LaBelle I Got A New Attitude! I’m ready! I’m ready to make it happen from head to toe! I’m Looking For A New Love and try something new….new curling iron for starters.
If you’re going to do it, do it right. Right?

Let’s get started. But, wait. What’s wrong with this picture????

IMG_0933.JPG

Wait. Where’s the handle?? I’m confused. Am I missing something??? So, I go (back) to the box. Still confused. So, now I pull out the instructions to read. I mean, who reads the instructions on a curling iron??? Me!!!! Well, what-ya-know! I didn’t get a new curling iron. To my surprise, I got a wand. A wand! What the hellicopter! Am I now a super hero and this “wand” makes me have super powers??? I wave the wand in the air. Nothing happens. Hmmm. I read more. I need a glove. Oh, no! Mister Bill!. A glove??? With the glove, I can touch the wand and wrap my hair around it. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?! I don’t want Shirley Temple curls. But, I guess that’s what I’m gonna get. I start looking inside the box thinking where’s the glove??? To my surprise, no glove. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?! I say to myself again. I am not doing it right or nothing right for that matter. Oy vey!

I realize, just like anything, pay attention. What you see is what you get. I got something different than what I wanted and needed. The same goes with what you hear. In actuality, what you hear is what it really is. The truth. And just like any relationship, friendship or companionship, pay attention. Do it! Do it right from the start.

Question: What relationship do you want to “do over?” Why?

Silver or Gold

Friends. How many of us have them? Friends. Ones we can depend on.. What about you? I like to believe I have thousands of friends on Facebook, twitter and Instagram . While I have been called a social butterfly, I can make friends easily. So, yes. I have a lot of friends, literally

IMG_0910.JPG
and figuratively
.IMG_0912.JPG

IMG_0897-0.JPG
In actuality, however, I have just a few close friends. One has always been by my side, one my right hand and one keeps me in my right mind. Who’s a real friend?, you ask. Well, a real friend is…

I’m not saying to beg and plead for people to be your friends.

Keep it movin’.

Nor am I saying to nit pick over how you believe they hurt your feelings and find 50 Ways To Say GoodBye.
Instead, if you have a true friend in your life, Hold On to them. People come and go, but true friends are few and far in between.
So wether you’re friends literally or figuratively, I’ve learned

Make new friends, but keep thee old. One is silver and thee other’s gold

Dating Survival Kit

In the event of an emergency,…you do A, B or C. Depending on the emergency depends on what you should do. For example, if there’s a fire you call 911 or in the event of an earthquake you are supposed to stop, drop and roll right? Basically, in the event of any emergency you should have a plan. They say if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. Ok.

Well, this weekend my girl ( fabulous that she is!) created a traveling survival kit and gave to me what she called essentials for any destination. Interesting. I decided to take this to a whole new dating level….

100 GRAND: Money, money, mon-ney! Just in case you meet a cheap one!
TWIX: For ‘tricks’ up your sleeve, like having your own $ IF they are cheap!
SNICKERS: To always have a sense of humor, like you’re funny…& cheap!
SUCKER: They’re just a sucker for your love! LOL really? Don’t be fooled!
GOLD: Dreams do come true! Go for the gold!

Did you notice the first three essentials are chocolate?! Lord knows I love me some chocolate! Good lookin’ out! Thanks, girl!

So, the next time I travel step out I will survive! Hey-hey! (Sing it Gloria!)
