Me and Jennifer Garner

“Humble women don’t complain. They sing and dance through their tribulations. In the end, they become the biggest winners in the game.”    -Kathryn

I am a woman who believes in womanhood, sisterhood, celebrating the beautiful woman that lives in us all. Humble and modest women derives from the 50s-70s’ era.

Jennifer Garner since the beginning of her acting career has been a fun, comical, witty, smart, humble, and modest young lady. And I’m happy to see that she still posesses these qualities still today. Jennifer Garner and I could be the best of friends on any given day.

I speak of women being humble and modest because most of today’s women lack these qualities. What is real? What is fake? So many women are caught up in reality shows, social media and don’t realize that they are not keeping it real. They are just performing for likes and whatever else.

Some serious soul searching need to go on with some of us women because some of us are lost. Being humble, modest, or nice does not mean you’re weak. Being mean, arrogant, and obnoxious is weak. So ladies, today is the start of a new beginning with all of us. What will your new beginning be about? Will you be humble and modest? Or, mean and ugly? The choice is yours. It is you who has to live with the consequences whatever decision you make. Let it be a good one.

Let the Record Spin

Photo: Pinterest
Oh how music has changed since the 70s’ era. We’re going to talk about this era because this was around the time I was born. 
Who did we have back then? We had Marvin Gaye, The O’Jays, The Isley Brothers, The Temptations, Average White Band, Stanley Clarke, Eric Clapton, and more.

This was the most memorable time for music. For the world was in a transition. Music was in a transition.

What I do know is that you learned a lot from the songs of the 70s’. Artists who were just regular people had a lot to say on various topics.

The music of today doesn’t have that feel, that way to make you imagine or relate to all while inspiring.
When it comes to 70s’ music, I will say, “Let the Record Spin” any day. Because it was love conveyed. And we fans showed love by purchasing such classics. I can’t say the same thing about the music of today. I hope it gets better one day.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!

Photo: Pinterest
Good morning, everyone. I hope all is well everyone. Today…I’m feeling real good. My birthday is tomorrow and I’ll be the big “40”. Who would’ve thought? I don’t know quite what I want to do. I just want to get spoiled and pampered on my big day. Lol. 

I myself am very nervous about turning the big “40” to be honest. I’ve been a smoker for 26 years and it’s the one thing I want to stop. 
I want to have a long life with my family. I love them so much. But I can’t do that if I continue on smoking. So I have to set a quit date and start minimizing how much I smoke. That’s the key to quitting anything. Start doing it less. Well, June 29th is my big day. And I pray that I see it. Happy Birthday to Me!

June Weddings: Its Time For a Discussion

Photo: Pinterest

A “bridesmaid” is the 3rd in command at any wedding. The bride is the first in command. The matron of honor is second. And then there is the “starry-eyed” bridesmaid. Usually dressed almost as elegant as the bride. “Bridesmaid” dresses have to be flawless in details. 

Photo: Pinterest
Some shun the color “pink” for weddings. I myself feel it is perfect next to the color white. Soft. Supple. Simple. There are various shades of pink, including “blush”. However, its really up to the bride to make the final decision for bridesmaids dresses. She has to feel it. See it in her wedding. And be pleased. 

Photo: Pinterest

All bridesmaids call for something different. The age of the bride and her bridesmaids matters when choosing which shade of pink to wear and the style of dress. The last thing you want is for the bridesmaid dresses to be over the top and make the bride and her dress a tad bit invisible.
Asymmetrical is cute, fun, and daring. Its great for a young bride and her bridesmaids when it comes to dresses, especially if your wedding will take place outside. Simple hairstyles are best when it comes to such a type of bridesmaid dress. This style is favored amongst the young at heart bridesmaids.

Photo: Pinterest
For the older or classic bridesmaid, how about a “Isabella?” Its formal. And elegant. Perfect for bridesmaid who don’t desire to reveal too much cleavage. June weddings simply cause for a discussion when considering bridesmaid dresses. The ideal bride wants her wedding to be memorable and unforgettable. Who can hide in a summer wedding? No woman can. So make sure the bridesmaid dress is flawless. Anything else is unacceptable.

Good Morning, Grafitti Ladies

Photo: Pintereat

Good morning, everyone. Good morning especially to my, “Grafitti Ladies.” What is a “grafitti lady?” A grafitti lady is a woman who is beaten down by love & relationships in the worst way.
To all domestic violence sisters who are most defomitely grafitti ladies,

I too have been where you have been. I too ran scared for a period in my life. No one knows what you go through while you’re going through it. Yes. They see your scars, but not all that you have lost.
You don’t have a voice in a male dominated situation. Its your situation and you try to find peace, but there is none. The women whom only have themselves to worry about have a better chance of escaping their situation than those with children.
I remember my days under so clearly. I was verbally abused, threatened by my youngest daughter’s father. He told me if I ever left him, he would kill me. And he said that I belonged to him forever. He drew a gun on me during the last days of our relationship after returning from a visit at my brother’s house. I knew then I had to do something. I had to do something because deep down I felt that I would soon meet my demise if I stayed in this.
My youngest daughter’s father downfall in this situation was that he had already been to jail and had a probation officer. I didn’t see why his ex-wife then had called the probation officer to get him away from her when they were together, but I see now. And that’s when I knew he was more afraid of going back to jail among anything. And I played that card to get him out of my life.
I remember visiting my sister one weekend with our newborn baby in tow. While there, I thought long and hard about my next move because everything I was doing affected my daughter as well. So I called him where he was home at my house. I threatened to call his probation officer if he didn’t move out of my house by the time I came home. I found my apartment empty when I returned, his belongings missing, and my key was left on the table. I thought that would be the last time I would see him…he proved me wrong. I eventually had to get an emergency ppo against him. And that stopped him from threatening me. It stopped everything.

Ladies, all of our situations are different. I had a mate who was more afraid of going back to jail than anything. He was fearful of that and that kept him at bay. But oftentimes for most women it doesn’t always work out that way.
Ladies, the moral of this story is to think about how you can prevent your demise. I was willing to die trying. What will you do?

Rocker Chics Live It Up!

Photo: Pinterest
A woman is as lovely as she believes,

It doesn’t matter if she is in the finest things or a pair of jeans.

Every woman no matter what your personality or style  should have a heart of a “rocker chic”.
For they live it up in a sense and make every second count.

Forget about the drug play that is associated with such a woman…a rocker chic.
For the strong ones show strength, restraint, and won’t let anyone climb their “tree of life.”

A “rocker chic.” That is what I want to be. Here I come!

Under Renovation 

Photo: Pinterest
For the last year or so, I have been “under renovation” as well as the apartment I live in. The stress that I’m enduring right now has my anxiety level through the roof. Moving is such a task, especially if you’re comfortable where you are. Well, my apartment manager says I have to move into a newly renovated apartment. I’m happy about it. Don’t get me wrong. But I’m bipolar and doing such tasks like this stresses me out. But I will get through it. The relocation office in my building are the sweetest and promise to make this easy for me. I just need to pack ahead of schedule, keep myself busy so that I don’t freak out about this, and just breathe.
I moved into this current apartment 3 years ago with just the clothes on my back. No furniture. No bed. No nothing, but I had peace. Looking back, I realize I have come a long way and have accomplished many things. I came from homelessness and I have been maintaining things for 3 years. So with that being said, I am most definitely going to put my best foot forward and think positive about this “moving” thing. Its a fresh start. We need a fresh start sometimes. So I am under renovation and I am going to keep calm. Good night!

Happy Reading!
