Big Brother

I guess Big Brother is always watching… what happened to freedom of speech? it’s my truth to tell. It doesn’t hurt anyone but someone knowing my business.

Ephesians 4:31-…

Ephesians 4:31-32
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

I wasn’t going to post anything tonight but I started reading my verse for the night and this came up. I couldn’t do anything but laugh. Why would I laugh? Every single day someone opens their mouth and says something negative about someone else. I’m guilty of it myself.  So please don’t think I’m trying to condemn anyone.  It just amazes me that we aren’t kind to one another or tenderhearted, we don’t try to understand each other to see where the other person is coming from. We judge without knowing the facts. I have already challenged myself to stop talking about others. I’ve been doing pretty good (not perfect), but I know that I want to do better and maybe people won’t talk about me.  I do believe that it starts with one person taking a stand against negativity so that others may change. Like Michael Jackson said “start with the man in the mirror.”

 

Peace and Love,

Bucket list

So I’ve been trying to mark some things off of my bucket list, and I’ve realized that I have no motivation to get things done. My lifestyle affords me to be frivolous with my time, so because of that I’m not very accountable with myself when it comes to getting things done. So how do I fix that? How do I push myself to do the things that I want and wish to do with my life?  The last thing I want to do is wake up one day and realize that I didn’t accomplish anything that I wanted to do.  Here is what I have on my bucket list:

  • Make a duet album of love songs with my husband.
  • Have an online talk show, discussing current events, celebrity news and things that actually affect black women, my own way.
  • Create my own online website where I feature all the entertainment that Alabama has to  offer.
  • Live and work overseas.

That is just a taste of my list.  (you should see my dream shopping list) But I can’t seem to keep myself focused on these things. I know I need to do better. I have to do better.  Life is too short not to live it to the fullest. I want to be able to just look back and say I have lived.
