MESSAGE: Thoughts...

 Some people feel some type of way, which is the reason for this blog posting. 

They say you are only as strong as those around you. That you give off the energy that you get from others. They say that you act like those around you and if you don't it's only in due time before you get sucked in.

If such words are true, then why do some of the most successful people come from horrendous backgrounds? Or from families who don't know the meaning of family? Or hang out with friends who are the "wrong crowd"?

If those words are true, then how come I am not like those who are around me? How come I haven't fallen into the pits of stupidity or judgement like the ones that I allowed to be around me? How come I have this  humility within myself to say "I was wrong" or "sorry" unlike those around me?

It's all a matter of identity.

Truth is, there is some truth into the statement, you are what you hang around. Or what I love to hear, guilty by association. If you hang with the bad crowd it's a matter of time before that crowd has an affect on you and your doings. Another way to look at it is to be a statistic and fall in the category of NOT being subdued by the doom of that around you.

I've had a lot of bad things and people around me. I've seen  many things,  not more than some but more than most. I've been through things no one would ever imagine or believe if I stated; only because it's covered with my smile. Truth is I'm stronger than those who I had around me. My energy is better than those who I wasted time on calling friends or boyfriends etc. I refused to accept that "guilty by association" or "you are who you hang with" statements.  Instead I'm the opposite and a damn proud statistic.

I'm now on a different path and have noticed that those around me might not be down for me. I've noticed that the company I kept wasn't working because they had ulterior motives. Most of those people didn't want to see me reach the point I was at, or to see me be so positive. There is a time and a place for everything and everyone. For me that negative energy and those people had to go and be replaced. Replaced by others who have a vision to succeed and be happy. Replaced by those who were no longer on the path I used to call home. Replaced by those I can learn from and look up too. I don't regret knowing or being friends with or being with anyone I was associated with before. They are the reason why I will never forget who I am, where I came from and what I had to do to change.  I  knew that time was up for me and I decided to make a change. I wasn't as good as the company I kept I was different, and that's okay.

What one might deem as a "bad crowd" might be the only family someone else has. That doesn't mean they are or act the same way. Trust me. I know.

The Reality of Reality

I see pictures of gorgeous actresses and musicians that grace the covers of Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Complex and King etc. On television I hear "bitch this" or "that nigga ain't shit" or "you slept with so and so" or "try me" I think you know where I'm headed with this. It's sad, depressing, and unfortunately a reality for many people.

We see these things, and a lot of time we "oo and awe" at the drama. We post things to our Facebook and Twitter about how good "Love and Hip Hop" was even though it's a disgrace that Hollywood executives call entertainment. We laugh, but did you ever think in reality they are laughing at us? Let's face it, we all have been that ratchet girl on the television, did a little Miley Cyrus activity, been with a dude who's like Stevie J or hey even acted like Stevie J. That is reality and they are just broadcasting it. Now since it's highlighted on television, that type of behavior is now "IN?"

 Being ratchet is no longer frowned upon it's now an expectation. Sounding like you can't pronounce certain words or use certain articulation is now acceptable. It's upsetting to see the inanity with the English language. People don't expect much from our generation anymore, these shows don't help, and we don't help our image either.

This year has been the year of self expression, I'm not knocking anyone for acting sexually, for wanting to explore we are all grown. I'm not judging those who think that "twerking" on everything that has a penis is okay, and I'm sure as hell not pointing the finger on your misuse of language. I'm surprised that for those who act this way turn around and post on Facebook how "niggas aint shit" or "solo dolo don't need em" or "fuck love Imma do me"  okay fine, VENT. Just come to reality that if you act a certain way you will attract that type of person. If you want something different that's easy God says it "CHANGE" it  might not happen tomorrow or the next day.

2013 the year of the ratchet and classless. The year that twerking was noticed (despite the fact it's BEEN around for years)  the year that almost EVERYONE got it in some way or another and the year where butt injections and implants were highlighted killing thousands of women around the world all because that's portrayed as beautiful.

This blog  was inspired by the lyrical reality of  @yesLIVcan  , so with that I wonder what 2014 will bring? I hope it's the year where simplicity is overturned by dreams and aspirations to achieve them.  I hope it's the year of the ladies and gentlemen. The year where reading makes a comeback and words are spelled correctly. The year where education is sexy again instead of how big your butt injects are. Or maybe I might push the line with this one, but the year where women actually compliment one another and not throw shade because her outfit looks better than yours. A girl can only hope right?

MESSAGE: Blame Game

So I got a message from someone  about this and she had TONS of questions I think she was releasing somethings to me. I was going to ignore it (sorry) but funny how things work because this subject on what she was going through, applies to something that was brought to my attention this morning.

It amazes me how easy it is for people to not take responsibility for their screws up and how easy it is for them to be complacent in allowing and or blaming another person for their wrong doing. In a superficial world, it's so easy to get mixed up in many things. Many people I know aim to please others, do things or act a certain way, kiss ass, point fingers, just so they can sleep at night.

It's so easy to play the blame game. It's so easy to say Mary did this when in reality you did because you don't want to get caught up in the reality of your own struggles, wrongs, or mishaps. For those people who have to do this it's a shame. To run away from your issues and your faults, to go and hide like a coward instead of facing the reality is a shame.  Always point the blame, not taking it, denying it and so on only leads to a bad out look on you. Like the famous quote says "what's done in the dark, always comes to light"

I don't focus to much on these people, because they are sad human beings and they need help from a higher power.I know people like this and it's a shame I tend to stay clear from them. Ownership and keeping your word or even having a word is what's important. If people can't trust you, or count on you to do what you say then why are you surprised when people walk away from you?

For those who love to play the blame game and know how to play it well be careful; God doesn't like ugly, he is always watching. For those who are worried about people in their circle who do this, step away and do it fast, it's only a matter of time before they throw you under the bus.
