I call myself going OFF on people or situations, so if your are sensitive, or think this might make you reflect on your life…BEWARE.

Opinions are like BELLY BUTTONS (mine is original & cute)

Friends Don’t Let Friends…

Why do friends let each other go places looking any kind of way without advising them differently. Women act as if it’s a crime to express their opinion of their friends appearance. If a mere comment distorts a friendship, was it a true friendship, or a “familiarity” relationship?

Now I’m not talking about those eccentric fashionistas. Everyone is entitled to their own style, those BOHO chic, Punk Rocker, or even Urban wear dressed friends do what they do well. Those who dress in unflattering pieces for their body type should be advised otherwise. I LOVE to see people with different styles, expression or personality differences are what make us human, but some people just look like they don’t know any better. If advice is given and not heeded then you tried…they can never say they didn’t know.

He was on TvOne and had the nerve to be discussing someone else's fashion faux pas.

I’m no self proclaimed fashionista, but I am a true friend, and when shopping with a friend or getting dolled up for an event, I would hope they advise me on less flattering garments, as I would do the same. If however you are advised, but you like what you have on then DO It HONEY and do it well, but looks are just unacceptable.

Idea Execution

“There are a lot of ignorant people in this world”
As an adult I realize what my mother and aunt have been trying to get me to understand my whole life.

There are visionaries and there are executors. Some people have both talents. The best visionaries have no clue how to produce the end result. They have a wealth of creativity, and no knowledge of the steps of the process.

When working on a project, or working in a group there is usually one leader. Some instances several leaders emerge and can become a potential mess! (different blog post). When an idea is born, the brainstorming process is the most exciting. The initial excitement is what gets that ball rolling, but as it takes off, it begins to get complicated. This is when the visionaries who lack leadership skills should take a seat.
Do you have the right to get upset with someone who is leading the idea/project? Do your feelings about the project change? Do you recant your idea and pull out of the process? If you can not be proactive or productive with ideas and details needed to proceed with execution, then be open to input.

This post was inspired by the reality show R&B Divas LA. Singer Kelly Price brought forth the idea of the “Not Yo Mamalogues” to the rest of the cast of the show. For several episodes all the ladies did was discuss what was going to be done. There was no progression on producing a show. Cast mates Chante Moore and Lil Mo spoke with a director and got the ball rolling. When Kelly Price found out about this, she began to lash out at cast mates and the newly hired director. She blamed it on lack of trust, but I believe because she wasn’t driving this project (due to her “busy” schedule) she had a problem. She pulled out of the show, and created unnecessary drama, all because she didn’t take leadership in her vision.

A visionary without leadership skills often times gets frustrated or upset because the leader begins to take charge. The visionary begins to feel as if their idea is being stolen and changed into something different than that which was initially agreed upon. Allow the leader to lead, bring forth the idea, and trust your team to execute said idea. People get hired for these types of things. If you don’t have the ability to execute move over and let someone else drive. If you could do it, it’d get done.

Leadership is as much of a gift or talent as creativity.

Unapologetic

Love me or Hate me

Love me or Hate me

I blog for 3 reasons:
1: Emotional outlet: Blogging is a way for me to express the way I feel about something. Someone may not want to hear what I have to say, or may not have time to listen…I write it, send it out into cyber world and if its read great, if not cool, I accomplished my emotional expression goal!
2: Building a following: I blog to try to build a following of readers prior to publishing my book, just for simple feedback on me as a writer, to see if someone actually cares to read what I have to say. I want to see the response I get from the world
3: 1st Amendment: I have something to say either about world events or personal experiences.

If you don’t like what I have to say, don’t read it! I’m ok with critics on my work, I’m ok with debating over my opinion. Just be sure you can handle my counter rebuttal and I’ll try to do the sam. If you don’t like my response to your response, keep your opinions to yourself, or BLOG ABOUT IT!

Stop the Charades

Okay, we all know the type- small man, beefed up chest, deep baritone voice, speaks with the latest hip-hop jargon, no one ever knows what the hell he’s talking about.  I want to badly refer to these type as “lame ass niggas”, but I’ll use it this once, and refrain from it for the rest of the post.  Is it that necessary to fit in? And if you have to do all of that, do you truly want to fit in?  I never understood those who felt portraying someone else was being themselves.  My crew prefers the real you.

So this guy, bred from the suburbs, a neighborhood where the only chicken joint is Zaxby’s and Chick-Fil-a, beefs his chest out, deepens his voice, and says stupid shit that has nothing to do with anything.  Blastin’ off curse words because he has limited vocabulary, reciting whole verses in rap songs to prove his masculinity.  REALLY???!!!

Any dude applying lip balm more than his female counterpart is not a street dude.  Examining your skin for dry areas after leaving the swimming pool, Inspecting your snap back hat for dirt, grime, specks of lint,-not a street dude.  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with caring about your appearance, taking pride in your looks, keeping your shit looking nice, but come on now…you act like a BITCH!

I just had to get that off of my chest, it was bothering me!

Just a lil bit of The TRUTH!!!

 

Why perpetrate my friend?
