When Will You Learn??

Isn't it funny how people who make the same mistakes over and over, end up in a crunchy situation, and can't figure out how they got there? After years of failed attempts to make their life better they sink deeper into despair and instead of taking responsibility for their actions, they blame everyone around them for their misery. Is that you?

Mr./Ms. "I can't pay my bills," "There ain't no good men/women out there," " My dad/mom wasn't around"...... Stop making excuses and WAKE UP!!

Don't let life pass you by because you fail to do what you need to do to change your situation. FIND A WAY, OR MAKE ONE. I come from a broken home, worked several jobs to make the bills and have experienced failed friendships and relationships but that hasn't stopped me from progressing.

Learn from your experiences. Every situation, whether good or bad, teaches us a lesson. It's up to YOU to take heed and learn from these lessons that will help you make healthy and wholesome decisions in life.

If you want different results...try something different. How many times must you fall into the same trap before you realize that YOU need to make a change? Stop making excuses about why you "can't do," what you "won't do" and just do it.

Change isn't always easy...and in most cases making the right decision is never easy. If your pockets are always tight, then maybe you need to evaluate your spending habits and expenses. Are you living outside of your means? If so, then cut your unnecessary luxuries. Don't try to keep up with the Jones's if you can't afford it.

If you can't seem to find love, then maybe you need to work on loving yourself, or re-evaluate the people you choose to love. Was every failed relationship in your past the "other" persons fault? If you answered "yes," then it's no surprise to me that you're single. This type of mentality is common among people who have a hard time learning from their experiences.

Instead of making yourself the victim, take a moment to reflect and evaluate your actions and how they contributed to your issues. Believe it or not, there's something you did or didn't do, that affected the outcome of your situation, and until you critically analyze yourself and what you can do or could have done better, you'll always find yourself confused and unhappy.

Do yourself a favor and learn from your mistakes. When you go against your better judgment you compromise your potential to live a happier and healthier life. Unless you enjoy complaining...don't do it. It's not attractive, positive and I'm sure your family and friends are tired of hearing it. Besides...the only person you really have to blame is yourself.

~~Let change inspire you to be a better person and to do great things beyond your imagination~~


Evelyn's Back In The League...

...almost, I guess. The latest news about Ms. "Basketball Wife" girlfriend, is that she's dating Cincinnati Bengal's wide receiver, Chad Ochcocinco. Although the two, pictured below, look like a cute item, I'm not feeling it one bit. Why am I hating? Because I don't like Evelyn. If she's not rocking the cradle, she's throwing back drinks and criticizing people like she's God's greatest gift. Besides, it bothers me when gold diggers snag a pretty decent dude. While Chad's VH1 reality show "The Ultimate Catch" is a joke, I'm happy to see that he didn't pick any of the Becky's on set.

Gossip from the streets, says Chad will be making a guest appearance on the second season of "Basketball Wives" along with the most hated...Gloria and Matt. Can't wait to see the drama unfold...stay tuned!!


BET Awards: Chris Brown MJ Tribute

Chris Brown danced and cried his heart out during his Michael Jackson tribute last night at the BET Awards. Many stood and cried with Chris as he broke down in tears during the last song of his performance, "Man in the Mirror." If there was any question as to when/if Chris would get a second chance to win back his fans....I think he did it with this performance...check it out!

50 Cent Movie Trailer: "Twelve"

Looks pretty good!


Van der Sloot Strikes Again

Remember Joran Van der Sloot? The man who was/is the person of interest in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, who went missing during a senior class trip to Aruba in May 2005? Well Van der Sloot is back in police custody for being the prime suspect for yet another murder, a 21 year-old Peruvian girl, Stephany Flores Ramirez. Details in the clip below:

Just three days after the fifth anniversary of Holloway’s disappearance, the body of 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez was discovered in a Lima Peru hotel room, on the avenue Miraflores district, Peruvian newspaper El Comercio reports. According to police reports, the girl was found half naked on the floor of their hotel room, brutally beaten and with a broken neck.

According to the Peruvian newspaper, the hotel room where Ramirez’s body was found was registered under van der Sloot’s name. Hotel employees also told police that they saw him with the girl over the weekend.


In recent news, Van der Sloot was found and detained in Chile, and transported back to Peru, where he has reportedly confessed to the crime. While his lawyer was not present during the confession, prosecutors move forward in processing formal charges against Van der Sloot. Reports state that there is no death penalty or life sentence in the Peruvian judicial system, so if convicted, Van der Sloot is expected to serve 15-35 years in jail.
