She wrote on her FB page today: The older I get, the less I care about who likes me and who don’t. I’m almost certain I don’t have as many “FRIENDS” as I thought and I’m perfectly fine with being the outcast. I never blended well with regular ppl anyways..just don’t be fake with it.. anywho back to bed I go! Have a good day ppl (p.s. Plz utilize the unfriend button so I can add new ppl I’m at capacity) 😑 thank you
I’m so happy she finally got it!!! When I first met this young lady at my old job…. it was something about her. I told her… you are a LEADER… you have the POWER to change things, and lead people. As I looked at the “puzzled” look on her face… I knew she wasn’t getting it. She even admitted that she felt there was nothing special about her. That was just fine with me, because I knew one day she would get it. I see her growth with each stat she post…… she is discovering sooner than later what I told her. I’m so proud of where she is in her life today, and I’m going to enjoy seeing her grow to the FULL BLOWN FLOWER God wants her to be.
BE BLESSED PEOPLE!
Every time I think about being back home in Detroit from Atlanta…. I’m reminded of all the things that I’ve helped out with concerning my family, that I wonder how things would have turned out, had I not been here. I must say, since God said so first…”I am exactly where I’m suppose to be”. I love Atlanta, and I wouldn’t mind having my own apartment there, but for now…. Downtown Detroit is home for me… and after 2 years…. I’m finally okay with that.
I’ve lost a total of 20 pounds!!! Yes! Walking Mon-Fri has really helped me to come down. The part that makes me happy is that whenever I hang with family and over eat, I know how to get back in the ring and get it off. I know how to eat, and I pay attention to my body. Its a challenge to me to reach a goal. I still have a long ways to go, but its challenging getting there…which is not so bad.
I’ve been hanging with my Sisters this past week. I love them so much. I want to put together a gathering for Sisters Only. But if you’re an only child and have a good friend who you call a Sister, that would be just fine to attend. I found out that when you get along well with the Siblings you grew up in the home with everyday , that you’re likely to get along with other women easily. For me…. I will never ever engage into a disagreement or anything physically with another woman… my thought is this…. if I don’t fight or fall out with THE SISTERS I LIVED IN THE HOUSE WITH EVERYDAY AS KIDS… why would I give negative energy and time into women outside of them? To me…. that’s equivalent to SUICIDE. Now that’s my thought on it. I’m so happy that it doesn’t have to be that way, because I have great friendships, and I LOVE all of my friends dearly.
In putting together “Sisters Only”… I want to teach women that its okay to have debates and arguments with your sisters because of difference of opinion. I’ve learned that my sisters and I have debates a lot because we ARE DIFFERENT. But our LOVE for each other is so strong, that debates and opinions HAS NEVER OUTWEIGHED that day and time of being together. Its not important to carry the difference of opinion into the next day, or month. For us, its not about being “right”.. its only about being able to express how we each feel. Lets be real…. we all feel like we’re right. After we debated it out and it dies down… we laugh, talk about who was the loudest, who had the best point and then its over. I think Sisters Only will help sisters to understand each other better. That is okay… that you’re not on the same page all the time.
I just had to post the above photo. I remember my momma giving us that eye. LOL We use to be scared… we knew if we didn’t stop what we were doing bad, it was on and poppin. Hehehehe
Just finished watching online Mystery Millionaire ” The Art of Deception” the last episode for season 1, because I was not home when it aired. This one made me cry.
I’m just like the best friend of the gurl who dated the millionaire… I’ll google you in a New York minute…. especially if I sense something off. God gave women great intuition, and sometimes if we don’t act on it, we’ll miss a lot of things that come our way. It made me cry because the gurl fell in love with the “Character” he portrayed on the show. She never got a chance to know the person he really is , because he cheated her out of that, by thinking it was wise getting to know the real person she was by lying about who he is. When came time to reveal to her that he’s a millionaire she wasn’t feeling him….. BECAUSE SHE FELT SHE DID NOT KNOW HIM.
LYING… turns off a REAL WOMAN. We feel that if we’re showing you our real face, then you should show yours too. So now she has to scramble in her mind different thoughts, she has to ask herself can she deal with his life style, will they be able to meet as often as HE MADE HIMSELF AVAILABLE on the show. There are so many things a woman in her shoes has to ask herself . If you can’t meet a woman who will love you for you, just because she already knows who you are, then keep trying….. JUST LIKE THE REST OF US. Hell, you’re not special just because you’re rich, you must search, look and find just like everybody else. It really pisses me off that these Millionaires feel that LOVE is suppose to come easy, so they become “Characters” to see who really are for them.
Kick rocks in your favorite pair of Nikes, and blow bubbles at the same time.
Yall know I always have a story to tell. LOL Sometimes I feel that words are on my forehead saying… I’m a writer come talk to me and give me a great story to share with my bloggers. LOL
As I was sitting along the beautiful River Walk on the Detroit River a few days ago, this guy who was running decided to come and sit by me to get to know me better. I promise being a Christian is hard work… people mistaken that sweet peaceful calm Spirit as an opportunity to “get over” on you. That bothers me a lot, because I feel that I have to “go there” with people… when really it shouldn’t even be that way. I told him my name was Lisa… and I’m so glad I did. It was something about him, that I knew if I listen more than 15 minutes… it would show me who he was.. AND IT DID.
He told me that he was carrying around his “credentials” in this album because he was trying to gain employment and eventually move to Canada. That was a “clue” to who he was… and I’m calling it Clue # 1. When I asked him where he stayed, he said he stay with a “room mate” ((a guy)) that he met at Starbucks after he and his gurlfriend broke up and didn’t have a place to go. That was Clue #2. That told me that he was sorta like a “drifter” a person who tries to get in where he fit in. Any sign of an opportunity to get ahead at YOUR expense he will. It told me that he was purposely looking for people to meet. He had some shades…. and anytime he wanted to know about me, the shades were off, but when it came down to him sharing his story, he put them on. Clue #3. When he told me that he was 28… I was the happiest person on that day… it gave me an opportunity to “wrap up” the conversation and for him to BEAT IT. Told him, my daughter was 28 * she’ll be Sep 3* and that I had nothing in common with men HER age. Instead of him exiting from my “straight to the point, direct eye contact, bass in my voice, turned my head and made no eye contact with him after wards”, he still didn’t leave. So, I said to myself okay….. he’s up to something.
As I watched my phone because I had to be someplace at a certain time, he kept making small talk. When he told me how close he stayed and the landmark near it… he said it the WRONG WAY. He said that he stayed near Belle Isle. Clue # 4. If you grew up and was raised in Detroit.. you pronounce it like this…. *Bell Owl*… AND NO OTHER WAY. LOL LOL I knew that doe doe bird was from another city. I went right in after he said it wrong……. “Where are you from”? LOL He looked at me as if I was the smartest woman HE HAD EVER MET IN HIS LIFE. LOL And said Houston. After about an hour.. he was still sitting there. I didn’t say a word.. I enjoyed the silence.
Just then a couple came and sat on the bench next to ours (((LOL after all those that were there)))… oooweeee.. why they do that? This guy was SOOOO irritated about that. I heard God loud and clear when he said…. you see that? I said yesss Lord…. I’m paying attention. Clue # 5. Just then God said…. he’s going to ask you to take him home. I kept saying to God, I knew this guy is up to no good. I sat there mentally preparing his VERBAL DEATH. I looked at my phone and it said…. 5:04… I said… OH WELL… LET ME GO. He said.. oooo ummmm umm oooooouumm which way are you going? I smiled in my mind because he was fulfilling just what God told me. I pointed in the direction of where I was going. He said.. do you mind if you can drop me off. I LOOKED AT HIM… I said.. I, WILL NEVER—— EVER—— IN MY LIFE—— let a stranger get in the car of my personal space. I said I don’t know you. Told him, my daughter would have a fit if she THOUGHT I took a stranger home. He made me so heated, I said I wouldn’t even let a stranger WALK ME TO MY CAR. Then he said… no.. I’m not like that, here are my “credentials” right here,* showing me his album of his ID and important papers. I said I DON’T WANT TO SEE THAT.. DON’T MATTER WHO YOU ARE, I’M NOT TAKING YOU ANYWHERE. I made it PERSONAL.. Just then I jumped up REAL FAST… catching him off guard, told him I was leaving…… and left! He didn’t know which car was mines * lol*, it was actually parked directly behind where we were sitting. He wanted to know so badly which one it was. As I walked off…. I walked the whole circle to get to my car…. NO THIS CLOWN didn’t get out of his seat.. and started doing push ups on the side walk just to have full view of where I was walking. It was so funny watching him looking around for me, by the time he spotted me, I was popping the locks on the car. LOL
I know for a fact by the way he was irritated that couple sat near us, had they not came, he would have harassed me and tried to convince me that he was a good person. He got me messed up… I watch too many killer shows for me not to know the signs of my last days on earth….messing around with him. He’s looking for another person to link up with so that he can free load and create another opportunity for himself to advance. This VIRGO is way to smart for that. If people knew what I KNEW…. they would stop TODAY.
Let me say this. People will show you who they are be them FAKE OR GOOD PEOPLE…. just pay attention to the Spirit they usher in with them. The Spirit is like a fragrance of cologne or perfume. Pay attention people. Listen.. don’t be so quick to want a friendship, that you miss the person you’re befriending. Give them time, honey, they will show you all day the condiments they wear.
6 Signs of a Good Woman
All a man really wants is a good woman by his side. Men have just as hard of a time trying to find a good woman as women have trying to find a good man. Women have to kiss frogs in order to find a Prince and men have to wade through pools of women, who for the sake of the cleanliness of this article we will just say crazy women, worthless woman, b’s, h’s, gold diggers, and you fill in the blanks.
A good woman is comprised of much more than being a woman who keeps a clean house and puts a hot meal on the table.. Things like that are nice and pretty much a necessity depending on the relationship, but they are only the basics. Many women say they want a good man but have you asked yourself if you’re a good woman?
Here are a few traits of a good woman:
1.Encouraging/Supportive/Motivates – A good woman isn’t quiet with no input. She’s full of ideas to help improve your business, outlook in life and overall health. She supports her mans ideas and motivates him to accomplish his goals. A good woman is a good listener. Ultimately she is able to change you without trying. A good woman makes you a better man.
2.She Keeps Him Honest – A man is not allowed to be lazy when he’s in a relationship with a good woman. She makes him honest. If you tend to make excuses for why you can’t do something a good woman will call you out on your bs and make you shape up.
If you want a promotion, but claim to not be able to get one she will quickly let you know that in all honestly you’re not doing enough. A good woman will always encourage her man to make an honest living that he can be proud of. Most importantly she knows how to talk to him and tell him these things without being down on him.
3.King Him – Feeding your man grapes, strawberries and parading around in little enticing outfits is delightful, but what about providing him with some mental stimulation. A good woman not only speaks to the King in her man, but she also treats him as such. She sees potential in him. She treats you like he is the most capable and deserving man in the world, in addition to spoiling and catering to him in the most feminine way.
A good woman will often make a man feel like he’s the only man who exists in her eyes. There is power in a good woman who can push her man to new heights.. A good woman sees greatness in her King. She thinks he’s amazing and makes him feel as such. A good woman is so amazing that she will have a man feeling like Nas, when he made “If I Ruled The World.” She will have him feeling like anything is possible, like he could actually change the world.. Imagine that, or simply google Barack Obama.
4.SHE’S SECURE – A good woman is secure within herself and not easily jealous over other women. She’s not quick to put the next woman down just because she thinks the woman looks good and provides competition to her own looks. No man wants an insecure woman who is always messing up his business deals because she thinks he’s flirting with or having sexual relations with the women he works with.
5.STABILITY – Women often look for stability in a man. What they don’t know is that it’s their characteristics as a woman that cause a man to become stable. Most relationships are temporary, you actually know they will expire any minute.
She makes him think about a future with her.
A good woman will make you think of your goals and plans and make sure they are in alignment with what you want out of life. If a woman wants a stable man then she needs to be stable herself. That’s one of the top signs of a good woman.
6.ALLERGIC TO GOLD DIGGING – A good woman doesn’t require that you buy her expensive gifts in order to obtain or maintain her affection. She’s just as happy with sentimental gifts from a man as she would be with a gift of Louboutin shoes. It’s not all about money with her, it’s all about you and the man whom you are.
When a man finds a good woman that’s when those wedding bells start to ring.
