This Week Ahead 

Don’t surrender to the situation. Don’t throw your hands in the air just stay focused! Whatever dilemma you face is a temporary one. It will go away. It won’t last forever. It’s only a battle, not a war. You can overcome it no matter what only if you will not quit. 

Also think  of your attitude as a powerful force that attracts different kinds of people into your life. 

A negative attitude will attract the wrong people, and a positive attitude will attract the right people. So if you just can’t seem to catch a break, or nobody wants to invest in you, or nobody wants to hire you, or nobody wants to collaborate with you, just keep in mind of your vibes you may or may not be giving off. Maybe a little adjustment of your attitude will unlock your full potentials, and awaken the gifts that has been placed in you from the day you were born.

If I fall, I will stand back up, I will try again, I don’t quit! I will not give up!!!

When Luv Turns to Hate

BlackandBlewish

As many of you know, I’ve been a super-fan, promoter and cheerleader for the blogger-turned-author and influencer, Luvvie Ajayi ,aka Awesomely Luvvie, who rose to great fame and popularity doing ROFL recaps of “Scandal.” She built that into a golden platform, nabbed a book deal that shot to a #1 New York Times bestseller and has been picked up by “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes for a TV series.

All through this process, I’ve gleefully shared Luvvie’s posts, witticisms and news of her awesome ascension to the big time. All of which led me to this, a post I really wish I didn’t have to write.

Last night, Luvvie shared a FB post that was not only far less coherent and eloquent than her normal style, but overflowing with passive-aggressive hateration towards quasi-identified but unnamed Black and Mixed-race activists. Here’s her post:

Being Kind Is Free

We never know what someone’s mental state is or what they are going through. I try damn hard to encourage people even when I’m not to sure myself. Remember people will forget your words but never how you made them feel. As much hate that’s in this world from others try to let your words flow of positivity. 

When I tell someone hey boo… GM beautiful/ gorgeous, anything for you baby cakes….. It’s not to be funny it’s because I want you to feel special. It’s so many people suffering with depression, anger, hurt or just confusion that your simple word/sentences would make their day. It doesn’t cost a dime for you to be kind. 
Let’s learn to lift each other up versa tearing others down.

Missing Black Girls

We all have heard about the missing girls in D.C. I have heard and read so many things surrounding the disappearances that has made me sick to my stomach and angry. This is my hometown and pray for my family that is still there and the families of the missing girls. 

I read a comment that pissed me off coming from a black woman that was so insensitive to the families, yeah cops in our communities are most likely not trusted, but I see nothing wrong with the families wanting help from law enforcement to find their missing loved one’s. 

If you have to be a harsh critic when kids are missing in the black community then be quiet don’t say nothing. You never know if these families are on social media and to read harsh comments from a black person it hurts them. Remember if these we’re family members missing you will contact whoever to help locate them. 

“Have a little tact”
