❤💜❤💜❤As a consumer of reality tv, specifically Love & HipHop, I find myself watching these two and wondering... What does my village have to do to help them learn to love all of those beautiful imperfections!?! To be happy with themselves, to exude confidence, to know bullsh*t when they see it, and to gravitate towards love. What will I say if they come to me and ask if they should get butt shots or inject fillers into their faces? Will I faint when their first date shows up at the door and he brings another girl with him on the date? Lawd.....As I rode to work solo this morning 🎶🎶 and I'm rapping along with Kardi B... 'f*ck him and get some money..' And then the male chorus "f*ck with me and get some money." 💲💲💲...then I get sick to the stomach when I imagine what this really actually means...and sicker when I imagine these two singing it...maybe its holiday season and I'm sensitive...

I've realized that life is all about perspective. As life changes and stressors pop up, its your perspective on those changes that ultimately defines the win! So when things seem impossible, know that they're not. When efforts seem pointless, know that they're not, when things seem hopeless, know that it's not. Lay down, get some rest, and keep getting up and keep showing up. Do it until your perspective shifts. ❤❤❤🌞🌞🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
