No Pain No Gain!



Everything we go through in life God has a purpose behind it. He uses circumstances to develop our character. No one is immune to pain or insulated from suffering, and no one gets to ride through life problem/pain free. Infact, if you think about it...life is a series of problems. Everytime you solve one, another is waiting to take its palce. Not all of them are big, but all are significant in your growth process. Many of our problems stem from making bad choices. We have the innate ability as humans to make good or bad choices for ourselves. No matter how great you think you are... sometimes, we inevitably fail at making good choices at some point in our lives. I believe God uses these mistakes in bad judgement to bring you closer to him. It is during suffering that we learn to pray our most authentic, heartfelt, honest to God prayers. When you are in pain, you really don't have time for the Amen corner or the energy to waste on superficial prayers. We need to recognize that temptation simply provides choice. We think temptation lies around us, but it really begins within us. If you didn't have the internal desire, the temptation could not attract you. Temptation always starts in your mind, not in circumstances. Many of us thrive on attention. We need to be desired, loved, valued or to feel pleasure. In order to move forward, you literally need to take a good hard look at yourself. Take responsiblity for your choices. Most importantly, open your heart to others who have your genuine best interest at heart. This is not a time to give up..... It's a time to GROW UP!

It's just a movie people!!!


One of the best movies I have ever seen next to E.T and the Titanic was "AVATAR". The movie's special effects and story line were both exciting and engaging. I sat there not even caring that I'd been sitting for almost three hours straight. In all honesty... when the movie ended I still wanted more. It was a Great movie!

So, this leads me to this story that I read about fans of the movie who say that the movie made them depressed because they don't live in a utopian world.


CNN reports that there have been more than 1,000 posts on the "Ways to cope with depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible" forum on a fan site. What the hell? I have to laugh at this because some people are just plain crazy. LOL

It is my opinion that there was an inbalance in place before they even saw the movie. Maybe, along with popcorn, soda and candy....concession stands should also serve PROZAC!

I remember when I was little, people would do this game called dungeons and dragons. It started as a movie but then became some kind of freaky cult game. Where people actually believed they were the characters in the film. I would not be surprised if AVATOR accrued a massive cult following as well. Movies are made for pure entertainment purposes only. Maybe, they should include a warning label on the previews...may cause you to laugh, cry, think, or feel something. Not recommended for people who are already in jeopardy of going off the deep end. Just a thought.

What do you think? Are people going to far? Comments are welcome!

This is a Public Service Announcement


Men: DON'T CHEAT!
Wow..was this really worth it. He had a beautiful wife at home and four children. He had a successful career in a sport that he loved. But, that wasn't enough...he had to also have a 20 year old woman on the side. Bottom line is unless you have done an extensive criminal back ground check, a full clinical psychological evaluation, and a complete blood work up on this person that you are willing to risk your life for....then maybe you should reconsider the what if's. What if I get caught? Do I really want my marriage to be over? What if she infects me with something? How am I going to tell my wife? What if she tells my wife? If my wife leaves me do I really want to be with this other woman? What if She IS CRAZY????? Hello..this should be the first question you need to ask yourself? What if she harms me, my wife or my kids? Yeah, if she's crazy she just might.
Women: THEY NEVER LEAVE THEIR WIVES!
How many times have we heard this scenario. Man sees woman at a bar. Man is good looking. Man is married. Woman is young. Woman is intrigued. Man flirts with woman. Woman flirts back. Woman knows man is married. Woman sleeps with him anyway. Man promises woman he'll leave his wife. Woman believes man. Man never leaves his wife. Woman fucks up her life.
Married men never leave their wives unless their wife finds out and makes their asses leave!
Why entertain the idea. Do you think so little of yourself that you are willing to share a man? You get to be his beck and CALL GIRL. You get to spend all of your holidays alone knowing that he is somewhere enjoying the holidays with his wife and kids. You get to hide and sneak around in the shadows of restaurants and hotel rooms. While his wife is proudly paraded in public. Yeah, he takes you on trips and buys you nice things. Every now and then he may throw cash your way. But at the end of the day you are just his little piece on the side. His wife really holds the cards. All you get to hold is his d!ck.

What is wrong with this picture?


Did Barnes and Noble mean for this to be a joke?
I missed the ha..ha..moment. I guess you would literally have to be a MORON to get it.
What do you think?

IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE!


This is a letter to the Editor of the New York Post who printed this offensive illustration.
Dear Editor:I'm trying to understand what possible motivation you may have had for publishing that vile cartoon depicting the shooting of the chimpanzee that went crazy. I guess you thought it would be funny to suggest that whomever was responsible for writing the Economic Recovery legislation must have the intelligence and judgment of a deranged, violent chimpanzee, and should be shot to protect the larger community. Really? Did it occur to you that this suggestion would imply a connection between President Barack Obama and the deranged chimpanzee? Did it occur to you that our President has been receiving death threats since early in his candidacy? Did it occur to you that blacks have historically been compared to various apes as a way of racist insult and mockery? Did you intend to invoke these painful themes when you printed the cartoon? If that's not what you intended, then it was stupid and willfully ignorant of you not to connect these easily connectable dots. If it is what you intended, then you obviously wanted to be grossly provocative, racist and offensive to the sensibilities of most reasonable Americans. Either way, you should not have printed this cartoon, and the fact that you did is truly reprehensible. I can't imagine what possible justification you have for this. I've read your lame statement in response to the outrage you provoked. Shame on you for dodging the real issue and then using the letter as an opportunity to attack Rev. Sharpton. This is not about Rev. Sharpton. It's about the cartoon being blatantly racist and offensive.I believe in freedom of speech, and you have every right to print what you want. But freedom of speech still comes with responsibilities and consequences. You are responsible for printing this cartoon, and I hope you experience some real consequences for it. I'm personally boycotting your paper and won't do any interviews with any of your reporters, and I encourage all of my colleagues in the entertainment business to do so as well. I implore your advertisers to seriously reconsider their business relationships with you as well.You should print an apology in your paper acknowledging that this cartoon was ignorant, offensive and racist and should not have been printed.I'm well aware of our country's history of racism and violence, but I truly believe we are better than this filth. As we attempt to rise above our difficult past and look toward a better future, we don't need the New York Post to resurrect the images of Jim Crow to deride the new administration and put black folks in our place. Please feel free to criticize and honestly evaluate our new President, but do so without the incendiary images and rhetoric.Sincerely,John Legend
John Legend spoke his piece...what do you have to say about it? The blog is now open.

NO MORE EXCUSES!


Some of us don't recognize our potential. We live a life of "I can'ts" and "But I don't have's" and "I don't know how to's". We allow our fear of the unknown paralyze us from even trying.
Certainly, there are some things we just can't do, but we shouldn't dwell on our limitations. We need to concentrate on the gifts and abilities we do have. Look at Barack Obama. If this man let the fear of the unknown paralyze him he would never have had the courage to run for the highest office. There has NEVER been a Black President of the United States. I'm sure he had people snickering behind his back; waiting for the rug to be pulled out from under him.( Yeah..this N*&&er has some nerve thinking he could ever become President of the United States...blah..blah..blah..) He didn't let them stop him. He stepped out on faith, stayed focused and changed the minds of millions of people everywhere. He believed he was the right man for the job. Most importantly, he made us believe it too. God gave him the gift to lead, to empower, and to inspire others. His campaign slogan "Yes We Can" swept over our nation like rain during a drought and empowered us all to believe that we matter..we ALL can make a difference. Thanks to President Barack Obama "You can be anything you want to be if you put your mind to it" is no longer a catchy buzz phrase used to motivate some and to alienate others but a true statement for us all. We all have a responsibility to follow his lead. We owe it to ourselves to put our gifts to work! Think about this... If you could choose whatever you wanted to do for a living, what would you do? Why aren't you doing it? Don't let fear paralyze you from finding your true potential!
