I just stumbled upon this short film and I think it's absolutely amazing!!! I had to wait about 20 mins before posting this because of crying. I can relate to the situation. I had a loved one gone for almost 2 years in the military not knowing if they would make it back safely or not? That person was my whole world and was all I ever wanted!
Unfortunately being away and going through such a traumatic time in life it grew us apart and messed up our relationship. At first there were other blames for it but ultimately it was that time apart and the differences in us both that occurred AFTER that time that strained and dissolved our relationship. It was definitely a gift and a curse.
No one will ever know what it's like in the life of an military man or woman until they actually experience what they go through. And nobody will truly understand what it's like for a parent, child, significant other, or family member of a military person goes through unless they;ve experienced it. Trust me, it's totally different from the outside looking in.
I would totally LOVE to see this short film turned into a full length movie. I think it would be absolutely awesome!! Kudos to Reagan Gomez-Preston

If there's something I didn't do right I am a woman that will own up to that mistake, learn from it, and try my hardest never to make it again. I am truly a person who does still value morals like honesty, respect, loyalty, and responsibility. Too many people get caught up in too many things and lose site of these values. No matter if they mean to or not.
We're living in this 'I want what I want when I want it' type of world and it has alot of people losing their minds, family, and friends. It truly is always a bad thing when relationships are lost over petty and unnecessary things.
Like people say, 'Those that are quick to point a finger at others need to realize there are always 4 fingers pointing back at you!'
Below is a video of my sis Miss.Stef addressing what I'm saying from her own perspective. Now granted this video blog was done over a year ago, the words that she is speaking is still quite relevant with today!! It's actually one of my favorite video blogs that she's done.
Hope you don't get mad I posted it sis!! Love you!!!
P.S. I love how cute and giggly she is in this video!!!! lol
Red lipstick is a universal classic and has yet to go out of style, according to the fashion magazines, yet many women assume they can't wear it. They're wrong. Here is showing you the right ways to wear it.
Rule No. 1: The secret lies in the rest of your face. The paler the skin, the bigger the pop. Go light on the eyes and the blush, otherwise you’ll risk looking like a clown (Cameron Diaz made this fatal mistake at the 2007 Golden Globes). Here’s how to do it: Skip eyeliner and go only for mascara (black for brunettes, brown for blondes and redheads), making sure to apply to bottom lashes (it opens up your eyes). Dust face with powder and cheeks with a soft blush.
Rule No. 2: Line inside of lips Red lipstick tends to bleed, so fill in lips with lip liner first, suggests makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff in the December 2006 issue of Harper's Bazaar.
Rule No. 3: Pick the right color If your complexion is pink, you'll look better in plum shades, while girls with yellow tones are flattered by warmer reds that have a brown base, according to celebrity makeup artist Jemma Kidd in the December 2005 issue of Harper's.
Rule No. 4: Don't let nails clash We prefer non-red nail polish when you're going red on the lips. A clear polish or light color is cool, and black polish is a trend that shows no sign of going away anytime soon. If you want to go red on the nails, make sure the color matches your lips. I strongly feel Essie makes the best nail polishes.
Rule No. 5: Blending is in Few makeup artists stick to one shade of any lipstick, they tend to blend a few to create the perfect colors. If you've bought a red lipstick shade that's too bright, dark or whatever, don't throw it away. Instead, experiment with other lipstick shades you have on hand to create the perfect shade of red.
Check out pages and pages of red lipstick from high-end brands like Chanel to the good-but-cheaper brands such as Revlon and Cover Girl (I am partial to M.A.C.)...
Success is not the triumph over regress,
Success is the power to suppress.
Success is not the money or the fame,
Success is, knowing you are still the same.
Success is not the power or the pride.
Success is the knowing how to hide.
Success is not a gift or gain,
Success is accepting and believing in your name.
Success is not a point or goal to seek,
Success is, believing you have never reached the peak.
This was a poem that really spoke to me. Right now there are a few personal and professional issues that I am currently faced with and there all to do with success and moving forward. When you are experiencing a new chapter in your life you should be happy excited and blessed. You shouldn't feel sad, mad, or like you owe an explanation.
When certain things happen in life they are truly for a reason. No matter what it is, be it a new Job, new friend, new car, new title, etc. You should never have to feel conflicted because you are given an opportunity over someone else. Bottom line is you were obviously doing the job you were suppose to be doing the correct way anyway in order to be considered for that next step right?
Unfortunately in life some people just can't accept the fact that there are people who are better qualified than them, more dependable, more trustworthy, and just an all around better candidate. It's like something I once heard in a Tyler Perry play and something my mom would always say, "When the Lord sees fit to start sending blessings your way, you will truly know who your friends are." Those words never rang as clear as they do now!!

Well this last year has been one bumpy, twister of a roller coaster and its just Oct. I've learned a lot thus far this year, experienced a lot this year, and I've also recovered a lot in my life that I thought I'd never see or feel again. A lot of people have come and gone in my life as well. Some who's been there for years and some that's been shorter than that.
Right now I feel I'm at a crossroads in life. I'm still young, not married, and no kids. I have a career I love and extra curricula activities that I'm involved in that keeps me more than busy. But I just don't feel complete. I don't feel satisfied with what I have. I pray every night and ask for guidance on this journey called life.
By no means am I complaining about the blessings I do have, but just feel like there could be more! Maybe its my "perfectionist" or "motivational" characteristics I'm not sure? All I know is I do see a bigger picture and I'm patient enough to wait for the lord to bestow upon me the blessings he feels I'm deserving of.
So how many of you feel like you at a crossroads in your life?
P.S. Immmmm baaaaaaaaacccckkkk!!
