Every 15 seconds a woman is beaten by her husband or boyfriend. (FBI Uniform Crime Report, 1991)

Listen, I'm going to start throwing some advice out there to young people all over the world. Now I say this is for young people because after a certain age we should know what we are trying to express and understand the consequences of our expressions a little more; at least we should. Now I'm going to tag a few people so they know I'm speaking to them specifically. Sorry, but the message needs to be sent. Tag whoever you know needs to read it as well. So please listen, like, hate, criticize, or delete me if you want afterwards, I really don't care because this needs to be said.

There are so many social networks out there that are cool because they allow people to express themselves in multiple ways. People express themselves through pictures, poetry, songs, notes, videos, likes and dislikes, tweets, diggs, +1's, and so on and so forth. Now I'm no one to judge what's the right or wrong way to express oneself, however certain things you express can give a perception of you that you may or may not want people to perceive. 

The first perception that I must bring up is for the young ladies. All women, yes, all women, are beautiful in their own way, and in more than one way as well. And as women grow they start understanding what guys start to notice about them. And because our world does not do much to build self-esteem in our female race, too many of our young ladies find confidence in showing off something that develops on them that does not develop on males. I am obviously speaking about the female breasts. Now there is nothing wrong with accepting your gifts and being proud of what your mamma gave you because you should be happy with what you have been blessed with. The issue begins with how you start to use or display them. For example, if you look at your posted pictures of yourself and 90% of them display cleavage, what do you think the perception is? Or if you look at your pictures and the one that people "like" the most is also the most revealing picture, what do you think people are thinking about? And this could translate to when you are having a conversation with a guy and he forgets where your eyes are, why do you think that is? Or when your buddies in school always want to hug you or grab you, and it seems a little extended, why do you think that happens? There are obviously multiple reasons, but notice this... are they giving the girl that's not as blessed as you, or who do not reveal so much, the same attention and long hugs? Hmmmm what I'm saying is that guys tend to think that girls who like to show it off are quite possibly the same girls that like to give it up. Guys see a girl who likes to semi-reveal herself in pictures, and think it would only be a matter of time before they reveal themselves to him. A few kind words, a movie, maybe a nice little gift and she should let me... Yeah, that's the perception. 

So ladies when you continue to get your heart broken frequently because he was tired of waiting for something he thought you were going to give up easily, or you are disappointed often by your buddies that don't just want to be buddies, or if girls are calling you a hoe or a ratchet or whatever, then maybe it's time to change your perception of yourself. 

Young ladies, you all have beautiful brains that you can show off. Let people know your thoughts, show them your interests, your intelligence, your curiosity and all the cool things you can imagine up. 

It is truly a beautiful thing when you realize you have a great lady with a great personality to share your life experiences with. 

And your brains are not in your breasts, so stop showing EVERY PERSON on your profile in EVERY PICTURE something that should be reserved for that one person, some day. Yes ladies you are beautiful, desirable and lovely in many ways, physically, but please start showing off your individuality instead of your sexuality all over the place. 

Just some, well a lot, of words and thoughts on perception... There's more to come... I've only just begun. As always... BeTheBest

P.S. Pretty girls that pretend to be provocative have oftentimes been raped and even killed... And so many look at them like it's the girls that brought on that type of attention for those horrific acts to occur. Please don't be the next victim. It's not worth it. 

  • 1 in 4 college women have either been raped or suffered attempted rape.
  • 1 out of 4 women is sexually assaulted at some point in her life.
These are true facts... check it...

So much to this... I've got speak on this

I can see it in your eyes: you're angry
Regret got shit on what you're feeling now. Mad cause he ain't like me. Oh You mad cause nobody ever did it like me

All the care I would take, all the love that we made
Now you're trying to find somebody to replace what I gave to you
It's a shame you didn't keep it;
Alicia, Katia I know that you gon hear this
I'm the man Yeah I said it! Bitch I'm the man Don't you forget it
The way you walk, that's me The way you talk, that's me The way you've got your hair up: did you forget that's me? And the voice in the speaker right now: that's me, that's me And the voice in the mirror: that's me
Can't you see that I made it? Yeah I made it First I made you who you are, and then I made it
And you're wasted with your ladies Yeah I'm the reason why you always getting faded
Take a shot for me

Ok look: I'm honest Girl I can't lie: I miss you
You and the music were the only things that I commit to
I never cheated, for the record, back when I was with you
But you believe in everything but me girl, I don't get you
She says I know you changed, I never see you Cause you're always busy doing things I really wish she had a different way of viewing things I think the city that we're from just kinda ruined things It's such a small place: not much to do but talk and listen The men are jealous and the women all in competition And now your friends telling you stories that you often misinterpret And taint all of your images of yo "Mr. Perfect"
I could tell that you been crying all night, drinking all summer Praying for your happiness, hope that you recover, ugh...
This is one I know you hated when you heard it And it's worse because you know that I deserve it...

Take a shot for me

May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
Angels protect you,
And heaven accept you...

Live Free* hmmm

Do You Live Free? Uh sure you do.

That's one of those statements or phrases or quotes or tattoos people get to feel they are living their lives to the fullest. It's sad really because those two little words are very meaningful but no way near fully understood.

Do we Live Free when we wake up in the morning to go to work, being there at a certain time to clock in, go to lunch when we are allowed to, follow certain protocols and procedures, and then only leave work with permission?

Do we Live Free when we are following the ways of Martin Luther, Joseph Smith, Louis Farrakhan, the Pope, John the Baptist, Allah, Buddha, Reverend Jenkins, Pastor Smith, Bishop Nelson, or any other religious radical who says their way is the right way above all other ways?

(Whoa T! My bad folks)

Do we Live Free when we go to McDonald's to order a burger that has onions or pickles or mustard or anything on it that we don't want, but don't let them know we don't want that? Is it living free to go to any restaurant, order food, receive the food, and then realize the food is not exactly to your liking, but settle for it? It doesn't matter what's wrong with it... undercooked, overcooked, too much salt, too much seasoning, too spicy, or just the fact that you don't like how it tastes at all; would you really just say whatever, pay, even tip and keep your mouth closed? Is that what people do when they Live Free?

Do we Live Free when live by the laws and rules of our government? Where we can't steal what we want. We can't kill who we want. People can't drink when ever, where ever or how much ever they want. When smoking marijuana is illegal only because it can't be taxed and regulated? Does living free mean to have your every action governed and controlled by a system run by rich people that do not have the daily struggles we do, nor receives the repercussions or the consequences or the treatment we receive for breaking their laws?

Do we Live Free with manipulation, persuasion or mind control... Huh you say... No I'm not speaking of any X-men's Professor X telepathic stuff. I'm speaking of those times when your mind is made up, you are so sure about your ideas and confident about your decision until someone comes around and breaks all your confidence, shatters your hopes and discredits your decisions. I'm speaking of the times when you know yourself, know your feelings and know what you want until these certain people come around and persuade you into a completely different mind set. Or how about those days when you know what makes you happy because you feel in your heart, you know it in your soul and you think about it all day because it makes you feel so good, until you hear from that person or those people that find ways to sneak thoughts into your head that cause confusion and uncertainty. And they mess with your head because they know that they cannot change the undeniable feeling that your heart and soul possess. These people aren't strangers, but they are people who actually know you fairly well. The thing is if they were happy in their own lives then they would spread happiness and good vibes. However, when there is something in their life that isn't going very well and they lose control of it, then they begin to look elsewhere for things to control. Now their intentions are not bad and their advice is not always wrong,'s absolutely not always right. There are many reasons why they aren't right though, but the number one reason is because they are not in the situation of the person they are trying to control. They don't understand the emotion involved. They don't feel that certain feeling that is undeniable and unmistakable which in turn makes it unforgettable. They don't have the concern, the love, the happiness, the involvement, and time invested like you do. They see the scenario and look for the quick fix, without appreciating the delicacy of the situation and the circumstances involved. When this person begins to assess your life and attempts to advise you on your relationship or career decision or child care techniques or any part of your life without a full admiration of the whole situation, then their advice becomes disrespectful. When you are considerate and listen to their advice and give gratitude, a real friend who truly cares for you will stop there with their advice and be happy that you listened. Those who want you to take their advice and do what they want may get upset and that's when the attempt to persuade comes along, and things are said to begin the manipulation which in turn turns into control. This state of control happens when you care so much about the person who's giving you their "advice" and thinking they wouldn't ever steer you wrong, you think their advice is sound. Their advice is usually not intended to be bad, but oftentimes it's very misguided. For example, if someone is happy in their relationship and there becomes a bad incident, a good friend will support and reassure that the incident is probably isolated and that things will be alright. A good friend becomes a controlling friend when the bad situation arises and they exploit it. They will exaggerate the incident, bring up different things to worsen it and also give you quick solutions to be vindictive or strike back; instead of helping you ease the pain, they want you to become enraged. Of course, they will use words like, "I know what you mean" or "I feel your pain" because that soothes the soul.

(Okay, WOW, I'm going off and getting personal, I'm sorry. I've been coming back and forth to this part and I think I need to put it to rest. I've been on this portion of the Live Free life for a bit now and I think it's time I sum it up and come to a conclusion.)

Okay, the people who are happy in their own lives and love you and care for you for who you are will always want you happy and therefore will always encourage positive thoughts to you to enhance your life's experiences. All the while, helping you through rough patches in your life to maintain your happiness.

The people who struggle with happiness in their lives, but love you and care for you very much will lack the pure ability to encourage happiness and will regularly look to stir up uneasy feelings and add drama to any of life's incidents. It's not a lack of love for you that causes this. However it is the subconsciousness of "misery loves company" perspective. You don't need them bringing you down. So ignore their thoughts and move on to the next conversation, or put them in their place and let them know that they can be on your team, (happy and encouraging), or get on like they've been shit on; because they are not helping no matter how much they think they are.

Now to answer the questions above... Do we Live Free when... and the answers are all yes, but with limitations because we as a group and as individuals make the CHOICES to live this way. We do it for protection, we do it for morals, we do it because we're are scared to change so we follow others, we do it because it's safe and we do it because why would someone who loves us lead us astray. So I believe people Live Free, but most Live Free with limitations. And there's nothing wrong with that because we can't control everything in life. However, we always have a choice. ALWAYS!!! And we cannot give up that privilege and we must use it responsibly for our sanity and happiness. We also have to remember there are consequences for our choices, good and bad ones,and we cannot let that hold us back from living our life to the fullest so that we can truly Live Free...without limitations.

"Always remember, if you are happy, I'm happy for you and with you. But when happiness escapes you, I will be there to get you back on track; not put you on a different path." -M.U.

Five simple, but essential...

A fascinating friend of mine recently said, "Sometimes I wish I could run away from everything."

I followed her comment with, "Everything, Everything?"

She said, "Yeah just wanna run until my feet give out, hard to explain..."

Then I said, "I could think of five things you wouldn't ever want to run from..."

And after she said, "start naming"

This is what I said...

Okay, these are in no particular order, but here goes..... Your health and beauty, I really don't think you wanna runaway from being so blessed in those areas. You already know beautiful people with beautiful personalities get better treatment in life. (Secondly) Your family support, maybe not always, but could you imagine if you were an orphan that never knew who any of their family was? Third, your friends that absolutely adore you. We all have haters, but could you imagine having everyone hating on you and trying to get back at you? That would suck. (Fourth) How about, would you really wanna runaway from the freedom to make your own choices? Would you want your life handed to you and you would basically live a robotic predetermined life without the freedom of variety? And last but not least, would you want to runaway from the incredible feeling of true love... How can anyone justify the idea of living happily without something that completes you with the unison of mind, body (heart), and soul.

Now this literally took minutes for me to come up with and I really don't know why I even said "five" things in the first place. However as I look back on the list, I like what I said, no regrets or take-backs, but I could definitely elaborate on all them. But... I think it's best if I keep it short; for y'all's sake. I'm just glad I'm writing again.

Thank you... You know who.

Til next time peeps.

P.s. Don't forget to comment or complain... Either is all good.

Gotta start off fresh....

Well, here it is... the day has come. That very first working day of the year. There are new resolutions, new promises, and new trials and tribulations to experience too. I have a few to do, a few more to keep and even more to endure. My life has been pretty open to some, but not to any"one" collectively. Encoded, encrypted, and enclosed, I shall somewhat remain to protect others from... hmmm, I'll save that for another day. I shall remain honest to others, humble in life, humane in my career and hungry in my determination to WIN, WIN, WIN. WIN what, you ask? Each and every situation that prohibits me from reaching the top, limits my lap of luxury, or obstructs my optimal goal.

I am expecting a lot of new things in MMXI. New opportunities, new struggles, new relationships, new love, new losses, new realizations, and many new exploits and encounters. However, I absolutely do not expect anything to fall into my lap; even though that $ 292 million lottery would fall into my lap quite nicely right now. But one cannot win if one does not play, right? And such is life, expecting good things to happen when there aren't substantial energies put toward achievement exemplifies an attitude of entitlement that will yield poor results every time. So if you want that job, do any and everything above and beyond to attain it. If you want that woman, then go get her with the right words, right gestures, don't play no games and go for it. Would you rather she say "No"or never know that she could have been your soulmate? So Go For It! And those of you out there who have a pessimistic outlook on life, three words... GET A LIFE! I'm serious because it's obvious you don't like yours, so it's time to move on and renew yourself. I, like a few of your friends are always here to listen, but you know a change is needed because the same sorrow you bring each and every time is a result of you not learning. You are making the same mistakes and your life will continue to be what you are unhappy with until you learn and understand. Stop being a "slave to your own shit"... go get your happiness and stop settling for less! Anything worth it, won't come easy. So essentially if I wanna win the lottery of life, then I must buy a ticket... That goes for you too.

Muchluv2yall... I'm back!!!!!
