L-O-V-E....Do you know what that is????

A while ago, I was having a conversation about love to one of my friends and she asked me, strike that, told me love is subjective. I told her she is wrong. We went at it for about 30 minutes of her trying to make me agree with her on some level. I only agreed that people do have definitions of love. Not in concession of my viewpoint. I agreed only because I said a lot of people do not know what love is in its true definition which is why love is seen to be subjective. Love is clearly defined. I'm an unashamed Christian. The Bible clearly tells us what love is and what love isn't. Read 1Corinthians Chapter 13 if you don't believe me or 1 John Chapter 4 or Romans Chapter 13, There are clear definitions of what love is and what love isn't. Where is the subjectivity in those passages? There is none. I accredit people thinking love is subjective due to the fact they don't know true love. They haven't experienced true love. She the asked me should all people love the same? I said yes. If there is a clear definition of what love is, then essentially love should be the same all across the board. I shouldn't love you more and love someone else less. That is not love in its purity. Another thing people do when they read the definition of love is they make truths for themselves. Example. You ever gave someone advice and realize they only heard the part that favored them but missed the other half of the advice which was just as important? That is what I mean. A lot of people find different ways to make love subjective but truly it is not subjective. Love is what it is. Love isn't conditional or situational. Love is what it is and will remain that way. I don't write this to say people will never experience true love BUT just to clarify that it isn't something to be dissected into different deviations and truths....thank you for taking a looking into My Thoughts.....

Father's Day...Are they appreciated???

Yesterday was Father's Day. A good day. A day to be remembered. A day that should be really publicized. A day where fathers should be hailed as king of their thrones. Man...........that day came and went. I swear half of you forgot it was father's day too. I saw so many people scrounging for a card talking about "damn, I shouldn't get that nigga nothing. He just paid the bills." I wanted to slap the hell out that girl ( I don't hit women). That is the lack of respect fathers get nowadays. Nowadays, I feel, most fathers aren't celebrated the way they should be celebrated. I didn't hear WGCI auctioning off no Father's day brunch, no Father's day concerts, no Father's day anything!!! Why because a dad's role in the family is under appreciated in my opinion. You may not agree but it's true. Then so many want to shout on all the mothers playing dads on the radio. Look, I commend all mothers who have to take on dual roles. I think it's an amazing thing to do. That's just messed up you won't hear anything about the fathers playing dual roles too. Just because a chick got custody of the kids doesn't mean she should have those kid. The movie Daddy's Little Girls exposes that well. Another thing that pissed me off is 92.3 is playing a song talking about" I didn't have no daddy around when I was growing, that's why I'm wild and don't give a f**k" On Father's Day!!! That is a damn slap in the face!!! I heard Boyz II Men A Song for Mama and Tupac Dear Mama countless times on the radio that day. You won't hear Doo Doo Brown on Mother's Day. Good gosh no!!! But on Father's Day you have the audacity to play that?!?!? Fathers are very unappreciated these days. A lot of people peg them for what they aren't doing rather than what they are doing. It's a damn shame. ....thank you for taking a look into My Thoughts...

Keep it Up

I just have a short post that I wanted to say today. It's nothing new or profound. Probably something that you have heard before. Whenever you're doing something positive, keep it up. Don't be deterred by anything. The road traveled will not always be a breeze but just keep doing what you're doing. Along the way, you don't know who you are impacting. You don't know who is looking at you for some type of motivation or inspiration. I do something small on my part every week but when it wasn't done, people called me out on it. I like to send out a word of encouragement every Monday. This week I didn't and a few friends of mine, called me out on it. it's encouraging to know that people flock to your positivity. That's why I am saying, just keep doing what you're doing people. When it's positive, don't let the obstacles along the road traveled deter your from your destination....thank you for taking a look into My Thoughts....

Transitions..

Transitions. How many of you are making those right now?? How many of you are thinking about making one in a little bit? How many of you have yet to make one? How many of you are too scared to make one? What is a transition defined as? A passage from one form, state, style, or place to another. I was listening to my friends during my Regionals talking about they need to make some serious moves in life. They don't want to feel like they are making a drastic change to their lives. I told them to look at their lives just in a state of transition. Not in a total state of change. I think if we all look at life kind of like that, it would help with our optimism in life.

There is no way in life that you will remain in the same state for your whole life. You have to do somethings in life to progress yourself despite how you evaluate that success. If you plan to progress in life, you have to make a change to your state of mind. You have to make a change in possibly where you live. You already have the foundation set in you but you have to change it up just a bit. Transition is also described as a modulation. A modulation is defined as the act of modifying or adjusting according to due measure and proportion. If you are making more money in your job and you will want to adjust some thing sin your live according to this proportion in your life. You have to adjust some things in life to better yourself. You are simply transitioning from one place to another. You can't look at it like a drastic change. It isn't. You have laid the ground work in some form or fashion, now be ready to build off that foundation....thank you for taking a look into MY Thoughts...
