Mind dumping #2

I tell people, “I make crazy look sane” all the time. Said it recently, and the person was a little shook.

Why is it when you tell people you don’t do the bullshit and drama, it’s those very same people who bring it to you?

Words without action are just words.

Do things that make people not notice you for just your skin color.

If you haven’t done it already, call, txt, or write someone and let them know you love them or how much they mean to you.

Make sure you take care of your health and get your checkups/blood tests done. It’s better to know than not know. (Take that from a 1 year breast cancer survivor)

Clean out your closets emotionally, no good will come of any future relationship if you don’t.

Speak up, speak out, and stand for something.

Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover; people tend to show you who they are without ever opening up.

Actions speak loud as hell.

Never invest where there is no yield on your deposit; meaning stop being in or pursuing relationships with no progression.

Stop competing with the short bus and losing.

If you’re honest you never have to worry about anything you’ve said/done.

There is NO such thing as p*ssy or d*ck THAT good to make you act the damn fool over.

If it seems too good to be true, it probably is; honor your intuition.

If you’re grown and sexy; then act accordingly; nothing’s worse than grown folk acting a damn monkey and looking a triple hot mess.

Please, please, please STOP saying the following: irregardless, conversate, and putting ‘ted’ on the end of words that do not require it…lookted is NOT a word!

Make informed decisions and stop jumping on bandwagons.
Love!

Love how I can click on iS iT jUsT mE? and get treated to some great words of wisdom like the one above.

Honesty goes along ways. Too funny @ lookted I agree, if it seems too good to be true; it is.

@so wise - lol @ you using irregardless...you did that just to mess with me right?!

@Don - Cleaning out the emotional close was one of those truths that needs to be spoken and was one of the best moves I've made. I like that our minds think alike. Lookted just sounds awful doesn't it?! *covering ears*

Love!

@ms.honey - thanks for the compliment lady. yes, there's definitely a method to my madness.

@jenelly - hey lady...long time. LMAO@ Mr. Coco Puff.

@jus - yes, we most certainly have talked about folk adding ish to words that don't need to be there. if it wasn't for the charges i'd catch, i'd slap the taste out of the mouths of dumb speaking folk. ditto on the luv.

Love!

Oh. My. GOD! And didn't I just have a drama moment with such a person? (Remember the ish I told you about in the bowling alley???) It's crazy... because they agree with your statement and then become an object of drama... like they saw you as a drama challenge or something.

Make sure you take care of your health and get your checkups/blood tests done. It’s better to know than not know. (Take that from a 1 year breast cancer survivor)

I was just telling a woman with fibroids today that I owe myself a few things... To get my tests done and to improve my lifestyle for optimal health. How me or anybody else can keep playing with this ish... I have no idea. ::shrugs.shakes head::

If you’re honest you never have to worry about anything you’ve said/done.

Amen to that one. People call me super honest. I say I'm lazy... too lazy to keep up with lies, so why tell any? LOL

Lol I love this. Great post! ;)

Blu Jewel said...

@trina - thank you lady and i sure will.

@eb - NO, NO, NO you canNOT use lookted anymore. *lol*

@darius - it's a big time necessity; one that too few employ.

@hawa - sis, you know we share the same ideal on drama; it's unncessary; period. i know you handled it and her like the gracious queen you are. As for your health, don't make me tell you abou this again. Honesty is simply the best way to live/be.

@deonte - thanks...glad you enjoyed it.

Love!

Good stuff.

nikki said...

these are all on point. man, when a dude be like "can we conversate" i be like "can we? what da hell does that word mean?!?" IT'S CONVERSE! CONVERSE! LIKE THE GAWTDAMN SHOE FOLK.

aiight, i'm done with the rant.

um, i especially love the one about not investing where there is no yield on the deposit. that ain't nothin but the TRUFE. also agree with the actions speak loud as hell. you know i already done spoke on that one. LOL

Blu Jewel said...

@mystery - thank you very kindly!

@nikki - girl, you and i are all up in here *points to eyes and does that back/forth motion* My response has typically been like yours or I say, "we can converse because I don't know how to conversate". *enter crickets for their response*

the investing analogy was one i've carried since my first bf in high school. his boy hipped me to it when ol boy was doing me dirty. yes, i recall your post on actions and i actually thought about you when i was writing my thoughts.

love!
