I'm Just Saying...


Hey there!!! I know I'm usually pretty inspirational but can I just be candid? First off, let me say that I love Andrea "Drea" Kelly. She is a professional dancer and the ex-wife of R. Kelly who starred on the reality show "Hollywood Exes." Drea has the best quotes EVER! The one I posted above is my all-time favorite. She doesn't say anything necessarily profound, but she does speak the truth. Am I the only one who loathes childish and petty people?  I am friends with several people from high school on Facebook and I have to often remind myself that we are the same age. From their posts, you would think they were still in high school. Smh...

I have come to realize that being "grown" has nothing to do with age. Grown people handle their business! Grown people sacrifice! Grown people are mature! So, like Drea, I could care less about haters, the newest pair of Jordans, or the hottest new club. My mind is on building an empire, leaving a legacy for my children, strengthening my marriage, and pleasing God. And because of this, I only surround myself with like-minded people...#Mortgages and #StretchMarks baby!!! LOL

I guess my reason for writing this post is just to say we have to grow-up! It's time out for childish behavior and immature mindsets. Don't surround yourself with people on your level. Instead, surround yourself with people who are where you want to be. 2016 is the year to get your life in order! Start saving, pay off some debt, declutter your life, finish school, work on rebuilding your credit, get a life insurance policy, start a college fund for your children, start saving for retirement, stop depending on others to take care of you, focus on being a better person, strengthen your relationship with God...do something to better your life! Most importantly, don't procrastinate! Procrastination is the archenemy of success so start today! :)

Love ya!
