If I ever had to pick a song that had helped me through my first real heartbreak, it would be Mary J. Blige’s ‘Real Love’.
Oh 1992… thanks for the mono.
But I’ve had a great deal of love for “Mary” ever since; and she’s really given us much more than her amazingly great music but also some fabulous perceptions, such as the one above and..
“I believe there should be no more drama, but it’s everywhere you go. It’s just about how you get out. You’ve gotta bob and weave because it’s everywhere. How do I keep the drama low? It’s about using your head.”
“Really, every woman is an example to me, because as women we go through so much pain. We have to live this perfect life when we are messed up inside. We all go through trials and tribulations.”
Oh Mary! If you only knew how true this hit earlier today! You see, like most people I try to keep business and personal a little separate. Even though I work at home. Yeah, this is a little easier said than done sometimes. But I stepped back from the business side of things, and let’s just say; I did what I needed to do there and now I have business to attend to! So I had a little time this morning while the kids were off playing with their newly acquired Lego’s and while I was having my coffee, I came across this FABULOUS article..
How to Market Your Business When You’d Rather Be Listening More Than Talking
Oh really? You don’t say? Either way.. I’ve just been observing again for a bit. Obviously!
But this happened right AFTER reading; Mary J Blige:”I’m Not Worried, Trying to Keep It Real – I am Real” because I’d found out there is going to be a documentary released for Mary’s new work The London Sessions. YAY!
I then had a family member make a pretty brash assumption..
I cleared that up right quick. But it made you realize how I had been bobbing and weaving with things too… Until I had to put down the real love. It might have been a little “tough” in a sense. But it was REAL. So thank you, hallelujah and blessed be, hear ya REAL loud and clear with the energy work Universe!
This day really is one of celebration! But there is a balance in which we realize that which we can’t take for granted, what we need to prepare for, and what we do really have to be grateful for in our forgiveness in ourselves and one another! Everyone’s experiences just aren’t going to be the same and we sometimes just need to take a deep breath and allow ourselves to RISE UP again! Whether that is coming from the Phoenix’s ashes or from the Resurrection.. embrace and REJOICE and everyone will be thankful and blessed!!!
Now, rather than have things ramble on.. How about some 90s rejoicing that is sure to bring about some chuckles!?!
And if you’d like to take a stroll down memory lane some more.. Here is the wonderfully fabulous Queen Mary’s, ‘Real Love’.
I hope everyone managed the Full Moon Eclipse over the weekend well and you’ll continue having a BLESSED week!!
