Easier Said Than Done...
Facebook was blowing up recently after the airing of the movie, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story". I saw many posts about the great acting and the actual story itself. But, one thing that stayed on my mind was how the narrator (which I believe was supposed to be the voice of T-Boz) stated "We were writing songs about being independent women but the reality was something different." Wow! Isn't that something? I think the reason that it stayed with me so is because sometimes things are "easier said than done". I remember growing up and stating that I would NEVER allow a man to hit me. I would NEVER be cheated on. I would NEVER be that type of woman. Well, lo and behold, it was so much easier said than done.
Now, I've learned to be more forgiving of myself. I've learned to be more gentle with myself. I've learned that it's best to respect myself to know what type of treatment that I deserve and when I see the early signs that I'm not receiving that type of treatment then I need to make necessary changes. I've learned that I should be more select with my language. But, most importantly, I've learned to take one day at a time. Now THAT I think I can do!
