The holiday season can be very hard for a lot of people. Often enough, the holidays reminds us of what we’ve lost, or what we do not have, rather than the things we are blessed with and what we should be grateful for.
Hard work is what separates the average from the above average.
I think we feel in love by accident
It wasn’t supposed to happen the way it did
We were doomed from the start
But I kept on loving you anyway
We almost ruined one another
Broken promises and all of the lies
Lying to protect each other from the hurt
But ultimately hurting anyway
Drowned in the misery of our own selfishness
Too prideful to realize what was most important
Which was why we fell in love in the first place
Why I thought and think you are the most beautiful human being
Can we forget the past?
We’ve forgiven, but can we forget the pain and the betrayal?
Can we move forward in love?
Will you love me flaws and all?
Regardless of our past mistakes
Let’s put our pride to the side
Let’s love, let’s live, let’s be great

I was on one of my nightly twitter rants
discussing venting about the last relationship that I was in while I was in Houston. And part of my frustration is that we never had closure. I spoke with “him” today. It was hard; it’s always hard. I never got over him. This was the one time that I actually fought falling in love; he kind of stole my heart. And I don’t really think he even tried to. But it happened. But to this day, I still love him and would do anything for him.
I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since we met
We fell in love, then you broke my heart
And I’m still dealing with the residuals of that
To meet someone who I thought was beautiful
Inside and out; perfect
You challenged me
You made me want to be better
Then you took it all away
With no regard to my heart
With no regard to my well-being
And I came crumbling down
So here we are
Not even speaking
and I don’t know how to deal with that
I don’t know how I can move on
and fall in love with someone else
At the risk of losing myself again
At the risk of falling in love and getting my heart broken
All over again
But you don’t care
But you say you do
But actions speak louder than words
Yesterday, I had a conversation yesterday with my coworker about dating and relationships. She stated how crucial she feels the 1st three months of dating are. She expressed how that feeling of excitement that two people have toward one another in the beginning is important… Those googly eyes, the way your heart beats when you’re around them, how you want to tell them your entire life story, obsessing over that person, wanting to talk on the phone with them all day and night, etc.
To anyone who reads this,
In any relationship (friendship, companionship, partnership, business relationship, or “Talking” to someone), communication is important. Miscommunication is the worst thing that can happen to any relationship. Why? Because miscommunication leads to misunderstanding; which, in turn, leads to a plethora of other problems. What I’ve learned in my (almost) 26 years of living is to say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and stand up for yourself. Be respectful, but don’t be a pushover.
It’s been a month since Toni Braxton & Babyface release their duets album ‘Love, Marriage, & Divorce’ and the two of them are still hot on the promo trail. The two superstars performed their lead single “Hurt You” today on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ live to her audience and did an amazing job.
Billboard released sales predictions moments ago for Toni Braxton and Babyface’s duet album ‘Love, Marriage, and Divorce’.
55,000 – 65,000 first week
Chart position: #3
*Sighs* As a MAJOR fan of Toni Braxton, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t expecting more. Partially because I know for a FACT that this is a GREAT album. I cannot listening to it. Secondly, Toni has a major following, over 1.2 million twitter followers, and the Braxton Family Values platform. Additionally, the fact that she and Babyface worked together, I was expecting at least 100,000 first week. AT LEAST!
Oh well, it is what it is. I just hope the momentum picks up and stays consistent. We’d love to see this album be certified gold.
Fresh on the promo trail of their new album, ‘Love, Marriage, and Divorce’, Toni Braxton and Babyface stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk with the popular morning radio hosts.
Definitely an interesting conversation. I must say, nothing was held back. Toni went into detail about events that surrounded her divorce, bankruptcy, and and her popular show with her sisters.
Check out what happened in the interview below.
