Enough With Entertainer Smear Campaigns!

In light of the Prince smear campaign, I’ve got to speak up. This happens too often with those people who not only entertain us, but enrich our lives, and become a part of our journey through life.

Though many would like to personally know their entertainer heroes, you’re given the opportunity to share in the creativity and talent they chose to share.

Does learning of their personal lives, takeaway from the art, music, movies, writing, etc., that they gave you? It shouldn’t.

So, for the entertainers I know, work with, love, and support… Thank you! For sharing your gift with me, and countless others. What you choose to do in your personal life, is just that; personal. And frankly, is none of anyone’s business during your life or death.

I want you to know that you’ve all contributed, in some way, to my growth; and for that, I thank you!

There’s something special about being able to learn from the bad in life, while holding onto the good. It’s taught me to be a better person and do the right thing, when at times all I wanted to do was get even. Turning 40 shifted my thought process and how I look at things, making these core values within myself, more prominent. I’ve never been one to roll-over, but have always been one to take a lot and yes, there’s a difference.

Open Your Eyes

When you can’t see what’s in front of you slipping away, that, is indeed a sad day.

More and more we struggle with things we have. Meaning, we forget their importance and how quickly they can be removed. Wether by fate, tragedy, or choosing of their own. Once they’ve moved beyond our grasp, there is an unlikely chance, to get them back.

Open your eyes to all that is, truly, important. Those things you have failed to see, due to day to day blindness, selfishness, or mere lack of regard. Realizing those things that once were, may never be again, if you choose to neglect because you can.
