I'm excited!!! My iPhone came in the mail yesterday and so far I love it! I hear people have been sleeping outside the Apple stores to make their purchases this morning. I guess that pre-sale did pay off even though it took almost 3 hours due to system glitches from the overload of orders. I've been a blackberry advocate for years and I'm going to miss it but it's time for change :-) Let's just pray this at&t service isn't as bad as people say....

Controlling Emotions VS. Being A Pushover

My mind doing what it does wild, I thought about the difference between controlling your emotions and being a pushover. It's really hard when you feel you are being taken advantage of, tested or disrespected but you don't have the desire to jump off the deep end. So I posed the question on twitter and I got two interesting responses...

its a fine line..because people tend to mistake your control 4 weakness which for some reason gives them a green light to push your buttons. As long as you're comfortable with who you are, people trying to push u to the limit won't make u question your strength or maturity but...rather prove that they have an issue, not you.

a pushover~ is sumone easily defeated...your emotions such as joy, sorrow, fear, love, hate are how YOU feel.. NO ONE can change that!

I thought those were a couple good ways to look at it...there is nothing wrong with being a nice person, being vulnerable (which exudes strength) and not taking everything personal. But when you feel you have had enough, it is up to you to walk away and do it with pride knowing you did everything you could in the situation and you still have your dignity because all a person can do is respect someone for moving away from something that isn't making them happy or could potentially take them out of character.

Boondocks: Added to DVR lineup!

This is already Season 3 of the Boondocks and I am just beginning to watch, I have become a big fan!! This cartoon is a social satire of American culture and stereotypes in the world. The Boondocks started out as a comic strip then turned in to this hilarious tv show, which comes on every Sunday night at 11:30 on Cartoon network.

Check it out...if this doesn't make you laugh, nothing else will! I have to look into buying Seasons 1 and 2.

I Love The Smith's: Karate Kid

So yesterday I saw the Karate Kid movie and it was so well put together and Jaden Smith did such a great job!! There were so many lessons for children as well as adults in the movie...I can't tell everything and ruin it for those who haven't seen the film but the most important lesson I got was hard work and good character will always pay off in the end. BUT until you make up your mind that you will work hard, things won't fall into place...Jackie Chan did his thing also and those fight scenes were craaazy! I know everyone put in tons of physical work and it definitely paid off. What makes it even better for the Smith family is the movie brought in $56 million on it's opening day and being as though Will & Jada were the phrase "MONEY IN THE BANK"!!

I've always loved this Smith family, they are definitely my inspiration for my future family. Aside from the Obamas, the Smith's are one of my fave families! After their interview on Oprah I had an even deeper respect for them and the way they choose to raise their children. I never knew this but it all makes sense how they say families should set goals and everyone needs to figure out what they will contribute to the family, community and then the world. If you don't have clear goals then it's easy to get caught up in the craziness of the world. Jada & Will have so much love for one another while still being very hands on with their kids. There are lots of people who comment about them letting Willow cut her hair and dress "crazy" but I think it's kind of cool that they allow their kids to be individuals and express themselves. She spoke on this in an article in "Cookie Magazine". We all get caught up in what others think of us and let the world define what we should and should not be...then we end up trying to live out other people's dreams and become mirror images of what we think is success and end up empty and miserable on the inside.

Karate Kid is definitely a must see and the Smith's are really about to take over!!

Career Change....

#Random thought for the day...I'm in search of a new career. Thinking about my likes and dislikes and moving on from there. I know I have more to offer with the things I enjoy doing in my personal time, just thinking of a way to put them all together to pursue a new career! #prayforme

Back to daydreaming...
