First, I want to say RIP Whitney Houston. I absolutely loved her and I always will! My grandfather did too. I think everyone did and they were so excited to see her progress and move forward with her life and make a major comeback. I pray for her family. Bobby Brown struggled at the New Edition concert Saturday night after hearing of the news but he made it out on stage. I will have more details of the concert tomorrow. Pray for all of her family and friends. She will NEVER be forgotten.
I wanted to address my friends and followers who do not have plans for Valentine's Day or do not have a special someone worth spending Valentine's day with. Sometimes when these holidays and romantic days come around, people ask, " hey, what do you have planned today?". This implying that you must have something planned. You must have someone to spend this day with. You must be so excited about it. If you don't then there must be something wrong with you. Please do not go this route with your thoughts or feelings. In this day and age, it is SUPER difficult to find a compatible companion. It gets to the point where you feel you have to settle or accept what you get. You don't. Some of us believe that if he buys you things he is great. Or if you have a child with him, you have to stay. Or even, he will change and start treating you the way you should be treated later. He won't. So don't settle. Love is so beautiful it should be done right! Believe me, I know! If I didn't meet my Hubby, I would still be out there dating and going through the drama that goes along with it. It seems to be 1 great guy for every 20 guys. But God will intervene and give you the desires of your heart when you let go of all of the negative and non-productive parts of your life.
If you do have these problems or if you have no one special in your life right now.... don't mope. Everyone does not experience love at the same time in life. It will come... just be patient and invest time into yourself and your dreams. Love on a family member of best friend if you want to. Take them to the movies or out to dinner. If you just want to be alone, start a journal. It does the body good!
Whatever you do, enjoy tomorrow and do not mope. We will spend the night in with Nadia and take pictures!
