Its the holiday season where white snow starts littering the ground and where the is less turkey running around. Next time you gathering around the family dinner table for some good food and laughs, remember to consider this!



 “He’s A Guy: They All Act That

Way. Relax.”

Ok. All guys are not the same and all guys are not jerks. Being a “guy” should not be an acceptable excuse/explanation as to why that person is acting the fool.

If you ever find yourself saying/accepting that phrase, take a step back and reconsider the situation.

Do not settle. Do not explain away. Do not make excuses.

“Your Standards Are Too High. Lower


In fact, don’t. Having high standards and morals to judge your future spouse by is actually very wise: it will save you many headaches down the road!

In fact, if you missed it, these are the standards I was judging my now husband by!

There are men out there who are still respectful, who still desire to do things for their woman like open their doors, work to pay the bills, and lend a helping hand. There are men out there who will still desire to protect their family and put their famil(ies) need first.

Don’t get distracted by the “players” and do not lower realistic standards. Be open to knowing that your man won’t be perfect. He will make mistake. He might actually be the complete opposite you were looking for!***

So, be flexible but keep your principles high.

 “It Must Be Something You’re Doing


Or, is it something that you are doing right?

Never rush and jump head first into a relationship/marriage. Why? I’ll let a wise man -yes man!- answer that!

“Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened ox with hatred.” Proverbs 15:17
It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.” Proverbs 21:19

 “You Know Your ‘Clock’ Is Ticking,


very common saying amongst and between single women. A woman might have heard those words spoken to her or,  she might have even said those words to herself a time, or two, or three.

Whilst I was in my single, ambitious, career driven age of 25 I heard those words said to me a lot!

At one point, I got so frustrated I said,

“Let it tick then!”

I mean, does it really stop ticking tomorrow when I finally got a boyfriend compared to yesterday when I didn’t? Does it really stop ticking once I get married or have a child, or two, or three?

Bottom line is, this ‘clock’ that everyone refers to is going to click until menopause or death happens: whichever comes first. Therefore, let it tick!

No need to rush into something that you’re not ready for or, force something that isn’t there.

#1: “Why Are You Still Single?”

Single people aint tryna stay single! Well, some might actually be!

Some married folks are actively acting or secretly wishing to be single again!

So, whatever the reason, both singles and couples came over this holiday season for one reason and one reason only: to eat!

So let it be!
