Does hating on someone else help you win? No seriously, that’s my question. Does hating on anyone make you a better person? Does your GPA rise? Do you suddenly have edges? ? No? Oh really? *sips margarita* What is the point of spending your time and energy talking about someone else’s life? If you spent less time hating on others, you would have more time to be just as great as others. *drops mic and twirls* #dontbeahater
*sighs into a face palm* People don’t believe me when I say I’ve never had to battle with insecurities. I’ve never thought I was less than or inadequate, and yes-I know i’m lucky for that. However, I have seen what insecurities has done to others. I see the pain and hesitation where there should be love and pride. I hope that this new year is good to you, my loves. I hope you fall in love with every “flaw” that you’ve been blessed with. Because until you fall head over heels…with yourself you will NEVER be happy. And everyone deserves to be happy. You're allowed to love yourself. 2016 is your year for bliss.
I love the word scrub, but I hate the meaning. Can we vote scrubs off our islands of greatness this year? No seriously, can we take a vow not to accept anything less than the best. And yes ladies, the best is out there. So stop letting him play you. Say it with me gals: “A scrub is a guy who ain’t getting no love from me”. Now repeat until you believe, accept, and execute this. *drops mic*
Someone lied to us. Imitation is not the best form of flattery, it’s the most annoying. *Kanye shrugs* Now, I haven’t spoken up about this BUT: Yes, I’ve seen all of the “blogs” and “sites” out there that have attempted to imitate mine. And yes, my friends screenshot your post that resemble mine and I think it's fine. I am honored that you love what I do so much that you want to imitate it. I'm actually in a trademark legal battle over our web series LadyLike. Someone loved that show soooo much that they decided to steal it! But all I can do is laugh, because it’s cute. However, I’m going to need you to find your own voice. I worked really hard at discovering mine, and the fact that you think it’s ok to steal my phrases, style, or layout is disgusting. You see, I’m not only a blogger, I’m a writer. A comedic writer at that. So I put a lot into everything I put into the atmosphere. (I’m an artist I’m sensitive about my shit). I love ruling the world. I love that you’re ruling the world. I don’t love that you find safety in stealing the way I choose to rule the world. I can’t wait for you to reflect and come up with your own ORIGINAL way to share your heart. When that happens I will be your biggest supporter. Be yourself.
You have enough haters questioning your greatness, don’t do their job for them. A few weeks ago, the showrunner of The Colbert Show was our class guest. He gave us 10 minutes to research what was going on in the world and pitch him an idea. A funny idea. I freaked. I literally started to perspire. #ewwstopthat. After the first few minutes of searching for new stories, I realized that I was only attracted to the stories about celebrities. I found the Kardashians easier to make fun of than politics. And that terrified me. You see, I am one of two female comedic writers in my program. I’m bubbly and I know that I come off as a ditz sometimes, so in that moment I thought that pitching a funny sketch about the Kardashians would brand me negatively. Well time was running out, so I decided to pitch what I was comfortable with. I pitched a skit idea about the Facebook baby…and everyone laughed. No seriously, he said “yea-that’s funny”. My heart stopped. That was the moment I realized that I was meant to do what I’ve been doing. I just had to believe in what I was doing. I had to believe that my kooky, funky, bubbly personality was enough to be great, and I didn’t have to be someone else to win. So in 2016 let’s stop doubting out greatness.
Stop comparing your journey. We’re not on the same path. Our maps are not identical. Our roads are not similar. You cannot critique where you are in life when you notice another person’s growth. I think we should leave the theory that lifestyles can be compared and contrasted. You don’t live in a Venn Diagram.#stopthat
I’m the worst frenemy to have. *Kanye shrugs* I literally pay no attention to you. We’re not friends. You’re not worth the time it would take to become my enemy, so I ignore you. I literally don’t acknowledge your existence. I just don’t see the point. I’m too busy to play pretend with you. Let’s just leave each other alone, and act like the other doesn’t exist in 2016.
I view Dogma as immediately accepting a social norm as truth. It’s like if you grew up in a small town where everyone got married at 18,worked at the oil-field, and lived in a white picket fenced home; and because of your upbringing you feel like that is the only option for you. It’s like you immediately accept the life that others have chosen. Lets leave dogma in 2015. Let’s break the norms.
We’re meant to change. *drops glitter* that’s all that I have to say. We are MEANT TO CHANGE. Maybe one day we’ll actually stop fearing it and embracing it. Maybe 2016 will be our year for embracing the change in our lives. Remember, everything happens for a reason. Go with the flow.
I ended a friendship in 2015 and it still freaks me out. But she hopped from relationship to relationship, and with that shifted her life. And I was part of her old life that had to go. The funny thing is that I may not know who she is right now, but I still know her issues. The fact that she ended a 4 year relationship to “be alone and find herself” is fine. The fact that finding herself meant finding a new man is disgusting, and I can't respect that. If you need another person to be whole, then you need help. You need to fall in love with yourself, and I hope this new year is your time for that.
*face palms* If people have bad energy, let them go! It’s really that simple! If they constantly throw shade and make you unhappy then LET THEM GO! Not everyone is meant to be in your life forever. Some people are just meant to drop in and remind you that you control the energy around you. Stop giving others control over your happiness, it’s pretty much 2016.
You can fall in love. You can lust. But you can’t fall in love with lust. I’ve learned what it’s like to love your partner in life, and it’s beautiful. (I’ll post more about that later…maybe) But I’ve also learned that my past attempts at love have been led with lust, and I can’t expect that to work. I can’t make love out of lust. It’s too genuine of a feeling to fake. In 2016 let’s be a bit more honest with our intentions and feelings. #newyear #newme
Seriously…is it over yet? Can we end this joke? Where’s the punchline?
This is your year to rule the world. No more excuses ladies! You want a 4.0? Do it. You want to brand yourself correctly? Do it. You want to start a business, dominate the market, and takeover the freaking world….do it. No. More. Excuses. *claps ratchetly* We’re running out of time to make Forbes 30 under 30. New Year. New Goals. No Excuses.
I've recently stopped explaining myself to others. I don’t explain myself to anyone. No but seriously, I don’t offer any explanations for my actions. For example, I don’t answer my phone. If you were to text or call me now I wouldn’t answer. And when people ask me why I never respond I always answer: because I don’t want to. That’s it. I think it’s about time we owned our actions and feelings. We need to be unapologetically ourselves. So stop feeling like you need a reason to do what you want. You are allowed to choose yourself in 2016 and always.
