What’s good world?? So my co-blogger has been genuinely killing me on the blog tip lately, so I have to step my game up. With that being said… Yeaaaa it’s crunch time baabaay!!! Haha but the topic of discussion for today will be taking risks and how it goes both ways in the dynamic of the male-female relationship. If you are not willing to take risks, how can you ask for risks to be taken on yourself? Or another question to be asked can be are risks worth being taken from either side? These two questions to me are the most dynamic when it comes to how males and females interact with each other when first meeting. I feel these two questions are some of the most important when a man is interested in a woman and vice versa. Lets delve into this issue a little deeper.

Love is one of the most powerful things to encompass this Earth. People search hell and high waters to find their true love. People work job after job until they find the career they love. People go to school for decades to learn information about a subject they are passionate about or love. True love can give you a feeling of utopia almost unmatched in this world of ours.

Everybody wants, yearns and will give or do just about anything in this world to achieve true love. But the problem is most people don’t understand when to love and to when to let go. Shoot most people don’t even know how to love to begin with. And maybe that’s the biggest problem, who teaches people how to love? How do you know when you are receiving the right love? How do you know if the love you are giving to other people is the right kind of love? (more…)

As we move through the year quickly, I look up and notice June is upon me.  Not only is June here, but we are nearly halfway through the month, and the year for that matter.   As I realized it was nearly the third weekend in the month, the thing that was crossing my mind was that we hadn’t done a post this month.   (Don’t worry good people; we have been in the lab.  Forgive us for our delayed posts; both of us have been quite busy. )  With that said, I heard somebody make reference to FATHER’S DAY coming up, and I didn’t even realize how close it was.   Holiday’s rarely creep up on me, but this one has.   Looking at the dynamics of the holiday, I’m sure most people overlook the day.  People know weeks in advance when mother’s is coming, but for a holiday nearly a month later, it manages to fall under the radar.  For people to remember FATHER’S DAY, would imply they are celebrating a father.   Having been fatherless for years, I can see why it slipped my mind.  Since I was reminded, it got my mind wandering again.  For some reason, when my mind starts to think, I feel the need to share with everybody.  I thought about the real meaning of the third Sunday in June, entitled “Father’s Day.”  I didn’t just think about the meaning of the holiday, but the term that we use to describe the day itself.

Father is best defined “as a male parent who assumes as one’s own; take the responsibility.  Traditionally, fathers act in a protective, supportive and responsible way towards their children.”  This is how the term is ‘defined’, but is that what real happens.  Unfortunately I have to disagree, over the years we have lost the essence of  being a father, we have lost real fathers.   Essentially FATHER’S DAY has just become a second mother’s day.  A growing number of women are forced to play both the role of the mother and father.  These women get overlooked rarely receiving the acknowledgement deserved.   I applaud every woman out there, who is doing everything she can to provide for her children.  Enough praise and acknowledgement can not be offered to these ladies.  However, I am disappointed in the lack of fatherhood I continue to see as I mature.

I want to apologize to everyone, I have been quite busy doing a bunch of things in my professional as well as personal life.  I still have deep thoughts and debates with anyone willing to listen, so my mind is always working.  As I mentioned I have been busy professionally, started a new job last week; been in training this week. The training this week is actually the reason for this post.  The training I was in consists of gang intervention, but it has been more than that for me.  There was a section speaking on deaths, funerals, and vigils.  This segment really caught my attention, and got my thoughts flowing again. Essentially it was a conversation about the celebration of life, as oppose to the grievance of death.  The celebration of life really clicked to me, and how people tend to view funerals.  Most view the wake, the funeral, the burial as a sad time… Rightfully so, a love one was lost.  Very rarely do people view death as a “celebration.”  Ironically my co writer happen to write a post about time.  After reading his post (Can I Have Some More Please) it just added fuel to the fire, felt I could share my thoughts about a few things.

So seeing that it’s not only Black History Month, but the month Cupid flies around with his chubby cakes and shoots people with love arrows, I figured we venture to the left and give an uplifting post of black love. Below is a quote from one of the late great men of the African American race, Marcus Garvey.

A happy but miserable state in which man finds himself from time to time; sometimes he believes he is happy by loving, then suddenly he finds how miserable he is.  It is all joy, it sweetens life, but it does not last.  It comes and goes, but when it is active, there is no greater virtue, because it makes one supremely happy.” – Marcus Garvey …KEEP READING!
