I Think I Have A Good One

It's been quite a while since my last post; needless to say I have missed you all.  However, there have been various things that have changed in my life's arena some great and some have been challenging.  Nevertheless, I hope and pray that all is well in your life and here's to the start of a series of many great posts from Sister's Expressions.

As you may or may not remember my last post was about "How to Meet the Man of Dreams", in which I discussed a conversation with two ladies who both met their dream guys by way of personal friends.  This method of meeting a great guy intrigued me to the point I was willing to give it a try once my previous relationship became bleak and sizzled out.  I began by sharing with those I most trusted that I was once again single and was simply looking for someone to go out to dinner with on occasion without any commitments.  An old friend once advised me that it's best to spend time with one's self right after a break-up in order to get to know you again and I was determined to take that advice and build upon it.  In addition to the break-up with a companion of two years, I found myself in a pivotal moment in life as it related to my career and some personal friendships.  Therefore, I was in no position to take on a serious relationship of any sort.

Shortly after obtaining a new employment opportunity and regaining my composure from broken friendships I regained my strength and began to feel alive again.  The air felt more crisp and fresh from day to day.  My love and enjoyment of life began to bloom once again.  My smile was not only shown on my face but it was radiant from within.  Soon I was meeting new and interesting people and having great relationships with those who remained.  During an outing with a group of friends one of them happen to mentioned that she knew a guy she would love for me to meet just to see if our personalities would match.  Reluctantly, I agreed and within three weeks I found myself at a dinner table in Buckhead enjoying myself.  Needless, to say he and I have been spending a great deal of quality time together.  Now I'm not saying that it's headed towards marriage, but I Do Think I Have a Good One!  As the ladies stated in my last post and I now agree "a friend who REALLY has your best interest in mind and know you well is a great way to meet a good guy".  I am once again asking you to try it but at your own risk and don't forget to let us know about your experiences......Smooches!!!

Real Friendships are Balancing and Relaxing

Given the fact that birthdays are very special to me, this past weekend was very exciting! It was time to celebrate one of my dear friends (Patrice Harrell) birthday.  During this time of her life's celebration, I witnessed friendships that are balancing and relaxing to say the least. I know you are wondering what I mean about balancing and relaxing.  Let me elaborate if you will. Experiencing balance within friendships consist of opportunities of being transparent,  unmasking, competition free, and growth developing moments.  As it relates to the term relaxing, simply put, opportunities to be less tense or anxious.

Therefore, as expected her birthday began with an evening of family, friends, food and music at her newly purchased home. Toasting, cheers, and bliss filled the atmosphere. The ambience was full of unconditional love and a strong presence of God's un-measuring favor in several areas including marriage and friendship.  As a result, the festivities called for a seco…

Now Let's Talk Steel Magnolias

As I expected “Steel Magnolias” was wonderfully written and well preformed.The cast worked great together and their acting capabilities complimented each other without prejudice.The revised script gave a warm feeling to what a southern African –American family would exemplify with regards to love, family bond, and friendship.Although, there were many messages for us to gain from, the one in particular that I wanted to make mention of is acceptance!
Understanding that we all are imperfect beings should lead us to the awareness that we all make mistakes in various areas of life, relationship and sisterhood.It was quite evident that all of the ladies suffered some type of life disappointment and each one dealt with it in their own way.Nevertheless, each of them knew the other’s struggle and accepted their friend just as she was while allowing room for growth.I would love to hear what message you gathered from the film….don’t be shy…communicating is good for the SOUL!
P.S. If you had to cho…

It's Time to Write Again

One of the most natural purposes of  human life is having the ability to contemplate subjects and topics during our time in this universe.  Like myself perhaps, you have found yourself thinking "life is worth living, therefore it's worth writing!"
