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…

How to Find You

Okay let’s be honest….no one will ever know, have you ever wished you had features and/or qualities like someone else.I have, several times.My first experience with this desire was around six or seven years old.At such an early age, I found myself wanting to be more like my mother.I am from a single family home in which my mother was the sole bread winner and I knew early on that my quality of life depended on her.As a result, I always paid close attention to my mother’s work ethics, personal drives and ambitions.Witnessing my mother handle her responsibilities so well in the 70’s made her my hero; therefore I wanted so much to echo her in various areas.I wanted to look like her; she is what we define as light-skinned, and physically framed very well.She was able to speak her mind freely with eloquence and never allowed people to run over her.She was awesome in my opinion.But I soon realized that I didn’t look like her.I am dark-skinned, full-figured, and beautiful I might add.Therefo…
