A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all
their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.
They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever
good enough! When you make your mark, you will always attract some
haters…That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share your
blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t handle seeing you
blessed…

It’s dangerous to be like somebody else…

If God wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given
you what He gave them! Right? You never know what people have gone
through to get what they have.

The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but
they don’t know my story… If the grass looks greener on the other side
of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there
too!

We’ve all got some haters among us!  People envy you because you can:

Have a relationship with God
Light up a room when you walk in
Start your own business
Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn’t about the right thing)
Raise your children without both parents being in the home

Haters can’t stand to see you happy, Haters will never want to
see you succeed, Haters never want you to get the victory, most of our
haters are people who are supposed to be on our side. How do you handle
your undercover haters?

You can handle these haters by:

1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are *(VERY IMPORTANT!!)
2. Having a purpose to your life? Purpose does not mean having a job.
You can have a job and still be unfulfilled. A purpose is having
a clear sense of what God has called you to be. Your purpose is not
defined by what others think about you.
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not
human manipulation. Fulfill your dreams!

You only have one life to live…when it’s your time to leave this earth,
you ‘want’ to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my life and fulfilled
‘my’ dreams,… Now I’m ready to go HOME! When God gives you favor, you can
tell your haters, Don’t look at me…Look at Who is in charge of me…’

you say it’s hard enough to live
don’t tell me that it’s over
Stand up!

I feel my vision slipping in and out of focus,
But I’m pushing on for that horizon,
I’m pushing on,
Now I’ve got the blowing wind against my face

It’s not so bad

Higher and higher,
We’re gonna take it,
Down to the wire,
We’re gonna make it,
Out of the fire,
Higher and higher.

– the killers

So (deep breath), I told everyone. My family and close by friends. It was a relief. Also comforting to know the different takes but just that the love and support is there. I can’t wait until this weekend when I go home, to be sanctuary, and just give my heart to the Lord.

I have to admit that I haven’t talked to the big man upstairs, God yet. It’s hard when you’re in a dorm room. That’s why I’m looking forward to going home.

I love the new killers song bling (confessions of a king). It’s very motivational and heart breaking. I just think “its not so bad”.
My friends did that for me. I am honestly thankful for Kellee, Quita, and Sonny, Walter. I still have to tell Serge but I know things can’t go nowhere but up when you’re down. I can’t express how much their support means to me. But I’m grateful.

Well no more of this. At least for now. I wanted to write down some other things actually.

Movie Review

I saw these two movie today in which I totally appreciated, hated, loved, and was in awe by it. Bulsworth. & Wag the Dog..

Bulworth review:
Bulworth

It’s a Senatorial campaign feature on incumbent Senator Jay Billington Bulworth. The guy hires his someone to kill himself on the campaign trail in California but realize his life is worth living. He has this transformation in which he becomes a true honest politician with a sharp tongue and bluntness exposing the evils of politicians in Capitol Hill. Money.

There’s a line in a movie that struck me ” You got to be a spirit! You can’t be no ghost”. And that’s what great men and women who tried to change the establishments in this country have become: ghosts in our past. Examples that come into mind are Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Gandhi, and others who were assassinated or ideas forgotten. Why? Because the true change is in policy of these actions.

This movie unveiled with Obscenity, the political correctness and taboo-topics, that candidates and politicians alike shy away from. I was moved by the realness of it all. Although, at first I sneered and scoffed at the betrayal of the “ghettoness” and the unprofessionalism the movie took. But isn’t that what drives scandal in the political world? Anything out of the ordinary that shakes up pre-existing establishment?

But it all panned out in the end. Into an A-HA! moment in which it all came into consensus. The poverty, the uninsured, and the business, everything interconnected in one moment: defiance.

Wag the dog:
robert de niro & dustin hoffman - Wag the Dog

The second movie that engrave skepticism in my government is Wag the Dog. It’s a spin on a political consultant doing everything in his power and beyond control to have the President re-elect, to such lengths he even created a WAR with a Hollywood producer.

Two things stuck out to me in this film: One was the idea of taking credit. And the other was that how well crafted anything political is. And how mass media and the belief that is given into stories are accepted without question but fed off fear? It was unnerving the conformity of the public, the CIA, and those in motion to support the production of a “real war”. I ask myself and wonder, if I’d have the courage to investigate? Or simply conform? Not an easy thing to deal.

But anyway, I suggest you watch those films whether you are a political junkie or not. They’re really quite entertaining. I mean you have Halle Berry in one and then Dustin Hoffman and Robert de Niro in another. What do you have to loose? Rent it. And do some thinking, go with it.
