Don't let the grapevine in any organization get the best of you.  I'm not going to pretend like we're not all human and haven't speculated/discussed the going ons with our peers, but in work,  church,  school and home;  only believe what you KNOW. It's true that a lot of times where there's smoke there'll be flames but again only believe what you know.  Gossiping and hearsay might be keeping you from your blessing. It may be the reason you're not getting ahead at work.  Sure sometimes the tea may be served steaming hot, right on the money and right on time but more often than not the tea can be cold, not even close to the truth, facts blown out of proportion. Or the tea may not even be tea at all. It could be just BS. The saying "If they gossip with you , they'll certainly gossip I about you" is true. You can't really trust anyone when it comes to gossiping. A lot of times rumors, thoughts, and hearsay just come out during casual conversations. The person may or may not be purposefully being malicious. You can say something then of course they'll have to add what 'they heard'. And you know any of the gossip they provide during the conversation will most certainly be credited to you. I could go on and on but I think you get the picture. Be careful. You can take the info and store away but try not to let it stop you from getting to know a person,  or applying for a job or whatever it is you want to do.
I'm done rambling. Much Love.

I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.

BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.

Here's two links to purchase the book.

Do you have any tips for effectively changing habits?

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …
