With Valentine’s Day in our rear view mirrors, it’s probably appropriate to talk about the art of breaking up (hee hee). You could say that recent events in my own life have made me stop and think about why breaking up is so hard to do. I personally commend all of those heartless men and women out there who have the ability to sever ties and not look back. Me? I’m like that puppy that knows when you’re going out of town and all they do is whimper and cry as you pack your bags, as if it will change someone’s mind. I mean, call it separation anxiety or being a softy, but I just don’t break up with people…I just CAN’T do it!
So, here’s MY deal. I get so attached to people, I invest all of my energy into someone that when the time comes and the dreadful downward spiral begins, it just seems impossible. It honestly feels like breaking up would be the equivalent of not having an arm or not being able to breathe…you just can’t imagine that, right?
Can you break up with someone? How do you do it? Is it this insane build up of awkward exchanges then one day you finally break and blurt out, “YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US?!” like in the movie Mean Girls? Or do you just distance yourself until the other person breaks up with you so that you don’t have to do the dirty work? Or do you just disappear and hope that no one notices? I’m sure someONE must have the answers…right?
Far too often relationships feel like a chore and from a very young age, many of us have heard relationships take work and love is hard. But, I’m not so sure that’s true. If two people are in love, sure, there will be tough times, but shouldn’t it be the ONE thing in life that you don’t have to work at? Shouldn’t it be that “gimme” from God that’s just not too hard? Maybe if being with someone was understood to be just a temporary “thing” then ending it wouldn’t be such a difficult task. At some point I’m sure I’ll have to grow up and put my big girl panties on and learn how to do the breaking up thing, but for now I’ll let the grown-ups master that art. I’m OK with being an incapable 32-year-old sucker!
I’ve pondered for weeks on if I should even write about this. There’s a fine line between touching on a relevant topic and exploiting someone’s real life for gained readers. I came to my decision to write about Bruce Jenner’s transformation because he [and eventually she] will be publicly addressing this major decision and he seems to be very comfortable with the world knowing.
So, here it goes! The former Olympic gold medalist, more recently known for appearing on the hit reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is transforming into a woman. Throughout the years, we’ve seen him struggle in his marriage to Kris Jenner and fight to build relationships with his kids. It was easy to feel for the guy. At one point he seemed like the only sane person on the show. With his divorce being very public and documented on TV, we’ve seen less and less of Bruce.
During this down time, rumors of a sex transformation began to surface. At first, it just seemed like a distasteful accusation, but now, reports actually confirm that Bruce Jenner is in fact becoming a woman. Photos of him wearing lipstick, nail polish and having long hair in ponytails started taking over the Internet.
Bruce is said to have confirmed an upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer where he will speak freely about his decision. Not many family members have spoken up with their opinions, but his mother did state, “I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect” during her Radaronline interview.
Take a look at Bruce’s looks over the years and remember that this is his choice. Everyone has the right to live their life as they see fit. Let’s not judge!

Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Georgia home. She was reportedly found by her husband, Nick Gordon, who gave Bobbi CPR until paramedics arrived. This is eerily similar to how Whitney Houston was found the night she died, 3 years ago.
Bobbi Kristina is now in ICU, in an induced coma, to help reduce the swelling of her brain. The cause has not been identified, but updates will be provided as they are made available.
Prayers for Bobbi Kristina!
Chris Brown is known as the new R&B/Pop bad boy of our time. He’s been in the news for issues surrounding his temper and is currently serving his 1000 hours of community service, of which he still has 100 hours outstanding, for his abuse towards Rihanna and his recent fight with a fan in DC.
In order for Chris Brown to travel, he must gain the judge’s approval and consent. He was slated to go on the road for his Between the Sheets Tour which features Trey Songz and rapper Tyga. However, the judge denied Brown’s request and he will not be able to tour until he completes the remaining community service hours.
Chris released the following apology to his fans via Instagram last night:
When all is said and done, this is unfortunate, but he’s lucky that community service is all he has to serve given the severity of his convictions.

Whether you had a rough week, a busy week, draining past few days, etc., take a moment to be still. I’ve had a pretty rough few years, let alone weeks or days, and I find some comfort in knowing that at any moment I can be still and take some deep breathes.
I have never handled stress too well, therefore need to take moments and force myself to be silent and relaxed. I’ve recently looked to others for inspiration and have began a daily yoga regimen. At some point of each day, I find time to be in total peace and quiet.
What’s your relaxtion method?

Being an Eagles fan, I have much anger towards the New England Patriots and their cheating ways. As many know, they’ve been under fire since being suspected of spying on other NFL teams, which essentially allowed them to know and anticipate their opponent’s play calling.
In their recent 45-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts, more fuel is being added to an already burning fire. There is an ingoing investigation against the Patriots in which 11 of 12 footballs were not inflated to the league standard during their AFC Championship victory. Having under inflated footballs, allows for better gripping and alters its path in-air.
It should be interesting to see this story unfold. Is it fair for them to advance at this point?
