Sunday Mind Frame: Relaxation

image

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?

Yes, yes yes…it’s true!  The two powerhouse artists came up with another genius decision by creating a trailer for their upcoming On the Run stadium tour.  Only these two seem to think of such out-of-the-box ideas that always seem to work.  The trailer is filled with top actors such as Sean Penn and Don Cheadle, but of course there’s usually a twist…the film is actually never being released (it’s a fake trailer).  BUT, if we know these two then we know that they may actually decide to release a film together.  I mean, the 3 minute plus snippet is pretty good!  Check it out:

What more can this power couple do to expand their brand and increase their net worth?  That’s right!  Do a 20 city stadium tour that could possibly be record breaking.  I had the pleasure of attending Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s Legends of the Summer stadium tour in Philly.  It was AMAZING!  Well, fans may get the chance to experience great music and excitement once again if the rumors are true about Jay and Bey coming together for something epic.  Live Nation hasn’t confirmed any of the buzz yet, but there could be some truth to the rumor and if it goes down, I’ll be there!  More updates will be coming soon!

Beyoncé Speaks on Owning Her Sexuality in “Out”!

There is no beating around the bush when discussing Beyoncé’s highly sexual lyrics and videos (i.e., Partition) and she has no problem explaining why she doesn’t care what the critics say.  If we thought that she was on a feminist trip, we were right!

Beyoncé tells Out, “There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists.  Men are free and women are not.”

Many find it hard to accept this newfound female power since much of her career started with open expressions of faith, religion and her love for the Lord.  Is she crossing a boundary or is she simply showing the world that you can be who you want to be?

Beyoncé goes on to explain, “There is unbelievable power in ownership and women should own their sexuality.”

She also explains her support for the LGBT community:

I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority.

People may not like her new platform, but she’s showing everyone that anyone can have a voice and a chance to make a difference.  Her plan seems to be working because her latest album has certainly created the type of buzz she needs to get her message of equality and sexual power out to a nation.

The latest issue of Out will be on stands within the next month.
