#Trying to Remember #AmyWinehouse…

Because she was one of our TryingTwenties Sorors, we want to express our sympathy for Amy Winehouse, (Trying 27).  We were saddened to hear about her death, however, not surprised.  In these TryingTwenties years, we struggle with day to day afflictions that send our world in turmoil and turn it upside down.  We don’t often know how to handle the inconsistencies of life.  Some of us do better than others due to outside guidance and our upbringing.  Some of us are just lucky to figure life out at an early age.  There are some of us that never get the opportunity to really shine because of addictions and emotional issues holding us back from our true potential. 

Yes, I can be civil when needed.  There’s just some things that get me angry and I make incorrect decisions.  No one is above it, you just may be smarter at recognizing and dealing with the consequences.  That possibly comes with age. She didn’t make the best decisions regarding her health and life, so let’s remember Amy for the talent she had.  We jammed her music, we thought she was on point with that Jay-Z collab, so let’s remember her for the music and the good times she helped us all have. When she was sober she produced a bomb album and looked great, too!

It’s sad she’ll be apart of the “27 Club” and will go down in history as a great artist that died at 27.  But we should take a lesson of what brought on their demise.  Being 27 is hard enough, but it won’t kill you.  It’s the choices you make around that age that will.  Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse were talented individuals and drug abuse and other addictions sadly took them away from us prematurely.  Think about it, we are the ones deprived of great music and with their talent they could’ve been shuttin’ down the party for another 20 years.

If you don’t take anything else away from this post, know that life can be fun at this age, but don’t take it to the extreme.  If you need advice, counseling, rehab, whatev….Don’t be too proud to get it before it’s too late.  You’ll never know how awesome you could’ve been!

LIVE Life…and Try to Make Better Decisions!

REST IN PEACE, AMY! WE LOVED BACK TO BLACK!
