#Trying to be a #Better Person

01/13/2012

By: Angel Elexa

I’m not big on forwards, especially those that require you to send to 20 people in the next 6 minutes.  However, every once in a while, I find one with useful information or just plain amusing that I’ll actually hit send to brighten someone else’s day.

Well, here’s one with some good advice from Tony Robbins that you could actually use to be a better, more thoughtful and compassionate person in 2012. 

We’re all about evolving and becoming optimal citizens of the world, right?  Take these 21 tasks and implement them into your everyday life.  See what you get in return.  Hopefully, a whole lotta of peace and blessing!  Remember to share this post on Facebook or Twitter with your friends. 

You don’t have to FORWARD this to get something you’ve wanted in the next 3 days….Just SHARE it to be NICE!

21 Tasks for 2012

ONE.  Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
 
TWO.  Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
 
THREE.  Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
 
FOUR.  When you say, ‘I love you’ , mean it.
 
FIVE.  When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

SIX.  Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
 
SEVEN.  Believe in love at first sight.
 
EIGHT.  Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t ave dreams don’t have much.
 
NINE.  Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt, but it’s the only way to live life completely.
 
TEN.  In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
 
ELEVEN.  Don’t judge people by their relatives.
 
TWELVE.  Talk slowly but think quickly.
 
THIRTEEN.  When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’
 
FOURTEEN.  Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
 
FIFTEEN.  Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.
 
SIXTEEN.  When you lose, don’t lose the lesson!
 
SEVENTEEN.  Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
 
EIGHTEEN.  Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship..
 
NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

 TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY-ONE.  Spend some time alone. Reflect and get to know you and what you want!

#Trying to Remain Calm….#IHateItWhen

I hate it when…you ask someone a legitimate question and they give you an F’d up ass answer.  Thanks for thinking I’m a dumb ass. 

So I visited Philly a few months back with the girls and we were kicking it at a wine spot, a little tipsy, and a lot of dancin’ to a little band that was jamming jazz and some r&b.  The guys in the band were doing their thang and we were having a great night.  Okay…..until, the lead guy comes over to the table and asks if we had any requests.  Nice, right?! 

Well, I politely asked if he could play any Ne-Yo.  Mind you, I had just heard a band in N.O. play Champagne Life in a hole in the wall club a couple of months prior.  I didn’t think my request was far fetched, but damn! The answer I got back was ‘rude as hell’.  I mean I wasn’t trying to belittle what the band was doing by any means, I just thought it would keep the party going. 

For real, don’t look at me like I’m stupid and say “Uh…NO! Why in the hell would we play that?!” Well, in my opinion don’t bring your ass over here and ask if we have any requests. So my non-drunk, crunk answer should have been, “You’re a motherf***in’ band asking for requests, aren’t you?! That’s why you need to play that “ish! You obviously ain’t that big yet to be turning folk down, now are you?”   I think I should’ve gone Evelyn Lozada on him and told him what’s real! Yes, I have anger mgmt issues and I need help.  Fortunately for him, I was lil’ tipsy and I just got quiet and festered until now….LOL

I’m jus’ sayin’, I hate it when people get their jollies off of making other people feel like crap.  You don’t have to TRY to embarrrass anyone to have control over the situation.  Just have some compassion and patience.  Yes, people do ask stupid questions, but Damn don’t you do the same thing, too?   Be helpful because you never know how that could lead to your next blessing.

I mean dude was kinda cute.  If he had played his cards rights, he actually coulda got it  🙂 

I’m jus’ sayin’!…SMH

LIVE Life…and Respect My Gangsta!

#WeLove Fedoras and #Fashionista s….#Style Profile

07/18/2011

Here’s an interesting question we found perusing the net.  What we thought was a Fedora is actually a Trilby.  Well, guess what we have in stock? Grey, Dk Brown and Ivory Trilby’s at TryingTwenties.com.

Reader Question: Trilby vs. Fedora

By Truth in Fashion | Published: June 27, 2011

Dear Truth in Fashion,

I see hats called fedoras, and others called trilbies, but I really don’t see a difference, are they the same thing?

Mindy

Dear Mindy,

They look a lot alike but actually have subtle differences. What we are seeing right now in fashion being called a fedora is most likely a trilby. A trilby hat has a thinner rim than a fedora. For some fun facts about the names of these hats, the trilby was named after a play based off of George du Maurier’s book, Trilby. In the play, one of the characters wore one of these hats. The fedora was also named after a play called Princess Fedora where the main character wore this style of hat.

Thanks Truth in Fashion!

Lesson Learned and I still get to be in Style!

LIVE Life…And get your terminology right.

#Trying to Make It Through….#Alliwantis

07/13/2011

For the week to be over!  It’s Wednesday.  Do you think I’m right on how you felt on Monday and Tuesday?!  This is definitely for those of us who have a 7-6 (putting in OT to get ahead of the game), a crazy professor, a raggedy boyfriend and an unappreciative manager.  And you can’t seem to understand why in the hell you are enduring the crap. 

Wednesday – CONFUSED

Cause you just don’t know whether to still be Mad or Happy that it’s the middle of the week. The jury is still out on that one.  Usually as you start making plans for Happy Hour on Thursday or Going out on Friday, or Hanging out on Saturday, you begin to come around and feel a little better.  Or you sway back to angry because you have to hang with the crazy in-laws, go grocery shopping or work on the weekend.

Thursday – DEVIOUS

Cause you know you’re about to get into something.  Either you’re about to kick someone in their teeth or stab them with a pencil at the job OR you can’t wait to get out there tonight and get a drank.  Yeah, I said DRANK (not drink).  My grown and sexy females get this! Either way you ain’t right…LOL  Just keep it classy 🙂

Stay tuned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday’s emotions.  I’m thinking you are feelin’ me on this one.  Hang in there! Life gets better  and when it’s your time to shine, you’ll rise on queue. 

LAUGH About It….Because sometimes you just got to!

Trying to Be Ready…#Endoftheworldconfessions

05/25/2011

So obviously the world did not end.  I think most Christians realized from years of teaching that we know not the day nor the hour….Just saying!  On that note, I’m glad we are still here and have another day to live life to the fullest and hopefully get things right.  Plus, I think I was probably doing something sinful anyway on Saturday.  It was happy hour somewhere….whatevs!  We are still here…Thank God! 

So if you get mad easily, don’t read this post!  It was something funny I saw online of course and thought you might get a kick out of other people’s renditions of what the end would look like.  Take it with a grain of salt and just realize that some people’s sense of humors are incorrigible.  Twisted, but true!  What would your end of the world pic look like? 

LIVE Life…for real tho’

So have these people disappeared? Perhaps they just laid out clothes and took a picture. We found dozens of them on TwitPic, many encouraged by Gizmodo — here’s a sampling of the best: It’s Happening: Top 10 Rapture Bomb Pics.
