“I am the spotlight!”
Hey Divas & Divos! Did you check out tonight’s episode? Whoo hoo! Let the games begin!
Let me ask you something; and I really want to hear from you guys. Why is it that women, particularly black women, tend to tear each other down instead of understanding that there’s enough room at the top for all of us? I personally have learned that no one needs to lose, so I can win. I’m confident in who I am, thus my comment that “I am the spotlight!” That doesn’t mean I’m the only one who can shine and I sure didn’t mean to take anything away from Nene or her special day. I’m just saying … can’t we all just get along and shine?
Tonight’s episode was a clear example of female un-bonding and I was very disappointed by Diana’s comment that I was an opportunist. However, I do realize there is an opportunity for all of us to do better and that’s what I’m committed to!
I’m not sure what her whole, “I knew you longer Nene and these girls, (me in particular) don’t deserve to be in your life …” spiel was all about, but I do understand her loyalty, especially since she shared that she doesn’t have any family. And, I really appreciated the way Nene handled it. She was both fair and sensitive to everyone’s position. More importantly, she made sure her friends/bridesmaids understood that we all hold a special place in her life for whatever reason which is why she chose us. It truly isn’t about us and our drama, but Nene and this new chapter in her life. Kudos to her for that!
We all have a journey to walk and if it was easy, we’d all be walking it while wearing our five inch Louboutins, comfortably and without a care in the world. But that’s not the reality, so let’s lift each other up because if you’re a real opportunist, you would wake up every day knowing you have a chance to be better than you were yesterday and if we take advantage of it, we can all be winners in the end.
I truly do love where I am at this stage of life and want to see my whole fam, and yes, that means you too my loves, reach their goals. Catty isn’t cute, so I’m seeking my personal best in all aspects of life, and I wish the same for you.
Til next week …
