Accept it already!

    I've been reading a book strictly about the history of gays in America. And damn! Reading it angers me makes me happy at the same time. Yeah oppsite feelings. But it angers me because people are so fucking ignorant. Ignorgant people are the type of people who bother me most. Homosexuality has been around since the genesis of people (hehe, genesis), and people still look down upon people who were BORN homosexual. We know our history through art, and historical art has shown images of same-sex relationships and orgies traced back to centuries. Nothing new to what we see or hear now.
   There has been much progress since the beginning of time, but not close enough to what I beilive it needs to be. People opposing gays talk about them being perverted, hitting on people all the time, constantly having sex with other people. Gay people are PEOPLE, gay, but people. They're not dogs in heat, despreately trying to hump the nearest hole, and they shouldn't be talked about as such. They're people who want have their life long partner, a fling, or who just aren't interested in a relationship at the moment, just as any other hetrosexual person. It's the same thing.
    Why can't people get that through their thick ass skulls? Before talking down homosexuals, or anyone orthing for that matter, get informed. Know the struggles people live with everyday. Walk in their shoes. Then maybe you'll realize that being thrown into a locker, beat up, spit on, and listening to the various bad names isn't right. Being abused for who you are is not correct. How would you like to be beat up for being born with 7 fingers, one blue eye and one brown eye, or having a mullet? Not fun. Not cool.
    It's seriously time to accept however one is born and move one with your life. No protests of AIDS, the bible, or any other thing. The bible says you slavery is ok. Is it? No. So the bible doesn't apply to the issue affecting gays.
    Open your mind. Accept. And Live.

Acceptance and Love.

    Like most of us ladies, I have my insercurities. Even though we work out, buy that expensive foundation and wear the cutest clothes, there's something you still see as an imperfection. I am done trying to whine about this or that, I have come to accept who I am. My imperfections make me unique, but I also know I'm not alone. In the journey of becoming a young lady from a little girl, I have attained acne scars, stretch marks, weight, overbite, cellulite, and the list goes on. But so what if I broke out from eating too many hot cheetos and soda and so what if I let myself go for a bit, I don't need to be worrying about how I look on the outside, but rather the inside because that it really is what matters. I know people always say that, but it's true. No one is going to be a TRUE friend if you're a cold hearted bitch who just so happens to have the perfect hair, face and body. I'm not saying that people should just stop exercising, it's nice to keep your body looking good or and it's okay to have a few extra pieces of cake, or the whole cake! Whatever! Even though that cake alone could have been 1,000 calories, I don't care, it was yummy! So keep in my mind that perfection is unattainable, it's best to accept who you are and embrace what you got.
    There is things that I love about myself too, not to be concieted or anything, but I do. I love the natural color of my hair and how it shines in the sunlight. I love my full lips. I love the color beautiful color of my brown skin, my glow (No need for tans) and I love how I'm open minded, being able to put myself in someone's shoes, whether they're Airwalks or Louboutin's. A good friend, sister, cousin, brother, mother, girlfriend, whatever you may be, a good person is understanding. Narrow minded people just see it one way, and it isn't one way.
     People may have a blast making fun of others, knowing they have things about themselves that isn't up to their own standards. I have to admit I am guilty of saying, "That girl so doesn't wear size 1, especailly with that muffin" or "She needs to learn how to put on eyeliner", but I'm learning and accepting that I also have my faults. We all do. Learn to accept and learn to love.

First Time for Everything.

First attempt at creating a blog. Here we go!!

    On the drive over to the mountains today, Joe (my love :) and I were talking about how stuff in life just doesn't seem to go right at times. He was bummed out but I told him that things could be worse, because they really could be and to be grateful for what you do have.
    I'm grateful for having a family who loves and cares about me. There's many people out in this world who feel alone because they have lost contact with their family over a disagreement or sadly, death. Appriciate who's in your life and don't take their presence for granted. Even though it's sad to think about, but that one person who you cussed out today might be gone tomorrow. That's why, in my opinion, it's best to be forgiving or at least be optimistic. Live not in the past, but in the present; tomorrow is a day away. Carpe diem.
